You know 2020 hasn’t been all bad, right? Yes, there’s a pandemic going on, civil unrest in the U.S and other countries around the world, earthquakes, bombings, wildfires, and a lot of contention, but there have also been more opportunities to hunker down and enjoy books!

Can We Talk? Like, Really Talk?

By Jamie | August 10, 2020
Posted in

Can we talk? Please? We really need to talk. Like, really talk. Actually, we need to have a dialogue, with not just talking but also active listening, efforts to understand, all of us putting our all into expressing all that we feel and think on some really complicated, thorny matters, and then listening when others…

If I know you–and I think I do–you’re nervous or scared about how things are going in the world and in the U.S., with the pandemic, racism protests, and other problems. You’re tired because you’ve either had to hunker down at home with your kids, becoming their co-teacher, or keep going to a job at…

Book Review: The Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson, Fascinating and Charming

By Jamie | March 6, 2017
Posted in ,

A while ago, I researched for a book I wrote about a girl with exceptionally vivid dreams. I asked for some recommendations from my Facebook book club friends for non-fantasy books about dreams, and they said I should read The Bookseller, by Cynthia Swanson. I read it, and, while it wasn’t like my book at all,…

Book Review: The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer: Mixed Feelings

By Jamie | February 12, 2017
Posted in ,

You have to know that I really wanted to like this book. I pre-ordered it on Amazon and anxiously awaited its arrival. Say what you will about Stephenie Meyer’s previous books, I thought they were great. The fact that she created characters that people had such strong feelings about even before the movies came out…

Book Review: Inborn by Amy Saunders, Not the Best, But…

By Jamie | February 5, 2017
Posted in ,

Update: Inborn by Amy Saunders is available for .99 cents on Kindle! For all of you ten people who follow my book review blog: 1) thank you. You are awesome. 2) I’m going to break with tradition here and give a less-than-stellar review of a book, so be forewarned. I read a book recently that I…

Book Review: Machinations is Amazing, for $3.99

By Jamie | December 29, 2016
Posted in , ,

I don’t understand why everyone’s not raving about Machinations by Hayley Stone. It’s a book set during a robot apocalypse, populated by people fighting for their lives and a main character who was killed by the robots and then brought back as a clone and expected to lead those people while trying to carve out a…

Book Review: The Cyber Effect, a Dire Read About Internet Psychology

By Jamie | November 25, 2016
Posted in ,

I have no trouble admitting that I very much hesitated to write this review of The Cyber Effect by Mary Aiken. It’s a non-fiction explanation of how much human behavior changes online, by a cyberpsychologist. It is a thorough examination of  the internet as a relatively new and expanding space, and a very depressing one at that.…

Want a Book to Take You on a Journey? Read The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron, for $3.95.

By Jamie | October 30, 2016
Posted in , ,

There are just two kinds of books in this world, in my mind: those that take you on a journey, and those that don’t. That journey can be a physical one, if it describes different places well enough that you can envision them in your mind’s eye. Or it can be an emotional one, if…

Book Review: Positive Discipline Parenting Tools

By Jamie | October 17, 2016
Posted in

If there’s one truth I’ve learned as a parent, it’s that not all parenting books are created equal. I have read many in my time, and some have become my bibles,  while others…not so much. Recently, I read Positive Discipline Parenting Tools by Jane Nelsen, Mary Nelson Tamborski, and Brad Ainge. Thankfully, it has become one…
