Reading progress update: I've read 81%.
Sparrow Hill Road - Seanan McGuire

 

 

"We carry our own truths tucked away inside us, bright bits of glass blunted by our living flesh, and when they come into the light, we bleed."

 

Seanan McGuire has effortlessly pulled me into the life (or death) of Rose Marshall. I want to know more. I like the format of the story, the disjointed way we learn about Rose's journey.

In A Dark Alley, They Meet – Dark Remnants by L K Hill #LKHill
Dark Remnants (Street Games #1) - L.K. Hill

 

 

Oh man, no way could I resist Dark Remnants by L K Hill. I love covers that have an eye on them. Are they really the doorway into someone’s soul?

 

Cover Art:  Kealan Patrick Burke

 

Dark Remnants (Street Games #1)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Lovin’ that eye on the cover and it makes me feel like someone is watching me.Could it be the female protagonist, Kyra, or Gabe, the detective? Well, I say we all hook up and do some sleuthing.

Abstreuse City is a very dangerous place. L K Hill does a great job describing it. the homeless, the garbage, the smells and the dark, the pimps and the prostitutes.

 

 

Kyra and Gabe’s path collide when she finds out about a plan to turn the cops raid of a drug house into a slaughter house. She knew she had to intervene. And…could they be looking for the same person?

 

I’m not sure who Kyra is looking for, or why she is so curious about the dead prostitute, but I will find out.

 

I wasn’t sure if this would grab me like it did with the funny names, like Slip Mire, but I quickly got involved. Dark Remnants is fast paced and action packed, just the way I like it.

 

Kyra is hard as nails and quick on her feet, yet able to win the trust of others.She is able to read people, using it to her advantage. She looked like a junkie, from her spiky black hair to her black clothes with the hoodie and the track marks inside her elbows. Her eyes are so blue you couldn’t overlook them and she wears makeup to create a sickly pallor. She does no whining and crying, just has an intense desire to get the job done. Love a strong female character!

 

I love it!

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Dark Remnants by L K Hill.

Think and Grow Rich
Think and Grow Rich - Napoleon Hill

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The question we've all got to ask ourselves is, what's the biggest secret behind unlimited success, behind having a successful life, and behind starting and creating a successful business venture? Is it self-discipline? Passion? Hard-Work? Persistence? Setting goals? Having a dream and knowing how to define it and how to pursue it? Napoleon Hill was definitely a pioneer of self-help books and has written books that have been sold to millions of people all over the world, and he was most definitely a man of his time because of the choice of his words, and he most definitely knew something only rare people knew back then and only rare people know today. What that is, I've got my own idea, and so will you, if you'll decide to dedicate your precious time to reading this self-help classic. Who knows, perhaps you'll discover your limitless potential somewhere inside it, and see for yourself that everyone can achieve the highest level of success imaginable. I believe it's worth a shot.

Marc Lamont Hill is a racist
Nobody: Casualties of America's War on the Vulnerable, from Ferguson to Flint and Beyond - Marc Lamont Hill,Todd Brewster

Marc Lamont Hill used 'from the river to the sea, palestine will be free' at the UN.   Why is this problematic?   It's used as a call to push Jews into the sea, genocide them, and is very, very racist.  

 

His response was, woah, woah, I didn't call for the destruction of Israel - a 'free palestine' from 'the river to the sea' explicitly calls for the destruction of Israel and the denial of self-determination for Jewish people - and that phrase has been used since blah blah for multiple reasons.   Fun fact, it hasn't on both counts.   And even if it has been, it was co-opted by hamas who does want to murder all Jews worldwide. 

 

Marc Lamont Hill was fired by CNN.   Temple University is looking for a loophole to fire him despite his tenure, from what I understand.   Everyone is now saying that criticism of Israel isn't antisemitc.   It can be criticism that isn't racist.   That is not what Marc Lamont Hill did. 

 

So I'm pleased with CNN, regaining faith in humanity, and wish Temple U well on their quest to wash their hands of this vile racist.

Review: The Haunting of Hill House
The Haunting of Hill House - Shirley Jackson,Bernadette Dunne

This was creepy and scary without gore or jump scares.  It was almost more psychological because there was never a solid presence or any one thing to fear like in a slasher film/book.  It's like going into a dark basement alone at night.  Logically you know there is nothing there that can harm you, but you still get the wiggins.  It's the not knowing that freaks you out because your imagination can conjure much worse things than what's actually hiding in the shadows.

 

Clearly there was a presence haunting the house and it tormented Doctor Montague and his group of young assistants--to a bad end for poor Eleanor.  The house seemed to be an entity itself and it sucked Eleanor in--bewitched her.  

 

Very well written, interesting characters.  I have to assume that the author meant for readers to hate Mrs. Montague, because she was just a nightmare.  I wanted bad things to happen to her in the house.  With the other characters [Doctor Montague, Theodora, Luke, Eleanor] you could see both their endearing, and annoying qualities.  And overall enjoyable listen.
