  1. I hate that song because it always gets stuck in my head! Anne Frank, that's intense! That one gave me chills. Its interesting that Slavery is abolished on the same day that the first slaves came to Virginia. Ironic.

    Check out my new review!

  2. I was noticing that you have The Witches of Santa Anna on your bookshelf. Did you like those? I'm into witches, I wonder if I would enjoy the series.

  3. Hehe, that song is way too catchy!!

    I'm glad you found the facts as interesting as I did. I like to keep my blog light and upbeat but I also think we have to remember our history so we don't relive it.

    I read novellas 1-9 of the Witches of Santa Anna series. I enjoyed reading them but I wouldn't go as far as to say they were fantastic. I think you would like them.

    Here's a link to my review if you want to check it out...



I love hearing from you and will try to respond to comments as much as possible.
