Wonder Women by Sam Maggs is $1.99! I was really taken by the adorable cover when I first saw it, and awesome women in history is definitely on brand for SBTB. There are over sixty women discussed in this book and many readers noted that they only heard of a small portion. The book does feature some illustrations, though, and I’m not sure how they’d translate digitally.
You may think you know women’s history pretty well, but have you ever heard of. . .
– Alice Ball, the chemist who developed an effective treatment for leprosy—only to have the credit taken by a man?
– Mary Sherman Morgan, the rocket scientist whose liquid fuel compounds blasted the first U.S. satellite into orbit?
– Huang Daopo, the inventor whose weaving technology revolutionized textile production in China—centuries before the cotton gin?
Smart women have always been able to achieve amazing things, even when the odds were stacked against them. In Wonder Women, author Sam Maggs tells the stories of the brilliant, brainy, and totally rad women in history who broke barriers as scientists, engineers, mathematicians, adventurers, and inventors. Also included are interviews with real-life women in STEM careers, an extensive bibliography, and a guide to women-centric science and technology organizations—all to show the many ways the geeky girls of today can help build the future.
Tonight and Forever
Tonight and Forever by Brenda Jackson is 99c! This is the first book in the Madaris Family & Friends series. Though this book was originally published in 1995, it was re-released this January. Readers loved the fact that both the hero and heroine had been married before, though I’m not sure of the characters’ ages. However, other readers thought there were a lot of things the hero and heroine had to overcome. Content warning for an abusive relationship.
Readers love the Madaris Family! Meet the sexy Madaris men and the women who tame them, only from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Jackson.

On Point by Annabeth Albert is 99c! This is the third book in the Out of Uniform series. It features a friends to lovers romance and a forced proximity element. I know many people love this series and Albert’s writing, but some readers felt the second half of the book didn’t live up to the amazing tension in the first half.
