2018 books: Boundary Crossed, The Gemini Effect

Continuing the trend of 'oldest books on my Kindle'... Both of these books had to have been on my Kindle for three or more years. In the case of the first one, I'd NEVER EVER have picked that book today. There's a look all paranormal books have, and that cover fits it to a T. ("You can't tell a book by the cover" is SUCH a lie... at least when it comes to books.)

Boundary Crossed by Melissa F. Olson
Traditional or self-published: Self-published
Rating: Disliked (Hated-Disliked-Okay-Liked-Loved)

For a book that was completely not to my tastes, this wasn't bad, at least writing-wise. A woman encounters otherworldly creatures (vampires, werewolves, fairies) in our otherwise normal world. As soon as I realized it was paranormal, I stopped reading, since I have no interest in that genre. Got to the 3% point.

This was one of those "One free book per month for Amazon Prime members" deal. Used to be, since they were free, I always took the book even if it wasn't a good match for my tastes. However, with 300 unread books on my Kindle, I would never do that today.

Anyway, this was horror, which I have no interest in seeing or reading. The plot involved some kind of biological weapon left from the cold war escaping and turning everything it touches into monsters. Stopped reading at 4%.

Partial book credits:
Point reached in these books: 3 + 4 = 7%
Previous abandoned book total: 1,334%
New total: 1,341% (13 books!)

Currently reading: The Mammoth Book of Mind-Blowing SF, the current oldest book on my Kindle.
