Identities 1: The Aquarius Gambit

Identities 1: The Aquarius Gambit - Charles F. Millhouse I really wanted to like this book, but maybe I've just grown too old for this genre.
I passed it on to my twenty-something son who will write his own review.

Remembrance of Blue Roses

Remembrance of Blue Roses - Yorker Keith I had insomnia & stayed up most of the night reading a couple of books.
I'm very glad that I decided to read this one . Very touching & moving.
I really wish I was capable of writing a decent review.
I typically only leave stars because I feel I cannot come up with the words needed to adequately describe how much I enjoyed a book.
This is one book I enjoyed enough to leave a very heartfelt, yet awkward review.

The Estrogen Window: The Breakthrough Guide to Being Healthy, Energized, and Hormonally Balanced--Through Perimenopause, Menopause, and Beyond

The Estrogen Window: The Breakthrough Guide to Being Healthy, Energized, and Hormonally Balanced--Through Perimenopause, Menopause, and Beyond - Mache Seibel As a perimenopausal female, I find this book to be quite informative.
My own mother is recent uterine cancer survivor and I have at least three direct female relatives who have died from complications due to other gynecological cancers.
As the author states, "You will learn about the good about estrogen, the bad about it, and most importantly, the timing of it."
Although I still haven't made any final decisions concerning hormone replacement therapy,
I now have a few more questions and topics I will bring up during my next visit with my gynecologist this summer .
I cannot be more thankful to have an opportunity to read this book. I received an ARC copy of this book through Goodreads

Cash Kat

Cash Kat - Linda Singleton, Christina Wald A book that teaches philanthropy and volunteering has it's own rewards. I haven't read it to my grand daughters yet, but I do look forward to sharing it with them.
There is also a section about money, coin, decimals, counting, & litter at the end.
Cash Kat combines civic lessons, math lessons, and a good time reading all up in one.
I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway.

The Astronaut Wives Club

The Astronaut Wives Club - Lily Koppel Loved it. I really wish I had read the book before watching the series.
