A few of my favorite things: dogs. Cats. Sugar Bears. Feminism (woo!). Alpha Sigma Tau (anchored for life!). Tattoos. Fitness pole dancing. Yummy craft beers. Vermont. Snowboarding. Snowmobiling. Snow. Large bodies of water.

A few of my favorite books: "The Handmaids Tale," "Stargirl," and the "Harry Potter" series.

An awesome quote to live by from Herm Albright: "a positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort."

Anna has always had trouble fitting in... that is until the Goldschmidts move in next door and recruit her as the newest member of their religious cult. Armed with newfound faith and fury, Anna prepares for the End of Days, dismissing her concerned parents as sinners who stand in the way of her path to greatness. Her choices lead to dire - and lethal - consequences. Weird, unexpected and often haunting, this is a book that won't leave your hands until the last page is turned - and which will live with you forever. ~ Reviewed by Jess Hanlon
