This week's question is:


Do you have a favorite series that you read over and over again? Tell us a bit about it and why you keep on revisiting it.

Here are my favorite series I will read over and over: 
1) Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montegomery - because the series takes me back to my childhood
2) Sookie Stackhouse by Charlaine Harris - mostly to keep up with the differences with True Blood haha.
3) Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper- snark fest and it is set in Alaska 
4) Mist of Avalon Series by Marion Zimmer Bradley- I fell in love with it years ago and still think it is magic. The series may just be called Avalon. I'm not certain.
5) Hannah Swensen Series  by Joann Fluke - I especially like reading these over in the winter months, maybe for the cookie recipes? I don't know. But I truly do love this series. 
 Here are covers from the first book of each series:

This week's theme is sound/music.


I am taking my snippet from the book The Choice by Lorhainne Eckhart




“Who are you?” Marcie couldn’t breathe. The air stuck somewhere beneath her stomach, she choked. This sultry kick ass woman didn’t answer. She just aimed her index finger and thumb like a loaded gun, a direct line of fire, straight at Marcie. The eerie sound of metal grinding jarred the marrow inside her bones. Then the strange woman laughed a deep throaty chuckle, tossed her head back, and strode around the trailer to the old woodshed, hidden in plain sight. 
Panic licked the back of her throat. She didn’t know how she moved. All she knew, no one could go near the shed. Heat closed around them. She became deaf to everything, but the drumbeats filling her head. Shivering…

Review Kindergarten by Susan Case

Kindergarten: Tattle-tales, Tools, Tactics, Triumphs and Tasty Treats for Teachers and Parents by Susan Case
* I received this book for review from the author. No promise of a good review was made. No compensation was received. The review is based on my honest opinion of the book.*
This book can easily be read and understood by both teachers and parents. It touches on many subjects dealing with children preschool to kindergarten age, (although I am certain you could go a bit beyond). The author was a teacher both in regular education and special education, as well as being a mother, (one of her children is a special needs child). She brings her education and experience  together in an exceptional book.  I loved reading of happenings in her classroom. I know from dealing with my own children and now Junior, you need to be very clear with what you invite a child to do at, or bring to, school.  In her first chapter she spoke on "Show and Tell". This was a concept  Junior first hear…

Review of Shifter 2040 by Ami Blackwelder

The Shifters 2040 Ami Blackwelder
* I was given a copy of this book by the author for review. No promise of a good review was given. I received no compensation for this review. The review is my honest opinion of this book.*
Aliens have been discovered in the United States. They have been perceived to be a threat and the military has been success in annihilating them. There last known holdout is Alaska. Dr Melissa Marn is a scientist working in a lab at the SCM (Shifter Counterinsurgency Military) Base. Being a part of the military is important for Melissa as her father is a military man. So even though she does not agree with the experiments being conducted on the Shifters and their children she still conducts them.
General Raul is insistent that they learn everything they can about the Shifters. He says it is for safety reasons but really he is power hungry and has beliefs that, to me, run a lot along the lines of Hitler. As a matter of fact through much of this book I thought of Hitler…

We Have Power.

We are up again. :)

Thank you Jenn for letting everyone know what was going on. I appreciate it. This has not been my week. LOL. I am working on my review of Shifter 2040 so it should be up later today. I am also writing up some other reviews and working on some happenings for October.

I have invited authors to share in some Halloween fun for the month of October. Several authors have been sending in Halloween themed post for you all to read during October. I am expecting it to be a lot of fun. There will also be a giveaway happening during the month and The Darkside Book Tour! I will be reviewing books by Stacey Kennedy and A. Jacob Sweeny for the tour. I also have planned more book reviews and the memes I enjoy so much. I love Halloween and I hope you will all enjoy everything I have planned..
