Becoming Alpha: Volume 1 (Alpha Girl)Becoming Alpha: Volume 1 (Alpha Girl) by Aileen Erin

Genre(s): Horror

Book 1 in The Alpha Girl Series

One stupid party. One stupid boy. One stupid kiss. And my life was virtually over.

Tessa McCaide has a unique talent for getting into trouble. Then again, it isn’t easy for a girl with visions to ignore what she sees. Luckily Tessa and her family are leaving California and moving halfway across the country, giving her the perfect opportunity to leave her reputation as “Freaky Tessa” behind.

But Tessa doesn’t realize that kissing the wrong guy in her new Texas town could land her in far more trouble than she ever imagined. Like being forced to attend St. Ailbe’s Academy, a secret boarding school for werewolves.

Even if the wrong guy did accidentally turn her into one of “them” and doom her to attending the weirdest high school ever, Tessa can’t help her growing attraction to the mysterious Dastien Laurent.

When vampires attack St. Alibe’s and her visions pinpoint an enemy in their midst, Tessa realizes that boy drama and her newfound canine tendencies might just be the least of her problems.

Prism Prism by Katy Perry

Genre(s): Pop

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
First, let me say that I am from a time, that music had more meaning, at least in my eyes. I am a huge fan of bands, like Jane’s Addiction, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden. Over time, I have become much more eclectic, and realized the power of music past, adding the likes of the Rolling Stones, Queen, Elton John, and the “Man In Black”, to name a few. Also, Dave Mathews, and for those who are not familiar, almost all of Blue October, have been great story tellers, for my generation.

I have been bothered by the lack of depth, in the last decade or so. So much bubble-gum pop, (C)rap, with lyrics that defy humanity, and only focus on the using of other people, for both pain, and pleasure.

I was not a big fan of Katy Perry, and I thought that, not so much her fault, the audience that she catered too, was far too young, for the explicit lyrics, she spewed out. Stupid parents, bringing their children to concerts, so they could learn about endless drinking, three-somes, and other events, that were never meant for children. Yet they came in droves, dressed like Katy, and waited hours to get a glimpse of her. She was NO ROLE MODEL.

This album is different, much more grown up, and much more pleasing to the ears. The beginning is just ok. Roar, is certainly catchy, and deserved to be the top song on the album, and one I believe is intended for her original fans. The next few songs, are just ok, you can listen to them, and not feel the need to skip ahead. Not very challenging, lots of verse (insert short lyric) verse. Some of which, is still not intended for children.

Native Moon (Native American Flute for Sleep & Relaxation) Native Moon (Native American Flute for Sleep & Relaxation) by Sleep Tribe

Genre(s): New Age

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
Oh my gosh is this beautiful music. The main instrument is the Native American flute — but what makes it special is the way it is backed up by the 12-string guitar. The instruments create so many soothing textures along with keyboards and some nature sounds.

Ham: Slices of a Life: Essays and StoriesHam: Slices of a Life: Essays and Stories by Sam Harris

Genre(s): Humor

ham (noun) [hæm]
1 the hind leg of a hog, salted, smoked, and cured
2 second son of Noah
3 somebody who performs in an exaggerated showy style
-always hamming it up

Just when you thought you knew everything about ham, you discover that ham is also:
4 a reason to laugh about everyday life, and
5 an irresistible collection of humorous essays from a man who was born to entertain us.

In sixteen brilliantly observed true stories, Sam Harris emerges as a natural humorist in league with David Sedaris, Chelsea Handler, Carrie Fisher, and Steve Martin, but with a voice uniquely his own. Praised by the Chicago Sun-Times for his “manic, witty commentary,” and with a storytelling talent the New York Times calls “New Yorker– worthy,” he puts a comedic spin on full-disclosure episodes from his own colorful life. What better place to find painfully funny material than in growing up gay, gifted, and ambitious in the heart of the Bible belt? And that’s just the first cut: From partying to parenting, from Sunday school to getting sober, these slices of Ham will have you laughing and wiping away salty tears in equal measure with their universal and down-to-earth appeal. After all, there’s a little ham in all of us.

Trouble Trouble by Ray LaMontagne

Genre(s): Alternative Rock

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
First and foremost this is a relaxed, sexy album. Possibly the best make-out album released since the mid to late 70s. There will inevitable comparison’s of Lamontagne’s style to Van Morrison. This is not a bad thing. Personally I would say he’s nice cross of Morrison, Otis Redding, and Bob Dylan, with some contemporary 21st century notes as well. As a bottom line, his voice is highly emotive and a perfect foil for the somewhat minimal and honest production on the record.

The album is consistently excellent, and never monotonous. Its still growing on me, but I feell Lamontagne has more staying power than Jack Johnson, or any singer songwriter of this generation except Elliott Smith (RIP).

Get on this album early, it is guaranteed to be smashing success. Hopefully Lamontagne will have a long career. These songs are such a joy to experience.

The 99 Most Essential Gregorian Chants The 99 Most Essential Gregorian Chants by Various artists

Genre(s): Classical

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
I have a few Gregorian chant albums although I’m far from knowledgeable about the intricacies of Gregorian chant as a musical form. This is a fine collection of chants, and I particularly like that full works, including full masses, are included.

I haven’t been able to find too much on the performers, but the first 31 tracks are by the Collana Diretta da Bonifacio G. Baroffio, conducted by Enrico de Capitani. Father Bonifacio G. Baroffio was Choir Master of the Choir of the Sistine Chapel for a while, so if the group is really associated with him that would seem pretty credible.

I enjoy the fact that their “Missa Angelis” features prominent singing parts for women. So many of the big hit Gregorian chant albums of recent years (like Chant) have been performed by monks only, so it’s sometimes easy to lose sight of the fact that Gregorian chants were also sung by nuns and indeed by mixed choirs.

The “Congregation of St. Lazarus Autun” appears to be made up of members of the congregation of a church — actually the Cathedral Saint-Lazare in Autun, France. They perform nearly two thirds of the total album, and the performances seem good and satisfying so far.

It looks like only one of the tracks on this set has appeared in a previous “99″ collection — the “Darkest” set, so things look good in terms of repetition, which can be a problem with these sets. Total download size is 616 MB for 6.1 hours of music. Bitrates are variable and average between 203 and 242 kbps.

Recommended at the bargain price!

Two Sisters: A NovelTwo Sisters: A Novel by Mary Hogan

Genre(s): Literary Fiction

Mary Hogan’s powerful and poignant debut novel about two sisters—opposites in every way—plus their mother and the secrets and lies that define them all.

One family, two sisters, a lifetime of secrets . . .

The third child in a family that wanted only two, Muriel Sullivant has always been an outsider. Short, dark-haired and round, she worships her beautiful blonde sister, Pia, and envies the close bond she shares with their mother, Lidia. Growing up in their shadow, Muriel believes that if she keeps all their secrets—and she knows plenty, outsiders always do—they will love her, too.

But that was a long time ago. Now an adult, Muriel has accepted the disappointments in her life. With her fourth-floor walk-up apartment and entry-level New York City job, she never will measure up to Pia and her wealthy husband, their daughter, and their suburban Connecticut dream home. Muriel would like nothing better than to avoid her judgmental family altogether. One thing she does quite well.

Until the day Pia shows up to visit and share devastating news that Muriel knows she cannot tell—a secret that will force her to come to terms with the past and help her see her life and her family in unexpected new ways.

Bon Jovi Greatest Hits Bon Jovi Greatest Hits by Bon Jovi

Genre(s): Rock

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
It has been nearly 30 years since Bon Jovi broke out of New Jersey, and have driven many rock fans to tears and cheers. Since then, they’ve made mostly not just the cornerstones of arena rock that we’ve seen today, but honestly some of the most timeless songs that are still just as exciting to hear today, as they were back in their success days in the 80′s and 90′s. Hard to believe, they’ve still shown that they’ve got it after those eras as well. But when it has came down to it, they just keep getting better with age not just with new fans, but for those hard core fans who’ve owned their first copies of Slippery When Wet when they were first released back in the 1986. But, yet witha soon to be possible induction into the Rock & Roll Hall OF Fame, they have released a pair of hits albums not just to remind new fans and hard core that they weren’t just born to follow, they were born to hit home runs.

Bon Jovi Greatest Hits: The Ultimate Collection double album is a simple and straight-forward hits collection that delivers mostly well for all-around fans that’ve loved Bon Jovi through thick and thin. The collection does show it mostly well by including their prime cuts into one nice hits package. The songs have been remastered well, and feel like a new breath of fresh air, ina industry that stopped making really strong acts, and stronger songs.

A Land More Kind Than HomeA Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash

Genre(s): Literary Fiction

“Bold, daring, graceful, and engrossing.”
—Bobbie Ann Mason

“This book will knock your socks off….A first novel that sings with talent.”
—Clyde Edgerton

In his phenomenal debut novel—a mesmerizing literary thriller about the bond between two brothers and the evil they face in a small North Carolina town—author Wiley Cash displays a remarkable talent for lyrical, powerfully emotional storytelling. A Land More Kind than Home is a modern masterwork of Southern fiction, reminiscent of the writings of John Hart (Down River), Tom Franklin (Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter), Ron Rash (Serena), and Pete Dexter (Paris Trout)—one that is likely to be held in the same enduring esteem as such American classics as To Kill a Mockingbird, Of Mice and Men, and A Separate Peace. A brilliant evocation of a place, a heart-rending family story, a gripping and suspenseful mystery—with A Land More Kind than Home, a major American novelist enthusiastically announces his arrival.

DragonBox Algebra 5+DragonBox Algebra 5+

Genre(s): Education

DragonBox Algebra 5+ – The game that secretly teaches algebra

DragonBox Algebra 5+ Is perfect for giving young children a head start in mathematics and algebra. Children as young as five can easily begin to grasp the basic processes involved in solving linear equations without even realising that they are learning. The game is intuitive, engaging and fun, allowing anyone to learn the basics of algebra at his or her own pace.

DragonBox Algebra 5+ covers the following algebraic concepts:

* Addition
* Division
* Multiplication

Suitable from age five and up, DragonBox Algebra 5+ gives young learners the opportunity to get familiar with the basics of equation solving.

DragonBox uses a novel pedagogical method based on discovery and experimentation. Players learn how to solve equations in a playful and colorfull game environment where they are encouraged to experiment and be creative. By manipulating cards and trying to isolate the DragonBox on one side of the game board, the player gradually learns the operations required to isolate X on one side of an equation. Little by little, the cards are replaced with numbers and variables, revealing the addition, division and multiplication operators the player has been learning throughout the game.

Playing does not require supervision, although parents can assist them in transferring learned skills into pen and paper equation solving. It is a great game for parents to play with their kids and can even give them an opportunity to freshen up their own math skills.

DragonBox was developed by former math teacher Jean-Baptiste Huynh and has been heralded as a perfect example of game-based learning. As a result, it is currently forming the basis of an extensive research project by the Center For Game Science at the University of Washington.

Air: The Bach AlbumAir: The Bach Album by Anne Akiko Meyers

Genre(s): Classical

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
While none are perfect and we all fall short of the glory of God, this album is as near to perfection as we mere mortals achieve. Even the production value is fabulous: from the cover to the clarity of the recording, the setting to sonorous tone of the Strads, it’s hard to imagine improvements. Other reviewers will more elequoently describe the joys of each piece, I will simply sum up my experience as this: were the notion of sublime to take musical form, this is what you would hear. A truly terrific album.
