Death on Earth by Jules Howard
Death on Earth: Adventures in Evolution and Mortality - Jules Howard

TITLE:  Death on Earth:  Adventures in Evolution and Mortality

__________________________________________________

 

This book is horribly written (in my opinion) but some-what entertaining.  The author makes a rather poor (and unsuccessful) attempt to explore death in nature.  There is no focus to this book, no thesis or structure - there is just a collection of chapters that briefly discuss whatever random, sometimes  vaguely death related topic the author came across at any given time (I suppose this is the adventure part of the title?).  The book struck me as being more about life and the strange habits of humans rather than death.  Some of these animal stories were interesting, but all were rather superficial.  The writing style is informal, science-lite, overly chatty with too many far too personal anecdotes and opinions.  This is basically a shallow but fairly entertaining book to read if you don't feel like putting too much effort into your reading matter.

The Puritan Pirate (Pirates of Port Royal #1) by Jules Radcliffe
The Puritan Pirate - Jules Radcliffe

3.5 stars I think is a fairer rating. 

Everything goes oh too well for our characters. Even the most evil event leaves (physically) only bruises and sore muscles. Not that I am complaining, mind you. 


Another minus for me is the unfinished business. Killjoy, Chacal, Spanish in general - those are still loose ends. I almost wish there was less talk and love making.... oh, who am I kidding!

Taming the Texan
Taming the Texan - Jules Bennett Taming the Texan takes a look at love from all sides. From the heartache and grief that shadows loss to the fear, guilt and inspiration that finding new love can bring. What begins as a meeting between strangers morphs into a merging of souls. Hayes and Alexa have both struggled with survivor's guilt. Alexa has had two tragic loses in her young life and is slowly bouncing back from the most recent one. Hayes is a man haunted by events of war and comrades lost. Can a twist of fate not only help them heal, but create a family? Jules Bennett comes at love from a different angle and delivers moments that are priceless.

Winter Wishes - Fern Michaels,Susan Fox,Jules Bennett,Leah Marie Brown

Winter Wishes by Fern Michaels, Susan Fox, Jules Bennett, Leah Marie Brown Christmas Kisses by Fern Michaels Meredith is on her way to Nashville, KS after having left Las Vegas.... She was a dancer but there was always another younger one waiting to take over, especially after injuries. She meets Noah who she might be buying his grandmother's house from. She hopes to get a job and then she'd be able to afford the house. She asks what is next as he found her a house, job was marriage next? She'll take the temp job. She selects his name for the secret santa gift and everybody goes to the town party. They spend time together and she discovers what it is she wants to do with her life. Silly children's books, they'd be a hit. So many misunderstandings...predictable for the rest of the book... . Blue Moon Harbor Christmas by Susan Fox Michael, an architect had a baby with Jillian and he sent her support payments as she was going to get an abortion. 8 years later, Ontario and she's a pilot on the island. He had never seen the baby and 8 years later he wants to learn about him and maybe try to bond. They were just a party couple in college and got caught up with her pregnancy. Michael arrives and spends the holidays with the family as he stays at the inn nearby. He learns so much about not only his son Cole but his wife and her parents that they live with. He sees himself and Jillian in the child and hopes to find toys for his interests. They try to work things out as they still like one another, very much... He won't be staying long as the new year will bring him back home, to work.... Second Chance Christmas by Jules Bennett Ruby has agreed to go on a blind date-she knows him-Knox. She was a nurse in charge of the terminal illness ward and his wife was her patient. She got transferred after her passing. They agree to go ahead with the date and catch up another up to date. He wants to make her Christmas a great holiday as she had lost her father last Christmas Eve and he decorates her house for her. He is a pilot and he had joined the Navy so he's always on the move. Sex scenes that help her understand how much he cares for her. Predictable ending, bit of a twist. Plans for new series is included. . Finding Colin by Leah Marie Brown Grace is an advertisement writer and she also writes romance. Her boss Roberta needs to discipline her as she is using the computer during business hours for personal use. 3 week unpaid leave, now she has time to write her book. She is persuaded to go to Ireland and meet Colin-the main she is writing about in her book. Liked the travel and places she gets to visit... Colin, she does meet him, but there are many with the same name. Travel tips at the end. . Author bios at the end along with a featured book by each author. Received a review copy from Netgalley via Kensington Books and this is my honest opinion.

Paris Au XXe Siecle (Broché) - Jules Verne

Le mur murant Paris rend Paris murmurant.

Il y avait un journal arabe, La Sentinelle du Sahara, que les plaisants du jour appelaient un journal hebdromadaire!
