Artemis Fowl is a great book. It’s the first in this children’s series, and such a great story!  If you read it you will love it and buy the rest of the books. This is a series that you will read all of them, back to back!

It’s perfect for those who enjoy fantasy. Artemis is an incredibly smart boy whose father was killed when Artemis was much younger. Artemis’ mother is emotionally devastated and spends most of her time by herself, leaving Artemis to his own devices. And while this is sad for Artemis, it’s not overdone or depressing. It also makes him a fantastic character that kids become completely invested in.

If you have a child, or know of one, who is always thinking, always wanting to experiment… a kid with a vivid imagination who’s just too clever for their own good, this is a fantastic book for them. Heck, it’s good for anyone who loves a reading adventure!

11/22/63 is a novel about a time-traveler named Jake Epping who attempts to travel back and stop the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

This is a really great novel. Stephen King has created a fantastic and unique time travel mechanic, which really throws a different spin on what we usually run into in time travel stories, and even has a twist near the end that causes the reader along with the protagonist to change the way they had learned to look at things. The historical content is well-researched, immersive and detailed. King’s protagonist is a relatable and interesting character, and many of the other characters are splendidly fleshed-out and memorable.

Hell's Princess

This book is a mini bio of a purported female serial killer/black widow from over 110 years ago. It is a very well researched second and third hand account of the dastardly life of Norwegian immigrant Brynhild “Belle” Gunness. She lured lonely men to her “murder farm” and butchered them partially for their insurance money but mostly for sheer pleasure.The book pulls together accounts (sometimes very dry) of court documents and personal remembrances that paint a picture of what “might have happened”. There are photographs of Belle herself, dead husbands. missing farm help, newspaper clippings and little animated vignettes. That is the Kindle in Motion part.
