All the Lives We Never Lived by Anuradha Roy ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

First chapter, first paragraph
When I saw All the Lives We Never Lived at NetGalley, I was drawn to it for a few reasons. 1. It was set in India and I can't recall ever reading a book set in India. 2. The author is Indian and I've been trying to read more international literature. 3. It mentioned WWII in the description and I haven't read any WWII novels set outside of Europe and the U.S. Basically I wanted to read it because it was different than what I normally read.

The Surgeon by John Pence ~ a Review #MondayBlogs

by MK French

In a post-apocalyptic world, Dr. Jenny Hanover often trades her skills as a doctor and surgeon for a place to stay, meals and tools. With the way that the world is, she is just as skilled with a sword as a scalpel and prefers to be on the move at all times. She wants to stay away from the violence in the eastern seaboard of the US, and would rather take off.

I don't read many romance novels but there are times in my life that they are the perfect kind of books to read.  I have reviews of two new romance novels that I read this month that I really enjoyed.

Restricted Fantasies by Kevin Kneupper ~ a Review

by MK French

This collection of short stories explores the blurred lines between identity and reality when the virtual world is concerned. There is a futuristic child protective services worker having to dive into an unpleasant simulation where a man is raising his two children in a Neo-Nazi realm against custody agreements. Rumspringa is now in a virtual world for the Amish. The cheat code for the universe is used with disastrous consequences. There are those who are willing to push themselves with drugs in order to earn a few minutes of virtual gaming time. Communicating with alien cultures is an information diver's dream, but doesn't go according to plan. A virtual prison can't be escaped, especially if the warden is a computer program without humanity.

Time's Convert by Deborah Harkness ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

How it begins
Time's Convert is a good as I expected it to be. I fell in love with the All Souls Trilogy back in 2012 when I read A Discovery of Witches. Since the conclusion of that series I've wanted more as have all the fans. There is now a television show (it airs in the US in 2019 and has already been renewed for seasons 2 and 3). But really I wanted more books and so I was excited about Time Convert's which is focused on Marcus and Phoebe, two characters from the All Souls Trilogy.

This is a fun series. I hope for many more books based in this great universe McShane has created.
