It's going to be a movie starring one of my favorite actors, Cole Sprouse. This moving story is reminiscent of stories such as John Green's The Fault in Our Stars. Two teens fall in love with just one minor complication - they can’t get within a few feet of each other without risking their lives. As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for Five Feet Apart is: "Can you love someone you can never touch? Stella Grant likes to be in control—even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions. The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Soon, he’ll turn eighteen and then he’ll be able to unplug all these machines and actually go see the world, not just its hospitals. Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment. What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?"

I have not read the book version, but it sounds just as riveting with some slight differences! I hope it's as good or even better than the show. As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for You: A Novel is: "From debut author Caroline Kepnes comes You, one of Suspense Magazine’s Best Books of 2014, and a brilliant and terrifying novel for the social media age. When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card. There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting. As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder. A terrifying exploration of how vulnerable we all are to stalking and manipulation, debut author Caroline Kepnes delivers a razor-sharp novel for our hyper-connected digital age. You is a compulsively readable page-turner that’s being compared to Gone Girl, American Psycho, and Stephen King’s Misery."

The Only Woman in the Room by Marie Benedict is an easy must-read. It sounds like a very well-researched (yet fictionalized) account of Hedy Lamarr's life. As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for The Only Woman in the Room is: "Her beauty almost certainly saved her from the rising Nazi party and led to marriage with an Austrian arms dealer. Underestimated in everything else, she overheard the Third Reich’s plans while at her husband’s side, understanding more than anyone would guess. She devised a plan to flee in disguise from their castle, and the whirlwind escape landed her in Hollywood. She became Hedy Lamarr, screen star. But she kept a secret more shocking than her heritage or her marriage: she was a scientist. And she knew a few secrets about the enemy. She had an idea that might help the country fight the Nazis…if anyone would listen to her. A powerful novel based on the incredible true story of the glamour icon and scientist whose groundbreaking invention revolutionized modern communication, The Only Woman in the Room is a masterpiece."

I have read the author's first book, In the Dark Dark Woods, and hope this one is just as good! As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for The Woman in Cabin 10 is: "In this tightly wound, enthralling story reminiscent of Agatha Christie’s works, Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. The sky is clear, the waters calm, and the veneered, select guests jovial as the exclusive cruise ship, the Aurora, begins her voyage in the picturesque North Sea. At first, Lo’s stay is nothing but pleasant: the cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests are elegant. But as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a dark and terrifying nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All passengers remain accounted for—and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo’s desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong… With surprising twists, spine-tingling turns, and a setting that proves as uncomfortably claustrophobic as it is eerily beautiful, Ruth Ware offers up another taut and intense read in The Woman in Cabin 10—one that will leave even the most sure-footed reader restlessly uneasy long after the last page is turned."

As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for Of Blood and Bone is: "They look like an everyday family living an ordinary life. But beyond the edges of this peaceful farm, unimaginable forces of light and dark have been unleashed. Fallon Swift, approaching her thirteenth birthday, barely knows the world that existed before—the city where her parents lived, now in ruins and reclaimed by nature since the Doom sickened and killed billions. Traveling anywhere is a danger, as vicious gangs of Raiders and fanatics called Purity Warriors search for their next victim. Those like Fallon, in possession of gifts, are hunted—and the time is coming when her true nature, her identity as The One, can no longer be hidden. In a mysterious shelter in the forest, her training is about to begin under the guidance of Mallick, whose skills have been honed over centuries. She will learn the old ways of healing; study and spar; encounter faeries and elves and shifters; and find powers within herself she never imagined. And when the time is right, she will take up the sword, and fight. For until she grows into the woman she was born to be, the world outside will never be whole again."

As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for Queen of Air and Darkness is: "What if damnation is the price of true love? Innocent blood has been spilled on the steps of the Council Hall, the sacred stronghold of the Shadowhunters. In the wake of the tragic death of Livia Blackthorn, the Clave teeters on the brink of civil war. One fragment of the Blackthorn family flees to Los Angeles, seeking to discover the source of the disease that is destroying the race of warlocks. Meanwhile, Julian and Emma take desperate measures to put their forbidden love aside and undertake a perilous mission to Faerie to retrieve the Black Volume of the Dead. What they find in the Courts is a secret that may tear the Shadow World asunder and open a dark path into a future they could never have imagined.

It's an enthralling new historical novel from a national best selling author. In it, two women—a female spy recruited to the real-life Alice Network in France during World War I and an unconventional American socialite searching for her cousin in 1947—are brought together in a mesmerizing story of courage and redemption. It sounds very interesting! As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for The Alice Network is: "1947. In the chaotic aftermath of World War II, American college girl Charlie St. Clair is pregnant, unmarried, and on the verge of being thrown out of her very proper family. She's also nursing a desperate hope that her beloved cousin Rose, who disappeared in Nazi-occupied France during the war, might still be alive. So when Charlie's parents banish her to Europe to have her "little problem" taken care of, Charlie breaks free and heads to London, determined to find out what happened to the cousin she loves like a sister. 1915. A year into the Great War, Eve Gardiner burns to join the fight against the Germans and unexpectedly gets her chance when she's recruited to work as a spy. Sent into enemy-occupied France, she's trained by the mesmerizing Lili, the "Queen of Spies", who manages a vast network of secret agents right under the enemy's nose. Thirty years later, haunted by the betrayal that ultimately tore apart the Alice Network, Eve spends her days drunk and secluded in her crumbling London house. Until a young American barges in uttering a name Eve hasn't heard in decades, and launches them both on a mission to find the truth...no matter where it leads."

As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for One of Us Is Lying is: "Pay close attention and you might solve this. On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention. Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule. Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess. Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing. Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher. And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app. Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon's dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder.

It's a treat for Big Little Lies fans, as her storytelling is always a page turner. As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for Nine Perfect Strangers is: "Nine people gather at a remote health resort. Some are here to lose weight, some are here to get a reboot on life, some are here for reasons they can’t even admit to themselves. Amidst all of the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these ten days might involve some real work. But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next ten days are going to be. Frances Welty, the formerly best-selling romantic novelist, arrives at Tranquillum House nursing a bad back, a broken heart, and an exquisitely painful paper cut. She’s immediately intrigued by her fellow guests. Most of them don’t look to be in need of a health resort at all. But the person that intrigues her most is the strange and charismatic owner/director of Tranquillum House. Could this person really have the answers Frances didn’t even know she was seeking? Should Frances put aside her doubts and immerse herself in everything Tranquillum House has to offer – or should she run while she still can? It’s not long before every guest at Tranquillum House is asking exactly the same question. Combining all of the hallmarks that have made her writing a go-to for anyone looking for wickedly smart, page-turning fiction that will make you laugh and gasp, Liane Moriarty’s Nine Perfect Strangers once again shows why she is a master of her craft."

I can't wait to learn more about the Targaryen history hundreds of years before A Game of Thrones. As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for Fire & Blood: 300 Years Before A Game of Thrones is: "Centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones, House Targaryen—the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria—took up residence on Dragonstone. Fire & Blood begins their tale with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to recount the generations of Targaryens who fought to hold that iconic seat, all the way up to the civil war that nearly tore their dynasty apart. What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why was it so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? What was it like in Westeros when dragons ruled the skies? These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley. Readers have glimpsed small parts of this narrative in such volumes as The World of Ice & Fire, but now, for the first time, the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed. With all the scope and grandeur of Gibbon’s The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Fire & Blood is the the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens, giving readers a whole new appreciation for the dynamic, often bloody, and always fascinating history of Westeros."

It expands on the earlier events that helped shape the wizarding world, with some surprising nods to the Happy Potter stories that will delight fans like me, of both the books and films. As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is: "At the end of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world."

As stated on the Barnes & Noble website, the summary for Past Tense is: "Jack Reacher hits the pavement and sticks out his thumb. He plans to follow the sun on an epic trip across America, from Maine to California. He doesn’t get far. On a country road deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been: the town where his father was born. He thinks, What’s one extra day? He takes the detour. At the same moment, in the same isolated area, a car breaks down. Two young Canadians had been on their way to New York City to sell a treasure. Now they’re stranded at a lonely motel in the middle of nowhere. The owners seem almost too friendly. It’s a strange place, but it’s all there is. The next morning, in the city clerk’s office, Reacher asks about the old family home. He’s told no one named Reacher ever lived in town. He’s always known his father left and never returned, but now Reacher wonders, Was he ever there in the first place? As Reacher explores his father’s life, and as the Canadians face lethal dangers, strands of different stories begin to merge. Then Reacher makes a shocking discovery: The present can be tough, but the past can be tense . . . and deadly."

It will not be released until November, but I'm already greatly looking forward to it. Her memoir starts with her childhood and leads up to her life at the White House where she raised her children while representing the United States to the world. As stated on the Barnes & Noble website, the summary for 'Becoming' is: "In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare. In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same."

As such, I've added this novel to my 'books to read' collection! 'The Handmaid's Tale' has even been nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read. As stated on the Barnes & Noble website, the summary for 'The Handmaid's Tale' is: "Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the days before, when she lived and made love with her husband Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now…. Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, The Handmaid's Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and literary tour de force."

In preparation for the movie, I thought it would be a great idea to read the novel and do a comparison. I love satirical comedy! As stated on the Barnes & Noble website, the summary for 'Crazy Rich Asians' is: "When New Yorker Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country’s most eligible bachelor. On Nick’s arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers."

From the reviews, it's a very immersive, satisfying and tense novel to read, which makes it brilliantly exciting for me. It's a great thriller and an inside look at the personal lives in the intriguing world of finance. As stated on the Barnes & Noble website, the summary for 'The Banker's Wife' is: "On an early morning in November, a couple boards a private plane bound for Geneva, flying into a storm. Soon after, it simply drops off the radar, and its wreckage is later uncovered in the Alps. Among the disappeared is Matthew Werner, a banking insider at Swiss United, a powerful offshore bank. His young widow, Annabel, is left grappling with the secrets he left behind, including an encrypted laptop and a shady client list. As she begins a desperate search for answers, she determines that Matthew's death was no accident, and that she is now in the crosshairs of his powerful enemies. Meanwhile, ambitious society journalist Marina Tourneau has finally landed at the top. Now that she's engaged to Grant Ellis, she will stop writing about powerful families and finally be a part of one. Her entry into the upper echelons of New York's social scene is more appealing than any article could ever be, but, after the death of her mentor, she agrees to dig into one more story. While looking into Swiss United, Marina uncovers information that implicates some of the most powerful men in the financial world, including a few who are too close to home. The story could also be the answer to Annabel's heartbreaking search—if Marina chooses to publish it.

Gillian Flynn, author of 'Gone Girl', commented this about the book: "Sophie Hannah had a massive challenge in reviving the beloved Poirot, and she met it with heart and no small amount of little grey cells. I was thrilled to see the Belgian detective in such very, very good hands." As a long time lover of Gillian Flynn's books, it makes me even more excited to read 'The Mystery of Three Quarters'. As stated on the Barnes & Noble website, the summary for 'The Mystery of the Three Quarters' is: "Hercule Poirot returns home after an agreeable luncheon to find an angry woman waiting to berate him outside his front door. Her name is Sylvia Rule, and she demands to know why Poirot has accused her of the murder of Barnabas Pandy, a man she has neither heard of nor ever met. She is furious to be so accused, and deeply shocked. Poirot is equally shocked, because he too has never heard of any Barnabas Pandy, and he certainly did not send the letter in question. He cannot convince Sylvia Rule of his innocence, however, and she marches away in a rage. Shaken, Poirot goes inside, only to find that he has a visitor waiting for him — a man called John McCrodden who also claims also to have received a letter from Poirot that morning, accusing him of the murder of Barnabas Pandy... Poirot wonders how many more letters of this sort have been sent in his name. Who sent them, and why? More importantly, who is Barnabas Pandy, is he dead, and, if so, was he murdered? And can Poirot find out the answers without putting more lives in danger?"

As stated on the Barnes & Noble website, the summary of 'The Other Woman' is: "She was his best-kept secret … In an isolated village in the mountains of Andalusia, a mysterious Frenchwoman begins work on a dangerous memoir. It is the story of a man she once loved in the Beirut of old, and a child taken from her in treason’s name. The woman is the keeper of the Kremlin’s most closely guarded secret. Long ago, the KGB inserted a mole into the heart of the West—a mole who stands on the doorstep of ultimate power. Only one man can unravel the conspiracy: Gabriel Allon, the legendary art restorer and assassin who serves as the chief of Israel’s vaunted secret intelligence service. Gabriel has battled the dark forces of the new Russia before, at great personal cost. Now he and the Russians will engage in a final epic showdown, with the fate of the postwar global order hanging in the balance. Gabriel is lured into the hunt for the traitor after his most important asset inside Russian intelligence is brutally assassinated while trying to defect in Vienna. His quest for the truth will lead him backward in time, to the twentieth century’s greatest act of treason, and, finally, to a spellbinding climax along the banks of the Potomac River outside Washington that will leave readers breathless. Fast as a bullet, hauntingly beautiful, and filled with stunning double-crosses and twists of plot, The Other Woman is a tour de force that proves once again that “of all those writing spy novels today, Daniel Silva is quite simply the best” (Kansas City Star)."

It is from this that it derives its name. The French version of the city's name, "Cologne", has become standard in English as well. Located less than eighty kilometres from Belgium, in western Germany, Cologne is a 2,000-year-old city spanning both sides of the Rhine River. With over a million residents, Cologne is the fourth-largest city in Germany - behind Berlin, Hamburg, and Munich. Cologne is the largest city within the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region; which is the the largest metropolitan region in Germany with over 11 million people. Cologne was one of the most heavily bombed cities in Germany during World War II. The bombing obliterated the almost the entire city and reduced the population by 95%; mainly due to evacuation. With the intention of restoring as many historic buildings as possible, the successful postwar rebuilding has resulted in a very mixed and unique cityscape. Today Cologne hosts more than thirty museums and hundreds of galleries making it a major cultural centre for the Rhineland. The city's famous Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom) is the seat of the Catholic Archbishop of Cologne. Cologne is also home to one of Europe's oldest and largest universities - the University of Cologne (Universität zu Köln). 2016-11-21 18:49:06 Girls on Fire: A Novel by Robin Wasserman http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/girls-on-fire-a-novel-by-robin-wasserman/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/girls-on-fire-a-novel-by-robin-wasserman/ On Halloween, 1991, a popular high school basketball star ventures into the woods near Battle Creek, Pennsylvania, and disappears. Three days later, he’s found with a bullet in his head and a gun in his hand—a discovery that sends tremors through this conservative community, already unnerved by growing rumors of Satanic worship in the region. In the wake of this incident, bright but lonely Hannah Dexter is befriended by Lacey Champlain, a dark-eyed, Cobain-worshiping bad influence in lip gloss and Doc Martens. The charismatic, seductive Lacey forges a fast, intimate bond with the impressionable Dex, making her over in her own image and unleashing a fierce defiance that neither girl expected. But as Lacey gradually lures Dex away from her safe life into a feverish spiral of obsession, rebellion, and ever greater risk, an unwelcome figure appears on the horizon—and Lacey’s secret history collides with Dex’s worst nightmare. By turns a shocking story of love and violence and an addictive portrait of the intoxication of female friendship, set against the unsettled backdrop of a town gripped by moral panic, Girls on Fire is an unflinching and unforgettable snapshot of girlhood: girls lost and found, girls strong and weak, girls who burn bright and brighter—and some who flicker away. 2016-05-25 13:22:32 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0062415484/ Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/everyone-brave-is-forgiven-by-chris-cleave/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/everyone-brave-is-forgiven-by-chris-cleave/ London, 1939. The day war is declared, Mary North leaves finishing school unfinished, goes straight to the War Office, and signs up. Tom Shaw decides to ignore the war—until he learns his roommate Alistair Heath has unexpectedly enlisted. Then the conflict can no longer be avoided. Young, bright, and brave, Mary is certain she’d be a marvelous spy. When she is—bewilderingly—made a teacher, she finds herself defying prejudice to protect the children her country would rather forget. Tom, meanwhile, finds that he will do anything for Mary. And when Mary and Alistair meet, it is love, as well as war, that will test them in ways they could not have imagined, entangling three lives in violence and passion, friendship and deception, inexorably shaping their hopes and dreams. Set in London during the years of 1939–1942, when citizens had slim hope of survival, much less victory; and on the strategic island of Malta, which was daily devastated by the Axis barrage, Everyone Brave is Forgiven features little-known history and a perfect wartime love story inspired by the real-life love letters between Chris Cleave’s grandparents. This dazzling novel dares us to understand that, against the great theater of world events, it is the intimate losses, the small battles, the daily human triumphs that change us most. 2016-05-25 13:14:28 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1501124374/ Blackberry and Meyer Lemon Gin and Tonic http://www.favething.com/m-miller/food-drink/blackberry-and-meyer-lemon-gin-and-tonic/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/food-drink/blackberry-and-meyer-lemon-gin-and-tonic/ Blackberry and Meyer Lemon Gin and Tonics Ingredients: 12 blackberries 20 fresh mint leaves 2 Meyer lemons (can sub. regular lemons) 1/4 cup simple syrup 12 ounces good quality gin tonic water ice Directions: 1.

Manning was chosen by the Indianapolis Colts with the first overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft. From 1998 to 2010, he led the Colts to eight division championships, two AFC championships, and to a Super Bowl championship. Peyton Manning is one the best quarterbacks to ever play in the NFL and my personal all time favorite. 2016-01-20 15:25:03 http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/sports/football/nfl/broncos/story/2012-09-09/broncos-manning/57724914/1 After You by Jojo Moyes http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/after-you-by-jojo-moyes-1/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/after-you-by-jojo-moyes-1/ How do you move on after losing the person you loved? How do you build a life worth living? Louisa Clark is no longer just an ordinary girl living an ordinary life. After the transformative six months spent with Will Traynor, she is struggling without him. When an extraordinary accident forces Lou to return home to her family, she can’t help but feel she’s right back where she started. Her body heals, but Lou herself knows that she needs to be kick-started back to life. Which is how she ends up in a church basement with the members of the Moving On support group, who share insights, laughter, frustrations, and terrible cookies. They will also lead her to the strong, capable Sam Fielding—the paramedic, whose business is life and death, and the one man who might be able to understand her. Then a figure from Will’s past appears and hijacks all her plans, propelling her into a very different future. . . . 2015-11-30 21:29:53 http://www.amazon.com/Jojo-Moyes-Untitled-2/dp/0718177010/r Pear & Ginger Champagne Cocktails http://www.favething.com/m-miller/food-drink/pear-ginger-champagne-cocktails/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/food-drink/pear-ginger-champagne-cocktails/ These Pear & Ginger Champagne Cocktails will be great for New Years Eve. 2015-12-29 14:47:10 http://dishingupthedirt.com/featured/pear-ginger-sage-champagne-cocktails/ See Me by Nicholas Sparks http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/see-me-by-nicholas-sparks/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/see-me-by-nicholas-sparks/ Colin Hancock is giving his second chance his best shot. With a history of violence and bad decisions behind him and the threat of prison dogging his every step, he's determined to walk a straight line. To Colin, that means applying himself single-mindedly toward his teaching degree and avoiding everything that proved destructive in his earlier life. Reminding himself daily of his hard-earned lessons, the last thing he is looking for is a serious relationship. Maria Sanchez, the hardworking daughter of Mexican immigrants, is the picture of conventional success: with a degree from Duke Law School and a job at a prestigious firm in Wilmington, she is a dark-haired beauty with a seemingly flawless professional track record. And yet Maria has a traumatic history of her own, one that compelled her to return to her home town and left her questioning so much of what she once believed. A chance encounter on a rainswept road will alter the course of both Colin and Maria's lives, challenging deeply held assumptions about each other and ultimately, themselves. As love unexpectedly takes hold between them, they dare to envision what a future together could possibly look like . . . until menacing reminders of events in Maria's past begin to surface 2015-11-30 20:09:07 http://www.amazon.com/See-Me/dp/0751549991 Antipasto Skewers http://www.favething.com/m-miller/food-drink/antipasto-skewers/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/food-drink/antipasto-skewers/ These Antipasto Skewers are perfect for any occasion but I am going to make these up for our Christmas party. 2015-11-30 16:17:00 http://wearychef.com/antipasto-skewers-easy-party-food/#_a5y_p=2193528 White Cranberry Martini http://www.favething.com/m-miller/food-drink/white-cranberry-martini/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/food-drink/white-cranberry-martini/ These White Cranberry Martinis will be perfect for Christmas Party season. 2015-11-24 22:17:28 http://corkandspoon.wordpress.com/2012/12/05/white-cranberry-martini-a-winter-wonderland-cocktail/ Lafayette in the Somewhat United States by Sarah Vowell http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/lafayette-in-the-somewhat-united-states-by-sarah-vowell/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/lafayette-in-the-somewhat-united-states-by-sarah-vowell/ Chronicling General Lafayette’s years in Washington’s army, Vowell reflects on the ideals of the American Revolution versus the reality of the Revolutionary War. Riding shotgun with Lafayette, Vowell swerves from the high-minded debates of Independence Hall to the frozen wasteland of Valley Forge, from bloody battlefields to the Palace of Versailles, bumping into John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Lord Cornwallis, Benjamin Franklin, Marie Antoinette and various kings, Quakers and redcoats along the way. 2015-11-24 21:34:45 http://www.amazon.com/Lafayette-Somewhat-United-States-Vowell/dp/1594631743 Humans of New York: Stories by Brandon Stanton http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/humans-of-new-york-stories-by-brandon-stanton/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/humans-of-new-york-stories-by-brandon-stanton/ In the summer of 2010, photographer Brandon Stanton began an ambitious project -to single-handedly create a photographic census of New York City. The photos he took and the accompanying interviews became the blog Humans of New York. His audience steadily grew from a few hundred followers to, at present count, over fifteen million. In 2013, his book Humans of New York, based on that blog, was published and immediately catapulted to the top of the NY Times Bestseller List where it has appeared for over forty-five weeks. Now, Brandon is back with the Humans of New York book that his loyal followers have been waiting for: Humans of New York: Stories. Ever since Brandon began interviewing people on the streets of New York, the dialogue he's had with them has increasingly become as in-depth, intriguing and moving as the photos themselves. Humans of New York: Stories presents a whole new group of people in stunning photographs, with a rich design and, most importantly, longer stories that delve deeper and surprise with greater candor. Let Brandon Stanton and the Humans of New York he's photographed astonish you all over again this October. 2015-10-26 16:59:30 http://www.amazon.com/Humans-New-York-Brandon-Stanton/dp/1250058902/ Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/rogue-lawyer-by-john-grisham/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/rogue-lawyer-by-john-grisham/ Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. He works out of a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, fine leather chairs, a hidden gun compartment, and a heavily armed driver. He has no firm, no partners, no associates, and only one employee, his driver, who’s also his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddy. He lives alone in a small but extremely safe penthouse apartment, and his primary piece of furniture is a vintage pool table. He drinks small-batch bourbon and carries a gun. Sebastian defends people other lawyers won’t go near: a drug-addled, tattooed kid rumored to be in a satanic cult, who is accused of molesting and murdering two little girls; a vicious crime lord on death row; a homeowner arrested for shooting at a SWAT team that mistakenly invaded his house. Why these clients? Because he believes everyone is entitled to a fair trial, even if he, Sebastian, has to cheat to secure one. He hates injustice, doesn’t like insurance companies, banks, or big corporations; he distrusts all levels of government and laughs at the justice system’s notions of ethical behavior. 2015-10-26 15:08:08 http://www.amazon.com/Rogue-Lawyer-John-Grisham/dp/0385539436 Colors of the sunset. by Nikolay Roshchin http://www.favething.com/m-miller/amazing-photos/colors-of-the-sunset-by-nikolay-roshchin/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/amazing-photos/colors-of-the-sunset-by-nikolay-roshchin/ photo of a sunset in an unknown place. 2015-10-19 17:56:59 http://500px.com/photo/122431109/colors-of-the-sunset-by-nikolay-roshchin?from=popular&only=Nature A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/a-brief-history-of-seven-killings-by-marlon-james-3/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/a-brief-history-of-seven-killings-by-marlon-james-3/ On 3 December 1976, just weeks before the general election and two days before Bob Marley was to play the Smile Jamaica concert to ease political tensions, seven men from West Kingston stormed his house with machine guns. Marley survived and went on to perform at the free concert. But the next day he left the country and didn’t return for two years. 2015-10-16 20:51:04 http://www.amazon.com/Brief-History-Seven-Killings-Novel/dp/1594633940 City On Fire by Garth Risk Hallberg http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/city-on-fire-by-garth-risk-hallberg/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/city-on-fire-by-garth-risk-hallberg/ The all-too-human individuals who live within this extraordinary first novel are: Regan and William Hamilton-Sweeney, estranged heirs to one of the city's biggest fortunes; Keith and Mercer, the men who, for better or worse, love them; Charlie and Sam, two Long Island teenagers seduced by downtown's nascent punk scene; an obsessive magazine reporter; his spunky, West Coast-transplant neighbor; and the detective trying to figure out what they all have to do with a shooting in Central Park. From post-Vietnam youth culture to the fiscal crisis, from a lushly appointed townhouse on Sutton Place to a derelict squat on East 3rd Street, this city on fire is at once recognizable and completely unexpected. And when the infamous blackout of July 13th, 1977 plunges it into darkness, each of these entangled lives will be changed, irrevocably. 2015-10-16 18:16:37 http://www.amazon.com/City-Fire-Bill-Minutaglio/dp/1101946687 Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/pretty-girls-by-karin-slaughter/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/pretty-girls-by-karin-slaughter/ Sisters. Strangers. Survivors. More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia’s teenaged sister Julia vanished without a trace. The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that's cruelly ripped open when Claire's husband is killed. The disappearance of a teenage girl and the murder of a middle-aged man, almost a quarter-century apart: what could connect them? Forming a wary truce, the surviving sisters look to the past to find the truth, unearthing the secrets that destroyed their family all those years ago . . . and uncovering the possibility of redemption, and revenge, where they least expect it.

Along the way, they learn that evil does indeed cast long shadows, that justice and retribution are inextricably linked, and that no one can truly escape his fate. 2015-03-04 18:21:28 http://www.amazon.com/Brief-History-Seven-Killings-Novel/dp/159448600X/ref=lp_10207154011_1_12?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1425492702&sr=1-12 Anchor wrist tattoo http://www.favething.com/m-miller/tattoos/anchor-wrist-tattoo/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/tattoos/anchor-wrist-tattoo/ I love this simple black anchor tattoo on the wrist. 2015-03-03 14:23:12 http://tattooton.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/small-tattoo-designs-13.jpg The Martian by Andy Weir http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/the-martian-by-andy-weir/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/the-martian-by-andy-weir/ After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. 2015-02-27 21:13:19 http://www.amazon.com/Martian-Andy-Weir/dp/0553418025/ref=lp_10207159011_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1425070578&sr=1-2 The Painter by Peter Heller http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/the-painter-by-peter-heller/ http://www.favething.com/m-miller/books-to-read/the-painter-by-peter-heller/ The Painter is a contemporary Western about a 45-year-old artist and fly fisherman named Jim Stegner.

No one knew what existed beyond the fortress of ice rimming the northern oceans, although theories abounded. The foremost cartographer in the world, a German named August Petermann, believed that warm currents sustained a verdant island at the top of the world.
