Ms. Harris' Overview on The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

 The Giving Tree is a book about a young boy and his life with a giving tree. This book would be great for students to learn about sharing and being thoughtful of others. The Giving Tree is placed at a 2.6 reading level (2nd grade, 6th month). A spectacular activity for this book would to have the students participate as the giving tree. The teachers could use this activity for as long as they would like by rewarding the students when they see them sharing and/or being considerate. The teacher could tell the students that they are being the giving tree and allow the students to read the book in front of the class to promote literacy and being generous.

Review ~ Erotica
The Silver Chain (Unbreakable Trilogy, Book 1) - Primula Bond

half a nibble ~ .5

DNF @4%

 

Book source ~ NetGalley

 

The narrator, a woman of 20, dumps her boyfriend and leaves her small town for the big city of London. She wants to be a photographer and that’s not going to happen back in Hicksville with Billy Bob. Or whatever the equivalent is in Britain. Her thoughts ramble on in such a pretentious and annoying fashion that I had to give up or go insane. For a 20-yr-old she sure sounds like a 50-yr-old. In any case, I tried to continue but when I got to the part where she meets the creepy guy in a dark alley and her thoughts take 5 million years to describe how hot and interesting he is (but never once thinking he might be a rapist or serial killer or maybe she did and I missed it in her multi-page rambling drivel) and then she says his stubble is frustrated and his cheekbones are snow-piste. Wtf?! Now she’s the really creepy one. Seriously? I was out of there. Nope. Good-bye. I kill them both in my head. The end.

 

PS: There are probably people who eat this purple prose shit up. I am not one of them. As you can probably tell.

Review: The Afterward by E.K. Johnston
The Afterward - E.K. Johnston

It has been a year since the mysterious godsgem cured Cadrium’s king and ushered in what promised to be a new golden age. The heroes who brought the gem home are renowned in story and song, but for two fellows on the quest, peace and prosperity do not come easily.

Apprentice Knight Kalanthe Ironheart wasn't meant for heroism this early in life, and while she has no intention of giving up the notoriety she has earned, her reputation does not pay her bills. With time running out, Kalanthe may be forced to betray not her kingdom or her friends, but her own heart as she seeks a stable future for herself and those she loves.

Olsa Rhetsdaughter was never meant for heroism at all. Beggar, pick pocket, thief, she lived hand to mouth on the city streets until fortune--or fate--pulled her into Kalanthe's orbit. And now she's quite reluctant to leave it. Even more alarmingly, her fame has made her recognizable, which makes her profession difficult, and a choice between poverty and the noose isn't much of a choice at all.

Both girls think their paths are laid out, but the godsgem isn't quite done with them and that new golden age isn’t a sure thing yet.

In a tale both sweepingly epic and intensely personal, Kalanthe and Olsa fight to maintain their newfound independence and to find their way back to each other.

 

 

*I received a free copy from the publisher via Bookish First and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*

 

 

3.5★

 

 

When I saw this on Bookish First and read the excerpt, I just knew it was something I would enjoy. Ans I was right... for the most part. Don't get me wrong I really liked this book and there was only one thing i disliked about it.

But we get to that in a minute, first the things I really enjoyed...... The world building was great and I really enjoyed it, it was well written and not over or underdone. It was a nice balance. 

The cast of characters, judging from the cover I thought we would have gotten more than we did. But that was okay. We get the main couple and a few side characters but that are equally important to the story.

The romance was also something I enjoyed. They balanced each other out so nicely and it was so, so much fun to read. It did say a romantic high fantasy but I would say it is more romance novel set in a fantasy world. As we definitely get more romance/relationship than other fantasy stuff. But that was A OKAY with me. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

That all being said, the one part I did not enjoy as much was eh layout/ structure of the book. It was all over a before and after alternating chapters , One before next after and that made it a bit hard to follow at times and timeline a bit wacky for me . But overall, I enjoyed this book.

I rate it 3.5★ and would have rated it higher if not for the back and forth with the before and after and it be easier to follow.
