The Lonely Little Star & Other StoriesThe Lonely Little Star & Other Stories by Mary Beth Robb

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After reading a few books that were anxiety producing I thought this one would help ease me to sleep. I let my inner child be read to by the text-to-speech as I followed along in the book. Mary Beth Robb writes her stories in an uncomplicated way while covering some deep spiritual issues. I would have loved to read this book to my children when they were young.

Reach out and take a chance, seemed to be the theme of this group of stories. Shy people need this kind of advice regardless of age. I loved the stories about the witch who was shy and the stories about the ribbons of love. How tactile the story was. In fact, all the stories involve all of the readers’ senses as you move in life with the main characters of each story.

Learn about another point of view. If you have been raised in a certain religion here is a chance to learn how others have seen the world and life. Neither way is wrong. There is much to be learned from everyone. This would be a great place to start in learning about Paganism or Wiccan ways of life. These are the “Old Time Religions” the main theme of most religions I have seen is LOVE and acceptance. Ms. Robb’s books seem to teach that is spade!

I was so happy that Kindle has the Kindle Unlimited way of reading books I can’t afford. I hope the author gets a good financial kick-back from this. When I can afford them I will buy them. Maybe I will have them in time for grandchildren? Thanks for some awesome stories, Mary.

By the way, I follow Ms. Robb’s blog: Elfkat.wordpress.com I learn a lot from her point of view and enjoyher sense of humor.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love Siamese cats! I had one for about 16 years and here at a decade later I still miss her so much. Our kitty was a rescue and wasn’t pure-breed. But the pictures in this book made me miss her even more. I would love to take in another Siamese someday.

This book was full of photos and information about this marvelous breed. I learned a few things. But I have to admit that I came out of the book still confused about the words points and seal-points. That may be my own inability to read and retain information properly–or it may be that it wasn’t clear in the book. Still it is worth enjoying and learning what you can.

Beautiful Black Cats: A collection of photographs of black catsBeautiful Black Cats: A collection of photographs of black cats by Precious The Cat

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

AS an animal lover I love looking at picture books about different animals. As a black cat owner I LOVE pictures of cats like mine. Since my black cat was a rescue kitty, we didn’t get to see her as a kitten, so some of these pictures could easily be what she looked like when she was tiny.

The book leaves me smiling. But I think it might have been better to not have the credits right under the picture but tuck it away in the back so that the photos can stand alone. It was the only thing I didn’t like about the book.

Horses: Amazing Photos and Facts about ThemHorses: Amazing Photos and Facts about Them by DC Waits

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I was looking for visual inspiration for my NaNoWriMo. It is about equine type people and I thought the more pictures I could look at the better. This served the purpose, but barely.

The photos are divine. But there is a need for an editor in the captions beneath each picture. Still. I got it for free. What was it I was hoping for? Great for children who haven’t learned to read yet. Or, like me, folks who like to see horses.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Since my NaNoWriMo is/was about equine people I wanted just pictures for visual inspiration. This book filled the bill perfectly. I might have wanted more, especially of ponies. But these are marvelous photos of horses and landscapes.
