My Review I grew up in Amish country in Northern New York, an area of both strict ordnungs more liberal Mennonites, so the topic of this book intrigued me the moment I read the back.  The story is mainly set in Pinecraft, a community in Florida that consists of both Amish and Mennonite residents.  “Snowbirds” are […]

My Review The Country of Ice Cream Star came to me almost by accident.  The library on post hosted an event around Valentine’s Day called Blind Date with a Book.  I chose one based on nothing more than a genre and a vague blurb.  And it was unlike anything I’ve ever read. It is a […]

My Review I really love the premise of this series!  In the world of Seriously Shifted, witches are not good.  Not all of them are evil, but there is a defined since of superiority that allows them to live by rules of their own.  But Camellia is determined to change that.  Her mother is on the […]

My Review The Sun is Also a Star is the second novel by Nicola Yoon and I loved it every bit as much as the first.  There was just something about this book that got to me.  And, in retrospect, this is surprising, because a big part of it centers around something I usually hate. […]

My Review I ran across Seriously Wicked on the e-library site for my local Army library and fell in love with the cover.  But they didn’t own the book.  I recommended it, and the next in the series,  for purchase and, much to my delight, the library purchased both of them. It is a quirky, quirky novel, […]

My Review Diabolic is the first in a new series of the same name by author S.J. Kincaid.  The book is science fiction in every sense of the world.  It takes place in the distant future that in no way resembles are own.  The power structure is an Empire and it is based on a sun […]

My Review Everything, Everything is the debut novel from author Nicola Yoon.  It is the story of a girl named Madeline who hasn’t left her house in over seventeen years.  She has SCID, an autoimmune disease that is very rare and leaves her allergic to just about anything and everything.  Her entire world is her […]

Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology

Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology

My Review I started watching Leah Remini’s documentary on A&E about Scientology and have been fascinated with it.  I have a self-admitted fascination with how different faiths work, especially those of a more controversial nature.  It was what led me to the library to find this book.  And I haven’t been able to put it […]
