Review: Rescue Ink with Denise Flaim

Rescue Ink: Tough Guys on a Mission to Keep Our Animals SafeSynopsis:

1,700 pounds of muscle, 80-plus tattoos, one unlikely mission... 

Abusers are losers! That's the rallying cry of Rescue Ink, the unique group of tattooed, muscle-bound motorcyclists who've banded together to rescue helpless, abandoned, and abused animals. Led by Joe Panz, Johnny O, and Big Ant, the guys act on tips from concerned citizens to find endangered animals and persuade the abuser (within the bounds of the law) to either change his hard-hearted ways or surrender the animal to them.

The inspirational story of these guys and their commitment to better animal care, Rescue Ink's combination of heartwarming stories and practical advice will charm everyone who loves animals.
Quick Review:

This is an excellent book full of short stories about how these tough guys from Rescue Ink in New York rescue and find homes home so many animals! I love what these guys stand for and what they do. They are truly an inspiration. I enjoyed the bits of humor thrown into the stories. This book had me laughing and crying. I loved it! Great read. I recommend it to anyone who has a passion for animals.

Rating: 4/5

Review: Austenland by Shannon Hale


Jane Hayes is a seemingly normal young New Yorker, but she has a secret. Her obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, is ruining her love life: no real man can compare. But when a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become realer than she ever could have imagined. 

Decked out in empire-waist gowns, Jane struggles to master Regency etiquette and flirts with gardeners and gentlemen;or maybe even, she suspects, with the actors who are playing them. It's all a game, Jane knows. And yet the longer she stays, the more her insecurities seem to fall away, and the more she wonders: Is she about to kick the Austen obsession for good, or could all her dreams actually culminate in a Mr. Darcy of her own?

Quick Review:

What can I say about this book? I did enjoy it, but I had a hard time getting into it. I had to put it down quite a few times and pick up another book. That being said, once I got about a third of the way through it, I began to enjoy the story. Jane was a fun character to be with. I enjoyed her personality. This was an overall fun book. Just a little slow in the beginning.

Rating: 2.5/5
