Good Reads

As many of you know, from time to time I like to post books I've read. They're not reviews per se, but rather throwing out some good reads you might be interested in. I have to admit I've been a bit naughty and have been reading instead of writing, but I really needed the downtime. And for those that enjoy getting good deals on Kindle books, check out bookbub.com. Its a free service and everyday I get an email announcing great book deals (based on my reading preferences) from both traditional and indie authors.

So what have I read recently?

An Innocent Client by Scott Pratt

It'd been awhile since I'd read a good lawyer/courtroom drama and I am so glad I picked this one up! I really enjoyed Scott Pratt's writing style and if you're a fan of John Grisham, you might just want to read it! So glad I "discovered" Pratt's series now rather than sooner (there's already four in the series and I don't have to wait). 

The Girl Who Would Be King by Kelly Thompson

OMG! This was such a surprise read! I can't believe I stumbled upon it. If you're a fan of super heroes, kiss ass heroines, a villain you can (almost) love, this book is for you! Great storytelling, great, characters, just overall awesome sauce!! 

Blood Calling by Joshua Grover-David Patterson

I never grow tired of vampire books and I totally loved this new series by Patterson. It's a fresh new take on vamps and I totally enjoyed it. I even picked up book two (Misfits) in the series. Please (if you're reading this JGDP) put out book three already!! Blood Calling is currently FREE on Amazon. 

Gone by Christine Kersey

If you've read my books, you know I love a good parallel universe story. Totally loved the premise: an alternate reality where the government controls your weight. I know right? Half-way through reading, I got the munchies and was so thankful we're allowed to eat all the fat we want! Can't wait for book two!! Gone is currently FREE on Amazon

The Afterlife Series by Willow Rose

I haven't read many books about sprits or angels, so I don't know if I'm a good judge of this genre, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Afterlife Series. I was totally engrossed with the story and it took me two days to read all four books in the series (I purchased the fourth book separately). 

Perception by Lee Strauss

I have to admit, it took me days to get past the first chapter, but once I did, I couldn't put this book down. It had an interesting concept (genetically altered persons or GAPs) and it's a great read if you like YA sci-fi. 


  1. I LOVE the cover of "The Girl Who Would be King"! So cool!

    1. It was a great book too! I was totally hooked :)

  2. Good morning busy lady! Nice to see you had time to indulge in some reading, and I have to say, I am JEALOUS!!

    Hope you and the hubby and the furry kids are all doing well, and kudo's to you both on the Fall into Books event! That sounds like a really cool event - I won't be out there this year for it, you'll have to Blog Extensively about it.

    Take care, and enjoy your weekend! Nice to see what you've been up to :-)

    1. When are you coming to visit!! It's been since forever that you promised! How's the new house?
