Book Tour Review that I am Involved with.
Ninja Girl - Cookie O'Gorman
Blog Tour Schedule:
http://yaboundbooktours.blogspot.com/2017/03/
*** Ninja Girl by Cookie O'Gorman Genre: YA Contemporary Romance Release Date: March 30th 3017
Summary from Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Snow-Soon Lee kicks ass--literally. She teaches at her family-owned martial arts gym, The Academy, and cares more about training to be the next Bruce Lee than hooking up. In fact, Snow's never even been kissed. But when Girls Night rolls around, Snow decides to prove to her friends (and herself) that she's not just some boring tomboy. Impulsively, she kisses a hot stranger and even manages to escape his two security guards.One stolen kiss…Ash Stryker's senior year sucks. His politician father pulled him out of Chariot High, separating him from his championship-winning soccer team. Now he's stuck at a prissy private school with no friends, no team and no chance of being scouted. On top of that, thanks to the death threats his dad's received, Ash has a security tail aka professional babysitters. When the mystery girl from the movies shows up at his school, rappelling from the rafters, Ash knows one thing: he won't let her get away again.One interesting job proposition…After a seemingly random attack, Ash's mother surprises everyone. She hires Snow to be Ash's personal bodyguard until after the election. But can Snow's kick-ass skills hold up against the rising threats to Ash's family? More importantly, can Ash convince his ninja girl to screw ethics and kiss him again?Opposites attract in this YA romance where a smooth talker meets his match in the tough girl who (literally) sweeps him off his feet. Moral of the story:Sometimes even bad boys need a bodyguard.
 
My Review
I really loved this book it was so freaking fun to read. I am so in love with Snow and Ash's relationship first as friends and then more. I love how kick ass Snow is and how she doesn't need a guy to save her. And I loved Ash so much because he wasn't the type that let the fact that Snow was so kick ass bother him. A lot of guys would be so put out by such a fact, and wouldn't want a relationship with someone like Snow. I did figure out before it was revealed who was behind everything, but that didn't bother me at all. Because I loved but Snow and Ash, as well as their friends. I would definitely read this book again that's for sure. I voluntarily agreed to read this book on my own, and to give my honest opinion on how I felt about it. I did this as part of a book tour, and I really had a lot of fun being a part of the book tour.

Cute cozy
Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder - Joanne Fluke

Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder - Joanne Fluke 

 

*3.5 STARS*

 

Cute Cozy!

I thought this was cute. I liked that the heroine liked herself as she was. She wasn't perfect and she didn't have a husband or kid but she was good doing her.

We'll see what happens now the potential love interest came to town.

I was screaming at her the whole time leading up to the murderer reveal. I don't know how she didn't see that coming from a mile away. But it all worked out in the end (of course).


I'm looking forward to trying the cookie recipes given in the book. I hope they're good.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie - Laura Joffe Numeroff,Felicia Bond

This book is a great string of events starting with “if you give a mouse a cookie…” Each new event leads to another, until the story ends up back where it started. There are more renditions of it, like: If You Give a Moose a Muffin and more.

 

 

In the classroom, this book would work really well for teaching cause and effect.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie - Laura Joffe Numeroff,Felicia Bond

I love how this book keeps the reader wondering what the mouse is going to ask for next all because he wanted a cookie to begin with. It also kind of makes you not want to ever give a mouse a cookie, but who could not resist this cute little mouse character. I would use this book in my classroom for a cause and effect lesson. I would also read the story and have a cookie day as well.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie - Laura Joffe Numeroff,Felicia Bond

Even today, "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" is one of my favorite books. This is the story of a mouse that always asks for something which leads him to ask for more. This book is appropriate for ages K-2 and is Lexile Level AD660L. I have seen other teachers do a cause and effect tree after reading this book, and I would do the same. This book is also great for just enjoyable reading. Great read!
