Soul Searching
Soul Searching - AJ Rose

 

Wow...I am not sure I expected this level of paranormal and ultimate scare factor in this book.  While the sex was light, the relationship development and overall paranormal activities depicted here were not.  This was pretty damn awesome.

 

“A wraith is not a demon, but you must understand, they are dangerous. Wraiths were once human, but their anger has grown to rage, and in the afterlife, they become something else, something less than human. They are consumed by negativity. They feed on it, crave it, and internalise it to use it for their own ends. Most wraiths were wronged in life in some way, and they seek revenge. Usually they are victims of violence, and their sense of injustice tethers them to this world after they’ve passed on. They cannot continue their spiritual journey, so they remain, becoming something other in their misery."

 

This bastard is something else.

 

Overall just the perfect Halloween read, or really anytime you need the hairs on your arm to stand on end.  

 

**Highly Recommended**

Charlotte's Web - E.B. White,Garth Williams,Rosemary Wells

This story about a pig’s perseverance is great. With the help of a couple other animals, especially Charlotte the spider, Wilbur’s life is saved. Even though he was the runt, he had people (and animals) that believed in him. Charlotte’s Web is a very fun and entertaining read for any age.

 

 

This book could be used in many ways in the classroom. It could be used to read as a class, literature circles, or independent reading. The book could cover comprehension, characters, setting, plot, etc.

Enemy Pie - Derek Munson,Tara Calahan King

The main characater in this book becomes best enemies with a new boy in town named Jeremy; when he confronts his dad about it, his dad offers to bake enemy pie as a solution. He expects this pie to be horrible, but it was actually just a way to make him and Jeremy spend time together and become friends. The enemy pie plan ends up working, and the two become good friends.

 

In the classroom, this could be used for learning lessons or morals, such as not judging someone before you get to know them.

Gone for You
Gone for You (Wild Side Book 1) - Riley Hart

What a nice surprise this was...of course...it is Riley Hart so you know it's gonna be good...but this one was even better than I was expecting.

 

Childhood friends to lovers with so much heart and devotion that you can't help but love these men to death.  This story takes a good 50% of the book to kick into any sort of sexual relationship but honestly this worked for them and made you appreciate the relationship they did have on a different level.  Once this got there it was off the charts with sexy times.  

 

Oliver is just one of those people everyone wants and needs in their lives.  The strong supportive friend who always has your back.

 

Matty is just a lost soul and while he loves his Oliver, he also needs to be able to learn to stand on his own.  And he tries and tries.  But it is only in his music where he can truly be himself and the man that Oliver has loved for so long.

 

“There you are.”

“You knew where I was,” he replied, and then, “sorry if I woke you.”

“That’s not what I meant. Earlier, during your shoot you had your walls so fucking high around you, I couldn’t see you. I looked for you, even afterward but you had your mask firmly in place. You do most of the time, don’t you, Matty? You’re always fucking wearing it but not when you play. That’s the only time you’re really you.”

 

While both men are in their late 20's this is almost a coming of age story for Matty as he struggles to find himself.  

 

This book is filled with some very touching, sexy and possessive moments (which are some of my favorite).

 

"If you were mine, I’d burn the fucking world down before I let anyone else touch you.”

 

Phew!  Riley can definitely get the heat going.  

 

This one has very little angst as well which was nice.  Even the little there was was absolutely necessary and showed the maturity needed to make this work long term.

 

Miles is up next and already I am in love with his character (plus there is a sneak peek to his story at the end of this) and hopefully we will get Chance's story eventually too.

Big Al by Andrew Clements
Big Al - Andrew Clements

Big Al by Andrew Clements is a great book about not judging people by their "cover". This is a children's picture book about a big, scary-looking fish named AL who just wants to find a friend. Even though Al appears to be mean, he is actually the nicest fish in the entire ocean. Later on in the book, Al tries to do all these things to "fit in" with the other fish, but nothing ever works. At the end of the book, he finally was able to make bonds with friends because Al saved the other fish from being captured in a net. Overall, this book is a great story for reminding the readers that actions speak louder than words and looks can be deceiving. 

I would use this book in kindergarten through the third grade. I would use this book to implement character education, and how I expect my students to be with their "friends" throughout the school year.
