Free Kindle books have a LOT to answer for! :-)

archangelbeth: A snake in profile, with its mouth open as if laughing. It has three eyes, a halo, and green wingfeathers showing. (Seraph Snicker)

Is that part of the reason! O:D

I'm just trying to match 50 Shades with Feed and CVA...

Well, part of it anyway. 50 shades was actually an ebook from our local library's new ebook program. I wasn't willing to pay for it!

The Mira Grant books were entirely my friend's fault. I found FEED abandoned on my doorstep and could hardly leave the poor thing out in the cold!

The two books about slavery were from the free Kindle list that I'm using (Hundred Zeroes).

archangelbeth: An anthropomorphic feline face, with feathered wing ears, and glasses, in shades of gray. (Default)

Thank goodness for libraries, where one can peer at books that one does not wish to pay for! O:D

And of course you couldn't leave Feed out there! You never know what it might infect...

I was highly disappointed in 50 Shades of Grey - poorly written and even more poorly edited. And the sex was not particularly all that either.

Feed is definately the best of the Newsflesh trilogy tho I liked how she finished it off in Blackout.

Snuff was EXCELLENT and led me to do a giant reread of much of the Discworld books by character, ie all the Sam Vimes books, all the Witches books etc

CVA is lovely and a great windup to the series.

I havent read the others but heard good things about Cuttlefish.

May I recommend The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern?

I've added it to the list! :-)

I completely agree on the others, especially Snuff - a re-read of all the Discworld books is now on my agenda (probably over Christmas).

LOL How are you after the attempt on 50 Shades?? Brain burned out? :P

Yeah, I don't really get why it's made her so much money. Plus the guy is irritating. Although not quite as bad as Edward Cullen.
