PREDICTING YOUR NEXT GREAT READ

“13 Minutes” by Sarah Pinborough

I was confused at first as to why this one was a Netgalley read when it says it doesn’t release until October but that there were so many reviews already on here. It looks like it has been changed a bit and is being re-released. It was first published February 18th, 2016 and from what I can gather Netflix is making it into an original movie. This was interesting to […]

Duchess the Dragon!

The only requirement is that you must (choose) a pet you have never owned.   Duchess is majestic. Her wings shimmer an incandescent blue/gray in the dawn light. Reaching out toward her, she folds her wings in as she lands next to me. Gently nuzzling my hand, loudly chomping away at whatever plants she has managed to find, she lets out a sigh of contentment. “Oh Duchess. Did you have […]

A Recipe & A Simile

The morning sun tastes like: Honey mingled into your morning tea. Her voice smelled like: Chocolate. Dark, seductive, and smooth. The music sounded heavy as: A cat seated firmly upon your chest. The color green feels like: The ridges of a crispy potato chip fresh from the oven. The color red tastes like: Victory. Midnight rain is bitter as: Tea that has steeped far too long. The wind looks as ___________ as: […]

“Raising Resilience” by: Christopher Willard

The subtitle “The Wisdom and Science of Happy Families and Thriving Children” is definitely appropriate! Filled with TONS of links between Psychology and Buddhism, this book was a must read for me. I do not have kids, I wanted to read this for the sole purpose of those two links. The approach of speaking to children as children was well explained as far as their development and their mode of […]

Surrealism Exercise, Or Thinking Outside The Box.

Running Hands Fountain Pen After a long day of running, she discovered that her hands had grown a fountain pen.   Now Maria had barely even had time to stop to think let alone process what had just happened. Each of her hands had its own fountain pen growing out from her index fingers. She had been concentrating rather hard on how badly she needed to begin her bullet journal for […]

August Wrap Up!

I was able to knock out 8 books this month which was a low number for me, but I’m not going to worry about it because I was hitting a reading slump. I checked out a lot of books from the library and started to read many but had to stop after a few pages or chapters since they were not holding my attention. After #Booktubeathon I think I was a […]

“Sleep Like a Baby” (Aurora Teagarden #10) by: Charlaine Harris

Oh Charlaine Harris. I love her books. I have read ALL of her series. From the very first to this final installment in the Aurora series, why oh why does she continue to overuse the word “little”? I have ranted about this in previous reviews of her previous works. I had to take a deep breath on this one as I read and before I began this review. Real Talk […]

Road Trip to Missouri!

Hubby and I decided to take a three day road trip to Missouri so we could see the eclipse in 100% totality clearly. We filled up our gas tank and drove down on Saturday, listening to music and a couple podcasts. After another gas station stop (fuel both for us and our car), we made the rest of the drive and got checked into our hotel. Beyond the main reason […]

“Lolas’ House: Filipino Women Living with War” by: M. Evelina Galang

The author of this took years to gather her research and to interview 16 Lolas/”Comfort Women”. The name “Comfort Women” is a subterfuge-y type of misnomer because there was nothing “comforting” about what they went through. During World War II the Japanese soldiers came into their homes, injured and or brutally murdered their fathers, mothers, siblings, husbands, and kidnapped these women to their camps. The suffering they endured was nothing […]

“The Hate U Give” by: Angie Thomas

There are some books that instantly grab you and pull you in. This was one of those books. I listened to the audio version of this book and had to pause it multiple times because my heart was heavy and I felt tears beginning. At first, when #BlackLivesMatter movement began, I didn’t understand it. All lives should matter right? But then I researched more into it and learned what it […]
