Well hello there. It's morning. I woke up tired. And I forgot to schedule this post, so bear with me.
I got two new books this week. I didn't mean to get two. I finished a book last night and went to go buy its sequel. Once clicked that sucker like my ass was on fire and it was water. And then I noticed I hadn't bought the second book. I'd clicked the third. Soooo, I went back and bought the second book, like I had originally planned. (And no, I'm not returning the 3rd book. I don't return books.) Here's hoping these are as awesome as the first one was. Speaking of which...
45) Sorcerer Rising (Virgil McDane #1) by E. Nathan Sisk (8/26/22) - UF Noir*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated. Free off the ENT newsletter. (Last night, when I bought the others, this was only 99c.)
Review: "Now, that was a frickin' awesome read. It was nowhere near what I thought it was going to be when I downloaded it. It defies any attempt to pigeonhole it into a genre. And I loved it. Any preconceptions you might have... this is going to blow them all to tiny bits of dust. Much the way Virgil tackles his ultimate nemesis. Which, by the way, was incredibly satisfying. I miss Tiffany. I wish the best for Sarah. I want Conrad to thrive. Most of all, I want to see Virgil continuing to kick ass through many subsequent novels.
And yeah, it took me a week to read. It's a big book with lots of intricate stuff going on in there, but none of it is a slog. It's action packed and you'll find yourself staying up later than you ought to, sneaking in time to read when you should be doing something else, and still having it take a while to read. It's worth it. Dive on in. Now I have to go slap my money down for the next book."
Currently reading... Nothing yet. I won't be diving into book 2 of the above yet. I don't like to read a series straight through. I'll cleanse my palate with something else first and go into #2 fresh.
What was on your reading plate last week?
