Claimed 
By K.R. Smith

Details:  Novella - Romance - Adult content
ebook, 50 pages - Werewolf story
Published April 2011 by Smashwords 

Description:(Goodreads)   Jessica Tandy is coming back from a camping trip in Alaska, when she meets the tall, dark and handsome Flint Riverclaw. They chat in a bar during a rest stop, which eventuates into a one-night-stand, and ultimately changes the rest of her life. Why do Flint’s brown eyes occasionally glow turquoise, or he growls so much? Imaginations run wild, in this supernatural, romance novella.

My Thoughts:
I got this as a free download to my Kindle and for a free download it was not to bad.... I rather enjoyed the book and the story line.  I love books about werewolves so I thought I would download it and start reading it.  Now I didn't realize it was a Novella at first until I started wondering why things were moving way to fast for a novel then I got to looking and it was a Novella.  That was my fault for not fulling getting all the information before reading it.  But for a Novella it sure was pretty enjoyable for me.

The main characters Jessica Tandy and Flint Riverclaw were easy to fall in love with.  Flint Riverclaw was the ideal protect the woman to the death type of guy, which I love and Jessica was a city girl who was clearly not the outdoors type. The author did a wonderful job describing all the characters in the novella so the reader could get a good feel for them and get to know them in a short time.  Things in this novella did more a little quick for me but for the most part the author did a wonderful job.

This novella is an adult romance and I would not recommend it to a young teen because of it's sexual content.  It does have a couple of love making scenes in the book but the author does a wonderful job with that part of the story as well.  It isn't to heavy and explicit but still adult content and very well done.
I give this book 3 stars didn't like it it was ok liked it (my current rating) really liked it it was amazing .

I really don't like the cover to this book I felt they could of done so much more for it.  I am one that covers really catch my eye and I didn't check this one out before downloading.  But I guess that is why you don't judge a book by its cover because I did enjoy the novella just wasn't rocking the cover.

Demon Girl - Review

Demon Girl
By Penelope Fletcher

Details: I Reviewed the Kindle Edition
Published October 7th 2010, Young Adult
Book #1 Rae Wilder Series

Description: (Goodreads) Rae Wilder has problems.... Supernatural creatures swarm the earth, and humanity is on the brink of extinction. Stalked by a handsome fairy who claims she is like him, demonkind, Rae thinks maybe it was a mistake breaking the rules by going over the Wall into demon territory. Plunged into a world of dark magics, fierce creatures, and ritual sacrifice, she is charged with a guarding a magical amulet. The changes to her mind and body are startling, but rather than accept her purpose she struggles against who she is destined to be. Throw in a big lust for a vampire who can't keep his hands off her, and life starts to get complicated. Rae is forced to make the ultimate choice: to live and die human, or embrace her birth-right and wield magics that could turn her into something wicked, a force of nature nothing can control.

My Thoughts:

I haven't read any books with fairs before reading Demon Girl so I wasn't sure if I was going to like this or not. I actually did like the story line and the characters but I felt more time should of been spent getting us to know them more. I thought this moved along way to quickly for me and I found myself trying to back track and catching up.

I enjoy books that have demons, vampires, witches and other demon like characters in them. I have never really thought of a fairy as a demon but this book blinds them all in together and makes it work. This was an enjoyable young adult book with adventure, romance and so much more. I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars. didn't like it it was ok liked it (my current rating) really liked it it was amazing

My First Hands-On Bible - Review


My First Hands-On Bible
By Tyndale

Details: Hardcover, 416 pages, Age Group 3 - 6
Retail Price - $16.99
Published July 15th 2011 by Tyndale House Publishers

Description: ( Tyndale) My First Hands-On Bible is the preschooler version of the popular Hands-On Bible, which has sold over a half million copies. Jesus taught with hands-on lessons and illustrations; My First Hands-On Bible uses the same experience-based learning to communicate God’s Word in an active, understandable way. My First Hands-On Bible is a fun and simple yet meaningful way to engage preschool, pre-K, and K children (ages 3-6) with the Bible while helping them build a solid faith foundation. Each lesson focuses on a specific Bible point through a variety of activities in order to reinforce and help young children remember the stories and lessons. Using common household items, you can help your children have a “hands-on” learning experience while engaging them in 85 key stories from the Bible. My First Hands-On Bible doesn’t just retell the Bible stories; it also includes actual Scripture from the easy-to-understand and easy-to-read Holy Bible, New Living Translation. In addition to the stories and activities, there are fun illustrations, prayers, and a special Jesus Connection feature.


My Thoughts: My daughter and I just loved her new Hands-On Bible. She thought it was a wonderful thing to listen to me reading her Bible and then she got to draw, discuss or do little projects that coincide with what she was learning. I thought this was such a net way to learn about The Bible.

When you read each page there are little things written in the margins of things you can do with your little one. For example: Page 91 "Jump as high as you can. A giant is even taller than that!" or Page 201 "Hug yourself tightly, 2nd imagine God holding you." And at the end of each verse there is a page of things to do. I like the lets talk section because it allows you to have your children talk about things and you also like "Tell about a time someone forgave you.'

I really enjoyed reading this with my daughter and doing the little projects with her. I believe she will and has learned a lot more from this Hands-On Bible then the childrens Bible I usually read to her. This one allows her to actually do more than just listen it helps her learn.

Explore... Simple Machines - Review

Explore Simple Machines! With 25 Great Projects
By Anita Yasuda

Details: Publisher - Nomad Press Oct 1, 2011
Recommended Reading Level Ages 4 - 8
Paperback - 96 pages

Description: (Goodreads) Investigating the common contraptions that make so much possible—from zippers and rolling pins to catapults and the pyramids—this book encourages kids to look differently at the numerous objects in everyday life. Each chapter is dedicated to one of the six straightforward implements that are at the core of daily activity: levers, inclined planes, pulleys, screws, wedges, and wheels and axles. Using only discarded items from the recycling bin, this guide harnesses kid-power by inviting young readers to build gadgets of their own design, including a working crane, a drawbridge, a car made of fruit peels, and an actual whirligig. Short biographies are also featured throughout, illustrating the influential personalities behind the breakthroughs.

My Thoughts: I really liked this book and so did my kids. We really had fun doing the projects together and learning all about them. There are 25 easy projects to do, we didn't do them all but we did do a lot of them. What fun we had sitting up and building our mini putt golf course... We learned how on pager 32 its called the mini putt golf challenge. The kids played for a while with this project building more ramps at different levels. Other projects we made were Make your own Helicopter page 56, we designed a castle pulley system page 78 and even did our own scavenger hunt found on page 85.

This is a wonderful book of projects that are fun and educational for your children. My kids learned a lot and had fun with this book. I was happy that they had a glossary in the back of the book for my kids could look up a word and find out what it means. This would also be a neat book to have around when it's time for your children to do science fair projects.

My Thoughts: With the help of my little reviewer below :-)

My youngest daughter just loves books and her favorite ones are the most colorful ones. We received Kathryn the Grape's Colorful Adventure in the mail the other day and she hasn't put it down since. Even thou she doesn't know how to read yet with out my help she sure loves spending time looking at the colorful pictures. I love the beautifully illustrated pages of this book. It sure keep my little one's attention to it while I read to her.

I have had to read this book to her several times because she loves it so much. It doesn't sit on her book self for long. I am glad this is more than just another childrens book, It is a children's book with a wonderful message... My daughter gets to follow Kathryn and Maggie along a journey to discover how to make Kathryn's rainbow shine.


My daughter want's a charm bracelet with all the colors and charm's just like Kathryn's. She wants the charms to light up when she learns something new just like Kathryn's so her rainbow can shine.

This was a wonderful book for children to read and enjoy the wonderful message it has to offer. I would have no problem recommending this book to anyone. I give this book an easy 5 stars, not only was this a wonderful book it was so colorful for children to enjoy. didn't like it it was ok liked it really liked it it was amazing (my current rating)
