Kenny Duane Harris read the Light in the Attic
Light in the Attic - Shel Silverstein

 

 

This book of poems by the late author Shel Silverstein contains crude illustrations by the writer himself but the humorous text and the easy reading was compelling enough to cater to my then 6-year-year old daughter's taste.

 

She had asked me to read her certain poems and I recall her smile lighting up like a Christmas tree each time. I read the entire book to her once, and afterwards we would reread certain pages from the book.

 

Silverstein's funny imaginary world is unpredictable. You will never know where the next laugh or smirk will come from. My daughter also learned some previously unknown words from this book. At 8 years-old today, I credit some of her vocabulary acquisition from this book.

 

The Light in the Attic will always be a memory for my daughter. I even believe when she gets older, she will pull this book out and continue to reread her many favorite passages. 

 

Some of the illustrations is borderline nude considering the absence of pants or shirts from the hilarious characters, but the stories are mostly worthwhile, funny, and some even educational like the "Homework Machine" or "The guy who wore many Hats". 

 

Very fine book to introduce to children and imaginary worlds with no pressure to read it all in one sitting. I highly recommend this book of silly poems to parents and educators.

Poison and Prejudice by Chelsea Field
Poison and Prejudice (An Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mystery) (Volume 4) - Chelsea Field

Izzy is working for a celebrity client and when she finds a dead body in the trunk of a car things get complicated. The cops ask her to keep the body in the trunk, and act like it never happened. While also continuing her job, this gets even more crazy of Izzy. 

 

Conner isn't happy with Izzy working this case, but he knows that he can't stop her, so he and his sister offer to help her out with it. But that makes it a little more dangerous as well. 

 

This book was another great addition to this series. I adored Izzy and Conner together, and I really enjoyed the plot line as well. I'm wondering if Izzy's neighbor is going to figure out what she really does for a living, and I can't wait for more in this series.

Eat, pray, Die by Chelsea Field
Eat, Pray, Die (An Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mystery, #1) - Chelsea Field

Izzy has been in L.A. training for a secret job as a poison tester for almost a year now. She needs a lot of money quickly to pay of the loan shark her ex-husband stuck her with. 
But with her first assignment things get sticky when she has to find out who is trying to murder a client. Her new boss is also very attractive, and she doesn't know weather he is being serious about them getting together or not, and she would rather just work on trying to stay alive. 

This book was a hilarious good read. It starts off funny, and ends that way as well. I loved the main characters, and the plot line as well. I can't wait to find out more, and what will happen next!

Review:

 

"The Heirs" by Susan Rieger

 

My Thoughts....

 

What a story that tell of the well to do family [the heirs of Rupert Falkes] and oh my what is found out after this patriarch passes.  I thought this novel was well written with such a incredible character development that will certainly keep your attention to the end. I liked how this author tell of the wife Eleanor who was Rupert's wife and their five sons [ Will, Sam, Tom, Jack and Harry] who were Princeton educated and so successful and all the grands are girls. What happens when a letter arrives with a women saying that she had two sons by Rupert and wanted them to share in the inheritance?  As Rupert's past is questioned and his secrets surface that simply smears his families reputation what will happen?  How will the family members treat this information?  In the end  as the mystery comes out was there any truth to any of this?

 

The author gives the reader quite a good read of family and the lives it touches as it goes through 'marriage, parenthood, fidelity, infidelity, Eleanor's past, even giving the reader some incredible dry wit' along with some surprises.  In the end the reader gets a good  page turner read  of a wonderful saga that is even juicy, entertaining, somewhat humorous times.  

 

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. So exciting!
