This Week's Reads

Deadly Sting by Jennifer Estep
Elemental Assassin #8 (Goodreads)
**I can't seem to catch up on this series. I love the side characters just as much as the main characters.

Bone Crossed by Patricia Briggs
Mercy Thompson #4 (Goodreads)
**I started rereading this series this month. I have plenty of new books to read but something made me want to read the old Mercy books.

Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein
Becoming Jinn #1 (Goodreads)
**I saw book 2 on the new releases shelf at the library and it caught my eye. Thought I should start with this one.

Some Thursday Randomness

Took our son to see Finding Dory a couple of weeks ago and of all the previews this one was the one I most wanted to see.

I probably won't see Suicide Squad until it comes out on DVD but still looking forward to it. So far Harley Quinn is my favorite character.

Random Stuff
Artist Martin Vargic creates different maps, which can be seen on his website or in his book Vargic's Miscellany of Curious Maps: Mapping the Modern World I really like the look of his Map of Literature.

Here are some interesting bookshelves just because...
Coffin Bookshelf
Viking Ship
Saw these first on Colossal (Site). Artist  Alfred Basha (Facebook) mixes trees and animals to make some beautiful images.
