This Week's Reads

Water on Mars
by Cryptid-Creations (DeviantArt)
**Needed some cute this week and Cryptid-Creations art always does the trick!

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
Stalking Jack the Ripper #1 (Goodreads)
**Accidently grabbed the 2nd in this series a couple weeks ago. I've been wanting to read these since I first saw this cover.

Sandwiches: More than you've ever wanted to know about Making and Eating by Alison Deering
**Weird info and recipes; two things that I enjoy. My family is good at trying new recipes but we've never tried it with sandwiches. I like the layout and illustrations of this one.

Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend
NeverMoor #1 (Goodreads)
**This sounded really interesting and after reading a thick epic fantasy I needed something lighter.

This Week's Reads

by Jasmine Becket-Griffith (DeviantArt)

Secondborn by Amy A Bartol
**I was not familiar with this book when I was it on our libraries shelf. This was another cover grab. I really like the colors and the simpleness of the pic. Add in Dystopia, which I haven't read much of this year, and I'm looking forward to this one.

Rebel Seoul by Axie Oh
**Another dystopia here. I'm not sure about this one but I grabbed it as a just in case. It's a kind of military dystopia, which anything military is hit or miss for me.
