Into the Drowning Deep RECOMMENDED: Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant is $2.99! This is a Kindle Daily Deal and it’s being price-matched. Elyse & I really enjoyed this horror/sci-fi novel. We jointly reviewed the book and ultimately decided on a B. We loved the cast of characters, but found the ending anticlimactic. New York Times bestselling author Mira Grant, author of the renowned Newsflesh series, returns with a novel that takes us to a new world of ancient mysteries and mythological dangers come to life.  Seven years ago, the Atargatis set off on a voyage to the Mariana Trench to film a “mockumentary” bringing to life ancient sea creatures of legend. It was lost at sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others have called it a maritime tragedy. Now, a new crew has been assembled. But this time they’re not out to entertain.

D+ Cowboy Wolf Trouble by Kait Ballenger January 1, 2020 · Sourcebooks Casablanca I read Cowboy Wolf Trouble because I rarely read cowboy or shifter romances, and I was in the mood for something different. Well, I got something different, all right. Many of the things I disliked about this book will be pure catnip to other readers, but a few things were straight up problematic. However, I can’t deny that I zipped right through this book wondering what was going to happen next. Forgive my frequent use of bullet points here as there’s just SO MUCH to unpack in this story which involves humans, multiple kinds of shifters, and not one but two different kinds of vampires. The basic plot is that Naomi, a rancher and biologist, accidentally traps Wes, a wolf shifter. In doing so, she becomes embroiled in a complicated history of feuds between vampires and various shifter clans. Shifters and Humans are forbidden to have romances, but Naomi and Wes have immediate pants feelings for each other, and they two proceed to have passionate sex on every possible surface while battling the vampires and rival packs who want to take over her ranch.

We have a very specific Rec League from Sarah Drew, that kind of stumped us: Twins. Specifically (if possible) the overlooked twin winning through. I’m Scottish and therefore really keen on underdogs. Twins preferred, siblings if there is real rivalry (at least on one side). Specific, much? Sarah: So, like Jacob Have I Loved with a More Better ending? Maya: SHIT way to take me back to my growing up in Maryland youth. Sarah: Sorry! Maya: No, it’s good, I just have thought about that book in like 25 years. Carrie: I was OBSESSED by it when I was a kid. A | BN | K | AB Sarah: It made me MAD. Maya: Yeah, I don’t think I ever got over her bestie marrying her sister. Carrie: I’m still pissed at that shitty grandma. Sarah: I am pestering my tired brain for underdog twin books. Carrie: Didn’t Sweet Valley High have twins? Maya: All I’ve got is Alanna. ( A | BN | K | G | AB ) Tara: SVH sure did. Sarah: It did but the SVH twins were…well no maybe that fits. A | BN | K | AB Elizabeth was kind of an underdog. And also…
