Beautiful Ellie Claire Journals

Faith and Lettering was probably my favorite of the three journals. I loved the look of the cover, the place to put your pen on the outside, and the room on the inner pages to be creative either in journaling or drawing. The pages contain verses and lettering and other tips for writing creatively. It is so pretty. It's a beautiful hard back with indented letters.

The Great Scare by Gregory James

What if, by trying to save a world that did not need saving, we accidentally destroyed it? Three hundred years after the destruction of the earth’s surface by man’s attempt at playing God, James and Lee, two post-apocalyptic, subterranean librarians, finalize their plans to travel back in time and correct all the mistakes of the past. Just one thing is keeping them from fulfilling their dreams of time-travel redemption—someone or something is stealing the town’s most valuable possessions.
