Sunday Post #147

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news ~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share new about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Another week to the dust. Crazy how fast this year is flying by in the last few months! Before I know it, it'll be Christmas and then 2017.

I don't know what to say about the week. What did I do? I have no idea. The hours are flying by and I can't keep up!

I've signed up to do a few blog hops in the next few months. I'm excited about this as I have a few audiobooks to share! :D Exciting!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Fit Booker:

Goal:  Workout in any form of exercise (or on Wii Fit) 2x's a week. (to feel better and hope to drop a few pants sizes)

How did I do last week... I did get some exercising in this week. I only been getting 2 days a week in with all that's going on. They are days working on the weight equipment at the gym.

Reviews:
Hidden Deception by Colleen Helme

"I just love Shelby. She's a light personality that's fun to listen to. She makes me smile with the goofy things she does or says to lighten the moment. I am also drooling over Ramos, Uncle Joey's guard, and Chris, Shelby's husband. Oh man."


Glistens by Chess Desalls

"It feels like a lovely little story for young adults, in middle school and up, to read/listen to."




"There is a moral to the story, it's tied to Tarah struggling with who she is. "

For Review Consideration:
Of Flame and Light by Cecy Robson
PICK UP AT AMAZON
Goodreads Synopsis:
Taran Wird holds the unique ability to conjure fire and lightning. She is mated to Gemini, Second in Command to the Squaw Valley Pack of the Lake Tahoe Region, and the sole werewolf to possess the ability to split into two wolves. And although they are mates, Taran's insecurities have driven them apart.  

Devastated by an injury that left her with a zombie-like limb, Taran struggles to regain command over her magic. But when her arm and her power turn against her, lashing out on those she most loves, she knows she can no longer carry this burden alone. Not that she likes the alternative. 

The only way to regain control of her magic is to align and learn from the local coven of witches―the very ones who sought to banish her when she and her three unique sisters first moved to the mystical region. But although Taran is trying, the teachings don't come easy, and the tasks leave her weak and emotionally shattered. 

Yet Taran must learn and learn fast. Time is running out. The fire she once mastered so easily has become her greatest adversary and is now slowly burning her alive . . .

Audio Books Requested for Review:
Destroyer of Worlds by JF Penn
PICK UP AT AMAZON
Goodreads Synopsis:
An ancient weapon threatens the heart of India.

From New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, J.F.Penn.

A bomb explodes in the center of London and a fragment of an ancient Hindu sculpture is stolen from the ARKANE Headquarters by a secret organization bent on mass murder. If the sculpture is put together again, it will reveal the key to the Brahmastra, a weapon with the power of a nuclear explosion.

As those they love are threatened, ARKANE agents Morgan Sierra and Jake Timber must search for the pieces of the relic before it can be activated at the Kumbh Mela, the greatest pilgrimage on earth.

In a fast-paced adventure from the slums of Mumbai to the temples of Kolkata, the Taj Mahal in Agra to the killing fields of Rwanda, Morgan and Jake must find the pieces of the sculpture before it’s too late.

>>> Destroyer of Worlds is Book 8 in the ARKANE action adventure thriller series, but can be read as a stand-alone story.

Veil of Shadows by Terry Mixon
PICK UP AT AMAZON
Goodreads Synopsis:
It's always darkest before the dawn! 

In Empire of Bones, Commander Jared Mertz and Princess Kelsey scored a stunning victory over the savage Pale Ones. Yet they paid a terrible price for it, one that left their ship crippled and changed the Princess forever. 

As Kelsey struggles to master the combat enhancements the Pale Ones forcibly implanted inside her and Jared works feverishly to resurrect an ancient battlecruiser, they discover the Pale Ones aren’t as defeated as they seemed. 

Jared and Kelsey race to unravel the secrets behind the ancient rebellion that destroyed galactic civilization and thwart unseen foes determined to take their new ship and their lives. If they fail, an entire planet dies.

Edge of End by H.G.Suren
PICK UP AT AMAZON
Goodreads Synopsis:
Jonathan wakes up in a desert, his past wiped from his mind. A search of his clothes for clues to his identity yields no results. Who is he? Who brought him here? And why? 

He has only two choices to move forward: certain death in an endless desert or a little town he sees in the distance. 

Empty streets, dilapidated houses, and dusty cars suggest an abandoned town. There's no one to ask for help, nowhere to go. Jonathan wanders the town in search of any sign of life as he tries to regain his lost memory. Disturbing visions haunt him, and apparitions call to him, causing him to doubt his sanity. Soon, Jonathan comes to the realization that absolute evil dwells in the town, always seeking fresh souls. The seemingly dead town is only outwardly empty. 

Grey skies, no sun, no days, and no nights mean no sense of time. With only one entrance and one exit, the path to escape is filled with terrifying creatures and phenomena Jonathan has never envisioned, even in his worst nightmares. 

He meets a beautiful woman named Elizabeth, who seems to be normal and friendly, but is she? Jonathan has to work his way through the horrendous town, figure out his past, and find his future if he has one.
