Review of The Universe-ity

Did you ever sit in a classroom and wonder what you were doing there? I have had that feeling on such occasions.

I often sat in algebra classes and wondered how knowing x+z-xc=7 was going to get me to a point where I would be able to teach kindergarten or have a family. I am pretty sure knowing that the state of Colorado has a vast dinosaur deposit was not going to get me that car I wanted either.

Was I really learning the things I needed to know so that I could attract those things into my life?

I heard about the laws of attraction several years ago and dabbled a bit. However, I did not know that much to thoroughly manifest the people. places and things I wanted in my life.

Enters the book by Michael Samuels, The Universe-ity.

In his follow up book from Just Ask The Universe, Michael Samuels takes you through a step by step of what to do and what not to do in the asking of things. He shows the reader through several examples that you do not necessarily need an education to get everything you want.

Ironically, the book is designed in such a way that you start in "Homeroom" and end up with "Senior" year. There is homework and even a certificate of "diploma" in the back. It is tongue in cheek but proves the point that one must be careful and take gradual steps and asking for things correctly in the big thing we call the universe. This is one education everyone from young to old can use!

Review of Stillwell and Giveaway

There is nothing quite like a good ghost story to stir the hairs on the back of your neck. Michael Phillip Cash accomplishes that very thing in his new book, Stillwell.

I had the opportunity to read this book the other night, when the super moon was shining down upon us, which made it even spookier. *cue evil laughter*

Michael Cash writes his newest thriller in such a way that the reader is taken through a weeks worth of life in seven chapters and a prolouge. I found the style to be compact and intriguing.

The book opens with the main character of Paul whose wife has just died of cancer. He is a real estate agent who put his life and the lives of his children on hold just to take care of her. He is preparing for his three children, a set of twins and a single, to arrive back in their home, this now being a week after the funeral of his beloved.

The story moves in to the family trying to come to terms with the death and have a new way of life, when one of the twins begins having horrid dreams of a monstrous being.  Paul too has the same kind of dreams in which he sees his wife being held captive.
The youngest also is 'seeing' her mother but cannot convince her father who does not believe in such things as ghost.

Getting back to some sort of normalcy Paul returns to his former business and is contracted by his friend to sell the Stillwell Manor Estate. A home where he had befriended one of the sons of the family that owned the house.

The only caveat is that the house is purported to be haunted and his friend's in-laws had just committed a murder-suicide in the home.

Paul becomes obsessed with the home when his dreams about his wife become entangled together with this homes history. Many intriguing and revealing secrets come to light as an all too familiarity to the ghost of the past from the Stillwell Manor, to the ghost of his present life begin to mesh.

Will Paul and his family ever find comfort in their loss? Will the ghost of the past finally be at peace? Read and find out!

This thriller book offering from Michael Cash is brilliant. I loved every single minute of it and could not put it down, in truth, I could read it again and again! Do I hear movie in the near future?

If you like a good ghost story, intrigued by old houses or better yet, haunted houses, then this is the book for you.

Review of "Stuck In The Doldrums" by Carole P. Roman

Have you ever been around someone who is just so bossy that you wished you were somewhere else but with them? Yeah, me too!

Author Carole P. Roman, in another book of her Captain No Beard series of books, shares this problem in her new book, Stuck in the Doldrums.

Captain No Beard finds himself and his crew stuck on a deserted island where there is no wind to set sail. The crew finds other things to do like build a sand castle or look at the clouds.

As Captain No Beard finds himself to be quite bored, he begins to order his crew that is having fun around. This causes the crew to mutiny and the Captain to storm off to his ship and run it without them.

In an act that sometimes happens to a ships Captain, a problem erupts on the ship and Captain No Beard realizes that he needs his crew and cannot do everything by himself.

Does the ship go down at sea? Does the crew rescue Captain No Beard? Does he continue to be bossy to his crew?

To find out all of the answers to these questions read the book. It is worth it and a good lesson about working together and kindness.

This book gets:
