This Wednesday I’m Reading…
The Big Alpha in Town: This is an anthology that was offered to me by the publisher a couple of months ago. It doesn’t release until May 15 so I decided to wait to start it until last week. I’m through the first story and hope to finish it up by the end of the week. The first story was alright but I have a couple of issues with it, but I’ll save that for the review.
Born of Night: I decided to download this audiobook while waiting for the next Charley Davidson or Mercy Thompson hold to free up. I hate to say it but I think I am going to DNF this audiobook. I’ve read it already in print and the narrator just doesn’t work for me. She is changing the characters too much for me with her interpretation of their voices. Also, what the hell. I don’t remember being this annoyed by the plot in my initial reading. Unfortunately, I don’t have a review to remind myself what I thought having read it pre-Goodreads. I know I liked it but for some reason, the characters are rubbing me the wrong way this time. Could it be the inflection that the narrator is bringing to the story or simply I’ve changed since the first reading? It could also be the environment in which I now live. I don’t like the current direction of our country with R’s in charge and the heaviness of this story is making me depressed. Perhaps I will need to save Ms. Kenyon’s work for a post-Trump reading environment.
Souls on Earth: Not much progress in this book last week. NF goes in spurts for me. I have until August to finish the book so that might be the problem. No pressure.
What are you reading this week?
