Reading progress update: I've read 40%.
The Twilight Swimmer - A.C. Kavich

I can't decide if I want to finish this. Setting aside the formatting issues and the grammatical errors, I just read a terribly unbelievable scene. The Swimmer is at least a hundred feet or more under water, locked inside a metal locker in a sunken ship, and he somehow hears Brandi's voice which is miles away, over land on the surface. Fantasy can be told in a way to be believed, but damn if that is NOT it. I have been willing to play along with the Swimmer hearing speech underwater when he is directly below a boat. But this is so far beyond the realm of possibility that I just don't know if I can go on. What do you think?

While this story is good enough, the ebook needs some serious editing and formatting. There are no spaces between scenes, so you don't even know when you jump from one location and time to another. Very disorienting.

Ooww. An aquatic ape story. That seems like a nice, fresh take on things.

February TBR
Cry Wolf - Patricia Briggs
The Twilight Swimmer - A.C. Kavich
The Blood of Olympus - Rick Riordan
Nevernight - Jay Kristoff
Artemis: A Novel - Andy Weir
The Rules of Magic - Alice Hoffman

I managed to complete my entire January TBR and then some. But that doesn't mean I am going to get too cocky on my abilities. So I am still keeping my list manageable, and if I overshoot, that's just gravy. Finally going to finish the Heroes of Olympus series so I can move on the Magnus Chase or Apollo. And my copy of Nevernight is signed, so that's cool. I love collecting autographs.

 

 

For surviving the flu, my husband bought me this gorgeous Princess Skystar. Other than this, nothing much is happening. I am out of physical therapy and feeling very good about my hip and back. They said I had progressed in leaps and bounds. I was also ridiculously flexible in most respects, to the amusement of my therapist. I could bend ways they couldn't. It sort of became a competition. I will miss those people.

 

Also, this is a potoo. You're welcome.

Twilight at Blueberry Barrens
Twilight at Blueberry Barrens (A Sunset Cove Novel) - Colleen Coble

This is the third book in the Sunset Cove series and it is my least favorite by far.  

 

Kate is the main focus of this book and she is somehow both bold and brave and completely stupid at the same time.  The author is making her out to be this brazen woman who speaks her mind but then she is doing some pretty dumb things.  There have been reports of a peeping tom in the area where she lives and then a woman is found murdered but Kate can´t sleep so she decides to go sit outside on the porch at night and sip a cup of tea.  I was really annoyed by several instances in the book when she realizes someone has been in her house or she hears a noise in her basement but she doesn´t want to tell anyone or report it to the police because they will just think she is overreacting.  I also knew who the murderer/rapist/peeping tom was well in advance and was hoping I was wrong but no.....  There was other stuff going on too that I didn´t see coming so that was good.  Instead of a strong character though, Kate comes off as weak and whiny.  

 

Kate meets Drake when he comes to Maine to investigate the deaths of his brother and sister-in-law. The police believe it was a murder/suicide but Drake is sure his brother would never kill his wife.  He rents a cottage from Kate and hires her to be a nanny to his two nieces who are now in his care.  Of course he is perfect in every way and falls in love with Kate while they work to unravel the details of what happened.  

 

This is my book for Square 14.

Book themes for Dies Natalis Solis Invicti: Celebrate the sun and read a book that has a beach or seaside setting. –OR– a book set during summertime. –OR– set in the Southern Hemisphere.
