Today, we went on a trip to the local Barnes & Noble. We got some coffees, and wandered the stacks, debated on buying a new game, checked out the Legos, and found some books we’d like to buy. Here’s some of the finds we’ve added to our ‘maybe someday’ lists.
Artillerymen Series – By Taylor Anderson
Genres: Science Fiction
It’s 1847, a ship destined for the Mexican-American war gets blown off course during a storm and ends up shipwrecked on an alternate Earth. I was drawn to this one due to the mix of cannonball soldiers and dinosaurs on the cover. After looking into this series, I was surprised to see that the author, Taylor Anderson, is actually a History professor, so these books sound really promising!
The Stardust Thief (The Sandsea Trilogy #1) – By Chelsea Abdullah
A thief who sells illegal magic, saves the life of a prince and draws the attention of his father. He blackmails her into looking for a magic lamp. This book is sort of a retelling/adaptation of One Thousand and One Nights.
Death Troopers – By Joe Schreiber
Genres: Horror, Science Fiction
A Star Destroyer found derelict meant for scavenge, but it goes horribly wrong. The ship is not empty, and everyone there is dead. Star Wars + Zombies? Sign me up.
Rebels at Sea – By Eric Jay Dolin
Genres: Nonfiction, History
A historical read about the privateer ships that helped during the Revolution. Abounding with tales of daring maneuvers and deadly encounters, Rebels at Sea presents the American Revolution as we have rarely seen it before.
Born to be Hanged – By Keith Thomson
Genres: Nonfiction, History
Discover the “fascinating and outrageously readable” account of the roguish acts of the first pirates to raid the Pacific in a crusade that ended in a sensational trial back in England.

Top pick my my husband on today’s trip. It’s basically what it sounds like: A book filled with infographs about all things Roman.
