Looking for Books to Read?


Sal and Gabi Break the Universe


   

So I'm always looking for a good read.  I tried a sample of this book, bought the book, finished it in one night, bought the sequel and finished it in the same night.

I'm currently re-reading Sal and Gabi Break the Universe, just three days after I finished the second book.

I found it a lot of fun. I love that our heroes are Hispanic, that they go to an art school, that there's Spanish in the text (but if you don't speak Spanish, don't worry because Gabi doesn't so Sal translates for her).

I love the magic in the book, I love the magic in the characters.  I love that there's science fiction, and there's science fiction.

I hope you'll enjoy it, too!
 

Sal and Gabi Fix the Universe



The sequel! I loved the first book so much when I finished it, I immediately went to see if their was a sequel. And there was. And read it. (And there's hints that there may be more book after!)  

Other Books I recently read and recommend





Military Science Fiction (adult)


I've enjoyed David Weber's books for many, many years.

I've recently enjoyed the new addition to the Honorverse, the Call to... books.

The first one is:

 

There are three in the series so far and I'm sure there'll be more to come!

Reference Material


As an author, I find myself reading a lot of non-fiction, particularly military history.




This is a very compelling read describing not just the Great Influenza but also the great good luck the United States had in developing a modern medical staff before this hit.




This is one of two World War One books I've read recently. I found it very approachable.
 
But it also made absolutely clear to me that this war was totally unnecessary, that all the combatant societies were duped into it and that every last general on all sides should have been shot for their insane willingness to wantonly sacrifice tens of thousands of lives for nothing.

It also made it clear that Winston Churchill was perhaps the brightest light in all the capitals of the world at that time.




I read this first and it's a good book on the subject, recommended. 
It also makes clear Churchill's outsized impact on the war.
