Today I am starting with 2930 books in my Kindle collection. I’ll look at the next 10 books and decide whether to try and read them soon, save them to read later, or delete them from the collection because they are something I just won’t read.
Irid by Deana Zhollis is 206 pages and is labeled as African American sci fi. It has 7 reviews and an average rating of 3.5 stars. This book follows Tarah. Her race, the Irids are dying off after a war and she has to try and convince those in charge to do something drastic to save their race. The reviews say this book is complicated and I’m not sure I’m up for that now, but I may be later. I’ll hang on to it.
Celebrity Space by Alain Gomez is 16 pages and listed as a sci fi story. It has 15 reviews and an average rating of 3 stars. This short story follows Dan who is working a new job at a spaceport when there is a collision. It sounds fine. Something I might give a try when I have the chance.
When I Woke Up I Knew I was Dead by N. Primak is 14 pages and listed as satire. It has 23 reviews and an average rating of 3 stars. This short story follows Sean who wakes up knowing he is dead, but death has been cured. I’m intrigued. This one I’ll send to my phone to try and read soon.
Ice Cracker II by Lindsay Buroker is 54 pages long and is listed as a fantasy anthology. It has 84 reviews and a 4.5 star rating. This book has 3 short stories inside. The reviews are fantastic for this collection. A blend of fantasy and steampunk that all of her readers seem to love in this collection as well as her novels. It certainly seems worthy of trying at some point.
Goddspeed Inc by Vincent Miskell is 30 pages and is listed as sci fi romance. It has 36 reviews and an average rating of 4 stars. This book is book 0 in a series about Naomi. She works mending spacetime rifts. The reviews are mixed, but all agree it’s fine, but not fantastic. If I were already invested in the world, this prequel might be worth reading, but I’m not interested enough to bother starting here.
A Walk in the Woods by Rebecca M Senese is a 9 page horror short story. It has 40 reviews and an average rating of 3.5 stars. It’s about an old woman who sneaks away to see the wolves from fairy tales. Horror is not for me.
Pole Dancer by Gary Pittenger is 9 pages and is listed as an erotic mystery story. It has 4 reviews and an average rating of 3.5 stars. A man visits a strip club where his sister dances naked. Um. I’ll pass.
My Lady Gisborne by Charlotte Hawkins is 422 pages and is listed as medieval historical romance. It has 37 reviews and an average rating of 4 stars. This is book 2 in a series. It’s not a genre I enjoy. I’ll just delete it.
Refuge by Richard Herley is 258 pages and is listed as a thriller. It has 18 reviews and an average rating of 4 stars. This book follows John who believes he was the only survivor from a plague that struck 12 years before. He finds a body and investigates. There are warnings in the description for violence, sexual activity and satanic worship. I love post apocolyptic stories but am worried about those warnings. I think I’ll hold on to it for now in case I ever heal enough to read more frightening things without getting intense nightmares.
The Sorrow King by Anderson Prunty is 297 pages and is listed as a horror book. It has 46 reviews and an average rating of 4 stars. The cover alone is terrifying. Horror is not my thing. I’ll have to pass on this one for my mental health even though the plot sounds like something I would have enjoyed once upon a time.
That was 10 more books. Did you find any new ones here you just have to read?
