In terms of reading and finishing books, this week was really good. In terms of reducing my TBR pile, not so much. It’s a good thing I’ve stopped trying to get it under control and just accepted that it’s crazy.
Dark Currents – A fun and humourous adventure story, the audio production was a bit rocky to start, but this was an overall good listen. I’ve already downloaded the next book to listen to.
Wind and Shadow – The cover tricked me into thinking this was YA, it most certainly is not. There was quite a bit of unexpected heat and sex, and an ending that left me highly annoyed at the characters’ actions.
Sea of Shadows – Oh god, I’m not even sure where to start. My exact reaction upon finishing was “Ah… Wha… But… Oh… I need book two now.”
Between the free books available on Smashwords as part of Read an Ebook Week, and “accidentally” comparing my wishlist shelf on Goodreads with a friend’s free-kindle shelf, I collected a few books this week.
Mini rant time: Most, if not all, of the above books are self-published. Some of the covers are amazing. And some make me want to *le sigh* and think “really, you think that will help sell the book”. Not everyone is willing to look past a poorly done cover. Please take the time to make an attractive cover, it’s not that hard.
