How’s your week going so far? Mine’s a little meh. I’m banking on Friday once again, but for good reason.
My first paycheck after being extremely broke (from paying off my credit card) is this week, and I’m excited for things to take a more positive turn going forward.
I decided to take a mental health day on Friday as well as have a debt-free happy hour with some friends, so I’m really looking forward to that.
All right, blabbing aside, let’s get into some book recommendations!
If you’re not familiar, every Wednesday I do a meme called WWW Wednesday.
This meme is a challenge where you simply share what you’re reading, what you’ve recently finished, and what you hope to read in the near future.
The meme is currently handled by Taking On A World of Words, and anybody can participate.
Simply read the 3 W questions below and answer them should you want to:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
There’s been an accident. Someone crash-landed a Yeerk Bug fighter. And the Yeerks have been trying to cover it up – quickly. But not before Tobias spots it. So the Animorphs and Ax decide to steal the ship to show the world that Earth has been invaded.
Opinion so far:
I’ve only just started this last night right before bed, but I am all in! This book is in Jake’s POV, and he’s always been a very stable-minded leader, so I’m curious to see what happens!
I know I’ve been neglecting my Animorphs reads a bit in the past month, and I’m definitely going to get back on track going forward. Stay tuned!
The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the Academy would touch…
A cocky diplomat with a black belt in sarcasm
A sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates
A smart-ass techwiz with the galaxy’s biggest chip on his shoulder
An alien warrior with anger management issues
A tomboy pilot who’s totally not into him, in case you were wondering
And Ty’s squad isn’t even his biggest problem—that’d be Aurora Jie-Lin O’Malley, the girl he’s just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler’s squad of losers, discipline-cases and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy.
Though I had some small qualms with this book, it was a lot of solid fun for me. Sci-fi, adventure, intergalactic battles, what’s not to love? Definitely a great read for you sci-fi lovers out there!

Next on my TBR:
In 1934, almost everyone struggles to pay the rent, and Alex Dawson is no exception. To support his writing habit, he moonlights with his mentor Donnie as a bodyguard for the mayor. It’s dull work, until the night a handsome, golden-eyed stranger catches his eye–and both his boss and his mentor are killed when his back is turned.
Jobless and emotionally adrift, Alex vows to find the murderer before the corrupt police can pin the blame on him. But he soon discovers he’s in over his head. The golden-eyed stranger turns out to be a mob boss’s cousin, and a suspicious stack of money in Donnie’s dresser leads Alex to discover that his mentor and the mayor were involved in something more crooked than fundraising dinners and campaign speeches. As the death count rises amid corruption, mob politics, and anarchist plots, Alex realizes that the murders aren’t political or even business. This is the work of a spree killer, and Alex and his new boyfriend are the only ones who can stop them.
Opinion so far:
Thea is a dear friend of mine, and one in my scribe tribe team of awesome authors. This is her first book, and I couldn’t be more excited to read it! My goal is to try and read this before next week, though I’m doubtful I can do that, so if need be, I will let the reading bleed into my Halloween segment before switching over.
Believe me, it’s worth it. This woman is gifted in her craft!
That’s a Wrap!
Okay folks, that’s my WWW Wednesday for this week.

I loved Aurora Rising – the characters made that book for me. Glad you enjoyed it!
Yeah, it was quite the roller coaster ride. Definitely ready for the next one!
No, I haven’t read any of those three books, but No Good Men sounds good, noir-good. I am (still) reading Invisible Chains by lane about voodoo and vampires, and I think a werewolf just “jumped” (haha) onto the scene. I am also reading Wasp Farm, a nonfiction book, so I can learn more about those creepy little things.
I’ve actually read an earlier draft of No Good Men, and let me tell you, it’s very good! I’m curious to see what changed in the last few rounds of edits.
Ooo voodoo and vampires? Sign me up! I’ll check that out.
OMG I’m terrified of bees and wasps! You’re braver than I am. I think even reading about them would freak me out!
