This review is from: Mission Washington, D.C.: A Scavenger Hunt Adventure (Travel Book For Kids) (Kindle Edition)
As even an amateur reviewer with a passion for writing, I completely understand that I am completely outside of the target audience for this kindlebook of Mission Washington DC; A Scavenger Hunt Adventure (Travel Book For Kids) by Catherine Aragon yet I am aware of people in my life with kids who might enjoy this kindlebook. More or less, my husband and I enjoy living in the Washington D.C. area and I was curious to see some of the Washington D.C. area landmarks in this kindlebook that included among the following; photo of the Capital building, reference to military unmanned aerial vehicles in the Air & Space Museum,picture of William Shakespeare from the National Archives, image from the Museum of American History,picture of Dorothy’s Ruby Red Slippers From the Wizard of Oz,picture of Michelle Obama’s 2009 Inaugural Gown, and more. There is also a creative fiction reference to the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) with the reference of the SIA.

More Than How She Seems Initially,
This review is from: Lunch Lady and the Author Visit Vendetta: Lunch Lady #3 (Kindle Edition)
This kindlebook of Lunch Lady and the Author Visit Vendetta: Lunch Lady #3 by Jarrett J. Krosoczka touches upon the mysterious circumstances that occur around a certain author that keeps a certain mystery about him. This seems innocent enough except the author is distant with most of the kids at the beginning of the story and unusually inquisitive with a gym coach who he seemed to know about even before the gym coach introduces himself. I also like this story because the writing is done in a strong way early on to help understand Lunch Lady’s motivations for creating an introduction with the author who visits the school.
Candid Michelle Obama,
This review is from: Chasing Light: Michelle Obama Through the Lens of a White House Photographer (Kindle Edition)
Chasing Light: Michelle Obama Through the Lens of a White House Photographer by Amanda Lucidon touches on multiple pivotal moments photography speaking during Michelle Obama’s First Lady years. The author of this kindlebook adds a multi-dimensional touch to her photography career via admitting how she became a photographer some time after she relocated to the Washington D.C. area (including a fascinating story on how her late father somehow partially knew how her career was going to progress even before she was certain of the outcome). I also like that there is a balanced mix of photos featuring various education based moments such as a CNN interview she was a part of for what is listed to be the Let Girls Learn initiative and overseas trips (such as the photo of Michelle Obama with her daughters Sashia and Malia as they visited the Great Wall of China in March 2014).

Taylor Swift Musically Unleashed,
This review is from: reputation (Audio CD)
I admit that I got the chance to pre-order Taylor Swift’s Reputation cd music collection on October 20 2017. This decision was shaped by the fact that I first bought her Speak Now collection in 2010, then one of her Red music editions in 2012, and one of the Blank Space editions in 2014 and was pleased with the music on these collections. Fortunately, after listening to the Reputation cd I am glad to have preordered as I found listening to the whole cd to be worth it with some songs being super bold and could make for some very bold music stories andor discussions in the present andor future such as King of My Heart, Getaway Car, What You Want, Dress, Reputation, Call It What You Want, Don’t Blame Me,and New Year’s Day etc. However, as I am an eclectic music listener I am obviously going to keep an open mind to listening to andor watching a music video that is made available in connection to any of the songs on Reputation by Taylor Swift. However, it is important to have an open mind to listening to various music genres prior to obtaining this cd as a multiple number of the songs have some synth pop and hints of electronica on them (i.e. similar to the euphoria vibe of her Wildest Dreams song).
Spiritual Themes In This Film,
This review is from: Thor: Ragnarok (Theatrical Version) (Amazon Video)
I found this film Thor Ragnarock Theatrical version to be even better than both Thor films combined. Yes, I did enjoy both Thor films and my husband also enjoyed this Thor film with me. It was fortunately easy for me to convince him to see this Thor film for my birthday just 4 days ago and he helped explain some of the character additions to the Thor film. In addition to Chris Hemsworth, Idris Alba, and Tom Hiddleston there are various cameos and appearances from other actors/actresses for Thor Ragnarock; Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Mark Ruffalo,Benedict Cumberbatch, Anthony Hopkins, Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, Jeff Goldblum etc. This film involves the character of Thor working with his brother Loki to control the destruction of Ragnarock.

A Calming Music Playlist
This Amazon music playlist of New Age Relaxation lives up to its title. Fortunately, my husband is open-minded about the type of music I choose to play to help me go to sleep quicker. I have been blessed to easily go to sleep within a fantastic timeframe because of the easing music melodies in many of the songs. This Amazon music playlist starts out with the song Return to Innocence by Enigma (a song that I first heard via local radio in middle school). The playlist then goes into Only Time by Enya (a song that I first heard when I was stationed in Japan through the military in the early 2000s). Of course there are much more tunes available on this New Age Relaxation playlist whether a person is turning to this playlist to go to sleep faster or to just simply chill out with such tunes as Love Awakening by Patrick Bernard, Marble Halls by Meav, Stars by Brian Eno, Serenity by Liquid Mind, Stellamara by Kyrie Eleison, Call of the Sea by David Arkenstone, Turning to Peace by Paul Schwartz, The Future is Beautiful by Daniel Kobialka, Angel Wings by Herb Ernst, Deep Peace by Bill Douglas, Love Awakening by Patrick Bernard, and more.
