Since this is the last day of the year, I wanted to set this post for as late as possible, so yeah, if you're seeing this Saturday morning, it's really a Friday post. Really. And Happy New Year!
No new books this week. I still have six ebooks left from earlier in the month and scads of hardcopies.
70) The Reluctant Detective by Tom Fowler (12/31/21) - Noir Crime* - 5 stars. New to me, but not underappreciated. Free off Top 100 Free Noir list at Amazon.
Review: "It started with me not being sure I'd even like the main character, but all in all, it was a pretty good read and whether he came around to being likable or I just came around to appreciating him, CT's an okay guy."
69) Mystic Pieces by Ada Bell (12/28/21) - Paranormal Mystery* - 5 stars. New to me but not underappreciated. Free from an Amazon recommendation.
Review: "Cute and fun."
12/28/21 - MG Literature from my collection - I just couldn't get into it.
Currently reading... I didn't pick up anything new to read today because I wasn't sure what I wanted to start the new year with. I feel like it ought to be something special, ya know?
Oh, and I didn't reach my 75 book goal for the year, but I made a valiant effort, so no regrets here. We'll see what next year's goal will be.
How was your last reading week of the year?
Obviously seeing this later on Saturday. I DID reach my 200 book challenge, but only because I had to read two of my own books to fully edit them. Not exactly cheating. Anyway, I managed 4 books to complete the challenge.ReplyDelete
200 - Miss Frost Ices The Imp: A Nocturne Falls Mystery (Jayne Frost Book 2) - Kristen Painter - paranormal cozy mystery. 4 stars. It was cute but I'll admit I'm not a big fan of romance triangles. I'll probably come back to the series at some point but taking a break for now.
199 - Cafe Midnight - Silver James - supernatural detective noir. 5 stars. What I said below. Besides, this book is a hoot IM(not so)HO. So there.
198 - Bride's Moon (Moonstruck, #5) - Silver James. 5 stars. Stop laughing. I can rate my book high if I want too.
197 - Miss Frost Solves A Cold Case - Kristen Painter - paranormal cozy mystery (?). 4 stars. It was cute and in keeping with a light-hearted holiday read. I'd read this one several years ago and I know the author so, there ya go.
Currently reading nada, zip, zero. I have no clue what to pick up next but I'm already sort of jonesing for something, I just haven't figured out the "flavor" I'm hankering for yet. Hopefully, something will pop up.
Happy New Year of reading! 💖📚🥰
