Bambi Gets Lost
Bambi Gets Lost - Disney Book Club

This book is about one of Disney's most beloved characters, Bambi. In this book, Bambi goes off to play with Thumper the rabbit out in the woods. Bambi's mother warns them not to get off the path or they will get lost. Of course, as all young people or animals do, they do not listen and end up getting lost. They ask a series of other animals how to get back to the path that will lead them home. Finally, they ask a wise old owl how to get back home, and he points them to a lake where the path home runs around. On their way to the lake, they encounter more animals that point them in the right direction. Bambi and Thumper safely make it back home before it gets to dark for them to see. I would use this in lower grades while learning about animals. This could be used to read to the class or them to read themselves. 

 I would put this book for use between K-2nd grade.

Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout (The Dark Elements #2)
Stone Cold Touch - Jennifer L. Armentrout

Well, this book was much better than the first! While this book was pretty predictable I think I enjoyed this book more because I was used to the writing style and pace of this one!

 

Stone Cold Touch starts off two weeks where White Hot Kiss ended off. I’d thought that Roth would show up near the middle/end kind of phase, but he actually came a couple of chapters in!

I had a feeling that he would do the whole “whatever happened between us was just for fun and we’re not really together” act and I knew that someone would’ve done something for him to say that! Of course, I didn’t expect it to be Abbot, because I kind of liked him from White Hot Kiss!

(spoiler show)

 

There was this whole thing of where the Lilin came from, and why they were there. I’d like to say that I was right because

I’d assumed that it WASN’T Layla that was the problem, it had to be something else, otherwise why would there be a cocoon in the underground basement?! And, HOW THE EFF DID LAYLA NOT SEE THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG WITH SAM! I loved Sam and Stacey and now it annoys me because Sam is gone and Stacy is left all alone . . . ugh.

(spoiler show)

 

In White Hot Kiss I didn’t care about Zayne but now I think he’s okay. I mean, I’m still Team Roth, because, uh, Roth. So, yep.

 

And OMG. I have so many thoughts on the ending!

 

So, first off: I knew Bambi had something to do with Layla’s change in power. I knew it. From the second she found out she was able to kiss Zayne and then Zayne’s soul was sucked the time Bambi diffused from her, I knew it was Bambi.

 

Also, I knew it wasn’t Layla that was the Lilin like everyone was thinking. The Warden’s just didn’t put any effort into it because they’re lazy as eff and probably just wanted to get rid of her.

 

That scene where Layla stopped Roth from killing Abbot. You know? I was extremely sad when Abbot just beat Layla up and then treated her so badly after Zayne kissed her and got his soul sucked—legit abusive torture, I’m not even joking—and then, I couldn’t find myself wanting to hate him because I wanted so badly for him to be the father figure in Layla’s life! But, unfortunately, poo hit the fan so no. What happened, happened.

(spoiler show)

 

Overall, just like The Selection, you want your next guilty pleasure read? This is the next book for you to pick up! The Dark Elements series, although mixed in with urban fantasy, it pretty light. It has a fun tone and the writing style was more enjoyable in this book than the first!

 

Thanks for reading my review everyone, and hope you have a great day! Until the next one!

Bambi by Felix Salten
Bambi - Felix Salten

This is my first time reading this book. The Bambi I grew up with was the Disney version.

The book isn't bad at all; it is very well-written and has beautiful illustrations. However, I'm not really sure how I feel about this book. It seems to me that it is very much about growing up and seeing the world is not all sunshine and rainbows.

The reader sees life through Bambi's eyes. When he is young, the world is seen through his innocent eyes. When Bambi is older, and wiser, he sees that life isn't all beautiful as he once thought.

Life is seen through animal eyes and how they view humans - dangerous and without mercy. Some of it for me was hard to read, especially the death scenes. I love animals, have been around them all my life. Animals aren't pets to me; they are family. And I know I could never hunt animals. I could never bring myself to end their life.

Bambi, the book, is a serious work. If you've only ever watched the movie and plan on reading this, it's very different from the movie.

Here is my January progress for the four(ish) reading challenges I'm doing this year. You can see three of them here, and the fourth is my plan to read as many of the source materials for Disney movies as possible -- I have already read about half of them over a lifetime of Disney fandom.

 

From my personal reading challenge, in January I was supposed to read books I had received as gifts. Unfortunately, I only read one book from this category:

 

Fantasy: The Best of the Year 2006 - I received this book as a Christmas present from Pocketmermaid several years ago -- I think it was 2009. The gift note, written on festive Christmas stationery, was still tucked inside. She bought it for me because it had the "sequel" to one of my favorite books, "The Last Unicorn," in it, and also because I was making a bit of an informal study of the short story form at the time, hoping to untangle how to write some of my own. This book took me much longer to read than I thought -- the pages are trade-paperback sized and the text fairly cramped with small margins. I also had to stop for about a week to read a book club book. Glad to finally have it read, but sad that I didn't get more books under my belt for this part of the challenge!

 

From my Into the Forest Reading Challenge, I read

1. A book from the Endicott YA list Ella Enchanted and

2. A book that was made into a favorite movie - Bambi

 

And for this 2015 Reading Challenge I read ...

  1. A Book That Became a Movie - Bambi by Felix Salten
  2. A Book With Nonhuman Characters - Watership Down by Richard Adams
  3. A Mystery or Thriller - Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
  4. A Book with a One-Word Title - Panic by Sharon Draper
  5. A Book of Short Stories - Fantasy: The Best of the Year 2006 by Rich Norton
  6. A Book Based Entirely on Its Cover - The Baby Tree by Sophie Blackall
  7. A Memoir - Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson
  8. A Book Set in High School - Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
  9. A Book Set in Your Home Town - Plover Landing by Marie Zhuikov (Duluth is my "adopted" hometown -- I don't think any books are set in my actual hometown.)

 

For Disney Source Materials, I read

  1. Bambi by Felix Salten (heh, this one is showing up on every list!)
  2. The Sorceror's Apprentice by Goethe and

Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi

 

For February I am reading Love & Marriage books. One of my favorite themes!
