A warm great series reminding me of Runaways
Lumberjanes, Vol. 1 - Noelle Stevenson,Grace Ellis,Brooke A. Allen
Lumberjanes Vol. 2 - Noelle Stevenson
Lumberjanes Vol. 3 - Shannon Watters
Lumberjanes Vol. 4: Out Of Time - Noelle Stevenson,Shannon Watters,Grace Ellis,Brooke Allen

The first four volumes is a great warm series. The story is new, fun and mysterious. Noelle Stevenson definitely puts her great story-telling abilities to good use in this series. All characters are cute and fun in a natural way. This reminds me of Nimona also by Noelle. I don't know how to describe it, but the story always move in some peculiar pace that's unpredictable yet fun to read.

 

There is no single one most prominent character in this series. Yet all characters shine beautifully. The last series that accomplish this I have read is Runaways by Brian Vaughan. Unfortunately, like Runaways, this series made a a bad turn when the original storyteller left the team, as the vol.5 and vol.6 are not good at all without Noelle Stevenson.

One Sentence Review – Donkey’s Kite by Liana Melissa Allen #LianaMelissa Allen
Donkey's Kite: A Horse Valley Adventure-Book 2 (Volume 2) - Liana-Melissa Allen,Liana-Melissa Allen

Check out this fun children’s book, Donkey Kite by Liana Melissa Allen.

I reviewed the first book in A Horse Valley Adventure, Three Little Horses and a Big Bully Donkey last Saturday.

 

Donkey's Kite (Horse Valley Adventure #2)

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

 

The Big Bully Donkey found out what it was like when the shoe is on the other foot, but sometimes ‘the hero’ will surprise you…and the message is…keep your mind open and it’s all about teamwork.

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos  4 Stars

 

GOODREADS BLURB

 

The three horses Jack, Max, Lax and their friend Donkey are back!

 

In Horse Valley it is a perfect day to go kite flying. Jack, Max, Lax, and Donkey decide to get creative by putting together their own homemade kites. However, Donkey’s kite doesn’t turn out very good. No matter how hard he tries to get it to fly, it just keeps tumbling to the ground.

 

How will poor Donkey get his kite to fly? Well, a friendly goose named Gusty is delighted to help him out.

 

In this Horse Valley Adventure, Donkey learns not to give up when all seems hopeless. They all learn a lesson about helping others and true friendship.

25 Uses for Boxes of Brownie Mixes
25 Brownie Mix Recipes (Awesome Fast Recipes Anyone Can Make!) - Amy Allen

I don't know what I thought would be in this book, but it basically just takes a brownie mix and then follow the directions and make something with it. Brownie Waffles, make brownie mix according to directions, put a small amount on well-greased waffle iron, tada. 

 

Good for beginners. I may try something from the list, but not certain. It was another of my free finds.

Update - Things that should stay in the closet
The Sugar Queen - Sarah Addison Allen

I couldn't go to sleep last night, and The Sugar Queen was within reach.  Even though I had signed off on it, I needed something to settle my brain for a few minutes.

 

I opened to a random page, read a few lines, and nearly heaved this library book against the wall.

 

P. 126

 

Josey went to her purse on the chaise lounge and took out her checkbook.

 

 

I dislike books that contribute to the dumbing down of our language.

 

Of course, by then I was angry and even more awake, so I skimmed through some more of the book until I finally discovered the big secret.  Oh, give me a fucking break!  The main character, Josey, couldn't figure out that

the woman living [sic] in her closet was a ghost?

(spoiler show)

 

I guess maybe this sort of nonsense appeals to readers, since the author is very popular.  It doesn't appeal to me.  I'm glad I only wasted a half hour on the rest of this book.

I think this one should have been left on the shelf in the closet
The Sugar Queen - Sarah Addison Allen

DNF after about 12 pages. Having someone appear in and then decide to make their home in your secret closet is just beyond the realm of believable. Could it have been made believable? Sure. But it wasn't. I rolled my eyes so often my eye muscles began to cramp.
