My #BoutOfBooks 18 Wrap Up and Book Review #NewToMe2017 #FlightsOfFantasy

Testament: The Trial by Edward V’Kanty @Edward_VKanty This book has strong and very explicit violence, sexual content, and drinking. It is not for the faint of heart. However, if you want a book that blends historical fiction (1665), fantasy (assuming one counts possible witchcraft and voodoo as fantasy), and erotica (including and especially the more …

#boutofbooks Bout of Books 17 Day 4

I read Rich Dad Poor Dad. A motivational book on the philosophy of finance. You need to learn what an asset is and how to acquire enough of them to have a steady passive-income — the book drives that lesson home, but doesn’t exactly give a step-by-step guide on how precisely to do it. (Though, …

#boutofbooks and #shelfie4boutofbooks on Bout of Books 17 Day 3

I finished reading: This book is more political and sociological than it is financial. Be ready for the financial side of the pro-choice/ pro-life debate. It isn’t about morals, religion, or emotion– it’s numbers and data (though the other points are brought up). It will make you wonder if abortion is a costly and violent …

#boutofbooks Day 2 Bout of Books 17

Read- Masters of the Nonsenseverse: A Get Fuzzy Collection by Darby Conley Another fantastic collection. It’s clear that Darb has a thick, rich vocabulary and isn’t afraid to use it. Bravo. There are some jokes that reference the 2012 presidential election (Bucky is a Republican, Rob and Satchel are liberal Democrats). This collection had several …

I won my copy of this excellent book from Sandra Cox’s giveaway. L. G. Keltner — Felix Was Here — The story reminds me of the Stepford Wives. It also reminds me of the book The Invasion of Tearling, the Lily parts that I loved so much. A great short story that I can imagine …

REVIEWS of books read today: “There is nothing so terrible as a story untold.” Not just writing motivation, but a quote that explains the reason for this story. The lack of world building could make comprehending this difficult for anyone who hasn’t read Red Queen. It’s a good story, an interesting one. Nice romance. In …
