The Yogi's CurseThe Yogi’s Curse

Zoe and Zak are back in India. Again. And this time they’re attending Moonstock Himalayan Boarding School, which might seem fun except for the fact that the school is a little strange. Students ride elephants instead of school buses, snarling monkeys work as security guards, and angry parrots monitor the halls. And even when they manage to get used to the wildlife, the food is absolutely terrible.But living with a bunch of other kids their age can be a lot of fun too, or at least it seems that way until Zoe’s roommate goes missing. Following the directions written on a steamy bathroom mirror, Zoe and Zak fly through the clouds on their magic carpet to learn that the two of them have been chosen yet again. This time they’ve been asked to lift the Yogi’s Curse.It’s not going to be easy. Zoe and Zak don’t even know what the Yogi’s Curse is let alone how to lift it, but like it or not, they soon discover that a whole lot of people are depending on them. Now, if they’re going to save the day, they’re going to have to fool the monkey guards, avoid the nasty parrots, and maybe even develop a supernatural ability or two. Because lurking beneath Moonstock is a powerful new enemy. And if Zoe and Zak can’t stop him, nobody can.

My  thoughts:

As soon as I started reading this I knew I was going to like it even though I am not a middle grade child but about to adventure college life. I liked the way Zoe and Zak friendships have grown, yes they still annoy each other occasionally but when the going gets tough they are solid friends who will do anything for each other which is just as well as their adventure leads them into some scary things including starting a new boarding school in the Himalayan mountains. The book was lots of magic and fantasy and everything a child in particular would love but really I think any aged person would enjoy it. I was well written and the story flowed really well.

Blown Circuit Cosmic Blast By Lars Guignard Giveaway

BCCB

91odi1HEeRL._SL1500_Blown Circuit

From the bestselling author of Lethal Circuit comes the long-awaited sequel.

Michael Chase is back.

He survived China. Barely.

But now he’s got bigger problems.

He has enemies. Deadly enemies.

Good thing Michael is in no mood to play nice.

Michael survived China. Barely. But now he’s got bigger problems. A pair of coordinates broadcast on an obscure frequency have brought Michael to Istanbul, Turkey where credible chatter has emerged that a terrorist group plans to use a devastating device to hold the world hostage.

Designed by Nikola Tesla, arguably the greatest inventor of the Twentieth Century, the device is experimental, it is capable, and it has been missing for almost sixty years.
If Michael is to prevent a catastrophe, he’ll need to get to the device before the Conspiracy or risk upsetting the global balance of power forever. Of course, !nding the Tesla Device is one thing, knowing whom he can trust with it is another matter entirely.

To survive, he’ll have to do both. If he doesn’t, what started as a bad day is about to become a disaster.

Can Michael fight his way through the lies and deception to save the world?

If you can’t get enough of the action of Lee Child and Vince Flynn, the intrigue of Robert Ludlum, and the adventure of Clive Cussler and James Rollins, you are going to LOVE Blown Circuit!

Pop Bands Review

When I got asked to review Pop Bands I wasn’t really sure about them, But once I got them I have been using them ever since, Its a hair band but can also be used as a bracelet when not in your hair or just generally as a hair band, The good thing is most hair-bands fall out but these ones didn’t I have quite thick hair so it is hard to do a hair band up and make it stay in or sometimes it is hard enough putting a hair band in my hair but this Pop Bands, stayed in my hair securely until I got home they are really really good and when I don’t have them in my hair I always have one on my wrist I love them as hair bands and as a bracelet I was very surprised with this product and I would definitely recommend it to parents of younger children.
