Poetry for Young People: Maya Angelou by Maya Angelou, Edwin Graves Wilson (Editor), Jerome Lagarrigue (Illustrator)

Poetry has always been an abstract concept for me. I am too literal for it I think. It’s difficult for me to enjoy because of that. I did enjoy this short book of poems even though I wasn’t able to really comprehend most of them. I figured if I start small, ie in the children’s […]

What Are the Three Branches of the Government?: And Other Questions About the U.S. Constitution by Benjamin Richmond

What Are the Three Branches of the Government?: And Other Questions About the U.S. Constitution by Benjamin Richmond

I learned so much for this book. Did you know that our constitution is the shortest of all that were written?  And did you know that there is no set number of justices for the supreme court written in the constitution so it has changed over time? And did you know the US existed before […]

Glitch by Hugh Howey

Glitch by Hugh Howey

This was a super short yet cool read. And although it was pretty short I enjoyed the open-endedness of it.  The struggle that the scientists had with shutting him down or allowing him to evolve and maybe/possibly revolting was clear and concise in this book.  Is it a Glitch or something more?

This one was a quick, cute read.  Bad boy meets popular girl, kisses ensue and they go from fake relationship to real relationship. Except…..Kyle isn’t really a bad boy. He was shy, and super awkward when it came to females.  And while he did excel […]

Shroud of Lies (Brewer Brothers #3) by Nancy Straight

Shroud of Lies (Brewer Brothers #3) by Nancy Straight

Okay, the last half of the book really picked up for me.  It was slow going there for a minute in the first half of the book. It almost seems like the author switched up the whole story half way through.  The difference in the writing is very noticeable. I remember really liking the first […]

Six of Crows (Six of Crows #1) by Leigh Bardugo

Six of Crows (Six of Crows #1) by Leigh Bardugo

Favorite Quotes: What could be better than revenge? “There’s nothing else I want.” “I can make you a drüskelle again.”    “Are you a magician, then? A wej sprite who grants wishes? I’m superstitious, not stupid.” “You can be both, you know, but that’s hardly the point.” He wasn’t much younger than Kaz, but somehow […]
