So Daylight Saving Time happened. Yeah, we got an extra hour of sleep for that one night—but now the days are so short that we’re getting even less Vitamin D than we did before because of our sedentary lifestyles. But let’s face it, we’d probably be at home reading anyway. Therefore…
Check out Bookstr’s Three to Read, the three books we’ve picked for you to read this week!
Our Hot Pick
Two men, one driven to the edge of sanity by heart-breaking losses, the other craving revenge, conspire to reshape America and bring her population to their knees.
When young men on the Warm Springs Reservation in Central Oregon are stricken with an unidentified disease that leaves them sterile, Peter Savage is called to aid in the investigation.
With the inquiry gaining momentum, Peter is kidnapped by hardened mercenaries. In the remote high desert of Oregon, Peter finds himself face to face with a demon from his past-an adversary who has seemingly risen from the grave.
As the minutes count down to a biological holocaust, Peter presents the only chance to save an unwitting civilian population. With his trusted canine companion Diesel by his side, along with a former-assassin-turned-ally, Peter must gamble far more than his own life… and the odds have never been so long…

In this mesmerizing sequel to the New York Times bestselling Girls of Paper and Fire, Lei and Wren have escaped their oppressive lives in the Hidden Palace, but soon learn that freedom comes with a terrible cost.
Lei, the naive country girl who became a royal courtesan, is now known as the Moonchosen, the commoner who managed to do what no one else could. But slaying the cruel Demon King wasn’t the end of the plan—it’s just the beginning. Now Lei and her warrior love Wren must travel the kingdom to gain support from the far-flung rebel clans. The journey is made even more treacherous thanks to a heavy bounty on Lei’s head, as well as insidious doubts that threaten to tear Lei and Wren apart from within.
Meanwhile, an evil plot to eliminate the rebel uprising is taking shape, fueled by dark magic and vengeance. Will Lei succeed in her quest to overthrow the monarchy and protect her love for Wren, or will she fall victim to the sinister magic that seeks to destroy her?
The sequel to the acclaimed New York Times bestselling Girls of Paper and Fire has arrived. Warrior couple Lei and Wren are keeping both their love and the rebellion strong after their win against the Demon King. Author Natasha Ngan delivers another epic addition to the fantasy genre with protagonist Lei, whose journey from cruel beginnings to victorious warrior will inspire and awe. James Patterson’s stamp of approval doesn’t hurt either.
Our Dark Horse
Angel walks the line between two worlds; a vampire cursed with a soul, he’s spent centuries battling back the forces that would destroy humanity, in an attempt to redeem himself for the crimes committed by the monster he was when he was first turned. But now, on the trail of the most recent demonic uprising, he realizes that the redemption he seeks can only come with a price.
Torn between his self-sworn mission to protect humanity and his desire to rid himself of his curse, he stumbles across the legend of a demon, a trickster who claims they can cure vampirisim and restore his humanity for a small cost: a sacrifice…a Slayer.
If it’s too difficult leaving the Halloween spirit behind, then diving back into the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is just what you need. Before Twilight forever shook the vampire genre world, there was the epic Buffy spinoff, Angel, whose titular character reigns as the original tortured vampire stud. Behold the graphic novel expansion written by comics superstar Bryan Edward Hill and brought to life (or afterlife I guess) with the art of Gleb Melnikov. Grab your coffee, grab this graphic novel, and take a trip down memory lane with the adventures of Angel.
