It’s Been a While

I have been slacking when it comes to writing here. I have been eyeballs deep in books for school. My last two required classes for graduation came with a ton of reading. I have learned that I can catch up on only one class at a time. Both instructors understand this, so I am passing. Midterms are this week, so that means that I am halfway through my final semester. I can’t believe it went that quickly, honestly.

We’re in October which means that we are in breast cancer awareness month. If you are behind, think about getting that mammogram scheduled, and actually go!

I hope to check back in soon. I am a little behind on my reviews, but those should be popping up soon.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was curious about Mrs. Winchester, since I had visited the house in San Jose on a couple of occasions. The stories seemed far-fetched, and after reading this, I understand why.

I didn’t get into this book until after the first third of it. The family tree was dull, and it took hours and many pages to get through. Once we got into the story of Mrs. Winchester herself, and the history of San Jose and Santa Clara, it got interesting.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a cute story about empathizing with others. It teaches children to include everyone and think about how they might be feeling.

It would be a nice book to read to a smaller child.
