 Description:

An illustrated big-sister’s guide to activism—the perfect gift for young feminists and long-time observers looking to enter the fray.

Have recent events given you pause? Does Trump’s America make you fearful for the future of women? Do you want to become more involved in helping to preserve women’s rights but aren’t sure how? In A Girl’s Guide to Joining the Resistance, Emma Rose Gray, Executive Editor at The Huffington Post, outlines all that young women need to know on pivotal women’s rights issues and offers a blueprint for those who want to take a stand and participate in the cause.

This groundbreaking book includes:

• Background information on key issues so you can choose where you most want to take a stand.

• A guide for learning about the first Amendment and how to choose good news sources and make sure you’re getting quality information.

• Practical instructions on how to get involved and stay involved, with examples from the author’s own experience organizing the successful “Watch Us Run” conference.

• Instructions for how to talk to your friend who says she’s “just not that political” and your relatives whose beliefs conflict with your own.

• Advice for self-care and how to stay involved without exhausting yourself.

• Extensive back-matter including numbers to call, organizations to email and donate to, and scripts for reaching out to representatives and organizations.

• Interviews with experienced activists including senator Elizabeth Warren, actress Amber Tamblyn, actress Marlo Thomas, Women’s March Co-Chair Carmen Perez, Mother of the Movement Lucy McBath, Black Lives Matter creator Alicia Garza, People for Bernie Founder Winnie Wong, and former assistant to President Obama Tina Tchen.

Featuring original 2-color illustrations throughout by New York Magazine’s Eva Hill, A Girl’s Guide to Joining the Resistance illuminates why the time has never been more important than now to get involved in helping to ensure women’s rights are protected for the current and future generations of women.

Book Review:

Every little kiss is worth the risk if you find love in the end 

This book was good. Has he ending “Paxton said that’s Mens bullseye get to sleep with me. I believe if it wasn’t for Ford Paxton wouldn’t have talked much, because Pax spoke a lot more with the help of Ford and bullseye. I knew that well was hoping Liv forgave Ford for his white lie… I need a guy like Ford ❤ Jesus where he’s at (looking) anyways.

I won this book through good reads I usually don’t get right to the books I won because I am reading other books. But I’m glad I have gotten around to reading this book and happy I won this book. I will also read other books by this author whenever I get a chance.

Hopefully, it’s ones about Liv friends (I see book 1 is about Avery I plan to read that real soon. Hopefully, one about Grace comes soon.)

Book Review:

There’s nothing that single mom Liv Preston won’t do if it means making her six-year-old son smile again. After a heartbreaking two years, her little family is due for some fun in the sun. She just didn’t expect to find it in the big, rugged, Search and Rescue hero next door—who shows her just how exciting, and sexy, life’s adventures can be.

As head of Reno’s K-9 search division, Ford Jamison knows what it takes to make life-and-death decisions on the fly. He doesn’t hesitate, doesn’t do regrets, and has never doubted his instincts—until he makes a promise that turns his world upside down. Desperate for redemption, he returns to Sequoia Lake, only to find himself face-to-face with his past…and the one woman he can’t have. Not when his secret would destroy her—and everything she holds dear.

For Liv, finding love once was a gift. Finding it twice seems impossible, until the moment Ford’s lips meet hers. Love doesn’t always come easy, but when it’s right, it’s worth fighting for…

She was also the loneliest. Looking at Liv was like looking at his mother. Too proud to take help, too tired to enjoy her life. She’d always said she’d get to the fun part later, but Ford had been a wild kid, and for his mom, later never came.

24210386_1393056284153938_5478403974552342872_o

Description:

Five women go on a hike. Only four return. Jane Harper, the New York Times bestselling author of The Dry, asks: How well do you really know the people you work with?

When five colleagues are forced to go on a corporate retreat in the wilderness, they reluctantly pick up their backpacks and start walking down the muddy path.

But one of the women doesn’t come out of the woods. And each of her companions tells a slightly different story about what happened.

Federal Police Agent Aaron Falk has a keen interest in the whereabouts of the missing hiker. In an investigation that takes him deep into isolated forest, Falk discovers secrets lurking in the mountains, and a tangled web of personal and professional friendship, suspicion, and betrayal among the hikers. But did that lead to murder?

23376222_1370906599702240_4350980026483970291_n

Description:

The inimitable Faith Fairchild returns in a chilling New England whodunit, inspired by the best Agatha Christie mysteries and with hints of the timeless board game Clue.

For most of her adult life, resourceful caterer Faith Fairchild has called the sleepy Massachusetts village of Aleford home. While the native New Yorker has come to know the region well, she isn’t familiar with Havencrest, a privileged enclave, until the owner of Rowan House, a secluded sprawling Arts and Crafts mansion, calls her about catering a weekend house party.

Producer/director of a string of hit musicals, Max Dane—a Broadway legend—is throwing a lavish party to celebrate his seventieth birthday. At the house, as they discuss the event, Faith’s client makes a startling confession. “I didn’t hire you for your cooking skills, fine as they may be, but for your sleuthing ability. You see, one of the guests wants to kill me.”

Faith’s only clue is an ominous birthday gift the man received the week before—an empty casket sent anonymously containing a twenty-year-old Playbill from Max’s last, and only failed, production—Heaven or Hell. Consequently, Max has drawn his guest list for the party from the cast and crew. As the guests begin to arrive one by one, and an ice storm brews overhead, Faith must keep one eye on the menu and the other on her host to prevent his birthday bash from becoming his final curtain call.

Full of delectable recipes, brooding atmosphere, and Faith’s signature biting wit, The Body in the Casket is a delightful thriller that echoes the beloved mysteries of Agatha Christie and classic films such as Murder by Death and Deathtrap.

In Catalyst, the follow-up to November Ellison’s breakout novel, Beacon, Pastor Jo Benally struggles to cope with the realization that the innocent are not immune to the evils of the world. Chloe, a child in her congregation, can see vampires, and Jo decides to take on the role of protector for the girl, moving with Chloe’s family to Virginia.

But Jo’s presence may be more of a liability than an asset. Contrary to their solitary nature, vampires begin to congregate around Jo, whose powers as a Beacon are growing by the day. Realizing she facilitates love and lustful inclinations in those around her, Jo finds herself at the crux of an undead love triangle.

Making matters much more complicated, the murderous, immoral agency Jo worked for before turning to God reinserts itself into her life. RAND seeks to understand—and wield—the power of vampirism as a weapon. RAND must be stopped.

As matters come to a head, Jo suddenly understands her purpose in this bloody, dark, and violent world. Assuming the role of protector once again, Jo defends the vampires from RAND and teaches them to use their powers for good.

Description: 

Fiona Davis, the author of The Dollhouse, returns with a compelling novel about the thin lines between love and loss, success and ruin, passion and madness, all hidden behind the walls of The Dakota—New York City’s most famous residence.

After a failed apprenticeship, working her way up to head housekeeper of a posh London hotel is more than Sara Smythe ever thought she’d make of herself. But when a chance encounter with Theodore Camden, one of the architects of the grand New York apartment house The Dakota, leads to a job offer, her world is suddenly awash in possibility—no mean feat for a servant in 1884. The opportunity to move to America, where a person can rise above one’s station. The opportunity to be the female manager of The Dakota, which promises to be the greatest apartment house in the world. And the opportunity to see more of Theo, who understands Sara like no one else…and is living in The Dakota with his wife and three young children.

In 1985, Bailey Camden is desperate for new opportunities. Fresh out of rehab, the former party girl and interior designer is homeless, jobless, and penniless. Two generations ago, Bailey’s grandfather was the ward of famed architect Theodore Camden. But the absence of a genetic connection means Bailey won’t see a dime of the Camden family’s substantial estate. Instead, her “cousin” Melinda—Camden’s biological great-granddaughter—will inherit almost everything. So when Melinda offers to let Bailey oversee the renovation of her lavish Dakota apartment, Bailey jumps at the chance, despite her dislike of Melinda’s vision. The renovation will take away all the character and history of the apartment Theodore Camden himself lived in…and died in, after suffering multiple stab wounds by a madwoman named Sara Smythe, a former Dakota employee who had previously spent seven months in an insane asylum on Blackwell’s Island.

One hundred years apart, Sara and Bailey are both tempted by and struggle against the golden excess of their respective ages—for Sara, the opulence of a world ruled by the Astors and Vanderbilts; for Bailey, the free-flowing drinks and cocaine in the nightclubs of New York City—and take refuge and solace in the Upper West Side’s gilded fortress. But a building with a history as rich—and often tragic—as The Dakota’s can’t hold its secrets forever, and what Bailey discovers in its basement could turn everything she thought she knew about Theodore Camden—and the woman who killed him—on its head.

With rich historical detail, nuanced characters, and gorgeous prose, Fiona Davis once again delivers a compulsively readable novel that peels back the layers of not only a famed institution but the lives—and lies—of the beating hearts within.
