Here at Phantom Owl we support indie authors. We've asked book bloggers to share their indie book reviews with us, and at the beginning of every month, we're going to share with all of you the wonderful books they've suggested. We hope to not only bring attention to indie books, but also to promote the bloggers that are taking the time to read and review them.
The list includes books of all genres.
June was a bit of a slow month. We want to thank The Good, The Bad and The Bizarre for their submissions, and to let book reviewers everywhere know that we'd love to know what indies you've read in July. To find out how to link up to your indie book reviews click HERE.
Books are arranged by rating.
Shadowcursed by Gelo Fleisher
The Good, The Bad, and The Bizarre Rating: Good
Goodreads Rating: 4.46 Stars
"The characters are easy enough to understand and sympathize with, and
have enough complexity to keep them interesting, but enough simplicity
that they don’t trouble the reader with questions afterwards. All in
all, a good show and worth the read." - The Good, The Bad, and The Bizarre
The Good, The Bad, and The Bizarre Rating: Bizarre
Goodreads Rating: 4.46
"The novel was sometimes exceptionally thick with the wacky and the
strange—and, though we could share the heroine’s exhaustion at the end
of each day (no wonder for that, given that she’s essentially battled
the bizarre for her life all day long), we were always eager to turn the
page and almost always surprised at what we encountered there." - The Good, The Bad, and The Bizarre
The Good, The Bad, and The Bizarre Rating: Bad
Goodreads Rating: 3.33
"we were ultimately disappointed because this story was only a few steps
away from greatness, and with all its problems it just could not cross
the finish line." - The Good, The Bad, and The Bizarre
