  • Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag
    Author: Oliver Bowden  Published By: Ace Books  Reviewed by Melissa Minners                I love Assassin’s Creed for the fact that the video game combines a great deal of real history with the fictional events placed in them.  In other words, this is a historical fiction video game.  Now, granted, I haven’t played the game yet…I’mContinue reading “Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag”
  • Star Wars: Thrawn Ascendancy: Chaos Rising
    Author: Timothy Zahn Publisher: Del Rey Reviewed By: Melissa Minners                I love Timothy Zahn’s writing, particularly his work in the Star Wars Universe.  He created one of the best, most well-rounded Star Wars villains in Grand Admiral Thrawn.  He also created one of the best heroines in Mara Jade, but that is not theContinue reading “Star Wars: Thrawn Ascendancy: Chaos Rising”

  • Bushkill Falls
    By Melissa Minners             My love for nature began as a young child.  Every visit to the Bronx Zoo was an adventure.  We’re not talking about the modern Bronx Zoo, although I still love visiting there.  We’re talking about the zoo as it was when I was a child when there were more wooded areas,Continue reading “Bushkill Falls”

    Author: Timothy Zahn  Published By: Del Rey Books  Reviewed by Melissa Minners                I haven’t read a Star Wars book in a while, so I decided to check out one of the new books I recently purchased at the local Barnes & Noble.  But which one…well, that was an easy choice.  I had just purchasedContinue reading “Star Wars: Thrawn: Alliances”
  • Forgive Us
    Written By: E.T. Gunnarsson Published By: Bragi Press Reviewed By: Melissa Minners                I was offered an opportunity to review a new post-apocalyptic novel on Netgalley, but I wasn’t sure I wanted to read it.  Then I really took a look at the cover on which we see the back of a young girl facingContinue reading “Forgive Us”
  • Pizzamania
    By Melissa Minners              Summertime and the living’s easy…and hot.  Who wants to cook this time of year?  Being on the run whenever we’re not at work…or even at work…we want something to eat that’s easy and has a lot of flavor.  Something that could just feed one person or a whole family and canContinue reading “Pizzamania”

    Written By: Noa C. Walker Translated by Lisa Reinhardt Publisher: Amazon Crossing Reviewed By: Melissa Minners                What if…?  What if you kept walking despite knowing someone was in desperate need of help?  What if you decided it was none of your business?  Too many people see others on the street and ignore their unspokenContinue reading “You, Me, and the Colors of Life”

  • We All Scream for Ice Cream!
    Written By: Melissa Minners             For as long as I can remember, ice cream has been my favorite dessert.  Who doesn’t remember begging their parents for money the minute they heard the familiar song that accompanied the neighborhood ice cream truck.  Back then, it was Mister Softee who would drive around our neighborhood and myContinue reading “We All Scream for Ice Cream!”
