I had a $5 certificate for Thriftbooks and a 20% off coupon so I stocked up. I was extremely happy to see Lost and Found back in stock. I somehow managed to acquire books two and three in the series years ago, but was never able to find the first one. Yay, I can finally finish reading the series.

Unfortunate DNF
Doon - Lorie Langdon,Carey Corp

The best way to describe the writing is middle grade level, yet the story is handling new adult themes.

 

OK at first, and it did improve...I was enoying it even.But it got a lil ridiculous when it came to the girls meeting and interacting with their love interests. I realized I couldn't do another half book of giggling nonsense and decided to move on.

Reading progress update: I've read 26%.
Doon - Lorie Langdon,Carey Corp

A quarter of the way through and I am enjoying this book way more than I expected.

 

I sampled it because the book kept appearing in my IG feed with good reviews. 

 

In short, it's a YA series based on the tale of Brigadoon ( yep just like the movie).  The series is three books deep, with a fourth due out next year.

 

The writing is not amazing, at times I feel it's almost too simplistic -  but there's something about it that just keeps me turning the pages. The descriptions of Brigadoon are well done.

 

The first three books are on sale for Kindle for $1.99 USD each if you want to check them out.

 

Oh and cover love!

From Doon With Death by Ruth Rendell
From Doon With Death - Ruth Rendell

 



Read by................ Terence Hardiman
Total Runtime......... 5 Hours 28 Mins

Description: Margaret Parsons is dead. She appeared to lead a very dull life. She had been a "good" woman. Religious, old-fashioned, and respectable, her life had been as spotless and ordinary as her home, as unexciting and dependable as her marriage. However, it was not because of her life that Chief Inspector Wexford became involved, but her death. How is it possible that a woman who had led such a quiet, respectable, unspectacular life could have met such a death of passion and violence? To Wexford, it simply does not make sense, until he begins to slowly uncover the layers of Margaret Parsons' real life...

Okay mystery, but the writing is wonderful. Looks like I will enjoy this series.

Looks like I have a lot to read this summer! This isn't even half of the books I would like to read this summer. I would also like to read the Outlander Series by: Diana Gabaldon. I don't know how much of this I will accomplish, but I am excited to find out! There are also a couple of standalone novels I want to read and a couple of non-fiction books. I will probably hold off on The Book Thief until summer starts as well. I'm finding it a little slow. I would love to participate in a Read-a-thon this summer, as well! Thanks so much for reading!

 

Have a fabulous day lovelies!

 

Yours truly, signing off!
