I’ve made my concession to a Bingo strategy now: I’ve got two lines read and am waiting for the remaining squares in them to be called. To do this I read two uncalled squares:
I started to read “The Ice Beneath Her” for this square but although it was good Scandi-noir, I found it too depressing for my present mood so I switched to “Huntress Moon”, This was thoroughly enjoyable American Noir and has opened up a new series for me.
“Civil Blood” is a self-published novel with an original take on a new kind of vampire produced by a plague manufactured and released by accident.
There were some great action scenes, lots of good ideas and some interesting characters but the pace was uneven and I didn’t think the courtroom scenes worked well enough.
With ten books on the board, I’m now letting myself follow my fancy for the next reads. I have three books on the go at the moment. Two were planned. The third demonstrates my lack of impulse control
The reading list for Relic and Curiosities put me on to “Angelfall”, a Young Adult series set in a post-apocaéyptic America where the apocalypse has been caused by an invasion of avenging angels.
I’m only 16% in but I’m already certain I’ve found a new series to read
I’ve started “Dark Matter” for the Terrifying Women” square.
It’s a slightly odd choice as there are no women in it but now the weather is turning, I fancied a trip to the Arctic.
That would have been it, except audible finally released “Lethal White”, the fourth Robert Galbraith book – all twenty-two hours of it. I can’t pass that up so I’m going to read it and then figure out what square to use it on.
