Happy Wednesday, fellow reading addicts!

Over the course of the last ten days, I asked friends to help me with my 12 books to read in 12 months challenge. I got all the books I needed (and then some) and I thought I’d share the list with you today:

  1. Born of Water by A.L. Knorr
  2. Dear Writer, Are You in Burn Out? By Becca Syme
  3. Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
  4. The Ash Gardner by J. Ember Hintz
  5. The Darkness That Comes Before by R. Scott Baker
  6. Beauty’s Kingdom by Anne Rice
  7. The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
  8. The Invisible Life of Addie Larue by V.E. Schwab
  9. Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett
  10. Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman
  11. Bloodthirsty by Cassandra Featherstone
  12. The First Binding by R.R. Virdi

I’m not planning to read these in any particular order, but I do know Dear Writer is first on my list. I also have a few others on my list that didn’t make the 12-book graphic, but I’ll share those once they get read.

We’re expecting snow later today and it might just be a decent amount. Hard to say because there is a chance there will be more mixed precipitation than snow. I guess I’ll have to wait and see. Are you expecting snow this week? If so, check out the great deals on the books below! Then you have something to read while staying warm!

Enjoy and happy reading!

Is Idina Moorfield going crazy or has an ancient magic found its source?

Her family says she’s not a true Moorfield and will never be good enough for the family business.

Sometimes what looks like the worst day ever, is the beginning of our best adventure.

Idina takes that first step into a new life and gets the hell away from them to forge her own future.

But her calling is the one thing they are the most against. She joins the military just like Uncle Rick. The other family outcast.

What is everyone in the Moorfield family so afraid of?

  1. Get Smoked Or Go Home
  2. Charlie Foxtrot 101

When life hands you lemons, you can either make lemonade or lob them like hand grenades at your problems.

Join Idina with books 4-6 of the bestselling The Warrior series and find out just how much things change for her and her unit.

Nothing is going as Idina Moorfield planned. It’s what happens when magical powers you don’t know you have manifest when you least expect it.

Idina needs to make new plans, even if those plans are loosely based on her CO telling her to figure things out.

Time to make lemonade.

There’s all sorts of tasks Idina and her unit could be doing. Getting them to help out is another issue. Can she figure out how to get them to help her without asking them to help?

Then there’s the mysterious journal she received. Every time she opens it and reads it, there’s flashing green lights everywhere. What is causing it and is the journal the answer to her questions about her powers?

If she could just find a way to read it… unless it’s not meant for reading…

Another mysterious package makes its way to her. It creates more questions than answers.

Can she figure out what’s going on with her powers and who is watching her?

  1. A FUBAR Kind of Day

The Mage Who Loved Me

Eat. Pray. Sharpen your blade…Kap is going on vacation. 

Six months after burning down ACE headquarters, Kap and Sig are on the run—but they’re not on their own. Dai is with them, and the strength of her arms makes all the difference.

Raph is there, too. He mostly makes a mess. 

With nothing uniting them but a common commitment to taking ACE down, this misfit group of heroes has been doing the work! Armed with pocket change and jerry-rigged talismans, they’ve managed to throw more than a few magical wrenches into the evil organization’s inner workings, all while keeping out of ACE’s crosshairs.

But even a wizard needs to take a break every now and again—or so Dai says. 

The demon gets her wish when a disgruntled Fed with a binder full of questions grabs Kap off the street, throwing the team headfirst into a mission at the world’s most exclusive resort.

The problem? No one who goes to this resort ever returns.

Soon they’re knee deep in dead bodies, all pointing toward a conspiracy that threatens to shake the world to its core.

The Mage Who Loved Me is an urban fantasy spy thriller that’s packed with action, packed with humor, and packed with heart. Harry Dresden meets Mission Impossible, the Sorcerer Spy books will make you laugh, make you think, and above all will keep turning the pages.

Conroyverse: A Sampler

“Put down the buffalo dog and step away from the bar!”

That simple sentence set in motion a universe. And not just any universe, no, the Conroyverse!

The Amazing Conroy, a stage hypnotist working third-rate venues on alien worlds, gets talked into being a courier of an Arconi buffalito — an adorable alien creature that can eat anything and farts oxygen. If he can avoid being executed for smuggling, his world will be forever changed.

Angela Colson — a seemingly ordinary teenager — only appears to be Human, but is actually a mutant variant from a race of teleporting aliens who have hidden in plain sight for millennia. They don’t believe she can keep their secret. If she doesn’t convince them otherwise, they’ll resolve the problem by putting her to death!

Melody Wilder just needs to complete her doctorate and life will be perfect. But the downside of a university on a space station orbiting Neptune is that an assortment of aliens keeps showing up, imposing their own agendas on her, with no concern for her dissertation on sentient, non-Human memory.

The Conroyverse is a sampler containing the shorty story that started the entire fictional universe as well as the first novels from each of the three series that share that common, alien-rich setting. It’s a taste — appropriate given the emphasis on food across the books — of what awaits you in the ongoing adventures and humorous romps of each series.

Hypnosis, Teleportation, and Alien Academia, Oh My!



2018 Dragon Award Finalist for Best Military Science Fiction or Fantasy Novel

Human slavers attack. Despite trying to fight back, there is nothing the young Leefe can do to save his family and friends. But he doesn’t have to. The Imperial Marines arrive in the nick of time, and they hate slavers. Three tri-years later, when the new emperor issues a proclamation to integrate the imperial military with non-human citizens, Leefe is among the first to volunteer.

Integration to resurrect the empire as a force for good is challenged by centuries of prejudice against the “dung races.” Leefe and the other Wyntonans only want to prove their worth and fight for the empire, but their greatest battles are closer to home.

With threats to the empire from both within and without, this grand experiment has the potential to save it . . . or tear it apart.


The Corps has been integrated by imperial decree—but that doesn’t mean everyone accepts the wyntonan Marines. Despite an impressive combat record as a grunt, Corporal Leif Hollow struggles to become an effective NCO and leader of Marines.

When then the trumpets of war sound, however, Marines forget about differences and come together to accomplish the mission. But when the odds are stacked against them, and the empire’s very existence is at stake, will that be enough?



Marine Raider!

Sergeant Leif a’Hope Hollow is the first of his People to earn the coveted title. He never knew how soon he and his fellow Raiders would have to prove themselves on the field of battle.

After the failed coup to oust the emperor, the Novacks do not fade quietly into the background. They continue a low-grade insurgency, but in doing so, they open the door to other players that bring the entire empire to the brink of destruction.

Sergeant a’Hope Hollow must lead a ragtag group of fellow non-humans in an attempt to avert a catastrophe that can wipe out humans forever.

The genocide to destroy every elf, wizard, and sacred being of old is not yet complete. Sviska’s masters work the strings of the world and he has been sent for a task he does not even fully understand yet. When at last he feels he has what he has always wanted, darkness falls upon the world.
