Top Ten Of The Most Unique Books I’ve Read

Alright, I’ve never done one of these Top Ten Tuesday posts from The Broke and the Bookish, but I figured this week would be a nice lead-in to get started. No promises that I’ll keep it up every week, but then again, you never know. 😉

These are in no particular order. In fact, I have no idea what’s going to end up on this list, so let’s hop on over to my Goodreads list and see what I’ve got buried there.

1. THE AXE AND THE THRONE

This book is killing me. Dark, gritty, strong prose, really right up my alley. What’s unique is that there’s at least 7 different POVs in the first 15% of the book.

I entered #PitchWars, got a request, but didn’t make it into the final round. Best thing that ever happened...

#RevMyBio – K. J. Harrowick

Hi there 🙂

Let’s talk about Dragons. Because, why not? But first, here’s a little bit about who I am:

I’m a novel writer from the Pacific Northwest. Fantasy and Science-Fiction are my bread and butter. Wait… let me rephrase that. ADULT Fantasy and Science-Fiction are my woobie. While I’ve been known to read everything from tech articles to Jane Austin, my true passion is in dark, gritty stories exploring the boundaries of morality and the human psyche.

So, needless to say, I write adult books – sex, magic, swords & spaceships. My characters tend to be older, emotionally (and sometimes physically) tormented, with lives that they’ve already lived, and destroyed. These stories are about second chances, sometimes even third and fourth...
