My newest video for Fiction Friday a series I am doing on my Booktube page. For those who are unaware Booktube is just Youtube for book nerds. Lots of us also post stuff about writing, too.

 

Fiction Friday is just where I read short bits of my own personal fiction, every first Friday of the month, except of course when inspiration is lacking.

 

I'm still so awkward reading to a camera. I wish I had this amazing memory and I could just remember the whole story, instead of looking and sounding like a fool. Ha ha. I'm also a total newbie when it comes to editing. I use my phone to record and edit, so please bear with me. I hope the quality gets better as I learn. Any tips welcome.

DNF: The Mirror Sisters
The Mirror Sisters - V.C. Andrews

No stars.

 

Possibly one of the worst books I've read from the VC Andrews ghost writer. 22% in and the thought of anymore makes me want to cringe. It's about identical twins. All I'm getting is how identical and how special they are. And I'm fed up already. The mother is an overbearing bitch who wants her super speshul twins to be identical in every way down to thoughts. She's not allowing them to play with other children because they might disrupt the twin's special identicalness. It's the same thing over and over and over. It's ridiculous and I can't stomach any more of this book.

 

Thank you to Netgalley and Gallery Threshold, Pocket Books for the chance to view the title.

I received a free copy of this book via First Reads giveaways on GR, Thank You.

It took a long time for me to finish this book, for as it turned out, reading a full length book in German is not as easy as it seems. But, I still think my dictionary and I managed to read it to the end and understand what was actually going on!

I thought the middle part could have been cut without actually changing the story. It was a bit more romance than I normally read, but it was OK. It won't be on my top lists, but it was a nice read all the same.

The Mirror Empire by Kameron Hurley
The Mirror Empire - Kameron Hurley

Series: Worldbreaker Saga #1

 

I generally expect more from Hurley's books. This was alright but my interest waxed and waned throughout the whole thing. There are some really cool concepts but a lot of stuff I could have just done without, and I wasn't all that keen on some of the characters, particularly Zezili. Even Lilia did some really stupid things. I wasn't impressed by her search for a mother who couldn't know her.

 

This book follows several characters in a fantasy world where several nations are at war, and the entire world is being threatened by invaders from beyond it. Oh, and there are binary suns that are so close together they form an hourglass shape in the sky. And walking trees that remind me of triffids.

 

I plan on reading the next book, but I'm not hopeful it'll be up to Hurley's usual standards. Maybe she needs worlds with spaceships to pull off awesome. And more ick factor.

Another Double Bingo!
A Spark of Justice - J.D. Hawkins
The Day of the Triffids - John Wyndham
Symphony of Ruin: A Labyrinth of Souls Novel - Christina Lay
One Blood - Qwantu Amaru
Carmilla - Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu
A Latent Dark - Martin Kee
Mirror Mirror - Anthony M. Strong
Mary Reilly - Valerie Martin
Sleepy Hollow: Bridge of Bones (Jason Crane) (Volume 2) - Richard Gleaves

OK so that's no surprise this late in the game. I've already commented on these books in previous Bingo posts so will just say the ones to read are A Spark of Justice, Mary Reilly and Bridge of Bones (2nd in a series)

 

One square left waiting for a call. But I thought there was one I dn't have still not called, so I'm confused.
