Marvelous Monday, Lexi, Charity Rowell, On My Kindle Book Reviews

Lexi got a bath yesterday, and this was the best picture I could get of her after I bathed and dried her. The whole experience left her feeling rather butt-hurt so after scowling at me for a bit, she curled up and went to sleep.

Last week, I noticed a job ad looking for people to help set up a shoe store that will be opening this upcoming Friday. I figured, at worst, I'd earn enough to get Lexi her Heartgard and pick up a couple of prescriptions. Best case scenario, the employer would be willing to work around my therapy appointments. After a brief meeting with the District Manager yesterday, it looks like she's interested in bringing me on part-time and is willing to give me the days off I need for appointments.

With everything that's been going on recently, I've neglected the Featured Title and Flashback Friday section of my blog. I'm planning to rectify this, but it may be another week or so until I can resume featuring books.

Soul Mender by R.S. Dabney on Goodreads
In a wild escape to avoid becoming the sixth victim of the elusive Rocky Mountain Murderer, twenty-two-year-old Riley Dale finds herself flung into a universe parallel to her own, where Las Vegas is known for its churches, terrorist attacks are initiated by the United States, and peace can be found in the darkest corners of the globe.

As the deadly visions that have haunted her since childhood become real, Riley is confronted with the implausible story of a world split in two and the stark contrast between good and evil in people she thought she knew.

Racing deeper into the mystery of the new world, Riley discovers the explosive truth about her ancestors who have been hunted for thousands of years because of a single mistake made long ago.

And now it’s her turn to pay for that blunder.

Pursued by both the government and a clandestine sect of assassins, Riley must ally with the only people in the parallel universe willing to keep her safe—the drug-addicted, prostituting other half of her soul, and the counter soul of a man who tortured and killed five young women.
I'm almost finished with The Soul Mender and I'll be moving on to the next book tonight or tomorrow.

Eclipse: Shadows of Eprus by Meredith Cole on Goodreads
Eprus is the medieval fantasy world of Eclipse. In this world, the capitol, Leydford, is home to the Elite School, where warriors are brought up from infancy and trained. At 16 years of age, the young warriors (or Elites Squires, as they are called) are given a series of rigorous tests which, if they pass, will lead to being knighted an Elite of the King. Eclipse is the story of three Elite Squires; a young woman by the name of Nyla Fleetwood, her beloved, Soren Rainey, and their closest friend and ally, Kieran Evans. Their lives drastically change after Nyla's tests are sabotaged and she leaves the Elite School forever. However, Soren and Kieran pass, forcing them to remain and be knighted as Elites. Nearly a year later, Nyla stumbles upon a sleepy little village called Wyndmere. The town is little more than a history book and the people who inhabit it are easily frightened and stirred up; they don't take kindly to strangers, either. But Nyla meets and makes friends with Gracie Randall, the owner of Wyndmere's only inn. Things seem to be going well enough... That is until she stumbles upon the town's darkest secret. Two weeks afterwards, Soren and Kieran are commissioned by the King of Eprus. Their mission? To discover the origins of the fire that burned down Castle Wyndmere.

I've been reviewing quite frequently for Readers' Favorite because I receive some money from them for my work.
