Burning Through Their Eyes by Eugene Knigh
Burning Through Their Eyes - Eugene Knig... Burning Through Their Eyes - Eugene Knight

Burning Through Their Eyes by Eugene Knight is a thriller/science fiction book that was a fast, interesting book to read. I was mesmerized. I gave it four stars only because of the grammatical errors, typos and homonyms. This did not reflect on the quality of the author's writing.

 

Toby, his wife and twin sons have their life interrupted by a kidnapping of one of their infant sons. It's related to his job at the University that is controlled by the NSA. It's a disturbing story about mind manipulation.

 

I received a complimentary copy from Createspace and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.

Burning Alive - Shannon K. Butcher

Book one in the Sentinels was good. I loved the adventure, the characters were strong and carried the plot well. The conflict was big and dramatic, definitely series in the making good, and the sub characters pulled the reader into wanting to know more about the Sentinels and their women. Drake has been fighting the war against the demons for centuries with no hope of peace of any kind coming his way. He feels his time is slipping away with each leaf that falls but isn’t willing to stop fighting until the very end. When he sees Helen across a diner with fear clouding her eyes he is drawn in, but when he touches her and his decades-long pain ends, he knows he will never let her go and will fight to keep her by his side. She has a crippling fear of fire and of burning alive. She has seen herself burn alive in her dreams her whole life and one man stands by and watches as she dies, smiling. When she finally sees him across the diner, she is frozen in fear, but can’t explain why she is so drawn to the man who is going to stand by and watch her die. When demons attack and she is thrust into a world she didn’t know existed, her life will never be the same again. And Drake is going to make sure she has no choice about the matter. Their story was great. Loved it and will read more in this series.

Friday Reads - December 8, 2017
Burning Bright: Four Chanukah Love Stories - Jennifer Gracen,KK Hendin,Stacey Agdern,Megan Hart
Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race - Margot Lee Shetterly
When Dimple Met Rishi - Sandhya Menon

This weekend I am getting my Bah-Humbug self into the holiday spirit even if I need alcohol to do it. The tree is up in its place of honor (second floor landing) and lights strung; the kids just need to put the ornaments on. I'm taking the boy child out tomorrow so he can shop for the family gifts; girl child will get to do it on Monday. I am baking lots of cookies this weekend for Monday's cookie drive on base (spouses' group makes bags of homemade cookies for every Airman living in the dorms - roughly 12,000 cookies are needed).

 

So with what little time I have to read this weekend/upcoming week, here is what I plan to read:

 

1. Burning Bright: Four Chanukah Love Stories by Various Authors

     Hanukkah starts on December 12th. We celebrate (kind of) on the first night.

 

2. Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly

    For an upcoming square and for Pop Sugar. I've already seen the movie and loved it. I'm hoping some non-fiction gets me out of my DNF streak of late.

 

3. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

    Impulse borrow from the library

 

COYER starts next weekend, so I am trying really hard not to read off my list until then. I am seriously striking out on the books for the 16 Tasks for the Festive season challenge - I just DNF'd another book tonight.

Burning Up By Anne Marsh 99 cents!
Burning Up - Anne Marsh

Tt takes a special kind of hero to be a smoke jumper. To take the greatest risks. To live or die in the raging heat of the moment. And it takes a special kind of woman to love him. . .

Where There's Smoke. . .

For Jack Donovan, smoke jumping is a way of life. He lives for the adrenaline rush--the thrill of flying over the burning California hills, the intensity of diving straight into the inferno, the glory of taming the forces of nature. Love is a distant ember compared to the feeling he gets fighting fires--until an emergency call from his hometown brings him face to face with the one woman he can't forget. . .

There's Fire

Lily never got over the handsome rogue who once kissed her senseless--and then left. She vowed she was done with love-'em-and-leave-'em men and small town life. Until a series of malicious fires set by a stalker has her running home to hide. Now, their summer is heating up as Jack fights to save her from the stalker's fiery threats and to convince her to give the passion between them a second chance.

Friday Reads - December 1, 2017
Let Us Dream - Alyssa Cole
Unleashed - Rachel Lacey
Burning Bright: Four Chanukah Love Stories - Jennifer Gracen,KK Hendin,Stacey Agdern,Megan Hart
Roller Girl - Vanessa North
Saga Volume 4 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples

We are heading to our first holiday party of the year (base libraries hold a joint party for staff and volunteers) tonight. Our white elephant/dirty Santa gift is the two books I bought from a local author and had signed by the author plus a cross stitched bookmark from a charity shop in town. I love playing WE/DS because you never know what you will walk away with (last year's gift was a color me calendar that the kids colored in completely on day one of their winter break from school).

 

I read American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang today, my first book of December. It's for a square later in the game; highly recommend to middle grade and younger young adults.

 

On tap for this weekend, my reading will be lots of shorts - my mind can take only so much and I want to keep my reading to relaxing levels.

 

1. Saga Volumes 1-4  by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples - volume 4 is for another square in the game, but I want to refresh my memory so I will just start with volume 1. That will kill an afternoon.

 

2. Let Us Dream by Alyssa Cole - originally published in last year's Daughters of the Revolution anthology, I picked this up when it was published as an individual novella and on sale. Romance between a suffragette (and business woman) and her new chef. It's from Alyssa Cole, so expectations are high. Reading this for a game square.

 

3. Unleashed (Love to the Rescue #1) by Rachel Lacey - contemporary romance with a dog rescue foster mom (and almost completely in remission cancer survivor) and a PI. Not knocking my socks off, not annoying me to the point of DNF, so I am just plodding along for now. Reading for a game square.

 

4. Burning Bright: Four Chanukah Stories by Various Authors - a non-Christmas holiday romance!!! Also for a game square.

 

5. Roller Girl (Lake Lovelace #3) by Vanessa North - I spun the dreidel and landed on this book. F/F contemporary romance. Reading as a result of the game.

 

Happy reading weekend everyone!
