Website Features to Trash in Your Homepage

Your website is the heart and therefore the foundation of your business and marketing strategy, and as such, it's important to keep it fresh, exciting, and up-to-date. It's important that you always review, analyze, and modify your website. Avoid too many social media icons, especially if those profiles are inactive and outdated. You can add a professional photo which will speak volumes about your business and design it to be informative and pleasing to the eye. If you've got any special promos or product features, make sure that those are the things your customers will see. Your website is one of the most crucial marketing tools for your business, and if you are planning a redesign, you don’t have to do it by yourself. Trust the experts at the web designing company in Salt Lake City, UT to ensure that your company’s website attracts visitors and creates a user-friendly experience.

Batman by Marie Lu
Batman: Nightwalker (DC Icons Series) - Marie Lu

 

This is part of the DC Icons series and the first book that I read of the series. It was okay. I like the story of Batman and I enjoy the Gotham tv show. I watched the original Batman tv show when I was a kid and I've seen all the movies. I also love Marie Lu, but I found this book just ok. It wasn't boring or bad or anything - just okay. I think I've used up my quarantine creativity for today.

 

I will read more of the series, just to see what they are like and since they are all by different authors maybe I will like others more. We will see. :)

Zombie Science by Jonathan Wells
Zombie Science: More Icons of Evolution - Jonathan Wells

TITLE:  Zombie Science: More Icons of Evolution

 

AUTHOR:  Jonathan Wells

 

DATE PUBLISHED:  2019

 

FORMAT:  ebook

 

ASIN: B06Y398ML7

________________________

DESCRIPTION:

In 2000, biologist Jonathan Wells took the science world by storm with Icons of Evolution, a book showing how biology textbooks routinely promote Darwinism using bogus evidence—icons of evolution like Ernst Haeckel’s faked embryo drawings and peppered moths glued to tree trunks. Critics of the book complained that Wells had merely gathered up a handful of innocent textbook errors and blown them out of proportion. Now, in Zombie Science, Wells asks a simple question: If the icons of evolution were just innocent textbook errors, why do so many of them still persist? Science has enriched our lives and led to countless discoveries. But now, Wells argues, it’s being corrupted. Empirical science is devolving into zombie science, shuffling along unfazed by opposing evidence. Discredited icons of evolution rise from the dead while more icons—equally bogus—join their ranks. Like a B horror movie, they just keep coming! Zombies are make believe, but zombie science is real—and it threatens not just science, but our whole culture. Is there a solution? Wells is sure of it, and points the way.

Some Thoughts: Wonder Woman Warbringer
Wonder Woman: Warbringer - Leigh Bardugo

Wonder Woman: Warbringer

by Leigh Bardugo
Book 1 of DC Icons

 

 

Daughter of immortals.

Princess Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters.  But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mortal.  Diana will soon learn that she has rescued no ordinary girl, and that with this single brave act, she may have doomed the world.

Daughter of death.

Alia Keralis just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea.  She doesn’t know she is being hunted by people who think her very existence could spark a world war.  When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.

Together.

Two girls will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer.  Tested beyond the bounds of their abilities, Diana and Alia must find a way to unleash hidden strengths and forge an unlikely alliance.  Because if they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.



Leigh Bardugo is a solid and wonderful author, which is one of the reasons why I'm forever following her writing, and always excited about all her new releases.

Wonder Woman takes the famous super hero and gives her story an interesting new twist, by presenting her as a teenager, full of insecurities and ambitions, going on a journey to prove herself to her sisters and her mother as an Amazon, and dropping her in present-day New York filled with cars, phones, internet, and all sorts of fancy technology.  I love that Bardugo takes this bit of backstory of the Amazon princess, the fact that she is different than the rest of the Amazons, sculpted from clay and given life on Themiscyra, as the push to propel her story line in this book.

The premise was extremely promising, and as per usual, Bardugo gives us a ragtag band of heroes who fall together to somehow save the world.  The banter is wonderful, the characters created wonderfully with an excellently diverse group of kids, and the interactions are all fun.

Unfortunately, the book DID take some time to get into, and then might have gotten a bit complicated after the climax at the end.  I'm also not quite sure that we were able to focus on Diana all that much, as she was a bit overshadowed by both Alia and Nim.  This story, I felt, had set out to be a tangential story line in Diana's journey to becoming Wonder Woman, the superhero, but I feel like it ended up turning into a story outside of the Wonder Woman saga.  In fact, this book could have been about any other young teenage hero setting off on a journey, with a Greek mythology backdrop, and it would have still worked.

This book didn't need a Wonder Woman basis, and it felt more like we started with Diana's story, but ended up telling another adventure journey instead.  And while I DID enjoy the conflicts and loved the side characters, it sometimes felt like there might have been too much going on, and that the characters were all not as developed as I feel like Leigh Bardugo is capable of.

Nonetheless, as the story picked up, it was easy to get drawn into the world of Wonder Woman: Warbringer, and easier to want to know how our band of heroes would finally save the world.

On a side note, I will admit that I got taken aback by the turning point in the end... and as yet am not quite sure how I felt about it.

Wonder Woman: Warbringer
Wonder Woman: Warbringer (DC Icons Series) - Leigh Bardugo

Wonder Woman as a teen! I liked that this showed her insecurities and her growth throughout the book. Alia is a Warbringer and that title means exactly what it means. People are after her either to kill or use her. There is a lot of Greek mythology in this one and I thought that was refreshing.
I enjoyed the interactions between Alia, Theo, Nim, and Jason. I have to admit I didn't see a certain someone's betrayal coming. This works as a good companion to the movie Wonder Woman (IMO).
For Ripped Bodice Summer Bingo: title includes character's name square.
