This month, I hit the mother lode.
Or maybe I just got taken and asked for my email to get spammed to hell and back, but in short, I found the end all to beat all of free and low cost books.
Also someone I know seems to think Nemo might make a pretty decent graphic novel. We’ll see.
And oh damn. Is that ANOTHER silver hair???
It seems this was a pretty good month for reading and it was. So in no particular order…
For starters – Dempsey’s Demons. Sorry, no cover. It was one of those author offerings for downloading a book book. A horror short story of interesting thoughts. Mainly, what if one’s conscience took human form? Or if not one’s conscience, the demons we all try (well, most of us) to keep tamped down where no one knows about them? What if those demons took human form? Hmmm?
The main reason why it looks like I had a good month was the amount of novellas I read this month. Quite a few. For those who remember, Lana Harvey is a reaper and a special one at that. This little novella takes place right after the last book of the series that I’ve read. (There are 1 or 2 after this and I’ve not purchased them yet. Money has been a mite tight.) Either way, what happens when our girl goes to work and leaves The Lord of the Flies to decorate for Christmas…
I tried to leave a review for this on Amazon. Amazon was not being cooperative. I loved this when I read it on Watty. I loved it again. Thank you, Carly.
Yet another friend who has now been writing professionally for some years. Normally, she write a genre I won’t read (slash) but this was a freebie some years back and after sitting on my kindle, I finally pulled it up. Glad I did. Short, so not sweet and so not kind.
So remember that list of books on Genevieve’s Ipad? All about vengeful knights and such? Well this is one. There are 4 in the series and of course, I loved this one, started the second one and had all sorts of triggers go off. I’ll get over them. I love a hot knight too much!
The third and final installment of this series. In which, we have a spectacular build up and a quick and neat wrap up that is typical Sophie/Lexi Blake. I’ve gotten used to slow heat for the relationship and then wham bam bam bam neatly tied in a bow for the action in the last 15 pages of her earlier works. This is no different. The unexpected thing with this, is this is apparently an alternative world for her Bliss series. Yeah, if you’ve read the Bliss series, you’ll find all the main characters here as well… in an alternative setting.
This is the beginning of the series. I actually like this. Unusual premise where the patriarch of the family – who in this case happens to be the eldest brother of 5 children – is a manipulative shit. Really. You have to read this one to believe it. Well written and the sex was lovely. The plot wasn’t too shabby and it was hysterical in places.
I mean, how many people will spend their wedding night – WITH THEIR BRIDE and the bride’s baby (and no the father isn’t the man she married) – in the Red Room of a brothel???? I’ll just leave it at that.
7 books. Not to bad.
Tomorrow is hump day. It used to be my lovely day but it’s not anymore. Don’t ask. I’m hoping to get some writing done and possibly…. maybe…. contemplate Nemo as a graphic novel. See what that’s all about.
12 days to spring break. Gad, I need it!
