This was such a great children’s story about nature and littering and the impact on our seas!
This is a fictional story about Violet as she finds litter in the water and wants to find out how she can help make things better. I really appreciated the mix of fictionalized story and non-fiction information. It made for great conversation starters as I read this with my kiddos! There were lots of great questions as the story progressed!
I absolutely love dystopian stories, and this one did not let me down! There is fantastic world-building, compelling characters, and an interesting plot!
This dystopian world has highly advanced technology, a bit of magic, and oppressed people. The story follows Fenlee Harper, a teen trying to help her family move up in the world. I don’t want to give away everything, but as the story progresses, there are so many surprising reveals, I couldn’t stop reading!
They put the tiny, red-faced bundle into her arms, and time stopped. She gazed at that puckered little face and whispered, Welcome to the world, baby girl. Little did she know that within weeks, she would become a single mother—not exactly what she had imagined for her daughters and herself, but exactly what needed to happen. This is the story of a single mother, but it’s more than that. Sometimes funny, sometimes reflective, it’s also your story—a story of that peculiar, trying, and wonderful state of motherhood.
In Superwoman: A Funny and Reflective Look at Single Motherhood, popular humor blogger Mona Andrei brings you her sage and snickery insights on being a single mom, with all its gore and glory. Through a series of interviews, you’ll also get a voyeuristic peek into the lives of other single mothers—and don’t we all love that feeling of Thank goodness, I’m not the only one! We’re all superwomen here.
I thought this was a pretty fast-paced story! It really starts off with a bang, and I couldn’t stop reading after that!
I really enjoyed the characters, and the situations. I enjoyed the location of the story in NY. It’s a bit gritty, which made it feel pretty darn real! I thought that the story was well-written, and quite captivating.
My goodness, I just really enjoy Nikki Bryant! She’s such a great main character for this series, and I was so excited to get her back in the second book in this series!
The thing I love so much about cozy mysteries is that I get the murder and investigative aspect, but it’s a bit more light hearted and fun! Lauren Carr knows how to capture that balance perfectly! This plot was so much fun! I loved how the story unfolded and everything that happened along the way!
Two Roads to Paradise is the second book in the Be Careful What You Wish For series, and I was so excited to read it! Lucky for me, I was able to start it as soon as I finished book 1, The Way Out!
This book picks up a few years after the first book ends. I would recommend reading The Way Out before picking this one up, so you aren’t lost. Now that the world has stabilized the rebuilding of the human race, they have to turn their focus to rebuilding everything else. The story follows the characters from the first book as they set out on their individual adventures to help with this task.
This was such a fun story! It’s filled with science fiction, space and time travel, post-apocalyptic situations, and some political commentary!
I really enjoyed the characters, and the situations they were put into. When a space crew heads into space, they hit a black hole and end up back on earth 40 years in the future. Let me tell you…things are VERY different.
Folks in the small town of Pine Grove, Pennsylvania, claim that where Nikki Bryant goes, trouble is not far behind. Her refusal to back down from a challenge has made Nikki Bryant a top investigative journalist.
After years of chasing mysteries around the globe, Nikki Bryant returns home to Pine Grove to take over managing WKPG-TV and reconnects with her first love, Ryan Spaulding, the chief of the state police crime lab.
It doesn’t take long for Nikki and her family to realize that you can’t keep this ace reporter and her boxer dog Elmo behind a desk–especially when a mystery is afoot.
This book is quite lovely. It’s a beautiful, heartwarming story of a young girl navigating through the grief of losing her butterfly.
I really enjoyed that this story features the importance of supporting those who may be grieving. Star realizes that while she was under a dark cloud and sad, others may be feeling that way as well. I liked the message that part of the story provided!
I absolutely love a murder mystery where the MC is suspected of the murder! I enjoy the sleuthing skills that are used to (hopefully) clear their name!
Lucy lives with her aging mother who is suffering from a terminal illness. While Lucy spends her days taking care of her mother, her brother spends his days as a rockstar. When a sinkhole reveals the skeleton of an old band member, Lucy becomes the prime suspect!
This book is a sequel to Finding Ruby Draker, and I would highly recommend you read that one before starting Shadows in the Aftermath. I think it could be read as a stand-alone, but a lot of exciting things happened in the first book, and you won’t want to miss it!
I thought this was such an interesting plot! It is filled with mystery, murder, and secrets! This story is told through Ruby’s perspective, and I really enjoyed the backstories that helped to shape the story. The story is centered in France, and I really enjoyed the location as well!
