Anyone that knows me, knows that I keep adding to my TBR and buying more books that I don’t have time for let alone the shelf space. Call it an affliction but I prefer to call it love… the smell, the look and the pleasure I get from new books is something amazing. So what did I add to my goodreads TBR shelf this week? Lets take a look.

The Kaiju Preservation Society by John Scalzi
The Kaiju Preservation Society by John Scalzi is a thrilling, fast-paced adventure set on an alternate Earth – perfect for fans of Adrian Tchaikovsky and Michel Crichton’s Jurassic Park.
They’re big, they’re bad and they’re about to become extinct . . .
Jamie’s dream was to hit the big time at a New York tech start-up. Jamie’s reality was a humiliating lay-off, then a lowwage job as a takeaway delivery driver. During a pandemic too. Things look beyond grim, until a chance delivery to an old acquaintance. Tom has an urgent vacancy on his team: the pay is great and Jamie has debts – it’s a no-brainer choice. Yet, once again, reality fails to match expectations. Only this time it could be fatal.
It seems Tom’s ‘animal rights organization’ is way more than it appears. The animals aren’t even on Earth – or not our Earth, anyway. In an alternate dimension, massive dinosaur-like creatures roam a tropical, human-free world. And although Kaiju are their universe’s largest and most dangerous animal, they need support to survive.
Tom’s ‘Kaiju Preservation Society’ wants to help. However, others want to profit. Unless they’re stopped, the walls between our worlds could fall – and the consequences would be devastating.

We both suffer from the same affliction – and long may that last, I say! I aways love reading your blog, Yvonne, and discovering new books to add to my burgeoning TBR pile.
This is a very exciting TBR pile… I need to bring a little more excitement and suspense into my reading list (thank you). I usually have a hard time focusing on one book at a time, but I am proud to say I recently finished a historical fantasy series that I really enjoyed “The Forerunner” by Jay Veloso Batista (https://www.jayvelosobatista.com/). I really liked the show Vikings that was on TV, and this is like a more elaborate and in-depth version of it. It is a three-book grand Viking adventure series that includes elements of Norse mythology and the supernatural. Something that really fascinated me was the “vardoger” curse. It is essentially someone’s own personal poltergeist, bound to them. I was educated, entertained and I found a new author I really enjoy. Hope you and your readers will check it out! Happy Reading
