A big thank you to Marcia for originating Mailbox Monday. In this weekly meme you share books which came into your home during the week. It has been several years since I participated which is a shame because I’ve received so many good books to read! I used some gift cards a few months back to get a Fire Tablet and I feel like it’s a bit of a game changer for reading ebooks. Anything I download to my Kindle shows up there too! Kinda neat. This week I reserved some books at the library and picked up one on a recommendation from a friend.
Here are the books I picked up this week:
The Kingmaker: All the King’s Men Duet by Kennedy Ryan –
Power. Passion. Betrayal.
Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition.
In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.
My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I’m determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and will do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.
And neither will I.
THE KINGMAKER is the epic and powerful first installment in the All The King’s Men Duet by USA Today bestselling and RITA® Award winning author, Kennedy Ryan.
Mooncakes Written by Suzanne Walker and Illustrated by Wendy Xu –
Nova Huang is still young, but she’s one of the most powerful witches in New England. She spends her days working in her grandmothers’ spell book shop and her nights hunting down the supernatural.
Tam Lang, a genderqueer werewolf, was Nova’s childhood crush. Tam has been wandering from place to place for years until the one fateful night they find themselves back in their hometown… battling a giant horse demon in the woods.
Tam turns to Nova for help, and their latent feelings are rekindled against the backdrop of witchcraft, untested magic, occult rituals, and family ties both new and old in this enchanting tale of self-discovery.
