We’ve got Mrs. Giggles, whom I have referenced before. Obviously, one reason I like her is she reviews self-published books. The other is she’s a hoot.
I don’t read a fraction as much as she does, I’m not nearly as adventurous as she is, and I certainly don’t have the gift for reviewing that she does, but I trust her reviews.
So my latest purchases, based on her recommendation (and I buy self-pub when something catches my eye), were:
I’ll report back, but my TBR pile gets higher and higher. I may have to get another memory card for my reader or offload some of my bookshelf. It’s gettin’ a squeeze in there.
And oh, on my library hold list now:
- Natural Born Charmer by Susan Elizabeth Phillips*
- A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
- Zodiac: The Eco-Thriller by Neal Stephenson
- Trust Me by Brenda Novak**
*Susan Elizabeth Phillips is my favorite contemporary romance author. In one of her books (can’t remember which), she described the secondary hero in such a way as to make me visualize Tommy Lee Jones who, well, oh, hold me downIlovethatman! That said, I only have one SEP on my keeper shelf at that’s Kiss an Angel aka “The Circus Book” with the original cover.
**Never read Brenda Novak because for the most part, I don’t care for romantic suspense. But I found out a while ago, she’s LDS and okay, no big. Still not enough to get me to spring for romantic suspense, but then I found this comment (#2) on this review and I went, oh, hey!
Sister Novak, you naughty naughty woman you. I would so be your visiting teaching companion.
