My two youngest kids have been enjoying the National Geographic Kids books. During the month of May Nat Geo Kids book is celebrating DinoMAYnia! This time around, they had the opportunity to check out a Dino themed book package.
My 12 year old was immediately drawn to the Nat Geo Ultimate Dino-pedia. He sat for over an hour reading through the book, excitedly telling me facts about different dinosaurs. Asking me if I ever heard of some of them, truth is, I really hadn’t.
When my 8 year old came home I told her we received some books to check out. she went over to the books and started sorting through them. She was drawn to the So Cool! Dinos book. This small book is packed with easy to read and understand facts about dinosaurs. It’s the perfect size to pack in a travel bag or suitcase for down time too. The colorful, well illustrated pictures in the book are very eye catching too
One of my favorite books in the Dino-packed package is the Weird But True Dinosaurs book. This book has 300 dino related facts. I was flipping through and found a lot of interesting facts right away. Did you know that there is a hotel in Japan that has robotic dinosaurs that work the front desk?
There are dinosaur books for all ages in this package. Something for everyone you might say.

As I go through looking for deals on Amazon I see book suggestions. I still have books sitting on my shelf at home or sitting on my Kindle that I haven’t had time to read so I just add them to my wish list.
I’m all over the board with books. I enjoy paranormal romances, thrillers and suspense, cozy mysteries, light-hearted reads, true stories of struggle and triumph, an more. I also love a good fairytale retelling especially if it’s more grown-up or has a unique twist. I’m not good at categorizing books either so I apologize for that. But here is what’s on my wish list:
The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson – another paranormal read that sounds like it takes places many years ago. Discovering family secrets, witches, religion, just sounds like an interesting read to me. I actually requested this one for my birthday since my birthday is in October. I figure it’s a perfect October read.
Of Spice and Men: A Pancake House Mystery by Sarah Fox – I’ve read several books in the pancake house mystery series. A meddling female main character, romance, beautifully described ocean town, and mouth watering food descriptions. Each book also has recipes for some of the foods described in the book which I LOVE. A nice cozy mystery to curl up with
Revenge of the Kudzu Debutantes by Cathy Holton – 3 friends coming together to deal with life circumstances. To me it seems like the southern version of the first wives club or something similar. I saw someone reading the 2nd book in this series and asked her about it. She told me it was very entertaining, funny, heartwarming, etc. So I’d like to give the first book a try first.
The Forgotten Ones by Steena Holmes – This book sounds absolutely rivoting. A thriller perhaps or maybe paranormal mystery. I’m not sure from the synopsis but either way, it sounds like my kinds of book .
I have a few more on my wishlist but these are towards the top of my list. Tell me what is on your reading wishlist.

Zoe comes from a line of clairvoyant, empathic women. Each one,
including Zoe, is deeply connected to the world around them. Zoe’s gifts are much more intense and hard
to go unnoticed by those who get close to her so she often hides what she knows to avoid being seen as
unstable. She’s always known who the love of her life was going to be, she just hadn’t met him yet. He
could live halfway across the world for all she knew. But if she saw him… or if she met him … she would
know she was meeting her soul mate. The man for her. Her man to love … Rashaad.
Rashaad only wants two things: to play his music and explore the world,
and women, while he does it. So far, he’s been managing that very well, until he is pulled to the less than
bustling, more like unassuming, city of Pittsburgh. He figures he can just get in and get out and move on,
but getting in, is more about love, and getting out, would be about leaving it. He doesn’t know how to
make that decision when it involves Zoe, his someone new. His once in a lifetime.

Gorgon’s Price Redemption of the Gorgons Book 1 by Claire Davon Genre: Paranormal Romance
Euryale will never forget the day the gods turned her into a monster. After millennia, her heart beats faster at the idea of regaining her normal form. For the feel of skin and not scales, hair and not snakes. But the price could be too high. Knowing full well the gods can’t be trusted, Euryale agrees to take on a reluctant partner to track down whoever is murdering a growing number of gods. A murderer no one cared about until the killings edged uncomfortably close to bigger and bigger pantheons. Tracking the murderers down is the price she has to pay for her newly restored form—and that of her two equally cursed sisters. Asher’s unusual gift for eerily horrific sound effects make him a highly sought-after voiceover artist. While he keeps a low profile, there has always been a ticking time bomb in the form of the bargain between his banshee mother and his father, the god Ares. It’s time to pay up—or pay with his life. As Euryale and Asher dance around their mutual mistrust, the friction ignites a fire of unexpected attraction. But love is almost as impossible as the dangerous task ahead. Because even if the murderers don’t stab them in the back, the fickle gods certainly will. **Only .99 cents!! **Goodreads* Amazon
Gorgon’s Quest Redemption of the Gorgons Book 2
Thanks to her sister Euryale’s bargain with the gods, gorgon Stheno is back in human form—but far from comfortable in her skin. As the fiercest warrior of her three sisters, she mourns her tough, beastly hide and snaky hair. The last thing anyone would call Stheno is girly —much less beautiful—but before she sets out to find her lost, mortal sister, Medusa, she googles a salon at random to cut off her annoyingly long hair. Her stylist is Marwen, a man with compelling, light-brown eyes that glow with an otherworldly light. The last of Stheno’s unruly locks barely hit the floor when the first attack comes, and in a heartbeat they’re on the run. As their passion ignites, they realize they didn’t meet by chance. They’re both entangled in a prophecy drawing them inexorably toward one fated conclusion: Medusa. But there’s a faction working just as hard to make sure it never happens. To save her sister, Stheno will have to face her fear—that once she unleashes her beast, Marwen won’t look upon her with love any more, but with horror. **Only .99 cents!! **Goodreads * Amazon
Gorgon’s Release Redemption of the Gorgons Book 3
A prophecy has been set in motion. Only love can change its course. Medusa awakens in an unfamiliar cave, catches a glimpse of her reflection in a pool—and screams. Her thick hide, claws, snake-hair, even her ability to turn anyone into a garden statue with a look, all gone. The heart-stopping beauty that caused her and her sisters’ downfall is restored. Confused, uncertain, vulnerable in her weak human body, she sets out across an unfamiliar countryside, where she meets a stranger from whom she can’t tear her once-deadly gaze. The first time Olivier lays eyes on Medusa, awareness hits him low and hard. Her penetrating gaze ignites desires deep in his psyche, and an awareness that brought him across an ocean to await the answer to his great-grandfather’s cryptic message: Now is the time. A secret in Olivier’s bloodline could help Medusa fulfill a prophecy to cause the downfall of the gods. But as they race to discover its final missing pieces, the truth becomes clear. They could be pawns in a hidden struggle for power. One wrong move, and their future could be lost like stones in the sea. **Only .99 cents!! **Goodreads * Amazon
Claire can’t remember a time when writing wasn’t part of her life. Growing up, she used to write stories with her friends. As a teenager she started out reading fantasy and science fiction, but her diet quickly changed to romance and happily-ever-after’s. A native of Massachusetts and cold weather, she left all that behind to move to the sun and fun of California, but has always lived no more than twenty miles from the ocean. In college she studied acting with a minor in creative writing. In hindsight she should have flipped course studies. Before she was published, she sold books on eBay and discovered some of her favorite authors by sampling the goods, which was the perfect solution. Claire has many book-irons in the fire, most notably her urban fantasy series, The Elementals’ Challenge series, but writes contemporary and shifter romances as well as. While she’s not a movie mogul or actor, she does work in the film industry with her office firmly situated in the 90210 district of Hollywood. Prone to break out into song, she is quick on feet and just as quick with snappy dialogue. In addition to writing she does animal rescue, reads, and goes to movies. She loves to hear from fans, so feel free to drop her a line. Website * Facebook * Twitter * Bookbub * Amazon * Goodreads
