Hi there. Not a bad week, per se. I started with a good book and I finished with a good book, though, so yay.
I picked up 7 new ebooks this week - 2 UF, 2 mysteries, a suspense, a fantasy, and a paranormal suspense. Still no new hardcopies.
48) The Girl in the Plain Brown Wrapper by John D. MacDonald (6/12/20) - Hard-boiled Crime - 5 stars. Neither new to me nor underappreciated. I've had this old paperback for years but never read it until now.
beginning was a little wandering and the very end made me feel like I
missed something (which I probably did), but all in all an enjoyable
47) Pricked by Scott Mooney (6/6/20) - Paranormal Mystery*# - 5 stars. New to me and while it does have loads of ratings at Goodreads, it lacks more than 50 reviews there or at Amazon.
a fun story! Great premise. Awesome characters. Thrilling mystery.
Superb world-building. I loved the whole thing, including Briar and the
whole gang. It'll be interesting to see where Mr. Mooney goes next with
6/10/20 - SF/F... literally. It started out with a pretty good, albeit weirdly laid out, SF story, which then began to morph into a fantasy. The characters were having a tough time wrapping their heads around it and so was I.
6/9/20 - YA Paranormal - It seemed interesting, but the asides were killing it, and then it got all whiny and preachy. Just tell the damn story without trying to foist your opinions on our unsuspecting youth. K?
Currently reading... Since I finished that crime novel at about 8 last night, I didn't want to start up something new. I'll probably read the paranormal suspense next because it's by someone I know and love.
What's on your reading list for last week?
