Natalie's Good Fortune by Anthony Fanning

To Review


The year is 1722; a time in which the most notorious pirates to roam the seas have been hunted down, men and women such as Bartholemew Roberts, Charles Vane, Calico Jack Rackam, Anne Bonny, Mary Read, and of course, Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard. There are still many pirates upon the seas however, lesser known but just as dangerous,
pirate captains with names like Edward Low, Thomas Anstis, and John Gow still prowl the trade routes for booty. During this time, sixteen year old Natalie Brennan Satterfield sails for the colonies of America. Her world is destroyed when the ship she sails upon is attacked by a band of ruthless pirates on the Caribbean Sea. Managing a desperate escape, she finds herself marooned on an uncharted speck of an island. She is not alone however, and the pampered and privileged life of the London merchant's daughter is soon filled with adventure and peril as she pushes ever forward to the American coast, finding strength within her heart which she never imagined did exist.

A Circle of Souls by Preetham Grandhi

For Review

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. With the murderer on the loose, the police desperately look for any clues to lead to his identy. Meanwhile, a psychiatrist in a nearby hospital is also in a desperate search to find the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings s devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope. When these two situations converge, they set off an alarming chain of events. In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
