Review: Owls by: Matt Sewell
Owls: Our Most Charming Bird - Matt Sewell

Published by: Ebury Press, November 2014


Safety Rating: G (New rating system I am trying out...think of it like a movie rating. G means safe for all ages!)   


*I solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help me God!*


As I scrolled through the Blogging for Books website, something cute catches my eye. What could it be? A book about owls? Would I read this? Of course I would!! As if there was any doubt!

     While I finished up the last of my library books I became increasingly aware of the void I would have once those books were finished...Oh! What would I read? Would my cute little owl book be here in time? Spoiler alert: It got here in perfect timing! Coincidentally it arrived at my door while I was at my library perusing for my next haul. (Coming up in the next post!)

     This book is an informative and humorous look at the many owl species in the world! The descriptions are snarky, with interesting little tidbits thrown in the middle! The Illustrations are adorable! In fact, this book would be the perfect little book for a coffee table! (Indeed, that is where this book will soon reside!) Definitely give this book a try if you are an owl lover like I am! My sister and I love owls, it is one of the many, many reasons why I love her! (Enough about my amazing sister!)

*I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review*

Yours Truly, signing off!

Empire of Sin
Empire of Sin: A Story of Sex, Jazz, Murder, and the Battle for Modern New Orleans - Gary Krist

Thanks to Blogging For Books, I now have a wonderful copy of Empire of Sin by Gary Krist to add to my bookshelves. I am a Louisiana native who has long had a love affair with New Orleans. Krist has written a well researched tale that, to me, is as good as sucking crawfish heads. Juicy, spicy, and HOT!! Covering a thirty year period, from the Gilded Age to Prohibition, Empire of Sin is a raucous romp through the Crescent City that the devil himself would love. Good versus Evil. Politicians versus a corrupt Underworld. Krist does an amazing job of capturing the rich flavors and flawed characters that made New Orleans the glorious city it is today. If you love New Orleans, this is a must-read book!!
