Miss Mabel's School for Girls (Network Series, #1) - Katie Cross
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I've had the Kindle version of this book for a while now, but I am so bad about actually reading the ebooks I have. While vacationing in Mexico, I decided to only read ebooks and settled on this one. Perfect length for reading in a week between wading in the ocean and pool activities. 

This was kind of a tricky book to review. I liked the concept of the story, but it was a little slow to start. The whole book kind of reads like a prequel, just setting up the action for the series. Many things happen, but they all seem to just set up later events in comparison to being important in and of themselves.

The book also appears to be heavily influenced by Harry Potter. Not bad in its own right, but it's just been done so many times before. There were a few good creative twists. I did like that it was an all girls school and the focus on female power. The overall story is kind of an all-girl witchy YA mashup of DivergentThe Hunger Games, and Harry Potter

Overall, the writing was good. Bianca gets stuck in her head a little too much at times, making her narration kind of annoying, but for the most part it was good. 

There are definitely ups and downs in the story. Sometimes you are really engaged with it and sometimes it's just kind of going along. But overall, I enjoyed the book. There was a link for a free copy of the second book inside the ebook. I liked this one enough to download the second book and continue the series.

Cowboy, Cross My Heart
Cowboy, Cross My Heart - Donna Grant
What was meant to be a relaxing trip home turns into quite an ordeal for Naomi as she finds her best friend caught up in some corrupt affairs.
 
Naomi had just returned home to Texas to visit her mother and best friend, Whitney who was the reigning Rodeo Queen. Attending a roping competition with Whitney, Naomi was viewing the cowboys and everything around them through the lens of her camera. Naomi had left this world behind to attend college and begin her photography career. Being home, reminded Naomi of what she had left behind. Whitney had been acting strangely since Naomi had arrived and now, viewing Whitney through her camera Naomi could see that what she had felt, was not just a feeling. Naomi now had proof, as she clicked her camera, that Whitney was not acting like herself.
 
The struggle was real as someone tried to pull Naomi’s camera away from her. Naomi struggled to hold onto it and soon someone else was helping her. In the end, she now had the broken camera. Who tried to take it from her, they don’t know but Whitney seems upset with Naomi for wanting to investigate the matter. Seems a bit strange but with Whitney acting weird to start with, perhaps these two incidents are related? Naomi decides to develop the film which was inside the camera and that’s when events in the book start getting interesting.
 
With the pictures developed, more individuals are added to the troubles in the novel. Brice, the individual who helped save Naomi’s camera, and his family now play an important role in the novel. This was originally a short visit to Texas, but there is an immediate attraction between Naomi and Brice. Things gets pretty hot between the two of them as this investigation gets underway.
 
There are some very evil men who take advantage of their power in this book. Why they went this route is beyond me but they needed to be stopped but they had other plans first.
 
I read that this book is the second in the series but this is the first book that I had read and I didn’t feel lost as I read it. I enjoyed the story and I liked the male characters the most. They seemed more honest and reliable. There were a few parts in the story that I felt were kooky. As I read these parts I was thinking, what? Are you serious? So that just happened and I am supposed to believe that without any explanation. I wished the author would have provided some backup for all the major events in this story, it would have made it more believable.
 
Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Cross-flow Membrane Market Development and Trends Forecasts Report 2016

November 22, 2018: Global Cross-Flow Membrane Market is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR in the estimated period.Cross-flow membrane is termed as one of the efficient and sustainable alternatives for water purification techniques. Cross-flow membranes are particularly intended to resolve the existing limitations faced by the water industry and distilleries worldwide. It enables the mechanism in which the feed is put through the surface of membrane in a consistent turbulent flow. The flow then minimizes the cost of cleaning with the membrane and also augments the lifespan of membrane. The difference in pressure across the system enables the low concentration particles to go through the membrane while the flow enables passing of high concentration particles.

REVIEW TOUR, EXCERPT & #GIVEAWAY - Cross Drop (On the Edge #2) by Elizabeth Hartey
Cross Drop (On the Edge #2) - Elizabeth Hartey
Nikki
 
I’m not a saint. Never claimed to be. I’ve played the game and scored my fair share—both on and off the field. This is why I should have known better than to fall for a hockey player. But I did. I fell fast and hard.
 
Now I’m left with the painful consequences, reminded every day of how reckless I had been by giving him my heart so easily—so willingly. Dalt broke me in the cruelest of ways, and because of him I’ll never be able to love again.
 
Dalt
 
Nikki changed me. She made me want to be a better man. My days playing off the field were over because she owned every little piece of my heart…until she left, leaving behind a gnawing ache where my heart used to be.
 
Now she’s back, and it’s painfully clear she hates me, ignoring me, pretending like I’m nobody to her. But that’s just too damn bad. I want answers. I want a goddamn explanation.
 
And most of all…I want her.
