Book Review No. 47 - Queens of Conquest by Alison Weir

Hello autumn! Welcome to the cooler weather and the longer nights. It has been a little rough here this week, as I got my wisdom teeth out. I know, most people have this done in there late teens/early twenties. But I guess I just like doing things the hard way. I did get to enjoy an amazing book this week, so I can't complain too much. 

If you enjoy non-fiction books about English history, this is a must. Alison Weir's "Queens of Conquest" is so well done, I really had a hard time putting it down. Now, that is hard to say about non-fiction, especially ones filled with so much detail, but this book is a treasure of information.

Book Review No. 46 - A Dangerous Woman from Nowhere by Kris Radish

Hello there again, welcome back. I haven't been into much lately, except spending way too much time looking at all the Halloween goodies online and in stores. As this is my favorite time of year, I tend to go a bit nutty.

If you like westerns, especially ones with a strong female main character, I think you will enjoy "A Dangerous Woman from Nowhere" by Kris Radish. This is technically a love story, but not in a smutty, naughty romance sort of way, this book isn't in that genre (not there is anything wrong with a nice trashy romance set in the American west).

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.
