Hook Up; A Novel of Fort Bragg

Disclosure; I received a copy of this book from BookPlex in exchange for an honest review. I have received monetary compensation. However, my opinions are 100% my own!

Wow!! This book is amazing!! I am a huge history lover! I love all things learning about the Wars & different things like that! This book was right up my alley! I typically don’t read books like this, as I tend to be drawn more to Romance Novels, but when I read the synopsis of this book, I couldn’t pass it up! This book is set in the 60’s. Vietnam hadn’t gotten really serious yet & the Korean war was over. The men in this book were stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Read More

It was an Army between wars. Korea was a fresh memory for some soldiers and Vietnam was only an insignificant blip on the military radar. It was an Army in which reluctant draftees mixed with aimless volunteers looking for adventure and ways to test or confirm their manhood. In those days and in that Army, “hook-up” was a jump command for paratroopers rather than a romantic liaison.

Hook Up: A Novel of Fort Bragg takes us inside that Army and introduces fascinating characters who are struggling to become paratroopers and survive in a starch-stiff U.S. Army airborne regiment based at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina. Side-by-side in that demanding trek are officers like Lieutenant Sy Margolin, a potential nebbish who instead becomes a strong leader, and enlisted men like Privates Willie Patterson and Scott Breslin, who challenge authority every step of the way to winning their paratrooper wings.

In Hook Up we get a close-up, very personal, and fascinating look at an Army that no longer exists—an Army populated with soldiers who have either learned hard life lessons or are about to learn them in a crucible where failure can land you in the stockade or in the morgue. From the rigors of barracks life to the raucous off-post adventures to the thrilling jump sequences, Hook Up is a fast-paced, thrilling story of military excellence pursued and human innocence lost.

Patches & Buttons by Jennifer Link

Disclosure; I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion! However, all opinions are my own.

This book is adorable! It kept Rosalie’s attention and that’s hard to do! I think this book teaches a lesson in friendship! I think my favorite part of the book was when Patches took the little Stuffed Elephant to Buttons & they started playing! Rosalie kept saying, “Dog. Buh.” While pointing at the dog & the bunny. Michael says that Patches the dog reminds him of our dog, Cleo, because she is one that would become friends with a Bunny! We have had bunnies before & when the little bitty babies would get out of their cages right after birth, Cleo would simply put them in her mouth & bring them to us so we could figure out where they went!
