Friday Reads - June 22, 2018
Wishing Lake (A Finding Home Novel) - Regina Hart
After the Eclipse: A Mother's Murder, a Daughter's Search - Sarah Perry
The Spirit of '76: From Politics to Technology, the Year America Went Rock & Roll (Kindle Single) - David Browne
Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood - Trevor Noah
Cafe Au Lait - Liane Spicer
Welcome to Last Chance - Cathleen Armstrong
If Ever I Would Leave You: A Montana Rescue Prequel - Susan May Warren
Submerged - Dani Pettrey

This week I read Wishing Lake by Regina Hart (my favorite in the Finding Home series...so far), After the Eclipse by Sarah Perry, and The Spirit of '76 by David Browne. I hope to get to reviewing those books over the weekend.

 

Something is screwy with USAFE's e-lending system, so I had to put One in a Million on the backburner until the system is working again.

 

This weekend I want to get Trevor Noah's Born a Crime (borrowed a physical copy from library) and Café Au Lait by Liane Spicer (PRIME lending library borrow) read. I need to write my personal essay and resume for my grad school applications. Transcripts have been ordered (I swear the Air Force loves to make easy, mundane tasks HELLA complicated via the Internet....). Waiting on my mentor/friend for the recommendation letter. Oh man....it's really happening!!!!

 

Next week I want to get to Welcome to Last Chance (Last Chance #1) by Cathleen Armstrong, If Ever I Would Leave You (Montana Rescue #0.5) by Susan May Warren, and Submerged (Alaskan Courage #1) by Dani Petry. The first and last book are Prime lending library reads and it is my hope I can be done with these books and cancel my Prime membership by the end of the month. As if I don't have enough series to keep track of, now I am starting new ones.

 

Happy Reading!

Reading progress update: I've read 50%.
Aliens Omnibus: Female War and Genocide: Female War, Genocide v. 2 (A dark horse science fiction novel) by Steve Perry (1996-01-02) - Steve Perry

Book 1: Genocide 2 stars

 

The book didn't really contain any aliens until the last 25%. It was boring corporate b.s. The characters were only semi-likeable. And the bad guy was so obvious a middle schooler could have seen it coming.

 

There is also the fact the author couldn't keep straight which alien hive they were breaking into, the black or the red. He constantly switched colors, which made it hard to tell what was happening. "Wait, I thought they nuked the red queen. Why are they fighting her now? She's already dead! They were in the black queen hive a minute ago."

 

Poor writing. Boring story. One-dimensional characters.

You do have aliens in your alien book, right?

 

Hello?

 

Anybody there?

Daniel is like Trump crossed with that sniveling corporate guy from the second Aliens. I want him eaten.

Aliens Omnibus: Female War and Genocide: Female War, Genocide v. 2 (A dark horse science fiction novel) by Steve Perry (1996-01-02) - Steve Perry

This book is missing periods like crazy. For such a massive fandom, and to have been written by such popular scifi authors, you would think their copy-editors would do a better job. But they keep missing punctuation or misspelling the characters' names. The misspellings are not as often, but they are happening a little too much for a book I paid good money for. I wonder if the paperback version is like this.
