Here are the reviews for the last five books I have read.
1. The Forest Unseen: A Year's Watch in Nature, by David George Haskell
Average Rating: 4.25/5
I said: 4/5 stars, "This book is an incredible reflection on nature. Each chapter/entry focuses on a new ecological concept that is brought up in the author's meditative focus while studying the same area of forest over the course of a year. It is very in-depth and focused on each topic covered."
2. Creative Block: Get Unstuck, Discover New Ideas. Advice & Projects from 50 Successful Artists, by Danielle Krysa
Average Rating: 4.29/5 stars
I said: 5/5 stars, "I really loved this book - the author interviewed fifty artists of varied craft and mediums about their creative processes, included their original artwork, and then each artist can up with an 'unblocking' project to help the reader work on their own creative process. I found it fascinating and incredibly inspiring."
3. Powerful Plant-Based Superfoods: The Best Way to Eat for Maximum Health, Energy, and Weight Loss, by Lauri Boone
Average Rating: 3.67/5
I said: 4/5 stars, "This book was split into sections based on type of foods, and then each superfood in these sections was described. Each superfood also included a recipe. All the superfoods were plant-based and the recipes were all vegan. This is a great resource, and it introduced me to several foods I have not heard of."
4. The Last Animal, by Abby Geni
Average Rating: 3.79/5
I said: 4/5 stars, "Although a few of the short stories in this book did not contain as much as a link to animals and nature as I had hoped, they were all incredibly well-written and intersting. I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of short stories. I can't even pick a favorite because I loved so many of them. I couldn't put this book down."
5. Playing with Books: The Art of Upcycling, Deconstructing, and Reimagining the Book, by Jason Thompson
Average Rating: 3.98-5
I said: 3/5 stars, "This book contained some great information about paper crafts, including techniques and tools to use. It also included some family-friendly craft ideas, as well as information about artists that use books as their medium."
