Project BG3: Week 39 – Like Cling Wrap

Project BG3: Week 39 – Like Cling Wrap

BG3, Project BG3 0

This was kind of a bad week. BG3 had a touch of a cold and what seemed to be a bit of a stomach bug. Not a happy time for anyone. This meant a lot of fussing, crying, vomit, and clinginess. This time around wasn’t as bad as it usually is when she’s sick, but it was still a trying week. Right now, things seem back to normal, except for… Read more »

Book Review: The Devil You Know by Trish Doller

Book Review: The Devil You Know by Trish Doller

Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★

One Line: A surprisingly good read that I devoured in a few hours. In My Opinion: Add to cart! This is actually my first Trish Doller book and I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised. You all know how hard it is for me to get into YA contemporary, and it’s even harder for me to really like a thriller/suspense, but Trish did a great job with this one. Sure,… Read more »

The BGs Review: The Baby-Sitter’s Club Graphix – Kristy’s Great Idea by Raina Telgemeier

Middle Grade Book Reviews 0 ★★★★½

The BGs Review is a feature on the blog where my daughters and I review children’s books. This review includes my thoughts on the book, as suitable for children, as well as opinions and thoughts from my two oldest “Baby Girls” (ages 10 and 4) aka the BGs. One Line: A great way to introduce The Baby-Sitters Club to a new generation. I know of Raina and her work from… Read more »

Book Review: City 1 by Gregg Rosenblum

Book Review: City 1 by Gregg Rosenblum

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★½

One Line: It was nice seeing how this series ends, even if the book itself didn’t have much going on. What I Loved: I really liked getting to know Nick, Kevin, and Cass more. They each have a certain quality that sets them apart from everyone else and it was interesting seeing them handle this bot war. I enjoyed the fledgling romance between Cass and Farryn and I liked seeing… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Rogue by Julie Kagawa

Audiobook Review: Rogue by Julie Kagawa

Audiobook Reviews, Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★

One Line: Just as amazing as the first book. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Julie has done such a great job at mixing dragons seamlessly into the modern world and making it feel believable. She also packed this book with plenty of action and delved even deeper into the inner workings of Talon. I loved it! Also, YAY for more dragons! While I had some difficulty picturing the actual… Read more »

Audiobook Review: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Audiobook Review: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Audiobook Reviews, Young Adult Book Reviews 5 ★★★★

One Line: A standout in the parallel dimension/time travel genre with massive potential. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Time travel or parallel universe storylines are always a bit iffy for me. Sometimes they work. Sometimes they don’t. In this case, it worked. Gray’s idea of a firebird, a device that allows its user to travel through dimensions, was pretty interesting. I liked how she incorporated the physics into it… Read more »

One Line: I loved every minute of this! In My Opinion: Must. Read. Now! Sara Raasch makes one heck of a stunning and captivating debut with Snow Like Ashes. I seriously couldn’t get enough of this book! This book really surprised me. I didn’t expect to love it so much, not for any particular reason, but it’s just that even though I love fantasy, I don’t LOVE love it, you… Read more »
