The Friday 56 (With Instagram 56 & Book Beginnings)



The Burial Hour

Jeffery Deaver

is my feature book for the #Friday56 Bookish Meme with Freda. I’m also taking part in Book Beginnings, a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader.


You can add this book to Goodreads here (opens new tab).


I’m really excited about this book, as I’ve been a Deaver fan for years and I am now going to host the man himself on this blog May 7th, when he tours!!   Add this date to your diaries, please!

Also, I have to apologise for not going around many blogs for last week’s meme. I decided to throw myself downstairs and sprain both knees and ankles. No joke. Even working under a laptop was too painful to do…

No, Honestly. It’s not just a lame excuse. I’m actually now lame… 

They tell me I’m getting better, each day….  Anyway, enough of my woes, back to the meme!

Here are a couple of sentences from page 56:

Relief immediately replaced panic, though the anger – at himself – remained.            Sachs was staring back, somewhat eerily, her eyes focused only in his general direction.

Book Beginnings:

Sitting in the control center of Algonquin Consolidated Power and Lights’s sprawling complex on the East River in Queens, New York, the morning supervisor frowned at the pulsing red words on his computer screen. CRITICAL FAILURE.

#Review: Where The Animals Go: Tracking #Wildlife with Technology in 50 #Maps and Graphics ~ James Cheshire


Where The Animals Go: Tracking Wildlife with Technology in 50 Maps and Graphics by James CheshireWhere The Animals Go: Tracking Wildlife with Technology in 50 Maps and Graphics

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This review is from: Where The Animals Go: Tracking Wildlife with Technology in 50 Maps and Graphics (Hardcover)

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme.

I am reviewing the Where The Animals Go: Tracking Wildlife with Technology in 50 Maps and Graphics by James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti. Here are my thoughts:

^^ This book is about a new era, one in which the traces they follow are imprinted not in the earth but in the silicon of computer chips.

^^ Where The Animals Go mixes conservation, wildlife and habitats with the secret lives of animals as their journeys are tracked and mapped with often surprising results. It’s loaded with information about the animals and their tracking data.

^^ From the “Elephant Who Texted Help”, and “Jaguars Taking Selfies” (believe me, there’s some great tales about these) to “The Zebras Migrating Once More”, we are provided with a wealth of information involving details of national parks, reserves and wildlife management across the globe.

^^ This hardcover can be dipped into like a coffee table book, but the detail is in the data and this is where it really comes into play, because the text makes for a fascinating read, alongside the informative maps and pictures. Some of the maps even unfold to make a larger three page spread.

^^ If there was one thing I’d change it would be the cover, considering the information and data inside, the cover looks a bit unappealing and 70s style old-fashioned.

Overall: The information provided within is visually wonderful, with some real ‘wow’ insights that make this an ideal coffee table book for not only animal lovers but conservationists and conversationalists!

One glance is all it takes

From the moment his eyes meet hers across the crime-scene tape, ex-con turned bodyguard Quasar Patterson knows he has to see the mysterious Dr. Randi Fuller again. She’s a renowned psychic investigator who can foresee danger for others, but not for herself. That makes Quasar doubly determined to watch over her—the closer, the better—as she’s drawn into a dangerous gang rivalry.
Both her psychic gift and their blinding chemistry tell Randi that she and Quasar are fated to be entwined. Even as they surrender to the heat between them, there’s no guarantee of a happily-ever-after now that an enemy has her in his sights. And claiming a future will take more than Quasar’s strength and skill. If he can’t risk the heart he’s always held in check, they’ll both lose for good…

#Review: Plenish: Fuel Your Ambition: Plant-based #juices & meal plans to #power your #goals


Plenish: Fuel Your Ambition: Plant-based juices and meal plans to power your goals by Kara Rosen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This review is from: Plenish: Fuel Your Ambition: Plant-based juices and meal plans to power your goals (Paperback)

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme.

I am reviewing the Plenish: Fuel Your Ambition: Plant-based juices and meal plans to power your goals. Here are my thoughts:

^^ Well I have to say that I’m one of those people who loves setting goals, and eating healthy. So when I discovered this book that oddly mixes both for a healthy lifestyle, it intrigued me.

^^ Author Kara M.L. Rosen starts the book discussing topics like fuelling your raw ambition, success and dreaming big, whilst maintaining a healthy goal-focussed lifestyle.

^^ She talks about a new breed entrepreneurs who are driven by passion not financial award and view their health and lifestyle as the physical and emotional foundation on which to build their success. This then leads on to “plenishing” your body with healthy plant recipes and smart plans; eating for a strong mind and body.

^^ From the juices and foods to gluten free gut and brain healthy meals and motivating roots, this book’s theme is both inspiring and healthy and can cover a wealth of information for anyone needing to succeed in their goals. Whether it’s to run a marathon, lose weight or get that well-deserved promotion.

^^ This first time I’ve come across a book that mixes health with success and while it may be not a totally new concept, it’s certainly a unique way to get empowered.

^^ There is even a section where some of the world’s most inspirational business leaders have shared what fuels their ambition, each with their own recipe to share.

^^ Alongside the recipes there are some colourful and delicious looking photos. There are also some useful tips, too. For example the author explains things like why you should always chose organic for some fruit and vegetables that are more exposed to dangerous pesticides. She also explains which plants are less of a worry, because they have a natural protective layer.

^^ I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did. In particular, I rather enjoyed the three programmes at the back. They’re easily followed and can be changed to suit certain dietary requirements.

Overall: Plenish is a really fun book to guide you through your goals and with over 40 raw, cold-pressed, juice blends and goal focused menu plans you should have enough, as they say, to fuel your ambition, press on and crush it!
