I'm sad to see this series go. It was a unbelievable read and wonderfully written, like all of MJ Davidson's books are. Betsy triumphs over all in her beautifully bumbling way, all the whole obsessing over her gorgeous and beloved shoes. It had me laughing out loud, sniffling a small in some parts, in awe of Betsy, her abilities and her antics, and just generally marveling at the method in which MJ Davidson brought all the small threads together in this latest story. Thank you MJ Davidson!
I love the quirkiness of MaryJanice Davidson's writing and have really enjoyed this series. I'm sorry to see it go. I personally would recommend that you begin with the beginning book of the series - Undead and Unwed for best enjoyment. Things are always crazy with Betsy around! It's a hysterical paranormal adventure.
All hail, Queen Betsy gets it together when it counts.I must confess, I jumped from book three to here only reading snippets from intervening books. Oddly, was not at all confused during this finale, rather I was happy to see that Betsy’s amazing heart trumps any apparent silly qualities she may be clear I jumped to the end to see if I wanted to invest in the middle of the series and I think I do. There’s a certain joy in Betsy that’s a amazing antidote to the corona quarantine anxiety of the period I’m reading in.And if you haven’t checked out Davidson’s recent about time travel and Henry the eighth I recommend it.
I so don't wish this series to end. I love all the characters. Especially Betsy. I liked the storyline in this book but there are so a lot of options to continue with the "triad", I don't wish it to end. Some of the secondary characters are so interesting, they could have a series of their own. I laughed out loud a lot. There wasn't enough Sinclair in this book, but that's my only complaint. Their banter was always a highlight. I can't be too specific about the book without doing spoilers. I loved it.
I liked the ending, I am glad to know Betsy is not completely dumb although I don't always care for her tangents and how wrapped up she gets in small things. I could have wished that things with Laura had gone differently, but it was interesting to search out that the whole plot of the story was not ACTUALLY about....well you should read it to search that out.
I am so satisfied to say that the author not only got back on track with her writing but she tied the series up well. The latest few books were nothing more that inner dialogue with small plot and I almost did not obtain the final book in the series. But I am so glad I did. A nice ending.
I enjoyed this book. It is sad that this is the latest one, but it is a amazing method to end the series. Everything is wrapped up in a satisfying conclusion. Every hero has their moment. There are tips of what the future holds for them. I recommend this book. It is amazing fun.
Amazing app, exactly what I was looking for, Thank You! Has all the important features but retains an elegant simplicity. I almost exclusively access the application from the tidy homescreen widgent. Purchase only important for themes.
The notification does not present complete text of the task. On touching it, the application also shows a single line. We have to touch rhe screen 2nd time to see the full text. Also, there's no setting option to have the completed tasks go down the list.
Lightweight and few permissions, easy and intuitive, no options without paying. The widget, especially the transparent version, is attractive, though the line spacing between happenings is large, so it doesn't fit a lot of tasks on the screen. If data was held in a folder on internal SD it would be more useful, as it would be possible to sync data between devices using file/folder sync (eg Syncthing).
Amazing zombie apocalypse fiction with an entertaining plot, amazing hero development, lots of action and snark. You’ll be looking forward to the next book in the series, just like I am, as our motley squad of survivors run for their lives.
What a fun begin to an exciting fresh series. Lots of action, realistic characters, and zombies. What else could I ask for? This book had me on the edge of my seat, and I was so anxious about how things would go. I read it so quick because I couldn’t wait to search out what was coming next.Raven is a hero I can relate to. Her life seems to have prepared her for this moment, and she’s smart. I like that she thinks ahead and that, to her, family is more than just blood. She’s made a small family among those she cares about and I think the globe would be a better put if more people thought like actual favorite hero though, is Helga. There is something about that fruitcake that I just can’t support but love.I’ll be honest, this book kind of freaked me out. As I was reading it, I noticed the similarities between what was going on in the book and what is currently going on in our world, but I know for a fact this book was written before any of the current insanity even started. I’m slightly suspicious that this author maybe is psychic. If she’s not, she just has some really amazing e action in this book seems realistic to me. There was nothing that stood out as impossible. I’m not fighting or war expert, but for the average person, I think it’s simple to follow. I think there is just the right amount of action in comparison to the story itself. I don’t care for books that are like one huge war stage so this was a nice is really is a amazing book. I enjoyed the thought processes behind the characters and the overall feel of the book. It read quickly and kept my attention the entire time. I normally like really long books, but I think this is a amazing average length. It’s just the right size to hold me entertained for a while without becoming boring with filler information that’s just there to fill pages. If you like zombie stories, this is worth the read.
A fun quick paced book about a zombie apocalypse. So a lot of similarities with how the virus started and what's event now in 2020. Which gave the book a more creepy vibe, had me looking out my windows to create sure it wasn't true . Lol!! Amazing read and flows perfectly. Ready to begin the next book.
I really enjoyed this book. It has powerful characters that are all fighting to stay alive and become a amazing team. There is plenty of action in the book, mixed with humor and a amazing story line. I am very much looking forward to the next book in the series.
This was exactly what I needed. The story kept me entertained and the characters were worth rooting for. I tend to skim read in parts of some books, but I didn't do that because I was really invested. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment.
Never thought that I would like a book with Zombies in it but I am looking forward to the next one in this series. I work with a woman that turned me on to Bonnie Gill. She is a mate of hers " Chris". I have enjoyed all of her books. Can't place them down. This book does seem like it could be event right now with Covid going around minus the Zombies. A amazing read.
One of the things I liked best about the book is that she wrote the mom's adventure as a completely various book. Thank you so much for not doing the everyother chapter is a various pov. I was able to immerse myself in the characters and their world. 1 star off just because I wish to read the whole series first. If the series stays as amazing as this book I will edit my rating. Now time to read the mom's adventure.
Generally works very well. My main complaint is that the application doesn't present wether an assignment is quick funds enabled. For me, this can be very necessary in choosing which assignments to apply for. Please add this information in the app.
My profession encircles the globe of coding. And everything Andrea Gonzales and Sophie Houser wrote and spoke I similar to. Us girls really need to stick together. Once you read Girl code and you're a STEM kinda girl, you'll be intoxicated by their passion to make and the fun from the aftermath of a huge advice: Set your mindset that the hardships are inevitable but as you sharpen your skills in time it gets easier. Failure is a learning process, success is a point for fresh challenges. Never stop!
This book is NOT only for people interested in coding/tech!!Andy and Sophie do a unbelievable job sharing the vulnerability they felt before starting fresh journeys and during the craziness of Tampon Run. I enjoyed how the book addressed all the self-messages we give ourselves that restrict us from trying fresh or hard tasks. Their gaming journey is, of course, restricted to the tech world, but the journey could easily have been written about any other field a kid passionately wants to enter: putting yourself out there is hard, and if you wish to succeed, you'll have to feel uncomfortable and scared TE: If you are a homeschooling parent, particularly an unschooling parent, this book is a must read! It shows: How finding a passion and following it is very rewarding and inspiriting. How high school is a limited view of the world/there is so much more than grades. How trying is always better than not trying.
Cassie finally comes clean with her parents. What happens next is pure chaos. It seems the jig is up and Draven has finally found her. Cassie and her family have to create a fast obtain away. All the stops are out now. Everyone knows the truth. It seems time is running out, and the sun is looking to set on Cassie. Will she have to sacrifice herself to save her family and friends? I enjoyed this book so much. Absolutely fantastic.
My 10-year old African American daughter absolutely LOVES this book! She found it inspirational, funny and so simple to relate to. She did not place it down until she had read it cover to cover. She even requested that I one for one of he mates as a birthday gift, which I promptly did. As an aside, my daughter wears glasses and was so amused by the fact that Marley has multiple pairs in several colors. She thinks Marley is the coolest! Well done Marley and parents!!
This kindlebook of Marley Dias Gets It Done and So Can You by Marley Dias includes both informative and magnificent info on the authors family life, her school and writing life, and much more. Dias writes why she started certain projects. She also shares perspectives on the difference between activism and charity. A reader can also obtain a powerful feeling that the connection to her parents is both powerful and encouraging by the method she explains the dynamics between her and both parents.
I teach a Masters level course on grantmaking and foundations, and Giving Done Right by Phil Buchanan is an perfect addition to my syllabus. There are a number of necessary books about grantmaking, by experienced grantmakers and scholars, but what makes Giving Done Right unique, and particularly useful, is that it is written by someone who has experience leading an organization that supports both nonprofits that are seeking funds and grantmakers that are allocating funds. In his book, Buchanan confronts common and emerging concerns facing grantees and donors, offering guidance to improve outcomes for the ultimate stakeholder: the individuals and communities both parties in this relationship aim to serve. The cases and stories in each chapter support to illuminate the challenges that are involved in making grants and reveal why thoughtful guidance is necessary. This book is accessible to newcomers to the field of philanthropy and I expect that it will support experienced philanthropists to reflect and perhaps re-examine some of their practices.Other things that I liked about the book:• I appreciated the short, bullet-point summaries at the end of each chapter, which offered just the right amount of info about key points in the chapter.• Buchanan makes the case that nonprofits and philanthropy are not comparable to the business sector and; therefore, business practices cannot (and should not) be applied. A grantmaking tactic will be various from a business strategy.• He importantly addresses the overhead myth and makes the case for giving to organizations rather than programs. This is very important!• In his discussion on choosing goals (ch3), he challenges donors to weigh selecting a goal that is their passion over selecting a cause that may be more worthy. He carefully introduces the concept of Effective Altruism, alongside critiques of this approach, in an effort to question donors that simply choose what they wish to do.
What I found refreshing after a career based in philanthropy and nonprofit leadership is Buchanan’s emphasis on and imagination for nonprofits. Too often philanthropy focuses on problems (vital as they may be) without addressing the challenges and infrastructure within which nonprofits operate. This book opens with an insightful window into the dynamics of running nonprofits - which, like it or not - still deliver the predominant portion of our nation’s cultural and social services. Hats off to Buchanan for reminding us of that fact and respectively grounding his treatment of philanthropy in that essential context. It makes the book far more credible and inviting. Thank dya K.

Buchanan does a amazing job lifting up the perfect work of nonprofits and what philanthropy needs to understand about the amazing work they support. Moreover, he makes the case for the value of philanthropy. Imperfect as it is, he highlights what we know about what a moment like this, we need some empirically driven arguments to support us focus on what matters, and what we can do about it.
Brilliant concepts and discussion of details, but somewhat slow in painting the huge picture. He never really comes out and says it, so I will. The end effect is a control rig for 40 blend shapes, each painstakingly hand drawn and tuned. The state of the art doesn't let shortcuts; I don't think it ever can or will. If you can accept that all 40 shapes are required to model the range of human facial expression, this book is for you. Osipa makes a compelling argument that each is necessary; tutorials you through the modeling to create it possible; and wraps up with an elegant rig to control and manage them all. The effect is a talking head, simply awesome in its range and control of nuance. Still, 40 heads per hero is a large investment. Is it worth "Doing Right?" Or can you continue to fake it? Buy the book; play with the rig; and search out for yourself.
I used to use Morph targets and blend shapes previously, although the method it's done in this book is amazing. When you obtain your hero finally rigged up using this way you will praise Jason for enlightening the world. It makes facial animation a breeze and above all, FUN. Plus the controls just "feel" so e Modelling theories are also quite good. Just doing it properly once to any hero should be enough to give 3D enthusisats the foundation for better work in the future. I have bought alot of books about 3D from Amazon in the latest 3 years and currently study a degree in Animation and allow me tell you - this book is the best there is.
The things that I love the most of this book is that was straight to the point. I read the entire book in just two hours. I love that it helped me bring into conscious of the a lot of ways a waste my time and why I'm always feeling that I don't have time enough. If you feel like you never have enough time I think this book is a amazing put to start. Is very short (I search myself often not finishing books because they are too long), straight to the point and gives you the tools to recognize how you manage your time and how to create the best of it.
This was a tremendous support in putting me in the right perspective to gain productivity in my life. There was amazing insight, as well as very practical hints and helpful knowledge to change my ways.I highly recommend!
I bought this for a niece after I read it (I'm 43y/o). I'm so impressed with these two young ladies. Wow, their journey and their authorship is inspirational. I wish to volunteer with Girls Who Code because of this story. Check it out from your library, it, or borrow it....just read it! You don't have to be a computer geek or have a penchant for computers. It's about girls working together, learning a fresh skill and increasing their self-esteem. I'm so glad I read this book!
Confession - i borrowed this book from the library where I work. But it is SO worth a amazing review. These young women did something beautiful awesome at a young age. And they are wonderful role models. Coding changed their lives - the changes had their ups and downs, but they learned a lot and they applied what they learned to do something to change hurtful social attitudes. I have done a small (read VERY little) coding and admire them for their tenacity in completing their projects under beautiful wicked time constraints. And more necessary is their desire to code with a social conscience. Girls in our society tend to be encouraged to think they are not math/science/logical (or that these careers are not sexy????) which is so wrong. Hopefully this book - if it reaches a teen audience - will inspire more young women to discover rewarding careers in technology.
