Wildflowers of Texas by Michael Eason
Wildflowers of Texas (A Timber Press Field Guide) - Michael Eason

When my oldest Daughter was a toddler, we stayed in Texas with my sister for a while. The state has so much beauty I would of loved to just stayed there forever. Just driving down the road while the wildflowers are in bloom would make anyone want to live there. There were so many colors, shapes, and sizes of the flowers, and so many fields just filled with stunning flowers.

 

This books takes an in depth look at each and every wildflower you will find in Texas. There is a picture of each flower and a short description of each one. It gives you the official name as well as all the other names each flower is known as. It describes the plant, how many flowers per plant or bunch on the plant, the flower size, the height of the plant, and the best parts of Texas to find the plant. There are several plants with diffrent variations and all of those are also picture.

 

Not all of these plants are only found in Texas. So I see in my yard and driving down the streets in my town in Florida, as well as other states I travel too. So even if you don't live in Texas this book would still be nice to have to show some of the wildflowers in your own state.

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

Enemy
Enemy (On the Bones of Gods Book 1) - K. Eason

Enemy was a book that divided me. On the one hand I was liking it, even though the story was not that special and fits very well in the well established fantasy genre. On the other hand, the writing was, for want of a better word, quirky and it didn't always work for me. So much so, that I still am undecided on this book.

But, my interest has been sparked and I might give the second book a try as well.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Fresh familiar and lesser-known fairytale retellings with a focus on interiority
Brave Red, Smart Frog: A New Book of Old Tales - Rohan Daniel Eason,Emily Jenkins

Disclaimer: reviewing an uncorrected proof/eARC via NetGalley.

This covers some well-known (Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel & Gretel, Snow White) and lesser-known fairytales with the author's unique spin and a sketched piece of artwork heading each tale. The author's notes suggest that she focused on motivation, which jives with my impression that these retellings are a little more focused on character motivation and interiority than some traditional versions, with perhaps a splash of feminism/female initiative. I did enjoy them, but placed alongside recent retellings-with-a-twist/twisted fairytales like Ransom Riggs's and Leigh Bardugo's, they come across a little bland. The language is not particularly gripping or lyrical (not picture-book style), and with one illustration heading each tale, it's not a child's bedtime book. However, as kids lit/MG, they're a nicely rounded-out variation.

I'd have liked to see more of a storybook-format with more illustrations for child readers (& those of us who just enjoy the pictures~~), but generally a nice edition.

Nowhere to Turn
Nowhere to Turn - Lynette Eason You will want to murder Kurt (spoiler: he is already dead) the entire book! That being said, the second installment of the Hidden Identity series brings you on a wild journey to escape multiple sets of killers and a psychotic stalker who is more delusional than can seem possible. Dani and her poor son Simon think now they're free to live normal lives; having escaped a abusive husband/father. WRONG! The tomfoolery has only just begun. This book has so many crazies popping up you'll think it's a criminal minds episode on steroids.

I gave 4 stars for lack of back story. I am not sure if Christian authors have a page limit or what but they seem to limit the back story. I just want to know how you got here to the story, even if it's by flashbacks.
