Hey, there avid readers! I hope everyone is doing great. I have been back at work for a full week and boy am I exhausted. Re-opening a theater, especially under COVID-19 is really hard work. So I have not been reading as much as I would hope, unfortunately. I’m working nights mostly thankfully so I should be able to squeeze some reading in during the day while I spend time with my son and husband.
So, on that note, check out my latest reading list, a sneak peek of reviews to come and if you have read any of these titles let me know what you thought of them. Happy reading!

Dexter meets This Savage Song in this dark fantasy about a girl who sells magical body parts on the black market — until she’s betrayed.
Nita doesn’t murder supernatural beings and sell their body parts on the internet—her mother does that. Nita just dissects the bodies after they’ve been “acquired.” Until her mom brings home a live specimen and Nita decides she wants out; dissecting a scared teenage boy is a step too far. But when she decides to save her mother’s victim, she ends up sold in his place—because Nita herself isn’t exactly “human.” She has the ability to alter her biology, a talent that is priceless on the black market. Now on the other side of the bars, if she wants to escape, Nita must ask herself if she’s willing to become the worst kind of monster.

Alessa awoke the morning of the festival for Hades expecting nothing more than a night at the bonfires with her charming best friend. She never expected the rest…
Not meeting the man she would end up promised to in marriage.
Not the Spartan warrior or the desperate fight to save a lost princess.
And certainly not the monsters who swooped down in the dark.
When Alessa’s ability to communicate with them results in her taking the blame for the bloodshed, she’ll have to fight for her life. But she never imagined her future would depend on the trust of a stranger – the stranger she’s set to marry – or the strength of a long unspoken love.
Before the night is over, more than just the bonfires might burn…

Ralph Gibsen isn’t your typical spy. In fact, he may not be a spy at all. He’s lumpy, blundering and abysmal at chatting up the fairer sex. Yet, he is attracting a significant amount of attention from the intelligence community. After all, as a 30-year Silicon Valley mainstay, he can phish your passwords, bust firewalls, and has developed software used by millions to circumvent government censorship.
And now, he thinks he has stumbled upon a cabal who is pushing to misuse his own technology for world domination. Ralph helps create an educational Tool that maps a learner’s neurological processes and pinpoints the exact moment a student learns. But the Tool can also manipulate people’s beliefs.
At least, that what several influential people think.
Soon, Ralph finds himself the target of increasingly complex attacks on his businesses, reputation, freedom, and life. Ralph enlists an eclectic group of ‘frenemies’ to thwart this nefarious plot. McKenna may or may not still work for the CIA. Beautiful Eva may work for the Chinese government, who wants the Tool for themselves. Even Ralph’s lovely wife Jen could be involved… Ralph simply isn’t equipped to figure it out. And the world is closing in.
