Book Summary:

I have always had a good imagination and my stories are fiction made up in my mind, a small idea that grows step by step into a finished article re-written several times. As I have become older, I feel that I have become more intelligent, a craving for knowledge has taken place with the help of a computer course and a good dictionary. Some of my stories reflect how the mind can play tricks upon us by playing with our emotions. Now open the page of your book to find a poem called To Be. Please add your own 'To Be' if you would like. My stories are unusual, I hope you will enjoy them in your own way. They are superfood for the mind, so use your mind or lose it.

Book Summary:

Some Weather Wardens control fire, others control earth, water, or wind – and the most powerful can control more than one element. Without Wardens, Mother Nature would wipe humanity off the face of the earth... Joanne Baldwin is a Weather Warden. Usually, all it takes is a wave of her hand to tame the most violent weather. But now Joanne is trying to outrun another kind of storm: accusations of corruption and murder. So she’s resorting to the very human tactic of running for her life. Her only hope is Lewis, the most powerful Warden. Unfortunately, he’s also on the run having stolen not one but three bottles of Djinn – making him the most wanted man on earth. Still, Joanne and her classic Mustang are racing hard to find him – because there’s some bad weather closing in fast...

Book Summary:

The witty novel AN ILL WIND BLOWS whisks you inside the belly of a Storm who would be King. There an oddball bunch of nutty characters encounter a nonstop marathon of the bizarre where anything could happen, including some of the wildest imaginings from author Lori R. Lopez (THE FAIRY FLY, THE STRANGE TAIL OF ODDZILLA, THE DARK MISTER SNARK).This unique adventure depicts one night when an ordinary person lacking confidence must battle a Wicked Wind. The stakes are high as she, along with friends and foes, travels through a magical Stormworld that culminates in a ghost town populated by more than just spirits. ILL WIND is a story that keeps delivering action and fun throughout, a fable as whimsical and unconventional in style as it is in plot. More than a single tale in a single genre, the book blends Humor, Fantasy, Adventure, Suspense, and Horror.From the time the characters are sucked into the Storm, the reader is transported with them on a strange chaotic trek. Meezly finds herself tangled in a web of chills and intrigue as she attempts to search for a mysterious gem called The Cursed Eye, which her missing father entrusted her to safeguard. The stone was used by a Sumerian king to transform an evil Jinn from a wind spirit to a vainglorious force.The female protagonist is introduced as a vulnerable individual struggling to overcome debilitating losses. Meezly stumbles through a gauntlet of thirteen macabre tribulations down a forest highway. Twists and madness abound during her eclectic hectic journey of the soul. It is a lighthearted yet touching trek that readers may wish to take again.This Illustrated Print Edition features odd and vivid artwork by the author.

Book Summary:

*Shortlisted for the 2020 Arthur Ross Book Award* From America’s leading scholar of democracy, a personal, passionate call to action against the rising authoritarianism that challenges our world order—and the very value of liberty Larry Diamond has made it his life's work to secure democracy's future by understanding its past and by advising dissidents fighting autocracy around the world. Deeply attuned to the cycles of democratic expansion and decay that determine the fates of nations, he watched with mounting unease as illiberal rulers rose in Hungary, Poland, Turkey, the Philippines, and beyond, while China and Russia grew increasingly bold and bullying. Then, with Trump's election at home, the global retreat from freedom spread from democracy's margins to its heart. Ill Winds' core argument is stark: the defense and advancement of democratic ideals relies on U.S. global leadership. If we do not reclaim our traditional place as the keystone of democracy, today's authoritarian swell could become a tsunami, providing an opening for Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, and their admirers to turn the twenty-first century into a dark time of despotism. We are at a hinge in history, between a new era of tyranny and an age of democratic renewal. Free governments can defend their values; free citizens can exercise their rights. We can make the internet safe for liberal democracy, exploit the soft, kleptocratic underbelly of dictatorships, and revive America's degraded democracy. Ill Winds offers concrete, deeply informed suggestions to fight polarization, reduce the influence of money in politics, and make every vote count. In 2020, freedom's last line of defense still remains "We the people."

Book Summary:

Gabriella Berryngton is an unhappy and oppressed fourteen-year-old girl living in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1683. She dreams of escaping her bitter, ambitious stepfather and sailing off into the unknown. Her dreams come true when her stepfather sells her into marriage. Aboard the Freyja, she is hopeful that her new life in the Dutch West Indies will be an improvement - a hope that dies when she is given a slave, Klara, and a whip. She discovers that her soon-to-be father-in-law is a ruthless slave trader in league with pirates, and her fiance is cold, unfriendly and disinterested in Gabriella. She is little more than a vessel to provide the next generation of van Eckens. Largely ignored and desperately unhappy, she and Klara develop a friendship which makes life bearable - at first. Once married, Gabriella's life takes a turn for the worse and she descends into a world of horror and abuse until tensions finally explode. Life will never be the same and she has no choice but to take fate into her own hands.

Book Summary:

A timeless and celebrated children’s classic, Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows has delighted for nearly 100 years. In the idyllic English countryside, Mole, Badger, Rat and Toad encounter adventure at every turn—whether it’s gipsy caravans, Rat’s love for the river, or Toads passion for motorcars, the loveable friends and their escapades continue to delight children and adults alike. The novel is notable for its mixture of mysticism, adventure, morality, and camaraderie and celebrated for its evocation of the nature of the Thames valley. With the arrival of spring and fine weather outside, the good-natured Mole loses patience with spring cleaning. He flees his underground home, emerging to take in the air and ends up at the river, which he has never seen before. Here he meets new friends like the Water Rat and Mr Toad. Toad is rich, but conceited. His motorcar obsession drives him into big trouble.
