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

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is a story about a generous boy sharing a cookie with a mouse. By sharing the cookie, the boy started a chain of events that keeps him busy all day. Children find the story humorous and can identify the wants and needs of the mouse. As a teacher, I would have students (lower grades) to create a sequencing map or have students act out each part and determine the placement of each part. For the higher grades, I will use this story to introduce cause and effect, which students can apply to other subjects and real world experiences.

You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost): A Memoir - Felicia Day
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I listened to the audiobook and it was amazing! It was read by Felicia Day and Joss Whedon (foreword), which made it that much better.

I didn't know much about Felicia Day before checking this out from the library. I knew she was a gamer and had seen her on Tabletop, but I didn't know much else. My husband told me not to watch The Guild, because I wouldn't like it. Joke's on him. I immediately started binge-watching it and loved it. It was even funnier after hearing about some of the random things about filming in the book (baby with a power-strip anecdote). 

This is a hilarious book. Day goes through many major events in her life from homeschooling, becoming a violin prodigy, filming The Guild, to her fame afterward. There are some dark places along the way, but I loved how Day used those moments to call out bad things in the world (harassment of women who game) and motivate the reader to create change. 

Well-written, extremely funny. I am now a huge fan of Felicia Day. Great read, I highly recommend getting the audio-book.

If You Give A Pig A Pancake
If You Give a Pig a Pancake - Laura Joffe Numeroff,Felicia Bond

If You Give A Pig A Pancake is one of my FAVORITE stories. I can recite this story without looking at the words! The text is easy to read, silly, and accompanied by beautiful illustrations. There are so many activities that can accompany this title! I used this book to demonstrate a cooking lesson with preschoolers! I allowed them to make their own pancake batter. They made predictions about what would happen when they added specific ingredients. They especially loved enjoying a yummy snack! A sequencing map would be easy to include while covering this text. I think it would be fun for students to write about their favorite pancake toppings or construct a recipe and describe how to cook pancakes.

Historical Romance
Unmasked Heart: A Regency Romance (Regency Romance: Challenge of the Soul Book 1) - Vanessa Riley,Kim Huther,Felicia Murrell

Unmasked Heart by Vanessa Riley is an entertaining historical romance.  Ms. Riley has delivered a well-written book.  The characters are awesome.  Gaia and William's story is loaded with drama, humor and spice and quite a bit of angst.  I enjoyed reading Unmasked Heart and look forward to reading more by Vanessa Riley.  Unmasked Heart is book 1 of the Challenge of the Soul Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

The Holiday Truce - Felicia Rogers

The Holiday Truce by Felicia Rogers
Lena and Frank are riding together from FL to CO. It's near Christmas so the boss didn't want her to pick a married man with kids.
She really tries to get along with him but...he really tries to get along with her.
When they become stranded and not dressed for the weather they find a cabin with cans of food. He takes charge and makes a fire to keep them warm.
Outhouse is another story. They nag at one another and decide to call a truce to get through the ordeal of being lost.
What I like about this is how different the two are but they are thrown together for very long road trip around the holidays.
Love the cabin and only cans of beans to survive on. Outhouse has much traffic.
Because they spend so much time together they talk to one another...
Short but tragic and funny all at the same time.
