I hope everyone in the states that is celebrating is having a fabulous Thanksgiving and getting to eat lots of yummy treats and spend time with loved ones. I love this time of year and how warm and cozy it can be sitting inside surrounded by those that you care and love about most.
I debated on whether or not to just do a Thanksgiving post today or to continue with the underrated theme and I decided to go with it. After all, it is about a day of gratitude and I really am grateful for those authors and books that make my reading time so much fun. I really do love to read more than just about any other hobby I have and I couldn't imagine my life without books.
So today's post is brought to you by Debbie from The Reading Frenzy . If you haven't checked out Debbie's blog yet please do so. She is a huge romance fan and she is always showcasing and reviewing some amazing titles along with some mysteries and others too so there really is a bit for everyone. Definitely take a look!
Today she is bringing us not only books but an author, which I am loving because how often do you find an author that writes in such a wide range of genre and almost all of her books are wonderful? Not too often.
So here is what Debbie has to say about author Donna Augustine and a few of her books she highly recommend:
Just by accident I found a fabulous author who is a master storyteller in the UF/Fantasy genre. Her characters are intelligent, savvy and street smart but still have vulnerabilities and readers get a front row seat to their maturation. Her series usually star a spunky lady and there’s usually a budding romance or two during her tales. She’s lucky that she’s able to support herself with her writing however I still think she deserves a little red carpet treatment.
I’d like to introduce Donna Augustine.
Here’s her Website where you can find more information on her series.
Two days ago, Jo Davids was a waitress by night and a college kid by day, with the unnerving problem of things floating around her.
One day ago, Jo's sexy boss, Cormac, noticed her for all the wrong reasons when she witnessed a man transform into a monster in the basement of his casino.
Today, Cormac ordered her shot. If he's real lucky, she won't die. Because if she does, all hope is lost.
People say karma's a...well, you know. Personally, I don't think I'm that bad. It's not like I wanted this job. I wasn't even in my right mind when I accepted the position.
Now, I'm surrounded by crazy coworkers like Lady Luck, who's a bit of a tramp, and Murphy's Law, who's a bumbling oaf. But the worst is Fate. He's got a problem with transfers like myself, and I have to see him constantly. It's unavoidable. We're hunting the same man—my murderer.
My name is Dahlia but I’m called a Plaguer, a person who survived the Bloody Death. When the virus first hit the world, it ravaged the human race. I thought I was lucky to survive it but survival comes at a cost. Ever since the sickness, I see things and I’m hunted for these visions.
Some seek me out because they want to keep their secrets safe. They don’t want the world to know the truth of what they are. Others, like Dax, want my knowledge. Dax has secrets of his own but as long as he helps me evade the Dark Walkers, he can keep them.
This book is for all the Plaguers, the truth sayers branded and marked as liars, often hunted and sometimes forgotten. This book is for the girl who was right.
Ollie Wit is the strongest Shadow Walker born in decades but it’s a gift with a steep price.
Walking in the Shadowlands can bring untold powers and spells, and even greater risks. Every step into that other world brings her closer to the monsters that have haunted her since a child, destroyed her family and wreaked havoc all around her.
Kane knows Ollie is the key to getting the spell he needs and he’s the answer to ending her torment. But it’s a bargain that brings her closer to her own destruction. Even if she succeeds, will she be able to walk away from the newfound power that comes with walking in the Shadowlands?
Sometimes I wonder what life was like before magic burst into existence, before the Magical War of 810 destroyed our world. What it was like before there were Wyrd Blood, or we were forced into hiding.
And that's what I've been doing for years, hiding me and my crew. But that's about to end. My crew is starving and things are getting dire. When I get desperate enough to try and steal from Ryker, one of the toughest men in these parts, things go bad and my Wyrd Blood origins are outed.
But it's not all bad. Ryker can help keep me alive from the mysterious illness that's been plaguing me. He can also feed my crew. The only thing I have to do in return is start another war.
A big thank you to Debbie for all the wonderful books to check out, I know some of these are also in my TBR pile.
I hope everyone has a safe and lovely Thanksgiving and a safe day tomorrow if you are brave enough to venture out for Black Friday sales.
See you tomorrow for my top picks that haven't already made the list. ;)
