#OMKindle Weekly TBR: Mar 8 - 15 Edition

Monday, March 7, 2016
#OMKindle, TBR, On My Kindle,

Last week was pretty busy for me; I wrote reviews, and signed up with a company to post comments on forums and blogs.

Posting comments on forums and blogs seems a little less time consuming than writing content for clients' blogs, the competition is less cut-throat and I can engage with the owners of the forums and blogs. I am not going to get rich from doing this, but I am hoping that this gig can help to supplement Kyle's income.

Also, one of Kyle's co-workers has been sick and Kyle brought it home to me. Between the new side-gig and being sick, I am completing reviews as I finish reading books and I am back to reading two books a week. I think that I will get back to reading three per week when I finally get better and figure out how to fit this new gig into my current schedule.

To Be Reviewed

Here are the books that I am going to review this week:

Guns Gods & Robots by Brady Koch, to-be-reviewed, On My Kindle     Beyond Death by Deb McEwan, to-be-reviewed, On My Kindle    The Boston Ranter: Slanted Vignettes from a Native New Englander by Layden Robinson, to-be-reviewed, On My Kindle

I had a difficult time writing a review for one of these books because I really do not know how I feel about it. I am not going to spoil the surprise, so keep an eye on the blog by following me on social media to find out which one it is!

Here are the books that I am reading this week:

The Circuit: Executor Rising (Book 1 of The Circuit Series) by Rhett Bruno

The Circuit: Executor Rising (Book 1 of The Circuit Series) by Rhett Bruno, to-be-read, On My Kindle

The description of this book on the publisher's website makes it sound like a fast-paced, science fiction adventure:
"Centuries after Earth was rendered an uninhabitable wasteland, humanity was forced from its homeworld and founded the Kepler Circuit, a string of colonies throughout the solar system. These settlements provide resources to the remnants of humankind, the most important resource being the newly discovered element—Gravitum—found only in the Earth’s unstable mantle.
But a powerful religious faction known as the New Earth Tribunal has risen to preside over most of the Circuit. Though there is barely a faction left to challenge them, a string of attacks on the Tribunal’s freighters causes them to suspect their mortal enemies, the Ceresians, of foul play.
Tasked with solving the problem is Sage Volus: Tribunal Executor. Spy.
Sage quickly infiltrates the ranks of a roguish, Ceresian mercenary named Talon Rayne, seeking to discover the truth behind the attacks, but the longer she works amidst Talon and his squad, the more she finds her faith in the Tribunal tested.
While her quest for answers only unearths more questions, a new threat is on the rise, and it plans to bring down the Tribune once and for all."
The description of the book reminds me of the story line in the game, Mass Effect 2, in which the protagonist, Commander Shepard, finds herself affiliated with an organization that she was looking to take down. Yes, I said "she" because I created a female Shepard to play.

I am looking forward to seeing how the story plays out. I will read the second book in the series, Progeny of Vale, next week.

The White Russian Caper (Daminen Dickens Mysteries, Book 2) by Phyllis Entis 

The White Russian Caper (Daminen Dickens Mysteries, Book 2) by Phyllis Entis, to-be-read, On My Kindle

I have read the first book in this series, The Green Pearl Caper, which I will be reviewing this week. For the second installment of this series, Goodreads indicates that Damien Dickens has managed to find another case that will likely get him into more trouble: 
"A mortally wounded Miss America entrusts a mysterious Russian coin to Damien Dickens, P.I. before she dies. After Damien disappears while researching the significance of the coin, Millie tracks her husband's abductor to Florida. When his captor falls to his death from the balcony of a 7th floor apartment, Damien escapes; then, he and Millie join forces to unravel the web of intrigue surrounding the Russian coin and its connection to the murder of Miss America."
Since I enjoyed the first installment of this series, I am looking forward to reading this book.

It looks like I have a busy week of reading and writing ahead of me. What is on your TBR list this week? Let me know in the comments, or on social media.

Have a great week!
