I love reading, Christian, Biographies, Autobiographies, Cookbooks, Fiction, Historical Fiction, History, Memoir, Mystery, Romance, Suspense, Thriller, Parenting, Marriage, Christian Counseling, Health, Natural and Herbal, Childcare and Teaching, Inspirational as well as Alaskan.
I prefer a printed copy that I can hold in my hands and become old friends with, but will also accept E-books in Kindle, PDF or Nook formats.
I am a Christian and seek to glorify my Lord. As such I will not read any erotic, paranormal, vampire, or such books. I also will stop reading any book that has bad language (Cursing and taking my Lord’s name in vain.), and books with gratuitous sex. This is one reason I have chosen to be associated with the Publishing Companies and the Authors that are on my site because I feel safe recommending them to others.

Season of the Harvest
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book was pushing it out of my comfort zone. First, as I have said before I am NOT big on Science Fiction. So the whole transforming shapechanging alien thing was over the top for me. And really could have been left completely out of the story and still made a complete and readable science geeks with lots of money trying to pull a Hitler and wipe out most of the human (Non Pure) race with the bio-genetic seeds and I would have bought the whole premiss of the book.
BUUUT, Shape...shifting...aliens....who are a combo of stinky goo a 10 ft long poison lasso stinger they keep in their chest and a swiss army knife head and arms...Yeah. Not buying it!
To top it off this modified corn is SO POWERFUL...they feed ONE KERNAL to a monkey and in a couple of days it has turned into the start of one of these "aliens", GETS OUT of an underground sealed bomber bunker with over 123 well armed specialists guarding just IT!
The language was like a 1980's movie where they threw words at each other.
AND FINALLY, THEY DROP A NUKE AND IT IS KILLING THEM UNDERGROUND FROM THE FIRE AND HEAT YET THEY ARE ABLE TO GET THE DOORS OPEN, GET OUT WITH SUITS ON, WALK AROUND, LAND HELICOPTORS AND FLY AWAY!?!?!?
NOW THE GOOD PARTS!!
I LIKED THE TWISTS AND TURNS. I LIKE HOW THE CATS WERE LIKE LITTLE SENSORS BY REACTING SO WILDLY TO THE CREATURES. LOVE THE TIDBITS OF PEOPLE'S LIVES THAT WERE WOVEN IN.
