Review: Ralphy the Rabbit: Finds Himself by David Wallace and Lorian Dean

Here is a summary of what the book is about. The story is about a rabbit named Ralphy. He knew he was different from his brothers and sisters. Ralphy couldn't hop very far but the thing that drove him nuts was his ears. Ralphy ears were larger and crooked than a normal rabbit. When kids came into the pet shop they would laugh at him as they pass by him. One day a little girl named Marta noticed Ralphy jumping  around in his cage. From that moment everything changed for Ralphy.

What an incredible story to read to children.

There are some wonderful adventures that teach great moral lessons.

It has a wonderful message about friendship and accepting yourself just the way you are. Also, don't worry about what other people think of you.

I feel this book is geared toward the age range of 6 to preteen.

I believe the message is also saying it's ok to be different.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Review: 3 Willows by Ann Brashares

Here is a summary of what the book is about. Summer is a time to grow

Polly has an idea that she can't stop thinking about, one that involves changing a few things about herself. She's setting her sights on a more glamorous life, but it's going to take all of her focus. At least that way she won't have to watch her friends moving so far ahead.

Jo is spending the summer at her family's beach house, working as a busgirl and bonding with the older, cooler girls  she'll see at high school come September. She didn't count on a brief fling with a cute boy changing her entire summer. Or feeling  embarrassed by her middle school friends. And she didn't count on her family at all...

Ama is not an outdoorsy girl. She wanted to be at an academic camp, doing research in an air-conditioned library, earning A's. Instead her summer scholarship lands her on a wilderness trip full of flirting teenagers, blisters, impossible hiking trails, and a sad lack of hair products. It is a new summer. And a new sisterhood. Come grow with them.

I found this book very interesting. I thought it was apart of The Sisterhood  of the Traveling Pants series but it's not. It's a new sisterhood and new friendships.

What I got out of the storyline is that no matter what your friends are always there for you.

I only hope to have friendships as close as the characters did in this book.

I do plan on reading more books from  this author.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Review: Stealing Time (Servants of Fate Book 1) by Wendy Sparrow

Here is a summary of what the book is about. Father Time's son, Zeit Geist, must sacrifice a mortal's lifetime to the Fates each New Year's Eve. Last year- inexplicably, really-he made an 11:59 substitution. The  Fates are pissed and they're after his mortal Hannah. With the year ending, he ought to figure out why he'd saved her- and why he keeps doing it.

Following  an unlucky year, Hannah Lyons needs a week's holiday in a lodge to unwind. What she gets is near- death experiences and a sexy immortal who can't avoid kissing her, but might have to kill her. After all, even  Zeit can't hold back time indefinitely.

Even though this book is a romance it is a strange one.

We all know that there is no such thing as Father Time or mortals or immortals so I would say this book is more of a fantasy.

I think people who like fantasy books would enjoy this book.

I guess what I am saying is it wasn't my cup of tea. The plot was very interesting and the characters were developed well.

Those that have  a bent toward science fiction and  fantasy would find this a delightful read.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Just a Blog Update

I just wanted to let everyone know that tomorrow morning I will be flying to California to visit my dad. Since the plane ride is 5 hours long I hope to get some sleep. I will finish the book I am reading and will  be posting a review tomorrow sometime.  Oh my gosh I am going to be jet lag for a few days  because of the time difference.

Also the first week of July my husband will be joining me. We are going to have a little vacation and do some things. I am sure I will be posting a lot of pictures to Instagram.  Don't worry I will keep my blog updated while I am on vacation.

On the marriage front  I love being married. It is wonderful. My husband and I will be married for 6 months on June 28th. We got married on December 28, 2016. We are so happy. I love that we take care of each other.

I hope everyone is doing well. I want to say thank you all again for taking the time to look and read my blog.  I really appreciate it.  I know we all have busy lives.

Review: The Post -It Note Affair by Justine Avery

Here is a summary of what the book is about. Emily wants what every woman does: to have it all. Is that too much to ask? Emily really can't complain.  She's married to a wonderful man, her high school sweetheart, who still dotes on her as he did when her first laid eyes on her.

They have a beautiful home together, and they each enjoy successful careers. On the outside looking in, Emily has what any woman would be perfectly happy with.

But it's just not enough. Emily can't help wishing for just a bit more- for that special spark, for that thrill of something new and surprising, for the shivery tingles running down her spine. For real passion- for true romance.

She never expects to find it during the workday and definitely not in the form of a sticky note.

Just one square slip of paper with a few handwritten words, tucked mysteriously into the contents of her purse and dropped right into her small world, marks the first of a slew of sexy surprises Emily couldn't  have anticipated no matter how hard she wished for them.  She's desperately sought after every one of the special moments in store for her, and there's no question that she deserves them.

Even as Emily eagerly anticipates and thoroughly savors all of the excitement and mystery of what may come, she just can't guess the roller coaster of emotions she's soon to experience- or just how much it will change her.

And she may never guess just who- is leading her on the romantic adventure of her dreams. Just when she feels she's lost the life and love she most wants to have, she finds them- in the last place she'd ever think to look.

Wow I loved this book because it reminds you of the important things in life.

This is a very quick story there are only 7 chapters in it.

I found the storyline to be very cute and sweet. I also saw some surprises that I didn't see coming.

I would recommend this book. I believe you all would enjoy it as well.

Happy Reading Everyone!
