Happy Sunday!

With new surge suppressor tower installed and many new power cord backups happily put away, this is one happy Sunday!  Now that everything is done, I’m happily typing away, even though storms are gathering with more forecast for tomorrow!  Happiness is backup cords!

  1. Scrolling through recs list like this always reminds me of titles I already have on TBR yet …forgot/haven’t got the time to read yet. There are a couple from your list had me like that. 😉
    Here are a few of mine on soldiers/warriors books:
    – Astrid Amara’s Policy of Lies series (A Policy of Lies & Trustworthy) for sci-fi
    – KJ Charles’s new Green Men series (Spectred Isle) is my new favorite on historical paranormal (I’m lucky enough to snatch an arc).

  2. For SF – Chaos Station series by Jenn Burke & Kelly Jensen and Dark Space series by Lisa Henry.
    For historical – Seven Summer Nights by Harper Fox and The Soldier’s Scandal by Cat Sebastian.

  6. Nice list of contemporary to add to my tbrs, and I concur on many listed for sci-fi, especially The Interscission Project series. One I’ll add is one I cut my m/m teeth on a while back, the Hellgate series by Mel Keegan. Many good historicals are listed too, and some not yet mentioned yet from the naval/age of sail (M. Kei’s Pirates of the Narrow Seas), civil war (Purgatory by Jeff Mann), WWI (Pat Barker’s Regeneration trilogy), WWII (The Lonely War by Alan Chin).
