King's Cage (Red Queen #3)

King's Cage (red Queen) By Aveyard, Victoria Book 3By Victoria Aveyard

Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother's web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.

When blood turns on blood, and ability on ability, there may be no one left to put out the fire—leaving Norta as Mare knows it to burn all the way down.

This Book on CD is read by the author and she has a very nice way of orating her book. Lucille Howard is a bit of an abrupt old lady. Once one get to know her they realize that she is really a very nice person. She has gotten up in years but she is still very busy teaching baking classes to children and adults in Mason, Missouri. She also watches children for friends and neighbors. Her one neighbor needs her help in the worst way and Lucille is there to help out. She also helps Iris buy hiring her as an assistant for the baking lessons. Iris also starts a web page for Lucille. Lucille knows nothing about computers, let alone the web. Elizabeth’s wonderful writing style and a great story line make this a great book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

30 Things Every Woman Should Have and Should Know by the Time She's 30

By Pamela Redmond Satran and the Editors of Glamour

I love checklists. Its a satisfying way to make sure your goals are being met. This book is a fun way of preparing for that famed milestone in your life, reminisce, or give as gift. What makes it even more enjoyable is reading the perspectives of famed women's experiences, advice, wisdom, and observations.  It defines must-knows #1: "How to fall in love without loosing yourself" with must-haves such as # 11: "A set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a lace bra". This book can be a longtime friend to any woman no mater the age.

Two Dark Reigns (Three Dark Crowns #3)

By Kendare Blake

Queen Katharine has waited her entire life to wear the crown. But now that she finally has it, the murmurs of dissent grow louder by the day. There’s also the alarming issue of whether or not her sisters are actually dead—or if they’re waiting in the wings to usurp the throne. Mirabella and Arsinoe are alive, but in hiding on the mainland and dealing with a nightmare of their own: being visited repeatedly by a specter they think might be the fabled Blue Queen. Though she says nothing, her finger pointing out to sea is clear enough: return to Fennbirn.  Jules, too, is in a strange place—in disguise. And her only confidants, a war-gifted girl named Emilia and her oracle friend Mathilde, are urging her to take on a role she can’t imagine filling: a legion-cursed queen who will lead a rebel army to Katharine’s doorstep.

By Kimberly Mok

I am fascinated by different lifestyles and especially the tiny homes in any forms. While I doubt I will ever do anything like these, it’s interesting to see how they fit their lives into 800 square feet or less on wheels
