Tips for Tuesday - Books: The Mortal Instruments. My Name is Venus Black and Leo Fender the Quiet Giant Heard Round the World

We may have been given some of the below books for free for review purposes. This post may also contain affliate links. If you click on a link and make a purchase, we will be compensated.
Any and all opinions expresed here are our own.

Me - Today I am recommending The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. The Mortal Instruments is a really captivating fantasy series. It follows a girl named Clary who discovers that she is a shadowhunter and is swept into a whole new world that she hadn't even known existed. It has romance, action, and many surprising twists and turns that will take even the most skilled predictors by surprise. I would highly recommend this series to anyone with a taste for adventure.*

Mom - Today I am recommending two books.

The first book I am recommending today is the fiction book, My Name is Venus Black by Heather Lloyd.  When Venus is convicted and sent to jail for a  serious crime which she committed, her younger brother who is autistic disappears. When she gets out of jail, she wants to start a new life as a completely different person and find out what happened to her brother. This is a really touching book that will grip you by the heartstrings and won't let go from start to finish. While, of course, not every character in the book is likable,  there are so many wonderful beautiful really good at heart characters in this book that reading it will reaffirm your faith in humanity.

The second book is Leo Fender The Quiet Giant Heard Around the World by Phyllis Fender and Randall Bell. This is the true story of the man who revolutionized music with his guitars. Although at times, the author seems a little too close to her subject, this is a fascinating book about a man who could neither read nor play music but was so crucial to the history of music. Anyone who plays music, loves music or is interested in the history of music will enjoy this informative book.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.
