Sisters by Raina Telgemeier

njcur, September 16, 2014

I'm not really into graphic novels. This was the best that I have read yet. Good illustration, very appropriate for the material. Sisters moves back and forth in time. I had some trouble recognizing where in time I was, but I enjoyed it anyway. A very real story of sisters growing up. I could see my sister and myself in the story. I will look for others by this author. Thank you to NetGalley for offering me an advanced copy of this title in exchange for an honest review.

The Reluctant Detective: A Faith Morgan Mystery (Faith Morgan Mystery) by Martha Ockley

A good cozy mystery. I liked Faith Morgan. I appreciated the challenges of faith that she faces. Good characters, engaging story, satisfying mystery. I look forward to reading more Faith Morgan mysteries. I hope they will expand upon her relationship with Inspector Shorter. I also look forward to getting to know the parishioners better. There seem to be some interesting folks in the congregation. Some religion more real and not so sweet as the Jan Karon books. This felt like a very promising beginning for a series. I was glad to have won this book in the LibraryThing giveaways. Thank you very much!

This is truly a wonderful book. Each blessing so beautifully worded. A great place to start meditation. These prayers of gratitude really touch my heart. I use them to start my day right and to end it peacefully and gratefully. It makes for relaxed, productive days and wonderful restful nights. These lovely meditations are easily accessible to folks of all religious backgrounds. Thank you to Image Publishing for sharing this beautiful book with me.

Archetype by M D Waters

njcur, July 15, 2014

I like the tension as the main character tries to figure out what is happening. It moves along at a good pace. The solution is surprising yet inevitable. Archetype is obviously setting you up for a sequel. I'm not sure that I am interested enough to look for the next book. I'm glad I read it. I have lots of patrons at the library that will enjoy it.

Stubby the Dog Soldier: World War I Hero (Animal Heroes) by Blake A. Hoena

Great introduction to a heroic dog. Wonderful illustration. It is good to have nonfiction titles available for our younger readers. Get them started early reading true stories. Lots of young boys will really like this one. An excellent choice for our selective readers.
