New Place to Find Great Reads: Shelfjoy

You ever have trouble finding a new book to read, though there are so many places that try to help. Goodreads helps make connections with friends and make lists of books you have read, want to read, or find giveaways for new books you like, but it doesn’t help find recommendations from people who really know what they’re talking about. Here is a place that maybe able to help: shelfjoy.

Selfjoy is a more social media style of sharing books. The experts in the publishing industry are reading the newest books and sharing their views, these are the guys who know what’s in and what’s out. These are the people who can spot the trends before they are trends. So if you want a place to help you find the greatest books before reading them just feels like jumping on the bandwagon, shelfjoy maybe a great option for you! It’s easy to sign up, looking over shelves is easy, and you’ll never have to feel left out again.

I enjoy looking through all of shelfjoy’s different shelves and options; no matter what kind of books you love most, you’ll find experts on them. They have buy links, expert reviews, and everyday reviews to help you find the best read for you. You’ll actually enjoy working with online shelves.

Rosinanti by Kevin J. Kessler

A beautiful epic fantasy tale for the fantasy lover squeal.

yketaebookfinal-4-400x600_origBanished. Cast out. Powerless. Y’keta is exiled to the small village of Esquialt as his father’s punishment for his rebellious spirit. Village tradition gives him one Cycle, from spring to spring, to earn the right to stay. 

The villagers have a legend about mighty beings called the Waki’tani, mythical lords of the wind and lightning who can shapeshift into human form. Y’keta knows the truth behind these stories. Could there be more to them than just tales shared around the campfire? 

If Y’keta reveals what he knows to the villagers, it will tear their history and traditions apart…but sharing his secrets may be their only hope for survival when Esquialt is threatened by the brutal, ferociously destructive Utlaak. 

Loosely based on the Thunderbird of North American legend, Y’keta is an epic fantasy set in an ancient world where legends walk and the Sky Road offers a way to the stars.

Rosinanti by Kevin J. Kessler

A beautiful epic fantasy tale for the fantasy lover squeal.

rosinanti-book-1-399x600_orig

The Rosinanti Dragons are no more. Since their extinction nearly one thousand years ago these primal powerhouses have fallen into the obscurity of history’s forgotten lore. In that time, humans have come to dominate the world of Terra, peacefully ignorant to one horrifying truth: ancient evil stirs around them, waiting to reclaim its lost world.
For Valentean Burai, animus warrior of the kingdom of Kackritta, the details surrounding humanity’s victory over the Rosinanti are more than just a history lesson. The long-buried mysteries of this archaic conflict may hold the answers that he has so desperately sought regarding his own past.
As the awful truth of the Rosinanti’s supposed demise comes to light, Valentean must stand together with Seraphina, a magically gifted princess, to embark upon a mission to maintain order and light throughout Terra. Only together can these two lifelong friends face down the resurgence of the Rosinanti legacy, and combat the greatest threat their world has ever known.

Punked by Lex Grootelaar

A great coming of age story that is real and fresh.

punk_origShort and entertaining, “Punk” pushes both the rules of writing and the dominant ideas and expectations of our society. Thrown into the world of punk rock in the early 1990s, this novel follows the intertwining lives of a wandering reject and the people he meets as he learns of his fathers’ unexpected death. It explores themes of social structure and religious indifference through the eyes of this disenfranchised man living from one high to the next. The story takes place over a few hot summer days in Edmonton, Alberta.

This coming-of-age story, although set in the 90’s, is still very relevant to today. It explores a quest for God without religion. Written with bursts of stream-of-consciousness and first-person narrative, “Punk” is simultaneously an urban existential fiction and a mystery novel.
