Redwall by Brian Jacques Book Review

Marin the Warrior fought hard for many years to protect those he cared about. After his last battle, he set his sword aside and sought a place where he and anybody who wished to could live in peace. He built and became legendary in Redwall. Redwall kept up the practice of a peaceful space. They welcomed anybody who wished to come in for food, shelter, and healing. Everything is going great until Cluny the Scourge showed up. He’s planning to overtake Redwall and kill anybody who does not surrender to his leadership.
I read a book in this series many years ago. It’s a book that really stuck with me. I really adored it. I thought that the entire concept was very imaginative and creative. I’ve been meaning to read the series since then. I’m glad that I’m finally able to get to. This is a beautiful fantasy tale where all the characters are animals of some sort. I believe it’s a very popular series. If not, it really should be. It’s so imaginative and fun! It’s also a very relaxing and light-hearted read.
There are some parts of the book that I feel dragged on a bit too long. There are other parts that I felt were rushed. It’s not anything that really ruined the book for me. Just left me with a few questions. Eventually, they were answered, but it would have been nice to have them answered as the story was going along rather than after the fact. This is a personal preference. I’m sure. Either way, it really didn’t ruin the book at all for me. I can’t even think of specific references to bring up if that says anything.
This book was narrated by a full cast of people, including Brian Jacques himself. It was also filled with music between chapters and specific parts of the story. It was very imaginative. If I could, I’d probably buy the entire series in audiobook. I might consider doing so one day. Right now, I’m content with just the first book. It’s definitely an adventure to listen to. I couldn’t imagine how long it took to produce this great work. I don’t even want to think about it!
This is a book I’ve been wanting to read for a long time. I’m so thankful that I’ve finally been able to do so. Eventually, I’d like to own every single book. For now, I’m just happy I was able to find them at my local library. I’d probably buy e-books or audiobooks for them. Possibly both. I always love to have an e-book on hand with audios when possible. I may not read along for the whole book, but I love having the option. Now to talk my fiancé into giving this series a chance!

My Ideal Reading Space

Once upon a time, I had a dedicated reading spot. It consisted of cushions on the floor with two make shift end tables on each side. One table for holding my books. The other for my tea and snacks. I also had a candle on each side. Sometimes on a wax warmer and sometimes to burn. I have since moved a few times and haven’t set up a new reading area. I plan to here soon. I think it would be good for me. This all got me thinking of my ideal reading area and what it would consist of.

Reading Space

Obviously the first step is a space. For me personally, I love a big cushy chair/love seat. I like to move a lot. I also like to keep table near me to hold the stuff I use while reading. I always like to have a stack of books around me so if I want to put my current down, I have something else to pick up right away.

Hot Beverage

My main go to is hot tea. I love all flavors of tea. Give me a good tea and some honey and I’m happy. However, I also love hot chocolate and coffee as well. I find a hot beverage just very soothing to have around while reading. I also keep water around as well to stay hydrated.

Snacks

I’m not sure if I’m the only one that has this thing, but I love having snacks around while I read. Even if I don’t eat any of the snacks. Just having it around is good enough. My favorites to keep around are popcorn or chips. Every now and then when I have the money to spare, I love to have nuts around and chocolates.

Candles

My favorite thing to have around is candles. I love all scents. Lately, I’ve been into sage and citrus scented candles. I alternate between burning candles and using a wax warmer. Eventually, I’d like to start making my own candles. I think it might be a bit cheaper. Especially with the way I use them.

I like to have other stuff around me, but these are the things I have to have at all times. Sometimes, I like to keep paper and pen with me on the chance that I may be inspired to write something down to talk about later. I also keep my phone around me for when I’m inspired to post to Instagram. I’d love to hear about your ideal reading space!

Book Reviews

Dead In The Family by Charlaine Harris Book Review

Sookie Stackhouse has been through it all and lived to tell the tale. She still has some lingering effects of the fairie attack even after taking blood from Eric. The most lingering effects are mental. Just when she begins to think that she can put everything behind her, she finds out that there are fairies still in the world. She’s not sure how many there are and their intentions. If that’s not enough, somebody plants a body in her back yard.
This has got to have been one of the most cut and dry books of the series. It was straight forward. There weren’t any real side trails to follow before we got to the main point. I’m not saying I haven’t enjoyed the normal set up. I’m just saying this book was different to me than the rest of the series. In good ways and in bad. I did really enjoy it though. I feel like some questions I had were answered. I still have many more, but I’m sure they will be answered by the end of the series.
I didn’t really care for the beginning. There was a long sidebar so to speak before the first chapter. I feel like it was really unnecessary to the story at hand. I mean I enjoyed having it in the story. I just feel like a couple of paragraphs in the first chapter paraphrasing all of it would have been sufficient. I also didn’t care for a scene that happened later in the book that I won’t divulge. It just made me kind of angry. I always feel like some people get mad at Sookie for things that aren’t in her control at all. I’ll leave it at that.
Johanna Parker narrated this book. She’s narrated the entire series from what I’ve seen. I’m not really fully sure on that as I haven’t really read the in-between novels. I am kind of curious to do so after I finish the series. I might even reread the series one day and include them in the order they go with the series. But I digress. She did a fantastic job. I wasn’t really surprised. She’s done an amazing job with the entire series so far. I can’t wait to listen to her narrate the rest of the series.
I won’t say this is my favorite book in the series. I don’t think I really have favorites where this series is concerned. I did enjoy the flow of it. It was a very refreshing change of pace. Not sure if I hope the rest of the series stays the same. It was an enjoyable and quick-paced read. I will say that. I still can’t believe I only have three more books to read. It’s going to be sad to see the end of this series.

Book Reviews

Styling By Faith by Tracey Moss Book Review

Tracey Moss found the work she felt she was meant to do. She put all her hard work and dedication into making sure she succeeded in everything she did in her career. She also put her faith in God. She felt so blessed with the success she was blessed with that she decided to write a book to help others gain the confidence to get success in what they are gifted to do with their life as well.
When I first started this book, I was fully expecting this very conceited person to talk about how amazing they were. I expected her to just constantly drop names and little more. I was wrong. Yes, names were dropped, but they were only put in to explain the subject of which she was talking about. It wasn’t to talk about how great she is.
I really did enjoy this book very much. I may not fully agree with everything is said in the book, but I respect Moss’s opinions and viewpoints on her blessings. I feel that the flow was very nice. There could have been things explained better here and there, but it was still very nice. It was a very easy and pleasant read. I feel bad it took me so long to read. I had to set it aside a few times for personal reasons. Life gets in the way.
I fully recommend this book for anybody who is looking for an inspirational success story. It could have been very conceited, but it wasn’t. It was straight-forward and to the point. There is not a moment in this book that I was ever bored or frustrated. I may not be fully interested in the field she’s in, but I can respect it and appreciate it. I’d definitely love to meet her one day just to tell her how much I admire her confidence.

Book Spotlight: Lights, Camera, Anxiety by Krysten Lindsay Hager

In Over Her Head: Lights, Camera, Anxiety (The Cecily Taylor Series) by Krysten Lindsay Hager


Young Adult Romantic Comedy from Clean Reads


Blurb:

Cecily wants a big life, but can she handle it?
Cecily feels like she has it all: great best friends, the beginnings of a career as a model/actress, and she’s dating her favorite singer, Andrew Holiday. Then Cecily’s best friend Lila begins to ditch her every time Lila’s boyfriend calls. Cecily feels lost, but she and Andrew begin connecting more and she’s never been in a relationship where she felt so understood. Andrew even begins to confide in her about his anxiety. Soon Cecily experiences her own anxiety on a magazine photo shoot, but she manages to impress the magazine staff. Just when it seems like all her dreams are coming true, everything comes crashing down when a photo of Andrew with another girl appears online. He swears nothing happened, but Cecily is crushed. She feels like she’s lost two of the people closest to her.
Was her perfect relationship real or was she in over her head?

Excerpt 1:
“Good luck at the photo shoot tomorrow,” he said. “You’ll be great.”
I stared out the window on the ride back to the hotel taking in all the sites. As I walked into the hotel, I felt a new air of confidence. Instead of just reading about someone going out with a pop star to some fabulous rooftop hotel restaurant and being in the big city, I was living it. This was my life and not some YA book heroine’s. Tomorrow I was off on a modeling shoot. I was living a dream and proving how I was ready for a big life. This was my destiny. I could do this.

My alarm went off and at the same time an alarm went off in my brain saying, no, I could not do this. What was I thinking? Me, model? That’s where people take photos of you for the sole purpose of other people looking at them, which encouraged judgement and evil comments. People don’t just keep those comments to themselves anymore. Oh no, they grab their phone or laptop or whatever device helps them spew out unhelpful and cruel comments on people’s appearances online for all the world to see.
My stomach felt like spewing all over the nice hotel sheets I was wrapped in. Why did I ever think I was up for this? Those strangers online would destroy me within seconds. Girls like Harlow who were born with an undeniable beauty could do stuff like this and even then, I had seen strangers criticize her online when she posted selfies.
Being anxious always made all my senses go nuts. I ate two slices of toast and then my stomach did a weird flipping thing. Oh no, not today. Looking over at the clock I realized it was almost time for us to leave. Come on, stomach. You’re fine. Just relax and…nope, time to hit the bathroom. Why can’t I just be a big girl and go to this stupid shoot which most girls would kill to do without my stomach freaking out?


Excerpt 2:
“They were talking about how they’re using unknown models right now and I mentioned how awesome you were in the video and they agreed. We started talking and they wondered if you’d want to come to New York and do a shoot for the magazine. What do you think?” he asked.
I almost fell off my bed. Me? Model? I wasn’t pretty enough for that and everyone would write in to let them know that just like they all felt the need to voice that opinion in the online video comments.
“Wow, it’s…wow.”
“I know, right? And I’m here for a few weeks recording so we could see each other. My manager said he’d talk to your parents and work out the details. You’d be working just to get exposure, so the contract would be about rights and not money—is that cool? It’s a great way to get your name out there and stuff for your book.”
“My book?”
“Your portfolio. You know, the photos people look at to decide whether or not they want to hire you for modeling jobs.”
Was I going to be modeling enough that I needed a book? Did this magazine actually want me? It sounded too good to be true—going to New York to model and be in a magazine while visiting my pop star boyfriend. Was this my life?
“I don’t know if my parents will go for it,” I said.
“Let my manager talk to them and see what magic he can work. He wants to help this magazine out, too. You want to do it though, right?”
Part of me did—the part of me that wanted a big life and to be famous and adored. The reality side of me was an anxious mess just thinking about flying out there though.
“Yeah, for sure,” I said hoping I sounded convincing.
“Great, give me your parents’ number and I’ll have my manager give them a call.”
I felt like I was having an out of body experience as I recited my mom’s cell phone number to him.
My entire life could change in a phone call.

“All things are composed of patterns…” And within the pattern of the realm of Alorin, three strands must cross:

In Alorin…three hundred years after the genocidal Adept Wars, the realm is dying, and the blessed Adept race dies with it. One man holds the secret to reverting this decline: Bjorn van Gelderan, a dangerous and enigmatic man whose shocking betrayal three centuries past earned him a traitor’s brand. It is the Adept Vestal Raine D’Lacourte’s mission to learn what Bjorn knows in the hope of salvaging his race. But first he’ll have to find him…

In the kingdom of Dannym…the young Prince Ean val Lorian faces a tenuous future as the last living heir to the coveted Eagle Throne. When his blood-brother is slain during a failed assassination, Ean embarks on a desperate hunt for the man responsible. Yet his advisors have their own agendas, and his quest for vengeance leads him ever deeper into a sinuous plot masterminded by a mysterious and powerful man, the one they call First Lord…

In the Nadori desert…tormented by the missing pieces of his life, a soldier named Trell heads off to uncover the truth of his shadowed past. But when disaster places him in the debt of Wildlings sworn to the First Lord, Trell begins to suspect a deadlier, darker secret motivating them.

In the tenth novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, Sookie Stackhouse learns that not even her psychic abilities can help her solve all the problems in Bon Temps, Louisiana…

After enduring torture and the loss of loved ones during the brief but deadly Fae War, Sookie Stackhouse is hurt and she’s mad. Just about the only bright spot in her life is the love she thinks she feels for vampire Eric Northman. But he’s under scrutiny by the new vampire king because of their relationship. And as the political implications of the shifters’ coming-out are beginning to be felt, Sookie’s connection to one particular Were draws her into the dangerous debate. Also, unknown to her, though the doors to Faery have been closed, there are still some fae on the human side—and one of them is angry at Sookie. Very, very angry.

Read by the author and a full cast
Three cassettes / 3 hours 5 mins.

When Redwall was published in 1987 it catipulted author Brian Jacques to international stardom.  Ans small wonder!  This enthralling tale is jam-packed with the things we long for in a great adventure:  danger, laughter, hairbreath excapes, tragedy, mystery, a touch of wonder, a truly despicable villain, and a hero we can take to heart.

That hero is Matthias, a young mouse who must rise above his fears and failures to save his friends at Redwall Abbey.  The villain is Cluny the Scourage, one of the most deliciously despicable rats of all time.  The unforgettable cast of supporting characters includes the stalwart badger Constance, an irrepressible hare named Basil Stag Hare, and the elderly wisemouse Brother Methuselah.

But most of all there is Matthias, seeking his true destiny in a journey that will lead through danger and despair to true wisdom.

Two wizards, 350 years apart. Can they save the realm of Paltria from Zarua’s dark past?

An ancient darkness haunts the realm of Paltria.
Apprentice wizard Paddren is plagued by visions of a city on the brink of annihilation. When his master dies in mysterious circumstances, the Royal Order of Wizards refuses to investigate.
Helped by his childhood friend, the skilled tracker Varnia, and her lover Leyoch, Paddren vows to find the killer.
The investigation leads Paddren down a sinister path of assassins, secret sects and creatures conjured by blood magic. But he is guided by a connection with a wizard from centuries ago – a wizard whose history holds the key to the horror at the heart of the abandoned city of Zarua. Can Paddren decipher his visions and save the Paltrian people before the dark menace of Zarua’s past is unleashed?

To Love a Love Triangle:
Sharpen Those Edges!
Millenia Black
When the idea for the Favorite Things Trilogy popped into my head, I honestly had no clue it would end up being about a dramatic love triangle. I’d just thought that an international chain of high-end boutique hotels bearing the names of “a few of my favorite things” was a pretty neat idea! And since Twilighty love triangles had long since saturated the literary landscape, it wasn’t the first thing that came to mind when I began fleshing out the plot. When the three lead characters did finally come to the fore, it was clear to me that their staging would be different. How so? Well, for starters, the guy in the middle wouldn’t be torn between the two gals…that’s been done. And done. And done again. So I was inspired to explore the less worn angles—Millenia Black style!
Michael Frost
Not yet thirty, he’s already suffered significant losses in his life and isn’t quite aware that he never fully recovered. Michael lives with his high school sweetheart, who’d been there to help him through the worst of it—and with whom he’s no longer in love. But he doesn’t actually realize it until he meets…
Priscilla Bauer
The gorgeous granddaughter of a Hollywood legend, Priscilla was rescued from the clutches of an abusive mother, but loses her great savior and protector when her famous grandmother suddenly dies. When she meets and confusingly falls hard for Michael, she has no idea he’s in a ten-year-old relationship with…
Amber Holland
Who’s having none of it. After growing up with an unstable mother and no father to speak of, Amber’s had Michael securely fastened over her wounds since they were teens. Still completely in love with him, naturally she’s been expecting a ring, like, yesterday…So losing him to someone else is not. an. option.
Enter Emotional Depth
So then what happens when a guy decides he needs to break up with his live-in girlfriend of over ten years but he’s clueless about how to do it? Does he walk in after work one night and say, “Hey babe, I’m leaving you. Can you pass the remote?” Or, when a high functioning co-dependent believes she’s safe and secure in her decade-old relationship, only to find out her guy has decided to leave her for Hollywood royalty…Does she take it on the chin and watch him pack? And what do you do when you find out you’ve fallen in love with a guy who’s unavailable? Do you run for the hills? Or dig in your heels and get ready for battle?
How Sharp Does it Get?
I’ve found that most love triangles tend to be rather predictable. But if I’ve done my job well here, the Favorite Things Trilogy won’t only keep you guessing, it’ll have your jaw on the floor by the end! And that’s just Book One. _____________________________________________________________________ RAINDROPS ON ROSES, Book One of the Favorite Things Trilogy is out now and available nationwide!

Book Reviews

Out Of The Dark by Gregg Hurwitz Book Review

Evan has never had a life of his own. He was taken from an orphanage at a young age and trained to be a government assassin. After years of doing whatever the government had him do, he retired from missions and went rogue. His mission became to help those who needed help. Everything was going great until the government decided that he was better off dead. Since then, Evan has been on the run juggling between helping people and fighting for his life. Having enough, he decides to take care of it once and for all and go after the president himself.
I have really invested in this story. I’m borderline obsessed. Evan is the perfect antihero. He’s dark and broody, but he has a compassionate side. His handler made sure of that. I’ve made references that compared him to the Hitman. I’m not sure it’s fully accurate, but the action in the book is similar in my opinion. I wound up buying all in audio after I sampled the first one because the narrator did such a fantastic job. I can’t even begin to explain how impressed I was! I can’t wait to listen to the next book in the series!
The biggest thing I didn’t care about this book is that it has a tendency to jump from one thing to another without major warning. This could be a personal issue. Especially since I have not experienced any other problems in the book or the series other than that. I am planning on going back and listening to these again one day. If I’m being honest, I may listen to them multiple times. They are just that good. They are full of intense action and drama.
This book was narrated by Scott Brick. I’m almost fully certain that he narrated the rest of the series as well. I can only hope that he narrates the next book and the rest of the series too. He just has this voice that makes the intense more intense. The thrilling more thrilling. It’s clever though. He does it in a way that is soothing. It’s really hard to explain that. It’s something people would have to hear to understand.
I really enjoyed this book. It is the fourth book in a series so I recommend the first three be read first to fully understand everything. When I first started this series, I thought it would be a complete bore. I thought I’d have to struggle through the book and pray that I retained any of it. I was completely wrong. Not only did I fully enjoy the first book, but I’ve also been hooked since. I won’t lie, it did take a bit to get into first. But the hook sunk deep! I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
