City of Bones: A Review


City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)City of Bones

by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I ventured away from my comfort zone with City of Bones. Though I do not care for the vampire and werewolf thing, I did enjoy this title. I have purchased the second "City of Ashes" to continue in the series. I prefer stand alone titles that have an actual ending as to the trilogy or series sets but this title left off at a decent place that didn't leave the reader completely hanging, waiting for the next in the series... thankfully.

I loved the humor of the character Jace. Only good authors can successfully give their characters distinct personalities and Cassandra Clare definitely pulled it off. Well done. I look forward to City of Bones.

Waters Fall: A Book Review

Waters FallWaters Fall 

by Becky Doughty

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book immensely. It really spoke to me.  Wow, this book truly hit very close to home.  No marriage is perfect. All marriages are work. Waters Fall is based on a family dealing with real life issues, the rise and fall of the waters through life. I highly recommend this title. Well done Ms. Doughty.

Disclaimer: I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley for my honest review.  I would gladly have purchased this title.  This is a great book.

Trigger: Better ansers to Better Questions Lead to Intentional Results: A Review

TRIGGER: Better Answers to Better Questions Lead to Intentional Results



My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"...this is not a book that gives you any answers. It's one that forces you to ask challenging questions that trigger discussions which lead to the best answers for your organization."

This was a very accurate statement. Though there were no new concepts in this management book, it was very good information delivered in an organized in a clean, concise manner.

I would recommend this title to anyone wishing to brush up on his management skills, thinking and processes. It was a quick read and I ended it with many highlights.

I recommend it for any potential or current manager.
