Review of A Revolution in Color by Jane Kamensky
A Revolution in Color: The World of John Singleton Copley - Jane Kamensky

It has been a long time since I enjoyed reading a history book as much as I did A Revolution in Color by Jane Kamensky.  This book tells the story of John Singleton Copley, the master-painter who came to prominence during the years of the American Revolution.  It is much more than a simple biography though - the book also tells the story of Revolutionary Boston, New York City, and London as Copley moved around during his life.  It looks at the world of painting and how important it was considered by most people of the time both in America and abroad.  For me, this book took a period I have read a great deal about, and it make it exciting again with new information about aspects of the period I had never really thought about.

Exotic Neurotic Review
Exotic Neurotic - Kenneth Jarrett Singleton

This work of modernist literature is penetrative. It's raw and original. Graceful, yet chaotic. I find a lot of the subject matter highly relatable. I think most people would, at least to a degree. Poetically, I love the creative themes of the poems, intellectual repertoire, rhymes, arrangements, and rhythmic patterns.

It Is Written
It Is Written - Kelvin L. Singleton This was a decent suspense novel about a writer who suffers tragic circumstances due to hateful racists, bent on killing him. It really kept me guessing as to who was responsible and how everything would turn out. I would have given it a higher rating, but for the fact there were a few times the action or crime was confusing to me, and I had to flip back earlier in the book to reread something to help figure something out, but other than that, it was a good story, with a good plot. I liked the author's use of imagery, and choice of words. There was also a romance as a secondary plot.

"Angelica and Francesca," By: Kenneth Jarrett Singleton
Angelica and Francesca - Kenneth Jarrett Singleton

Angelica and Francesca are the identical twin daughters of Pellrue, Duke of Doretay. Doretay is a state within a kingdom called Vidien, which Angelica's and Francesca's great uncle, King Oscar, rules. Pellrue attempts to keep control of his wicked, evil daughters as they keep entering his city and raising havoc by torturing and murdering the common citizens within. "Angelica and Francesca" is an excellent, dramatic play, which will never be forgotten.

Cash Kat - Linda Singleton,Christina Wal... Cash Kat - Linda Singleton,Christina Wald A book that teaches philanthropy and volunteering has it's own rewards. I haven't read it to my grand daughters yet, but I do look forward to sharing it with them.
There is also a section about money, coin, decimals, counting, & litter at the end.
Cash Kat combines civic lessons, math lessons, and a good time reading all up in one.
I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway.
