From Goodreads: The ultimate secret. The ultimate agent. Nathaniel Cade returns. For 140 years, Nathaniel Cade has been the President’s Vampire, sworn to protect and serve his country. Cade’s existence is the most closely guarded of White House secrets: a superhuman covert agent who is the last line of defense against nightmare scenarios that ordinary citizens only dream of. When a new outbreak of an ancient evil-one that he has seen before- comes to light, Cade and his human handler, Zach Barrows, must track down its source. To “protect and serve” often means settling old scores and confronting new betrayals . . . as only a centuries-old predator can. Received from Library Thing Early Reviewers Program What I Loved: Nathanial Cade is back folks! All of the things I loved from Blood Oath are back in The President’s Vampire: historical perspectives, combining myth with science, very bad guys, shady characters, and good guys who do what they need to in order to fulfill their promises. Blood Oath and The President’s Vampire both contain very interesting characters that really make you get involved in all their actions. This installment was action packed and Christopher Farnsworth did a fantastic job of weaving […]

Are You Tired and Wired by Marcelle Pick
Actual Rating 3.75

What I found helpful: The most helpful ideas in this book were centered around recognizing and handling stress in your life. I was impressed with the science behind the attributes of stress inducing issues with our bodies and health. There were some great tips on handling things from both an emotional and physical standpoint. I could see incorporating some of the smaller tips into your everyday life. There was some great eating strategies with recipes included that looked as if they would be easy to make.

I love Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. It is great to be introduced to the characters and how their friendships were formed. I have to say one of my favorite moments is learning how the 3 kids became friends because there are some things you just share that you cannot help but become friends and Downing Mountain Trolls are one of them. This is one of my favorite series to read and love my annual re-reading of them. If you are one of the few that have not read the books–you really should whether your young or young at heart!
