Our heroes are back… kind of. From the bestselling co-authors of the Illuminae Files comes the second book in the epic series about a squad of misfits, losers, and discipline cases who just might be the galaxy’s best hope for survival.

First, the bad news: an ancient evil—you know, your standard consume-all-life-in-the-galaxy deal—is about to be unleashed. The good news? Squad 312 is standing by to save the day. They’ve just got to take care of a few small distractions first.

Like the clan of gremps who’d like to rearrange their favorite faces.

Top Ten Tuesday: Character Team-Ups

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

This week we’ve been given a freebie topic, so I thought it would be fun to create a mash-up of characters that I think would make a great team. Some of these teams would be incredibly formidable, others have been matched cause I think they’d form a solid friendship, while others would be pure chaos.

1. Kestrel and Sarene, The Winner’s Trilogy / Elantris: Two incredibly resourceful women, both with sharp minds and a keen eye for politics. This is one hell of a formidable duo. Their combined skill set is insane and I would not want to come between them. The beauty of this team-up would be the intellectual strategising you’d get. Both ladies play the game in their own way and could definitely overthrow a corrupt empire.

Top Ten Tuesday: Best of 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

2018 was not a good reading year for me. I read a total of 11 books. Not great, but numbers don’t matter when it comes to reading. While I only read a small number of books they were all enjoyable. I did a lot of re-reading this year, but these 5 books were the standouts of the year.
