Hello! It's Reading Wrap-up time again! Yay!
Okay so maybe it wasn't a great week for reading, but it's morning. I have coffee and a cigarette and woke up this morning, so life is good.
I picked up one new ebook this week. It's the first in a cozy mystery series my mom's been reading and enjoying. Lucky for me, the first one was on sale because the rest are $7.99. Most likely I'll read this one and, whether I enjoy it or not, skip the rest. All apologies to the author, but I can't afford $8 a book, let alone the $64 for the rest of the series. Damn you, Penguin.
Oh, and I forgot... I managed to slip into a thrift store last week and picked up three new old paperbacks - Dick Francis, Michael Crichton, and Phyllis Whitney. I don't recall having read any of these titles, so yay.
Nothing finished this week.
8/12/20 - free - supernatural thriller. The premise seemed interesting and the writing was okay, but I didn't like the characters.
8/10/20 - free - urban fantasy. Argh. Do the world a favor and hire an editor for pitysakes. The number of GLARING mistakes in the first few pages alone should be sufficient cause for death by white-out. And it really sucks because the premise sounded good and with some basic proofreading, it could be a fun book.
8/8/20 - free - mystery. OMG, maybe if you spent less time telling me how virtuous your character was on the hotbutton issues of the times, and got to the damn story, I would've gone further than a few pages into your book. I want to read a mystery, damn it, not be preached to. Blerg.
Currently reading... Dream of Orchids by Phyllis A. Whitney.
What did you read this week? Anything good?
