My Own Summer Reading List

I truly enjoy scifi, thrillers, the paranormal and romance (and all the mashups you can make with these genres!). It’s what I live for. 🙂

So, even though I want to read nonfiction because I know it’s good for my brain, my mind, my general personhood development…I still go back to my passion and read what feels good.  That said, I’ve already purchased and downloaded the three books below to my Kindle.  Who knows in what order I will read them but read them I will!

I’m also focused on reading books from a relatively new independent book publisher, Inkshares.  The founders all came from traditional publishing but felt that readers should have more of a say in what books get published.  Therefore, on Inkshares, writers can put their stories into draft mode and build a readership first.  Then, they can make their book available for sale and that’s called funding mode.  If that author received a certain number of book sales, presto!  Their book will become published.  Kind of nifty!

Anywho, the first three books are from Inkshares.  All three have been reader-approved and are published via Inkshares.  Plus, all three are also available on Amazon, and other fine book retailers, too.

What Made Me Want To Read This Book:

Mike Auburn dangles above the city of Chicago from the beams of a half-built skyscraper. He is seconds from plummeting towards the circuit board of buildings and streetlights below, but oblivion is not what he seeks—it’s the dead.

Obsessed with discovering evidence of the afterlife, Mike’s death-defying stunts have brought him closer than ever to lifting the veil of reality, always just out of reach. However, his ventures to the edge have not gone unnoticed, and a mysterious organization by the name “O’Neill” seeks to recruit him to their own cause: preparing the city for impending Ragnarok, the end of the world as they know it. – book synopsis

What Made Me Want to Read This Book: In a world where magic, technology, and nature have merged, the few who can control Runes hold dominance over all of creation. All believe that Aleksi, a sixteen-year-old orphan, was blessed to be born with a Rune embedded in his palm, but that’s only because they don’t know the truth—Aleksi’s Rune is so powerful it’s killing him. – book synopsis

What Made Me Want to Read This Book: Imagine that you never aged — that you would forever remain young and vital, impervious to the ravages of time. For Alessandra, a woman whose genetic code keeps her eternally young—perhaps even making her immortal—this fantasy is a reality. But it’s not as idyllic as it seems. – book synopsis

What made me want to read this book: “This book captures the true essence of innocence, happiness, love, passion, and erotica between a man and a married woman who met on–line and have never seen each other’s face or even talked on the phone.” – from an Amazon reviewer
