Lately, I’ve made an effort to read more and game less (darn you, Forge of Empires!). I’ve also cancelled my Netflix subscription to save money. Not sure that’s quite working out as I’ve purchased a couple (maybe several?) books of late.
I’m attempting to start 2020 with a reading blitz. I’m going to share my last 5 reads and some quick thoughts about them. Please be sure to let me know if you’ve read any of the books I’ve mentioned. Also, if you have book recommendations for me, leave them in the comments.
1. Shattered Bonds (Jane Yellowrock #13) by Faith Hunter. This book continues my urban fantasy reading kick! I had really missed Jane, Bruiser, and the gang. Unlike previous books in this series, this one was set in Asheville, North Carolina. I did miss New Orleans a bit. Overall a solid addition to the series. 4.5 stars
2. Shadow Hunter (Rosie O’Grady’s Paranormal Bar and Grill #1) by B.R. Kingsolver. Another urban fantasy read. First time I’ve picked up something by this author. Not bad, but it started slowly for me (in an info dump kind of way!). The characters grew on me, and the action kept me interested. 3.5 stars
3. Night Stalker (Rosie O’Grady’s Paranormal Bar and Grill #2) by B.R. Kingsolver. Continuing with urban fantasy and the same author…overall, a better read than the first book. Lots of action, but I wanted to see more character development. Still like the “scooby gang” and the bar, but it helps if the heroine isn’t perfect at everything she does. #justsayin 4 starsContinue reading “My Last 5 Reads”
A quick trip to Florida provided much needed sunshine and mild temperatures. Read mild—not overly warm, and definitely not hot. … Continue reading A Winter Beach Day
