Since today is the last day of January, I thought I’d offer a brief wrap up of how it went.
My main motivation was to provide reviews. Seven authors have benefited from my at time slap-dash reviews. Two authors reached to thank me personally and one offered an ARC of another book for review. I’m humbled. I don’t know if any of my blog readers have been persuaded to read any of these authors, but I sure hope so.
In the process, I have discovered a wonderful, new to me author, Sarah Madison. I’ve also been impressed with the high quality work of several independent (or self-published) authors, including Lara Nance and Christine S. Feldman.
One erotica book triggered too many of my personal hot-button issues and I opted not to finish it. My limited experience with the genre has by and large left me cold, even though I know a number of charming, sane people who write erotica.
I have one book in progress, Joanna Lloyd’s Shadow Beneath the Sea and will include a review later.
Will I do this again? Oh yes. And I will make it a point to leave a review for everything I read that has less than 300 reviews on Goodreads.
