Recent Reads

I’ve been doing quite a few book reviews, since I usually get a bit behind with those during the semester. I’ve also started going through the plethora of e-books I got for free at some point. There are so many of those hanging out on my Kindle that it gets discouraging when I think about it.  Sure, some free e-books are worth about what I paid for them, but some of them are truly worthwhile finds.  The last two I’ve read have actually been really enjoyable.

Lulu’s Cafe, by T.I. Lowe:  Honestly, I enjoyed this book so much!  The main character, Leah, has been through a horrific, abusive relationship that she is desperate to escape from when she ends up in the small town of Rivertown.  She’s taken in by Lulu, who recognizes a woman in need of healing, but Southern gentleman Crowley is not so easily convinced. Leah’s journey is wrenching, but life in Rivertown is so enchanting that I wanted to move there!

Embers, by Karen Ann Hopkins:  I do read a lot of YA paranormal, but this one was different, and I enjoyed it so much.  I had a few personal issues with the mythos here, but I liked the characters a lot.  The setting was a totally different choice for a paranormal, too, and that made it really refreshing.

  1. But I heard your absolute favorite was The Creepers Saga and that if you were on a desert island it would be the only series you’d need lol…okay maybe a stretch. You know I still can’t enjoy the ebook format yet even though I read so many other things on the screen…odd.

    1. Obviously, The Creepers Saga is my favorite apocalyptic series. But, seriously, isn’t it bad enough that I have to wait until October for The Walking Dead? When is your next installment going to be available? Inquiring minds want to know….e-books took me a long time to get used to. I still prefer actual books, but for instant gratification (or free books), it’s hard to beat my Kindle.
