Peppermint Essential Oil Review + Giveaway
I have seen many recipes that call for different kinds of oils, but I live in a small town and I have a hard time finding them. Recently, I tried out the Seaweed (Kelp) Powder, which I used as a scrub and as a facial mask. Let me just say that you do need some sort of oil as the seaweed odor is a bit too strong for me. One of the recipes I found for a facial mask calls for Peppermint Oil. [read more]

Review: The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons
First, thanks to Edelweiss and Tor Teen for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title.  This is my first book by this author, even though I do really want to read the Article 5 series, I just haven't gotten a chance to pick them up yet. But now that I've read and really enjoyed this one, I'll have to make sure I get around to them sooner.  The cover and title of this make it sound more like a fantasy novel than a dystopian novel.  But reading the description of it, I knew I had to give i ...

Giveaway & Book Review: The Girl with a Clock for a Heart by Peter Swanson
I enjoyed reading this book, the way the story unfolds is interesting and how the protagonist works through it from the past, to present-day, back to the past is skillfully written. I liked how the author managed to makes the reader think the answer to the question is just on the next page, and then he just pulls it from us to be out of reach again. [read more]

I admit, I judge books by their covers all the time, and there’s a reason. Publishers hire many talented and thoughtful people who know exactly what they’re doing. They know all the visual cues readers respond to and look for when buying books. Fantasy novels usually have a strapping man or woman heavily armed, historical... Continue reading » [read more]

On Modesty
For a while now, modesty is one word that has been placed on my heart.  I think it is partly because I live in an area where the majority of people follow a religion in which modest dress is an expectation and is thus, very noticeable.  When I contrast the people in my neighbourhood with what I see in the media, I wonder “where do I fit in? What is modesty for me?”   [read more]

Book Review: Dear Committee Members by Julia Schumacher
From Goodreads: Jason Fitger is a beleaguered professor of creative writing and literature at Payne University, a small and not very distinguished liberal arts college in the midwest. His department is facing draconian cuts and squalid quarters, while one floor above them the Economics Department is getting lavishly remodeled offices. His once-promising writing career is in the doldrums, as is his romantic life, in part as the result of his unwise use of his private affairs for his novels. ... [read more]

This Week in Reading: Monday, January 26th
2015 started off with a bang: my husband and I closed on a house the last week of December and spent the first two weeks of January packing and painting and planning our move. As of last week, we're officially residents of a new town, in a new county, about an hour west of where we used to live. We're loving it so far: great restaurants, incredibly nice people, and an awesome independent bookstore. Added bonus: most everything we could need is in walking distance, so we're trying things out ... [read more]

It's Margery Sharp Day!
A lovely idea from Jane @ Fleur in her World - ' the plan is for as many people as possible to read one of Margery’s books and post about it on her birthday'.  For me it has been an introduction to an author I hadn't read before. I'm sure her books would have been around years a go when I was young but not the sort of thing I would have been interested in then. I chose to read The Sun in Scorpio which was published in 1965, one of her later works and from these opening lines I knew I was go ... [read more]
Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy
I really wanted to love this book--it has all the right elements--it's a history book about the Civil War ( a lifetime interest of mine), it's about women breaking through traditional gender roles and doing interesting things, and it was dissed in a book review in the Washington Post that made me want to rally to author Karen Abbott's side.  I snatched it up as soon as my local library got a copy because I knew it would have a long waiting list.

Arcady's Goal by Eugene Yelchin takes place on the eve of WWII in Soviet Russia.  Arcady, now twelve, has been raised in orphanages.  His parents were taken away when he was a baby as they were accused of being "enemies of the state". Orphanages are the only home he has ever known. The other thing he knows well, though, is soccer.  Where he has picked up his mad soccer skills, we will never know, but he dreams of being the next striker for the Red Army soccer team.  [read more]

review: the widow's daughter by nicholas edlin
Billed as a story of a man haunted by his time as a doctor with the Marines in New Zealand during World War II, The Widow's Daughter takes an excruciatingly long time to get started. The pivotal characters (other than the Marines) are not introduced in the first 100 pages and the murder of Emily's brother occurs just shy of page 300 of a 370 page book. The earlier plot is somewhat interesting for its take on what the war was like for those stationed away from the action, but it grows tires ... [read more]
