Review: Voopyre [#folktale #paranormal]

Voopyre by N.C. Stow
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

You know how your grandma tells you stories when you're a little kid? Like maybe hundreds of stories. You know how the stories would all interconnect, based on bits and pieces of each other that you already know? You'd soon come to know the settings, the characters, the situations. Eventually the stories could become so intertwined that no one new to the sequence could hear just one out of context and make any sense out of it, because all the characters or character classes are described in different stories you didn't hear.

That's what this feels like. If you don't mind not knowing quite what's going on, and what every type of character represents, then this is a cute fun little romp of a story. Well worth the fifteen minutes or so of reading it, assuming you also got it for free.

Review: Money: The Healthy #Habits Of #Money #Management For Your Personal Financial Freedom

Money: The Healthy Habits Of Money Management For Your Personal Financial Freedom by June Joseph
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Do you remember several years ago there was a wildly successful book about the irrationally large number of secret, hidden, almost invisible millionaires lurking about disguised as our meek, mild-mannered neighbors?

Remember that the secret was that they refused to spend even a dime on anything that might be considered even remotely superfluous and instead tucked it away whatever was left after paying off their bills early into high interest, low availability accounts?

Well this is a slightly more moderate approach to managing your expenditures in an intelligent manner that allows you some small measure of fun. I'm being mildly facetious here, but not by much. If the "never spend a dime" mantra is definitely not going to work for you, this is totally worth taking a look at in this very short read.

Why 4? This 30,000' view could be brought down a lot …

Review: Wilder (Guardians Book 1) [#paranormal]

Wilder by G.K. DeRosa
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great story. Protagonist easy to identify with. Antagonists not so much. In fact they were rather cardboard cutout. Warmed up to Vamp Bros over time. A little bit youngish with the general tone and language - suitable for tweeners if they're not squeamish at all. Speaking of which it's really clean and not too gory.

The Guardian Club seemed a bit stand-offish. Want to see more Dani.

Minor cliffhanger, and I might break down to get the next.
