My Current Read and TBR

(This will probably be a long post)

So my TBR list is pretty long and I thought I might share it with the world.

Currently Reading: Outlander (Cross Stitch)
Author: Diana Gabaldon
Publisher: Arrow Books
Series: Outlander, Book One
Genre: Fiction, Historical Fiction
9780553393699
Summary:
In 1945, Claire Randall is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon in Scotland. She walks through a stone circle in the Highlands, and finds herself in a violent skirmish taking place in 1743. Suddenly she is a Sassenach, an outlander, in a country ravaged by war and by clan feuds.
Marooned amid the passion and violence, the superstition, the shifting allegiances and the fervent loyalties, Claire is in danger from Jacobites and Redcoats – and from the shock of her own desire for Jamie Fraser, a gallant and courageous young Scots warrior.
Jamie shows her a passion so fierce and a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire, and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Once upon a time, an angel and a devil pressed their hands together and started the apocalypse.
Common enemy, common cause.
When Jael’s brutal seraph army trespasses into the human world, the unthinkable becomes essential, and Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people.
And, perhaps, for themselves.
But there are bigger threats than Jael in the offing. A vicious queen is hunting Akiva and, in the skies of Eretz… something is happening. Massive stains are spreading like bruises from horizon to horizon; the great winged stormhunters are gathering as if summoned, ceaselessly circling, and a deep sense of wrong pervades the world.
What power can bruise the sky?
From the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond, humans, chimaera and seraphim alike will fight, strive, love and die in an epic theatre that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.
At the very barriers of space and time, what do gods and monsters dream of? And does anything else matter?
