While I do love this series, this one just didn’t grab me like the others have. It’s needed to keep the series going, and we need to know what is going on with the characters, but the other books in the series were better.
I am asked to review books from time to time. I usually enjoy this. Sometimes, though, the author has a deadline. I really and truly understand this. If I am unsure about being able to hit the deadline, I let the author know before I accept the task. After that, it’s the author or publishing company’s call if they want me to do the review or not.
Recently, I was asked to read a 5 book series with a due date in 3 weeks. I don’t start school again until the day before the due date, so I accepted. 3 weeks is pushing it a little, but I’ll give it a shot.
A week has gone by already, and I haven’t received the material. How do they expect me to get it read and written if they don’t send it? This isn’t the first time this has happened. It’s just the first time with this particular author. It’s hard to meet deadlines if no one else is meeting them.
I picked this book up for bookclub. It’s not my usual type of book, but I figured I’d give it a try. I really enjoyed it. The members of my bookclub who had read it assured me that it would be really funny. While I did find a lot of humor in it, I would not call it a funny book.
I did enjoy Smudge, the pet spider. He didn’t have a speaking part, but he added a lot of levity to the book.
I look forward to reading the other books in this series, eventually. I would definitely recommend the book.
This third book in the series is just as good as the others I have read so far. I love the stories, but this one started out very slow, too. I had to finish it quickly to find out what happened to the characters. I’m looking forward to the next two that are already published and the 6th that comes out in April of 2021.
I heard great things about this book, so I was interested in reading it. I am never sure if I’m going to like the same things about a book that everyone else does, so I take these things with a grain of salt. I loved it almost from the start.
The story was very thought-provoking even though it was definitely fiction. I did figure out the the ending about 3/4 of the way through, but, as always, the adventure is in the journey, even if we do know the ending.
The book kept my attention all the way through. It is one that I will continue to think about for years to come. I definitely recommend this book.
I read the first of this series a while ago and loved it. I picked up the second as part of bookclub. I am still loving the stories and the characters. This started off a little slow, but it was still wonderful. I definitely recommend this series.
I picked this up for bookclub. I was expecting it to be more sci fi than it is. It’s got the science and the fiction, but it’s not exactly what I was expecting.
I laughed my way through it, though. I enjoyed every minute of it. I would definitely recommend this book.
I picked this up in November, but just got around to actually finishing it, just in time for Christmas. It’s a series of cute stories for kids about being thankful. Not one of them was condescending as children’s books sometimes are. I recommend this book for preteen readers.
I loved this little story about Babe Ruth’s beginning. I need to get more books about his life because I realized that I know very little about him.
This story was read to make it seem like Babe Ruth was really dumb, so I need to find out if it was true.
I really enjoyed the story and the fun of it.
The Roxie sponsored this short film. It’s animated, and I loved it! A bridge repairperson had to stop what she was doing to be mansplained to. And things went downhill from there.
If you can get your hands on this, I highly recommend it. I found it on Eventbrite, through The Roxie. It was about $3.
