Sky1-Foundation Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

 

Title: Sky1-Foundation

Author: William Amerman

Summary:

In a post-apocalyptic world, Nick Burke has been allotted 389 square feet of living space by the government. Disease spreads quickly when people are packed together so tightly. Quarantines have been imposed in an effort to contain the spread of infection.

When a quarantine is imposed on Nick’s Ground, he and his family are trapped. The only way out is to break laws that carry a penalty of death.

Fearing for his life and the safety of his family, Nick joins forces with a local group to move to another Ground. But can he trust his new friends?
Sky1 - Foundation (#1)
My thoughts:

Finally a dystopian for adults! Are you tired of searching for a dystopian geared toward someone other than pre-teens? Well Sky1 is for you. Immediately the reader is plunged into this new world. You instantly become attached to the characters and want to know where their story leads. This book takes place in a world where humans live on different grounds or levels. With each higher level comes more space and in the case of Nick and his family, a higher ground provides safety. I couldn’t put this book down and I bet you won’t be able to either!

My Rating:

4.5!

Can I rant? Yes? Good.

So, I woke up today already feeling rushed. I was supposed to get up early and set out the recycling and be productive before I went grocery shopping before it was time to wait for the deliverers to get here with our new mattress(woo new mattress). I didn’t get up early and I didn’t set the recycling out.

I have my coffee because I can’t function without it, I make the little one breakfast and skip my breakfast…which always sets me up for a day of horrible eating. Gah. We get out the door and decide to check out the local farmers market, which was super neat and I found most of the produce I needed for less than I would’ve paid at walmart. I finish grocery shopping and come home to wait for the mattress which was supposed to be delivered between 3:30 and 5:30. I do this weird thing when I’m waiting for something where I just can’t start anything productive. I just don’t want to get into something then they show up. Not that I can focus on one thing more than a few minutes anyways. So, I sit down by the window  so I can see when they get here(I swear I’m not a creeper!) and work on the book I’ve been reading. I sit and read sit and read sit and read andddd finish my book around 5:30. I figure they could still show up because I know people run late, no big deal. I do some other things I needed to do and by 8 I still haven’t heard anything so I put Kaylee to bed and then I get a phone call from the driver two and a half hours late! Honestly, it’s not even the being late thing that bugs me I just feel like 8 is a little late to be delivering things. He tells me he’s getting ready to deliver but he doesn’t have my frame and do I just want him to drop off the mattress and I can go get the frame tomorrow.  I have a pretty small car so I told him I’d need him to deliver it all together he tells me that’s fine and we will reschedule for Saturday. I was bummed I didn’t get the new bed when I expected but all well. I go about my evening and get into bed around 9:30 and play on the ipad. At TEN O’CLOCK I get a phone call from a number I didn’t know so I didn’t answer. They call 2 more times and I call back and it is the sales rep I bought the mattress off of telling me they can deliver the mattress and frame TONIGHT! Is this not crazy to anyone else?! She said that if I don’t do it tonight they probably won’t be able to deliver for another week or so. So here I am at 11pm waiting for my mattress to be delivered.

I’m glad to get it today and not have to wait but 11 is a little late. Maybe I’m just getting old..it’s probably that. 

Welcome To My Blog!

My husband left for basic training in September 2013 and while I cried my eyes out and ate all the junk food I was using my google-fu to try to find military spouse blogs. But not just any military spouse blog, I wanted one where they were fairly new to the military life. Although the ones who’ve been in the military awhile are great they weren’t really blogging about the things I had questions about. I know I could have asked buttttt I didn’t. Then the new ones I found weren’t active or weren’t in the same branch my hubby was in. So, I decided to make one.

That isn’t my only reason though. I’m currently trying to be healthier and I’d like a place to talk about my struggles and success, more on that later though.

Also I wanted a place to talk about my love of cooking, reading and crafting.

So really I just wanted a place to rant about all the things going on in my life. That’s what a blog is for though right?!
