This Week's Reads

*I'm so ready for winter to be over with. We've had way too cold temps which is causing the roads to stay snow covered.

Year One by Nora Roberts
Chronicles of The One (Goodreads)
**I've been waiting for this one to show at the library and it was finally there this week. I tend to like Roberts' fantasies even better than her contemp. romances.

Heart on Fire by Amanda Bouchet
Kingmaker Chronicles #3 (Goodreads)
**This is the final book in this series so I was thrilled when I saw it on my Hoopla app on my kindle.
That's said, just looking at the star reviews, they seem to be all over the place and many not favorable. I hate when the final book doesn't live up the rest of the series.

Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu
DC Icons #2 (Goodreads)
** I really liked the Wonder Woman book by Bardugo and I'm really looking forward to Maas' Catwoman that comes out later this year so I decided to give this one a shot until then.

This Week's Reads

Together We Will Live Forever
by Alice X. Zhang (DeviantArt)

Come Sundown by Nora Roberts
**Not sure about this one. Roberts is one of my favorite authors but I'm always leary about things that sound like they may be western. It sounds like a good story so I'll at least give it a try.

The Adventurers Guild by  Zack Loran Clark, Nick Eliopulos
The Adventurers Guild #1 (Goodreads)
**I have not really been able to settle into any sort of reading rhythm so far this year so looking for different things.  This sounded like a good premise for a fun middle grade read.
