And the next thing I’m reading is…
Having now read one indie book that I hated and one that I really liked, I thought that it was high time that I started reading a third. This time, I’ve decided to try something a little different: Minutes before Sunset, by Shannon A Thompson
Going into this one, I really had no idea what to expect. On one hand, the excerpt is marvelous and the author’s blog is updated both frequently and with consistent high quality. On the other hand, this book is a paranormal romance – a genre I usually avoid – with a name strongly reminiscent of That Series. I was apprehensive yet hopeful when I started reading.
One tenth of the way through, things are looking good. So far, there’s been a lot of paranormal and not a lot of romance, though I’m guessing that the romantic element will become larger as the book progresses. The writing is strong and the worldbuilding has already drawn me in quite spectacularly. As long as the romance component doesn’t end up eclipsing everything else, I can see myself really getting into this.
