message 24: by Jonquil (new)

Jonquil For my recent beach vacation I downloaded books to my kindle from my library's OverDrive e-book pages--the only thing I see on my selected screen format is book covers. Boy, was I surprised by some of the actual content!!

Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike 5/15 A surprise: This reminded me of the Ally Carter books. My first shock was the protagonist is a boy, not the girl I was expecting. And the boy's challenge made me feel more stressed than when Carter's thieves risk imprisonment!

Wind Warrior (World Aflame, #1) by Jon Messenger 5/9 No surprise: This Kindle freebie looked intriguing. It was similar to other books I'd read about Elementals and teens coming into their powers but it was unique enough to stand on its own.

Ordinary Magic by Caitlen Rubino-Bradway 5/8 No surprise: Seemed magical and youthful, I happily got lost in the this world.

Croak (Croak, #1) by Gina Damico 5/15 No surprise: She looked like she never missed a chance to sass and that was basically true. I was surprised there was a mystery, but the culprit was no surprise.

Strange Neighbors (Strange Neighbors, #1) by Ashlyn Chase 5/16 Surprise: Expected a lighthearted, g-rated paranormal mystery. By the end of the book I was annoyed by every character.

Murder Packs a Suitcase (Murder Packs a Suitcase, #1) by Cynthia Baxter 5/11 No surprise: it looked like a beach read and it was.

Curl Up Die A 1950s Vintage Murder Mystery by Gloria Hander Lyons 5/15 Surprise: Expected a fun cozy, some gossip and a small town mystery--by the end I didn't care about any of it.

Dark Waters (Sheriff Milt Kovak, #12) by Susan Rogers Cooper 5/8 Surprise: I expected beaches and tropical paradise (with a murder.) It was about a cruise ship and my mental images were all gray and crowded and claustrophobic (with a murder.)
