You can’t watch television these days without seeing those annoying male enhancement commercials. In the Jungle King Secrets by Paul Adcock, learn how to increase your libido without using those dangerous, toxic enhancements that are in the markets today.

The basic guideline in the book is very simple: eat healthy and exercise. Stay away from processed foods like cookies, soft drinks and other sweets. Eat fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and eggs. Drink raw milk and water. Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol.

Do you know what vitamin is referred as “nature’s Viagra?” Paul Adcock gives you the answer and lists other vitamins that can help you increase your love life. Learn about “energy cultivation (Qi Gong),” and other exercises that helps your stamina and health.

The Jungle King Secrets is heavily researched, but at times the book feels like it’s repeating itself. I think the author could have written this book under one hundred pages without losing any of the information. Overall, I enjoyed reading the book and would recommend it.

Dead Until Dark
BY: Charlaine Harris
COVER DESIGN: Judith Murello

ISBN: 978-0-441-01699-0

Ages: Adult

Reviewed by Billy Burgess

Charlaine Harris has wonderfully crafted the vampire legacy into modern times, where vampires are now legal. Japanese develop a synthetic blood, TrueBlood, making it possible for vampires to live among the living.

Sookie Stackhouse lives with her grandma in a small town called Bons Temp, Louisiana. She works as a waitress at Merlottes, but she’s not like other waitresses. She can read people’s minds. Sookie considers this to be a disability. It’s hard for her to date anyone when she knows everyone’s thoughts. Her life is turned upside down when a dark, handsome vampire named Bill Compton steps inside Merlottes. Bill’s over one hundred years old, and is the first vampire in Bons Temp.

Sookie rescues Bill from the Rattrays, who wanted to drain his blood for drug uses. Unable to read Bill’s thoughts, Sookie starts to fall for the vampire, which causes problems between Sookie and her boss Sam Merlottes. Sam has a crush on her, and is hiding a dark secret. As she gets closer to Bill, there are several deaths, fang-bangers, in the town, and one death hits close to home. The main suspect is Sookie’s womanizing brother, Jason, who’s had a relationships with all of the victims.

Sookie must use her telepathic powers to find the killer before she’s the next victim.

Humor and clever writing highlight this book above other vampire novels. The quirky characters and plot twists keep you interested until the very end.
