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.
