Marvelous Monday

#MarvelousMonday, TBR, Currently Reading

Last week was busy here at On My Kindle. I had a couple of job interviews, a featured title post to create, two reviews to share, and a giveaway to set up.

 I also completed the "job history" and "adult function" forms (more like booklets) for Social Security, which I was just absolutely overjoyed and enthusiastic about completing because they were not overwhelming at all. It really is a shame that nobody has created a standardized "sarcasm font" because I'd be using it heavily right now.

This week I will implement the posting schedule I discussed last week, begin training with a new employer, visit my primary doctor, meet my new psychologist, go to another job interview, share my usual two reviews, and share a new release on Friday. This is the kind of thing that happens when I start thinking about how boring my life is. Thankfully, my training and work schedules will consist of 5 4-hour days which will, hopefully, keep me from feeling too overwhelmed.

Just Finished

This is a book from Readers' Favorite that has been waiting for a review for months. The blurb looked intriguing, so I decided to read it. I know, I know... I have a ton of books to read and I'm adding more to the pile. What can I say? I have a soft spot for indie authors who have waited forever in a day for reviews. It was published in January 2017 and only has one review on Amazon.

Daughters of Atlas by Tyler Art on Goodreads
To the untrained eye, the clusters of women strolling around Geneva Grace College’s campus look strikingly similar—one could even dare say interchangeable. And they just might be right, except for one particular group.

The Pleiades break all of the rules. Seven women, led by roommates, Kennedy and Laurel, dare to navigate the system at large in their own unique ways, facing their own unique obstacles. They are the runner, the philosopher, the photographer, the prodigy, the girl next door, the stickler and the best friend. Each of them will come of age in a society that would rather keep them innocent, unsuspecting and unquestioning. It’s not just the inescapable culture, either. Sometimes the most dangerous adversaries are those they already know and trust.

Even at a small college, the friendships forged among young women can be eye opening and enriching, challenging and complex, destructive and detrimental. For the Pleiades, their freshman year will be a whirlwind of new ideas, moral decisions, and first loves—sometimes between each other.

United or divided, they will test their faith in others and themselves, most of all. Some will succeed and others will fail. Some will stand firm in their beliefs, and others will learn the liberty of letting go.
