I’ve been reading my ass off lately and it’s awesome. Wouldn’t it be great if reading caused you to loose weight? Like, you could actually read your ass off?
The last few books I’ve read have been fiction thriller/crime dramas. It’s not a huge change for me but it’s a little step into reading something other than true crime. I won’t lie, the main reason I selected the books was price. I mainly use my Kindle for reading now since it’s beyond easy to get new books. Hell, one book (Daddy’s Home (A Holly Jennings Thriller)) was only .99! How can you pass that up? Especially when the write up is pretty decent. I mean, if it sucks you only wasted a dollar. The other two books I’ve recently finished are Mommy, May I? by A.K. Alexander and Abducted (Lizzy Gardner Series #1) by T.R. Ragan.
They were all easy reads and pretty short books. “Mommy, May I?” actually had a twist that I didn’t see coming and I normally pick them up. I’ve read and watched way too many crime shows and books that in most cases, I know what’s going to happen before it happens. In this case though, I actually gasped a little bit! “Abducted” was decent as well. I figured out some of it along the way though. I think that book was only $2.99. I probably wouldn’t have paid more than that for it but if you have a few bucks and you’re looking for a nice little thriller, check it out. “Daddy’s Home” was pretty weird, storyline wise. Here’s the write ups that way you can get a better idea about them:
A serial killer of the worst kind is on the loose. The killer the police have dubbed “The Family Man,” appears to be seeking out his “perfect family,” preying upon single mothers and their children. He watches them…He takes them…and he plays out his role as the “the perfect father.” Crime Scene Investigator Holly Jennings of the San Diego Police Department is determined to track him down and see that justice is served. With Holly being a single mother herself, this man’s crimes are deeply personal to her, and turn more so when a friend and her daughter become the latest victims of “The Family Man.”
“Mommy, May I?:”
A killer raised amidst evil and seeking evil with revenge in mind is targeting Helena. Leaving a trail of blood in his wake this sadist plans his return into Helena’s life. When the madman abducts Frankie it’s only a matter of time before Helena knows she will never see her daughter again. Seeking help from the journalist who almost destroyed her, an FBI agent with suspicions toward her, as well as Helena’s ex-lover who is also Frankie’s father, Helena must find the strength to fight past addictions and see her daughter back home again–alive.
Elizabeth Gardner (Lizzy) is seventeen-years old when she tells her parents she’s going out with her girlfriends. Instead, she meets up with Jared Shayne, her boyfriend of two years. As she walks home beneath an inky black sky, her perfect night becomes her worst nightmare.
Fourteen years later, Lizzy is a licensed PI known as the “one who got away.” When she’s not searching for runaway teenagers, working on insurance scams, or talking to her therapist, she’s at the local high school teaching young girls to defend themselves. But her world is turned upside down for the second time after she receives a call from Jared Shayne. He’s an FBI special agent now and he needs her help. Lizzy has no plans to get involved. Not until Jared tells her the kidnapper left her a personalized note.
Like I said, if you’re looking for an easy read and you enjoy thriller/crime books, I’d give these a go.
