The Hunger Games: Book 1
We're all familiar with the old storytelling trope about the evil empire oppressing the good guys who are helpless to do anything about it. Those actual stories, though, have one particular thing in common: They're all told from the point of view of one of the scrappy revolutionary good guys. Has anyone ever wondered about the everyday people who weren't some secret spies for the rebels? This is the …

The Hunger Games: Book 1
Told from the perspective of the main character, Katniss, THE HUNGER GAMES takes place in a future where the United States as we know it no longer exists. The book never explains exactly what happened, but years earlier there was some sort of economic collapse and global catastrophe. In the aftermath, what was once the continent of North America is now a country called Panem. In what is explained …

The Hunger Games: Book 1
I liked the book. I've read a good bit of dystopian literature,and I found the premise fascinating. But I have to say that I was badly distracted by some fairly dreadful flaws in the actual writing. Way too much was "telegraphed", and the plot bogged down in a couple of places. I wish I could have given it higher marks -- but really can't.

Green Lantern
Green Lantern has always been and always will be one of my favorite heros from the DC Universe. There have been many Lanterns in the Green form as I am sure some of you know. But most people will most likely know Hal Jordan either from the many popular comics, the animated features, or most likely from the live action flick. Regardelss this character has some of the coolest powers, battles, and stories …

Love this book. No wonder it's so highly recommended! I've never thought about this aspect of relationships before, but Gary Chapman divvies up and explains everything so well. Very highly recommended for anyone looking to get and give more out of any type of relationship.

Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding
Many of us wonder what comes after death. A few are convinced that we become dust and that’s that. Others are certain that there is a Heaven and we’ll all end up there at some point...if we play our cards right, or take care of the Karma issue even if that takes several lives. And others believe in a literal Heaven and Hell.    Now, add to that debate what happens when someone …

Paradise Valley (The Daughters of Caleb Bender)
 I have loved Levi’s Will, a gripping novel written in a Amish males point of view, so when I heard Dale Cramer was doing a prequel to it, I jumped at the chance to receive a review copy. Dale used real events as a backdrop for his new story that caught my interest and made me realize how much America has changed over the years in our education department. In 1921, five Amish fathers were …

I have several books that I'm looking forward to reading this year, and all of them are in the non-fiction, and educational and self-help realm. I'm looking to read books on psychology and relationships …

You Know When The Men Are Gone by Siobhan Fallon
You Know When The Men Are Gone is a beautifully written slender volume of short stories centering around the wives of deployed soldiers based at Ft. Hood, Texas. The stories are loosely related involving different families and different situations, but with a common thread running through each of them that highlights the emotional drain of having a spouse deployed in Iraq and away for a year. Sometimes …

Wounded: A Love Story
Wounded is primarily the story of Gina Merritt a young single mother. She struggles to make ends meet, but she has a strong faith. At a church service for Ash Wednesday, she receives a special vision from God and her palm starts to bleed. This is known as stigmata and it's the first time I've ever read about it, and that aspect alone was fascinating to me. Anthony Priest, a drug addicted …
