Uncomfortable truths written in easily understood language
White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide - Carol Anderson

The thrust of this easy to read and highly informative book is that power structures in America and disenfranchised whites have one thing that bind them together, a determination to prevent African-American success. The chapters take us from the end of the civil war and the reconstruction through to the first black president in the US, Obama. It studies the gymnastics, sleight of hand, and frequently extremely violent terrorist acts involved in maintaining segregation after in was legally outlawed in the 1960s, and how a coup in Nicaragua was tied into criminalising black communities in the US. The more left-wing of us might wonder at the restraint of African-Americans at times, and this book delves into the history of that and how every act of resistance in the last 350 years has been met with disproportionate, murderous punishment in order to protect white communities against even the discomfort of black success. It's a great book if you're wondering how we arrived at the BLM movement today.

Review: Caveman Aliens Series (Book 1 – 6) by Calista Skye

This is a combined review for Books 1 through 6 in the Caveman Aliens series by Calista Skye

 

Someone suggested I give this series a try. It’s on Kindle Unlimited and since I had a free subscription at the time I gave it a go. It wasn’t bad. It’s a silly alien sci-fi romance that you can read in a day. Not much plot or substance to it. Sometimes you just need something silly and with no substance to read.

 

The books are an alien abduction survival type read. The books are all a little bit silly. They are slow moving in parts and a bit choppy.

 

The concept of the Jurassic planet was interesting. It’s a planet with dinosaurs, weird bugs, plants, and Caveman. Their are no women on this planet.

 

When the series starts we meet several different women who are all College age students working on a project when some aliens come to earth and kidnapped women only. Those aliens that kidnapped the women end up crash landing on this Jurassic plant. The women are trying their best to survive on this Jurassic planet and soon learn they aren’t alone.

 

The romance in each book is very quick. Each women ends up being kidnapped by a different kind of Caveman. They pretty much fall fast and the sex is hot and primal. These Caveman end up take the women back to their tribes and we soon learn that not all the men in the tribes are good. Most of the men want to capture and force the women into being breeders aka sex slaves or the Caveman want to kill them to complete this prophecy to bring back The Women.

 

As the series goes on we learn their is a small underline plot on how these Caveman came to be on this Jurassic planet and what their purpose is or was.

 

In book five we get a brief recap of what has happened so far. This is where we learn about the underlining plot and find more women are alive and have been trapped on this star shaped land island due to a Dragon like creature.

 

In book six we learn why and how the Caveman came to be on this plant and their weird belief system. I didn’t care for book six. This is where I became all Caveman’d out. The issue I had with, six, was how slutty Delyah became. I get the weird water makes them lower their inhibitions, but this was over the top.

 

One thing that really frustrated me in this series was that each women even after they found their Caveman lover they still think they can get home. After 10 months wouldn’t it come to your mind that you aren’t getting home. Even if you do find another spaceship… How are you going to fly it?

 

As far as things go. The Caveman Aliens series was just ok.

 

Rated: 3/2 Stars

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Daughter of Rage and Beauty (Berserker Academy #1) by Amy Pennza
Daughter of Rage and Beauty (Berserker Academy #1) - Amy Pennza

@AmyPennza, #Paranormal #Romance, 4 out of 5 (very good)

 

DAUGHTER OF RAGE AND BEAUTY is the first book in the Berserker Academy series, and if this is any indication of what is to come, then I can't wait for book 2.

Elin is a half-breed, part Fae and part Berserker. She has been looked down upon by her father from birth, and now, at twenty-one, she is being shipped off to the Berserker Academy in a last-ditch attempt of her not 'sullying' the family name. Trouble is, Berserkers can be just as judgmental as her father!

I was completely engrossed in this story. I loved Hauk and the connection that grew between him and Elin. There are other characters that stand out that I hope will get their own stories. So many parts of this that I enjoyed, it's hard to narrow it down. One scene I will mention is the incredibly hot scene between Hauk and Elin. I think my kindle nearly melted. It was perfectly done, being sexy and sensuous without being gratuitous.

I found the pacing to be spot on with this, giving the reader enough time to enjoy each scene without it being stuck. The world-building was great and is one I hope to return to.

For a fun, sexy and adventurous Norse fantasy, then I have no hesitation in recommending this!

ROAD RAGE!
Road Rage - Stephen King,Richard Matheson,Raffa Garres,Nelson Daniel,Joe Hill,Chris Ryall

Whomever it was that had the idea of pairing these two stories was a genius!

 

DUEL from Richard Matheson is a classic horror tale about a man traveling down the highway, being terrorized by a maniac in a semi. This tale was a re-read for me, via audio. (This was also made into a film, directed by Steven Spielberg. You can watch the trailer here.) 5*

 

 

THROTTLE by Stephen King and Joe Hill. This novella length tale was new to me and I enjoyed it. Having paired these two stories together, I can't help but think that DUEL was the better of the two. THROTTLE was still good and a fun listen just the same. 3.5* Recommended for a few hours of listening pleasure! *Thanks to my local library for the free audio download. Libraries RULE!*

 

I am claiming DUEL for the Classic Horror category in Halloween Bingo! 

16. Classic Horror: horror fiction that was published prior to 1980
