REVIEW BY MERISSA - Through Her Touch (Mind's Eye #5) by Deborah Camp
Through Her Touch (Mind's Eye #5) - Deborah Camp

Through Her Touch is the fifth book in the Mind's Eye series, and we continue with Levi and Trudy, now happily married. Levi is working through his issues, with help from his psychiatrist and Trudy. Trudy is also working on her self-confidence, which has been lacking. Together, this pair are simply awesome!

 

This was once again an intricate and intriguing novel, full of red herrings and suspense. I will say I was able to guess who the killer was, but I was wrong for a long time. The characters, whether you like them or not, are all fully rounded and three-dimensional. The situations they find themselves in are believable, and it doesn't take much to start feeling for them. I love Levi, but I wish he would get over his jealousy as far as Trudy is concerned, especially when she has made every effort to placate him and prove her love.

 

With no editing or grammatical errors, I was able to lose myself in this story, reading it straight through (with only necessary interruptions) until I reached the conclusion. A magnificent tale and a welcomed addition to the series. Highly recommended by me.

The Curse of the Yelnats Family
Holes - Louis Sachar

Holes is the fictional account of the life of Stanley Yelnats IV. The Yelnats family is cursed because of Stanley’s no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather. His great great grandfather broke a promise to a friend leaving him with a curse that made life hard for future generations of the Yelnats family. The curse leads Stanley to be wrongly charged for a crime he did not commit. The judge gave him two choices, either he could go to jail or go to a camp for wayward boys, Camp Green Lake. Stanley’s choice to go to Camp Green Lake instead of jail leads him on adventures of hole digging, and joy riding. This book would be great during a social studies unit about ancestry. It provides a quirky story for how Stanley’s family functions and would help students piece together stories passed down in their families. The DRA level is 50.

Camp Half-Blood Confidential: Your Real Guide to the Demigod Training Camp - Rick Riordan
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I love the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. This book was just an okay addition to it though. As others have said, it's basically just trying to get more money out of the series. It doesn't really add much. It's just a collection of stories, interviews, and skits. Some are clever, but many of them are kind of dull. 

The overall idea for the book is interesting. It's basically a combination of the original welcome video made by Apollo and an updated collection made by current campers and staff members. Great idea. But the actual result is kind of dumb and boring at times. 

It's also kind of weird listening to as an audiobook. Interviews are kind of confusing in this format. Although I did liked listening to Jesse Bernstein sing the musically sketches. 

Okay read for fans of Percy Jackson, but I wouldn't say it's a must-read. Just a decent companion book for die-hard fans who want to have the complete series.

Camp Crush
Camp Crush - Tammy Andresen

Chloe is fun, effervescent and energetic. She is super excited that she is finally old enough to be a counselor at Camp Winnipeg with her best friend, Millie. She is also enthusiastic that she might catch the eye of equally fun and sociable second year counselor, Alex. The only down-side is Alex's best friend, Drew, who made fun of Chloe's perky attitude all of last year giving her the nick-name of Alka-Seltzer. However, when Chloe arrives at camp it is Drew who greets her warmly and helps her with her bags. Chloe learns that she and Drew will be going to college next to each other this coming fall. Chloe and Drew spend more and more time together, but Chloe may still be hung up on Alex. Chloe sorts out her true feelings for Alex and Drew when she is kissed in the dark, but by the wrong guy! Now Chloe has to start all over again after making things weird with both Alex and Drew.

A cute, sweet and easy young adult romance that is perfect for the summer. The point of view switched between Chloe and Drew giving a great sense of both sides of a budding romance that I often miss. Chloe's character was infectious and I'm sure we all know someone just like her. I enjoyed watching Chloe realize that her initial summer crush may not be the best choice for a relationship and watching her go through the confusion of a first love. Drew's point of view was great to read, since he was equally as confused in romance as Chloe. Through their awkwardness and uncertainty, both Chloe and Drew grow and are able to begin a super sweet romance. I can't wait to read book two, which will be centered around Millie. Overall, an adorable and entertaining young adult romance.

Lonestar's Lady
Lonestar's Lady - Deborah Camp

My reviews are honest & they contain spoilers. For more, follow me:


Deborah Camp’s historical romance Lonestar’s Lady was a surprisingly good read, one that I enjoyed till the end. It had some heart-warming, some funny and definitely sexy moments that kept me throughly entertained. I do believe I’ve become a fan of the author’s writing. :D

Gussie Horton arrives in Pear Orchard Arkansas on a livestock wagon all stinky and dirty and alone in hopes for a better future. After all, she left her no good drunken father, the only family member, to get married. She’s supposed to be the proverbial mail-order bride to a man she’s never met before. But Gussie was desperate for her own life with a loving husband and a family of her own. Most importantly, she was tired of being dragged by her papa from place to place and fending off unwanted attentions from his ‘buddies’ when her papa was unconscious from a day of heavy drinking. So yeah, Gussie wanted out and away as far as possible from that life and this seemed like her only chance.

Gussie didn’t expect a lot, but she’d hoped her would-be groom would at the least be a nice fellow who has his own homestead, an income, and one who doesn’t touch liquor with 10 feet pole. It was very apparent that she was naïve and prone to daydreaming because she presumed too many things, never considering that an exact opposite scenario is a possibility as well. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happens when she arrives on the train station and found nobody waiting for her. After waiting for hours, Gussie finally decides to hitch her own ride with what little she had and go in search of her errant groom. Thankfully she knew Bob Babbitt’s address.
