Spotlight - Lucy Springer Gets Even by Lisa Heidke

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

I recently received this book to review which I will be doing in more depth in the coming weeks but I am enjoying it so much I just wanted to share the details of it with you now. It's rare you find a book you are truly compelled to share but this one I am so here's a little info on it from Amazon.

Product Description

Lucy Springer thinks she's got it tough. She's living through renovation hell, her two kids seem more challenging than ever, and her once successful acting career has been reduced to the odd commercial. Then Max, her husband, absconds to Bali with an unknown companion and things go from bad to disastrous. But Lucy doesn't give up easily. Juggling increasingly chaotic building dramas, bewildered children, her crazy best friend/agent Gloria, and her ever helpful mother with chasing after Max, Lucy Springer is determined to get her life onto an even keel and more. This delightful new novel is an often hilarious account of triumphing over adversity, following your dreams and listening to your heart.

Book Review - Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris

Monday, June 28, 2010

I waited for nearly a month for Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris to come into the library. Finally it did, just in time for me to finish it before we head out on our vacation in July. I was so excited to read it because each Sookie novel has had me on the edge of my seat to read the next one.

This is the first time that I will have to really wait after finishing one of the Sookie Stackhouse books as I have finally reached the end of the series, or at least the last book that has been written so far. I don't see it being the last Sookie book all together simply because it's still open ended. It's just begging for more and so am I. I can not wait for the number 11 though I am sure there aren't set in stone plans for that yet since Dead in the Family only came out earlier this year.

Dead in the Family is everything I have come to expect from Charlaine Harris and all I can say is please, please keep writing about Sookie, Bill, Eric and all the wonderful characters you have created.

I will have to keep myself occupied with True Blood which I won't be able to see the new season till they are all out since HBO doesn't release them to iTunes until the whole season has completely aired. I have the last two seasons to watch to get me back up to speed till then.

Found this video on Huffington Post and want to share it with you because the books recommended in this segment for teens have me wanting to read some young adult novels over the summer.

Book Review - Body Parts: A Collection of Poems About Aging by Janet Cameron Hoult

Thursday, June 24, 2010

I love this book! What a great way to start a review, I love being able to start a review that way. Thank you Janet Cameron Hoult for writing Body Parts: A Collection of Poems About Aging.

I thought this book was written with an older audience in mind after all I am only 29 years old. 29 YEARS OLD!! OMG I AM GOING TO BE 30 THIS YEAR!! On second thought this book is perfect for me and anyone else who can feel the years creeping up on them. Whether you are 25 or 85 each little thing (is you hair thinning?, your vision not what it used to be?) triggers something inside you, the knowledge that you are aging. Each poem in Body Parts looks at those little ups and downs that nature bestows upon us as we age.

I really empathized with the aging process. The poems in Body Parts helped me realize even though I'm not really THAT old aging is happening, it is a process and I should embrace it for what it is while living each day to it's fullest.

Book Review - The grey Grey Cloud by Manjula Naraynan

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

The grey Grey Cloud by Manjula Naraynan brings one question to my mind. Why do we lie to our children? Let me be clear, I fully believe in fairy tales and the amazement of imagination as a matter of fact I have two fairy tattoos on my back along with the word Believe. But there is a big difference between make believe and flat out lies.
Let's say you are a grey cloud that cries when there is a thunderstorm because, well lets all be honest thunderstorms can be scary even as an adult. So it is totally understandable that a baby cloud or child would be frightened when the wind is blowing and the rain is coming down. My first reaction to make my son feel better is to explain that the rain comes down to clean the Earth and the lightning strikes because there is a lot of electricity built up in the clouds that has to go somewhere and the thunder is the noise that the lightning makes when it strikes. It is NOT to tell him that there are wicked witches and goblins outside that can only be seen when the clouds make it dark outside!! And that the rain and wind and lightning and thunder are all to help scare away the Witches and Goblins that live outside all the time that we just can't see! What the Hell? Now instead of being comforted and educated the kids who read this book are afraid there are Witches and Goblins outside when it rains.
Why oh God Why can't we just tell them the truth? What would be so bad about the same silver fairy teaching the same grey cloud about why rain really comes down and what really causes lightning? It's one thing to make believe but this book just flat out lies to little kids and I do not support that. Children need magic in their lives but isn't nature magical enough?

Book Review - A Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris

Sunday, June 20, 2010

I have been so enjoying the Sookie books by Charlaine Harris that when I saw there was a collection of the short stories starring Sookie I just had to get it from the library.
A Touch of Dead (Sookie Stackhouse: The Complete Stories) was all I had hoped. I had read a couple of the stories already in other collections but it was great to reread them in chronological order in this book.
The stories in this collection are "Fairy Dust," "One Word Answer," "Dracula Night," "Lucky," and "Giftwrap."with a great little introduction from Charlaine Harris. I love introductions that talk right to the reader and lets them in on the process of writing, this one does just that.
There are other Sookieverse stories out there that are not included in this book which would be nice to have in a collection one day that is also in chronological order because for a person like me that came into the series late it is easy to get the full novels in order but a bit harder to find all the short stories in the right order. A collection one day that has ALL the short stories in order would be awesome but for now A Touch of Dead starring Sookie is a great read and a must read for anyone reading the Sookie series.

Book Review - Doctor Who Forever Autumn by Mark Morris

Saturday, June 19, 2010

I picked up Doctor Who: Forever Autumn by Mark Morris at the library to take care of two reading challenges, The Doctor Who Reading Challenge and the Time Travel Reading Challenge and also just because I want to read it. I really love Doctor Who and the more novels I read the more I fall in love with him and the whole mythology to The Doctor. The novels definately add to the whole Doctor experience so do yourself a favor and read one, or two, or three....

Product Description:
It is almost Halloween in the sleepy New England town of Blackwood Falls. Autumn leaves litter lawns and sidewalks, paper skeletons hang in windows and carved pumpkins leer from stoops and front porches. The Doctor and Martha soon discover that something long-dormant has awoken in the town, and this will be no ordinary Halloween. What is the secret of the ancient chestnut tree and the mysterious books discovered tangled in its roots? What rises from the local churchyard in the dead of night, sealing up the lips of the only witness? And why are the harmless trappings of Halloween suddenly taking on a creepy new life of their own? As nightmarish creatures prowl the streets, the Doctor and Martha must battle to prevent both the townspeople and themselves from suffering a grisly fate...

Book Review - What About the Children? by Dianne Nelson

Friday, June 18, 2010

I received What About The Children?: What's the Strategy to Prevent These Tragedies? by Dianne Nelson for review recently and the very moment I saw the front cover I knew it would be an emotional read. It lived up to that first impression.
What About the Children? explores the case of one single child in the foster care system and how that system simply doesn't care for her at all. Along with so many other "systems" in this country it just doesn't work. This child is so obviously mistreated by her first foster care family but no one does a single thing about it, in fact the system sides with the foster family when the little girl says she is being abused and molested they don't even have her examined they just leave her there and continue to pay these people money to care for her. Hell the system does worse to biological parents if there is an accusation made of that magnitude.
It's just awful what happens to children in these kinds of situations and this little book does a wonderful job highlighting some of the issues with the system that supposed to protect them. I am so glad Dianne and her daughter made it through the hard times to come out better people with more knowledge and understanding on the other side.

Book Review - Difficult People by Jim Stallings

Thursday, June 17, 2010

I received Difficult People: Flash Fictions by Jim Stallings (admittedly a while ago) for review.
This book has been in my bathroom for a few months now. Some people would think that is a bad thing but in fact it is not. Difficult People is a book of Flash Fictions or super short stories that really jump into each character with abandon. Each flash fiction is engrossing and at times very intense, making them a bit hard to read back to back to back in this book of 231 pages.
The fact that they are short but intense makes them a perfect bathroom read. I am not sure they could be truly appreciated if read straight through. Reading a few then taking a bit of time off gives you the opportunity to really consider each story then go back in for more.
Even if this book doesn't land a spot in your bathroom, I highly recommend taking your time to read Difficult People, don't push through it, read a bit then put it down and savor it.

Harry Potter the Books/ the Movies

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

I first became interested in Harry Potter when the fifth book came out and I was working at Barnes and Noble, everyone was into it and I hadn't even tried to read it, so I picked up the first in the series and I was hooked. I read through all five of the books that were out at the time and was waiting on the edge of my seat just like everyone else for the sixth. And have since read each of the last two books as soon as they came out, I am even proud to say I was dressed as McGonagall for the release of the sixth book and purchased it at midnight the night of the release.

When the movies started I was right there waiting again, I was really happy with the first two movies as a matter of fact I think they are two of the best book to movie translations I have ever seen,then the third movie happened and I was seriously disappointed. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was my favorite book and now with Alfonso Cuaron directing and all the things they just simply left out of the movie it was the worst of all the movies so far, I was so disappointed. After that major fail in the movie department I kind of lost steam to see the rest of them, sure I have seen them and enjoyed them but I don't run out to the theater to catch them anymore I just wait for the the DVD or for them to come out on iTunes, then watch it at home. I do feel a little bad about this because I really love the world of Harry Potter and really want to support that but I just can't seem justify the effort.

That being said I hope the Deathly Hallows changes my mind, I really want to get back that lust for the movies that I had in the beginning. I love that they are breaking it into two movies, there is so much going on this way they can get it all in, I hope.

This takes care of one requirement for the Read the Book See the Movie Challenge.

Book Review - Talk to me Like I'm Someone you Love by Nancy Dreyfus

Sunday, June 13, 2010

I received Talk to Me Like I'm Someone You Love: Relationship Repair in a Flash by Nancy Dreyfus recently for review.
I was excited to read it but again it took me a while to get to it, not sure why... anyway. My husband and I communicate very well so I thought this book was going to be a breeze which it was for the most part but there were a few surprises. I think the biggest thing I learned from this book is you can never stop trying to improve your relationship. Just like life in general the moment you become complacent is the moment you or your relationship begins to deteriorate. In life it's your memory, your reaction time or your flexibility in a relationship it's trust, loving physical touch and meaningful communication. Either way it is each of our job's to seek out new and better ways to live, to get out there learn new skills and create experiences that keep our minds, bodies and spirits engaged. If anyone expects to have what can be considered a good and lasting relationship you must stay engaged in that relationship.
With that said it is naive to ever think that you don't need to read relationship books because "my relationship is fine." Talk to me Like I'm Someone you Love is basically a book of flash cards. One liners, if you will to keep the lines of communication open between you and your partner, Each card helps to put into words the feelings you want to convey but for some reason just can't get across to your partner. Each card is accompanied by a page or so of explanation as to when and why each card might be used. As it turns out I didn't find a lot that my husband and I need to work on but I this book did give me a whole list of new phrases to work into conversation that will help to get my point across without making my husband feel belittled or that I don't love him. Even though while in the heat of an argument it may feel like your partner doesn't love you the truth is that they do and it is important to let them know that without having to forfeit your opinions. this book gives a lot of great ideas on how to do just that.

Product Description

The most crucial relationship advice book since Men Are from Mars." - Erin Meanley,

A groundbreaking, interactive relationship tool that literally places in the hands of couples the power to transform chronically frustrating relationship dynamics.

We've all been there. A conversation with a loved one escalates into conflict. Voices rise to a fever pitch and angry, accusative words fly through the air. At times like these, it seems impossible to find the magic words that will lead to healing. Enter Talk to Me Like I'm Someone You Love.

A psychotherapist with decades of experience in counseling couples, Nancy Dreyfus hit upon the revolutionary practice outlined in this book during a couples-therapy session in which a wife's unrelenting criticism of her husband was causing him to become emotionally withdrawn. In the midst of this, Dreyfus found herself scribbling on a scrap of paper, "Talk to me like I'm someone you love" and gestured to the husband that he should hold it up. He did and within seconds the familiar power differential between the two shifted, and a gentler, more genuine connection emerged. Dreyfus was startled, then intrigued, and then motivated to create a tool that could help others.

This elegantly packaged spiral-bound book features more than one hundred of Dreyfus's "flash cards for real life"-written statements that express what we wish we could communicate to the person we love, but either can't find the right words or the right tone in which to say it. The statements include:

*Taking responsibility: "I realize I'm overreacting. Can you give me a minute to get sane again?"

*Apologizing: "I know I've really hurt you. What can I do to help you trust me again?"

*Loving: "You are precious, and I get that I haven't been treating you like you are."

A one-of-a-kind, practical relationship tool, Talk to Me Like I'm Someone You Love will help couples to stop arguing and begin healing.

Book Review - Secrets: You Tell me Yours and I'll Tell you Mine, Maybe by Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein

Friday, June 11, 2010

Secrets: You Tell Me Yours and I'll Tell You Mine Maybe picks up just a few months after Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein's first book, The Truth left off. Again written in diary form Dr. Holstein does a wonderful job of taking us into the mind of a barely teenage girl.

In Secrets, our heroine is facing many new challenges, a new house, a new baby sister and new school. Along with a new boy to crush and new friends to make it's going to be an emotional roller coaster of a year. The teenage years are such a crazy time of life and yet everyone deals with many of the exact same issues finding a way to connect and not feel alone in those emotional times is important.

I love the way Dr. Holstein creates a character in Truth and Secrets that is so full of teen troubles bubbling with emotion but at the same time familiar and approachable. Not a thing is lost in the transition from book one to book two of The Truth For Girls Series, Secrets is a perfect continuation. As an adult reading this book my favorite part comes near the end when Rob's Father turns out to be the waiter from the'll just have to read it to see what I mean but it's a great little example of how life comes full circle.

Bottom line is both Truth and Secrets are great books for girls whether they are preteens, teens or Mothers looking to relate to their daughters.

I received this book to review as part of Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein's book tour with Pump Up Your Book Promotion.

Book Review - More Information Than You Require by John Hodgman

Thursday, June 10, 2010

I downloaded More Information Than You Require by John Hodgman through my local library's Overdrive system. If you aren't sure if your library uses Overdrive then you should definitely ask, it's an online database that allows you to download titles for listening and reading right from home using nothing but your library card. It doesn't cost anything and you get to check out the titles for 14 days then they automatically erase but you can always check them out again if you aren't finished yet. It's great!

Anyway back to More Information than you Require, having never picked up the paper copy the first thing that comes to mind is DON'T. There are things in the audio edition that you simply could not get in the paper edition. Like Paul Rudd, he's there seemingly through the entire recording sleeping in the corner because after all he was originally tapped to read the audio book then John moved some things around and was able to read it himself. Alas Paul needs the paycheck and so there he is. Also Jonathan Coulton, I just discovered Mr. Coulton and I like him very much. To top off these voices as well as quite a few more I didn't even mention here, there are two wonderful addition to the end of the audio book.

The first is John Hodgman and Ricky Gervais mostly just talking though they start off reading the blurbs from the back of More Information Than You Require. The second addition that you simply could not fully grasp in the traditional paper edition of the book is John Hodgman on stage reading 700 Moleman names along with their occupations accompanied by Jonathan Coulton on guitar. They take over an hour to read and make me wish I was in the live audience to really be part of what must have been a truly magical experience.

If you enjoy humor then you should listen to More Information Than You Require. If you don't enjoy humor, then you should lighten up. Life is short, listen to John Hodgman and laugh.

Begin your new lighter life by watching this video of John Hodgman discussing his book on BoingBoingTV.

Book Review - The Survivors Club by Ben Sherwood

Wednesday, June 9, 2010

We all want to be in the Survivors Club. Ben Sherwood decided to find out what the people in The Club have in common, what sets those people apart and keeps them alive. The Survivors Club: The Secrets and Science that Could Save Your Life aims to show us the little things (and sometimes big things) that determines who beats the odds and who surrenders when facing a crisis.

Through sharing stories from survivors with a bit of science worked in to back them up Sherwood gives us tips on how to prolong our own lives in general and especially how to keep our heads on straight during different kinds of trying situations. We find our true selves when faced with a crisis. This book is a collection people each facing their true selves. We have the opportunity to benefit from the qualities each of these people had that got them through their worst moments. The question is do we actually have the ability to teach ourselves these qualities? The qualities that these other people seemed to already poses when they faced their crisis.

Read this book, learn if you have what it takes or if you can cultivate what it takes inside you.

The New Yorker's Best 20 Under 40

Sunday, June 6, 2010

The New Yorker magazine publishes a list of the 20 best fiction writers under age 40 every few years, actually it's been over a decade since they published their last "20 under 40" list. This list is just begging for a reading challenge, I mean come on it's a list of the best up and coming fiction writers of the day and there is so much to choose from. Chris Adrian's novel trend toward surrealism, Nicole Krauss already has two novels that have been optioned for films and Philipp Meyer has had his work compared to Faulkner. These are three totally different types of authors with one big thing in common, they are really good.

Book Review - Donner the Western Dragon by Suzanne Davis Marion

Saturday, June 5, 2010

I received Donner the Western Dragon: A Hero's Tale by Suzanne Davis Marion for review.

This book is very cute, as soon as we opened the envelope with this book inside my son pointed, smiling and said "dragon!" With a reaction like that Donner gets points right away.

This book has quite a few more words than the books we usually read but my little guy stuck with it the whole way. He was interested in the story and the illustrations kept him excited to turn the page.

Product Description

Donner the Western Dragon lived in a cold northern forest with his parents, brother and sister, and several other dragon families. Western dragons were noted for their warlike and fierce demeanor. The young dragons spent much of their spare time in rough-and-tumble games, snorting fire at one another, wrestling and fighting. While all the other young dragons were tumbling about and breathing fire all over the grass, flowers and trees, Donner much preferred romping and playing with his best friend, Una. Everyone found it strange that Una should be Donner’s best friend, as Una was a unicorn, an animal noted for its gentle disposition. Donner’s father and the other dragons mocked Donner for his quiet demeanor. They accused him of behaving like a peaceful Eastern dragon. He was an embarrassment to them. In an unexpected twist of fate, Donner’s unique personality and talents enabled him to intervene in a frightening situation, and become a hero, appreciated and commended by all.

Book Review - Dead and Gone by Charlanie Harris

Thursday, June 3, 2010

I am so happy the series is back on track in Dead and Gone: A Sookie Stackhouse Novel Charlaine Harris works her magic. I was pulled into the story from the very beginning. So much happened right up front that I was instantly invested.

I usually look to the product information on Amazon to copy here in order to share a little of the story with you but this time both reviews were..well bad. The Pulisher's Weekly review thinks fans will be disappointed which I totally disagree with and the Booklist review gives away way too much information while at the same time calling Sookie a psychic. PSYCHIC!! have you never read the books? Sorry, for being upset about that but if you have read these books you know what I mean. How many times has Sookie had to say she isn't a psychic but in fact a telepath?

This one completes the official Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge. When it started there were only 9 books in the series now there are 10 which I am trying to get from the library but I am number 14 on the hold list and the challenge ends June 30th. Hopefully I will be able to finish the 10th by then but if not I am still happy to complete this challenge as it was originally written.
