Welcome to the first RecomMondaytion!
Every Monday I tell you about a new release that I’m really excited about. Since these aren’t usually deals, they aren’t yet introduced in the Friday posts.
My undying love for the Imp Series
The last part of my favourite audiobook series of all times just came out! “The Morning Star” is part 10 in the Imp series by Debra Dunbar. Whenever someone asks me about my favourite book, I answer “The Imp Series!!!111111” with this kind of excitement, haha. Sometimes I hold back when I am 100% certain the person asking can absolutely not be won over. But give me just the slightest chance, and I’ll tell you all about how amazing this series is!
So…. let me tell you how amazing this series is 😀 No, this isn’t a review, so I’ll pace myself. Plus, a lot of what’s so awesome are kind of spoilers.

Book Two in The Gift Saga: The continuation of Evanthia’s Gift …
*Read as a standalone or as part of the trilogy
In 1961, five little girls moved into a suburban neighborhood and became inseparable, lifelong friends. They called themselves the ‘Honey Hill Girls,’ named after the street on which they lived. As teenagers they shared one another’s ambitions and dreams, secrets and heartaches. Now, more than thirty years later, they remain devoted and loyal, supporting each other through triumphs and sorrows.
Evanthia’s Gift follows the life of Sophia Giannakos. In Waiting for Aegina the saga continues from the perspectives of Sophia and her friends as the story drifts back and forth in time, filling in the gaps as the women grow to adulthood.
Naive teenage ideals are later challenged by harsh realities, as each of their lives takes unexpected turns. Now nearing their fiftieth year, Sophia, Demi, Amy, Mindy and Donna stand together through life-altering obstacles while they try to regain the lighthearted optimism of their youth.
Spotlight: Evanthia’s Gift (The Gift Saga 1)
by Effie Kammenou
narrated by Emily Lawrence
All parts of The Gift Saga are now out on audio. Emily Lawrence did a wonderful narration with her warm voice and captivating intonations. Her greek accents and male voices are great. This is a truly captivating audio production of a very intriguing, unique story!
In the year 1956, Anastacia Fotopoulos finds herself pregnant and betrayed, fleeing from a bad marriage. With the love and support of her dear friends Stavros and Soula Papadakis, Ana is able to face the challenges of single motherhood. Left with emotional wounds, she resists her growing affection for Alexandros Giannakos, an old acquaintance. But his persistence and unconditional love for Ana and her child is eventually rewarded and his love is returned. In a misguided, but well-intentioned effort to protect the ones they love, both Ana and Alex keep secrets – ones that could threaten the delicate balance of their family.
The story continues in the 1970’s as Dean and Demi Papadakis, and Sophia Giannakos attempt to negotiate between two cultures. Now Greek-American teenagers, Sophia and Dean, who have shared a special connection since childhood, become lovers. Sophia is shattered when Dean rebels against the pressure his father places on him to uphold his Greek heritage and hides his feelings for her. When he pulls away from his family, culture and ultimately his love for her, Sophia is left with no choice but to find a life different from the one she’d hoped for.
EVANTHIA’S GIFT is a multigenerational love story spanning fifty years and crossing two continents, chronicling the lives that unify two families.
