Where do I start? Back in the Saddle is about your typical fall from fame egotistic turned humble story. It follows the MC Colt who comes home after the harsh reality of getting played on Wall Street to find his home up in the air and in his hands to fix. He wrestles with the idea of love, family, and religion. It is a very “Hallmark” type story. I enjoyed this story and it always had something big going on, however I felt like the writing was mediocre and that made the story drag on in some places. This to me was the only thing I found wrong with the book. I am thoroughly excited about continuing on with these characters in Grey’s Glen. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a easy read and a light/heartwarming read.
Overall 3.5/5 stars

I absolutely love this comic book. Although video games aren’t my favorite thing ever, I really felt intrigued by this book. I am excited to share this with my husband who is a major video game fanatic. The illustrations and writing flowed easily together and were easy to understand. I highly recommend this for a Christmas or general gift for anyone who loves comic books and video games.

Carve is a beautifully designed “how to” book. I saw this and couldn’t pass it up. I have a couple family members who love wood working and love tinkering around. I snatched this up for them to see if maybe they would enjoy some new ideas on what to make. I thought the “diy” designs in the book were different than any I personally had seen before. If you or someone you know likes carving wood then I would highly suggest this book. Especially with Christmas right around the corner.

When I started this book, I had no idea what to expect. I thought it would be a typical end of the world by Ice Age book, but I was wrong. It was way different. I thought there were equal amounts of Ice Age talk as there were family\friendship dynamics. The thing I loved most about this book were the characters. We had a tremendous amount of diverse character represented and it was amazing to read. I also loved how this book taught me a few things I hadn’t known before. I recommend reading this book this winter.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I read Higgs’ other book “31 Verses to Write on your Heart” last year and was eager to see what this one had in store. It was thought provoking, loving, kind, and taught me more than I could expect. It activated me into actually doing things and thinking differently through out each day. Overall I would give this book a 5/5 stars. I highly recommend to Christian bible study groups and churches everywhere.

Oh my gosh, this book has been an utter joy to read. It was so fun and one of my favorites of the year so far. I cannot wait to pick up the next books in the series. The world is so amazing and extremely well written. I loved the characters and all their quirky aspects. I loved the steam punk vibe I got from the alternate world Irene was in during this book. Overall I couldn’t have asked for more. Highly recommend picking this one up if you haven’t already.

I started the Double S Ranch series not knowing what to expect. Now that I have finished book 3, I can say that I love this series so much. I love how this book kept up the same atmosphere the first two offered. I love the family dynamic and ranch life that are so amazingly written. I would love to pick up more of Herne’s books in the future. Also forever hoping there will be more books in this series…a girl can dream right?

Josh Barkin brings us into a real world view of the drug war and crime in Mexico. With 12 short stories, each different in their own way, you get to experience different robberies and murders. There was never a dull moment in this book. Something was always happening, keeping you on your toes. However this book had no happy ending or good side to it. All the stories were dark and depressing. I would have liked to have seen a few of the stories be positive. Overall this was a fast captivating read that I enjoyed but did not love. I would recommend to anyone who likes action/adventure/drug lord/crime ect.
