Tessemae’s All Natural {Review}

I know you may be thinking what the heck? A review for salad dressing? (Disclosure: I was given free product AND I was paid to review it) This doesn't have anything to do with preparedness. It kind of does. Healthy eating, in our house, is considered part of our preparedness plan. We need to be in the best shape possible, not a round shape, but physically fit to be ready for the SHTF. That said,…

Aftermath II: Struggle for Independence Review

You can read my review of Book 1 Aftermath: A Story of Survival over here and I am FINALLY, only a few months late, sharing my thoughts on the 2nd book in the series. Like book 1, this was a great read. I love this genre and I also love supporting new authors. As with most self published authors there will be typos and maybe a few grammatical errors. I don't feel there were so…

Aftermath: A Story of Survival Review

I picked up my iPad to read this on Kindle. I thought oh, I will read a few pages and go to bed. HA! I haven't ready a good SHTF book in awhile. Dare I say I read a chapter or two and never finish it. Sad because Post Apocalyptic and Dystopian are my top 2 favorite genre's. I could not turn my Kindle off. No, it wasn't broken. This book was good! Engaging. The…

Oasis (The Last Humans) A Review

My name is Theo, and I'm a resident of Oasis, the last habitable area on Earth. It's meant to be a paradise, a place where we are all content. Vulgarity, violence, insanity, and other ills are but a distant memory, and even death no longer plagues us. I was once content too, but now I'm different. Now I hear a voice in my head, and she tells me things no imaginary friend should know. Her…

The Survival Savvy Family Review

When I was was given the chance to review The Survival Savvy Family by Julie at Home Ready Home I was super excited. I have read Julie's blog for sometime and recently she has allowed me to ask a ton of questions about her neck of the woods. This book is not your "The world is ending" type of survival book. It is full of practical tips and information that you can apply to everyday…

Persied Collapse Review

This is book 1 in the Perseid Collapse Post Apocalyptic series. You can also read my review of the prequel, The Jakarta Pandemic. I had started to read this and then saw there was a prequel. So, being the OCD'r that I am, I had to read The Jakarta Pandemic first, then came back to The Perseid Collapse. You wouldn't have to do this, but it did help with getting to know the characters so…

The Jakarta Pandemic {book review}

I saw on Facebook awhile back about the author, Steven Konkoly's, book series going on sale on Amazon. I purchased The Perseid Collapse and began to read it right away. A few pages in and it dawned on me, this was actually book 2, well book 1, but there was a prequel. I then bought the prequel, Jakarta Pandemic, and read it first. I have since finished The Perseid Collapse as well and will be…

The Organic Canner Review

The Organic Canner written by Daisy Luther of The Organic Prepper I am a self taught canner. I have always had this perfect little daydream of being in the kitchen of the house my dad grew up in, in Northern Minnesota, with my grandma. Her teaching me all of her little tips on how to can. Alas, that was not to be so I taught myself. The hello YouTube. Part of my preparedness lifestyle is…
