Hello again! It was a good reading week here.
I picked up one new ebook - a suspense. And I received 9 old paperbacks from a friend who was weeding down her collection - 3 Agatha Christies, 4 Rex Stouts, and 2 Piers Anthony. Squee.
24) Elephants Can Remember by Agatha Christie (4/9/21) - Mystery - 5 stars. Neither new to me nor underappreciated. Paid a box lot price which included shipping.
Review: "Ooo, that was a good one."
23) Ogre, Ogre by Piers Anthony (4/7/21) - Fantasy - 5 stars. Neither new to me nor underappreciated. Paid a box lot price which included shipping.
Review: "I repeatedly read this way way back when I was a teenager. I haven't read it since, until now. While some of the puns weren't quite as funny as when I was younger, it's still a pretty awesome book. And it now has a treasured place on my bookshelf."
22) The Case of the Perambulating Hatrack by Cedar Sanderson (4/3/21) - Paranormal Noir Mystery* - 5 stars. Not new to me, but a new release so probably underappreciated at this moment. Paid full price when Cedar let it be known that it was live on Amazon.
Review: "So much fun! A perfect blend of old P.I. noir and new urban fantasy. If Spillane and Butcher had a love-child, it would be Solly. Who would've guessed I could fall in love with an orc? Oh, I loved all the other characters, too. (Nettle was my favorite after Solly.) I loved the plot and the mystery. I thoroughly enjoyed the world-building. Definitely different in a totally good way. I can't wait to read another one of these."
Currently reading... Not sure what I'll pick up next. Maybe the NF title I one-clicked by accident. Maybe a Rex Stout. Tune in next week to find out. ;o)
