Last week we pitted two book covers against one another and asked people to vote for their favorite. We had a lot of interest and a lot of votes! Congratulate our winner and get ready for the next round!
Since it’s well known that I’m a voracious reader, I often have people ask me for book recommendations. Due to this, I’ve decided to start a weekly list of books that I have personally reviewed. Each book has received a minimum 4 star rating from me. If you have read any of the books I’ve listed, please let me know what you thought of them in the comments!
As a single income family I am well acquainted with stretching every dime into a dollar. There are tons of these articles online and I'm glad for them. Every time I've really needed some extra cash those articles helped me wade through the overwhelming amount of crap and get right down to making some actual money.
The story is perfectly complemented by Cassandra Allen's jaunty, simple and playful illustrations, which provide a terrific source of visual clues for pre-readers looking to recognize words. The rhyming and repetition will make this a favorite read-aloud choice for storytime, as children will happily participate in reading the repeated sections, which are so easily and quickly memorized. In addition, there is a ?Fishy Facts? spread at the back of the book that contains a true fact about each animal in the story (including ?A blue whale can eat millions of krill a day!?), which would make for a fantastic introduction to a discussion on the size of sea creatures and the food chain.
How goes it my book besties? Here's a sneak peak into what I'll be reading this week! I've received some e-mails from a few antsy authors wanting to know what's next in my queue so I'm going to bring back the weekly TBR post. Just a reminder, I review books for free and am also the mother of two very small children.... so it may take a while to get a review out. However, as you may already know...when I do review a book I take care to explain any issues I have with the book as well as heap on praise when a book blows me off my feet!
Hello everyone! Welcome to AlliesOpinions BATTLE OF THE BOOK COVER! How does it work? Well, I will put two different covers of the same book or different books and you must judge which book you would most likely pick up based ONLY on the cover! Don’t forget to explain your choice. The winner gets a free book spotlight!
First lines: I'd always thought I'd probably die suddenly, unexpectedly, a car wreck on a foggy morning or a brain aneurysm during a workout. I could never imagine a slow ebb into the other side, a gradual slide into death brought about by a wasting illness or old age. I figured it would be fast.
A sometimes horrifying, sometimes hilarious post-modern, gothic fairy tale for people who don't believe in fairy tales, I Become You is the tale of Sheep, an empathic lab experiment gone bad, desperate to do good and incapable of doing much of anything at all. Join Sheep as it learns to become itself while it becomes us, for better, for worse, and finally, forever.
This prompt comes from the ever resourceful “The Broke and Bookish”. Each week there is a different theme! It’s a fun way for bloggers to connect and readers to get to know us better! It helps the writing community get a little extra promotion for their work as well as give some pretty great intel to readers looking for a new read!
Six years ago my husband and I were lucky enough to be dog-mom and dog-dad to a very special dog named Chevy. From the moment we met her we knew something was very different with her. She was afraid of everything and incredibly anxious. We knew she would need lots of patience and love.
