I am enjoying reading four books at once. Normally this isn’t something I do, but I couldn’t help it. I got ahead of myself. Carried away like Mary Poppins.  I have also enjoyed reading different plots and listening one book on audio for my long drives to work.

Tinfoil Heart

Releasing: April 24th, 2018 

This week I received Daisy Prescott’s ARC of Tinfoil Heart. I am only a few chapters in, but I absolutely love it. Witty, funny, the story is fascinating making me glad I am getting back into Indie reading. 

Tinfoil

Description: 

A new romantic comedy about love, letting go, and little green men from USA Today Bestselling author Daisy Prescott.

My father was abducted by aliens.
Or so I believed for the last eighteen years.

After my mother’s death, I moved to Roswell, capital of all things alien. I’m going to find out the truth and nothing will stop me . . . except Boone Santos.

Compared to the intergalactic tinfoil hat brigade, he’s a god amongst mere mortals. Too handsome for his own good (and mine), with a grumpy arrogance, and the most beautiful smile ever—he smashes my plan to pieces like a UFO crashing into the desert.

I need a tinfoil hat for my heart.

Do I believe in aliens? I’m not sure.
What do I believe? I’m not going to fall in love with Boone. Definitely not . . .

Dread Nation 

Justina Ireland. 

I know I probably won’t finish this book before it is due back at the library, but I will definitely check it back out to finish it. Even if that means waiting in line for a copy. Plus the cover is totally Old American badass! 

Dread

Description: 

Jane McKeene was born two days before the dead began to walk the battlefields of Gettysburg and Chancellorsville—derailing the War Between the States and changing America forever. In this new nation, safety for all depends on the work of a few, and laws like the Native and Negro Reeducation Act require certain children attend combat schools to learn to put down the dead. But there are also opportunities—and Jane is studying to become an Attendant, trained in both weaponry and etiquette to protect the well-to-do. It’s a chance for a better life for Negro girls like Jane. After all, not even being the daughter of a wealthy white Southern woman could save her from society’s expectations.

But that’s not a life Jane wants. Almost finished with her education at Miss Preston’s School of Combat in Baltimore, Jane is set on returning to her Kentucky home and doesn’t pay much mind to the politics of the eastern cities, with their talk of returning America to the glory of its days before the dead rose. But when families around Baltimore County begin to go missing, Jane is caught in the middle of a conspiracy, one that finds her in a desperate fight for her life against some powerful enemies. And the restless dead, it would seem, are the least of her problems.

Transcend 

Jewel E. Ann 

Two chapters in and so far my heart has splattered inside my chest. I expect it to come when I continue reading this book. 2018 is the year of Duets, and I plan on reading everyone of them. 

Description:

“In another life, she was my forever.” 

An unexpected tragedy leaves Professor Nathaniel Hunt a widower alone with a newborn baby. 

He hires a nanny. She’s young, but well-qualified, with a simple life, a crazy name obsession, and a boyfriend she met at the grocery store. 

Over time, he discovers she knows things about him—things that happened before she was born—like a hidden scar on his head, his favorite pizza, and how he cheated on a high school Spanish test. 

She speaks familiar words and shares haunting memories that take him back to over two decades earlier when he lost his best friend in a tragic accident. 

“I’m afraid of what’s going to happen when you realize I’m not her.”

Transcend is a sexy, mind-bending journey that uncovers possibilities, challenges beliefs, and begets the age-old question: is there life after death?

Indelible 

Karin Slaughter

I cannot, not read a Karin Slaughter book. I am invested in Lena, Sara, and Jeffrey. This series makes my drives more bearable. I get to sit and listen to an amazing narrator, Kathleen Early narrate my favorite authors book. There is nothing better than that!

There you have it, my “An ARC and Three Books”. I am keeping myself busy, besides being a mom and also reading three textbooks. But I am a reader at heart. One that needs balance. Plus, I like to keep my mind busy and it feels good to just be me. A reader. A busy one where the only thing I am rewarded with is plots, characters, and the words within the pages.
