  There is something rather charming about trekking in Nepal during the monsoons. Fall might be the most popular season, and it also gets a lot of footfall, but there are a number of treks that are great to trek during the monsoon season. In Europe’s Shadow is the story of an ideological and geographic frontier—and the book you must read in order to truly understand the crisis Europe faces, from Russia and from within. Praise for In Europe’s Shadow “[A] haunting yet ultimately optimistic examination of the human condition as found in Romania.

The Sensational Night Shadow Story Book Series. Series Synopsis: It’s in Seattle, Washington and things aren’t the way they used to be. Technology has been upgraded, robots have been created, people have gotten animal limbs from surgery, and worst of all, supervillains are on the rise. I gave Monsoon Mansions 3 stars because, although it was well written, I struggled to get through the 1st part. It just didn't hold my attention. The 2nd part was more interesting. The highlight of the whole book was when, toward the end, the author describes her mother in an essay. That was beautifully written!
