Musing Mondays: Aug. 19, 2013 Edition

Here's today's Musing Monday's as posted by Should Be Reading's blog 
Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying with it.
As I haven't done one of these since the last week in June, I figure it's okay to go with point 3 again.

I am currently reading through the Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher.

This series was recommended to be by a number of my friends - all of whom also suggested I read the Anita Blake books which I haven't had a chance to read yet.

The series are written as a first-person narrative by Harry Blackstone Coppersfield Dresden, a wizard who is also a private investigator in Chicago.  His main contract is with the local police department Special Investigations unit.  Like most paranormal fiction I've read recently, people have just learned that magic and mystical creatures exist in their world and are coping with that revelation.  Dresden is one of the few wizards who openly practices his craft and is available for hire.

So far I've read the first two books in the series:

  • Storm Front
  • Fool Moon
I'm now reading Grave Peril.  I like the books so far, but I already feel that the author is too repetitive both within the individual books and within the series.  There's only so many times I need the same description of how he decorates his apartment or the style of clothes he wears or how and why the apartment has no electricity etc.

Beyond that little pet peeve, I'm enjoying the books thus far.

The Twisted World Verse One: The Dusk Harbringer is free for download through Monday

The husband and wife team of Oliver Campbell and Danika Potts are at it again, this time releasing the first book in a dark fantasy trilogy this weekend.

Available at the moment only through Amazon (though you can convert it for other devices), The Twisted World Verse One: The Dusk Harbringer is available free of charge till 11:59 p.m. Monday, Aug. 18.

While I have been given a review copy to read, I have not had a chance to read it yet.  With that being said, if you enjoyed Rabbit in the Road, I strongly believe you will enjoy this book just as much, if not more so.  I say this because I have been reading the excerpts they have been posting to Facebook this past week.

Speaking of which, after you download their book here, you should follow their pages on Facebook too:

And after you read the book, be sure to leave feedback on Amazon and Goodreads.  Help support indie authors.
