New Read Mondays!

Good evening TH*S readers. Today, or shall I say night I have two books I have been reading that I would like to appropriately introduce. I would normally wait until I fully finished the books, but I think I should update you guys after every chapter.

A People’s History of the United States, is just as the title says. A book, starting from the beginning but this book is different from the rest, they include exerpts from journals including details of expeditions and findings. Zinn also wrote the book from the prospective of the working class, women, Native Americans, African Americans, and immigrant laborers.

How to Invest, is a little project of mine. I want to learn all I can about investing so that I may take that knowledge and further my investments and help those around me. This particular book has all sorts of helpful tips such as important calendar days, phone numbers, yearly goals and so forth.

Chapter reviews will be avaialable soon, as well as my normal reading genres. Make to check back for the updates, until next time TH*S readers, be sure to read TH*S.

The Dark Ones by Rachel Van Dyken

The Dark Ones by Rachel Van Dyken
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Publishing Date: August 2015
Stars: 3.5/5. E-book, # of pages:248
 
For all her life Genesis has been training and studying foe the Counsel. This Counsel is made up of a Vampire, Werewolf, Siren, and a Dark One. Now Genesis has been raised to think that she is to teach the children of the supernatural world to keep them up to date with the human world. When Genesis number is called, educating supernatural babies are the last of her duties.
Throughout the book I never felt a true connection to any of the characters. I did enjoy the romance within the book, although the details were kept at a minimal. There were a couple of twists within the story line that were a nice touch. I would have loved to get a little more background on the main characters, it would have helped with building there backgrounds, but she did provide enough to spark my curiosity.
Overall I would say that I enjoyed the book and liked it enough to want to pick-up the next in the series.
 
Until next time, make sure to read TH*S.

House of Guardians by Beatrice Sand

House of Guardians by Beatrice Sand

Published: Genre: Fantasy

E-book, 420 pages

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

I was pretty caught up with this series, I did see a similarity to Twilight with the main characters age and some of the similar circumstances. But overall for me the relationship between Sam and Laurel was one that any high schooler would want minus the life-threatening actions of a demigod, and mixed signals of their relationship. I did enjoy the history that Sand provided, I also liked that some of the ancient Greek dialect was written into to the story line. The writing style is truly what kept me going throughout the book, and I did like the story line.  While reading this I recalled just how much I love Greek Mythology, and it influenced my recent purchase of Mythology by Edith Hamilton, and Norse Mythology by Jake Jackson.

I would have loved to see Laurel make some of her own intelligent decisions. Sometimes you do need to be rescued I get that, but every single time? Also, there were moments when you could tell Laurel was going to do something completely foolish but hey that’s why Sam is his savior.

I would like to find out what happens between the two of them, I’ve seen the covers of the next two books, so I can kind of tell but I’m not to sure I am ready to sit down and read them right now.screenshot_20180105-132255387657040.jpg

Clearing off Shelves 

Went to Half Price Books this evening to turn in some books, I felt good about clearing some of the books off of my shelf. Downside to visiting Half Price Books, I left with the same amount of books as I went in with. I promise I had good intentions, but the deed is done stayed tuned for pictures.
