There is fear on Varavara's face. Her eyes dart sideways. Her left cheek twitches. She shakes her head, claps her hand over her mouth. "Shh," she whispers."It's just your pain speaking. It's not you. Shh."

  1. Is this book historical fiction about Catherine the Great of Russia? I always want to learn something when I read a book, or at least a little.

  6. This one interests me. I want to know what was said to make Varavara freak out a bit. Since I kind of like historical fiction I might have to check this one out.
    Thanks for sharing!

  15. This does sound interesting. I haven't read anything by this author, although I have seen her name all over Facebook! I'll have to try one of her books!

  18. I am intrigued - and have now put the first in this series on my reading list. My 5-year-old recently discovered the cartoon version of Anastasia so we've been, very basically, talking about "real" princesses and using the movie as an example. So I can argue this is research to support my daughter's interest, right?

  19. WOW what a list of books! I keep wanting to join up because I've seen several posts go by and it looks like such a great way to see what others are reading.

    ReplyDelete
  20. That's a good opening!

    ReplyDelete
  21. What a great teaser! Now I want to know what she said and why she's so afraid!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love historical fiction for travel. It's my favourite genre for that purpose. I'm not even sure why as the rest of the time I read other types of fiction.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline.
