Book Review

It's a miracle! I've finally finished a book, over the course of 2 days. I've had a long reading drought. For those of you who don't know, I love reading, and finding the time has been difficult. Long rides on the SkyTrain and sitting in the hospital (for a family member) gave me the time I needed, to get my reading in. It was Black Berry, Sweet Juice: On Being Black and White in Canadaby Canadian, Lawrence Hill. I'm a bit late, since this was published in 2001, but that's okay. Better late than never, especially when it's a great read, like Black Berry, Sweet Juice was. Lawrence Hill shares his and others experiences, through interviews, "On being black and white in Canada." Check it out, it's a great read!

An early Easter treat! It's kind of a bad thing that there's a Purdys store within walking distance, but it's also a good thing, that they are in walking distance. I can work off a couple calories! You can get a pre-packaged assortment or pick from many of the chocolates, not all, your favourites. I like that. Who wants to only eat half of a box, because your favourite snowballs or hedgehogs weren't included? I haven't had a bad experience with them yet and the customer service is impeccable. Thanks Purdy's!

I hope you are all having a great week! If not at least the week is halfway over. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Angelopolis, written by Danielle Trussoni, published in 2013. I'm a big fan of supernatural books and this definitely hit the mark for me. Angelopolis was written with the a great mix of imagination (mostly) and religious history (some), if I'm remembering my bible stories correctly. If you follow stories from the bible to a tea and are easily offended, I would suggest not reading this because it is a work of fiction. Otherwise take it with a grain of salt and just enjoy great writing.

The descendants of fallen angels, the Nephilim, have been trying for centuries to take over Earth, making it their new Heaven. Getting back into Heaven, hasn't worked out so well. The Nephilim, are heading this attack on humanity. The goal? To eliminate all of human kind, except for the ones they need as their slaves. An organization, the angel hunters/Watchers has been keeping track of them for centuries to keep them at bay, with many unethical and sinister happenings along the way. Much if this including dissection, interrogation, to the elimination of the angelic species, altogether. Unfortunately we won't know who wins the battle, until the next installment. When will that be? No clue.

Rating of Angelopolis: 3/5

New scratching post for Kai, because I like my chair. So far, so good. Super easy to assemble. 2 dowels and 2 screws. Purchased online at Bed Bath & Beyond. I chose a Canadian retailer because I wanted to avoid duty & exchange rates, which can sometimes increase the price by double or more. This was the most economical choice to me. There were other options like Amazon.ca and eBay.ca, but the price difference was ridiculous. $55.95 CAD before taxes vs $109.99 CAD, SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post.
