It's January, our New Year's resolutions are fresh on our minds, and for a lot of people, those resolutions include reading more in 2021.

Melissa Dalton Martinez, Host & Reviewer for The Book Break, joined us with three book recommendations to help us tackle those goals!

Her first book recommendation is "Secret Sisters" from the "Ginnie West Adventure" series. The book follows two girls who are best friends and decide they should be sisters and they hatch a plan to get what they want. Melissa says young readers who love stories of friendship, adventure, and horses will love this book. And, with four books in the series, they'll be coming back to make reading a lasting habit.

The second book recommendation is for any adult reader who enjoys adventure, puzzles, and mysteries along the lines of "Indiana Jones". "The Course of Fate" series by Steve Dunn Hanson opens with the book "Find". It follows an anthropologist named Nathan Hill. He is recruited for a mission to uncover a set of ancient manuscripts that slowly begins to reveal a myriad of ancient secrets involving everything from the Mayans to Mormons.

Melissa's third book recommendation is "Instant Cooking with Six Sisters' Stuff: A Fast, Easy and Delicious Way to Feed Your Family". She says this cookbook is for anyone who made a New Year's resolution to cook more or to learn how to cook! It focuses mainly on how to make fast, easy, and delicious meals using a multi-cooker like an Instant Pot.

Melissa is doing a giveaway contest for the first book in the "Ginnie West Adventure" and "The Course of Fate" series, along with "Instant Cooking with Six Sisters' Stuff".
