Second Time Around is Even Better!
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

Read this series 7 years ago.  This time I'm listening on Audible.  The whole fam loves this story, and it was really fun listening to the last couple hours of the first book while in the car yesterday.  I thought my teenagers were busying themselves with something else in the back seat when my 13-year-old said, "Please turn that up, Mom."  Love HP!

Good Night, Baby Animals
Good Night, Baby Animals You've Had a Busy Day: A Treasury of Six Original Stories - Laura Watkins,Karen B. Winnick

Good Night Baby Animals teaches us what an animal does in six different stories. Sleep is important for a baby and baby animals. This is true for hamans as well. This book show use though the baby animals what they do during there day.

They explore and what they need to rest as well when the time is right. The author does a good job doing this and showing children and teaching children that sleep and rest is important to all including animals.

The pictures are colorful. They are done wonderfully. They also can tell the story for young children. Parents should have this for their young children to learn about animals and rest.

Book Review : SKIN BB Easton
Skin - BB Easton

oct 16-21

Because BB Easton had so much fun writing her bestselling, award-winning memoir, 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN, she decided to give each of her four men his own steamy standalone. SKIN is Knight's book—a gritty, taboo, forbidden love story based on true events.

In 1997, Ronald “Knight” McKnight was the meanest, most misunderstood boy at Peach State High School...perhaps on the entire planet. Knight hated everyone, except for me, BB—the perky, quirky punk chick with the locker next to his. 

I, on the other hand, liked everybody except for Knight. I was scared sh*tless of him, actually. All I wanted was to marry Prince Eric-lookalike and king of the Peach State High punk scene, Lance Hightower, and have a million of his babies. 

Unfortunately for me, Knight was even better at getting his way than I was, and once he got under my skin, my life would never be the same.

Book Review : Ive been curious about Knight since reading 44 chapters about 4 men and he's a bit crazy and somehow BB attracts the attention of Knight who is one crazy motherfucker but he has a soft side he only shows to BB they have a kinda crazy friendship turned relationship . BB has a thing for this punk guy Lance hightower who I kinda sensed was gay and that was true but BB was trying to get this guys attention he ends up giving her drugs once in the bathroom which was kinda weird . Her best friend Julliet is dating this fucking asshole who sells drugs and Knight ends up punching him and Tony threatens BB with making her pay him Julliet turns out to be pregnant. Knight and BB have some good moments but then there aren't some good times Knight ends up Killing a guy they break up BB is heartbroken she meets another guy who she tries to hook up with but Knight shows up and they stop seeing each other also but Knight is going into the army she gets her licence and she meets a guy working on cars his name is Harley he is the next book can't wait to read it . 

Quotes :

The next time some motherfucker makes you cry, you don’t say you’re sorry. Do you understand me?” His voice was quiet, but firm. I nodded and blinked rapidly. “You don’t get to be sorry.” I nodded again, looking at his mouth. His eyes were too intense. “Next time, you kick him in the fucking balls.”



Clearly no one had seen this boy smile before, because if they had, they’d be spending the rest of their lives trying to make him do it again.



Pressing his forehead against mine, Knight said, “I love you, Punk.” “I love you, too, Skin.

Book Review : Jar of hearts Jennifer Hiller
Jar of Hearts - Jennifer Hillier

Oct 11-13

This is the story of three best friends: one who was murdered, one who went to prison, and one who's been searching for the truth all these years . . .

When she was sixteen years old, Angela Wong—one of the most popular girls in school—disappeared without a trace. Nobody ever suspected that her best friend, Georgina Shaw, now an executive and rising star at her Seattle pharmaceutical company, was involved in any way. Certainly not Kaiser Brody, who was close with both girls back in high school.

But fourteen years later, Angela Wong's remains are discovered in the woods near Geo's childhood home. And Kaiser—now a detective with Seattle PD—finally learns the truth: Angela was a victim of Calvin James. The same Calvin James who murdered at least three other women.

To the authorities, Calvin is a serial killer. But to Geo, he's something else entirely. Back in high school, Calvin was Geo's first love. Turbulent and often volatile, their relationship bordered on obsession from the moment they met right up until the night Angela was killed.

For fourteen years, Geo knew what happened to Angela and told no one. For fourteen years, she carried the secret of Angela's death until Geo was arrested and sent to prison.

While everyone thinks they finally know the truth, there are dark secrets buried deep. And what happened that fateful night is more complex and more chilling than anyone really knows. Now the obsessive past catches up with the deadly present when new bodies begin to turn up, killed in the exact same manner as Angela Wong.

How far will someone go to bury her secrets and hide her grief? How long can you get away with a lie? How long can you live with it


TRIGGER WARNING FOR RAPE 

Book Review : This book was really good Geo is being sent to Jail for helping with the murder of her best friend and she goes to Jail her roommate raped her it was a rough scene to read but she meets this woman who takes care of the problem after time she goes through routine she is a hairdresser in Jail makes a friend named Kat . the second POV is Kai who is a cop but also a guy who has a thing for Geo and they went to high school together . Calvin escaped from Jail and Kai has been trying to get him since . five years have passed and Geo is getting out of Jail . There is a kinda copy cat murder out there women and children which is super fucked up but they turn out to be Calvin's children Kai is trying to find the guy . we get a flashback to Calvin's and Geo's relationship which was soooo abusive he was a angry rapist murder he raped and killed Angela like oh my fucking god so fucked up . Kai and Geo end up having sex even though this is crazy ass book I did want them to get together . We find out the actual murder of these kids and woman is Geo's son cause Calvin raped her she gave him up for adoption and her son showed up at her home to talk then she finds out he was the killer and calvin shows up and Geo kills both . Geo goes to visit a graveyard of her son and Angela she is pregnant with Kai's baby so through all this shit she's been through she gets to start over.

Quote: 

“You only get one heart", Walter said to his daughter after the second one ended. He seemed sad, but not regretful. " I gave mine to your mother the day I met her. And she still has it.”
