I Believe in Werewolves: An Anthology of Wolfen ebook review

Thursday Thistle: A Fairy Tale by August V. Fahren ebook review

Lethe: le the noun 'le-the

1: A dark, forgotten land from which all of our fairytales originated.

2: A Post apocalyptic realm of twisted, magic wielding royalty locked in battle with a race of technologically superior Guardians (who seek to snuff out magic forever).

3: The world Thursday Thistle has journeyed to in order to locate Princess Monday, one of seven paranormal princesses each named after a day of the week.

In a world where speaking with "wise men" is more like dealing with tech support and romance can be deadly Thursday will have to contend with: the wicked cannibal queen, a zombie grizzly bear, wee werewolves, robot laser-shooting mermaids, a steampunk tortoise, and a Zen archer monkey.

Additionally, she will meet the Schumacher Hound and find a haunted Halloween cuckoo clock temple and that's just the beginning in this tale of whimsical wandering in the dreamlike tradition of Alice in Wonderland.


I little different than what I am used to reading. Thursday Thistle is a mix of a bunch of fairy tales mixed with horror. The sex scenes are a little weird for my taste but the book was good enough to keep reading anyways .

Young Justice Season 1 Volume 2

“Own it on DVD” October 25th 2011

In Young Justice, being a teenager means proving yourself over and over—to peers, parents, teachers, mentors and, ultimately, to yourself. But what if you’re not just a normal teenager? What if you’re a teenage super hero? Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you’re worthy of the Justice League? That’s exactly what the members of Young Justice—Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis—will found out, whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero. Based upon characters from DC Comics.


Everyone in this house are huge fans of this cartoon  and every week we sit in the living room to watch it. Yes, we are all geeks in this house.
Even if you don't know much about super heroes (I mean their background stories)  this is a wonderful show for everyone young and old. Very well done.  This one I recommend to all who loves super hero cartoons. I know we will be watching this again.

Elemental (Soul Guardians, Book 2) by Kim Richardson review

When seventeen year-old Kara Nightingale is suddenly struck by lightning and dies—yet again—she finds herself back in Horizon, where angels, oracles and other supernatural beings occupy a mystical world unknown to humanity.

But when Kara accidently strikes an angel with her newfound powers and nearly kills him, she is banished to the angel prison Tartarus. What’s more, Kara soon discovers her mother’s soul has been taken by Demons.

Hunted by the Legion, Kara takes refuge with a new band of angel friends. She finds herself torn with her feelings for David—when angel romance is forbidden. And when Kara decides to venture into the Netherworld to find her mother’s missing soul, will her powers be enough to save her mother and save the mortal world?


After I had read and reviewed the first book in this series Marked: Soul Guardians Book 1 I couldn't wait to read the next book. I very much enjoyed Elemental just as much as Marked.  Very well written and like the first book I was hooked from the very beginning. Now I can't wait for Horizon (Soul Guardians # 3).  This series is a must read.

Nielsen-Massey Organic Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract Review & Giveaway (NOW CLOSED)

Hello everyone, 
I recently received a bottle of Nielsen-Massey Organic Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract to review. I love food and I love vanilla so i was super excited to try this one out.   First here is a little bit of info:

Nielsen-Massey Vanillas has been producing premium pure vanilla products since 1907. From its ever-popular Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla to custom blends and flavors created for specific customer needs, Nielsen-Massey has earned the reputation as the producer of fine vanillas worldwide.  All Nielsen-Massey’s vanilla products are Kosher certified, Gluten-free certified, and they have been a certified organic producer since 1998.  As a family owned and managed business, Nielsen-Massey is committed to and truly cares about its customers. With this commitment comes a pledge to continue producing the world’s finest Pure Vanillas batch after batch – a promise that has been kept for nearly a century.

Now here is the recipe I have tried from their site

Eggplant Parmesan

2 eggplant
1 cup finely diced yellow onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
1 (29-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Organic Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons dried organic Italian seasoning
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
5 eggs
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
2 cups plain dry bread crumbs
1 cup (4 ounces) freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons dried organic parsley
1 pound provolone cheese, sliced
1/2 cup (2 ounces) freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Peel the eggplant and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch thick slices. Arrange in a single layer over a paper towel-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt to sweat.
Sauté the onion and garlic in olive oil in a large saucepot until translucent. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce, vanilla extract, cinnamon, Italian seasoning, bay leaf, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Simmer, covered, for one hour, stirring occasionally. Remove the bay leaf.
Beat the eggs lightly in a shallow dish. Combine the flour, bread crumbs, 1 cup Parmesan cheese and the parsley in a shallow dish and mix well. Dry the eggplant slices with paper towels. Dip each slice into the eggs and then dredge in the bread crumb mixture to coat. Place on a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray. Spray both sides of the eggplant slices with nonstick cooking spray. Broil on high for 2 to 3 minutes, turning when the bread crumbs turn golden brown.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a medium casserole with nonstick cooking spray. Cover the bottom of the dish with a small amount of the tomato sauce. Layer the eggplant, provolone and remaining sauce until all the ingredients are used, ending with the sauce. Sprinkle 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese over the top. Bake for 30 minutes or until the cheese begins to brown. Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes.
Note: Sweating with salt removes the bitterness and moisture from the eggplant.
Serves 6 to 8

This was very yummy. Then I added some to my cappuccino and I loved it .   I will use this when I do my holidays baking in a few weeks as well. I can't wait to do my Holiday  baking with Nielsen-Massey Organic Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract.

Decoy (Assassin's Rising) by S.B. Sebrick

The last few grueling years of training have served Kaltor well. He’s learned to harness the magic within his body, overcome a stronger opponent, avoid capture, and everything else an assassin-in-training needs to survive.
Or so he thought.
But when those they protect at an excavation site release a demon from the Abyss itself, Kaltor realizes just how poorly prepared they all are for what’s coming. Within a single night, their mining camp of one thousand people plummets to a couple hundred terrified survivors, the majority turned against each other by the demon’s potent abilities. Then she turns towards Shaylis, the largest city in the region, for the next stage of her plan.
In a constant battle of both steel and strategy Kaltor and his friends struggle to delay, deceive and defeat their opponent, who’s spent the last thousand years planning out every detail of her assault to perfection. As the number of casualties mounts and her final plan comes to light, Kaltor is left with only one option. He must draw on the secret power within himself, knowing if his true identity is discovered, his life and the fate of the world, will be changed forever.


From the first few pages of this book I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it but I kept reading on and started to enjoy it very much. Very well written and great story. I was hooked and can't wait for the next book in this series.  This is a  young adult fantasy  book you even if you are in your 30's and up you might like it as well.

It is behind these walls that Josie dreams of escape. Her fear of capture is amplified when the Commander’s army captures Building X where her husband’s illicit Dozer complex is housed. Time is running out, and Josie must decide if reaching the mysterious outside world is worth the risk entailed.


I very much enjoyed this one. It is only just a few pages so I was able to read it while I was waiting for my hubby to get his hair cut.  Very well written for such a short read . This is one I think most of you will enjoy .

Green Lantern Blu-ray Combo Pack review

In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, an elite, powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. Warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him the ability to create anything his mind can imagine. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan (Reynolds).

Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal’s humanity is one weapon no member of the Corps has ever had, and if – with willpower, determination and the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Lively) – Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax... he will save the Earth and all of mankind from certain destruction.

We saw this one in theater months ago and just yesterday I received my copy of Blu-ray Combo Pack of this movie I couldn't wait to watch it again and post my review on here.  This copy has the Extended Cut which is what we watched last night. 
Even if you aren't really into comic books you will enjoy this movie. I for one do not know much about Green Lantrerns or any other colour lanterns but I loved this movie and I really  hope there is a sequel. I also loved the features.
I do not know I feel about the new digital copy because I can not use my code yet .  
I highly recommend this movie.

    I know I have been a little slow on my blog during the past few days but I have been not feeling so well. Then on Monday it was Thanksgiving here in Canada.
    We stayed home on Thanksgiving and I made a big dinner. Made mashed potatoes, veggies, stuffing and turkey  and for desert we had pumpkin pie.
    Once we had finished eating dinner was done we washed the dishes and then I finally was able to sit back and relax. I was going to do some reading but we ended up playing a video game insteads.

    How was your weekend?

    Candy and Cigarettes by CS DeWildt

    In the face of revenge, innocence is meaningless.

    Death is omnipresent to small-town loner Lloyd Bizbang. Today proves no exception. After being attacked yet again by a pair of sociopaths who have targeted him since childhood, Lloyd stumbles upon a sight he wishes he could unsee in the town junkyard. Now as he just tries to live through another day, the bodies are stacking up in the town of Horton, and Lloyd finds himself connected to each of them via the drug-and-drink-addled, unhinging police chief, yet another person who has an old score to settle with Lloyd. A game of revenge and survival is underway, but will there be a winner at the day’s end?

    About the Author:
    CS DeWildt lives and writes in Tucson, Arizona. He is currently working on a novel and a collection of shorts. His work has been showcased on sites like Bartleby Snopes, Word Riot, The Bicycle Review, Writer’s Bloc and Mobius Magazine.


    Candy And Cigarette is a dark and a little scary novella. Not one of my favourite novella but it did keep me reading . I feel like the story bounced around quite a bit and if it were a full length novel I most likely would not have been able to read it all because of all the bouncing around in this one . That is why I only give it 3 out of 5 stars.

    The Healer by Sabrina Furminger

    More than anything in the world, Ivy Merchuk longs to be just another face in the crowd-easier said than done for a woman born with the ability to heal grievous injuries with the touch of her hands. To a young girl just struggling to fit in, this gift is an unbearable burden, one that fills her with shame and anxiety. Her mother understands and cautions the young girl to keep this strange and wonderful ability a secret, for fear that her daughter will attract the wrong sort of attention. So Ivy struggles to conceal her extraordinary skills from the world as she grows into adulthood.
    Desperate for answers, she pours herself into a life of research and lands a job as a librarian. One fateful night after work, she stumbles onto a brutal crime scene. Horrified and conflicted, she makes the difficult decision to help the victim, who has been beaten almost to death. And this chance encounter with a brooding urban samurai named Victor Morgan sends her already precarious world skidding off its axis.
    What these two discover together will change both of their destinies.


    You know sometimes you read the description of a book and you just know this will be a awesome book. Well this is one of those books .
    My internet was out for a good part of yesterday so I decided to read this book. I enjoyed every minute of it and didn't put it down until I was done. The Healer is a very well written book that will keep you hooked until the very end.

    I highly recommend this book to all of you.

    WB Holiday Titles

    I love the holidays and since I can remember even if I can not  celebrate the Holidays with friends and family my tradition is to watch as many Holidays movies as possible.

    Here are some WB Holiday titles that are coming out on DVD and BluRay soon.

    Frosty’s Winter Wonderland, Deluxe Edition
     Frosty the Snowman's marriage is threatened by jealous Jack Frost.

    The Smurfs Holiday Celebration

    Twas the Night Before Christmas (BD)

      For some unexplained reason, letters to Santa Claus are being returned to the children of Junctionville. It seems some sour soul has angered St. Nick, calling Christmas "a fraudulent myth!" The skeptical rodent Albert Mouse has to be brought to his senses "and let up a little on the wonder why." How Albert is persuaded to change his tune paves the way for Santa's jolly return to Junctionville -- and the joyous finale of this charming animated fable inspired by Clement Moore's poem.

    Priest movie review

    In a post-apocalyptic world, a savage war between man and vampire raged for centuries. A warrior priest (Paul Bettany) receives word of fresh attacks but now it`s personal, his niece has been kidnapped by a new hive of merciless vampires. To save her, he must break his vow of peace and hunt down the hive before it's too late. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel and packed with bloodthirsty action, this full throttle crusade takes you on the hunt for a deadly new breed of killer.


    When I saw the trailer months ago I was very interested in seeing this in Theater but there were many other movies during the summer that we wanted to see so we decided to wait until it was on DVD. So when Blockbuster Canada had their going out of business sale I just had to get this on BluRay.

    I love this kind of dark and vampire movies and I very much loved this movie.I was glued to the tv and now I want to read the graphic novel and I am thinking of buying them as soon as I get the chance.

    If you are like this kind of movie then I think you might like this one as well.

    * I have purchased this movie with my own money and this is my own personal opinion about this movie*

    Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. Season 1 Volume 3

    The adventures of a talking dog and his four human pals as they try to unravel the strange and haunted history of their hometown. The tone is comedic, but it will never lose the edge that our heroes are in some frightening situations. The stakes are real.

    Own It On DVD October 7th 2011.

    I have been a big Scooby-Doo fan since I was a little girl.I have already reviewed volume 1 and I have actually watched a lot of the episodes from this season on television. I have seen some of the other series and I have to say in my opinion Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated is one of the best so far.
    If you liked Scooby-Doo as a child you will most likely like this one and I think your children will love it as well.
