What am I reading?

It's Monday! So it is time for What Are You Reading? Last week, I finished up a couple of books. So I found myself starting the weekend with a whole new crop of stories.

Print books

Sebastian and the Afterlife by William j. Barry
Sebastian and the AfterlifeThough fantasy isn't typically my thing, I'm enjoying Sebastian and the Afterlife. It has a Harry Potter like feel to it.
From  Sebastian awakes to find himself in a mystical realm somewhere between the living and the dead. Unspeakable dangers lurk in this realm. The Grim Reaper and his loyal agents work to maintain the law, as the threat of soul pirates (the wicked harvesters of spirit energy) has been on the rise. The infamous leader of the pirates, Axis Red, has a treacherous plan to take over the realm and set himself as the supreme authority.

While Sebastian and his new-found friends learn to cope with the wonders and perils of this strange spirit realm, Sebastian finds himself longing for his lost love Sarah, who is still alive in the mortal world. Some things are forbidden; some lines cannot be crossed. What will Sebastian risk to be close to her again? Join them on the journey of a lifetime and beyond

Vaccine-nation: Poisoning the Population, One Shot at a Time by Andrea Moritz
Vaccine-nation: Poisoning the Population, One Shot at a TimeI'm still plugging along with this book. I try to read a bit of it each day.

From  Author of a dozen books, including the bestselling Timeless Secrets of Rejuvenation and Health and Cancer is Not a Disease, Andreas Moritz takes on yet another controversial subject, this time to expose the Vaccine Myth. In Vaccine-nation, Moritz unravels the mother of all vaccine lies - that vaccines are safe and they prevent disease.

Lies Inside by Lindsey Gray
Lies InsideI have wanted to read this book since before it came out

From  How do you say goodbye to the love of your life when you are only twelve years old? Finn O’Malley and Lucy Butler had to figure out how to do just that as Finn left his home in Clarkstown, New York for Two Roads School of Music in California. Being a young talented musician, Finn thought it best for his future but wasn’t sure about leaving Lucy behind.

Now, just one semester short of graduation and a promising future at UCLA, he throws it all away to return home. This leaves his family and friends questioning why.

The Finn that has returned home is not the same boy who left. He’s broken and withdrawn. Lucy and his sister Rylan want nothing more than to bring back the Finn they know and love.

From the moment Finn reconnects with Lucy, he feels the one thing he hasn’t felt in years—hope. As Lucy starts to bring him out of his shell, Finn begins to realize what real love really is.

When his past collides with his future, how will Finn deal with the love he needs and the love he despises? Can Lucy help heal what lies inside?

Audio Book

I haven't found anything that tickled my fancy and was AVAILABLE at the digital library in audio books. I'm on the waiting list for Water like Elephants and The Peach Keeper.

That is what I'm reading this week. How about you? What's keeping you entertained this week?

  3. Ooh, Sebastian and the Afterlife was so good! I'm glad to hear you are liking it as well. :) And I haven't hear of the other two books, but Water For Elephants is fantastic, and I loved The Peach Keeper, too. Happy reading!

  5. Sebastian and the Afterlife sounds like a great read! Glad you're enjoying it!

    Here's my post :

  6. That first book, Sebastian and the Afterlife sounds interesting. I am also not much for fantasy (can't usually wrap my head around made up names) but if it's a bit like Harry Potter, in a way -- then that seems more up my alley.

    Sounds like you had a great week! Happy reading!

  7. Sebastian and the Afterlife sounds good - especially if you can compare it to Harry Potter.

  8. That vaccine book looks interesting.

  9. I chose your blog for an award. Check it out on my blog.

  10. I would have loved a book like Vacine Nation when my children were small. I really wasn't sure about all these inoculations they got.

    Your other books look interesting too.

    Happy reading!

  11. Lies Inside sounds good =] Not sure where I stand on the while vaccine issue so that book probably isn't for me-looks interesting though

  12. Enjoy your books. This coming week is my last week off before summer session. I have a few books I want to finish before school begins. Come see what they are.
