A Month of Giving Thanks Day 15

A Month of Giving Thanks

Hosted by Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun and Michelle @ Because Reading. #30daysofThanks is originally hosted by The Geeky Blogger and with Felicia’s permission, we adopted something similar, and hope you’ll join us!

A Month of Giving Thanks is a month-long challenge. Every day from November 1st to November 30th I will be sharing the love and being thankful by spotlighting some bloggers and books that I’ve been thankful for this year.

Please note that there is no way that I will be able to express my gratitude to everyone of you in just 30 days. I love everyone who visits the blog and even if I don’t get to single you this year, please know that I appreciate you!

A Month of Giving Thanks Day 15

Today I’d like to thank:


Oh Carol. My scandalous blogger buddy, how I ❀ you! Carol’s another Sunday Post friendship that I’m really thankful for. Carol’s just great – she’s sweet and funny and has awesome reviews. Here’s why I say she’s my scandalous friend – some of my favorite parts of her blog include Wicked Wednesdays (erotica reviews) and her Monster Porn Mondays (do I really need to explain?). She reads some truly WOW erotica and I love reading about it. She’ll go there with the unconventional stuff too – and while I probably won’t read quite a bit personally, I love reading her reviews. Maybe I’m living vicariously? And there’s plenty more that I will quite definitely read πŸ˜‰

But Carol reads plenty of stuff for you non-erotica fans too. She actually connected me with my first horror read ever – Cruelty by Ed Lorn. I’m a chicken and it freaked me out, in a really good way. She also connected me with a Sci-Fi audio for review that I loved and I hope to read more in the series soon – and that’s the book I’m thankful for today.

Today I’m thankful I discovered:

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

A Month of Giving Thanks Day 15Streets of Payne by Jeff Brackett

Humanity is in the eye of the beholder.

But for street-smart detective Amber Payne, it's the eyes that aren't human. Cybernetic implants replaced the organics she lost in the line of duty, and their appearance often causes Amber to doubt her self-worth.

Rookie detective Kevin Glass is her partner. And though he may be new, Kevin's unparalleled skill as an elite cyber-surfer makes him an invaluable asset.

When Alta Corp contracts the two of them to solve a case of high stakes data theft, they will need every bit of skill, experience, and determination to succeed. For the more they investigate, the more it becomes evident that this case is much more than it appears, and its resolution may forever alter the world in which they live.

This book surprised me in lots of ways – I cried even – and I need to check the status of the next book!

Go give Carol @ I’m A Voracious Reader some love and add Streets of Payne to your Goodreads shelves! Who are you thankful for? Add your links below and visit the other participating bloggers πŸ™‚

    Oh Em Gee!! I am so far behind and I missed this. I am so bad that I’ll have to flog myself! *hangs head* Thank you so much for being thankful for me and my blog. *groan* That sounds so much dorkier in print than in my head. πŸ˜€

    Yes, I do go there with my reading. I will throw myself on any book to save my friends. I’m just that self-sacrifing. lol And speaking of Monster Porn Monday, I have to get 3 picked out because that day is coming up fast!

    *psst* I just got Cruelty #8 in my inbox (pub date 12/1). Yes, that makes me very cruel. *runs off laughing maniacally*

      Oh yes, you really have Carmel πŸ™‚ Even if you wouldn’t read some of the books reading the reviews is just fun! Carol has a great sense of humor and I laugh pretty much everytime I visit her blog.

      LOL! Those last few credits are really hard to let go of too! I’ve been holding on to two tightly for two months now.

    I think I have been to I’m a Voracious Blogger but not nearly enough by the sounds of it..lol. I don’t read erotica but some times its fun to read them through blog reviews..lol. πŸ™‚ I also haven’t heard of that book but it sounds interesting. How Sci-fi is it cause I can handle light Sci-fi but normally not a huge fan. πŸ™‚

      I read a little erotica, but I’m with you – some of them are just fun to read about through reviews. Carol’s reviews are the best for that, she’s so hilarious!

      So Streets of Payne is kind of Dystopian Sci-Fi I guess. I suck at knowing what makes something really Sci-Fi, but it’s a future version of our world with lots of tech and people can do all kinds of technical advances on their bodies to make them stronger or see better, etc. The tech touches on AI, but that’s the extent of the sci-fi, not aliens or anything like that.

      • A Voracious Reader

        A lot of people don’t realize that Dystopian and Post-Apocalyptic fall under the umbrella of Sci-Fi. As well as Technological, Steampunk, Time Travel, alternate histories and, well, anything to do with space travel/planets/space in general. I loved Streets of Payne and am looking forward to the sequel whenever Jeff gets it written. πŸ™‚

      Couldn’t agree more Bea! So many of the books she reads I’ve never even heard of. And she’s so funny! Love her!

    • Berls

      Right? What I love is that she really goes there with it! She’s not afraid to read some major taboos and her reviews are so funny! Seriously, you’ll love her πŸ™‚
