Happy 3 day weekend!! You know what that means??? More time to read!!
Someone asked me recently how I picked the books I post.
Just know, I try to appeal a little bit to everyone's taste. The books I choose don't necessarily represent my ideals or beliefs. Remember the old adage, you can't judge a book by it's cover.
I hope you like the ones I found for you today. If you do, head over to Amazon and Goodreads and leave an honest review for them.
Remember that pricing is FREE at the time of posting, but this may change at any moment.
Lucy Donovan was supposed to have a weekend of fun in the sun, celebrating her upcoming graduation from college. In a split second, everything changed. A drunk driver ended Lucy's mortal life.
Lucy opens her eyes to a world she never imagined possible and a new destiny: as a Patronus, a guardian of spirits. Adjusting to her new role and abilities while negotiating this confusing realm will test her limits and push her further than she ever dreamed she would go. From wayward spirits who don't want her help to soul stealing vampires, and even a stuck-up British royal, Lucy must brave them all to save one spirit she can't bear to lose.
Further complicating her confusing life is an inexplicable yet growing connection she feels to a member of her team, Max, whose mysterious behavior leaves her both confused and intrigued.
Waking up dead was just the beginning of her problems. Lucy's death is about to become the greatest adventure of her life.

From the widow and collaborator of Alex Haley, award-winning author of Roots, comes a new American epic from the Civil War. The Treason of Mary Louvestre is based on the true story of a seamstress slave from the Confederate town of Norfolk, Virginia. When her owner gets involved with modifications to the ironclad CSS Virginia, Mary copies the plans and sets out to commit treason against the South. Facing certain death as a spy if caught, she treks two hundred miles during the bitter winter of 1862 to reach the office of Union Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles, where she hands over the plans. Mary's act of bravery is ably told by Haley, using a rich narrative and characters drawn from that pinnacle era of American history. First there was Roots, now there is The Treason of Mary Louvestre.

Imagine yourself reading humorous books by Mark Twain, Jerome K. Jerome, Ambrose Bierce, or O. Henry. Well, this is not it, exactly. However, this is as close as it gets for modern humor books.
Here you'll find a collection of funny stories that are based on the following idea:
When you have excluded the improbable, whatever is left, is not as hilarious.
The topics cover diverse and socially-relevant subjects such as: chocolate guns, midget assassins, spell-checkers in space, romantic Frenchmen with a taste for pizza-delivery girls, and, of course, the use of invisible bricks as weapons of mass destruction.
From the Publisher: A totally random study conducted among the author's parents and people who owe him money conclusively shows that this book is laugh-out-loud funny.
P.S. If you've had the perseverance to read the above self-serving nonsense that is designed to make you buy this book all the way up to this point, consider me duly impressed--you are a saint. We should do lunch sometime.
