Moonpennies - Fun Read Friday Book Review

by Alanna Rosette
Genre:Romantic Comedy

     Lina Daniels' mother explained to her when she was young that there is no such thing as true love. Surprisingly enough, Lina grows up to have commitment issues. Always waiting for the other shoe to drop, so to speak, Lina pushes guys away before they can leave and break her heart. She also has a tendency to pursue the unattainable guys. Boy does this ever sound familiar.

     Unlike normal romance books, the main character has a quirky wit and many of the situations she finds herself in are incredibly humorous, if not very realistic - but that is what makes them so hilarious. This book is most definitely a fun read - incredibly light, humorous, and the story was so easy to pour through that I cannot recall any errors, if there were any.

     If I could change anything, it would be the ending. While not quite the traditional cliff hanger, there was still the sense of "Ohmigosh I can't believe the book ended THERE!" I definately cannot wait to find out what happens in the next book and would recommend the series to readers who enjoy a bit of humor with their romance.

I give it 4 star review graphic 4 stars!

The Real Book of the Dead - Book Review

by Collette Sinclaire
Genres: Paranormal, Nonfiction

     The world is not black and white. There are many shades of grey. Within those shades lies the realm of things intangible: ghosts and spirits, telekinetics, psychic abilities, pyrokinetics, aliens, some would even put God into this category. All of the things that cannot be seen or heard and require a bit of faith or belief lie within this realm. Personally, I'm not sure that I'm a believer of these things. But I like to think that I am open minded. I neither believe nor disbelieve. I simply do not have enough information to form a solid opinion one way or another. Many experts say that everyone has some level of psychic abilities, but we never fully realize it. When an old friend calls shortly after you were just thinking about them, is that coincidence or some small level of psychic ability?

     Collette Sinclaire is renowned as a psychic. In this very original book she has collected a series of stories from the spirits and souls that she has been in contact with. Her hopes is to alleviate some of the worry and sadness that we, as mere mortals, experience when loved ones pass on. Sinclaire tells of beauty, hope, of an existence with no more pain, and the freedom from the sickness that may have bound individuals to sick rooms or kept them bedridden. Her words may bring comfort to those who have experienced great pain and loss.

     You do not have to be a believer to enjoy this compelling book, but an open mind would greatly benefit the experience.

I give it 4 star review graphic 4 stars!

Zero Day series #1
by Bobby Adair
Genre: Horror

     Zed Zane is oblivious to the current flu scare that has been generated. He had become disdainful and distrustful of the media hype generated by competing new stations over the years. He perceives the news flashes as just yet another new flu strain sensationalized by news networks. He has other things to worry about. Like eating some crow, swallowing a bit of pride in the process, and asking his mother for money to cover his rent, yet again. But he soon discovers that it is far more than a flu virus that has taken over his hometown.
