This is my favorite season of the year. I love the Fall. It is time to get out the warmer clothes and dress in layers, open up the windows in the house and let the fresh air in and get out my crock pot so that my family can come home to a hot dinner already made for us.
This cookbook has over 100 recipes for the slow cooker. The title is not ingenious but the recipes sound delicious. The images throughout the book are mouth watering. Now, this is from Martha Stewart so I know that not all the ingredients will be easy to find or inexpensive but I know I can substitute them for things that I can get. I can’t wait to dig deeper into this cookbook and feed my family delicious meals without taking away valuable time to cook them.
I give this book 5 crowns.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from Blogingforbooks.com
This book was fantastic. I am now obsessed with learning more about deciphering what one’s handwriting says about them and their personalities. This was an interesting read as it provided samples from everyday people as well as infamous criminals.
This was easy to read and very descriptive. I will be looking for more books on this topic.

This was a fairly short book about how Rachel came to the yoga lifestyle. She had gone through some things in her childhood that made her act out in her teenage years. She does talk about that time and then how she came to find yoga and what it did for her life.
This book is interspersed with photographs of poses, instructions, and recipes. Rachel began posting her photos on Instagram @Yoga_girl and earned a huge following of people. She not only posted photos of her doing yoga but she also wrote a lot about her life struggles.
This was a good read and I gave it 4 crowns.
I picked this book up at the Dollar Tree and then found it on Overdrive to listen to in my car. I had no expectations going into this book since I had no real idea of what it was about.
This is a story about a woman who grew up in a household in which all of the past generations of women on her maternal side have dies early due to cancer. Amy has always known that she was a high risk for ovarian cancer and had a plan to have children and remove her ovaries by a specific time in her life.
This sounds like a morbid book but it really was more about the familial bond and the love and survival skills that each woman in Amy’s family have. Yes, it was heartbreaking but it was also empowering because each woman could decide for herself what the best thing for their family would be.
I liked this book and it was well written and entertaining. I know that sounds weird to say that a book about living with a cancer risk is entertaining but it wasn’t all about that. It was about life.
I gave this book 4 crowns.
From its creation, to its witness to the fresh ardor of lovers, the drudgery of businessmen, the various hopes of the many who enter its orbit, the park bench weathers all seasons. Strangers meet at it for the first time. Paramours carve their initials into it. Old friends sit and chat upon it for hours. Others ignore the bench, or (attempt to) sleep on it at night, or simply anchor themselves on it and absorb the ebb and flow of the area and its people.
Christophe Chabouté’s mastery of the visual medium turns this simple object into a thought-provoking and gorgeously wrought meditation on time, desire, and the life of communities all across the planet. This could be a bench in my hometown or yours—the people in this little drama are very much those we already recognize.
