It seems to have been a B+ weeks this week. With the exception of One Fell Sweep, although I liked all of this week’s books very much they just didn’t have that special “something” that makes the difference between a B+ and an A-. And if I could codify that “something” I could probably sell the secret and make a fortune. Even though I suspect that whatever that “something” is, it’s different for every reader. One Fell Sweep, of course, had that “something” in a big way.
No winners this week. LOTS of winners next week. Both the Best of 2016 Giveaway Hop AND the Jeepers its January Giveaway Hop end on January 31. Plus the two book giveaways that end at the end of the week. Books and gift cards for more books make some of the best presents.
And I did it to myself again. Next week I have four book tours. All the books look very interesting, and I’ll be glad I read them, but being locked in on four days can be confining, especially if one of the books turns out to simply be long. Now that I have a day job, I can’t stay up all night to read. Maybe I should say that I shouldn’t stay up all night to read. There are some books that are too good to put down!
