Dying To Be Me is a book that I saw numerous times while I was looking around Netgalley. I would look at it and pass thinking that I don’t know how IDying To Be Me is a book that I saw numerous times while I was looking around Netgalley. I would look at it and pass thinking that I don’t know how I feel about NDE (near death experience) and it’s probably more of the same old, same old. White lights, beauty, etc. No not for me.
After finishing Wishes Fulfulled by Wayne Dyer I was drawn to read it. Dr. Dyer mentions Anita and her book numerous times. He even wrote the forward to this book. I still thought it would be the same old story but boy was I wrong!
Ms. Moorjani does not take us on the same old white light trip, nor does she preach or claim to have any answers. All she does it tell her story, her experience and take from it what you will.
The Willing is the second book in the Tom Crayder series so reading the first one will give you the backstory. That being said, not reading the firstThe Willing is the second book in the Tom Crayder series so reading the first one will give you the backstory. That being said, not reading the first one first will NOT take away from the excitement of this story at all. It may leave a few holes but trust me, you will enjoy filling them in yourself as you read.
I truly like Tom Crayder! He is a fun guy that I would love to be neighbors with. He may not be the perfect husband and father but he does his best and there is no doubt that he loves his family. In this book Tom and his partner Lorna are working to fix a mess of trouble caused by Tom’s wife. Old friends come back from the first book to lend a hand.
The action and excitement was high and steady! I can’t help but root for the bad guys. The author brings them alive and while I know they are dirty, meanies, I still can’t help but love them! I love a book that shows all sides of a person, good, bad and ugly and this book certainly delivers. There are twists and turns aplenty but never do you get lost or confused. It’s a stay up late and finish it book because you will need to know what happens next, right now!
The Crayder Chronicles is a wonderful, fun series with characters that become friends. I can’t wait to meet up with them again in the next book....more
Wishes Fulfilled went above and beyond what I expected when I started reading it. I know it would be interesting, would have gentle guidance for how t Wishes Fulfilled went above and beyond what I expected when I started reading it. I know it would be interesting, would have gentle guidance for how to improve our lives but never, ever did I expect it to touch me to the core of my being! Of course that is basically what the book is about, connecting with your inner self, your Higher Self and knowing that by doing this your life will change dramatically!
Dr. Dyer does an outstanding job of explaining in simple terms the difference between higher self and lower self. He shows us by example how to change the way we think, to choose what we think about and to learn to look at every thought, desire, etc in a way that benefits us to the highest degree.
He includes quotes from many teachers or Masters such as St. Germaine, Uell S. Anderson, Neville Goddard and many more. In each chapter Dr. Dyer takes us one step further along on how we can achieve anything we want with the power of our thoughts and intention. Each new chapter expands on the ideals of the last and brings it all together. Each chapter ends with three ways to implement the teachings in your own life.
I have to be honest, I have read Dr. Dyer before and found his books to be hit or miss and a lot of times so over my head that I could not make sense out of them. Clearly it was not his writing but myself not being ready to really 'hear' what he had to say. Not once did I feel that this book was confusing or over my head. I found it helpful in so many ways. This was an e-book review copy but I am going to buy it. Wishes Fulfilled is one of those books that needs to be read again and again with each reading bringing something different to the reader. My only regret is that the pictures that Dr. Dyer talks about were not included in the review copy. That's ok though because I will be buying it anyway!

It falls under the Self-Help category but it is so much more and I believe there is something in it for everyone at every stage of their life. It is a work book with personal reflection questions at the end of the chapters focusing on what that chapter was about. I read this as an e-book and answered the questions as notes in my reader. It will be interesting to go back and see how my answers change as time goes on.
There are chapters on everything from Courage to Endurance and so much more. My favorites are Patience, Soul and Intuition. The author prefaces the chapters with quotes from some famous people and her own work as well. Each and every one are terrific words to live by.

Says it all doesn't it?
I enjoyed the Author's Note where she gives us a little background on how the book came about. She also offers a Pay it Forward when you purchase the book, I admire her for doing that.
Sensations is a short book that is full of inspiration and positive messages. I believe it will mean something different to each person that reads it. It is the kind of book that you can easily apply to your life. I know this is a book I will go back to again and again.

Philip Carlo in this book brings us again face to face with some of the worst human killers on this earth but what he also does is takes us into his world, the world of ALS which is the worst neuromuscular disease there is......

Bleed for Me was a won book from Goodreads. I was so excited, I have read others in this series and loved them. This baby was no disappointment!
I think I am in love with Joe O’Loughlin! I love his attitude, his dry humor and his outlook on life. He handles situations with grace and efficiency. In this book he is like a dog who won’t let go of his bone.
The story moves at lightening speed and Joe is determined to help Sienna and get to the bottom of things. Sienna is a friend of Joe’s daughter and Joe knows things at home may not be what they seem. In case this was not enough Joe is dealing with a teacher who is not what he seems, a soon to be ex-wife who is still in love with him, and let’s not forget Mr. Parkinson. That’s how Joe refers to his disease that is slowing changing his life. His way of dealing with this disease is amazing. He says he has Parkinsons but it does not have him!
Every character in the book is outstanding and the author does a great job of making us love them, dislike them, question them and shake our heads. The secondary story with Joe and his family is heart warming. I am still rooting for him and hope his wife gives him another chance. My favorite part was Joe talking to one of his wife’s dates.. I was laughing out loud!
I think even readers who have never read the author’s other books will still enjoy this. Of course I have to say go back and read the others for more background and to enjoy Joe, he is that good....more
WOW, how is that for a review? Pretty much sums up my feelings on the book! I love Medical Suspense and Michael Palmer writes the best ones. His charaWOW, how is that for a review? Pretty much sums up my feelings on the book! I love Medical Suspense and Michael Palmer writes the best ones. His characters are ‘real’ people, people who I have no problem identifying with and Dr. Welcome is awesome. He is a dad, an ex-husband, a brilliant doctor who hit bottom and climbed his way back up to now help other doctors suffering the same fate. He never hides from his past or tries to sugar coat it and I admire that. I truly enjoyed his interaction with his teen daughter and the way he handled his ex-wife’s new marriage and husband. I felt that he still loved his ex but he knew it was his fault that he lost her and respected and supported her chance at a new life and happiness. I wish every divorce was this way.

It’s not that I didn’t enjoy it, I did. BUT, if you followed the trial like I did which was not missing a second, watching all of the replays, etc on HLN and anywhere else I could find them, then you really didn’t learn anything from listening to the book.
I thought it would have more behind the scenes dirt. It had some, but not a whole lot. IF you never paid any attention to what was going on with the trial and never saw anything on the news then you will learn a great deal from this book.

He is out for revenge on Carol and Tony and the ways he does it will shock you. Yes, shock you. Even you die-hard serial killer fans who have read it all will still be sitting on the edge of your seat, holding your breath and biting your nails waiting to see if he will be stopped.

I am an animal lover, cats are of course my favorite pet but I love them all. I enjoy looking at pictures as well. So combine the love of animals and the interest in looking at peoples pictures and you have a win, win for me.
This is not just your everyday dog and cat photos. These are family photos that include the human part of the family as well. We have snakes, pigs, monkeys, and horses just to name a few. Some are dressed, some are posed but all are just a bit out there in my opinion but enjoyable to look at and laugh at. I wondered many times while reading this book if these people meant for these pictures to be funny or if there were serious.
I wish the explanations of the pictures were a little more informative but I suppose they do speak for themselves. It is a fun book that will bring a smile to your face. Also a wonderful conversation starter if you have it on your coffee table!

The stories are never the 'norm' and the characters are people you can't help but like. I even liked the killer. Maybe admired his creativity is a better way to say it. I would look like a horrible person if I liked the killer! I was not sure I would like this book with the story revolving so much around a video game but I got hooked. The action never stops.
I thought the murderer forcing his victims to scream while he recorded it for use in his real life video games was amazing. I also sat on the edge of my seat reading about Jude trying to stay alive when he was thrown into one of those games. Imagine what Jude was feeling when he was in the midst of that "game" fighting for his life, literally and knowing that the wrong move would be the end of you and your family! Add to that having to disarm a bomb for good measure! Oh yeah, Jude has a problem with freezing up in times of crisis which is why he left the police force in the first place. So, he also has to find a way to overcome these overpowering feelings while staying alive! Can you say heart pounding? Trust me, yours will be pounding along with your fists clenching and your teeth being gnawed down from clenching them together in anticipation of what is to come!
A must read for any thriller lover. Thank you Mr. Zandri, you have done it again!...more
I am not a big romance reader and usually won't even pick one up but I had read and enjoyed Ms. James other book, Dracula, My Love: The Secret JournalI am not a big romance reader and usually won't even pick one up but I had read and enjoyed Ms. James other book, Dracula, My Love: The Secret Journals of Mina Harker so I agreed to give this a read. I have to say, not many books read like a play or movie but this one does. When I say that I mean that as you read each chapter you can very easily visualize the scenes playing out like watching a movie or a play. They come to life that much.
I liked Michael from the first time he showed up on the snowy road, tired and not wanting to help Nicole who was stranded. But we knew he would and he did. Michael is in a word, amazing! The book in many ways reminded me of the fairy tales that I used to read my daughter. Michael was certainly no ogre or beast but it was that element of imperfection that drew me to him. I don't want to use any spoilers so you will just have to trust me and read the book!
We get to know Michael and Nicole very well since other than wild animals there are the only characters in the book. I can't say that Nicole is someone that I would want to be friends with but I enjoyed watching things between her and Michael play out. The ending while not a cliff-hanger certainly in my opinion left room for another book.
If you like a nice story with a paranormal twist and a little mystery thrown in, give this book a read. Nice for a take along read or just to escape for a weekend....more
