Today I am getting an MRI done on my shoulder. I have had shoulder pain for about seven years, and after trying so many different things to avoid surgery, I have finally decided that surgery might be the only way. Is it weird that I am all excited to get the MRI? Forced to lay down, stay still, and not move. I will have no choice but to not accomplish anything. I know some people freak out at the thought of being in a tube, but not me. To me it’s a protective bubble that keeps the ToDo’s away. GO AWAY ToDo list! You can’t touch me in the tube. BE GONE!!! I think vampires had the right idea. They knew no one would open a coffin and ask them to do something. They weren’t being creepy, they were just smart.

The Wall: (The Island Series #1)
by Jen Minkman
3.9 Stars (90 Reviews)
Genre: Science Fiction | Science Fiction & Fantasy | Teen & Young Adult

FREE for a limited time

‘I walk toward the sea. The endless surface of the water extends to the horizon, whichever way I look.
Our world is small. We’re on our own, and we only have ourselves to depend on. We rely on the Force deep within us as taught to us by our forefathers.
If I were to walk westward from here, I’d come across a barrier – the Wall. Behind it, there are Fools. At least, that’s what everyone says. I’ve never seen one.’

Leia lives on an island where children leave their parents to take care of themselves when they’re just ten years old. Across the island runs a Wall that no one has ever crossed. The Fools living behind it should be shunned because they believe in salvation from across the sea. That’s what The Book says, the only thing left to the Eastern Islanders by their ancestors.
But when a strange man washes ashore and Leia meets a Fool face to face, her life will never be the same again. Walt, the boy from the other side of the Wall, isn’t as foolish as she was always led to believe. And as Leia and Walt set out to bring the truth about both their societies to light, all the things they once took for granted fall by the wayside.

Their island world is about to change… for better or for worse.

Among the Reeds: The true Story of how a Family survived the Holocaust
by Tammy Bottner
4.7 Stars (86 Reviews)
Genre: Biographies & Memoirs

FREE for a limited time

During the dark days of the Holocaust, a Jewish family struggles to survive.

When her son was born, Tammy Bottner experienced flashbacks of being hunted by the Nazis. The strange thing is, these experiences didn’t happen to her. They happened to her grandmother decades earlier and thousands of miles away.

Back in Belgium, Grandma Melly made unthinkable choices in order to save her family during WWII, including sending her two-year-old son, Bottner’s father, into hiding in a lonely Belgian convent. Did the trauma that Tammy Bottner’s predecessors experience affect their DNA? Did she inherit the “memories” of the war-time trauma in her very genes?

In this moving family memoir, told partly from Melly’s perspective, the author, a physician, recounts the saga of her family’s experiences during the Holocaust. This tale, part history, part scientific reflection on epigenetics, takes the reader on a journey that may read like a novel, but is all the more fascinating for being true.
