 I met Lee French at the AFK I Heart Books event at the beginning of the year. Read about all the books I discovered here. In a world where most print books are $15 – $30, the first book in her “The Greatest Sin” Series was only $8. My favorite color used to be purple and is now blue. Most of her books feature blue in their covers and her Greatest Sin Series features quite a bit of purple. I was intrigued by the colors and the price tag and bought the book. I wasn’t sure if I’d like this book as it was a world-building type fantasy and I typically go for the low-fantasy could almost happen in our world type fantasy. But I fell in love with Chavali, the main character, and have since read every single book Lee French has currently published and am eagerly awaiting more books.

I like the way French weaves fantasy into her story and makes the reader wonder, what is the greatest sin? French has a way with words and phrases that is mesmerizing. Her writing style is elegant and captivating. You can tell she is a professional and knows what she’s doing. She gives Chavali a bite to her words. I love the quick wit Chavali exhibits and the way she talks back without trying to usurp anyone or prove she’s better.

Lee French continues to deliver good writing and great story with the second and third books in The Greatest Sin series. Just like The Fallen, Harbinger was full of great quotes, quippy dialogue, fun and larger than life characters, and a female kick-butt main character who took no nonsense from anyone.

Soon to be published by Lee French is “Al-Khabar”, of which I was honored to receive as a beta read book and will give it another read before posting a five-star review.

Foodie Fridays: Another From my Faves – Sweet Chai of Mine

027018303046__41840_zoom

The best tea I’ve ever had! It’s sweet and flavorful with a Chai aftertaste.

Pros: Best ever!

Cons: Price? Always price. It isn’t the most expensive tea, but it’s not the cheapest either. Well worth any price though (see pros above).

 

Foodie Fridays: Another From my Faves – Alpine Aire Foods: Apples

I am an apples fan! These bad boys are great! My dad had a can from way back when, but they’ve since redesigned their insides and outsides. The original batches of the stuff were better, but this new can is almost as good. The apples are in pieces and great for sprinkling over yogurt or eating plain. They are sweet. I like that they are diced because more of them fit in the can. The price runs just under $30 and this #10 can is worth the spend!

Foodie Fridays: Another From my Faves – Chia Pods Chia Pudding

Vanilla Chia Pod 2 (1)

 

I took my first taste and I wasn’t sure that I liked it. Are there ever any foods where you eat some and you don’t immediately have an opinion? CHIA POD was it for me. So I took another sip/bite and another and what do you know I loved it! It is smooth but has a crunch to it from the chia seeds. It isn’t too sweet, but it has a very unique texture. I call it my “goop.” At only 160 calories per container, it makes a great breakfast, snack, or dessert. It only has 4 ingredients! Chia Seed Gel (Filtered Water, Chia Seed), Coconut Milk, Vanilla Bean Paste. This is a special treat everyone should try and try again to form an opinion on the fascinating “goop” of a texture.

Where did I get it? Costco!
