Hey, there avid readers! You know, I understand all the hype about Christmas but come on, it’s Halloween time, celebrate Halloween! I only say this because it seems that people are in a rush to just move on without enjoying what’s going on right now. I love my holidays; I try to celebrate what they were created for. I’m no saint, of course, I call into the commercialism of it all, it’s hard not to, but I try to enjoy every damn day and just go with the flow. Not jump to the next thing before I even start celebrating.
This connects to my reading. I have a very long list of books to read, a goal to read 90 books this year. But I’m not rushing. Some books I enjoy so much I can’t put them down, and then there are others that don’t read quite as fast, books that almost bore me to death. There’s one right here on this list. I also say this as a note to myself because I love to read and there are so many books I want to read. But I just need to go with the flow and read what I can and enjoy the journey I’m on with the books.
So on that note, check out this week’s reading list. Let me know what you think of the books and see if these are books are worthy of your reading list.

“Leah Westfall has a strong, loving family. She has a home she loves and a loyal steed. She has a best friend—who might want to be something more. She also has a secret. Leah can sense gold in the world around her. Veins deep in the earth. Small nuggets in a stream. Even gold dust caught underneath a fingernail. She has kept her family safe and able to buy provisions, even through the harshest winters. But what would someone do to control a girl with that kind of power? A person might murder for it. When everything Lee holds dear is ripped away, she flees west to California—where gold has just been discovered. Perhaps this will be the one place a magical girl can be herself. If she survives the journey.” —Goodreads

“In GATHERING DARKNESS, book three of the New York Times bestselling Falling Kingdoms series, the stakes have never been higher as three teams push forward on a race to find the Kindred, the four elemental crystals possessing ancient, all-powerful magic, first: Prince Magnus has just witnessed torture, death, and miracles during the bloody confrontation that decimated the rebel forces. Now he must choose between family and justice as his father, the cruel King Gaius, sets out to conquer all of Mytica. All Gaius needs now are the Kindred – the four elemental crystals that give godlike powers to their owner. But the King of Blood is not the only one hunting for this ancient, storied magic. The only certainty in the dark times is that whoever finds the magic first will control the fate of Mytica… but fate can be fickle when magic is involved.” —Goodreads
