I have a dream of a self-sufficient, sustainable boat. It feels like an insane pipedream some days; others, I can almost see how all the bits would work. Ideally, the boat would have a series of battery banks and and intelligent charging system that would charge first one bank, then the next in rotation. When […]
Wow, this was definitely a unique take on the whole vampire genre, and I enjoyed it, although, I did get confused with certain descriptions (I’m be a bit slow at times :D), believe me when I say that it’s just me, because the author does describe every type of vampire and what they call them. It’s an impressively written full book involving Max and her family, Howard and Lilly. Max is a Breed Slayer, but she’s also part vampire with the gift of being able to separate her spirit from her body, and I’ve got to say, I love a tough heroine, and she is absolutely a force to be reckoned with. There’s some surprises in this story along with lots of action, and even the gross parts are fun to read. The characters are well thought out and many leave us wondering which ones we can trust. Overall, this was inevitably a stylish and very exciting read. 🙂
The Death of Ichabod Crane
Great book about a scary virus.
I really liked this book. It is well written and really succeeds in evoking vivid images of the people and places in Egypt where it is set. The tension builds slowly and I was just sorry when it ended that there wasn’t more. I will definitely be reading more by this author.
Economic Food Storage Strategies for Disaster Survival
This is an excellent book for the fairly-new survivalist. It is not judgemental; it tells the reader to work with their own tastes when it comes to building a personal food supply. One of the big survivalist arguments over the years is the split between the advice to buy “real” and “good” foods for storage (meaning wheat berries, steel oats and so on) and the other camp, which says to buy what you usually eat. This book takes the perspective that just getting started is half the battle. However, the author does point out that if the going gets really bad…..bug burgers will keep you alive. Personally, I don’t ever want to have to eat a bug burger, but thanks to this book, I now know how, just in case. Definitely worth a read.
