This week’s reads are all in eBook format, so that’s why there’s a created image up top instead of a photograph. With Hermine bearing down and drowning us in rain, I just didn’t feel like going out to the library to get actual books. Charged up the eReader in case of a power outage and settled in for some nice reading. Books are great for taking your mind off the rain and howling winds outside!
Anyway, don’t forget that tonight is the release party for Avenging Fate over on Facebook! It’s from 7 – 9 pm Eastern time. Everyone is welcome to attend and there will be giveaways and fun. Sandy Goldsworthy will also be there promoting her newest release, so that’s even more reason to hop in for a visit. You don’t have to stay the whole time and you don’t have to be there at the very beginning, either. Just drop in and have fun whenever you can. I’d love to see you there!
On to the reading list…
- Dark Matter, by Blake Crouch. This is a thriller/fantasy that bends physics (and your mind) to dump the protagonist in an alternate universe where his life has unfolded entirely differently from the life he knew. He has to figure out what’s real and what matters in an effort to get back to his “other” life, all while battling the people who don’t want him to succeed.
- You Will Know Me, by Megan Abbot. This is a family saga/thriller that examines what happens when a family puts the gymnastic success of their daughter above everything else, including sense. After a violent death, though, everything starts to unravel and the characters must confront uncomfortable truths about their lives and their daughter.
- Grit, by Angela Duckworth. This one is a non-fiction look at what makes people successful. It isn’t always talent or effort, but that sticky force called grit that makes you stick with things long past the point when others have given up. I’m always interested in examinations of achievement and success, so this one was a must read. It was also recommended on Kristen Lamb’s blog (one of my favorite writing blogs).
