Keeping to latest determination to get back on BL, I've been trying to figure out changes, new functions, etc. Have sinking feeling that it’s gonna be a somewhat slow & labourious task b/c for one thing, noticed that some personal HTML are now...changed? Frex, why are quotes all centered? And text w/in spoiler tags in bold? *sigh* So much for hitting ground running via old cheat sheet :(
I also spent waaaaaay too much time checking & off-loading 200+ followers for various reasons. Don't wanna be mean or offend anyone (and I assume that most are the result of BL's automatic 25 (or whatever) followings upon initial account creation) but I really don't want or need non-readers, lurkers, or obvious young'uns following me :)
Bottom line, this means that instead of back-tracking & doing mini-posts on most of my 2015 reads, I'm only gonna do quick notes here for posterity & then move on. My short TBR is quickly becoming not-so-short & fair growling at this point!
Highlander Most Wanted by Maya Banks [2013 HR (MMP/audio) ★★★½]
Rules for a Proper Governess by Jennifer Ashley [2014 HR (MMP/audio) ★★★★]
Stone Cold by David Baldacci [2007 Suspense/Political Thriller ★★★]
Highly unusual for me but I jumped in mid-series by reading this book (Camel Club #3). And par for course, Murphy's Law promptly kicked in. Technically, one can read this in vacuum & still enjoy it but it's not a true ‘stand-alone’ b/c one storyline (centered on Annabelle) is a continuation of what occurred in book #2. Needless to say, I was a bit lost whenever the book shifted to that subplot.
So what do I do? Yup, backtracked to beginning and read The Camel Club (★★★), tried but couldn't get into The Collectors (figures, right?), so jumped over #4 and read Hell's Corner (★★★★). Shame that I didn't stop then; after some thought, reversed back to #4, Divine Justice (★★).
I should note that I first tried audio format for most of the above. Unfortunately, Ron McLarty's narration didn't work for me. My overall/lingering impression re: aborted listens was that he sounded fatigued, which isn't the best for suspense/mystery. :(
