Five Presidents by Clint Hill

I purchased this book to read with my friend Laura. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Five Presidents by Clint Hill with Lisa McCubbin. Clint Hill was a secret service agent appointed to White House detail. During his career he served 5 U S Presidents, Dwight Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford. While each President has his own way of running the White House and each had their own hobbies and own unique personalities, Clint Hill was the person behind protecting them. Sometimes it was obvious he was there other times you wouldn’t know unless you looked for him. Some of the stories are very personal and some are very vivid, some seem tedious and some seem amazing once in a lifetime opportunities. The details of the behind the scenes for 5 different Presidents is amazingly told through his stories. What a great quick read with a glimpse into History!

Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst

I purchased this book to #buddyread with my sister. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst. No one wants to feel overlooked or rejected. This book is a ten day bible study to overcome the two core fears that feed insecurity by understanding the secret of belonging. Rejection has a way of feeding into relationships even when it isn’t intended to be that way. Sometimes it’s more about how you feel than someone else left you out. Get past the enemy whispering in your ear and understand why you feel that way.

The Night Country by Melissa Albert

I purchased this book from Amazon to read with my bestie @mycornerforbooksand. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟 1/2 The Night Country by Melissa Albert. Ok let me just say I adored The Hazelwood so when this one came out I was chomping at the bit to read it. I maybe should have waited. In the beginning I was so confused and then the story spins and I felt like I knew exactly where I was again it was a very twisty road. You definitely have to finish it to understand it all which was great but the story building from book 1 was more of what I was looking for.

A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

I purchased this book from Barnes and Noble to read. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer. When this book came out I wasn’t going to read it. But there was so much hype and then the second book released and there was even more hype, so I caved. I bought it with a gift card from Barnes and Noble and dove into it. I was not disappointed. The explanation and transition between worlds worked beautifully. I fell in love with Rhen and Grey, (maybe Grey more so) I hated Lillith and wanted both worlds for Harper and Jacob and Noah. In order to break the curse Rhen must make a girl fall in love with him and save his Kingdom. Sounds easy right? Only he hasn’t been able to do it in the last 487 seasons so why is this one different? This is his last season, if it doesnt happen the curse and Lillith wins.
