Way before Twilight I had a thing for vampires. While browsing new paperbacks over the weekend I discovered Thomas Emson's "Skarlet" and decided to pick it up. The plot? Dozens of people die after taking a new drug called Skarlet. Forty-eight hours later, the dead wake up and begin butchering the living for their blood. It's Blade meets The Walking Dead.
My friends Joanne & George Belev gave me Invisible Acts of Power by Caroline Myss for my birthday. Myss explains how we become channels for divine grace and a conduit for miracles through kind, compassionate, generous actions, or, as she calls them, invisible acts of power. When we act compassionately, without a private agenda or expectation of credit or reward, God works invisibly, anonymously through us. And as we move from visible acts, such as giving a friend a helping hand, to invisible acts, such as prayer and healing, we undergo a profound journey of personal empowerment.
I recently finished 50 Shades of Grey. What can I say about this book that you haven't already heard? I am looking forward to 50 Shades Darker which I've read has a lot of surprises.
