January Book Report
Here's what I have been reading this past month:
The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan (The Heroes of Olympus #5)
Love how Riordan wraps up this series. All I have to say is that if you have not read any Rick Riordan, then you really should. I am enjoyed reading tales about Greek, Roman, and Egyptian gods. And this fall he will be releasing his first book about the Norse gods, can't wait!
The Princess Curse by Merrie Haskell
In the kingdom of Slyvania offers a wonderful reward to anyone who can break the curse on the princessess that cause them to dance each night to exhaustion. Reveka, the herbalist apprentice is determined to break the curse despite the danger surrounding the princesses and the curse. In doing so she uncovers a mystery that will lead her to the Underworld.
I will admit the first part of the book drags a bit, but once the introduction of characters and background is out of the way this book picks up. The story really starts moving and you will not want to put this one down.
I Kill the Mockingbird by Paul Acampora
Lucy, Elena, and Michael receive their summer reading list, they are excited (mostly Lucy) that To Kill a Mockingbird is on the list. But most of their classmates are less then thrilled about the list. So in an effort to get the whole town talking about To Kill a Mockingbird, the three of them devise a plan. Well the thing about the Internet is that it can take an idea that they thought was just going to occur in their little community, becomes quite the revolution.
I had been hearing quite the buzz about this one, so I had to pick it up when at the library. And I'm so glad I did. This was a nice quick little book. If you enjoy reading books that are about other books this is one for you. I promise it will be a fun read.
The Nesting Place: It Doesn't Have to Be Perfect to Be Beautiful by Myquillyn Smith
So I've read the Nesting Place blog for awhile now. But something about all the information in one place as really triggered my need to redesign some space in my home. (This could be part of the nesting phase of this pregnancy as well, I want all the things CLEAN and cleaned right NOW) I didn't really learn anything I didn't already know. I already decorate for my family and the life we are living right now. I don't care if it is not on trend or the colors I have chosen to paint our walls are bold and not safe colors if we were to ever sell our home. But I don't care, we bought our home to work for us and this book just is helping me reaffirm that I'm on the right track.
