From the acclaimed Author of ‘The Butterfly Room’ comes a powerful afterlife drama conveying how great gifts can be hidden in death and how they can bear fruit in our lives if we have the faith to let them unfold.

Somewhere between the mountains and the mist in North India, a widower must reconcile himself to the loss and grief that haunts him after the recent death of his wife.

Unhinged by grief, anger, and guilt, John Perera has set off on a journey, a journey to honour the love of his life and to fulfill the promise he made to her to uncover the truth behind the mysterious death of their son. It is a journey of extraordinary self-discovery that will take him to the extremities of his soul and question all he believes about life, death, and faith.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Bullying is a topic that needs to continue to be discussed, and I’m so happy to see these types of stories being written. This was an interesting mix of high school drama, bullying, and sisterly relationships.

The Dimes are this terrible group where each member tries to become the number 1 position in the group by bullying other students until they drop out of school. How awful! They are a horrible group that is easy to hate. When their sites are set on the Robertson sisters, they find it harder than anticipated.

This is a wonderful book to teach children about table manners! I really enjoyed the fork superhero that leads the children in proper behavior at the table, and how to help clean up!

Forkman has a lot to teach this family about their manners. We learn how to properly load a dishwasher, but also about improper noises to be made while eating and electronic use.

Okay, this book is a beautiful, amazing, stunning journey that you MUST read! I was completely and utterly in love with Addie and her invisible life. I am now a complete V.E. Schwab fan and must go devour all of the other books by her!

Addie LaRue’s deal with the devil reduces her to a fleeting, forgotten memory to every single person she meets. She can’t die, but she can’t leave a mark on the world. I loved reading about her journey as she learns how to live with each stumbling block.

Just think about it, you can’t rent a room because the person will forget that you paid, you can’t start a relationship because you are forgotten the moment you use the restroom, your family doesn’t remember you, and you live forever…

This is a great book for historical fiction readers that enjoy the Tudor time-frame! It has wonderful characters and a story that draws you right in!

Juan is a Spanish Jew, but is hiding his religion by pretending to be a “New Christian”. His journey was filled with exciting situations and some great romance. I loved his character arc, and couldn’t stop thinking about what was happening while I wasn’t reading the story.

I loved this book! If you have a child or know a child, who gets annoyed with a sibling, frustrated with themselves, angry with a parent, or has a variety of other emotions…

Oh wait. That’s every kid. So, every child should have this book!

I Can Handle It provides real advice that is quick to digest and easy to understand for children, but it does so in an adorable and humorous way!

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.

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.

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.
