What I Recently Finished Reading:

Book Cover
A promise to stay together.
An unbreakable bond.
A fierce will to survive.


From international bestselling author Heather Morris comes the breathtaking conclusion to The Tattooist of Auschwitz trilogy.


When they are girls, Cibi, Magda and Livia make a promise to their father – that they will stay together, no matter what.

Years later, at just 15 years old, Livia is ordered to Auschwitz by the Nazis. Cibi, only 19 herself, remembers their promise and follows Livia, determined to protect her sister, or die with her.

In their hometown in Slovakia, 17-year-old Magda hides, desperate to evade the barbaric Nazi forces. But it is not long before she is captured and condemned to Auschwitz.

In the horror of the death camp, these three beautiful sisters are reunited. Though traumatised by their experiences, they are together.

They make another promise: that they will live. Their fight for survival takes them from the hell of Auschwitz, to a death march across war-torn Europe and eventually home to Slovakia, now under iron Communist rule. Determined to begin again, they embark on a voyage of renewal, to the new Jewish homeland, Israel.

Rich in vivid detail, and beautifully told, Three Sisters will break your heart, but leave you amazed and uplifted by the courage and fierce love of three sisters, whose promise to each other kept them alive. Two of the sisters are in Israel today, surrounded by family and friends. They have chosen Heather Morris to reimagine their story in her astonishing new novel, Three Sisters.

What I am currently reading:

Book Cover
A vivid and powerful sequel to The Alchemy Thief. A tale of stolen secrets, kidnapping, slavery, and death.

Left behind as a slave in Morocco while Daniel journeys to the New World with the fearsome corsair Ayoub, Peri gives birth to a daughter. The drive to protect the imperiled lives of those she loves leads Peri to the court of the ruthless sultan, Moulay Ismail. In a city built on the backs of slaves, Peri’s rescue plot hangs by a thread, dependent on a dubious disguise and the man she despises. It will take all of her wit and perseverance to survive.

This spellbinding 2nd novel in the Pirates and Puritans Series takes the reader on a journey from Algonquin villages to Moroccan palaces, during the time when Morocco’s most feared leader rose to power and the American colonies sank into a bloody war named after Metacom.

What books I think I’ll read next:

Book Cover
Deliver us from evil…




Drowning in a meaningless existence flipping burgers, Matthew Davis suddenly collapses from a powerful psychic connection he shares with his twin brother, Jake. The pain is violent and immediate, and Matt knows exactly what it means… hundreds of miles away, Jake has been viciously killed. But instead of severing their connection, the murder intensifies it and Matt begins to suffer the agony of Jake’s afterlife.




Hell bent on solving Jake’s murder in order to break the connection, Matt travels to his troubled hometown of Hatchett, Nebraska, where an old lover and savage new enemies expose the festering wounds that Jake left behind.




Matt tries atoning for Jake’s sins, but when a demon infests the connection between the two brothers, Matt must find a way to sever their bond before his world, and ours, become engulfed in the flames of hell.




Fans of Stephen King’s The Outsider, Stephen Graham Jones’ The Only Good Indians, and William Peter Blatty’s The Exorcist will find this new paranormal thriller impossible to put down.
Book Cover
In Diana Biller’s The Brightest Star in Paris, love is waiting; you only have to let it in.

Amelie St. James, prima ballerina of the Paris Opera Ballet and the people’s saint, has spent seven years pretending. In the devastating aftermath of the Siege of Paris, she made a decision to protect her sister: she became the bland, sweet, pious “St. Amie” the ballet needed to restore its scandalous reputation. But when her first love reappears, and the ghosts of her past come back to haunt her, all her hard-fought safety is threatened.

Dr. Benedict Moore has never forgotten the girl who helped him embrace life again after he almost lost his. Now, he’s back in Paris after twelve years for a conference. His goals are to recruit promising new scientists, and, maybe, to see Amelie again. When he discovers she’s in trouble, he’s desperate to help her—after all, he owes her.

When she finally agrees to let him help, they disguise their time together with a fake courtship. But reigniting old feelings is dangerous, especially when their lives are an ocean apart. Will they be able to make it out with their hearts intact?

Personal

I know that is has been a hot minute since I have done a WWW Wednesday. I have been busy. Actually, I have been so busy that I have started to prewrite my weekly posts on Sunday. So, here’s a brief rundown of everything that has been going on in my life since 9-22,

  1. Miss R had her 8th birthday and BK had his 48th.
  2. BK had to go to trade shows 2 weeks in a row. Both shows started on a Saturday or Sunday and he was gone until the following Friday. It sucked ass.
  3. Miss B had her wisdom teeth out and was recovering well. Then, on Sunday, the lower right side of her face swelled up. Her lower right socket is infected and she is currently on antibiotics
  4. Miss B is now on her 3rd learners permit attempt. The first time she failed. The second time I didn’t have the original birth certificate. She goes on the 25th and, knocking on wood, hopefully passes. Then, onto doing her 60 hours of supervised driving.
  5. Loki and Jesper got neutered last Wednesday. They have recovered well (to the point where Jesper is trying to jump on top of the door again). But, it did set their relationship with Snickers and Skittles back some.
  6. Speaking of cats, we have two new cats that were dumped in my yard. My kids have named them Spooky and Inky. They are both black with green eyes and I believe they are father and son. Both are super skinny (ribs, hips and spine are visible) and both are very friendly. Miss B can pick up Spooky, carry him around and he doesn’t care. Unfortunately, Spooky doesn’t like other cats. We tried to bring him in on Sunday and he went after our other cats. So, outdoors it is until I can either find a new home for him or move to a house that has a basement and they can live there. Sigh.
  7. I got my Covid booster on Saturday and it knocked me off my feet.
