Modern Astrology: Harness the Stars to Discover Your Soul's True Purpose



My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Astrology. When did I first get into astrology? It had to have been over 20 years ago, when I was a kid. 
I'm a pisces, by the way...
I spent years reading book after book about my sign, compatible signs, signs I wouldn't be compatible with, and so on. It was pretty darn interesting. Now, I'm not saying that I agreed with every single thing I read in those books, because some seemed to be pretty vague, and basically describe just about anyone. Then, there were some books that were more detailed and seemed to describe me a little too perfectly.

It has been quite a while since I've found a good one that I've liked. This one isn't like many of the other books that I read before. The reason I really like this one is because it suggests you create your natal chart first , (you can easily do this-just look on the web on how to create one), and then you use that info to learn more specific stuff about your particular sign and whatnot. It's way more detailed information that what's found in traditional astrology books, since it gathers more info than just your sign. It is seriously interesting and fun too!

Super Easy Vegan Cheese Cookbook Review



Super Easy Vegan Cheese Cookbook: 70 Delicious Plant-Based Cheeses


My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I've been vegan for almost four years now. I can't get enough of all the cool recipes that I have been finding out there. I also love to experiment and come up with my own recipes or tweaking non-vegan recipes into something that is plant based. It's fun. 
I was sent this book a few weeks ago and you know what?
This book rocks. Why? Because my husband and I LOVE learning how to make our own vegan foods. Making cheese is one thing we love to try and do. I've made a couple different kinds in the past, but this book is filled with so many kinds that I have never even thought or knew I could make a vegan version of. It's so creative and doesn't sound too complicated. I love all of the options and am going to try several, if not all, of the recipes in here. I highly recommend if cheese is one thing you miss since becoming vegan. Better not only for the animals, but for your health as well.
