I’ve been on a summer reading roll this year! I’m up to 41 books for the year, 25 of which I’ve read since June. I know that may not seem like a lot to people who knock out a book or two a day but considering I work 10 hours a day, it’s pretty good, right? My goal is to read 52 books this year. Lately, I’ve been having a hard time deciding what I want to read next. I get in certain moods, so even though I have a good 200 unread books on my Kindle, they’re in so many genres that only a few fit whatever mood I’m in. That’s one of the reasons I love anthologies like Cursed.  I get a bunch of books with different plots, characters and even genres but that all tie into one overall common theme.

Cursed brings together demon hunters, angels, shapeshifters and other fabulous beasties in one wonderfully priced collection (can’t beat $0.99!). Check it out, then grab it on Amazon!
