  • Shadowhunters and downworlders : a Mortal… by Claire
    ★★★★☆

    Shadowhunter - The Child of an Angel and a human.

    Downworlder - the child of a demon and human.

    Both walk our streets and have ordinary lives; but in the shadows a war rages.  Members of Valintine's Circle seek to rid the mundane (ordinary human) world of anyone with demon blood. What would you do to save innocent people whose only crime was to be born different?

  • The Eternal Maria Callas
    ★★★★★

    This is a wonderful metrage of Maria Callas's interviews and performances highlighting closeups of her face providing a unique glimpse not only of her vocal prowess but her skills as an actress, as someone who really lived her role as an Opera star and a clear telling for the un-aquainted of what went into those relationships and what worked and when some of them stopped working how she dealt with the demands on her. Easily the greatest singer of all time this is not to be missed.

  • The elephant whisperer : my life with the herd… by Anthony, Lawrence.
    ★★★★★

    Here is a true story about a naturalist turned elephant connoisseur struggling to put together an Eco-tourist reserve in South Africa. Lovingly told true stories of how the African elephants came to thula thula and all the efforts ongoing daily to ensure a safe livelihood for future generations of elephants. There are seldom few books devoted exclusively to elephants; and while Lawrence’s dog Max features slightly at one point this book is in a class by itself...not only does it offer the reader a James Harriet style view of animal husbandry but it is adapted for all ages and treats delicate subject matter such as death, neglect, poaching, and human error in an educational manner. Not only are you certain to love The Elephant Whisperer; you will be ready for your first nature conservation tour whenever it comes.

  • The hate U give
    ★★★★★

    The

    Hate

    U

    Give ---is the movie based on the best-selling novel by Angie Thomas telling the story of Starr Carter who lives in two worlds: the poor/victimized black neighborhood where she resides and the mostly white prep school she attends. This uneasy balance is shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood friend by a white police officer. Facing pressures from all sides, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what's right. There are multiple heros in this film and it's a must be seen for the whole family. Great acting and casting.

  • Eat dirt : why leaky gut may be the root cause… by Axe, Josh,
    ★★★★★

    Dr. Axe explains that 70% of our immune system is located in the gut; when it's under attack, our health suffers. Leaky gut syndrome is thought to be the ground zero for many of the most confounding health crises including but not limited to allergies, asthma, food sensitivities, diabetes, digestive diseases, arthritis, chronic fatigue and even autism. By ditching hand sanitizers, and supplementing with more essential oils for personal products, reducing antibiotics usage, managing stress, and incorporating more pro and pre biotic rich foods into our diets we can conquer the over exposure to toxins in our lives. I really like the individual recepies, and candida gluten-free supplement recommendations and all the solutions at the end of the book. The only downside is that many authors are not accentuating the importance of proper label reading and sticking to exclusively organic products in order to avoid trace amounts of transfats and other toxins so I am not sure this book by itself is a good detox book; but very relevent and informative.
