Fate of the Furious

With Dom and Letty married, Brian and Mia retired and the rest of the crew exonerated, the globe-trotting team has found some semblance of a normal life. They soon face an unexpected challenge when a mysterious woman named Cipher forces Dom to betray them all. Now, they must unite to bring home the man who made them a family and stop Cipher from unleashing chaos. (Summary from Goodreads)

I enjoyed this movie.  The movie really wasn't much different than the previous Fast and Furious movies but it was action packed. Check our Catalog.

Behind Closed Doors
Jack and Grace look to be the perfect married couple.  Or is it the perfect lie?  A suspenseful story line that keeps you engaged in the story and what is to come.  I enjoyed this book and definitely would recommend it.

Off the Grid

Off the Grid by C.J. Box

I enjoyed this book like all the other C.J. Box books I have read.  They read quick and have a fast paced plot.  I enjoyed how the author allowed the reader to get to know Nate Romanowski more in this book.  The book starts with Nate being off the grid, healing from wounds and trying deal with past crimes.  He is found by a small team of elite special operators who offer to wipe his criminal record clean for his help in dealing with a domestic terror cell in Wyoming's Red Desert.  Joe Pickett also ends up in the Red Desert on a special operation given to him by Wyoming's governor.  I would recommend this book.

The Rift Uprising

The Rift Uprising
The story is about Ryn Whittaker who is a Citadel: an elite, enhanced soldier specially chosen to guard a Rift, a mysterious and dangerous portal to alternate Earths scientists cannot control or close. She was trained from the age of fourteen, and can run faster, jump farther, and fight better than a Navy SEAL.
 
After encountering another human from a different Earth, she begins to question what her and the other citadels real purpose is.  This questioning leads to some knowledge she needs to know but also changes many realities for her.  I look forward to the following books in this trilogy.

No Better Friend

No Better Friend

The book is about "A Man, A Dog, and Their Incredible True Story of Friendship and Survival in WWII." The smarts and instincts of the dog, Judy, are amazing given the circumstances she was in. If you enjoy WWII books and/or dog stories, this is a book worth reading. The book is well written and is a quick read.

WWII History (Magazine)

Various Authors
WWII History Magazine

I find these magazines interesting for learning about topics that are not always covered in WWII books. Sometimes they are about one particular ship, tank, battle etc. The magazine also reviews WWII related video games which I find interesting also. I would recommend these magazines if you enjoy reading about WWII history.

Patterns in Nature: Why the Natural World Looks the Way It Does

Patterns in Nature: Why the Natural World Looks the Way It Does

 

It was interesting to think how the diversity and complexity of nature could be thought of as similar patterns.  After reading a couple chapters I felt I was getting more out of looking at the beautiful pictures showing the patterns.  I would recommend this book for the pictures alone.

Silent Chase: Submarines of the U.S. Navy

Silent Chase

I found this book interesting and was written well. It gave enough information about the subs but not an overload of technical jargon. There were a lot of pictures to see different parts of the submarine. If you are interested in submarines or military this is a good book.

The World's Great Tanks

The World's Great Tanks

From 1916 to the Present Day

 

This book gives a good history of the tank and the configurations of various tanks from the very beginning of the tank to present day. The book is broken apart by WWI, between WWI and WWII, WWII and after WWII. It also describes various modifications different countries did to the basic tank design. I found it interesting that the term tank came from British code name for it (referring to a tank that would hold liquids). This book made me realize that the tank really hasn't been around in the world for very long and how quickly it has developed since 1916.
