Post title image for #OMKindle Marvelous Monday

Rather than sticking with the dull and unoriginal "TBR List," I decided to change it up a bit and give everyone a shot of positivity at the beginning of the week. Mondays are marvelous for me because I get share what I am going to be reading with you, and I start looking forward to reading all of the books that are on my list for the week.

I have some more blog-related news for you: for those of you who are receiving my newsletters, the pictures are back! I figured out how to specify which posts I want to include in my RSS feed so that the newsletter will not be overwhelmed with coupons. However, I still have yet to figure out how to give that stupid Facebook crawler access to the blog. I will figure it out...eventually.

Furthermore, I want to remind you that I will be unavailable the week of May 1st. I have closed requests for Featured Titles posts until my return on the 9th. I will continue to read and write reviews the week before my vacation in the hopes of having a couple of reviews to share with you upon my return.

What I am Reviewing

This week I will share reviews from two books that are polar opposites of each other. This is one of the reasons why I love book blogging; one day I am reading a thriller, and the next day I am reading a children's book. I will never get stuck in a rut if this keeps up!

What I am Reading

I will be reading books written by authors that I have worked with in the past, Ellie Firestone and Madge H. Gressley. 

Super Sporty 4: The Curse of the Delba by Ellie Firestone

Sporty and her best friend, Harley, are two young horses who play basketball for Horsecitty's professional team called the Shorthorns. They're also superheroes.

In this, the fourth book in the Super Sporty series, Sporty and Harley uncover a terrible secret: one of their best friends is really a mysterious supervillain called the Delba! Trapped in the Delba's volcano lair, Sporty and Harley are faced with two dilemmas: What is Operation Freeze? And how are they ever going to get out alive?      ~ Summary from Goodreads ~

I have read three of the books in Ellie's Super Sporty series, and I enjoyed them all. I am looking forward to reading this fourth installment.

The Red Coat - A Sophie Collins Mystery by Madge H. Gressley

Sophie Collins is not just another soppy, teenage sleuth. Raw and gutsy, this street-wise, self-determined gal, depends on no one. Left to her own devices at fourteen when her mother disappears, and believing she has no family, she tries to make things work on her own, but old lady Crabtree, at her school, turns Sophie’s life upside down when she reports her to Family Services. Escaping the foster home in Trenton, Sophie takes out on her own, and slowly makes her way to her mother’s hometown of Tuck Point Falls. Suspense builds, as Sophie finds herself drawn into a murder mystery, when she finds a red coat in Johnson’s Department Store's dumpster. In this cliff-hanging, thrilling, action-packed murder mystery, Sophie finds the evidence that puts the murderers behind bars and solves the mystery of who she is.      ~ Summary from Goodreads ~

I have worked with Madge before; I reviewed her Inescapable romance series, so I am interested to read the first installment of this YA series.

What are you reading this week? Have you read the books that I am reviewing or reading? Let me know in the comments.

Have a marvelous Monday, and an awesome week!
