Feed the Imagination

(And Open the mind)

Feed the Mind

(And Set the Imagination Free)

A first-in-series that blends classic Western, high powered-intrigue, and just enough romance to created the perfect Cozy Sci-fi.

This book provided an entire set of lenses through which to view a multitude of cultures. Highly recommended reading.

The first of the Wayfarer's series, and a refreshing look at how a future in space might play out, and our place in it. Enjoyable from the first page to the last.

A fantastic resource, and I can say that the tensions in our household have diminished significantly since the family became fans of Brené (we all watched her Netflix talk, also recommended).

The first book of Lori Drake's newest series was unputdownable. Featuring a sassy protagonist with emotional scars and chutzpah to spare. A clever mystery that's also loads of fun.

Adam Savage goes beyond the myths and into the building of a life. Fun, impactful, educational, and chock full of good advice for everyone, no matter what kind of "Making" they enjoy.

I loved this book, and am particularly fond of Janet Watson. I also maybe had too much fun playing "I get that reference" as I read the book.

A journey into the heart of Hygge country, that had my daughter and I laughing out loud quite often.

This is the first book of Sonya Bateman's Deathspeaker Codex, and introduces us to Gideon Black, an eminently relatable fellow who just happens to talk to dead people.

More from Helen Russell, and only available in paperback, but this is the book that really kicked off a year of learning in our house, and led to a number of other books you'll see on this list. Plus there's a lot of laughs included in Helen's journey through work, fitness, home, relationships, and more.

First of the Grant Wolves series and the rare Non-paranormal romance about shifters*. There are hearts involved, but there's more about family, friendship, and consequences.

*Not that I don't enjoy romance, but as an eclectic reader I appreciate a shift in tropes. **
**See what I did there? 

I've adopted several teeny tiny habits and am quite pleased with the results.

Pratchett's Discworld novels are all a joy and a wonder, but it was Men at Arms that first got me invested in the life of Sam Vimes and the rest of the Watch, and really, as much as I appreciate Death and Moist and Tiffany Aching, it's always been the Watch for me.

Think Northern Exposure meets whodunnit, with a hint of Hemingway/London in the prose. There are a couple-three of the patented NR sex scenes, but for the non-romance readers, they are just a small part of a very enjoyable whole.
