Wedgieman to the Rescue - Charise Mericle Harper,Bob Shea
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

A very funny picture book that is sure to delight Captain Underpants fans. 

In this second book about Wedgieman, there is an actual villain (Bad Dude), making it much more interesting than the first book in the series. I read the third book ( Wedgieman and the Big Bunny Trouble) first and was a little confused, but the whole wedgie at the end thing makes so much more sense now. 

Very funny, nice illustrations. Overall, a good read.

Friday Reads - June 22, 2018
Wishing Lake (A Finding Home Novel) - Regina Hart
After the Eclipse: A Mother's Murder, a Daughter's Search - Sarah Perry
The Spirit of '76: From Politics to Technology, the Year America Went Rock & Roll (Kindle Single) - David Browne
Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood - Trevor Noah
Cafe Au Lait - Liane Spicer
Welcome to Last Chance - Cathleen Armstrong
If Ever I Would Leave You: A Montana Rescue Prequel - Susan May Warren
Submerged - Dani Pettrey

This week I read Wishing Lake by Regina Hart (my favorite in the Finding Home series...so far), After the Eclipse by Sarah Perry, and The Spirit of '76 by David Browne. I hope to get to reviewing those books over the weekend.

 

Something is screwy with USAFE's e-lending system, so I had to put One in a Million on the backburner until the system is working again.

 

This weekend I want to get Trevor Noah's Born a Crime (borrowed a physical copy from library) and Café Au Lait by Liane Spicer (PRIME lending library borrow) read. I need to write my personal essay and resume for my grad school applications. Transcripts have been ordered (I swear the Air Force loves to make easy, mundane tasks HELLA complicated via the Internet....). Waiting on my mentor/friend for the recommendation letter. Oh man....it's really happening!!!!

 

Next week I want to get to Welcome to Last Chance (Last Chance #1) by Cathleen Armstrong, If Ever I Would Leave You (Montana Rescue #0.5) by Susan May Warren, and Submerged (Alaskan Courage #1) by Dani Petry. The first and last book are Prime lending library reads and it is my hope I can be done with these books and cancel my Prime membership by the end of the month. As if I don't have enough series to keep track of, now I am starting new ones.

 

Happy Reading!

This is a voice-over video with a slideshow of photos, some might seem random. The important thing is the story and I am feeling more like doing voice-overs right now. I was given unsolicited advice on how to change my appearance by photoshopping my face!

 

Storytime of how my mom jumped to my defense and I witnessed her and a 70+-year-old man have a virtual catfight.

The Reckless Rescue (The Explorers #2) by Adrienne Kress
The Reckless Rescue - Adrienne Kress

Huzzah! Another excellent installment in The Explorers series! To say that I've been waiting eagerly for this book is an understatement. When last we left Evie and Sebastian, they had both grown so much as characters. They had struggled with their views of the world being thrown in chaos, come out the other side, and found themselves in situations that they never could have expected. If you missed my review of the first book, I'll quickly tell you that I loved it. I've been so ready for more, for so long.

This book did not disappoint! It starts with a bang as we find our characters on separate, but equally harrowing, journeys. I have to say, the amount of character growth that Adrienne Kress manages to fit into this second installment is admirable. Instead of leaving Sebastian and Evie at the level of that they achieved at the end of the last book, she pushes their limits even further. I loved watching Evie, our brave but still nervous heroine, learn to believe in her abilities. Equally so, watching Sebastian overcome his fear of being in the spotlight made me grin from ear to ear. There are so many lessons to be had in this story, but they never overpower the action and adventure on the pages. In fact, this book is beautifully balanced. I loved it for that.

As for the plot, there's a ton of forward movement in this story. We meet a new member of the Filipendulous Five, and find new clues in the mystery surrounding Evie's missing grandfather. We visit strange new lands, and dive further into the imaginative world that Kress has built. I'll admit, since I wasn't sure how many books will be in this series, I was worried that this story might suffer from middle book syndrome. It did not. It was fun, fast-paced, and full of wonder. As an adult reader, I was enhanted. I can only imagine how much fun the age group this book is aimed at will have!

Long story short, this book is wonderful. It's an excellent second installment to this series and, once again, I can't wait to see what happens next! If you haven't started adventuring with Evie and Sebastian yet, please do! There's a pig in a teeny hat waiting for you, and so much more.

Reading progress update: I've read 57%.
The Reckless Rescue - Adrienne Kress

I can't wait to settle in with this book this weekend and finish it up. It's so sweet, and just as exciting as the first in the series was! I'm a little sad I missed out on reading it before it published, because I so meant to give it all the hype. Best laid plans and all that.
