Happy Independence Day! And welcome to another reading wrap-up. Just a quick aside... Ain't it great to live in a country where you can read whatever you want without fear of recrimination?**
I did pick up three new ebooks - urban fantasy, cozy mystery, and mystery.
55) Pixie Me Up by Willow Mason (7/2/20) - Paranormal Cozy Mystery* - 5 stars. New to me and could be more appreciated, but not quite underappreciated. Free off the Book Adrenaline newsletter.
So cute and fun!"
54) Hide by Lisa Gardner (6/30/20) - Suspense - 5 stars. Neither new to me nor underappreciated. I picked this up last year from one of the thrift stores for 17c. It's on my keeper shelf now.
was awesome. If you like suspense, and you haven't read this one yet,
read it. I'm sorry I had never read it before now. So good."
53) Live Fae or Die Trying by Jenna Wolfhart (6/27/20) - UF* - 5 stars. New to me but not underappreciated. Free off the Book Barbarian newsletter.
I really enjoyed this one. Different premise with interesting
characters. A bit of romantic stuff and loads of snark, plus suspense
and thrills and twists. I wasn't sure who the real villain was until the
reveal at the end. Just what I like."
7/3/20 - Historical Mystery. Free. The whole beginning of the book felt like the author didn't want to waste one little bit of the research they'd done and they were going to shove every last morsel of it into the book. It definitely needed more story and less tiny detail. Meh.
6/27/20 - Suspense. Free. Meh. I read through the prologue and part of the first chapter, but something was off about it and I didn't want to read anymore.
Currently reading... I haven't started anything since I DNF'd that mystery. Not sure where I'm going from here.
**Unless, of course, you get caught reading the 'wrong' book. Then there'll be hell to pay. =o(
