- Bits of Cargill
on Oct. 08, 2012
Bits of Cargill is a collection of vignettes that are full of satire, humor, and otherwise making you think the ideas thru. Some of my favorites include Beauty Baggins's Horoscopes that just make you shake your head and chuckle for instances:Her Olympic Horoscopes where she thought she'd have a chance to go for walk instead of watching the games. Also her Christmas and New Year's horoscopes shared tiny bits of truth. Another favorite is Nurse Ratched that's right Nurse Ratched. Her thoughts on everyday life problems make you wonder if she's happy with her lot in life. Nurse Ratched dispensed with harsh critism ans sarcasm against her fellow man or woman. Honestly she thoughts made me chuckle and shake my head not in disgust or hate but in relief that it wasn't me she was talking too.
Like the author's works, he shows great care in weaving a story that is believable, funny, and genuine. My personal on this work is if your in the mood for satire and good shaking of your head kind at some of the nonsense people tell each other and themselves yet don't believe it themselves. I'm definitely looking for to this author's next book.

- Midnight Curse (The Witchlings #1)
on Oct. 27, 2012
Like most books about witches, this one was a coming of age tale that could have been redundant in the telling yet it was not. All of the characters were likeable,flawed, love/hate status, and friendly too. The story was skillfully woven with just the right amount of backstory without it being over done or tossed out like breadcrumbs~a piece at a time which can drive you crazy. The pacing of the story was just beautiful it wasn't rushed or force at all. It was a true page turner because you just had to know what happened next it was that good. Everything flowed together in such a way that you were anxious for more until you finished the book. Here are my thoughts:
Roxanne(Roxy) Taylor has just moved into another town to attend another new school with just her dad. Roxy's mother left when she was just four years old. She keeps hoping that this will be her last move yet she's not holding her breathe either. She meets Amber, who takes her under wing, at school and the two become friends quickly. When Roxy spys a group of good looking individuals known as The Elites. She becomes fascinated by Luke and the feeling is definitely mutual much to the dismay of one member. Luke and Roxy become close quickly. Yet Roxy knows that Luke is hiding something from her just not sure what. Every year for Roxy's birthday, she's wished to see her mother yet this year's wish is different. Luke mysteriously disappears and no one has heard from him. Roxy learns some interesting news about her mother and confronts her father with what she's learned. Roxy receives even more stunning news~her mother wants to see her and she's also a witch. Roxy has a lot to learn about her heritage, being a witch, and staying clear of the witch finders too. Where is Luke? Do the witch finders have him? Can Roxy handle the truth? Will she accept being a witch? Your answers await you in The Witchlings Midnight Curse.
I have to say that I truly despised Mr. Smith from the get go. He struck me as the type of person who finds no joy in anything and everything that he does. It's almost like he has unreasoning hate for people in general. He always appeared to be angry about everything and nothing at the same time. It was like he lived and breathed hate in all of it's forms. How does a person cope in the face of all that? Simply put you learn to ignore it and pray that the person gets over themselves soon. At least that is my take on how to deal with The Mr. Smith's of the world.

- Shadow of the Oak (A Sal Van Sleen Novella)
on Nov. 06, 2012
What can I say this book is a great mystery to be read at any age. The story, characters, and background were cleverly woven together. I just love how the main character Sal tries to pull one over on everybody whether he succeeds or fails. Personally I rooted for his best pal Billy to get ahead of Sal's scheming ways. Here are my thoughts:
Sal Van Sleen, is your typical teenage boy, who tries to get out of doing the things he's suppose too. He has his eye on a special girl who as yet to notice his attentions.

What I found fascinating about this book is that the immortal can be killed or severely damaged. The powers these immortal have are really incredible to behold:creating fireballs, read minds, control minds, and so much more. I loved watching Ally's internal struggle from the beginning to the end of the book! She really was a breathe taking character to watch grow. She is real, believable, and has insecurities just like everyone else. I wasn't too sure about James from the beginning then I watched his devotion and care for Ally truly a mind blowing experience. Vincent is really the guy you love to hate from the get go. I really want to see where this story is going. I'll be watching out for the next installment.

I love reading about wolves in any form! I love the uniqueness of wolf lore and traditions presented in the story. Elizabeth is such a wonderful relatable character that I would like to call a friend just by her nature alone. Marshall is ruggedly handsome, loyal, honest, and hopeful old soul of a man. What makes this story so special and unique is that the characters from beginning to end were so real and honest how could you not love them. I look forward to enjoying more of this author's work in the future.

- Undefeated (Complete Series books 1-4)
on Oct. 08, 2013
I never knew the things I learned while reading this book about MMA. I have to say I'm fascinated the whole world that revolves around the fighting and skill it takes to compete at this level. I loved the rich history and characters involved was completely sucked into their stories. I think my favorite story was Paul and Jack's because they each lost so much to another person making them vulnerable in ways the other characters didn't. The other characters in the book were just as good but don't hold a candle to Paul and Jack. I will definitely look forward to more stories by this author.
