The House of One Thousand Eyes

Lily and Dunkin

Lily is a transgender person and Dunkin is dealing with bipolar disorder. YA at its finest...this book has been compared to Wonder!

The Adventurers Guild

Zack Loran Clark and Nick Eliopulos

$7.99 $7.35

Full of mages and magicians, this is a Middle Grade fantasy that is a little bit outside of my wheelhouse. Sent to me as a recommendation for my son and I, I'm looking forward to embarking on this one with him!

The Twelve

$16.99 $15.63

The story of two sisters who are trying to hide their superpowers. Reminiscent of Frozen but more sophisticated...Uma and Usagi are female protagonists to watch!

A Thousand Moons

A follow-on to is last book, Days Without End, Barry tells Cole's story of growing up an orphaned Lakota Indian. His previous book covered the lives of her adoptive parents...this one is all about her!

The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls

A little bit reminiscent of An American Marriage, this is the story of what happens to a family when its matriarch falls from grace and gets into trouble with the law.

How to Be Fine: What We Learned from Living by the Rules of 50 Self-Help Books

Jolenta Greenberg and Kristen Meinzer

$25.99 $23.91

By the Book is a self-help podcast that I really enjoy so I'm looking forward to reading this book by its hosts. The only non-fiction on my nightstand right now, this is an exploration of what advice works and what doesn't in the world of self-help!

Phantom Wheel: A Hackers Novel

Tracy Deebs


I've started this one and am so intrigued by the plot! 4 young hackers are recruited by the CIA to fight the end of the digital apocalpyse. More than just a dystopian, sci-fi novel, this is a coming of age story as we watch these young people grow! Billed as YA, I think this book will be equally intriguing to adults!
