By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there avid readers! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and day. So much to do and so little time for everything that I need to do. But as a reader, I must read, so check out this latest reading list and see where it takes me. I’m already halfway through Blood of the Cosmos, but as it’s a 600+ page book, it’s going to take me a little bit to read with everything else going on in my life. But here’s what’s following it! Happy reading!

Weekly Reading List #81


By Cynthia Ayala

Let’s try this again. Hello there avid readers! I am hailing you from new laptop 2.0. Here’s hoping this one will work long enough for me to edit my novel and do what I like to do most: write. But in the meantime, here’s my weekly reading list, because let’s face it, you can’t be an author if you don’t read, and boy, do I read.

Weekly Reading List #80


By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there avid readers. I hope that everyone is doing well. Recently my kitten past away this week so it’s been a hard few days. I miss going to sleep at night without him walking all over me. He was 18, so not really a kitten, and at least I had so much time with him, but it hurts, having to let him go. But I’m doing okay, reading at night seems to help me sleep without him. It’s something at least.

Anyway, check out my reading list and see what I’ve got on my to-read list.

Weekly Reading List #79


By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there avid readers! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Not much time for reading lately. Or writing. It’s so hard to find time. I’ve set aside time in my calendar for writing and editing and all my files FINALLY seemed to have synced up so I can FINALLY continue editing my book and preview the first five chapters up for readers to read. So much to do before my August 30th pub date. Here’s hoping I won’t have to move it back. Wish me luck!

Anyway, all work and no play is never fun so check out these titles and hand me some reprieve from my workaholic schedule.

Hey, there avid readers! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. I’m still trying to catch up on my reading and my writing, but, more importantly, my book which is slated for publication this coming August. It’s approaching fast, especially if I want to send out advanced copies in May-June. Man do I need more time. But all work and no play is never fun and this week I have been enjoying some 10th Kingdom! Woo!

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Check out these titles and see if they tickle your fancy or should be added to your To-Read list.
