Reading List – November 2020

You know what I’ve read a lot of this year? Freaking classics.  Important books that you’re supposed to look at deeply and analyze for way more than just “did I like it.”

This month, we’re delving into the trash-heap of stupid books that interest me for no reason other than the fact that I like some silly nonsense on the back cover.

Rebel Mechanics – Shanna Swendson

51s4riwsw5lI don’t know what this book is about and I’ve never heard of it before. It’s also YA, which I don’t typically dabble in much. However, it’s also about an alternate universe in which British royalty have magic and used that magic in order to put down the 1776 Rebellion in the Americas. Now, in this steampunk novel, there’s a new batch of rebels brewing up (lol, tea party reference).

So yeah, this likely-trashy book is right up my alley, and I don’t care what you think about me for reading it.

Mass Effect: Revelation – Drew Karpyshyn

51tbjieuzqlThe Mass Effect game trilogy was just fantastic. If you discount the actual ending or believe in Indoctrination Theory, it had an amazing story with great player interactivity. It’s widely considered one of the greatest sets of games ever produced.

So I found out recently that a novel was published alongside the first game in 2007, and it was written by the head writer for the first two games. Gah, I suckered in and read this so hard. So hard.

Manassas – James Reasoner

41ojiwvzd0l._sx332_bo1204203200_I checked this book out at my library because I have an unfinished Civil-War era novel sitting on my computer, and I didn’t know how much detailed research people expect from historical fiction. Since my book revolves around Chickamauga and Sherman’s March, I wanted to read a book that focused on a battle and see how that worked. This book was at my library, so I thought I’d give it a whirl.

Also, the eighth book in this “The Civil War Battle Series” is about Chickamauga, so I want to test and see if this is worth continuing.

The Leftovers: Something from YOU?

Do you have a published book and a method of purchasing it that isn’t sketch as hell?  I need indie books to read next year, and those slots will be opening before you know it!  Let me know if you have something you’d like me to peruse!
