Glow of the Fireflies will take you on an immersive and wondrous journey. —Alice Reeds, author of Echoes Briony never planned to go back to the place she lost everything. Firefly Valley, nestled deep within the Smoky Mountains, is better kept in her past.

But now her grandmother needs a caretaker, and Briony's dad insists she be the one to help. The moment she returns, she feels a magical connection to the valley, as if it's a part of her somehow. And when she meets a hot guy named Alder who claims he was her childhood friend but now mysteriously keeps his distance, Briony starts piecing together her missing past...and discovers her mother didn't leave to start a new life somewhere. She's trapped in the hidden world within the valley. Now, Briony will do whatever it takes to rescue her, even if it means standing up against dangerously powerful gods. But when saving her mother comes with the ultimate sacrifice–Alder’s death–how can she choose?

Silent Sparks Book Review:

For centuries, the beauty of fireflies has evoked wonder and delight. Yet for most of us, fireflies remain shrouded in mystery: How do fireflies make their light? What are they saying with their flashing? And what do fireflies look for in a mate? In Silent Sparks, noted biologist and firefly expert Sara Lewis dives into the fascinating world of fireflies and reveals the most up-to-date discoveries about these beloved insects. From the meadows of New England and the hills of the Great Smoky Mountains, to the rivers of Japan and mangrove forests of Malaysia, this beautifully illustrated and accessible book uncovers the remarkable, dramatic stories of birth, courtship, romance, sex, deceit, poison, and death among fireflies. The nearly two thousand species of fireflies worldwide have evolved in different ways—and while most mate through the aerial language of blinking lights, not all do. Lewis introduces us to fireflies that don't light up at all, relying on wind-borne perfumes to find mates, and we encounter glow-worm fireflies, whose plump, wingless females never fly. We go behind the scenes to meet inquisitive scientists who have dedicated their lives to understanding fireflies, and we learn about various modern threats including light pollution and habitat destruction. In the last section of the book, Lewis provides a field guide for North American fireflies, enabling us to identify them in our own backyards and neighborhoods. This concise, handy guide includes distinguishing features, habits, and range maps for the most commonly encountered fireflies, as well as a gear list. A passionate exploration of one of the world's most charismatic and admired insects, Silent Sparks will inspire us to reconnect with the natural world.

Fireflies in the Mist Book Review:

Ambitious, subtle and intricately structured, Fireflies spans nearly four decades of East Bengal`s history , from the dawn of nationalism to the restless aftermath of the bloody struggle for an independent Bangladesh. At the heart of this many-centred novel is Deepali Sarkar, a young Hindu attracted to the extreme left wing of the nationalist movement, and Rehan Ahmed, a Muslim radical of Marxist inclinations who introduces her to the life of the rural deprived. Their common political engagement draws them into a quietly doomed love affair. Through their relationship, Hyder explores the growth of tension between Bengal s Hindus and Muslims who had once shared a culture and a history. History, says Hyder, is another name for humanity s inability to learn its lesson. Lit by the flare of Hyder s prose, history is captured in the glow of the firefly s wing, unfolding in the lives of her characters as they try to come to terms with their own and Bengal`s shifting fortunes.

Grave of the Fireflies Book Review:

On its release in 1988, Grave of the Fireflies riveted audiences with its uncompromising drama. Directed by Isao Takahata at Studio Ghibli and based on an autobiographical story by Akiyuki Nosaka, the story of two Japanese children struggling to survive in the dying days of the Second World War unfolds with a gritty realism unprecedented in animation. Grave of the Fireflies has since been hailed as a classic of both anime and war cinema. In 2018, USA Today ranked it the greatest animated film of all time. Yet Ghibli's sombre masterpiece remains little analysed outside Japan, even as its meaning is fiercely contested - Takahata himself lamented that few had grasped his message. In the first book-length study of the film in English, Alex Dudok de Wit explores its themes, visual devices and groundbreaking use of animation, as well as the political context in which it was made. Drawing on untranslated accounts by the film's crew, he also describes its troubled production, which almost spelt disaster for Takahata and his studio.

Fireflies at 3 am Book Review:

About Book: If there is a book that throws light on the quirks, beliefs and vanities of humans in a style that’s refreshingly new, impactful, thought-provoking and then this is it. Fireflies at 3 am. The book gives birth to a new genre of writing, ‘Shoetry’. Where you experience the flow of poetry and the ebb of stories in one book. All in all, every title is short, simple and insightful. Many of them will linger with you, like the taste of the finest single malt whiskey or the first kiss, for a long time to come. About the Author: As a child, Danii was known to cook up stories to save his little ass or to pass his exams. Then he grew up a bit, only in age and size, and went to college. There, he wrote plays, won a few awards and was told to try his luck in advertising. Some kind soul, who had limited knowledge about advertising, told him that this field was all about wearing jeans to work and late-night parties. He needed no further persuasion, and without losing any more time, got into advertising. Over the last 18 years, he got to work on big brands, made some memorable ads, won international recognition for his work, and learned how to manage acid reflux. Life was OK, but he decided to complicate it by writing a book. People nowadays avoid him like the plague lest he ask them to review his work. His children have started studying harder and his wife has taken up baking so that they can escape his nagging requests, every now and then, to read what he’s written. But all said and done, none of that has dampened his spirits. Currently, he is looking forward to selling over a million copies and is busy convincing each of his friends to buy more than 3 copies of the book.

Fireflies Book Review:

"Summers we fly to Chicago to see our grandpa. He lives on the shores of Lake Michigan, a lake that seems as big as the ocean. Evenings we run after flittering fireflies that illuminate the dusk. There are no fireflies at home, Los Angeles, and we’re entranced. We have jars with holes cut in the lids. After a while I set them free. It bothers me to see them trapped. “Fly away, fly away, fly away, little firefly” I sing. Chaz thinks it’s silly to set them free, but I just laugh. These are the best days of my life. We are born together. You come out four minutes ahead of me. You breathe oxygen first. Is it those first breaths that determine our destiny? You are first in life, always. But I am first to die. -Casey" Brilliant Casey Cavanaugh is a poet, a writer and a junkie. All she wants is to overcome her addiction and pursue her dream of becoming a professor of literature. She struggles night and day. Her twin brother Chaz wants to save her. But he's powerless over her demons. As Casey succumbs to her addiction, Chaz faces his own hard choices. Set in contemporary Los Angeles, there's an opoid epidemic sweeping the country, and Casey and Chaz are caught in the maelstrom.
