 It’s amazing how much you can read when your evenings are free. I have been enjoying getting back into reading and have been pleased with what I have read lately.

FINISHED SINCE THE LAST UPDATE:

Book Cover Image: The White Road by Sarah Lotz

Kiersten White’s reimagining of Vlad Dracul and his rise to power gets stronger and stronger. There is something about watching someone as fierce and determined as Lada not being given her due because of her gender that makes me want to take up a sword myself.

I flew through Lisa Jewell’s latest novel. There are some major flaws with it. I figured out the mystery man’s identity well in advance, and I couldn’t stand one of the characters. Yet, I found myself unable to stop reading it. The story drew me in so much that I didn’t mind having figured out the mystery and my dislike of one of the characters was not enough to diminish my enjoyment of it.

The latest Sarah Lotz novel is an engaging, tension-filled adventure story. I tore through it in two days and now have a greater appreciation for mountain climbers, even while I question their sanity.


DID NOT FINISH:

Book Cover Image: Impossible Views of the World by Lucy Ives

" data-orig-size="265,400" sizes="(max-width: 199px) 100vw, 199px" aperture="aperture" />

This was just an odd book. I’m sure it is highly entertaining, but the verbiose and pretentious language kept me from becoming interested in the story. Plus, after one-third of the way through it, I had no idea what the conflict of the story actually was. No clear direction, language that sounds like someone was trying to use their SAT vocabulary, and a character who was a snob made this something I had no interest in continuing.
