As a reader, I have a terrible tendency to search for the perfect book, which often ends in tears, suffering… and no books. I’ve since learned if I randomly put books on my kindle, I’ll read them. The end of the year always causes me problems because I love buying presents for people. I end up buying too much stuff for others. You know how it goes.
My gift to myself this year was a free book buying binge. These books are going to be on my to-be-read shelf, but I thought I’d share with you the sort of books I will be reading. If you want to play along, here are the rules.
Go to amazon. Type in a keyword, sort the books by low to high, and click ‘4* average or higher on the left hand side criteria window of the site. The idea is to get some good books–or at least books others have reviewed as good books.
Buy everything that’s free. Do this for several keywords. I did this for three: prince romance (go ahead and judge me, I wanted some romance, and I like princes), murder mystery, and paranormal mystery.
Here is a list of the books I have downloaded. Most of these were blind downloads, although I did peek at a few of the descriptions. I will be reviewing these as I read them as a Roulette Review. (A totally blind reading; all I know about the book before reading will be the cover and the title. This should be interesting.) I’ll link to the reviews (on goodreads) as I post them.
These books will be part of my Reading 2016 Book Challenge.
