The New Guide to Knitting and CrochetThe New Guide to Knitting and Crochet by Marie Jane Cooper

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I did not read every word here. But there are a lot of patterns and advice on knitting and crocheting. Unfortunately. these are old fashioned patterns. You can tell by the titles of the patterns. Worst of all there are no pictures. I just don’t know how well the finished product is supposed to look without that reference. It might be fun to try.

Because of the frequent advice, I will not delete this book from my library as it may hold gems I need to be better at these crafts.

Bravo and ElphieBravo and Elphie by Hagit R. Oron

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, what a delightful little book! It speaks to the shy one in all of us. Scared of something? Try to help someone else out of their fears and suddenly you are set free. This would have been a great book for my offspring when they were tiny and afraid.

Beyond the adorable illustrations, this gem offers plenty of conversation starters. Can elephants really climb up the slide steps? Would an elephant be friends with a rat? I remember a Mythbusters show that demonstrated how the big beasts seemed to shy away from mice. But it could just be that elephants care for their little friends of the plains and don’t want to hurt them. Who knows?

Of course we could talk about the main message of being afraid and thinking of ways to help others get over their fears. Even as adults, don’t we need that reminder every now and then?

The Ultimate AirFryer Cookbook: Over 50 Quick & Easy Low Fat Recipes for Every Day and Every FamilyThe Ultimate AirFryer Cookbook: Over 50 Quick & Easy Low Fat Recipes for Every Day and Every Family by Paul Wilson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Okay, I didn’t do much more than thumb through what this book has to offer. I didn’t know what air frying was before this book came along. It sounded interested, healthy. So when it appeared on the carousel on my new RCA 10 Viking Pro (yep, I got a new toy!) I thought I’d see what it was all about. The recipes seem so yummy and healthy. But how does one ‘Air Fry”? I couldn’t imagine. So I looked it up. And now I have another toy to research for my gift card goals. Um, I’ve been doing mPoints Plus and other surveys to earn money or gift cards. So here is the web page I found for my wishlist: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no…

Once I get this I will try some of these recipes and re-evaluate this book. Can’t wait!

Summer Court: A Paranormal Romance (The Tarot Witches Book 4)Summer Court: A Paranormal Romance by SM Reine

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well, Sara Reine has written another winner. Not for kids, this one. But with all the fast moving adventure of the rest of her books.

I need to take a time out to disclose that this book was given to me for an honest review.

No one could say that Ms. Reine is bigoted in any way. She employs characters from across the gamut of known and unknown beings. In this case, the main character, Samita Madin, is a paraplegic who is pregnant. And if I interpret it right, she is Indian. She is in love (in lust?) with Slater Reinhard who is a recently turned werewolf. That in itself is a story, but Sara placed this one about the time of the world ending. If Samita didn’t have enough against her, she has received a tarot card. Yeah, in this series that is what certain witches receive and it sets a course for them whether they accept it or not. In this case, Death is the card. Could her life get any worse?

The problems I had with the book are not due to the author. I found I had to reread a lot of parts of the story because I sometimes got lost. Anyone else have this problem in the summer? The days last so long so my reading time is later than usual. I’m usually more tired and my ADD is at its highest. So ‘shiny things’ distract me from my reading.

It is disappointing to see my reading goal so far from being hit. I am about 17 books behind. Yikes! But I love summer! So I will try to find some short books to catch up.

Anway, if you have started reading SM Reine from Six Moon Summer (Seasons of the Moon #1) on you will be happy to enter back into her world. Just remember, though, this is a book for adults, there are a few erotic scenes if that is not your thing. But they don’t distract from the story so, speed past and keep enjoying the rest of the story.
