If you are like me, you need laughter in your life. You need a little cynicism, sarcasm and maybe even a bit of anger. But what you really need most is Aunty Acid! I got this book as a part of a huge gift bag for Christmas from a close, church friend. I love this book! No really, I love it!
Aunty Acid tells it like it is. She's real, she's over-weight and she's hilarious! She speaks on life and how to take on challenges with, insane positivity? Yeah, I think that's a good way to describe it. From computers, to wine; from being robbed to ignorant co-workers; from irritation to house cleaning- she covers it all! If you haven't seen Aunty Acid in the papers, then you need to grab this book. You will laugh. All the time!!
On to the next book!📚

Plumdog by Emma Chichester Clark is such a fun story, I found myself caught up- I almost wanted a dog again!
The story is one I'll always peek through and share with my Ewoks. It's about Plum, who's a Whoosell (a Whippet mixed with Jack Russell and poodle). He's lovable, funny, annoying and loves the smell of fox poop! Who couldn't love him?
The book isn't a story, it's a year in the life of Plum. Living in London with Emma and Rupert. It starts at the beginning of the year walks through days of his life. It's not boring in the least, because it's about a dog and his life with Emma. They go for walks, visit friends, play in the rain, everything. It's a sweet book. It may even have you look at your pets in a different light. I know I began to wonder about things with our dog, before he left us, after reading it.
Read Plumdog- you'll enjoy it, no matter how old you are! 📚

Here's another Wattpad story- but it's incomplete so I can't truly rate it the way I view my other shorts and novels. The 4th Estate by Rio Rouge, is a violent masterpiece- I was very impressed, not to mention it's a 2015 winner on Wattpad. I don't know if a Watty is for a number of reads or for the quality, but either way, the story is different, good and violent.
I've never been a huge fan of Wattpad. I found many of the accounts filled with great ideas but written, excuted in a manner so poorly, I felt like a professional! And I'm not. I didn't come away with The 4th Estate, by Ekene Ugbaja (roi_rouge). This author carried a unique story and made it work. Other than a few errors, which I was warned about in advance, I found this book carefully thought out and told.
I did find it repetitive, but the author wanted the reader to truly understand the dangers, high and chasmic lows of The 4th. It was stressed how one didn't want to be in The 4th, not even those born there but could manage to thrive. One could thrive and easily be robbed or killed as well as look at a person. You could fight as with the David and Goliath reference. And so much more.
So to begin this review, I have to say that Terri Blackstock and I are friends (not really a friendship, but you understand) on Facebook and we've traded comments a time or two, but she wouldn't know me from Adam. I can also admit, with sincere honesty, I've read another Blackstock book, but for the life of me- I can't remember the title! Sad, I know, but I remember it being so good, it got me to friend her and experience our little chat to begin with!
So when I saw the opportunity to receive another title by her, I was ready. It arrived on a Friday and I began Friday evening. Had it not been for my working on putting my bedroom furniture together and setting up my
I never thought of reading Under the Dome, by Stephen King, before October of 2015. I found the book in my favorite used bookstore, V-Stock. I found the book for five bucks ($5) and it's well-over a thousand pages (1072 to be exact)! So when I found out, Audible.com let me have the 34-hours & 29 minute audio for 1 credit- FREE, I jumped all over it!
Did you watch the tv mini-series? I didn't. I couldn't! It came on when so many of my other shows played- there was no way I could watch. I know, shame on me, but what's better than the book anyway? After this listen and review, I'm going to rent the show in Apple TV to see how the adaptation faired. On to the review!
Here it is- my next adventure is on the open waters! The Razor's Pirate Adventures by P. S. Bartlett is one you may want to check out. I love adventure as much as fantasy, horror and every other genre out there and now I can add piratic romance too. I had a feeling these books were going to be fun and I was right!!
With each read, I rated the book and then averaged them out for an over-all rating. So let's get this show on the road!
Prequel: Ivory Dawn
You know me, so you know how much I love the covers to this series! I've not seen anything like it before. The colors are rich and the pictures, though brief, are amazing! It's original and speaks volumes to me! Also, the interior of the book is gorgeous. There are illustrations and the fonts perfect for my feeble eyes. Plus's all around on this.
The story is great as well. Ivory Dawn is an introduction to Demon's & Pearls, the first novel of the series. Ivory Shepard and her cousins were trying to live a good, quiet life along a river, as farmers. Unfortunately, a group of pirates, headed by Captain Barclay had other plans. Through Ivory's skills and training given to her cousins, they not only survive the raid but win a spot abroad the Demon Sea, Captain Barclay's ship.
Ivory Dawn is a brief novella that kicks off my adventure on the high seas. I loved the book and I'm all set to go!📚
