What Makes Us Beautiful


Today I have a book that questions what makes us beautiful.  I don’t often read YA, but every once in a while I love a good romp through the young adult world, especially when the story is full of suspense and questioning our belief in the way things are meant to be.  I was totally caught up in the fantasy…

A Return to Fantasy in Kid’s Books


Today I have a return to fantasy in kid’s books.  There have been so many stories out this year which are realistic fiction, I was starting to think that publishers had given up on new fantasy offerings.  Well, welcome to Nevermoor, a book that will appeal to fans of Harry Potter with its elements of magic, a contest to weed…

Silly Book for Kids


Do not get this story unless you want a silly book for kids!  Written by an English author, his books are finally making the trek to the US where they just may usher in an era of excessive frivolity.  Badgers posing as lemurs, a never ending song about jam, and the evil mustache are just the tip of the iceberg…

Mystery Wrapped in Magic


The book I am sharing today is a mystery wrapped in magic.  This one sucked me in right away and I was completely drawn into the puzzle of Emily’s disappearance.  The main character Raine is dealing with bullies and issues of growing up, but this book is also steeped in adventure and edge of your seat moments so it isn’t…
