Seized: The Pipe Woman ChroniclesSeized: The Pipe Woman Chronicles by Lynne Cantwell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well, can you tell it is NaNoWriMo time? Here, yet again, is something that isn’t me working on my novel. Yeah, let’s read and review someone else’s novel while we figure out how to write again.

Basically, this has been by bedtime book. I’ve been reading it in the Omnibus but decided that I need to review each book separately and will review the whole series when finished with the Omnibus.

In this first book, Seized, we learn about the main character, Naomi, her life as a mediator, her handsome fiancé, and her sudden being taken over by a goddess, White Buffalo Calf Pipe Woman, during a sweat bath with her “Woo woo” (translation: New Age) best friend, Shannon. I believe peyote was involved. But soon Naomi and friends are sent out on a quest to save the world. Yeah, a lot to put on one person and her friends.

There is a lot of old-world Pagan/Norse mythology, a couple Native American tribal religions and the Judeo/Christian theologies. Thought-provoking fiction to say the least.

There are scenes of action and moments of philosophy. But best of all, for a first book in the series, no cliff-hangers.

This book is free on Amazon. Well worth the price! I am well into book two so I am trying to remember book one. I hate it when I do that. Let’s blame NaNo, shall we? Enjoy!

The Seven Lady GodivasThe Seven Lady Godivas by Dr. Seuss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Some books are meant to be devoured. Others you want to take your time and enjoy every nuance. This was one of the latter. If you’re like me you’ve read to your siblings and your children, every Dr. Seuss, you could find. So when this came along from my friends in the Reno BookCrossing group, I had to grab it. I’ve had it in my possession for far too long. But when I finally settled into my new house. I decided this would be one of the first reads.

In a world, where the common sense that we all know and love, is totally missing, it’s nice to get back to just plain old horse sense. You know those old sayings and wondered where they came from? Dr. Seuss tries to explain in this book. What a strange, and humorous book this is!

For some fuddy-duddies, this book might not be so good. It has cartoon nudity, okay? But there’s a reason for that. Dr. Seuss explains it quite well as he goes along. So ‘don’t get your tidy Whitey’s’ in a knot as my husband says. Enjoy this book for the prize it is.

As I said before, this is a BookCrossing edition. BCID 639-13580476 If there are no objections from my group. I plan to set this book free at Christmas Valley Library.
