Random ARC Mini Review - The Ghosts of Captain Grant's Inn





This is the story of the saints and spirits that helped Carol Matsumoto buy and renovate a stately home that had fallen into disrepair, turning it into a successful bed and breakfast. As Carol began the laborious process of renovating a historic Connecticut home, originally built by Captain William Grant in 1754, it became clear to her that the miracles and messages she received were coming from helpers beyond this world. Once the bed and breakfast opened, the evidence for paranormal activity became overwhelming. When a guest of the inn used dowsing rods to communicate with the spirits, a whole new chapter began, with Carol learning the backstory and desires of the twelve spirits who call the inn home.






Mini Book Breakdown 

This books follows the story of how Captain Grant's came to be and the spirits that live there. It's cool to see this woman's journey as she went through this long process. It was also nice to see how she connected with the spirits and how it changed her views on things. I loved hearing about the things the spirits would do to the guests that stayed at her Bed and Breakfast. 

I'd never heard about the Gathering before and the war with that the spirits that is going to come soon. It was also nice to see a different version of hell. Not hot and burning but a cold, alone place with no God there at all. No other humans, no contact. That sounds worse to me than burning forever. Being trapped in darkness with no love around you. It would drive one insane I think. 

I love how simple the author writes and how easy it is to follow her though all this. She starts way back to the experience she had as a child. So you really get to glimpse her life and how she has been in tune with things even before she knew it herself. Wonderful read. I enjoyed it very much. If you like ghosts, then you'll love this!

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - Review

The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of a multibillion-dollar startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end in the face of pressure and threats from the CEO and her lawyers. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work. For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When Carreyrou, working at The Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions,

Short Update + The Stand-In Book Review

I've been lurking around your blogs for a few hours today and trying to catch up but I doubt I will. I've just missed so much! Sorry!  Today, I'm feeling a little bit better so I thought I would update you guys, since I've not blogged any in two weeks. The posts you've seen since then are just ones that I had scheduled for a while. I'm on the hunt for an anxiety medicine and had a really bad reaction to one my doctor put me on. I'm currently on steroids for a week to help that reaction.  Also, my grandma passed away recently and I've been trying to deal with that and help my family. They are really having it rough right now and it's been killing me trying to help them.  Then there's stuff with my kiddo. So yeah, I've been gone for a bit and dealing with things. I'm really hoping to get straightened out and get back to normal because this has been a sucky time.  Onto something bookish! I did manage to finish a book before everything kinda
