Book of the Month

My book choice, which may be new or a re-read.

(Disclaimer: Links are affiliate links. This is not a sponsored post. Just sharing books & products that I enjoy!)

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.

Well the first week of online classes is complete. Sort of. Meaning that I did not get more then, some online reading done. I sent frustrating emails about assignment confusion and content not being available. I'm waiting on textbook deliveries, by the pony express (Canada Post). I had to pick a 6th course because one was not being taught this semester. I know they (registrars office) are busy but it helps to get this done earlier then a week before classes start. Yes, I'm a bit pissy but I hate doing things at the last minute. Let's not forget the wonky internet connection, from the storm earlier in the week. One minute pages are opening the next, nothing. Okay that was a great vent.

Even though I couldn't get the start that I wanted to, I've let it go and am using this "free" time to work on building nadiadonella.com and to get in some leisure reading.

On this months (possibly into October) reading list:
Be Careful What You Pray For: A Novel by Kimberla Roby
What the Nanny Saw by Fiona Neill
The Secret Life of a Slummy Mummy  by Fiona Neill
Angelopolis by Danielle Trussoni
Watcher of the Dark: A Jeremiah Hunt Supernatural Thriller (The Jeremiah Hunt Chronicle) by Joseph Nassise
