I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

The Shattered Door (Morrison Investigations, #1) by Lisa Bouchard

The Shattered Door - Lisa Bouchard

The author gave me a discount code for a free copy of this book from Smashwords. This has not impacted on my ability to review it both critically and honestly.

2/3 - Finally getting started on this book, I don't know how long the poor author has been waiting for my review but it must have been some months. After only 4 chapters I already know I'm going to enjoy it and I'm glad it's finally at the top of my Kindle 'to read' pile. The idea of telepathic abilities taking over from race as the reason for hate crimes is an interesting but not altogether unique one (see The X-Men etc), but I've always been a sucker for a story with characters who have supernatural powers. To be continued...

11/3 - I just finished a book that featured a lot of racism which left me feeling impotent and frustrated that I can't change people's minds and attitudes when it comes to anyone who is different from themselves. Now we've got a new, as yet unnamed, -ism that revolves around segregating and, eventually, eliminating the undesirable element currently known as telepaths. More frustration abounds!! Other than that this is probably the best Kindle book I've read; it's got a great plot, characters you care about and others that you hate and want to see die, and a complete lack of editing errors (a first for me when it comes to Kindle books). To be continued...

23/3 - This is a great little crime thriller/sci-fi with telepaths book and now that I'm nearing the end it's starting to feel a little short. There's so much more that Olivia and Darcy could do, could experience, I'm praying that this is just the start of a series of telepath related books by Lisa Bouchard. If this did become a series it's one I would definitely buy. To be continued...

27/3 - A really great book. I want to read more about Olivia and Darcy, and Fraser and Uncle Joe and Reggie, and The Twenty and the struggle for equal rights for telepaths
