Every time I look at The Third Instinct by Kent Lester, I think, “Now, why did I take this one again?” And then I read the description and it’s so obvious why. Compared to Dan Smith, breakneck speed, secret societies – this has so many things that I love. I’ve just started it, so I’m not sure how much I like it yet but it’s promising.

Genre: Political / Technothriller

Pages: 361 pages

Publisher: Forge Books

Publication Date: December 6, 2022

A high-octane thriller that sets Dan Clifford against ancient secret societies vying for power in the modern world; in the vein of Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon series. In The Third Instinct, author Kent Lester brings his signature blend of cutting-edge science, history, and pulse-pounding action to the next Dan Clifford adventure. A shadowy group of bio-hackers called the Firemen threaten to worsen the Covid pandemic by releasing an even more lethal version of the pathogen. But what drives the Firemen and how do their motivations relate to the wealth of the Roman Empire and to the third basic human instinct? The answers may lie with prediction scientist Dan Clifford. Unemployed and struggling with two years of pandemic isolation, he is rebuilding both his career and personal life. His plans to propose to his adrenaline-junkie girlfriend, Rachel Sullivan, are interrupted by the FBI. Dan must connect a maze of clues from the shadowy underworld of Savannah’s hacker community, to the ancient powerbrokers of Rome and in doing so, uncover a hidden agenda of big Pharma and a two-thousand-year-old battle for control of public opinion.

I’m reading The Urban Boys for a The Write Reads blog tour. I love superhero stories and this one sounds like quite the action-packed adventure.

So, I was looking through Amazon at some holiday paperback books, and when I do that I put a bunch in my cart that look interesting then I go to the cart and look at them again and decide which I want. Well, when I got to Merry Little Meet Cute, I didn’t notice that Amazon had switched me to the Kindle version. I pressed the button to put it in my cart but since it is the digital version, I bought it instead. 🤦🏻‍♀️. I know I can return it, but I had been invited to buddy read and decided that meant that I wanted to join.

  • Genre: Holiday Fiction
  • Pages: 425 pages
  • Publisher: Avon
  • Publication Date: September 22, 2022
Cowritten by #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Murphy and USA Today bestselling author Sierra Simone—a steamy plus-size holiday rom-com about an adult film star who is semi-accidentally cast as a lead in a family-friendly Christmas movie, and the former bad-boy pop star she falls in love with. Bee Hobbes (aka Bianca Von Honey) has a successful career as a plus-size adult film star. With a huge following and two supportive moms, Bee couldn’t ask for more. But when Bee’s favorite producer casts her to star in a Christmas movie he’s making for the squeaky-clean Hope Channel, Bee’s career is about to take a more family-friendly direction. Forced to keep her work as Bianca under wraps, Bee quickly learns this is a task a lot easier said than done. Though it all becomes worthwhilewhen she discovers her co-star is none other than childhood crush Nolan Shaw, an ex-boy band member in desperate need of career rehab. Nolan’s promised his bulldog manager to keep it zipped up on set, and he will if it means he’ll be able to provide a more stable living situation for his sister and mom. But things heat up quickly in Christmas Notch, Vermont, when Nolan recognizes his new co-star from her ClosedDoors account (oh yeah, he’s a member). Now Bee and Nolan are sneaking off for quickies on set, keeping their new relationship a secret from the Hope Channel’s execs. Things only get trickier when the reporter who torpedoed Nolan’s singing career comes snooping around—and takes an instant interest in mysterious newcomer Bee. And if Bee and Nolan can’t keep their off-camera romance behind the scenes, then this merry little meet cute might end up on the cutting room floor.

  5. I can see why you’d ask yourself why you chose The Third Instinct, and then reading the blurb, it’s obvious. A great blurb will to that! I’m reading Are We Monsters? by Rollin Miller and it’s great. He’s a new-to-me indie author and it’s one of those books that should be a movie. 🙂 Happy Reading!
