#MarvelousMonday, Lexi, TBR, currently reading, On My Kindle Book Reviews

Last week at the store wasn't nearly as brutal as I thought it would be. It appears that most of the residents of this fair town aren't interested in purchasing shoes on Thanksgiving or Black Friday.

Rather than regale you with my insights about the consumer market here in my fair town, or my thoughts about managers who take employees up on their offers to give up one of their days off to help the store out and then fail to schedule them for an alternate day off; I'll just say that the past week has sapped my energy, and I'm a little pissed that I didn't have the energy to share a #FlashbackFriday post with you last week because I agreed to help out at the store. Rest assured, it was the first time I volunteered to give up one of my days off to help out this employer and it will be the last. To make it up to you, I promise that I'll share an awesome book in this week's #FlashbackFriday post.

Oh yeah... Lexi was extremely butthurt with the change in our schedules and tormented her Uncle Mike relentlessly last week to show her displeasure.

Moving on to more positive and happy topics... I managed to finish reading the book I started last week, Zoraida Grey and The Family Stones by Sorchia DuBois, and started reading Titan's Wrath by Rhett C. Bruno on Saturday.

Titan's Wrath on Goodreads, Rhett C. Bruno, currently reading
Two men are caught on both sides of a violent, off-world rebellion in this standalone, Science Fiction epic set in Rhett C. Bruno's bestselling Titanborn Universe.

After inciting rebellion against Earth throughout Titan's off-world colonies, Kale Trass learns that leadership isn’t only about fighting. Keeping control of his people--even his own family--requires a different set of skills. Following a pivotal battle over Saturn, Kale travels deep into enemy territory under the guise of seeking peace, though peace is the last thing on his mind.

Malcolm Graves used to be an infamous Collector for a powerful Earther corporation--and then he nearly lost his life on Titan. Now he’s retired. But when Kale’s wake of destruction follows Malcolm to Mars and claims the life of a friend, it's time for the ex-Collector to dust off his pulse-pistol and leap back into a fight he thought he’d left behind.

With the solar system divided, heroes are few and short-lived ... but someone has to put the self-proclaimed King Trass of Titan in his place.

The Prophetess on Goodreads, TBR, On My Kindle Book Reviews
High up in the heavens, righteousness faces off against the greatest dissenter of all time, and in the crossfire, an angel loses his wings…

Fallen from Heaven and forced to live amongst the humans in exile, angel Ezekiel bares the tragic fate of a disgraced angel. Having overheard the rebellious Lucifer’s plans to rise up against the sanctuary of Heaven, Ezekiel remains silent, and for his inaction, he is cast from the pearly gates and onto the unforgiving lands of the mortals. Two thousand years pass with a cold and hollow wind at his back, and for a moment, Ezekiel resigns to his fate.

However, in the year 2016, the winds of fate begin to change, and redemption comes in the form of his brother, Gabriel, who bares great news. Ezekiel is given a chance to return to Heaven, but only once he has taken down Molach, an evil demon on the rise. If Ezekiel can stop Molach from helping Lucifer return, he will be welcomed back into Heaven. However, there is more than just a demon in his path, Ezekiel must uncover what else fate has in store for him, including a lovely solitary Prophetess named Isabelle and the endless possibility for joy and whimsy she offers. Can Ezekiel rise once more to the great destiny that awaits him? Or has he been amongst the fickle mortals for far too long?
This one has been sitting on my Netgalley shelf for a while, and I am just now getting around to looking at it online. A lot of reviewers seem to like the plot but can't look past the editing. I'm intrigued because I can usually see past editing problems, so we shall see what I make of it.

Have a marvelous Monday and a happy week!
