This Week's Reads

Awakening by  Marjorie M. Liu , artist: Sana Takeda
Monstress #1 (Goodreads)
**I've seen this one around and so when I was in the mood for a graphic novel I went with this one.

Gilded Cage by Vic James
Dark Gifts #1 (Goodreads)
**I might have mentioned this one before when I got it from netgalley but I'm finally reading since the release date is getting closer.
I was completely pulled in just from the prologue. Hope the rest is just as good.

This Week's Reads

**I'm a little behind this week. With the holiday weekend and then getting really sick I've lost track of the days. Last month of 2016, hope it's a good one! 😸

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
Reckoners #1 (Goodreads)
**Picked this up based on the cover and author. The concept also sounded interesting. Plus, reviews from my Goodreads friend list all seem positive, so giving a try.

Blood Red Kiss by Kresley Cole, Larissa Ione, Gena Showalter
The Warlord Wants Forever by Kresley Cole
Forsaken by Night by Larissa Ione
Dark Swan by Gena Showalter
**I was in the mood for short stories. I've read and liked all three authors but have not read any of the series that these shorts come from so will also be a good introduction to them.

This Week's Reads

A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
Charlotte Holmes #1 (Goodreads)
**The cover grabbed my attention, something about the colors works for me even better than the actual picture.
I've been enjoying mysteries of late and this is set in the Holmes world without actually being a Sherlock book.

Breath of Earth by Beth Cato
Breath of Earth #1 (Goodreads)
**Alt History, magic, and steampunk sounds like something that I should like. Steampunk has always been a hit or miss genre for me but I'm hoping with everything else that is part of this book I will still enjoy it.
