Recommended Pick – Women’s Fiction

This book was recommended (specifically in audio, but your mileage will vary by how much you enjoy audio) on one of the book forums I’m on:

You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) An intriguing title since it seems to me there is a lot of weird on the internet!

In the tradition of #Girlboss and Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, a funny, quirky, and inspiring memoir from online entertainment mogul, actress, and “queen of the geeks” Felicia Day about her unusual upbringing, her rise to Internet stardom, and embracing her individuality to find success in Hollywood.

The Internet isn’t all cat videos – almost.

There’s also Felicia Day – violinist, filmmaker, Internet entrepreneur, compulsive gamer, hoagie specialist, and former lonely homeschooled girl who overcame her isolated childhood to become the ruler of a new world – or at least the world of Internet-geek fame and Goodreads book clubs.

And this one caught my eye probably due to the skeleton…It’s also on sale, which doesn’t hurt any.

The Peach Keeper

It’s the dubious distinction of thirty-year-old Willa Jackson to hail from a fine old Southern family of means that met with financial ruin generations ago. The Blue Ridge Madam—built by Willa’s great-great-grandfather and once the finest home in Walls of Water, North Carolina—has stood for years as a monument to misfortune and scandal. Willa has lately learned that an old classmate—socialite Paxton Osgood—has restored the house to its former glory, with plans to turn it into a top-flight inn. But when a skeleton is found buried beneath the property’s lone peach tree, long-kept secrets come to light, accompanied by a spate of strange occurrences throughout the town. Thrust together in an unlikely friendship, united by a full-blooded mystery, Willa and Paxton must confront the passions and betrayals that once bound their families—and uncover the truths that have transcended time to touch the hearts of the living.

Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off

So there’s this big blogger contest going on to select top self-published books and narrow it down to one. In the process there’s semi-finalists by some blogs (Under Witch Moon semi-finaled on a blog!) Not all blogs are picking semi-finals and not all blogs are reviewing the various books but some are. I’ll be posting some of the books that have made semi-finals and finals. Today’s highly rated book and the first semi-finalist pick of Bookwork Blues:

Valley of Embers

Princess Mononoke meets Avatar: The Last Airbender in an epic fantasy debut critics are calling “exceptionally well-crafted.”

For hundreds of years, the flame-wielding Embers have been the last line of defense against the nightmare creatures from the World Apart, but the attacks are getting worse. Kole Reyna guards Last Lake from the terrors of the night, but he fears for his people’s future.

When Kole is wounded by a demon unlike any they have seen before, the Emberfolk believe it is a sign of an ancient enemy returned, a powerful Sage known as the Eastern Dark.

Kole has never trusted in prophecy, but with his people hanging on the precipice, he reluctantly agrees to lead the Valley’s greatest warriors in a last desperate bid for survival. Together, they will risk everything in search of a former ally long-thought dead, and whether Kole trusts him or not, he may be the only one capable of saving them.
