  • 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.

This is a brand new author for me and great start to a series of books that are definitely fast reads. I found that I could really relate to Tahima on a personal level thru all of her struggles mentally and emotionally. The range of emotion was completely astounding for such fast read book. I was intrigued by Rossini because he really wanted to help Tahima even though she didn't believe him at all or trust him. I felt that the torture elements were appropriate and not overly done either. There was just enough and no more which was fine by me. I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment in this series Under By Treaty.

Beck's life changes the day "The Man" decides to tell her who he really is to her. Beck's life will never be the same again and she likes it that way. "The Man" is really Richard Beck's mate. Richard is really a vampyre and knows that to drink Beck's blood is poison to him and other vampyre's like him. Richard tells Beck that his all alone except for his brother Leso since the rest of his family is dead. Beck wants to change this for Richard and Leso for all the happiness they've brought her. Only one thing can put a damper on this idea vampyre named Elderson. Can Beck truly bring back Richard and Leso's family? How is this accomplished? What about Elderson? Your answers await you in The Undead Heart. I loved the vampyre lore presented in this story! It follows most of traditional vampyre lore but with truly unique twists not yet explored by other authors. Hands down the best character in this story has to be Beck. She literally does not put up with other people's personal hang ups which other people stumble over into big drama. I appreciate how the author handle alot of aspects in this story that could have been real stumbling blocks. I look forward to the next installment in the series.

  • he & She on Dec. 12, 2015

    I thought that I would like this book based on the blurb. Well it turns out that my expectations fell flat on their ass. I don't know if it's me or what but the writing style and story went from having to dimension to being lifeless and boring. I'm seriously wondering how I made myself finish this book other than the fact that I've got need to finish the book syndrome instead of DNF the book. I wish the author luck with his writing in the future.
