Gods of Howl Mountain
Gods of Howl Mountain: A Novel - Taylor Brown

Growing up in the South, it was impossible not to hear the stories of secrets, bootlegging, faith healers, and the like. One look at the cover and blurb for this one and I was anxious to dive in, and dive in, I did - only to dive right back out several times. The idea for this one was certainly intriguing, and Brown does know how to paint a scene with vivid descriptions - of everything. While I do appreciate setting a scene and giving the reader a detailed picture in their mind, the gripping story I was hoping for got a bit lost in the details. The characters were rather one-dimensional and stereotypical, and while there were secrets to be discovered, without that connection to any of the characters, I was never able to immerse myself in the story. In the end, I had spent more time setting this one aside for later than reading it. Quite possibly, this just wasn't the book for me. I once heard someone say that no two people ever read the same book, and that is about as accurate as it gets, so if the description for this one appeals to you, by all means, give it a gander.

Zero Limit....
Zero Limit - Jeremy Brown

“Let me ask you. How do you think the situation looks?” (Alex) 

        “I’ll let you decide once I show you all the data,” Sara said. “But if I were you, I’d consider relocating.”

“To where, exactly?” (Alex) 

         “Start by leaving the planet and work your way out from there." (Sara)


That was one of the funnier dialogues from Zero Limit, well I thought it was funny. When I read it, it cracked me up! I could not stop laughing. : ) 


On to the review...


Zero Limit is about a a Moon-born woman named Caitlin Taggart that ended up  separated from her daughter when politicians on Earth restricted anyone born on the Moon to return back to Earth. She ends up obtaining a job on the Moon, leading a ragtag crew of miners while she's biding her time waiting for either a favorable legal outcome or a lift in the travel ban. Just when she's lost almost all hope in seeing her daughter again, a mining company big-wig, offers her a guaranteed return trip to Earth if her and her crew will complete one job for him- one very illegal and dangerous job. With no other options left and a "how hard can this be for the best miners on the moon" attitude, Caitlin and her crew accept the offer -- and not one, but many things, go very, very wrong...



Sounds good huh? It is, but when you first start reading the book, if you're like me, you'll find the story a little bit dull because there's quite a bit of 'telling' instead of 'showing.' As the story progresses and the action increases, I got further absorbed into the plot but the excitement level does fluctuate back in forth until they start "the job," then it increases a few notches. If you like space related stories and a strong-willed heroine, I would definitely give the story a try. The second half of the book, more then makes up for the slow start.


*I received this ARC from Goodreads FirstReads in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

Knitting Socks
Knitting Socks for Beginners: Quick and Easy Way to Master Sock Knitting in 3 Days (Sock Knitting Patterns in Black&White) - Emma Brown

Like I explained in another post, I received 2 skeins of sock yarn and I want to make myself some socks and I love patterns, pattern books and I especially like books that help me to understand what I need to do to make socks. This book breaks down all the ways to make socks and all the tools, all the yarns and even has some patterns in it to help along the way. It was good to revisit this book.

One Lucky Cowboy (Lucky) Carolyn Brown
One Lucky Cowboy - Carolyn Brown


A woman on the run. A granny with a plan and a suspicious yet attractive man. One Lucky Cowboy is not an average Carolyn Brown novel. Jane and Lucky are complicated. Love may not be on their minds but Granny Nellie make sure is on her agenda. Jane has danger on her mind. Lucky has suspicion in his heart. Nellie has romance on her mind. Who will be the victor in the end? Ms. Brown brings her signature humor to the table while cooking up her own personal blend of intrigue. There are times it falls a bit flat on the mystery end, but the romance never misses on charm.
