The View From Monday - December 26, 2016

Happy last Monday in 2016. This has been quite the year in so many ways. As usual I have not read as many books as I'd like to read. I suppose I could give up work and sleeping to read more, but that's just not practical or possible. I have my favorite reads of course but without reading hundreds of books I'm not going to make a best of list. I may tell you about my 2016 favorite reads early next year... which is only 5 days away. Tell me about your favorite reads in the comments if you'd like.

There are no debuts this week (or during December for that matter), but there are books from formerly featured DAC Authors:

The Face of the Unknown (Star Trek: The Original Series) by Christopher L. Bennett;

Faithful (Birth of Saints 2) by Michelle Hauck is out in Mass Market Paperback;

Bell, Book & Candlemas (A Wiccan Wheel Mystery 2) by Jennifer David Hesse;

The City of Ice (Gates of the World 2) by K. M. McKinley;

The Bone Cave (Bone Magic 3) by Sarah Remy is our in Mass Market Paperback;


Dreams of the Eaten (Children of the Drought 3) by Arianne 'Tex' Thompson.

Clicking on a novel's cover will take you to its Amazon page.
