Dead Lawyers Don’t Lie by Mark Nolan

This book was very exciting for me!  I was caught up in the action the whole time.  I did not want to put this book down.  I loved it!  There was action, adventure and so much more.  There were exciting moments and twists and turns in this book.  I loved the characters and all the energy popping off the pages. I am glad I was asked to give this book a chance and I can’t wait for book 2!!  * I received this book from the author and this is my honest review*  5/5

The Lying Planet by Carol Riggs

I enjoyed this book very much.  It is always interesting to me to pretend or dream with authors about what the world can be in the future.  I think this book is a bit Sci-fi but I see the creativity in it as well.  Living on a planet that you thought you knew and finding out it is all lies is a hard pill to swallow for sure.  Who would want it to screw up you whole life? The book has some great twists and exciting things happen.  I enjoyed it!  * I received this book from Netgalley and this is my honest review*  4/5

The Ares Weapon by D.M. Pruden

This book to me was interesting.  It was different than most books I read.  This book was very creative and I enjoyed many parts of this book.  Dr. Mel’s changing careers rings true to the change world we live in.  I think that makes it more real to me and current. I enjoyed following her on her adventures.  * I received this book from the author—this is my honest review*  4/5

Athene’s Prophecy by Ian J. Miller

I was kind of on the fence about this book.  I did like it but sometimes I was distracted by the descriptions of scientific theory in the book.  I’m not sure this book was exactly my “cup of tea” but it was ok for what it was.  I was hoping for a little more but I did learn from this book as well. * I received this book from the author–this is my honest review*  3/5

Wonder why this didn’t post on the tenth…oh well, it’s posted now!

Portraits of the Dead by John Nicholl

This was a very creepy but great book!  I was glad I got a chance to listen to it.  I loved it.  It was scary and I was pulling for Emma the whole book.  I was hoping she made it.  I think the characters were believable in this book and the plot was scary.  “This review copy audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost.”  5/5

This election cycle sucked balls!

I’m not happy about the election, let me get that firmly established from the start. I thought we had shitty choices all around.

That said, we need to chill out and come together. I can’t believe the animosity and hate I keep seeing people throw at each other, close family members at that.

It’s saddening to me, watching as my country divides into a mess we created.

I don’t understand people who said Obama is the devil. Was he our greatest president ever? No, by far he was not, but was he evil? Of course not! I remember thinking throughout his entire presidency that people were crazy. Saying he’s going to set up fema camps to lock all citizens up, and things of this nature, made these people look like crackpots. I remember my liberal friends telling my conservative ones that the rhetoric they were starting would lead down a dark path. Some stopped, most didn’t, and they will consider Obama a devil until the day he dies.

All the while they were told “how they should act” because he’s our president.

Now, 8 years later and a particularly hard stretch of political theatre has those same liberals crying out, “Not my president!” and I find it confusing.

Should the conservative party fallen in line with Obama, especially after he won his second term? If you answered yes to this, then why are you protesting now?

I didn’t want President Trump, but I can’t believe the amount of people who are contradicting themselves. Why are you choosing to look at friends and neighbors with such hate in your eyes? Such animosity leads us to separate and keeps us from unifying to do what we need to do.

While I didn’t want President Trump, I hope he does well, because I’m on the ship he’s captain of.

I wrote a short piece that espouses my fear with the ending of this election.

And so our country died, with the people’s unwillingness to unify and make peace. Those shouting “Fuck Obama” didn’t start the second civil war, but they certainly started the rhetoric that lead to the assassination of President Trump.

#ChooseLove my friends, let’s heal ourselves rather than continuing to divide.

Chills by Mary SanGiovanni

Ghosts and scary and everything I love!  This book was a great horror book for me.  I enjoyed it.  It did in fact give me chills at some points in the book. I believe this book a great plot and characters.  It took me where I wanted and kept me reading until the end.  * I received this book from NetGalley–This is my honest review*
