Middle Grade Book Review: Jed and the Junkyard War by Steven Bohls – 2.5 stars

Well, I knew the day would come when I was disappointed by a book that I planned to review and wasn’t sure what to say. I have so much respect for authors and the hard work they do to create a piece of literature that it pains me to write a negative review. I considered […]

What’s Up Next? Once a Liar by A.F. Brady

I’ve been cruising through some books lately and I’m totally in my happy place! I thought I’d give you a sneak peak at what I’m going to read next: it’s the April Books for Coffee Book Drop from Bethany Beach Books! This one’s a thriller…quite a departure from the historical and middle grade fiction I’ve […]

Book Review: Just Like Jackie by Lindsey Stoddard

‘Be kind always…for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about!’ – Ian Maclaren That quote came to mind more than once while I was reading Just Like Jackie.

Book Review: A Short History of the Girl Next Door by Jared Reck

Couldn’t wait to share with you what came in my Middle Grade Book Drop box this month! Spencer and I are so excited to read this one: the cover art reminds us of The Fog Diver which has been one of our absolute favorite middle grade reads of all time! We positioned it in the […]

Follow your bliss!

I was lucky enough to receive yet another ARC from The Book Drop and couldn’t wait to share it with you! Look at that amazing turquoise cover with the cut-out! This is one of those books I would buy for the cover color alone! (I’m like that!) It’s called Professor Chandra Follows His Bliss by […]

The Book Drop

As you can tell by my post yesterday about Gwynnie Bee, when I find a brand or service that I particularly love, I’m particularly loyal and especially vocal about it!  As many of you know, there are few things I love as much as reading and surprises…so The Book Drop from Bethany Beach Books has […]
