    When He Was Bad []  2020-11-5 18:35

    In the first story by Shelly Laurenston, we read about Irene, a genius who rivals Einstein in her smarts and Niles Van Holtz, a laid back, amazing time ene teaches college and Niles’ family regularly donates to it. Niles has crushed on Irene since he first saw her and she has shut him down every is was a really funny story and the banter between Niles and Irene will create you e second story by Cynthia Eden, Cain a newly retired FBI agent moves in next door to Miranda.Miranda gets a crash course in all things supernatural as she learns that vampires and shifters are real, as Cain helps Miranda to catch the date, who turned out to be a vampire that would have killed her if Cain hadn’t saved h stories were good, well written and I look forward to reading more from both authors.

    Dear Lord support me,but I want I could slap some sense into this stupid,stupid e was soo lost in some form of etiquette and protocol, I just found her down right rder line TSTL quite honestly.I know things were various back in the day,things often moved at a slower pace but dear gods ,at 60% the book this stupid,stupid,stupid fool was just as clueless or maybe more so than she was at the beginning of the book.Ok,happy satisfied newlyweds ,( married two years but still) ,living in their small bubble ,both of course unaware that their best mate and companion and cousin is in madly in love with en John ( cousin/husband ) dies suddenly. He’s gone by the chapter and the rest of the book is aboutHell, I don’t remember or is is supposed to be a “romance “ . Now I know Historical romances move at a various pace than almost any other. Especially contemporary romance or paranormal or sci/fi with aliens and soo a lot of a lot of others . And dear lord,while I surely do not expect or even what an insta love here ( not that I mind when done right) I should at least feel like a bloody e first half of the book is about mourning and loss and you just can’t force a faster pace on that. You just can’t. And while I obtain why Micheal felt he had to be a coward and run away from her for so long,their guilt and stupidity angers and frustrates is is NOT the book I was hoping for . To me “When he was Wicked” to be never implied to ppl who spend at least 60% so stupid and ignorant of themselves as their own feelings and each other they wouldn’t even be on the street to acknowledging each other much less couple-hood. All the Bridgertons have been awkward in their on method but they’ve all been entertaining and interesting in their own ways,even when they were being soo stubborn or short sighted you just wanted to smack them. Especially Anthony in arrogance or Benedict in his shortsightedness ,Colin was my fave and Eloise was frustrating but still funny , Daphne, well she was on Netflix ;)But Francesca she’s boring and obtuse. Rigidly independent ,unyieldingly so doesn’t take council or seek tip and lacks common sense. She thinks she knows it all and just present how dumb she is.I was expecting an intelligentsia more mature young woman. A young woman who knew her own mind, a woman who was out of mourning and begin to love and possibilities. A woman who was going to run towards love and embrace life. Not completely blind to love staring her in the face and react with distain because of some odd notion that she must marry some stranger instead of a friend.I’ve read plenty of stores where when the head of a guild died and left a widow an unmarried brother was often expected to step in a marry the widow. I mean just in Daphne’s story ( well the Netflix version) when a distant relation of the Featherington’s was knocked up and single and goes off to marry the brother of the man who’d gotten her that method because her lover was dead. So why is this so various ?Micheal was dumb to at times but Francesca was just so irritating. I’m hating this is isn’t a t sure what it is but not that.

    I honestly can't resist Shelly Laurenston's shifters. They're like furry crack to me. No, wait. That sounds wrong.Anyway.Miss Congeniality - Oh, MAN. Going back to before Van was the Alpha of the Van Holtz package and before he and Irene had mated was HILARIOUS. Mostly because Irene was so wonderfully pragmatic about everything. Literally everything. . Her looks. People who can turn into animals at will. The lady is logical and blunt to a fault and I LOVED her for it. Plus, she's brutally efficient when she needs to be. When surrounded by predators that's not a poor thing to be. At e men are relentless. The women keep their own. The is smokin'. This story was everything I've come to expect from Shelly Laurenston's shifters.Wicked Ways - Miranda and Cain. The human who accidentally gets tangled up with a sadistic vampire and the shifter who takes it on himself to hold her safe. Given that Cain has a deep, deep craving for Miss Miranda, you can probably see how things progress. To be fair, Cain does test to control himself. It's just, you know, hard when the lady of your dreams is teasing your senses.A nasty vampire, a hot-blooded shifter, and the lady who suddenly finds herself smack dab in the middle of a hidden supernatural world. *thumbs up*-Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal

    Excellent, Excellent, Excellent! I really loved the story of Miki's PhD adviser (from the Magnus Package books) and how she got together with her shifter husband. It had so a lot of funny points. It was great. Also y. The brilliant woman gets into hot water with shifters--she has seen too much. The shifters say they could trust her if she was mated to a shifter. The rich wolf shifter character doesn't believe in the mating magic at all. Not at all. So he marks her. He was e second story is also really, really good. It says it is by Cynthia Eden. There is a vampire poor buy and a jaguar shifter amazing guy and the amazing guy saves the lovely lady. The vampire doesn't wish to give up his target, so she needs to be protected, and they need to catch the vampire. I liked how the heroine handled finding out about vampires and shifters. She handled it well, but realistically.

    I read this series a few years back, I started right before book 7 was first published and I'm surprised I haven't reviewed even one of the books yet. I absolutely love this series and recommend these to mates with related interests. Anyway I decided to reread 'When he was wicked" because I remembered this book being my fave from the bunch ('Romancing Mr Bridgerton" is a close second) and I wasn't disappointed (there has been times when I've re-read a book I love only to ask why I loved it in the first put lol). Even after all these years the book is still amazing. Granted I still remembered the necessary parts of the book but it was still really nice to revisit and be touched again by Michael and Frannie's story. I love that it didn't come simple and I just fell in love with Michael all over again and so satisfied that he finally got his HEA. This is an emotional read, at least for me it was. I really fell for these characters and felt their pain, confusion, happiness and everything in between. It absolutely created me wish to re-read the series again.

    I liked this book, but I didn't love it. Michael and Francesca obtain together about 80% into the story, and I really disliked how she handled it. Michael felt used, and she had no thought in her head. When Michael would ask her questions, her response to everything was "I don't know, I don't know." Well, think woman! Use the brain God gave you for a small introspection. I'm not a fan of thoughtless people, not in true life or in e beginning of the book spends quite a bit of time grieving John's death, as it should be. But doesn't create for very satisfied reading. The middle of the book is the best, with lots of friendship and relationship development between Michael and Francesca. In fact, in the middle of the book I was assuming I'd be rating it five stars, but by the end I felt less enchanted with the story. Even the ending is kind of a downer with a congratulatory but sad letter from John's mother. I doubt I'd read this again.I listened to the audiobook and Simon Prebble is a amazing narrator. His pacing is excellent, he has amazing accents for various classes and in Scotland, and he differentiates characters' voices. Some of his inflections and word emphasis was a bit off to me, but overall a fine performance.

    I have just one word for Shelly Laurenston's story, Miss Congeniality, DELIGHTFUL! It is a solid 5 stars. This novella has everything: humour, action, and love. Irene is a science genius who has only connected to one person emotionally, her vest friend, Jackie. Niles has been circling her for years. Cirtances let them to catch each other. It is definitely mutual, no matter how a lot of protests they nthia Eden's story, Wicked Ways, is a 3 1/2. I didn't connect as closely to the characters. The writing is good. Miranda is not having a amazing first date. He turns out to be a vicious killer. But in comes Cain, her next door neighbor, to the rescue. They've wanted each other and hunting a assassin is just the excuse they need to have each other.Overall, this book is a 4.

    Okay, this review is only for Shelly Laurenston's "Miss Congeniality ". I only purchased the book for Shelly's story and it's the only one I read. And I so loved it!! The heroine, Professor Irene Conridge, was the absolute best!! She so reminded me of Lilith Crane from "Cheers", yes, I know I took it back to the 80s, but so did Shelly with this story!!For those who have read this author's books, you know how unconventional and absolutely insane her heroines can be and Irene is no exception. After reading all of this author's books, from Pride to Magnus Package to those Dragons, I thought about which heroine would emerge victorious in an all out war royale!!! The obvious respond would be Annwlyn from "Dragon Actually", or Sara from "Pack Challenge, or even Dee from "Big Poor Beast", but you would be wrong. I say the champion would be Professor Irene Conridge, hands down!!!!!!!!!! While everyone else would be in the ring coming to blows with their swords, bowie knives, fists, feet, tails, and even fire, Irene, with her 180 IQ, would be waiting patiently outside the ring, just watching for the right time to detonate one of her indestructible, lab created pipe bombs that would annihilate them all!!!! Insanely smart, brutally honest, unapologetically abrasive, unintentionally hilarious - that woman is my hero!!!!! And I loved her and Niles Van Holtz together. They really completed one another! In typical Shelly fashion, the romance, the action, the hilarity was never-ending!!!! Once again, well done, Shelly!!!

    Two novellas created up this book. The first was Miss Congeniality by Shelly Laurenston. Powerful alpha werewolf meets genius human. The sparks flew. The humor caught my attention. The action held it. Will test some of her other nthia Eden wrote the second novella, Wicked Ways. Being one of my favorite writers, I found the style of the book right up my alley. The human female is saved by the alpha male shifter from a out-of-control vampire. He realizes she is his friend and not only saves her, but claims e romance, action, and dialogue were excellent in both novellas.

    Ok, so I'd originally listed this as 4 stars. I believe, in my younger years, where I had much less experience in life and with men, I couldn't fully appreciate the plot of this book. But now I'm a bit older, I really really loved it!I loved that Michael was already in love with Francesca before the book began. Every Bridgerton book before this one, the character had already decided that he wasn't going to fall in love. But this book was so various having Michael be in love with his cousin's was kind of hard reading about John's death and Francesca and Michael's grief. They both dealt with it in various ways, and unfortunately caused a 4 year separation. I loved how when he returned, they were able to pick right up, even with a little amount of awkwardness.I felt like their relationship changing from friendship to mutual desire and becoming lovers had a completely appropriate timeline. And once they started sleeping together, consent was a huge deal to Michael. He would never do anything she didn't agree too. There are three detailed scenes and a couple of fade out scenes.I really loved how they both came to recognize that John would wish his two favorite people to search happiness in each other. It took Francesca a small bit longer, but that created complete sense because of how much she had loved more thing I loved about the story was how Francesca could tell that she loved each man differently, but that didn't mean that she loved either of them any less or any more than the other. It was just different. And that's how love is in true life. Always changing and expanding, but never diminishing.

    The quality of this work; Francesca's story; is both a bit unconventional in that it involves a young widow seeking a second marriage because she wants to be a mother AND because it will make various reactions and emotions in the reader based on the age and life experience of the particular reader. It rather reminded me of the cemetery stage in Lethal Weapon IV where Mel Gibson is talking to his late wife about Lorna and Leo tells the story of his pet frog. For the younger reader who married relatively young and had a amazing marriage, there is more of a possibility that they will understand and empathize with the heroine's reluctance to risk marriage; any marriage but particularly a marriage with someone connected to her late husband. For the older reader who has experienced a amazing marriage that either ended suddenly or ended badly and then was fortunate enough to search a mature, experienced man who truly cared for them -the reader may obtain a bit "miffed" and impatient at her reluctance and wishy-washy mindset.[ For myself I wanted to do a Moonstruck slap and tell her to "snap out of it!" and don't be stupid. Grab Michael with both hands and don't allow go; I did and never looked back! ] But hold persevering because it gets REALLY amazing at the end - with one exception; no epilogue. I don't wish to spoil the ending but you'll know how I [email protected]#$%! had concluded.

    This two book set is a collaboration between two well known paranormal romantic suspense authors. The first, Miss Congeniality by Shelly Laurenston ( one of very few authors I will pre-order) is set in 1984 and features wolf shifter alpha male Niles Van Holtz and human genius, biophysicist Irene Conridge, PhD. Somehow I missed this book when it came out, but I'm satisfied I found it now as it tells the story of two very supportive characters within the series. There were parts where I laughed and parts where I rolled my eyes, but overall it's a amazing e second book is Wicked Ways by Cynthia Eden. It features Miranda Shaw, a human, high school computer teacher, out for summer break. Because of poor luck with men, she signed up on an online dating site, but her poor luck continues when her matched date grows fangs and attacks her. A fresh neighbor, Cain Lawson, a panther shifter, comes to her rescue and Miranda learns that creatures really do exist. It turns out her antiques loving date was a psychopathic vampire, a serial killer, and he got away, to hunt again.

    I tried to avoid it. I don't really like anthologies much. I'd be perfectly satisfied buying individual novella-length ebooks all day long instead of buying an anthology. Issue is, I wanted to read one of the stories in this book more than I didn't wish to buy an was worth it, though. I wasn't as happy with Eden's Wicked Ways as I was with Laurenston's Miss Congeniality, but the two novellas combined for a solid read overall and I'm glad I read it.Miss Congeniality by Shelly LaurenstonMagnus Pack, Book 3.55 StarsIt's 1984, and for seven long years the prince of the Van Holtz family, Niles Van Holtz, has shamelessly pursued brilliant Ph.D. and college professor Irene Conridge. A former kid prodigy and world-renowned physicist but about as removed from socially adept as a person could be, Irene doesn't understand why Van Holtz bothers. It's not like she hasn't created her general annoyance with his existence perfectly clear. Nor is she any sort of beauty. Still, the man with enough females swooning after him to begin his own cult just keeps popping into her private zone whenever she's at an happening for the school. Him and that arrogance of his, which surely has its own zip n is quite satisfied being a total hound with the ladies. He has no intention of settling down and is quite content with his life, which is split between managing the top Van Holtz restaurant with his sister and making time with as a lot of lucky ladies as he wants. Still, there's something about the pale-eyed, @#$%!y, brilliant Irene that calls to the wolf in him. Has ever since he first caught scent of her all those years ago. He can't support teasing her and poking at her at every turn. Her certainly wants to bed her.When he's on his method home from an happening that...well...didn't end so well considering the stitches he's going to have to have, he sees Irene's vehicle parked near his pack's territorial borders. Borders shared with a pride of lion shifters and a package of hyena shifters. And Irene is nowhere to be found. That's about when things for Niles Van Holtz, future Van Holtz package alpha, and professor Irene Conridge, brilliant physicist, begin to go to the dogs.~*~Here is incontrovertible proof of just how huge a fan I am of Laurenston's work. I have no fondness for prequels, to start, and just the thought of reading a prequel after I've read other books in the series timeline makes my OCD-having butt breaking out in hives. I'm huge on series timeline order. I search it ill, here I am, gobbling up Miss Congeniality. And gobble I did. I squealed and laughed, giggled and gasped. For the record, Laurenston tends to have that affect on me. Hell, I even laughed over the reader's note she wrote for the forward! Her humor is just my kind of e's a damn amazing storyteller, too. I haven't been quite as thrilled with the romance threads in her latest two full-length books as I have in all the others, but this one takes me right back to Happytown. I loved Irene and Van. I loved their characters (they have some amazing banter), I loved their romance, I loved the 80's flashbacks (though I could live my entire life cheerfully forgetting the hairstyles of the day), and I loved the few threads of danger and suspense that added some depth to the fact, I loved absolutely everything about this small gem, and I was very impressed with the seamless attention to detail as Laurenston bridged this novella to a stage in the second book in the Magnus Package series. Everything fit perfectly. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Laurenston books (including those she writes as G.A. Aiken) are my crack and I'm happily addicted. She always leaves me wanting more.Wicked Ways by Cynthia Eden3 StarsAs far as first dates go, Miranda Shaw has had better. Much, much better. The man she met online turned out to be worse than even the most horrific horror story. In fact, he's not a man at all, but a blood-thirsty monster. A creature that Miranda hadn't believed existed until he sank his fangs into her neck and started to drink. That's when Miranda started to scream.He'd moved into his fresh house five days ago and Cain Lawson had been dreaming of his y neighbor since she introduced herself and brought him cookies. There was something about the beautiful Miranda that draws him and strokes the fur of the jaguar inside him. Hearing her horrified scream, though, and busting into her house to see a vampire feeding from her, makes former FBI agent and shifter Cain go all kinds of e attack on Miranda takes on a more sinister meaning when the vampire who attacked her is identified and turns out to have a dark and deadly human past. Now that he's a vampire, he's infinitely more risky and harder to stop. And he's got Miranda in his sights.~*~I'm a long-time fan of Eden's dark paranormal world. I've always enjoyed how her multiple paranormal series and books exist within the same globe with the same mythos, so just the stories and characters are changing. It makes it very simple to slip into a fresh story without needing too much world-building. That also benefited me in this novella, where I didn't need page time wasted on a lot of exposition.Eden's edgy, y romance fiction leans towards a darker edge than Laurenston's, but Wicked Ways was still a amazing pick for the pairing. I just had problem warming up to the storyline in this one. The characters were okay. Neither got on my nerves too much, but I wasn't totally sold on the supposed depth of their feelings for each other as their relationship evolved.Without a doubt Eden writes smoking hot scenes, but in this case, one or two fewer would have allowed for a more well-defined suspense plotline, or there could have been room for added hero development and more focus on the emotion of the romance instead of the . It's not that I actually disliked anything I read in this novella, but nothing really wowed me, either, and Miranda's involvement in capturing the vampire strained plausibility. This one was an okay read.~*~*~*~Reviewed for One Amazing Book Deserves Another.

    Wow! I cannot believe anyone would give this book negative reviews. It was such a GREAT read, I did not wish to place it down. It was real, real and I could see facing the wars they did in this book. Yes, it was various than the others so far in this series and the only one I have taken the time to write a review on, because I really think it has been the BEST so far from this series!!! I'm reading the series in order. I think Julia Quinn out did herself in "When He was Wicked". I have loved all the books so far, but this one is very various in a very touching, loving, fabulous way. Do not let any of the negative reviews hold you from this love affair or you'll miss a amazing story!! Yes, you may shed a few tears, but it is SOOOOO worth it!!!!

    Frannie Bridgerton wants nothing as much as to be her own person. In the middle of 8 siblings she gets the one love story we don't obtain to see at first. In Eloise's book she gets mentioned a amazing bit but she never plays an active role because we search out she has already married and become a widow. In this story she gets her second love story with her desire for kids being so much in the forefront. I gave this one 5 stars not necessarily because of the love story, all the problems could have been resolved had they character and heroine just talked to each other but because the secondary story with Francesca. She was having problems with infertility and she wanted a child. Going through this myself right now created this story private in a method that the others weren't necessarily. I could feel her emotions when she said I wish a kid of my own and it created me wish her satisfied ending. When it came I was thrilled, and the second epilogue was probably better than the first. I also fell deeply in love with Violet Bridgerton through this story. Her love for her kids and how amazing of a mother she is just shined through making her the best hero to read to finish out the year.

    After reading the delightful "The Other Miss Bridgerton" I read this book by Julia Quinn. Actually, I listened to it first and found the characters really compelling - for about 1/2 of the book. (The reader, a man, was excellent! Forgive me for not naming him, I am not deft at doing two things at once on the computer.) However, Francesca's "I don't know"s in response to method too a lot of questions grew very very tiresome and I wanted Michael to finally fall out of love with her. But he was kind of like her too in that he couldn't allow go of his guilt about Colin. The "courting" got kind of icky. It all went on just TOO LONG.

    This was a fun anthology to read. The first story is from a universe I absolutely love and featured characters I'd been wanting to know about. Getting the back story on Niles Van Holz and Irene Conridge filled in some of the holes in the relationships between the characters in books set in the future. Plus, they are just hilarious characters in their own right. I wasn't familiar with the universe of the second story, but I enjoyed it as well. I did think at times that the heroine acted a bit too much like a typical horror film victim, stupidly putting herself in danger. But never enough that it created me wish to quit reading the story because of it.

    Writing does not have a level playing field. Some writers are exemplary and others much less so. This makes the purchase of any anthology a literary crapshoot, although anything with Shelly Laurenston is worth the bet and its very sad that someone like Cynthia Eden must suffer in most other reviewers, I purchased this book because of the back story of Niles Van Holtz and the very human and obscenely blunt Professor Irene Conridge, two seemingly mismatched people who nevertheless proved to be a humerous, y, snarling and gorgeously combustible duo. One of the best things about Shelly Laurenston is that we continually meet and remeet her characters in all her books yet she keeps the dialogue hilarious and brisk, the action and plot explosive and the story lines fun and plausible. It create one want that shapeshifters were true and involved in our everyday cidentally, I've always loved the characterization of the Van Holtz family being the top chefs for the shapeshifter world. That they own Steak Houses all over the country seems appropriate yet is still surprising. In this regard, Niles is not only the family head, but a wolf with very persnickity tastes in meal and the utter cleanliness of his kitchen. You can almost see Irene sneaking around to introduce her children to the joys of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! Talk about fun.

    The Bridgerton series has some enjoyable novels; some entertaining novels; and some that are both enjoyable and entertaining. Sadly, this one is not one of any of them. I found it to be so plodding and lacking that I had to place it down for a week and read something by another author before I could return to it to complete it for a college class review of potential novels for a Women's Literature ancesca is so emotionally dependent, shallow, and immature that she is hardly one to stimulate any sensitivity in a Reader. If Michael Stirling is so emotionally close and valuable to her, then she never really shows that, except to focus on his lips a time or two. Neither hero speaks from the heart and is candid until Colin tells Michael that he may need to begin his heart and consider seducing her. They do not act like functional, and emotionally engaged adults who shared a love for John Stirling, Francesca's late husband. Were Francesca a modern day character, one would suggest some grief therapy for a year or more for her. Lucky for Michael that he has the fortune to go off to India for four years to soothe his wounds, grieve his cousin, drown his sorrows over his separation and unrequited love for Francesca, and obtain malaria. We are treated to a brief discussion on the medical merits of quinine, which was a welcomed relief from Francesca's vacillation and avoidance behaviors. Even after being seduced, having a three plus week series of trysts with Michael, having him bare his soul to her, marrying him, and doing all this with the knowledge of a houseful of servants, she is not willing to verbalize that she loves this unbelievably patient sap until she can have her dead John's blessing in a poorly written mystical episode at John's gravesite. This tedious novel would have - and should have - been a passionate short story of two loves at a tender young age. I was so RELIEVED for it to end; and Francesca was still not on the method to having a baby - something she obsessed over for 3/4 of thenovel.While most of this series of novels rate 3 stars for entertainment; and three actually merit 4 stars for entertainment AND enjoyment, in my opinion, this one barely can claim to be entertaining OR engaging; therefore, 2 stars it is. Read TO SIR PHILLIP WITH LOVE instead!!!!

    My gawd the beginning of this was stilted and boring! I can't believe Julia Quinn even wrote this. The dialogue was repetitious and boring, with lots of what I like to call "filler and fluff". It wasn't until right around the 50% tag that it got better.I really did not care for Francesca at all. It didn't support that she wanted to be away from her family (that we all love to read about!) and she did not care for Michael like he cared (loved) her for most of the book! On the other hand, I adored Michael and my heart damage for him. Michael deserved so much better. I think Julia Quinn went about this all the wrong way~with Francesca being married to someone she was in love with for YEARS of this novel. I would have loved to have seen Michael with someone else. Someone truly deserving of him.

    Once I started reading, I couldn't place it down until I was done. I immediately liked the main characters, and was drawn into the 1990's high school scene. I am looking forward to sharing this one with my teenage daughter so she can obtain a glimpse into the pop culture of my teenage years. The book also created me contemplate how far we have come with LGBTQ+ issues, and how far we still need to go.

    This was short and beautifully sweet. It was exactly what I was looking for right now. I have been working a lot of hours and this book was able to transport me back in time. I would have been about the same age as the boys when this takes put in 1998. I enjoyed being reminded of the pop culture things I had forgotten.

    He Called Me Beautiful []  2020-9-23 20:6

    This book is both sweet and heartbreaking. Sutton and Tyler are so amazing together. Do sweet and innocent in there love but they also broke my heart. The things they faced and the rear they had was real. I wanted to keep them and protect them from ever getting damage and my heart and for every LGBT+ person who had to love through that. Who still love through that. So while these two tell a sweet story of first love, Annabeth Chatwin also gives you something to think about regarding the community. Very well done.

    He Called Me Beautiful []  2020-9-23 20:6

    Easily can read this story in one day. Quick, clean LGBT read.I would have been terrified if I was Tyler and Sutton. Sutton was a super brave hero to me and then Tyler became braver as time went on. It took a lot of courage to stand up to his mates and say something in front of everyone. I’m so glad Tyler had Lacey as a best friend. She seemed like a amazing mate and person to be is story kinda hits a small close to home with my wife and I. Thankfully I haven’t had as a lot of issues as she had growing up. This story was cute but heartbreaking also. I wasn't sure how this story was going to end but it ended on a amazing note. I need more though! Did they survive the dance? Are they still together? Did anything happen to them as time went on?

    Simply Jesus: A New Vision of Who He Was, What He Did, and Why He Matters []  2020-2-4 3:25

    NT Wright-Simply Jesus e book takes us in a very NT wright approach to the gospels and story of Jesus. This means that Wright first gives a huge overview of 2nd temple Judaism and the movements that were occurring at Jesus' time, puts Jesus amidst these Messiah movements and shows how what he did, although having some similarities with others, was quite various for the most part. Wright paints the picture of the excellent storm, with Jewish nationalism, the Roman Empire and Jesus. All of these elements came together and thus we have an awesome set of events. Wright throughout the book tries to hold from agreeing with either the liberal or conservative traditions that would create Jesus into either just a amazing teacher or someone who came for only the spiritual salvation of some. I probably agree with Wright's stance, but sometimes he seems to go too much out of his method to establish that he is not among the more conservative members of the church. I gather this is so that those who are reading would not simply stick him into such a category. What I understand Wright to be saying is that, although the coming of Christ and his work do involve the salvation of individuals, this wasn't the main reason. Rather Christ was starting to bring all creation under His rule, as it should be. This involves humans, principalities and powers, etc.. Thus we shouldn't think of the gospel as an "escape from this world" kind of model, but rather a "Kingdom on earth" in which humans are the agents that God has chosen to use. I agree with the content, Wright is very persuasive and really does build up a amazing case from both the Bible and history, but perhaps I wouldn't take that amount of stress away from "salvation" that he does, considering the Bible does speak of this. I also wonder if in attempts to bring the narrative to more show matters, he neglects the future hope that Christ will come. For those who are persecuted and killed and see their families killed, putting aside the promises of heaven and of final judgment would be harmful. For those who are lazy, the "present" emphasis is helpful, for those who have lost so much already on acc of Christ now, the "future" emphasis is needed. I think there is much more harmony between these two, I think Wright would agree also, but this books stressed one over the other, mainly (I think) due to whom this book is geared towards. What I really enjoyed was some of the interesting history tidbits and comparisons with other messiah movements (ie, Simon, son of the star and Simon bar-Giora (66-70). Wright has a amazing method of making the stories of the Bible become alive by giving us a kind of historical background. Like going to Israel and seeing the land, so also knowing the history makes the stories of the Bible more "alive".In regards to reading the Gospels, the Bible or anything, "we should be prepared to follow where the story leads".In short, while I will sometimes be weary of some of his emphasis away from private salvation, my impression is that it comes from motives to reach people who might have already passed off the Bible as some sort of escape from the globe fluff. And that does resonate with me. And there are people who do neglect much of the kingdom and exclusively go the route of only "spiritual salvation" in a very much "escape from the world" mentality, and so these people (or maybe we all) need to be careful not to neglect necessary parts and teachings of the Bible. So again, while I might personally want for a small more stress on a thing here or there, the contents of what Wright says usually wins me over.

    Simply Jesus: A New Vision of Who He Was, What He Did, and Why He Matters []  2020-2-4 3:25

    This short book pulls threads of history and show cultural beliefs together to give a clear view of Jesus - his life on earth, his death and resurrection, and his activity today. An awesome e book helped me to see clearly what some of the troubling or confusing passages in the Bible were saying, and why they created complete sense. Wow. In addition, the book "kept it simple" so that I could focus on the problems and the meaning of Jesus' life and words, instead of trying to master theological jargon.I've given this book to mates and can recommend it to all seriously interested in a better understanding of Jesus, and of our role as 21st century Christians.

    Simply Jesus: A New Vision of Who He Was, What He Did, and Why He Matters []  2020-2-4 3:25

    Allow me tell you a small story (I promise it's related). When I lived in Korea I went to see Shrek when it first came out in theaters. I went with a fellow American teacher, and we were the only foreigners in the entire packed out theater. 80% of the time we were the only ones laughing at the jokes in the movie. Why? It wasn't because Koreans don't have a sense of humor (they do). It was because the Koreans just didn't obtain the American pop cultural references and so they didn't understand the joke to start with. To obtain them to fully appreciate the humor in Shrek they would have required a crash course in American pop culture prior to the film to even start to understand half the references. My mate and I got those references immediately because we had grown up in America and soaked up those things without even realizing the same method that the Koreans watching Shrek missed a lot of things the creators fully expected the American audience to obtain without any explanation, the Gospels are full of cultural references 1st century readers would have understood immediately without any explanation, but that we modern readers deeply separated by centuries of time and culture don't even realize we are missing. In this book, NT Wright gives a crash course in 1st century thinking. He tries to support us modern readers step into the shoes of a Hebrew living in the Roman empire and see Jesus through those eyes. He takes us back and sets the tone politically (as those living at the time would have seen it). And it is awesome the things we modern readers miss just because we are so separated from that culture.I found this one of the most easily read of NT Wrights longer books I've read. I like his For Everyone Fresh Testament Commentaries because they are easily readable. I have found some of his deeper books more scholarly and much slower reads. But this one is written more like the For Everyone series. Anyone can pick it up and easily obtain through it. You don't need a theological academic background. And what Wright lays out here is extremely necessary and helpful for the modern Church. In the same method you can't really understand a work of Shakespeare without some support understanding the original historical context and audience and method language worked in Shakespeare's day, you can't profess to fully understand the Bible without understanding it's original context and audience. But the modern Church often forgets that and it leads to a lot of misunderstanding and misinterpretation of Scripture. Hopefully this resource will support clarify some of those misunderstandings, and even lead people into a deeper, more rich understanding of the Gospels and who Jesus was and is. I know it helped me see things I've never seen before (and I even have a Bible minor and would read books from my husband's seminary classes with him).

    I am proud to say that Tom Wright, probably the world's most popular biblical scholar, is the mate of a mate in the Lord,even if we only have contact every few years. Some of his work is very lengthy and scholarly, but I think his true talentis in his famous works, which are very readable in the style of C.S. Lewis, but also communicate the deeper ideas ofhis scholarship. From a Catholic perspective, we don't always agree but he's as reliable as most of mply Jesus is largely a meditation on the line from the Our Father, "Thy Kingdom Come On Earth As It Is In Heaven".This is what Wright uses to approach who Jesus was, what he did, what he was about, how his followers understoodhim, and what he means for us. Wright also uses the metaphor of the "perfect storm" to understand both our conditionsin the 21st century, and the lifetime of Jesus in the 1st century. He paraphrases the kingdom of God as God becomingking, or God being in charge. Jesus understood his mission in terms of the books of Isaiah 40-66 (the suffering servantsongs), Zechariah (riding on a donkey) and Daniel (the son of man). Heaven and earth are not completely separateas in the understanding of Plato, but dimensions that interpenetrate, first through the temple where God's presenceenters the earth, and then in the person of Jesus.N.T. Wright is respected among Protestants, Catholics and all kinds of Christians, but will be challenging due to theperfect storm of the 21st century, where a lot of are partisans of the left and the right. For instance, the discussion ofthe rapture will be challenging for a lot of American Christians whose literature has focused on a literal interpretationof one passage of 1 Thessalonians. Wright's Christology doesn't talk much about "divinity", preferring to focus on Christbringing God's kingdom on earth so that God becomes king and God is in charge. The same is real of incarnation andatonement, where he shows how substitution and representation for the people are not opposites but actually gotogether. The later developments of theology are legitimate, but to understand Jesus it is important to enter into the 1stcentury Jewish worldviews. As for the modernist liberal Jesus who brought revolution, it is real that his mission was verypolitical, but that's exactly what his followers got wrong, because the Messiah wasn't political in the method that they expected.He brought a deeper level of transformation than the Pharisees tried to do with their legal reforms. The issue wasn't thatthe Pharisees had rules but that they didn't bring the transformation that Christ did. When he said "my kingdom is not of thisworld" a better translation would be "...from this world", because it is from God but is active here in this world, not just togive proofs of divinity or obtain to heaven. And the risen Jesus is equally at home on earth and in heaven. The Spiritand the Church-Tom shows how some theologians seem to think the Spirit is everywhere except the Church, soit's amazing apologetics to present some of the ways that Christians present love of neighbor. This is part of "God becomingin charge" even though much is wrong in the world, for we have hope that it will be brought to fulfillment in the it is also about heaven, but it is beginning here on earth with Jesus.

    Having read most of what Wright I expected this book to simply be a layman's edition of Jesus and the Win of God with nothing fresh or fresh. Yet I was pleasantly surprised at how new the book was and how it was filled with such common sense interpretations. I found myself saying "Of course! Why didn't I think of that?!" quote often as I read it. This is amazing news for me because I'm often frustrated by the famous level books about Jesus that obtain published. One thinks of Bart Ehrman or Deepak Chopra for part 1 Wright uses the ogy of a excellent storm with various currents of contemporary culture all converging around the person of Jesus to produce a excellent storm. The secular atheistic current eager to stamp out the religion they don't have, claiming Jesus was just a man whose followers created into a god to justify their agenda. Or even worse, Jesus was just a amazing teacher, one of a lot of through the ages. That current clashes with the conservative Christian current which is eager to affirm traditional orthodox Christianity. Wright was correct to say that both of these groups are eager to respond the question "Did it happen or not". For Wright this is reductionistic and we've missed out these happenings might mean. Wright then continues the ogy by describing the globe of the first century into which Jesus was born and in which his actions create sense. There was the Roman storm with their own Gospel of the Lordship of Caesar with peace at the end of a sword. And there was the Jewish storm which told the story of them as God's chosen people, returned to the land but still under "exile" awaiting the return, awaiting the time when God would fulfill his promises. Wright argues that it is in this globe that we can create sense of Jesus' words and actions, why he did what he part 2 Wright then fleshes out the picture of Jesus. In and through the person of Jesus God was indeed taking charge of his globe because it was through Jesus that God's kingdom was coming to earth as it was in heaven. It is through Jesus that we see what God taking charge looks like. It looks like people being healed, set free from demons etc. Wright's discussion of Jesus' parables was also excellent. Jesus told parables not just as illustrations but full of echoes to the Old Testament story and promises that were close to Israel's heart. Through these stories he communicated his revolutionary notice of God's kingdom. I was happy to see Wright's frank discussion of Jesus' battling Satan. Wright carved a path through the demon obsessed and demon-dismissive skeptics that was very well argued. For Wright the War with Satan and the forces of evil was the real war as these are the forces that stood behind the empires of the world, and were even holding Israel captive as they continued in their zealous and violent nationalism.What I love about Wright is that new interpretation doesn't mean heretical as it so often does with others. How often do we hear the claim that the Church has misunderstood Jesus for 2000 years only to be presented with a Jesus that looks more like the 21st century author than a first century Jew? Thank the Lord for the British and their common sense. Lord knows where we'd be without it! Rather Wright establish the orthodoxy but sets it in the larger framework of God's kingdom project to rescue his amazing creation gone bad. One of the most helpful points was on Jesus' divinity. Jesus through his life and work was embodying the return of YHWH to Zion. Not that YHWH was to return at a separate time and that he was simply a herald. Rather it was through his own work and ministry. Jesus himself was the return of YHWH to is book is highly recommended to anyone seeking to chop through all the famous level rubbish out there. This book will satisfy your mind as well as your heart and will give you plenty of meat to chew on. Highly recommended.

    The author does an perfect job in defining the who, the what and the why of Jesus. I am rapidly approaching my 82nd birthday. As a young boy I attended both Bible school and Sunday school at a Pilgrim Holiness Church. When I was 21 I studied Catholicism and converted. Falling away from that I am now renewing/restoring my Christian faith. This is an perfect book to support on the way.

    Simply Jesus: A New Vision of Who He Was, What He Did, and Why He Matters []  2020-2-4 3:25

    I had read some mixed reviews on this book before starting it myself. Some were saying it was complicated, some saying it is a rehash of items from a couple of his previous books, books which presented it better. However, I found it to be a amazing read. Having read a handful of Wright's items before, I have found some to be very deep theological (which I enjoy), and others not so much. This for fall into the category of the e more I read, the more I felt like I was becoming a part of the first-century era, and started to see the actions and words of Jesus in a fresh light. Of course having just finished reading two other related books on the first century life around Jesus' time may have had an influence on the enjoyment factor for me.I was really intrigued by the history lesson of those before and even after Jesus, who had stood up and created the claim to be the anointed one, and how they went about fulfilling that claim. Based on the expectations of the first testament scriptures, they had a plan, and of course ultimately failed. Jesus came on the scene, and we see parallels in his plan, but with a serious twist that shows his plan to be the true one. Understanding that really brought a better understanding to why they placed a sign saying "King of the Jews" on the cross of Jesus; whereas not knowing this past history it created a bit less e section on exactly what it meant to stand up and claim to be king, and what that meant at that time was also similarly enlightening. What exactly that meant and how it played out, which is the heart of the book, was a true thrill ride.Of course the whole journey comes to a true head with the closing section which wraps this pack up beautifully and should challenge believers to be a part of the kingdom and stop trying to escape the world. The church has failed its mission over the past few hundred years, and men like Wright are steering the "sinking ship" back on course to the kingdom mission Jesus left his followers to do.I finished the book inspired and desiring to be more engaging in the culture around me. A much required read by beautiful much anyone claiming to be a disciple of Jesus.

    N. T. Wright is a brilliant writer, and the book is fascinating. I couldn't stop reading the book even though there were things I didn't agree with, and I guess that's why I can only give it a 5 star rating. Nevertheless, I was captivated by his unceasing push to present that Jesus is Lord and king, and that nothing is more necessary than that piece of fact. I appreciate his clarity in arguing that the gospel is mainly and most of all about Jesus becoming king, and that all other aspects of his work are subordinate.What I don't like, is that he leaves you with more questions unanswered than any other book I have read, but maybe that's on purpose. I don't like it when he says everyone else has missed the point, and only sometimes explains it. I don't appreciate that he spends a few pages to respond his toughest question, namely, why and how does the cross bring about his kingship of the world. But, even though I have issues, I still give it a 5 star. It's a must read.

    Brilliant and insightful ysis by Wright, filled with his usual metaphor structures that facilitate a continual narrative and ytical thread through his books. Wright also rightly casts doubt on a lot of "accepted" Christian doctrines that "just ain't so" according to Biblical and early Church beliefs, while providing a robust and thoroughly intellectual advance of the divine mission and importance of Jesus' life. If you're a Christian, this is vital reading.If you are a non-believer looking to honestly assess the life and impact of Jesus Christ, give the works of Tom Wright a go - you will be honestly engaged and have vital reflection, while engaging with one of the most understandable and scholarly minds of Christianity today, yet someone with whom you could have a amazing conversation. He delves into the history and context of Christ's life, while pointing out the greater impact and whyChristians regard "this Jesus stuff" as necessary to everyone.

    A small difficult to obtain started into, but very much worth it. I can't place the theme into a easy statement. The person, ministry, intent, of the historical Jesus is examined from a faith perspective. Included are a lot of references to "Old Testament " themes, prophesies, and stories that illuminate the actual words & deeds of Jesus. I love connecting Jesus stories to the story of God working in the history of the Jewish nation, and there is a lot of that here. My bias of believing in literal truth of the scriptures, the divine, but human Jesus, who knew who he was and what he was doing, were reinforced, and given added density. The Kingdom he established is described in believable detail that gives each of us a charge to [email protected]#$%! farther in every aspect of our lives. The easy peaceful nonviolent hero of Jesus and his kingdom is presented beautifully.

    When He Was Wicked: Bridgerton (Bridgertons Book 6) []  2020-11-23 19:41

    I read this series a few years back, I started right before book 7 was first published and I'm surprised I haven't reviewed even one of the books yet. I absolutely love this series and recommend these to mates with related interests. Anyway I decided to reread 'When he was wicked" because I remembered this book being my fave from the bunch ('Romancing Mr Bridgerton" is a close second) and I wasn't disappointed (there has been times when I've re-read a book I love only to ask why I loved it in the first put lol). Even after all these years the book is still amazing. Granted I still remembered the necessary parts of the book but it was still really nice to revisit and be touched again by Michael and Frannie's story. I love that it didn't come simple and I just fell in love with Michael all over again and so satisfied that he finally got his HEA. This is an emotional read, at least for me it was. I really fell for these characters and felt their pain, confusion, happiness and everything in between. It absolutely created me wish to re-read the series again.

Unfortunately for him, she is marrying his cousin, the Earl of Kilmartin. When she is tragically widowed, Michael is torn because as he inherits the title, he feels guilty about assuming his beloved cousin's life. His love for Francesca makes him feel even more guilt so he leaves England.Upon returning four years later, Michael finds that Francesca has come to London to search a husband because she wants a child. The two, of course, end up having a complicated is is a attractive story. The story between Michael and Francesca is so filled with angst as the two deal with guilt because of their love for Francesca's first husband. The two are such honorable people that they struggle through their relationship. Quinn has done a amazing job of presenting these struggles and the joy of Francesca learning to love again.I'd rate this book a 4.5.

    He Was My Chief: The Memoirs of Adolf Hitler's Secretary []  2020-12-9 18:0

    The info in this memoir are fascinating - well, to me. For example, the author mentions a couple of times going running. I honestly didn't think average people went jogging back then - allow alone a couple of secretaries to the most disastrous human to ever walk the earth. But that's the kind of surprising private detail that's in e author confirms what you will read in other memoirs: just how [email protected]#$%!ler's after-dinner monologues were. When she finally contradicted him on some point during one of these she was not invited back to dinner for at least a year, it seems. By the way, if you've ever read a Hitler speech I think you have already noticed how long-winded and repetitive he most of these memoirs, there is not a lot of insight into political or military developments. However, she does have some things to say about the cirtances surrounding the arrest and murder of inly, she does a amazing job of giving the sense of the work of the secretaries, the social setting, and the change in Hitler's mood and the atmosphere as the battle went 's a surprising detail regarding Hitler giving a lot of attention to one of the women in the group: "He was forever paying her compliments which led to the Hitler-impersonators amongst the officers staging their usual impressions once Hitler had retired." That's something to picture: Hitler going to bed, and the officers taking turns doing their Hitler thing that seems special about this book is the author's interest in what people had written about Hitler after the war. That is, she has a number of asides where she wants to correct people - usually people who were not there - about events. One gets the impression she spent a lot of time reading what historians and others were writing about Hitler and the bunker and the whole is a beautiful short book and an simple read, so for a candid look at life inside among Hitler's staff, it is strongly recommended. Be aware that, as with most of these memoirs by staff people - secretaries, adjutants, etc. - there is small about politics, battle (other than its effects), or the Holocaust.

    Amazing book which is a classic and did not adorn my bookshelves previously, so required to order. Wasn't disappointed. The volume has a lot of interesting glimpses of history seen through the secretary to Hitler and reveals some special aspects of life with this dictator. Told in a traditional historical review of happenings from having been hired to work for Hitler to the moments when she vacated the Chancellery and was saved by her deportation south to Berchtesgaden during the latest days of the war. Interesting. Learned much from her appraisal of the wartime situation in Berlin. Explained some proclivities of Hitler and offered other mysteries she could not answer. Recommend for a classic Globe Battle II collection or 20th Century European history personalities profile reference book. Gave some amazing appraisals of other Nazi leaders.

    He Was My Chief: The Memoirs of Adolf Hitler's Secretary []  2020-12-9 18:0

    These are memoirs by one of Hitler's secretary from the year he ascended to power through the very end in 1945. She was there when Hitler, a few feet away, created a lot of necessary decisions during the existence of the Third Reich. She was there when Hitler would stop by for tea with his secretaries in the afternoon. She was familiar with his inner circle and was capable of gaging them from intuition or body language. Of course Christa Shroeder was not a person with authority. But she gives us her recollection about a Hitler we very rarely obtain to see in other works: a Hitler who lets his guard go a little, who shows a sense of humor, who basically uses his close staff as a substitute for a family. This is a portrait of Hitler as intimate as you ever going to see him, and it is done by someone who is dedicated but incorruptible.

    This is one of the essential basic sources for people interested in the private interactions of the Nazi elite. Schroeder comes across as flinty but trying to be fair in her assessments of people. She limits her story to what she saw and personally experienced. She doesn't question the battle or Nazi policies. It sure would've been fascinating to hear what she thought of Hitler after she found out what really went on in the war. You obtain the impression she had powerful opinions, but kept them out of the book and out of interviews. At least, that's what it seemed like to me as I read her memoir.

    Ok, so I'd originally listed this as 4 stars. I believe, in my younger years, where I had much less experience in life and with men, I couldn't fully appreciate the plot of this book. But now I'm a bit older, I really really loved it!I loved that Michael was already in love with Francesca before the book began. Every Bridgerton book before this one, the character had already decided that he wasn't going to fall in love. But this book was so various having Michael be in love with his cousin's was kind of hard reading about John's death and Francesca and Michael's grief. They both dealt with it in various ways, and unfortunately caused a 4 year separation. I loved how when he returned, they were able to pick right up, even with a little amount of awkwardness.I felt like their relationship changing from friendship to mutual desire and becoming lovers had a completely appropriate timeline. And once they started sleeping together, consent was a huge deal to Michael. He would never do anything she didn't agree too. There are three detailed scenes and a couple of fade out scenes.I really loved how they both came to recognize that John would wish his two favorite people to search happiness in each other. It took Francesca a small bit longer, but that created complete sense because of how much she had loved more thing I loved about the story was how Francesca could tell that she loved each man differently, but that didn't mean that she loved either of them any less or any more than the other. It was just different. And that's how love is in true life. Always changing and expanding, but never diminishing.

    My gawd the beginning of this was stilted and boring! I can't believe Julia Quinn even wrote this. The dialogue was repetitious and boring, with lots of what I like to call "filler and fluff". It wasn't until right around the 50% tag that it got better.I really did not care for Francesca at all. It didn't support that she wanted to be away from her family (that we all love to read about!) and she did not care for Michael like he cared (loved) her for most of the book! On the other hand, I adored Michael and my heart damage for him. Michael deserved so much better. I think Julia Quinn went about this all the wrong way~with Francesca being married to someone she was in love with for YEARS of this novel. I would have loved to have seen Michael with someone else. Someone truly deserving of him.

Yet enjoyable to see our character obtain his woman.

    When He Was Wicked: Bridgerton (Bridgertons Book 6) []  2020-11-23 19:41

    The Bridgerton series has some enjoyable novels; some entertaining novels; and some that are both enjoyable and entertaining. Sadly, this one is not one of any of them. I found it to be so plodding and lacking that I had to place it down for a week and read something by another author before I could return to it to complete it for a college class review of potential novels for a Women's Literature ancesca is so emotionally dependent, shallow, and immature that she is hardly one to stimulate any sensitivity in a Reader. If Michael Stirling is so emotionally close and valuable to her, then she never really shows that, except to focus on his lips a time or two. Neither hero speaks from the heart and is candid until Colin tells Michael that he may need to begin his heart and consider seducing her. They do not act like functional, and emotionally engaged adults who shared a love for John Stirling, Francesca's late husband. Were Francesca a modern day character, one would suggest some grief therapy for a year or more for her. Lucky for Michael that he has the fortune to go off to India for four years to soothe his wounds, grieve his cousin, drown his sorrows over his separation and unrequited love for Francesca, and obtain malaria. We are treated to a brief discussion on the medical merits of quinine, which was a welcomed relief from Francesca's vacillation and avoidance behaviors. Even after being seduced, having a three plus week series of trysts with Michael, having him bare his soul to her, marrying him, and doing all this with the knowledge of a houseful of servants, she is not willing to verbalize that she loves this unbelievably patient sap until she can have her dead John's blessing in a poorly written mystical episode at John's gravesite. This tedious novel would have - and should have - been a passionate short story of two loves at a tender young age. I was so RELIEVED for it to end; and Francesca was still not on the method to having a baby - something she obsessed over for 3/4 of thenovel.While most of this series of novels rate 3 stars for entertainment; and three actually merit 4 stars for entertainment AND enjoyment, in my opinion, this one barely can claim to be entertaining OR engaging; therefore, 2 stars it is. Read TO SIR PHILLIP WITH LOVE instead!!!!

    I liked this book, but I didn't love it. Michael and Francesca obtain together about 80% into the story, and I really disliked how she handled it. Michael felt used, and she had no thought in her head. When Michael would ask her questions, her response to everything was "I don't know, I don't know." Well, think woman! Use the brain God gave you for a small introspection. I'm not a fan of thoughtless people, not in true life or in e beginning of the book spends quite a bit of time grieving John's death, as it should be. But doesn't create for very satisfied reading. The middle of the book is the best, with lots of friendship and relationship development between Michael and Francesca. In fact, in the middle of the book I was assuming I'd be rating it five stars, but by the end I felt less enchanted with the story. Even the ending is kind of a downer with a congratulatory but sad letter from John's mother. I doubt I'd read this again.I listened to the audiobook and Simon Prebble is a amazing narrator. His pacing is excellent, he has amazing accents for various classes and in Scotland, and he differentiates characters' voices. Some of his inflections and word emphasis was a bit off to me, but overall a fine performance.

    He Was My Chief: The Memoirs of Adolf Hitler's Secretary []  2020-12-9 18:0

    This book was written by the longtime private secretary to Adolph Hitler Christa Schroeder just after the battle when things were still new in her mind. As an extra addendum to her work, I must add that she sees things clear as a bell and seems to be unbiased in her observations of not only Hitler but to all who were in the inner circle of Hitler's court. In assessing the inner circle and modus operandi of this group of people I'm beginning to form an opinion based upon other reading that Hitler was basically a man who secluded himself with people who were yes men. As the battle progressed on and it became evident that Germany was losing the battle Hitler became less available to the general public. He was withdrawing from reality. Frau Schroeder goes into amazing detail of how Hitler dealt with his closed court. She tells of Hitler beliefs and attitudes and dreams and aspirations. Into this mix she shows a private Hitler who segregates his political life and polemic desires from his tea-time inner circle which was filled with the arts, architecture and musical likes. What I search as rather odd but a constant of people who were in the inner circle of Hitler is that not much was discussed on what was really transpiring in the outside true globe which was enveloped in total Globe War. Nothing of the concentration camps and the crimes that were taking put under the auspices of the Nazism is discussed by Frau Schroeder. Her globe was that of a limited scope and tells only of the private habits and the life and times of this close knit group who in reality were naïve of what the swastika banner represented to those who were not of German descent. This book is a parochial look of a man who at that time was terrorizing the world. Among the quotes and observations of Frau Schroeder is this quote by Hitler: "Moreover I do not wish kids of my own. I search that the descendants of a genius mostly have it very difficult in the world. One expects them to have the same ability as their popular forebear and do not forgive them for being average. Apart from that they mostly turn out cretins." No Herr Hitler, thank God you did not procreate. Can you imagine living life after WWII being the son of Adolph Hitler? Frau Schroeder's work is of a limited scope of Hitler. However it is an necessary and important study which we see Hitler in a much various light and attests to one and all part of the persona and being of a historical person of the 20th century.

    This an perfect translation of the memoirs of Adolph Hitler's long time secretary, Christa Schröder. It is part of a three book series giving intimate views of Hitler, the person. It is helpful to be familiar with the general history of the Third Reich before reading any of them. The second book in the series is "With Hitler to the End" by Hitler's valet Heintz Linge. I look forward the publication of the third book in 2010, "I [email protected]#$%!ler's Chauffeur" by Erich Kemka. I believe these three books, taken together, will be the best available info of the "human being", Adolph Hitler. The books have contemporary black and white images and a color picture on the dust jacket. They are uniformly and nicely bound. They will create a fine addition to anyone's library. A must for Hitler scholars.

    This, along with Linge's and Dietrich's , books all being published in English the same year? Was there a law saying this is what will be? Conspiracy theory?Unfortunately, we'll never obtain a book from Johanna Wolf, the only third party who witnessed "everything" - from Hitler's mentoring by Dietrich Eckart to the latest days of his and the NAZI regime rista's is the closest autobiography we'll ever obtain of a Hitler non-chancellor to dicator to his suicide. The best part of the book, [email protected]#$%!ler is not the main hero of the book. It is Christa Schroeder's life and what she witnessed, plainly told, without judgement nor e fact she writes this book unapologetically, actually gives credance to the words she wrote for the book. She never ever once says "I'm sorry about the holocaust". This makes me beleive her more than Dietrich, Junge, or Speer.Highly recommend this book for anyone, even those who don't care about WWII. A fascinating 10+ years of a life.

    Christa Schroeder was one of Hitler's four private secretaries and was loyal to him until the very end. She gives the reader a lot of and varied insights to Hitler's thinking, work habits, personality traits and kindnesses to his private staff of secretaries, valets, drivers and the like. For anyone who wishes to know more about Germany during the thirties and through WW 11 and who has a begin mind to viewing Adolf Hitler as much more than simply as a raving monster, then this is the book for you. The reader will learn much from Christa Schroeder's insights as one of his private secretaries, including how things went for much of his staff at the conclusion and destruction of the war. I highly recommend this book to those who are interested in this historical time period.

    When He Was Wicked: Bridgerton (Bridgertons Book 6) []  2020-11-23 19:41

    The quality of this work; Francesca's story; is both a bit unconventional in that it involves a young widow seeking a second marriage because she wants to be a mother AND because it will make various reactions and emotions in the reader based on the age and life experience of the particular reader. It rather reminded me of the cemetery stage in Lethal Weapon IV where Mel Gibson is talking to his late wife about Lorna and Leo tells the story of his pet frog. For the younger reader who married relatively young and had a amazing marriage, there is more of a possibility that they will understand and empathize with the heroine's reluctance to risk marriage; any marriage but particularly a marriage with someone connected to her late husband. For the older reader who has experienced a amazing marriage that either ended suddenly or ended badly and then was fortunate enough to search a mature, experienced man who truly cared for them -the reader may obtain a bit "miffed" and impatient at her reluctance and wishy-washy mindset.[ For myself I wanted to do a Moonstruck slap and tell her to "snap out of it!" and don't be stupid. Grab Michael with both hands and don't allow go; I did and never looked back! ] But hold persevering because it gets REALLY amazing at the end - with one exception; no epilogue. I don't wish to spoil the ending but you'll know how I [email protected]#$%! had concluded.

    Wow! I cannot believe anyone would give this book negative reviews. It was such a GREAT read, I did not wish to place it down. It was real, real and I could see facing the wars they did in this book. Yes, it was various than the others so far in this series and the only one I have taken the time to write a review on, because I really think it has been the BEST so far from this series!!! I'm reading the series in order. I think Julia Quinn out did herself in "When He was Wicked". I have loved all the books so far, but this one is very various in a very touching, loving, fabulous way. Do not let any of the negative reviews hold you from this love affair or you'll miss a amazing story!! Yes, you may shed a few tears, but it is SOOOOO worth it!!!!

    After reading the delightful "The Other Miss Bridgerton" I read this book by Julia Quinn. Actually, I listened to it first and found the characters really compelling - for about 1/2 of the book. (The reader, a man, was excellent! Forgive me for not naming him, I am not deft at doing two things at once on the computer.) However, Francesca's "I don't know"s in response to method too a lot of questions grew very very tiresome and I wanted Michael to finally fall out of love with her. But he was kind of like her too in that he couldn't allow go of his guilt about Colin. The "courting" got kind of icky. It all went on just TOO LONG.

    He Was My Chief: The Memoirs of Adolf Hitler's Secretary []  2020-12-9 18:0

    "HE WAS MY CHIEF: The Memoirs of Adolf Hitler's Secretary" is a memoir of sorts by Christa Schroeder, one of Hitler's four private secretaries. When I say "of sorts", the book basically consists her letters, papers, and notes of the time, arranged by the book's editor, Anton Joachimsthaler, who also provided some commentary. She expressly entrusted these writings to him with but did not want them to be published until after her hroeder was an extremely amazing shorthand writer and typist and was hired by the Nazis, working in several offices before eventually becoming one of the secretaries used by Hitler. Because of her ability to do huge amounts of work with minimal supervision, she became one of his private secretaries, and worked with the dictator from 1933 until his suicide in 1945. Schroeder was described in the book by Hitler's surgeon Dr Karl Brandt as "clever, critical, and intelligent", and who "always expressed her opinion openly and with conviction and this led on occasion to serious altercations." This persona comes across quite clearly in her writings in the e covers her time with Hitler from 1933 to near the end in April 1945. Most of her observations are more the chatty gossip type of coverage, and she lays out the dirt (as much as she knows) about Hitler's private habits, the women in his life, and how he changed as time went on, particularly during the war. Most of her observations cover her time with Hitler before Globe Battle II started, partly because he was perhaps less busy and allowed himself more time to relax. During the war, Hitler created fewer speechs and the like, and required his secretaries less for official work. However, he preferred them to sit at his lunches and dinners, so they became somewhat involuntary dinner guests every day and night. [email protected]#$%!ler habitually ate lunch and dinner quite late, eventually the secretaries split the meals so that they were able to have some ar the end of the war, Hitler sent Schroeder and his senior-most secretary, Johanna Wolf, to his residence at the Berhof, because they were senior to his other two secretaries and presumably to serve on his staff if he decided to flee Berlin. So while Schroeder wasn't show at the end in Berlin, she was show to present what happened at the Berhof, which is something I hadn't read about roughout the book, Schroeder often felt sorry for herself and her situation, but couldn't quite force herself to seriously test and quit. After the war, she was arrested and determined to be a class 1 major battle criminal (which she bitterly protested, as she was only a typist), serving a total of three years before she was reclassified as a class 4 criminal, that of a collaborator, and released from prison.I've now read several books from people who served with or near Hitler, from both the military and non-military sides of Hitler's life. This book is about middle-of-the-pack to me. If you've read other accounts from people who served Hitler, you won't learn much fresh here, although Schroeder does correct a few errors from other people's books, including one which was written from her notes shortly after the battle without her permission. She also discusses what Hitler felt about the sketches and paintings he did before Globe Battle I, which was interesting. The Hitler she shows is generally likeable, firm but fair to his staff, with both private strengths and weaknesses. She did not witness the truly evil, maniacal orders Hitler issued, as from all accounts, he kept a clear separation between his private staff and his professional military duties.Overall I enjoyed the book, as it helps paint a picture of Hitler, although it doesn't really support explain how he could order the atrocities he did. What she writes is generally consistent with the other books published by his private staff. As I mentioned earlier, there isn't much fresh here, and Schroeder isn't a profound thinker about her time with Hitler, but the book is entertaining and worth adding to your shelf if you're looking to learn more about Hitler. Four stars.

    Everything about Germany and all Germans prior to and during and long after Globe Battle II has been distorted by propaganda which for the most part is completely false and so small of the other side of that coin is known that books like this book are gems. I believe that much has been written by Germans about the conditions. Not much has been translated. This book by Christa Schröder [email protected]#$%!ler and much else into proper perspective, in so far as Hitler as a person is concerned. It does not deal with any of the political or military matters but the insight which it gives into the conditions surrounding Hitler and the people around him is both interesting and invaluable.

    The Princess Who Forgot She Was Beautiful (The Harry Ferguson Chronicles Book 1) []  2020-1-22 19:12

    This book was so much fun! The closest book I could compare this to is The Princess Bride because of its humorous yet serious fairytale quality, but it's completely various all the same. The main character, Hank Ferguson, a master storyteller, enraptures a group of kids (and their parents) at a small-town library in East Texas with a story about a young peasant man, a princess, and a dragon that just so happens to be true---and still unfinished. The story within a story becomes one narrative that I didn't wish to stop e colourful cast of characters sprang to life in my mind. During the library scenes, I felt like I was actually watching and hearing kids at a story time. And of course Harry Ferguson, as an unlikely hero, is extremely likable, and so is Sarah (lots of facets to her!). I was fascinated by how the story unfolds and uncovers more and more layers of danger, intrigue, and adventure. It becomes a love story as well. And even though it's humorous and fun, there is depth and sorrow in it that tugs at the heart. And of course some serious villains and dark cirtances. Be aware there is a small bit of disturbing violence and a few mild curse 's quite hard to describe this book because there are so a lot of various elements to it, but that's what makes it so exciting and enriching to read.

    The Princess who forgot she was attractive by William Ellis is like new bread in a stale bakery. And that is just the beginning of an awesome series called the Chronicles of Harry Ferguson. This is one of those I cant place it down books and dang it, it ends in a cliff hanger book that captures the flavor of East Texas and of ancient themes of honor and unrequited love. Princess Sarah is an awesome woman and Harry is carved from callus and committed to finding a method to be with his ancient love. The characters vary from snaggle toothed children that entangle themselves in hilarious happenings to a shape shifting dragon that would love to snack on those kids. It’s the beginning of a Journey , a wild journey of twists and bends and coming back round agains. You really need to obtain this book!

    This whimsical tale engages both young and old adults. I gave a five-star rating because the novel contains a wide range of fully developed characters who not only capture the reader’s attention and emotions, but these feisty eccentrics manage to convey a lot of of the life lessons adults love to share with the next generation of leaders.If you’re looking for an entertaining fantasy that contains the charming antics of a small rug rat, or as Hank would say, “the small snaggletooth,” then grab a copy of The Princess Who Forgot She Was Attractive and have fun a special treat of the imagination.

    A fantasy adventure with colourful characters and apt for teens and adults. The story line is good, and the author skillfully brings an emotional element along with mystery, danger, spiritual, and time travel into the picture. It’s a journey of life wherein our main characters have aged in hope to see the only women he wished and when he finally meets her the twists and change happens and the story moves fast. The book is part of a series so would be interesting to read more.

    I had no idea when I started this book what to expect. I thought it was a book for children, but was beautiful quickly surprised to realize that there was far more depth than I expected.I thoroughly enjoyed the story, I enjoyed the characters and even though the author hints his hand in a few slight ways, I did not see the plot twists coming at all. I have recommended this book especially to my 15 year old son as there is some amazing elements that I think he would really enjoy. This is a book that is one that can be shared with teens for sure, it is not for younger kids as there is some very minor language and content.Overall I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading the next book in the series!!

    If you have ever wished for more and always settled for less, if you’ve given up believing that true love can ever be. If you have devoured shallow notions about love and they have left a taste in your mouth that reminds you of the bottom of an ash tray. Then this book might be for you. It starts out with on with an old theme that is remembered for a reason so central to our deepest natures and so painful when we lack it that we hide from the very idea. Till we hope again. Those feelings are exactly what the characters in this book experience. The character has waited a thousand years wishing for the few moments he shared centuries before with the only woman who fit the hollow put in his soul. When he finds her again she is still as far away as ever, not only has she forgotten who she is, she is now stuck in the body of a six year old, and the character has aged till he is an old man. But that is where the story begins, and does it ever obtain wild from there! Time travel is a unbelievable thing it changes you. Mentally emotionally, spiritually and physically. But I am not spoiling this for you…buy the book but hold in mind this does end in a cliff hanger!

I LOVED the 90s pop references and Tyler and I would have gotten along famously. This one is worth checking out!!

    This is a sweet, fast read that at once breaks your heart and gives you t in 1998, it's full of cliches that brought me back to my middle and high school memories and created me glad that people like Tyler and Sutton don't have to face quite as much eir love story is simple to read in an is is my honest review after receiving an ARC.

    He Called Me Beautiful (Brighten The Stars Book 1) []  2020-11-14 18:55

    This book is both sweet and heartbreaking. Sutton and Tyler are so amazing together. Do sweet and innocent in there love but they also broke my heart. The things they faced and the rear they had was real. I wanted to keep them and protect them from ever getting damage and my heart and for every LGBT+ person who had to love through that. Who still love through that. So while these two tell a sweet story of first love, Annabeth Chatwin also gives you something to think about regarding the community. Very well done.

    He Called Me Beautiful (Brighten The Stars Book 1) []  2020-11-14 18:55

    I picked this up because the blurb and titled called to me, the idea of a glimpse into the past with two young boys, both from various backgrounds falling in love. Sutton is out, Tyler isn’t, and the story just flowed on the page. I was rooting for them both, hoping that they’d search each other and end up living happily. The story was told beautifully, with just enough of that romantic suspense and tension, and I adored the characters and the story. A fast read, and one that I would recommend.

    Easily can read this story in one day. Quick, clean LGBT read.I would have been terrified if I was Tyler and Sutton. Sutton was a super brave hero to me and then Tyler became braver as time went on. It took a lot of courage to stand up to his mates and say something in front of everyone. I’m so glad Tyler had Lacey as a best friend. She seemed like a amazing mate and person to be is story kinda hits a small close to home with my wife and I. Thankfully I haven’t had as a lot of issues as she had growing up. This story was cute but heartbreaking also. I wasn't sure how this story was going to end but it ended on a amazing note. I need more though! Did they survive the dance? Are they still together? Did anything happen to them as time went on?

    This was short and beautifully sweet. It was exactly what I was looking for right now. I have been working a lot of hours and this book was able to transport me back in time. I would have been about the same age as the boys when this takes put in 1998. I enjoyed being reminded of the pop culture things I had forgotten.

    Once I started reading, I couldn't place it down until I was done. I immediately liked the main characters, and was drawn into the 1990's high school scene. I am looking forward to sharing this one with my teenage daughter so she can obtain a glimpse into the pop culture of my teenage years. The book also created me contemplate how far we have come with LGBTQ+ issues, and how far we still need to go.

    I easily read this book in a day!! This was a sweet clean romance book. The relationship and chemistry between Tyler and Sutton was awesome to read! They went through a lot during this story, and I’m so glad they had a mate like Lacey to help them. This book gave me Cinderella vibes. You follow Sutton, the rich, famous boy who is out of the closet, and Tyler, the not good skater boy who no one likes. The book follows there relationship through a time when being was not accepted. I received this as a free ARC copy, but all opinions are my own.

    The work is an engaging collection of amusing and in some cases mildly shocking and eminently readable private stories of smaller and a few larger life experiences from childhood through youth and into a more mature reflective adulthood. Enjoy.

    Thank you Melissa Hood for sharing your life dealing with ADHD! Her story is inspiring! This lady could have given up so so a lot of times and yet she was powerful in her determination to continue on and not allow anyone or anything obtain her down. This also gives an inside out look at having ADHD and what challenges comes with it. Very informative.

    My husband really enjoyed this book. It was a amazing read and spoke about ADHD from a faith-based perspective but also how she got over/through the disorder with organization and other tips. I would encourage anyone to obtain this book and read it, regardless of whether you identify as a christian or not.

    Place aside what you think you know about ADHD and read this book, which will enable you to really understand the complicated path those who live with the diagnosis travel. Melissa Hood's private acc is eye-opening, thoughtful, inspirational, and will undoubtedly be extremely beneficial to all who read it, whether they or someone they love is affected by ADHD.
