Modern Girl Becomes 12th Century Robin Hood! No Good Deed by Kara Connolly

NO GOOD DEED by Kara Connolly 05 SEPTEMBER, 2017 Title: No Good Deed Author: Kara Connolly Series: Stand-alone Pages: 354 pages Publisher: Delacorte Press Release Date: July 18, 2017 ISBN-10: 0385743939 I found myself smiling while reading most of this book, it took about 100 pages to really get into it…but once I got to that point of no-return I was hooked and couldn’t put the book down. Granted you must enter the state of willing suspension of disbelief (hence the first 100 pages drag), but once you leave your logic brain behind and enjoy the story it becomes absolutely...

A Little LIGHT Reading – Eclipse Worthy Titles For Your Solar Enjoyment

A Little LIGHT Reading Eclipse Worthy Titles For Your Solar Enjoyment 21 AUGUST, 2017 While Arthur C. Clarke’s and Stephen Baxter’s A TIME ODYSSEY series is a little more complicated than a solar storm apocalypse series…it’s definitely worth a good read.

The series is in essence an alien encounter piece, with a sun at the focus. Alien creatures, forced off of their world by the death of their own sun. They believe they are all knowing and advanced,...

My airbnb experiment begins

My airbnb experiment 14 AUGUST, 2017 Airbnb DIY Eight months in the making. Eight somewhat straight months of DIY, online tutorials on how to rewire switches, install hardwood floor, cabinets, sinks…you name it. And finally, my short term rental property is finished. The final month I did it basically on my own, my husband having to go out of the country because of a tragedy. I called in reinforcements from family members to help me move fridges, troubleshoot plugs that weren’t working, and finally to clean. But, I got it there. Yet, even on the cheap we probably spent over...

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

INTO THE WATER by PAULA HAWKINS 07 AUGUST, 2017 Title: Into the Water Author: Paula Hawkins Series: Stand-alone Length: 690 Minutes Publisher: Penguin Audiobooks Release Date: May 02, 2017 ISBN-10: 0525496041 I was looking for something different when I picked up Into The Water by Paula Hawkins and I got it. It’s a sleepy read, that takes a little bit of work to stay focused, but in the end, it was worth it. The novel meanders slowly into some crazy twists and turns, until it finally comes to a stunning conclusion.  I haven’t read Girl On The Train yet, but after listening...
