Awesome!
Clouds in My Coffee - Andrea Smith

Clouds In My Coffee by Andrea Smith is an amazing romantic suspense with a little paranormal twist.  Ms. Smith has delivered a well-written book.  Kudos to Ms. Smith for the fantastic characters in this book.  I love their personalities and interactions.  Parrish is gifted, she sees dead people.  I could go on and say more about the story, but I'm afraid I'd give the good parts away so I'll just tell you there is plenty of suspense, humor, drama and sizzle to keep readers glued to this book.  If you're a fan of paranormals, which I'm not, you'll totally fall in love with this book.  If I, not being a fan of paranormals love it, fans will too.  I enjoyed this book from page one till the end and look forward to reading more from Andrea Smith in the future.  Clouds In My Coffee is book 2 of the Limbo Series but can be read as a standalone.  I suggest reading book 1 of the series first to get the backstory on how Parrish discovers her gift.

"Chicago Eternal" illuminates the graves of the Windy City's famous, infamous, and forgotten
Chicago Eternal - Larry Broutman

 

Chicago Eternal is the newest release in award-winning photographer and historian Larry Broutman’s collection of coffee table books of Chicago-themed photography. In this gigantic, gorgeous book of full-color haunting photographs, Broutman takes on an intimate journey through Cook County’s cemeteries.

 

 

Each picture of a tombstone, chapel, or mausoleum is accompanied by text and sometimes additional photographs or illustrations that give insight into that person’s life. Featured are politicians, sports legends, inventors, entertainers, singers, and mobsters who play heavily into Chicago’s history.

 

 

There are also soldiers and children who we may have never heard of but deserve to be remembered. This book is as touching as it is stunning.

quote 2018-03-02 17:24
“For me as a photographer, it is not only the human stories but the visual richness of cemeteries that is so arresting. Photographing the images for this book has shown me how very many ways Chicagoans over the decades and centuries have found to visibly express their love and loss in beautiful monuments.” –Larry Broutman
Chicago Eternal - Larry Broutman

From the foreword of Chicago Eternal (page 9).

Cinemaps: An Atlas of 35 Great Movies - Andrew DeGraff,Fredric Jameson


I received this book for free from the publisher (Quirk Books) in exchange for an honest review.

 

I really liked this book. The idea behind it is so fun! The book consists of maps from 35 different movie worlds. Some of the movies featured include, Jaws, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, Clueless, and Guardians of the Galaxy. The maps are also not your typical flat ones. They are more three dimensional and are reminiscent of bus/subway maps because of the characters’ paths that run throughout them.

 

Artistically, each map is stunning, You can tell so much work was put into each one. There is so much detail in each map. It’s really amazing.

 

The essays that accompanied each map were incredibly insightful in its analysis. The essays don’t necessarily correlate to the map; they just talk about the film in general. I also really liked the writing style of the essays. They were easy to read, concise, and flowed nicely.

 

My one issue with this book is the size of the maps. Even though they take up a whole page, the maps are still too small to fully appreciate. Some parts are made bigger which helps, but it’s still not enough to gain the entire experience. You would need a magnifying glass to see all the little details. In person, the maps would be glorious, but in the book they fall a bit flat.

 

Together, the essays and the maps create a beautiful coffee table book that will make you want to re-watch the movies featured.
