This Weeks Reads

The Great A'tuin
by Angevere (DeviantArt)

bound by Benedict Jacka
Alex Verus #8 (Goodreads)
**This series took some interesting turns in the last book. Very interested how Verus and friends get themselves out of the mess they are in now with most of their allies not on their side.

The Queens of Innis Lear by Tessa Gratton
**I could not remember if I had tried this book earlier when it first came out but both the cover and description made me pick it up. I've been in the mood for a good epic type fantasy and hoping this fills that need.

This Week's Reads

King of The Forest
by Silver Flight (DeviantArt)

burned by Benedict Jacka
Alex Verus #7 (Goodreads)
**Dresden Files by Jim Butcher has always been one of my favorite series and picked up the book one of this series based on Butcher's cover quote. This has a lot of the same elements while being completely it's own series.

The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
The Heroes of Olympus #5 (Goodreads)
**I'm not sure how but I missed the last book in this series. The problem with this is that I've read all 3 books of the Apollo series and they deal with some of the aftermaths of this series.

This Week's Reads

Peridot's Hand Shaped Spaceship
by ResidentEvilffs (DeviantArt)

Midnight Marked by Chloe Neill
Chicagoland Vampires #12  (Goodreads)
**This series finished last year so I thought it was time finish the last two books. This is one of my favorite UF series. It has a bit of everything besides the vampires.

Legendary by Stephanie Gerber
Caraval #2 (Goodreads)
**I went into Caraval not expecting much and ended up liking more than I thought I would. The sisters are still dealing with the fallout from book 1 and the only way out is to play the game again and find out Legend's real name.

The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan
The Trials of Apollo #3 (Goodreads)
**This is not my favorite series by Riordan but still highly entertaining and I find them a fun read.

This Week's Reads

**We love animated movies and Wreck-It Ralph was one of my son's favorites. I love Disney so I was happy to see all the princesses.

Wizard for Hire by Obert Skye
**I love the artwork on this cover and it's why I first picked it up.  The storyline sounds like a good one. A son trying to find his missing parents but cannot go to the police. In comes the not so savory wizard who may or may not be what he claims.

Suitors and Sabotage by Cindy Anstey
**Again with the covers. This author always has great covers.
Ya, Historical Fiction about an female artist who falls for her suitors brother. Unfortunately, someone is trying to "harm" the brother.

Death Doesn't Bargain by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Deadman's Cross #2 (Goodreads)
**I ended up liking book one more than I thought. This series takes place in the same world as Kenyon's Dark Hunters series (which I love) but much earlier. It taking place earlier is probably why I'm still reading them.
