Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

With all my Bingo card books read and just waiting around for calls, I thought I would launch into reading my backlog of Netgalley books and finish off the anthology I've had on my currently reading shelf for months now. There's only a couple of stories left in the anthology so might as well finish.

 

I've started reading three of the Netgalley books and all are at least reasonably good so far. The other two look interesting but I'm going to get further in the ones I've started before I start new reads. Probably just a few days delay so that I'm not just getting a handle of 5 stories at once.

 

Once I've got on top of those, I still have 5 pages of Horror books in my Bingo folder because I had back-ups picked out for the categories where I was ferreting out possibilities from my free books slush pile. I've been threatening to clear the slush for ages so I think I'll start with those.

 

As soon as I start finishing off Netgalley reads, I'll also start alternating with my A-list so that I've always got one of those going. Then there is the Samples folder. I had accrued 12 new samples at the beginning of September. A lot of interesting books have come down my feed during Bingo and I've just been ordering samples freely to look at later. I now have 115 waiting. Um, yeah. I'll probably bounce between clearing those and the free books slush.

 

At any rate, I have no lack of books to read while the game finishes off. Wheeee!
