I read four books last month:
- The Hour Before Dark by Douglas Clegg
- Basil by Wilkie Collins
- Bypass Gemini by Joseph Lallo
- The Emperor’s Edge by Lindsey Buroker
I am not a horror fan, and I almost stopped reading The Hour Before Dark when it got to be the hour before dark. I kept going, though, and ended up being glad I did. It was a good story that kept me guessing up to the end. And then the very end took a, to me at least, very surprising turn. As I said, I don’t read horror so I don’t have a lot to compare it to, but I enjoyed this book a lot.
I have downloaded a number of Wilkie Collins book because people have told me they are good, but Basil is the first one I have read. And I thought it was a good book. It is, in some ways, a mystery. It made me curious about his other books, which I will probably read before long.
Bypass Gemini is a book I got through Humble Bundle. It is only the second of those books that I have read. I thought it was a good read. The story kept me going — although it was a bit predictable. I would definitely read more by Lallo.
The last book I read, The Emperor’s Edge, was one that I stayed up late to finish that last night of February (Something I had not been able or willing to do with The Hour Before Dark!). This is the first on a series that now has at least five books. It was a good story and has potential to develop into a good series. It is “high fantasy mystery”. I will probably get at least the second book in this series.
So now I am reading another book I got in a bundle somewhere. I have over 200 books on my ereader and others in my calibre library. I am not in danger of running out of books to read any time soon, and I keep getting more!
