Book Review No. 45 - Spirits of the Cage by Richard Estep and Vanessa Mitchell

Hope everyone is doing well, and enjoying the last little bit of summer before autumn takes over. I love autumn, all the decoration, the cooler weather, and overall feeling of the season. The book I read this week really ties into the autumn-feel, especially with Halloween not too far off.
If you like real-life ghost stories, you will probably enjoy this book. "Spirits of the Cage: True Accounts of Living in a Haunted Medieval Prison" by Richard Estep and Vanessa Mitchell is a chilling read about one woman's life struggle living in The Cage for over three years and a paranormal investigators 5 day immersion into her world.

Adorable Artificial Terrarium from HedgeScapes

Hello everyone, welcome back. This post is going to be a little different than normal, but I wanted to tell you all about this amazing company and their beautiful products.
Some people are blessed with a green thumb, my mother is one of those people. They can transform their homes and yards using a variety of plants that thrive no matter what. I am not one of those people. I believe I have the death touch when it comes to plants, no matter the variety of plant, within a few months I kill it. I follow all the directions, call my mom for advice, and still they die.

Book Review No. 44 - Reincarnation Blue by Michael Poore

Everyone welcome, I hope you are enjoying the site. I know its mostly been book reviews lately, I hope to remedy that soon.

I couldn't put this week's book down. "Reincarnation Blues" by Michael Poore is a witty, humorous story of a man named Milo who's lived nearly 10,000 lives. If I believed in reincarnation, this is how I would imagine it. Each life is supposed to teach a lesson, and ultimately, people are supposed to achieve a "perfect" life. Milo, has lived more lives than any, and yet he still hasn't received perfection. His afterlife is also complicated, as he is involved in a forbidden love.

Updates - What's been going on medically? Esophageal Manometry

Welcome, grab some tea and sit a spell. Let me start by saying this is an update post, so if you aren't interested in my on-going health-care issues and what not, you may want to just skip this.
It's been about 9 months since all of my medical issues have started, and I would love to say they finally figured out what is wrong with  me, but unfortunately that would be a lie. I think they are getting closure, so fingers crossed.

Book Review No. 43 - The Witch's Book of Spirits by Devin Hunter

Welcome back to the blog. It's been a little bit, but I've got some work done outside of cyberspace, so that is exciting.
For this installation of Book Review Tuesday I finished "The Witch's Book of Spirits" by Devin Hunter. Let me first say this book is packed with a lot of material, and would serve as a good reference book.

Book Review No. 42 - Magical Power for Beginners by Deborah Lipp

Well hello there! Welcome back to my little blog, thanks for taking a gander and I hope you find something interesting. Not a whole lot is going on right now, just trying to stay cool in the heat. I've been listening to a lot of AFI, Alkaline Trio and Charlotte OC. If you've not checked out these artists, you really should.

It took me a little while to finish this week's book, but in no way is that a bad thing. Deborah Lipp's book "Magical Power for Beginners" is excellent. I can honestly say if you are new to this topic, this is a perfect place to start. Lipp covers a whole range of topics, some I never even thought to explore, in a very approachable manner.

Book Review No. 41 - The Silent Corner by Dean Koontz

Well hello there! Come and sit a spell, if you are looking for a good book to read, I have some recommendations on the site.

This week, well just actually today, I finished "The Silent Corner" by Dean Koontz. This is a great cerebral thriller, and I have to say Mr. Koontz is always a good read. He is one of my all-time favorite authors, I've been reading his books for probably almost 2 decades now. As a teenager, I even wrote him a letter condemning him for killing one of his characters. He was ever so polite to reply back, which I never expected!
