What am I reading?

I get asked this question alot, what are you reading?

When I was in high school my creative writing teacher told me that a good writer should always be reading, so I've taken that advice to heart and even though I'm busy with a full-time job, toddler, and a writing career I still find time to read.

In the last few months I have read quite a few great books, but here are some that stand out to me that I've read recentlly and think you all should check out to. (Some of them are free on Amazon!)

Sleepers (The Swarm Trilogy, Book 1)An adoptee raised in a foreign land, sixteen-year-old Lianne was content with her life as handmaiden to the queen, until a spell cast on her at birth activated. Now she's filled with uncontrollable rage and access to magic she thought had been bled from her people years ago. Even her years of secret training in elite hand-to-hand combat and meditation can't calm the fires raging inside her.

Her heart is torn between two boys, the one she's always loved and the one who always ignored her. But when the kingdom threatens to tear itself apart due to rumors surrounding the queen's alleged affair, who will Lianne protect and who will she destroy?
 it's FREE on Amazon!

Deadlocked: A Sookie Stackhouse NovelThe latest in the book that the hit show True Blood is based off. I would not recommend this book unless you have read the rest in the series. It's a complicated plot, but I cannot put this series down!

Cross My HeartTrue love can blossom in unexpected places. This is Jaden pretending not to notice. . . .

Jaden McEntyre and Parker Whalen are a wrong fit from the start. Jaden is driven and focused, Harvard Med School within reach. Parker has a past—a reputation—and the rumors about his mysterious habits abound. So there’s no reason why, when they're assigned to work together on a project in English, they should discover they have anything in common, or even like each other, and they definitely shouldn't be falling in love.

I got a sneak peak of this book. Jealous?

Eight months ago, Kira Moore revealed to the mindreading world that mindjackers like herself were hidden in their midst. Now she wonders if telling the truth was the right choice after all. As wild rumors spread, a powerful anti-jacker politician capitalizes on mindreaders’ fears and strips jackers of their rights. While some jackers flee to Jackertown—a slum rife with jackworkers who trade mind control favors for cash—Kira and her family hide from the readers who fear her and jackers who hate her. But when a jacker Clan member makes Kira’s boyfriend Raf collapse in her arms, Kira is forced to save the people she loves by facing the thing she fears most: FBI agent Kestrel and his experimental torture chamber for jackers.

You should leave me a comment. It would probably make me smile and then I will probably comment back. Unless you are a spambot. Then I will probably just ignore you.
