Hey there! It's the Saturday Reading Wrap-up with your host, B.E. Sanderson. :cue cheesy theme music:
I finally picked up some new ebooks this week. Which was good because I didn't have any left to read. I got a romantic suspense (which I'm reading now), a mystery, a paranormal mystery, and a paranormal romance. No new hardcopies.
33) That Night by CJ Grayson (5/12/21) - Suspense*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated. I picked this one up for free after hearing about it in a FB group I belong to.
Review: "A twisty, turny suspense that kept me hooked. I wasn't sure the author would be able to pull all the threads together, but everything was wrapped up by the end. And I totally didn't see it all coming down the way it did. "
32) The Virginian by Owen Wister (5/9/21) - Western/Literature - 5 stars. New to me, but old enough that it's got plenty of reviews. Still underappreciated, in my opinion, though. Picked this up at a thrift store for 50c.
Review: "This book is too awesome for words. If you haven't read it, you should."
5//10/21 - free - This billed itself as paranormal women's fiction but read like cozy paranormal mystery. It was written by a 'known, trad-pub name' in UF, but it had issues in it my own editor and proofreaders would've kicked my ass for. I probably would've weathered on for an indie, but I expected better and disappointment made me stop reading.
Currently reading... like I said above, I'm reading a romantic suspense. I had it listed as a cozy mystery. Boy, was that wrong. I mean it started out kind of like a cute cozy, but it became pretty suspenseful. I think it was the title that turned me in the wrong direction - Honeymoon Cottage. :shrug: I'm really enjoying it, so it's no biggie for me.
What were you reading this week?
