A HILLCREST WITCH MYSTERY: ARC REVIEWS

Amorette Anderson is one of my new favorite authors. She writes books in the genres categorized in Cozy Mysteries, Romantic Comedy and Romantic Suspense by Bookbub and on Goodreads they have her genres listed as Mystery, Fiction and Romance. Pretty much the same on both sites. Her books are fun and easy to read. Amorette’s picture is above. She is on BookBub and her BookBub link is Amorette Anderson’s BookBub Profile Link in case you want to check her BookBub Profile and possibly even follow her. She is also on Goodreads and her Goodreads Link is Amorette Anderson’s Goodreads Profile Link in case you want to check her profile out and follow her. The Order of the books Are as follows with the Prequel first.

THE PREQUEL

The Prequel, the CASE OF THE LOVE SPELL is an incredible, fun, mysterious fictional book that Penny has to try solve a murder. Will she be able to solve the murder? Then of course Penny is thinking about her crush. I just loved reading this book. Not only was it fun but there is clean romance, mysteries solve. This book is a “page turner”. For those of you who don’t know what I mean by a “page turner” it just means that the book is so good you don’t want to put the book down. The books could be read however you prefer but in my opinion, the books should be read in order starting with the Prequel. I hope you read it, I hope your kids and grandkids read it. I loved it and know you will too.


BOOK 1

power spell

Book 1, the CASE OF THE POWER SPELL is a book full of clean romance, mysterious, fun and fiction. This book is also a “page turner”. I loved this book and know you will too. I really hope you, your kids and grandkids read this. I loved this book so much.


BOOK 2

banishing spell.jpg

Book 2, the CASE OF THE BANISHING SPELL is a fun, romantic, mysterious, fictional book and the best part is that its clean. When I say clean I mean it. This book was a “page turner” and kept me wanting more. I hope you read it, your kids read it and your grandkids read it. I loved it and know you will too.


BOOK 3

desire spell

Book 3, the CASE OF THE DESIRE SPELL was so much fun to read. Maybe it’s because I really liked Penny and her cat Turkey. This book was not only fun but it was romantic in a clean way, mysterious, family oriented. I can’t tell you how much I loved this book. I really hope you read this book, your kids read it and grandkids read it.


BOOK 4

trust spell

Book 4, the CASE OF THE TRUST SPELL is a fun, romantic, mysterious , clean and is the last book until Book 5 comes. There will be a Book 5 but it’s coming soon and isn’t published yet. I just loved this book as much as I loved the other books and that’s a lot. I hope you read this, your kids read this and your grandkids read this. I loved it and just know you will too.


BOOK 5

Book 5, the CASE OF THE VISION SPELL which is coming soon I might add and knowing how Amorette Anderson’s books were, I expect Book 5 will be just as good. Since it’s not out there is no cover picture.


SUMMARY

I’m sure by now you’ve noticed I didn’t say much about these books. There’s a reason for that and that is some books don’t need much said about them because they’re that good. Well let me tell that’s exactly the way these books are. Also, In this case too much said might give too much away and I don’t want to do that. In summary let’s review Amorette  Anderson’s books are a lot of fun, family oriented, clean, mysterious, romantic(in a clean sense), easy to read and the books are “page turners”.


RECOMMENDATION & RATINGS

My recommendation for all of Amorette Anderson’s books are that I suggest to all of you is that you need to read her books. I highly recommend them because you won’t be ashamed to read it nor will you be ashamed to have your kids and grandkids read it and before you know it you’ll be recommending to your friends and neighbors. Also, who knows you’ll have yourself another favorite author.

My rating for all of Amorette Anderson’s books are 5+ stars.


FOR PARENTS

If for any reason you’re not sure about these books or any books for that matter, for your own peace of mind read the books first. Now if you look at the cover and judge it from that and say you don’t like the cover because there is a witch on the cover. That’s your opinion and your allowed your opinion. Also you don’t want your kid or grandkid(s) reading about sorcery or wizardry well let me assure you that Penny is a good witch and Penny is more into knitting than sorcery or Wizardry. But staying on this subject of wizardry or sorcery, brings me to ask you the parent or grandparent this question. The question I must ask has your kid(s) or grandkid(s) read the Harry Potter books? If so then let me kindly tell you something and that’s that Harry Potter books are more into wizardry and sorcery than these books are. If you have questions then be a parent or grandparent and please read the book first.

Book review: PRANCIE’S PRAYER

Front Cover

Title Of Book: PRANCIE’S PRAYER

Author: Ellen J. Pilch

Published: September 12, 2018(Kindle Edition)

Publishing Company: Mirror Publishing

ASIN: BO7HB95KKT

Who Can Read This Book: Everyone

WELCOME AND INTRODUCTION

Welcome Everyone to our site. We really appreciate those who have been reading and following us for a while now. We also want to welcome the new readers and followers and we appreciate you too. If it weren’t for you all we wouldn’t be where we are today. Now on to the book, when I read a book I usually can tell if I’m going to like the book or not and how I’m going to rate it half way through the first chapter. Sometimes it takes longer. For example, if I absolute don’t like it in the first chapter, I’ll give it  to chapter 3 or 4 usually and decide whether to go on reading the book or make it a DNF(Did Not Finish). Sometimes the book just doesn’t live up to hype even if it had a movie made out of it.

WHAT I EXPECTED 

I follow this authors blog so I had an idea what to expect. Since her blog is so great and writing style very good, I set the bar quite high for this book PRANCIE’S PRAYER. I guess knowing what I did I expected a very good book and at least a 5 star rating if not higher. Well guess what? I wasn’t disappointed. In fact, It was better than I expected. I must say that doesn’t happen often with books with me.

WHAT I LIKED

Well what can I say. I liked everything about this book. The way the book was layed out from beginning to end, How the story was told, Most of all I liked it because there was no bad language. 

WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE

Noop. Can’t think of anything although maybe just a suggestion. This isn’t a complaint, I loved the book but thought it could have been longer. However, the way this story was told and layed out the length was perfect. I hope I get to read the print version some day.

RECOMMENDATION & RATING 

I recommend everyone buy, read and review this book. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. I know I wasn’t. This book is made so kids can read it too. I give the book PRANCIE’S PRAYER 12 STARS.  OK, I know you can go up to 5 stars but really this book deserves 12 stars it’s that good.

Please buy this book. WHY? Because from October to December all the royalties are going to a charity called Boston’s Forgotten Feline’s. It’s a win-win situation you buy the book the charity gets the royalties and you get a Fantastic book by a fantastic author.

BOOK REVIEW:When Stars Come Out

WhenStars

Author: Scarlett St. Clair

Title: When Stars Come Out

Genre(s): Urban Fantasy, Young Adult

Publication Date: October 31, 2018

Rating: 4/5 Books(📚📚📚📚/📚📚📚📚📚)—Actually, I would give this book 4 1/2/5 books or stars but no way to do that.

WELCOME

Hello And Welcome Everyone, I am so excited because I signed up to review an ARC(Advanced Reader Copy) of When Stars Come Out and I received an email that I was approved. Goody, Goody Gumdrop.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR(FROM GOODREADS)

Scarlett St.Clair lives in Oklahoma with her husband. She has a Master’s degree in Library Science and Information Studies and spends a lot of time researching reincarnation, unsolved murders and Greek mythology-all of which made it into her debut novel, When Stars Come Out (OCT 2018). To get more on Scarlett St. Clair you can go to SCARLETT ST. CLAIR’S GOODREADS PROFILE.

WHAT I EXPECTED

To be quite honest, I really didn’t know what to expect this type of book in these genres mostly because it’s the first time ever reading Urban Fantasy and Young Adult(YA) for me. I’m always up for trying new genres and new authors and never know if I’m going to like them or not. I guess in a case like this I set my rating middle grade. Middle grade for me is 2 1/2 stars. Then after I read the book fully I judge to make it higher or lower. A description of the book When Stars come out by Scarlett St. Clair is listed below.

DESCRIPTION OF BOOK

Anora Silby can see the dead and turns spirits into gold coins, two things she would prefer to keep secret as she tries to lead a normal life at her new school. After all, she didn’t change her identity for nothing.

As it turns out, hiding her weirdness is just one of many challenges. By the end of her first day, she’s claimed the soul of a dead girl  on campus and lost the coin. Turns out, the coin gives others the ability to steal souls, and when a classmate end up dead, there’s no mistaking the murder weapon.

Navigating the loss of her Poppa, her mother’s unpredictable behavior, and Roundtable, an anonymous student gossip app threatening to expose her, are hard enough. Now she must find the person who stole her coin before more lives are lost, but that means making herself a target for the Order, an organization that governs the dead on Earth-and they want Anora and her powers for themselves.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE BOOK

For reading these genres for the very first time I really enjoyed reading the book. I was pleasantly surprised of how interesting this was. I liked how it was a page turner(I didn’t want to put it down), It kept my interest and it didn’t take long to read. I started reading on November 9, 2018 and ended November 11, 2018. I guess when I started at 2 1/2 stars I started to low. I also thought it may have bordered on the Sci-Fi genre but wasn’t sure. I also liked the cover of this book and it showed how much trouble this girl was having and the despair she was in.

WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE ABOUT THE BOOK

That’s easy. I didn’t like the use of the F-word and some other bad language that was used. Other than that I really enjoyed this book. I give it 4 1/2 / 5 stars. If the bad language weren’t used it would be rated about 5 1/2 or 6 stars in book. I liked it that much. 

WHY I SIGNED UP TO REVIEW THIS BOOK

I think it’s important to put this section in my review not because other reviewers do it to but because I think the author, other authors, all my readers and viewers should know why. 

In all the book blogs I follow, I have yet to see one reviewer put in why they signed up to review the book. I think that is to bad because I think readers would be interested in knowing. I know I would. 

So onto why I signed up to review When Stars Come Out because when I read the blurb I found it interesting and the cover of the book well—can we say it was catchy and right cover for the book. I know this might sound crazy but after reading the blurb and looking at the cover and well basically studying it something called to me saying you have to sign up to review this book, you have to sign up so that’s what I did.

When a book calls to me it usually ends up being a good book.

HOW I JUDGE BOOKS

How I judge books is pretty simple:

1📚=Lousy

2📚=OK

3📚=I Like It

4📚=I Really Like It

5📚=Excellent Book With No Bad Language

RECOMMENDATION AND WHO SHOULD READ THE BOOK.

First let me say my rating is my opinion only. Since it’s a Young Adult genre I would recommend this book  to teenagers and up. Be warned though there is some use of the F-word and other bad language but not much. I would let the parents use their best judgement.

Fortress Of Time: Book Review

Author: Mariah Stone

Title: Fortress Of Time – A Time Travel Romance –

Series: Called By A Viking Series

Book Rating” Adult. This book is not for children because of the sexual content.

**Disclosure** I am on Mariah Stone’s review team so I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank You Mariah.

MY HONEST REVIEW

I thought this was a good time travel viking Romance story was fantastic. I wasn’t sure what to expect and I knew what I thought of my last time travel book read and that wasn’t much. I was very happy when this time travel book was the exact opposite and was a page turner. 

I really liked how Donna who is from the 21st century goes back to viking time to teach the Viking men and Alpha-Males that woman can do important jobs and they can be depended on and not just for cooking, cleaning, warming the man’s bed  and being a servant to a man. Back in her time in the 21st century she’s a lawyer and is trying to teach the men a lesson back home too. One problem and that is that Donna’s weakness is falling in love with Alpha-Males. Can she do it? Read the book to find out. Do I recommend this book? You bet I do. I look forward to the other books in the series.

MY RATING FOR THIS BOOK

📚📚📚📚📚📚/📚📚📚📚📚(TRANSLATED 6 STARTS/5 STARS) That’s Excellent.

Caturday Art: Halloween Time

HALLOWEEN TIME

HALLOWEEN TIME  is a time of fun. Daisy Mae and I thought since we were not going to around for Caturday Art around HALLOWEEN TIME, we would share with you our Halloween artistry.  We had lots of fun making these for you(actually I made them but Daisy Mae helped in her own way). Below is our Halloween artistry.

The above picture was made on GIF MAKER – CREATE  . That’s where I got all the HALLOWEEN stickers to put on the picture. 

The above HALLOWEEN picture was finished on Bloggif – Home . However, sadly when the gif was finished and created, it took the best part out — The blinking eyes, Moving flying cat on broom, Blinking pumpkin, Blinking eyes on cat in pumpkin and Blinking and moving words. 

THIS PICTURE IS TAKEN AT OUR CAMP IN 2017.

The above picture is the picture I used to start out with before I started creating. I didn’t edit this picture.

A Recent Discovery

Thanks to my youngest niece who let me borrow some books to read I discovered new authors. I even recently discovered a new author. Who is this wonderful author I want to add to my list of favorite authors? Her name is Becca Fitzpatrick. She is the author of many books. They can be found on Amazon. I suggest you check them out. To do just that go to the link Becca Fitzpatrick Books On Amazon

My new book discovery by Becca Fitzpatrick is her book Black Ice(Hardback Edition). I loved this book. I loved this book so much I didn’t want to put the book down. Depending on the length of a print book I’m usually done with a book within a week. With this book, I was done within 3 days. 

I don’t have any of her books in my library yet but plan on getting them. Black Ice is on my add to my library list. Guess what. Something to ask for at Christmas time I guess.

In conclusion, Rebecca Fitzpatrick isn’t the only recent author I discovered but I have discovered other authors too. I’m always open to reading new authors so if you’re an author good luck too you and I hope I find your books someday. Some other authors I discovered are: Ariella Cohen,  June Foster and many others. I find many of my authors through Amazon, Goodreads and websites. I’m not an author just a woman who likes to read and review books.

My First Song

fullsizerender-1 (2)
THIS PICTURE IS TAKEN AT OUR CAMP IN 2017.

The other day I was thinking and for some reason I got the motivation to write my first song. I thought how hard could it be—right? Harder than I imagined. Then the thought hit me if you can write a poem first then all you have to do is add some minor changes. I mean I already write poetry sometimes but it was coming up with the words for the poem and the song that was the hardest.

How do the singer/songwriters do it. Must be really talented. The other day on CMT(Country Music Television) they were interviewing Toby Keith about one of his songs. The song they were talking about was “Should’ve Been A Cowboy”. This song was written in about 20 minutes. If you want to see the story behind this song you do that by going clicking HERE . The funny part well at least I thought it was funny was they said the song was written in the bathroom.  

On to my song. My song took longer than 20 minutes that’s for sure. It probably took around 3 or 4 days. I will put the poem first then the song. Then you can compare the differences in the poem and the song. I hope you like it. Also, I want you to tell me what you think of my song and poem.  ENJOY!!😺😺😺😺😺😺😺

A BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY ANIMAL SERENADE POEM

When the leaves are turning color and falling from the trees, they make a beautiful multicolored carpet over the hard trodden ground. They make the perfect backdrop and stage for all of the country animals to perform their Beautiful Country Animal Serenade for all to enjoy.

When you live out in the country and near the woods, you never know what kind of animals you will see and hear. In fact, most people when they hear an animal in the country they think of them as noisy when in reality they are just practicing to play and sing a beautiful country animal serenade.

So when the country animals come together with their instruments and talents and the Bald Eagle sits atop of a tree, it is then you know the Bald Eagle and the country animals are getting ready to sing and play a beautiful country animal Serenade.

A BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY ANIMAL SERENADE SONG

Spoken Part: When the leaves are turning color and falling from the trees, they make a beautiful multicolored carpet over the hard trodden ground. They make the perfect backdrop and stage for all the country animals to perform their Beautiful Country Animal Serenade for all to enjoy.

Verse 1: When you live out in the cou-n-try and near the woods, you  ne-v-er know what kind of an-i-mals you will see or hear. In fact, most peo-ple when they hear an ani-mal in the cou-n-try they think of them as no-isy when in rea-lity they are just prac-ti-cing to play a beau-ti-ful cou-n-try an-i-mal ser-e-nade.

Chorus: A beau-ti-ful cou-n-try an-i-mal ser-e-nade, a beau-ti-ful cou-n-try an-i-mal ser-e-nade, a beau-ti-ful cou-n-try an-i-mal ser-e-nade is what makes liv-ing in the cou-n-try so ea-sy to  do, a beau-ti-ful cou-n-try an-i-mal ser-e-nade.

SPARKS: THE BRIGHT SIDE OF GRIEVING

Death is a part of life. We all have experienced death whether it is a loved one or furfriend(pet). We cry and shouldn’t be ashamed. Crying is a positive way to deal with death. Remembering and cherishing those memories made is another way to stay positive through death. Everyone deals with death differently so never put someone down with how they are dealing with death but encourage them and give them good, positive vibes.

A TRIBUTE TO TIGGER

Tigger

A Crotchety Cougar you weren’t but

You were old enough to be a Cougar

So even though you weren’t a

Crotchety Cougar, You were Crystal’s Cougar

And I will always think of you

As Crystal’s Cougar or just

Crystal’s Tigger Kitty.

Tigger, it was a very sad day

When you went over the Rainbow Bridge.

We rescued from an environment

You should never have been in.

When we got you, you were scared

Of us and hid in my bedroom closet. 

You eventually bonded with my Mother and

I but Dad was another story.

Through your time with us you

Stayed under our feet most of the time,

You snuggled on our laps, You liked napping

On laps and you liked to play pole.

Tigger, I have so many memories of you

Including the memories of you and

Sister Queen Daisy. I am so glad

You made up with Dad before

You passed over the Rainbow Bridge.

Tigger, you were very much part

Of our family and we will

Always miss you.

Tigger, we loved you so much

That you left pawprints on our hearts.

Tigger, you have become an Angel and 

You are able to walk again and

You aren’t miserable or suffering any pain.

My sweet Tigger Kitty is now an angel and

You will always be missed.

That sweet adorable kitty that you

Hissed at sometimes, she misses you too.

Sadly missed by

Queen Daisy Mae And

Queen MOM Deputy Sister Crystal
