Saturday Reading Wrap-up - 1/8/22

Hello and welcome to the first reading wrap-up of 2022.  Gah, it's going to take a while to get used to typing 2022.  

I picked up one new ebook this week - a paranormal mystery.  I still have 5 ebooks left from December, too.  

Books Read:

2) Never Say Duke by Erica Ridley (1/4/22) - Regency Romance* - 5 stars.  I'm pretty sure I've read other stuff by Erika, and this definitely isn't underappreciated.  Got it off the Amazon Top 100 Free list (all books).
Review: "What an awesome story! Great characters, great romance, great plot. I loved it all. Including the end. :happy sigh:"

1) Black's Beach Shuffle by Corey Lynn Fayman (1/2/22) - Noir Crime*# - 5 stars.  New to me and underappreciated.  Found this one on the Amazon top 100 free noir list .
Review: "Taut and interesting suspense with an awesome main character. I really enjoyed this story, so much so that I spent the day inhaling it."

No DNFs this week.

Currently reading... A Zane Grey novel and loving it.

How did your first week in reading for 2022 go?

  1. My reading slump continues as evidenced by last week's dismal number. 😟 My 2022 GR goal is 150 books and at this rate, I may have to downgrade my expectations. I managed to finish 1 whole book last week. I'm now 1 book behind schedule.

    1 - You Slay Me (Aisling Gre7 #1), Katie MacAlister, Paranormal?UF romance. 4 stars. Not new to me, not underapppreciated. This books has a demon in Newfoundland form which always makes me laugh. I forget how dense the heroine can be, but it also has a dragon hero. There is no final HEA. And no, I won't be continuing the series. I read most of them back in the day before I lost interest.

    Up next? Absolutely no clue. There are books releasing in February and March where I'll at least re-listen to the last couple of books in the series to refresh my memory but I'll do so right before they release. This is just starting the 2nd week of January. Argh. Hopefully, I can dig something up today. I hope to cull some paper books from the library and maybe something will catch my eye and there will be an audio verison to borrow. 🤞🏼

    Happy reading!

    Update: Okay, I found some of Louis L'Amour's books available in audio from the the library. THE DAYBREAKERS are all checked out but SACKETT is available so I grabbed it. Can you say Sam Elliott playing Tell Sackett? Yummers! We'll see how it goes. 😂
