Time to check out my progress and see if I’m made any changes to my picks.
The Crepes of Wrath by Sarah Fox: Finished
I received this ARC in exchange for a review during a blog tour with Great Escapes Tours. However, since my review was less than 3 stars, I had to bow out. I published my review on GR quietly before the tour so as not to clash with the tour. It’s a cozy mystery without the fun, lackluster characters, so-so mystery, and a stupid-decision-making protagonist. I didn’t feel anything while reading and even now it’s just…eh.
Bounty by Michael Byrnes: Finished
ARC Source: Goodreads
It’s a science fiction hacker thriller following a team of investigators trying to take down “eBay for assassins”. I ramble quite a bit about this system, which is more thought provoking and thorough than the tagline. My review is scheduled for the 22nd. Or take a peek on Goodreads.
The Dollhouse by Fiona Davis: Finished
ARC Source: Meaghan Walsh Gerard’s ABEA giveaway.
My review is scheduled for the 17th. It’s a historical mystery wrapped up in a contemporary tale as the MC drowns in her own drama and tries to untangle a mysterious woman’s past. Read June by Miranda Beverly-Whittmore instead.
ARC Source: won from Lily Anderson (thanks!)
My review is scheduled for the 15th. It’s a contemporary romance drama with a bunch of high school nerds. Also, retelling of Much Ado About Nothing. This was a really fun, light, quick read.
Pgs. 352 Recommendable? Hell yes. Rating: 4 Stars
I’ve also read Rootless, Starters, Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies; Highly Illogical Behavior, and Absolute Brightness. These 6 count for #ReadThemAllThon, which means I’m only two books away from all the badges. 😀
I’m reading the second to last right now: The Gentleman by Forrest Leo. I started it yesterday on a work break. 10 pages in and the best part is the footnotes so we’ll see…
I’ll still have more ARCs to read, but if I overshoot it means I might be able to move books around for more points. 😈
I’m still working on the reviews for them though. I might do another round of half-pint reviews like the above at the end of the month to catch up.
I write really slowly and it’s just not flowing for me lately but I need those points!
