Kindle Children Books Freebie Round Up
Little Squirrel Squish Gets His Christmas Wish - Ross Hammond,Semih Akgul
The Runaway Singing Horse- Children's Picture Book - Debbie Madson
Mariko and the Magic Mirror - Kristi Shimada,Eko Setiawan
Grumpy Dinosaur - Michael Gordon
Dragon's Breath - Michael Gordon
Locks and the Three Bears Rap - Bev Moncrief,Ronny Hardyanto
Brave Benny - Kristen Petersen,Anatasia Teslova
The Christmas Bunny's Wild Adventure - Alma Hammond,Zuzana Svobodova
Arial the Youtuber - Mary Nhin,Jelena Stupar

The best of this bunch are  - Little Squirrel Squish (3.5 stars) about a squirrel who wants to be a reindeer.  The Christmas Bunny (4 stars) about Santa's bunny helper, Brave Benny (3 stars) which is about animals getting ready for winter.  It has the best pictures but I don't understand how a deer pounced joyfully and at times the illustrations were too dark for the word printed over them. 

 

Arial YouTuber is nice because it has extras that would interest a child, including a recipe and how-to guide. (3 Stars)

 

Grumpy Dinosaur and Dragon's Breath (3 star) aren't bad but the lesson is a bit heavy handed.

 

Mariko and the Magic Mirror is a good look at grief and death for children, but feels off because of the use of culture that isn't fully explored or used. (3 stars)

 

The worst is the Singing Horse (.5 star) which uses stereotypical illustrations of Native Americans.  I mean, living in teepees in the desert bad.

GANGSTA GRANNY by David Walliams
Gangsta Granny - David Walliams,Tony Ross
Granny tries to make her life more exciting for her grandson.  Little does he know what he'll be getting involved in. 
 
I howled at this book.  When Ben finds out his grandmother was an international jewel thief, he looks at her with new eyes.  Then when he gets involved in the biggest heist of all I lost it.  Not only his he totally in with the greatest theft of all but poor Ben has raised his parents expectations of wanting to dance ballroom style which is their favorite thing to watch on TV.  Ben and Granny are wild as they plan and execute those plans.  They have no idea who they will meet and who will aid them with their heist.  Then to be almost undone by a nosy neighbor.  The narrator is very prevalent through the story with hints and asides that are as funny as the story.  You will need a hanky at the end, so be prepared.  You also meet Raj who is also in Demon Dentist.  I love this author.  I cannot wait to pick up another of his books and I know exactly to whom to give this book.

The Necromancer's Bride (Gaslamp Gothic #4)
The Necromancer's Bride - Kat Ross
2nd book for Halloween Bingo- New Release
 
Anne Lawrence is a daeva, a magical being, who has upset and almost killed the man she loves, the necromancer Gabriel D'Ange.  Anne is now on a mission to find him and repair the rift that she created.   When Anne does track Gabriel down,  he finds him regrouping the Order of the Rose and planning an elaborate scheme to take down, Jorin Bekker, a particularly evil necromancer.  After finding one another Anne and Gabriel don't want to separate, so Anne finds herself aboard a ship to Brussels where she learns that Bekker is not an easy target to take down.  Bekker can sense magic, so he will know that Anne is close by.  Gabriel plans to separate Bekker at a gala with King Leopold; however, another necromancer, Balthazar has a similar plan to take out Bekker.  When the two plans collide, Gabriel and Balthazar find themselves in a precarious situation that only a daeva can help them with.  
 
The Necromancer's Bride picks up soon after A Bad Breed which should definitely be read first in order to understand just what Anne and Gabriel are as well as their complicated relationship.  I was glad that Anne was able to fully use her powers in this book, from the beginning Anne worked her magic with the weather, showed her skills running, found other creatures and used her elemental power in combat.  From the previous book, it was clear that Gabriel and Anne were meant to be together, but would have a difficult time admitting it to one another.  I think their romance and marriage was handled perfectly, quickly, quietly and sweetly, but without any grand romantic gestures.  I enjoyed watching both Gabriel and Balthazar engage in their quest to rid the world of Jorin Bekker.  The point of view moved back and forth between Gabriel and Balthazar making for a quickly-paced story.   Bekker's character also looped into some real atrocities Belgium's King II was committing in the 1800's, taking over the Congo and enslaving the people there.  The end wrapped up in an amazing battle with Anne center stage.  I love that Anne was able to use her powers to the fullest and that Gabriel kept teasing his tormentors that his wife would not be happy when she arrived. With some evil's extinguished and new alliances in the works, I'd love to see where Anne and Gabriel land next.

Ross Blackthorne likes his cars fast and his women faster. As the third son, he’s accustomed to living his life without the pressure to succeed that his older brothers face. But when he crashes his race car during a public event, his father decides enough is enough. It’s time for Ross to step up and join the family business.
 
Holly Brooks has her hands full running operations at the Blackthorne Distillery in Lexington, Kentucky. The last thing she needs is to babysit an unrepentant playboy who doesn’t have any interest in learning what it takes to make world-class bourbon. Ross only intends to stay for as long as it takes to convince his father he’s better suited to driving fast—but working in close proximity to Holly is more interesting than he expected.
 
Can daredevil Ross convince good girl Holly that he’s worth the risk? Or is their budding relationship doomed to crash and burn?
 
 
 
 

Ross (7 Brides for 7 Blackthornes Book 3)Ross by Lynn Raye Harris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #3, in the 7 Brides For 7 Blackthornes series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyement, and to fully understand the series, I recommend reading this series in order.

Ross is thrown back into the company business after an accident that almost ended in tragedy. He is not happy to be there, until he meets his mentor. She is fiery, sexy, and everything he never knew he needed.

Holly wants nothing to do with a playboy who couldn't remember he already met her! It's a crime that he is even there in the first place. Too much has already happened to her family, and she wants to make the most of her position, so she will teach the unteachable.

This story was a pleasant surprise and not at all what I thought I was going to get. This series is already turning out to be great. I love these characters with the heat that sizzles between them, as well as the banter that just makes me laugh out loud. Overall a good pace and a terrific read.

Ross (7 Brides for 7 Blackthornes #3) by Lynn Raye Harris
Ross - Lynn Raye Harris

 

 

Never afraid to push the boundaries, Ross finds himself to be in over his head when it comes to love. Holly is a woman with business on the brain. She hasn't met a rule that she won't follow. Until bad boy Ross has her rethinking her stand on risking her heart. Harris sprinkles a hint of spice into an up close and personal romance.
