If you don't think that you need to read this book, then you aren't paying attention. It's not a conspiracy theory book or some prepper manifesto. It is a study of actual events that have happened in the US in recent history. Well written, well researched, I've … Continue reading Book Review: When They Come for You: How Police and Government Are Trampling Our Liberties – and How to Take Them Back

Do I always say that? I feel like I say it too much, and yet if there is a cap to favorite books, I've to exceed that number. Harbour's story was both believable and heartwrenching. Even though things did not turn … Continue reading ARC Review: Safe Harbour

Book Review: Spell on Wheels

This is another title that I chose after watching an OwlCrate Video. Those gals and I seem to have similar tastes in books. Luckily, it was available online from my library with no wait, and I was able to get immediate gratification. It's the last of my non-Cybils reading for awhile. Anyhow, if you are looking … Continue reading Book Review: Spell on Wheels

Book Review: The Light at the Bottom of the World

A watery world is pretty much my worst possible Dystopian setting. I'm no fan of the water and living on a planet that is all water, and no air disturbed me a bit. The writing itself is descriptive and poetic. You'll be amazed at the world-building. I'd compare it to Harry Potter and The Hunger … Continue reading Book Review: The Light at the Bottom of the World

All I knew about this book was that the MC sometimes turns into a naked mole rat when she feels anxiety. Being a person in the real world, I do not turn into any animal (sad, but true) but man, I could relate to the anxiety that characters in … Continue reading Book Review: Naked Mole Rat Saves the World
