#OMKindle TBR List: Mar 15th to 22nd

On My Kindle TBR List for March 15th to 22nd

I got a lot of emails last week about On My Kindle, and I am pleased to say that I should be featuring two books this week and possibly two giveaways for those books, so stay tuned!

I also received a sponsorship offer from I'm In Marketer. They are offering to develop a mobile app for the blog in exchange for posting content (coupons) on one page of my blog. A mobile app could increase exposure and engagement for On My Kindle, and readers who have the app will receive notifications of blog posts, featured titles, sales, and giveaways that are posted on this blog.

I shared a little bit more about the changes on my website as well as the changes to my privacy policy and disclosure. If you have not had a chance to read the article, you might want to check it out.

Personal Stuff

If you've heard about the flooding in Springfield, MO on the news, Kyle and I are fine. Some of the buildings in our apartment community were not so lucky, the bottom levels of two or three apartment buildings were completely flooded; that means 16-24 individuals and families are essentially homeless until they are relocated by the management company.

Our luck continued as our area of the parking lot was not flooded. Vehicles that parked near drains and in the lower parts of the parking lots were damaged due to water, or by floating and impacting other vehicles.

I am a little miffed that the local media is not covering this; they have posted pictures of some areas in Springfield from last night, but it must not be considered important news since the water has receded.

To Be Reviewed

This week, I am going to review a book by an author who I have worked with before, Pete Alex Harris, and review the first book in the Damien Dickens Mystery series by Phyllis Entis. The review for the second book in the Damien Dickens Mystery series will be posted next week.

This week I am reading a contemporary novel that leaves some reviewers uncertain about how they feel about the book. The second book on my TBR list this week is the second book in Rhett Bruno's The Circuit Series. I read the first book in the series last week and I am glad that I do not have to wait long to see how this second book plays out.

In Defense of the Moth by Johnny Newport

To be read by On My Kindle: In Defense of the Moth by Johnny Newport

Here is the description of this book from Goodreads:
"It is said the moon’s spell can move us and nobody understands her pull like Johnny Gomez.

Johnny, a devil-may-care and fatalistic salesman, remains tethered to his privileged life by a love for his children, his career and the moon—and not necessarily in that order. In fact, it’s Johnny’s lifelong passion for the moon, through both obsessive, independent study and a communal involvement in an astronomy society, that serves as the only outward distraction as a life of standard struggles waxes into a burgeoning crisis..."

"...If you like allegories and/or philosophical apologies for acute insanity, grab “In Defense of the Moth or A Meaningless Dance in the Blinding Heat and Light” and join the eclipse."
The book has gotten mixed reviews from readers on Amazon, but readers on Goodreads seem to like it. This has piqued my curiosity about the book and I am anxious to see why some reviewers are unsure about it.

The Circuit: Progeny of Vale (Book 2 of The Circuit Trilogy) by Rhett C. Bruno 

To be read by On My Kindle: The Circuit: Progeny of Vale by Rhett C. Bruno

Progeny of Vale will be released tomorrow, March 15th, so I am really anxious to read it and review it for Rhett in a timely manner. The description of the book on Goodreads indicates that I will enjoy this second book as much as I did the first:
"In the thrilling sequel to THE CIRCUIT: EXECUTOR RISING, Cassius Vale has drawn the Circuit into open war.

After arriving on Ceres Prime, ADIM, ever the loyal companion created by Cassius Vale, is hesitant to help the Ceresians. Their hatred for his Creator will never wane and he starts to understand the danger all of Cassius’ many rivals pose. ADIM must realize the true magnitude of his abilities in order to keep him safe.

When Sage Volus finds herself a captive of Cassius, she begins to struggle with her role in the coming war, and what exactly it means to be an Executor. The removal of her cybernetic implant reveals emotions she thought she’d buried too deep to be found. She must make a decision on who she truly wants to serve: Cassius Vale, The Tribune, or herself.

After breaking free of the Solar-Ark Amerigo and certain death, Talon Rayne finds himself in unusual company. His quests to hold his daughter again brings him to places he never thought he’d go--into the very arms of his people's most hated foe..."
I am such a fan-girl when it comes to science fiction, so I am glad that Rhett was kind enough to send me an ARC of this book; otherwise I would have had to forget that I am supposed to be a dignified book reviewer and begged him for a copy.
