Happy day after Christmas or Boxing Day for them what celebrate it. Did Santa bring you any good things to read?
On Christmas Eve, I got myself four new ebooks - SF, mystery, cozy mystery, and paranormal. Christmas morning, an author I've enjoyed in the past put the first book of another one of his series up for free, so I snagged that, too. That one is a suspense.
86) Decker and Joy by Elle Rush (12/20/20) - Paranormal Romantic Holiday Mystery* - 5 stars. New to me, but not underappreciated. Free from the Robin Reads newsletter.
Review: "Not your typical paranormal romance. More like a holiday romance with cute paranormal and mystery elements. Whatever you call it, it was loads of fun and super cute."
85) Gloria by Jessica Lynch (12/19/20) - Romance*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated as far as reviews go. Free off the Robin Reads newsletter.
Review: " Super cute, fun, sweet romance."
12/22/20 - free. I started what was supposed to be a cute holiday paranormal romance by a best-selling author. (Or so it said.) Gah. Commas! They exist for a reason. Use them. Please. And if only two people are having a conversation, you don't need to name them every paragraph. Jane said. Mary said. Jane said. Mary said. :gouges out own eyes:
Currently reading... an urban fantasy. A little heavy on the banter for me, but the premise is good, so I'm forging through.
What did you read last week?
I upped my challenge to 205 when I hit 199 this week and now I'm currently 1 book behind schedule. I'll catch up now that the crazy of Christmas--which caused me to only get through 2 books--is done.ReplyDelete
200 - Burn for Me (Hidden Legacy #1) Ilona Andrews, 5 stars. Not new, not underappreciated, favorite authors and UF/paranormal romance series. After our friend Jen mentioned rading the series, I decided to hope back on the "crazy" train and relisten
199 - Dream Chaser (Dream Team #2) - Kristen Ashley, 4 stars. Not new to me, not underappreciated. Contemporary romance. I returned the audio book because I had to buy the Kindle in order to finish 2 chapters in the middle of the book because like over 50 pages of IMPORTANT STUFF was missing in the audio version. Totally on the publisher--Hachette. Yes, I named them. Their audio staff messed up the first book in this series but it wasn't so horrible I returned the book. Considering it now, except I feel bad for KA. She's a best-selling author and deserves better from her Big 5 International Publisher. The SOBs! Okay rant over. It was a fun book but I knocked a star off due to some dangling threads that may or may not continue to the next book, coming out later in 2021.
Currently reading THE AWAKENING, the new paranormal (romance?) from Nora Roberts, set mainly in Ireland with fae and maybe immortals and the heroine finding her destiny... It dropped from my hold list at the library. It's okay, so far, but I'm ready to get back to Nevada and "Mad" Rogan in the Hidden Legacy series.
