The TBR pile is just … useless.


I have a few books I don’t want to start where the previous books in series have absolutely wow’ed me. But I keep putting off starting because then they will be over. There’s a point in this pandemic where I think I might need them.


In the meantime, I did wolf through Smoke Bitten by Patricia Briggs. 


Then I tried a few lighter fare, Kindle Unlimited freebies and assorted friend recommendations that I couldn’t finish. Some were awful and some I think I just wasn’t in the mood.


One of my huge roadblocks is that I really miss FictFact.com. That’s where I really kept track of the TBR. Could see series at a glance. Had a new release calendar to alert me when new in my series came out.


Another friend just finishing a series asked for recommendations for new series; that made me mentally go through some I remembered.


Somehow I missed two new releases in Abby Cooper Psychic Eye. Probably because not my usual fair as the paranormal or psychic elements don’t play that huge a part. More chick lit and cozy mystery.


I think the two new to me Abby books might suit. Abby gives a shit about people, always tries to help. Has actual relationships with more than the lust interest. Often “help” looks more like something Lucy Ricardo and Ethel Mertz would do — but that’s part of the fun.
