Rating: 4 out of 5.

A koala and a panda befriending each other and learning how to care for their Earth. It’s a beautiful story with a message that is important not only to children but to everyone.

I really liked how Penelope Panda and Kobi Koala meet each other. There doesn’t seem to be any other family or friends around, and the two stumble across each other. As they walk and become friends, they finally come across a tree that provides some very good advice about how to care for their Earth.

This was a beautiful children’s book that provides a lovely story of friendship, family, and responsibility. Mia and Nattie’s relationship shows a beautiful bond and understanding between a girl and her sheep.

M.C. Plays Hide and Seek by Eva Grayzel

Welcome to the blog tour for M.C. Plays Hide and Seek hosted by iRead Book Tours!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is a book that no one wants to need, and yet, unfortunately, there is a need for it. I am so appreciative that there are authors considering the hard topics as worthy of investing the time to write a book about.

Children are especially hard to help when there is a family member or friend with cancer. Cancer is a difficult disease and one that is so different in so many people. We have, unfortunately, had to help our children understand cancer for two special people in our lives. I didn’t have this book as we lived through both of these loved one’s fights and losses, and I wish I had.

Okay, so sometimes the third book in a series starts to become a bit repetitive or boring for me and my excitement wants…THIS BOOK THOUGH, only got better! The third book in the Annie Collins mystery series was just amazing!

The action starts off so fast, we’re immediately thrown into a wedding in upheaval and an escaped convict determined to ruin Annie and Angel. It was an exciting, thrilling story that I couldn’t put down!

This story was a heartbreaking thriller creating such a wild ride of emotions from start to finish. I found this book a bit hard to read due to some content that I outline in my content warning section. It was, however, an excellent story that you won’t forget about.

The characters created in this story are really well developed. I thought that the author did a wonderful job of creating story arcs and personal growth, making me care about them. I liked that we really got to see different sides of the characters, offering some better insight into their actions.

The Dragon Thief by Zetta Elliott

Rating: 4 out of 5.

What a fun fantasy story for middle-grade readers! I really enjoyed the 🐉dragon 😂. I haven’t read a ton of books with dragons in them, so I really liked this!

There are some great themes within the story that will resonate with many readers. Family is an important element throughout the story. I really enjoyed that the family we meet are close relatives as well as ones further along in the family tree. It’s nice to show that a family can consist of a variety of blood relatives as well as strong friends.

Beauty Among Ruins by J’nell Ciesielski

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This book was absolutely lovely! It’s a clean romance set in historical Scotland. The location of this story was amazing! I felt like I was right there, and I loved it! The descriptions were beautiful and perfect!

I loved that the main character is completely out of her element as she is sent from America to Scotland. I liked seeing her off-balance throughout this. It made her character journey so fulfilling! Her nursing position during the Great War made the historical aspect of this story wonderful. I liked the details and research that clearly went into making this feel so real.

This story, you guys, I was inspired by it! My kids adored it, but I did too! As a parent, I like it when a children’s book can be enjoyable for me to read, but I love it when I actually take something away from it!

Esmeralda Dragon works at the ballet company, running the spotlight for the dancers. Once the dancers go home though, she takes the stage and performs for no one but herself to the whistling of the janitor. When auditions open for the ballet company, the janitor encourages Esmeralda to audition. Everything goes a bit right, then a bit wrong for her, but at each juncture, she chooses to not give up. But, then she does give up, and she has a friend who reminds her not to.

No Pity In Death by Helen Starbuck

Welcome to the blog tour for Annie Collins Mystery Series hosted by iRead Book Tours!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is the second book in the Annie Collins mysteries, and I really enjoyed the continuation of Annie’s story. Annie had some rough situations in the last book, and she is still dealing with the aftermath as we start book 2.

This story focuses on the mystery of DNR patients being killed off at her hospital. I liked that there was still this medical mystery portion of the story, but we also go to invest in a romance plot for Annie. I liked that something that was a spark of romance from book one was delved into more in this story.

This was a really fun mystery! Annie, our main character is one of those people who is a caring, loving person. She’s an operating room nurse, and so I think it’s just in her nature to want to help people. When her friend Libby reaches out to Annie for help about a mystery illness, Annie ends up in a startling mystery!

I really enjoyed the medical side of this story. I get really intrigued about all the details, and in this story, I felt like they were well researched and accurate. I liked the illness as a mystery, but also all the other details within the story that created the twists as the plot progressed!

First of all, how amazing is this cover? I just love how things are woven into her hair, just like the story weaves from one thing to the next. It’s wonderful!

This is a really quick story, so you can sit down, and just completely immerse yourself in it. I loved how the author’s words created this fluid story that entranced me! It’s the type of story that will whisk you away, and you won’t even realize the physical world around you.

I love a good dystopian story, and this book had that plus great characters and a mix of magic that had e totally entranced!

The magical powers that these characters have were exciting, and I loved learning about them. It’s a magical system that was easy to understand, which I always appreciate! The story begins with an accidental use of powers, and it gripped me from the first line!
