Well hello, beautiful people! Just a random thing. Did you know you can get free books from Amazon as long as you have a Prime membership? It’s called Amazon First Reads, and every month you get to select from several new release titles and choose one. This month you get to pick two! All you have to do is type Kindle First Reads into the Amazon search bar and it should take you to the page for it. But yeah, free! I just thought I would share this very valuable information with you. I also feel like I’ve shared this before…
What I Read This Week
Immortal In Death by J.D. Robb
Book three in the In Death series. A top model is found brutally murdered and Eve’s best friend is a suspect. I loved how Eve struggled with being both a cop and a friend in this book. It’s not the only time in this series this happens, but it is the first.
Rapture in Death by J.D. Robb
Book four! Eve is called upon to investigate an apparent suicide, but everything is not as it seems. This one did a good job of hiding the killer until the very end. I appreciated that the first time I read it.
Decieved by the Gargoyles by Lillian Lark
The story of a witch tired of dating people who are just after her for her family’s name, so she goes to the magical matchmaker to set her up, but it doesn’t turn out the way she expects. I’m trying to read more romance books to give the genre more of a chance, but y’all. Y’all. If you like very spicy books, go for it.
Ceremony in Death by J.D. Robb
In this, the fifth book in the series, Eve is called upon to investigate the suspicious death of a fellow officer, which plunges her headlong into the world of the occult. This was a solid entry into the In Death series, though not as good as the last few.
Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon
A group of young women are abducted and then are left stranded on an alien planet. There Georgie, the unofficial leader of the group, must venture away from the crash site and find help. What she finds is a seven-foot-tall blue alien. TikTok put this on my radar a while ago, and while I was debating reading it, I finally just gave in. It was okay for a spicy book. It actually had a plot to it, and I found the language barrier a thing you don’t often see visualized in a lot of sci-fi books.
Would you believe that I was too busy reading and worrying if my power was going to go out that I didn’t actually post anything? It just completely slipped my mind. Ah well. Tomorrow is a new week.
I started off the week with a post about how I’m going to read my way through the In Death series.
Tuesday was a list of books with names in the title. This was a fun list to come up with.
WWW Wednesday was up next. You can see how my reading has really progressed as opposed to last month.
Thursday was my January reading wrap-up. It was a pretty decent list considering how my month went.
Friday just so happens to be First Lines Friday. I picked a book I’m hoping to get to this month.
Top Ten Tuesday and WWW Wednesday are tied for my most popular posts of the week.
In Other News
They released character posters for Amazon’s Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. They are stunning. We have no idea who is who, but they are still fabulous nonetheless. I got this poster from Theonering.net. You can see the rest of the posters there.
