Planet Urth (Book 1) by Jennifer and Christopher Martucci #postapocalyptic #sciencefiction #reviews #talestotideyouover

My uncle recommended this post-apocalyptic title to me, and while it has weaknesses, I can see what attracted him to the story. This is very much a tale about taking ownership of your life rather than just maintaining the patterns you were trained in.…

Things That Make Me Smile No.145: Going to #Space #smiles

I grew up on the promise of space travel, and while we’re far from where we were supposed to be, the dream is still alive. This video gives a good explanation of why what SpaceX is doing is so important, up to and including shipping a car ahead.

Stand & Deliver by Rhenna Morgan #contemporaryromance #suspense #reviews #talestotideyouover

I have a new favorite in the series. Maybe it’s the time lapse since the last Men of Haven novel I read, but I don’t think so. Stand & Deliver offers the perfect blend of two people falling in love and a true understanding of family whether connected by…

Marked in flesh by Anne Bishop #shifters #fantasy #reviews #talestotideyouover

Anne Bishop offers a lot to like in this book. It’s shifters, but they aren’t humans who sometimes wear fur. They are wolves first and humans second, but they’re more than simply wolves as well. The humans as a whole are very human with the same variety…

Things That Make Me Smile No.144: Read-Aloud Picture Books and More #BayCon2018 Authors #smiles #reading #talestotideyouover
