April 23: Do you like getting unsolicited books in the mail?

I would LOVE it! Ok so I guess that if you get many then sure it would feel like you had to read them all. But still, I get so few, and that is still books that the pubs would have sent me anyway. I would love getting a surprise book that would make me go all whaat? :D

Let's do a review today too!

Paperback, 508 pages
Published August 7th 2018 by Orbit
Series: The Wounded Kingdom #3
Fantasy
Own

My Thoughts
It took me 12 days to finish this one...12 days!!!! I confess to doing a lot of skimming the last 150 pages cos else I would still be here after 2 weeks.

Something was just not there. I enjoyed the two previous ones, but this one, nah, it felt slow, it dragged, it was a chore and I no longer felt the world.

I must say, it made me feel that I am done with this author if hershe makes me feel like this for this last book.

It had good parts, but most were ok, or just boring. Soulless.

And srsly, EVERYONE else loved it, EVERYONE

Arghhh what is wrong with me?! 


Blurb
Many years of peace have passed in Maniyadoc, years of relative calm for the assassin Girton Club-Foot. Even the Forgetting Plague, which ravaged the rest of the kingdoms, seemed to pass them by. But now Rufra ap Vthyr eyes the vacant High-King's throne and will take his court to the capital, a rat's nest of intrigue and murder, where every enemy he has ever made will gather and the endgame of twenty years of politics and murder will be played out in his bid to become the King of all Kings.


Friends become enemies, enemies become friends and the god of death, Xus the Unseen, stands closer than ever - casting his shadow over everything most dear to Girton.

  5. I get about 6-7 per year and it's nice but I wish I could tell the what I would like instead. Because I'll get things that I'll never read and it's wasted on me.

  8. I don't mind the unsoliciteds, either. If I don't think I'll like it, I can put it in the library donation.

    Ugh, yeah, it always feels weird when a book in a series that's going well is a let down. Maybe its mood and will do better later? Or, maybe it was just that book in the series that's a meh one. LOL

  9. I do enjoy unsolicited books. It is always great to get surprise book.

    I hate it when a book takes to long. Not a good sign at all.

  12. I've had books like that where everyone loved it and I didn't care for it. Harry Potter being the biggest one. I've tried reading and watching the movies and just couldn't get into them. I might try the audios one day, but I have more books that I want to try first.
