Updates: Family & Book Buying
Kel Wednesday, August 13, 2014My sister was visiting from Florida last week, so I was busy, busy, busy. We did the beach/boardwalk, which means caramel popcorn; the county fair, where I realized I haven't been around large livestock in quite some time >.>; a day out watching my dad play tennis at a beautiful country club (with a BOWLING GREEN!) that donates court time to the old guys tournament; and we watched "Noah." It was a disaster movie. Pun intended. ;)
I grabbed this ebook for free and didn't fully realize until after I finished, but it's self-published. (At least I think it is?) And it was good! Not my new favorite book, but overall I enjoyed the story and characters. And I don't remember a single typo. When I get that kind of quality for free, I'm willing to spend a little on the sequel, which is now waiting on my Nook. If you're interested in giving this YA fantasy adventure (with limited romance!) a shot, the first book is free on all platforms.
Also, this week featured an email fail. I was clicking random buttons on Edelweiss and stumbled upon a tab saying my early July request for an eARC of Claire Legrand's Winterspell had been approved. Unlike all ARC requests from everywhere, ever...I never got an email. :( Needless to say, I am now reading it.
And I fell prey to a bout of book buying. My sister informed me my copy of Blackwood ...
Which meant a trip to Amazon and ended with three...
And then Better World Books had a 24-hour 40% off sale...
Yep, I fail. ^^;
That's it for this week. Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of Dragonswood by Janet Lee Carey!
