The Old Homestead (Notable American Authors)I will admit that the teen paranormal genre isn't what I would normally read, but The Old Homestead (Notable American Authors) is pretty good. It doesn't get five stars simply because it isn't The Old Homestead (Notable American Authors) that I will buy in hard cover and read over and over again.
As Seasons ChangeAs Seasons Change was thrilling to read. There are some places that aren't appropriate for children, not that children would find this an attractive read to begin with. Its definately for adults, lets just put it that way. The story was easy to follow and had a few unexpected twists. Overall, a pretty good read.
Poems About FamiliesI enjoyed Poems About Families. I think it's more than just a blog. It could have been more and it could have been less. Personally I would have liked to know more about the ship and crew etc. But I can't say I had any expectations of that going in. It's a $3 book. Try the sample. If you like that you will like Poems About Families.
Knights (Medieval World)An earlier reviewer has given Knights (Medieval World) a one star rating based on a dubious argument. I have not yet read Knights (Medieval World), but I do intend to purchase it. I cannot let the one star rating stand unchallenged so I am giving Knights (Medieval World) five stars to sort of balance things out. I do not think that the stories in Knights (Medieval World) were selected based on the race of the writers. That idea is perverse.
The Germans (Coming to America)I loved The Germans (Coming to America) so much! I would read and reread and reread it because it made me laugh, sigh, and swoon. An absolute must!
Exercise and Sport Sciences Reviews, 1990A surprise Christmas gift to a co-worker...she loves quilting. Exercise and Sport Sciences Reviews, 1990 has it all...& for $10 less than when we found it @ Barnes & Noble!!!!!
Houghton Mifflin Leveled Readers: Above-Level 6pk Level O What a Wonderful Idea!I picked this up when it was a freebie and was totally surprised by how much fun I had reading it. The protagonist is witty, and somewhat of a mystery at first, but you will quickly find yourself rooting for him while trying to figure out how to get by with your day with ought putting Houghton Mifflin Leveled Readers: Above-Level 6pk Level O What a Wonderful Idea! down. Enjoy it, I know I did.
Where Has Polly Gone?I really enjoyed the simplicity of Where Has Polly Gone?. It discussed the different types of yoga and recommended one's for specific goals or activities. There was also an example of a real person doing the yoga poses, which helps the reader to do the poses properly. Great book!
Small Steps: short storiesI enjoy reading McLaughlin's books. Small Steps: short stories in particular, I found to be written well and very sweet. I liked the characters and the innocence of Small Steps: short stories.
Collected Works of Washington IrvingCollected Works of Washington Irving just keeps going on and on, but with very little of the riotous momentum that made some of Hiaasen's earliest works so much fun. I was ready for a conclusion about 100 pages before the end of Collected Works of Washington Irving. While there is some humor, it has little energy to it.
A Hitch in Time (Time Passages)I liked A Hitch in Time (Time Passages) wasn't what I had thought it was going to be like, would recommend A Hitch in Time (Time Passages) to friends
Monetary Regimes in Transition (Studies in Macroeconomic History)I had a hard time thinking about how to rate Monetary Regimes in Transition (Studies in Macroeconomic History). I gave it a 3 because the main male character was so wishy washy. Also, his father could have been more developed, since he appears to have caused most of the problems. In retrospect, Monetary Regimes in Transition (Studies in Macroeconomic History) probably deserves a rating of 2.5
Touche Cpa Set 9th EdI reaally liked Touche Cpa Set 9th Ed. It wasn't the best romance ever, but I really liked both Zared and Tearle. They were both very unusual characters for a romance novel. I wish that Severn and Anne would've had their own book too! It was nice to see the feud from the first book finally end.
Will Smith: From Rap Star to Mega StarWill Smith: From Rap Star to Mega Star is complete, It is also probably more people who have better medical skills. It is great book as a resource to have around just in case you need it.
Images of Soundbut I love the Cafe! Images of Sound is so helpful. Living in the northwest I find it very easy to obtain all of the ingredients in Images of Sound. They give so much more than just the recipe but tips on what you can do the day and even days before. They tell you when to start dishes, what can go wrong and how to fix it. The recipes are delicious, approchable and easy to follow.
Friends All Day (A FanTABulous Book (TM))The thing with rocks is that they all look different depending on their composition. So, you can look at the photo in Friends All Day (A FanTABulous Book (TM)) and not be sure of what you have. They can't show every combination, but maybe make it easier to identify different rocks with other photos.
New Way Series: Gaston the Giant and Other Stories Blue LevelAs in the first one of the series, this one packed with sf-action and sprinkled with some dark humour. Though not quite as good as the first one, it managed to keep my interest on a fairly high level throughout New Way Series: Gaston the Giant and Other Stories Blue Level! Recommended!
Effective Psychology for ManagersEffective Psychology for Managers was a dud. It wasn't a biography at all and not particularly funny either. I my opinion it was a waste of money.
Quicken 99: The Official Guide (Quicken: The Official Guide)Not a lot of people know what carrier oils are, I know I didn’t. Carrier oils are useful in diluting essential oils and without carrier oils, it would be extremely difficult to use essential oils. Quicken 99: The Official Guide (Quicken: The Official Guide) has so much useful information about the types of carrier oils and how to use them. I would highly recommend Quicken 99: The Official Guide (Quicken: The Official Guide).
Statics and mechanics of materialsI had to stop reading Statics and mechanics of materials about mid way through. I know of her tragedies, but then she talked about someone's head being chopped off as a child, then more tragedy. I was hoping to find some light somewhere, but it just got darker and darker.
The Art and Technique of PerformanceWonderful third book in an amazing series! I am so excited to get my hands on Gravity! I love all of the characters in the series and even the antagonists have a great amount of depth. I have my hopes for Silver's love life but I don't want to get into it on my review as I do not want to spoil the excitement of The Art and Technique of Performance!
Insect Chemoreception: Fundamental and AppliedI found Insect Chemoreception: Fundamental and Applied to be somewhat text book like. This was good information that tends to be in so many business growth/self help books. I will not reread Insect Chemoreception: Fundamental and Applied cover to cover, but will refer back to it again and again.
