History of the Void Garden: The Princess of the Infinite. #bookreview

Histories of the Void Garden: Princess of the Infinite is the sequel to Histories of the Void Garden: Pyre of Dreams.  I thought that I would enjoy this book more than I actually did. There are so many questions left unanswered: Why Stephanie had special powers or what she was capable of doing? Is the waitress special? Why can’t I stay awake while reading books anymore?

This book introduced a few new characters. Normally, I wouldn’t mind but I felt like there was too much going on with several storylines.

At the end of the book, I still didn’t know what was going on at all. The ending left it open for a third book in the series.

So this book has potential but I think all of the characters and their purpose can get confusing. The story could have been written from the perspective of Stephanie, the Princess of the Infinite, and it would have been almost perfect. She is such an interesting character. I’m not sure about Sam Cushing . He’s kind of a douchebag and not especially interesting to me.

In my opinion, it’s called Princess of the Infinite and more should be written about her instead of making more characters that are not as captivating.

I think I gave the book 3 stars on Amazon. If you’re interested in reading the book, you can also find the book on Amazon.

The Best and Lightest: #bookreview

The editors at Food Network Magazine are seriously good at what they do: making food look delicious and approachable. I mean, most of the recipes look fairly easy to make even for a non-cook like me.

The table of contents has a picture of every dish. So you can look at all of the recipes and see what they look like before you even get to the first page.

My favorite part of the books, besides the photographs, are the snack time sections. Who doesn’t love snack time? The snacks are healthy – At least these snacks are healthier than what we eat for snacks at my house. Honestly, when no one is home, I eat snacks for dinner. However, now I could make one of the snacks from “The Best and Lightest” and not feel guilty the next morning.

If I wasn’t giving this to someone who really loves to cook, I would keep it for my own kitchen.

Writing a Children’s Book: Nablopomo

Do you have a book in you? Is it related to your blog or completely different?

I do have a book or two floating around in my mind. I’ve written a rough draft of two books.There might even be room in my brain for a third book. The drafts are really rough but they have potential. Now I just have to get back to the drawing board.
I’m getting closer to going back to work on it. Why does it take me so long to write such a short book? Fear of failure? Maybe. But I’ll definitely fail if I don’t write anything at all. I’m going to write an outline of chapters. Someone told me I should do that. After I’m finished writing a chapter, I can cross it off and feel motivated to move on.
The books are not totally unrelated to the blog. Both books are for children.
Several years ago, I had an artist do some drawings for the first book. It would be a shame for all of the art to go to waste. Honestly, it would be a shame if the rough drafts went to waste.
Must get back to drawing board . . .

Anasofiya Deschanel fled to Maine to escape her mistakes. She learned quickly, and violently, you cannot run from what’s inside you.

Following a series of unfortunate events, Ana finds herself drowning in the consequences of actions which left her heart cruelly divided between the St. Andrews brothers. Jon’s embrace of darkness soon turns to dangerous cruelty, while Finn’s kind heart offers a promise of love she does not feel she deserves. Between all three of them lies a secret with the potential to change everything.

When the truth comes crashing down, Ana is forced to face the same demons she once ran from. As she learns more about who she is, and the situation she’s created, these realizations drive her to a desperate decision that will change everyone’s lives, forever.

The House of Crimson and Clover

The Sullivans, a family of hard-working Irish lawyers, came from nothing and built a life they can be proud of. The Deschanels amassed incredible wealth by siding with the North during the Civil War, betraying their people. Both New Orleans families have a dark and rich history, painted with secrets, treachery, and colorful, supernatural abilities.

The House of Crimson and Clover unravels the mysteries surrounding both families, pulling us further into their tangled, enigmatic lives.

While the series is meant to be treated as one long narrative, each book can stand alone and be enjoyed without having read the other books. I’ve created pages for each of the books in the series, with story descriptions and other info.
