5 Stars for Incubation by Laura DiSilverio A Fantastic Fantasy Read

I reread this book before starting book 2 in the trilogy and I loved it just as much as the first time. Here is my review.

Incubation book 1 in the Incubation Trilogy by Laura DiSilverio is a futuristic dystopian fantasy book that is believable and hard to put down. It keeps you in suspense and on the edge of your seat as you run with Jax, Wyck and Halla to escape with them from the Kube. It is a fast moving and suspenseful read and whether you are a young adult or an adult you will enjoy this read.

The world is not the same since the great epidemic. Children are taken from their famly and made to live in a Kube and taught what the Pragmatists, who are the powers to be, want them to learn to go into careers they chose for them. They have no choices but what is chosen for them. This is where the story gets interesting because Jax doesn't know who her parents are and she desperately wants to. Wyck doesn't want to be made to be in the military and Halla is pregnant with her boyfriends baby and doesn't want her child taken from her since they didn't have permission to have a child. This is what leads up to the three of them running from the Kube. Will Jax, Wyck and Halla survive? Will they achieve what they set out to achieve? What kind of trouble is waiting for them? These and other questions is what this book will explore and take you on their journey to survive and get away.

This is a fast paced, futuristic and believable book about a dystopian society. It keeps you guessing and rooting for Jax, Wyck and Halla.  It is a nail bitter at times and emotional at other times. It is a very good read for adults and young adults. If you like sci-fi futuristic books you will want to read this book and series. I highly recommend it. If you were a big fan of Hunger Games then I think you will be a fan of this one too. I  can't wait to read the next two books.

Wonderful Intriguing Journey

The Hidden Treasure Of Dutch Buffalo Creek by Jackson Badgenoone is a wild interesting adventure that you get caught up in while feeling like you are learning with James. It is a fantastic read. It not only explores different experiences of history but also is a learning and growing experience in faith.

I highly recommend this book.  It makes you stop and think and is written in a very unique way.

One of my favorite parts is when it is telling how Father Tom tells about the importance of a name " He made a strong point: Whenever God calls someone, He calls them by name." Wow it was a pivotal important message for Mimi but also for me when I think about how God called me by name.

This is a good book that would be wonderful for a book club or small group discussion.

I received this complimentary book from FriesenPress through for my honest opinion and review.

Sizzling 5 Star Mystery in Grilling The Subject by Daryl Wood Gerber

Grilling the Subject (A Cookbook Nook Mystery) by [Gerber, Daryl Wood]

Yee Haw another great book in  Grilling The Subject A Cookbook Nook Mystery by Daryl Wood Gerber.

Crystal Cove is having a Wild West Festival where you can find wild west theme fun throughout the town as well as at the CookBook Nook where Jenna has cookbooks for all kinds of BBQ and Katie has rustled up some really spectacular bbq western themed recipes that make your mouth water. BBQ, rides, races and all sorts of fun is happening but then when Jennas father's neighbor, the trouble making, land grabbing, irritating Sylvia Gump is murdered and Cary Hart Jennas father is the number one murder suspect then things become unsettling and interesting. Jenna has to clear her father and find out who murdered Sylvia, which could be a number of people who she has made mad at her, before someone else ends up dead and her dad ends up in jail. Can she rope the  killer, prove her dad innocent and insure that the cookbook nook keeps up with the wild west festivies?

This is probably the best book in the series so far. Each one has been good and each one has been better than the last. It is a fun, fast paced, but not predictable mystery that I really enjoyed. It is so easy to picture being in the small town of Crystal Cove and enjoying the Wild West fun and festivities. Coming from a city that has BBQ festivals I really could picture being right in the middle of all of it with the smell of smoking meat and bbq in the air. Then there are the  characters that could be friends of mine and who doesn't want the eccentric intuitive Aunt Vera as part of your family. The all around theme, small town, mystery and characters make this a book you won't want to miss.

If you like a good mystery that has unique characters, an interesting plot and enough surprises and suspects to make it not the usual predictable mystery you will want to read Grilling The Subject.
It also has mouth watering recipes like BBQ muffins, which I can not wait to try and bbq sauce recipes  included in the book and who doesn't like that.

I highly recommend this book and give it 5 stars. It is the 5th book in the series but it can be read as a stand alone if you haven't read the  others. Really though I would recommend  reading them too.

Don't miss out on this book you will enjoy.

I received this book from the author for my honest opinion and review.
