Snow White and Rose Red: The Curse of the Huntsman is the first book I have read by Lilly Fang. I really enjoyed this charming novella. It was a quick and easy read. It was well-written with twist and turns. I loved how the story take facets of two different stories to make a retelling of a new and refreshing story. The only problem I had was the ending was a bit of a disappointment. But it was still a great read. I hope that Lilly Fang writes a sequel.
I love reading the Arthur's Adventure Series by Marc Brown to my daughters when they were younger. The story was really cute. A great story to read on Valentine's Day.
I won Foxy in Love by Emma Dodd on a facebook giveaway by Harper Collins Children Books. It was a cute book with great illustrations. A great read for Valentines Day.
Judy Blume was my favorite author when I was younger. So I thought that on her birthday (February 12) I would read Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. This is a cute story of an eleven year old Margaret rushing to grow up. Reading this story I was once again swept away by Judy Blume's talent for capturing the adolescent spirit. This is still one my all time favorite novels.
Welcome to Lily's Room by Barbara Miller is a quick and easy read. The book is really cute with great illustrations. I recommend this book for children 5 and under.
All I Want Is You is the first book I read by E. L. Todd. This is a great set up for the Forever and Ever series. It was a quick and easy read. But I did find it a little overwhelming with so many characters and trying to get how they relate to one another. I really enjoyed this story. It had a good mix of love and family. I would love to read more from this series, but the series has 45 books.
I won Butters Comes Home by Claudette Melanson from a Booklikes giveaway. I love this story. It is a cute, sweet, and heartwarming story about a rabbit named Butters. The story was well written with beautiful illustrations by Rachel Montreuil. I highly recommend this book.
Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 is a great setup for the series. I can't wait to read what happens next.
The Green Ember by S.D. Smith is the first book in the Green Ember series. I love that the main characters are rabbits. The story is about loyalty, courage, bravery, and rabbits with swords. The action brings you in and keeps you until the end. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
I liked that two different worlds of Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) come together. It was a quick and easy read. The artwork is great. Great for any Batman or TMNT fan.
Motive is the first book I read by Jonathan Kellerman. I listened to this book on a long plane ride from Hawaii to Washington DC. At the time I did not know that Motive was the 30th book in the Alex Delaware series. It was a good read. It was a fast paced story with twist and turns. I liked the two main characters Milo and Alex. They did worked well together. The only problems I had was too many characters to follow and I was a little disappointed with the ending.
I have always love stories of Disney Princess. This was a quick and easy read. The stories are cute and the illustrations were awesome. A great read for any Disney fan.
Girl Walks into a Bar by Rachel Dratch was a very funny book. I listened to this book on a long plane ride from Washington DC to Narita Japan. It keep my interest from the beginning but I really love the ending part of the book.
Rediscover Advent is the first book I read by Matthew Kelly. A great read for daily reflection. It helped me focus during the Advent season. A great read.
Finding Peace at Christmas was the first book I read by Tam Chellie. It was a quick read. The story line was interesting and the premise of the short story was unique.
