    Mable Wilkinson is close to getting everything she ever wanted. She has a home in a facility in New York, a job extracting parasitic insects, and she’s even made some friends. If she can keep up this pace for a few years, she’ll earn a lifetime of security for herself—and for Hadley.

    But that doesn’t mean her job is easy. Each time she begins to discover something about the bugs, they strike again, wreaking havoc on the world. Researchers are dying with increasing frequency, and Mable is powerless to stop it.

    As the mounting bug attacks threaten to destroy humanity, Mable realizes she’s out of time. Her team has only days to find a solution before the human race loses its homeworld—if the bugs don’t infect them first.

    Review: The Killing Jar

    Original Title: The Killing Jar
    Author: RS McCoy
    Edition: Paperback, 400 pages
    Published: June 28th, 2016 by RS McCoy
    Characters: Mable Wilkinson, Silas Arrenstein
    Rating: 4/5
    Synopsis from Goodreads:

    Earth is dying, circling the drain on life support. The future of the human race depends on space exploration, but they’re running out of time. Parasitic insects are systematically killing the best scientific minds but no one knows why.

    Mable Wilkinson is the last hope to figure it out, she just doesn’t know it yet. For years, her resourcefulness, intelligence, and penchant for problem-solving have put her at the top of a very short list of researchers, only she doesn’t want to be part of it.

    Cast out at sixteen, Mable wrote off the problems of the world long ago. Now, her focus is on Hadley, her adopted little sister, and teaching her to survive in the cut-throat underground. Instead, both Mable and Hadley fall into the hands of the program’s recruiter, Silas Arrenstein, and he’s determined to have one of them. Mable can join up with the man and program who killed her brother, or she can leave Hadley to the same fate.

    The Monday Musts #1

    I made a calendar to schedule blog posts a long time ago and never implemented it. I’m really going to start trying as of today. I want to blog at least 5 days per week and start doing more than just reviews and the occasional tags. I also want to try to do more discussions, guest posts, interviews, etc. so if you are interested in any of the aforementioned feel free to email me at [email protected]!

    As part of my new schedules, I will start doing The Monday Musts, which I recently discovered thanks to Lila at The Bookkeeper’s Secret. The Monday Musts is a weekly meme hosted by Jessica at Lovin’ Los Libros in which we talk about our must reads, must listens, and must sees of the week!

    Must Read
    R.S. McCoy emailed me and asked me to review her novel, The Killing Jar, which comes out tomorrow, June 28th! To be honest, you never know what you’re going to get when indie authors ask you to review but I’m still a fairly new blogger so it’s not like Scholastic is sending me large packages daily, and the premise sounded pretty interesting. (Check out my cover reveal post for the full synopsis.)

    Well, I’m glad I accepted because this book is actually AMAZING! I love McCoy’s writing style. It’s entertaining and descriptive, but it’s also to the point (if that makes any sense). I’m already in love with many of the characters and the story is just really riveting. I can’t say enough good things about it. So check it out on Goodreads, pre-order it on Amazon, etc. It’s REALLY good, and I hope I get invited to read and review more of her novels.
