The Chocolate Touch - Patrick Skene Catling,Margot Apple

I read this tale with my daughter as part of her school assignment. We had fun analyzing each chapter and predicting the outcome. While the story is fairly simple and predictable, it's a fun twist on the Midas fable. Young John Midas learns quickly that too much of a good thing can be bad. Once the lesson is learned, everything is righted.

The Chocolate Touch
The Chocolate Touch - Patrick Skene Catling,Margot Apple

This book is about a boy named John Midas who would eat nothing but chocolate all the time. Then one day, John finds a strange coin on the sidewalk and uses it to buy a box of chocolate at a mysterious new candy store. Suddenly, everything his lips touch turns to chocolate! It is a delightful story. It was actually first published in 1952. We could talk about the theme that too much of a good thing can be bad. Maybe we could do a fun thing and have chocolate goodies in class.  If money and location were not issues, we could take a trip to a candy store and let the kids get some candy. It has a 4.4 reading level.

March's Reads
This Shattered World - Amie Kaufman,Meagan Spooner
The Chocolate Kiss - Laura Florand
The Star-Touched Queen - Roshani Chokshi
The Chocolate Touch - Laura Florand
Lake of Dreams - Linda Howard
Shallow Graves - Kali Wallace
Tell the Wind and Fire - Sarah Rees Brennan

I only read about seven books, so not as great a month as I wished it could be.

Thing is that besides my elderly dog moods and the fact that I've passed the last week sick, I haven't had a lot of patience to read.

However I did read an amazing book, The Star Touched Queen, which I think will be favourite book for this year. In fact thanks to it, I have been in a terrible book slump: nothing compares to it.

I did continue reading some series, like the second volume in the Starbound series and two volumes in the Amour Et Chocolat by Laura Florand.

 

Five Star RatingThe Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi (Fantasy) #Arc

 

Four and a Half rating-

 

Four Star Rating

 

Three and a Half Star Rating:

 

This Shattered World ( Starbound#2), Amy Kauffman and Meagan Spooner; (Ya Romance/ Sci-Fi)

 

The Chocolate Kiss- Florand, Laura ( Contemporary Romance/Retellings)

 

Three Stars:

 

Two and a Half Star Ratings:

 

. The Chocolate Touch by Laura Florand ( contemporary /Drama)

 

.Shallow Graves by Kali Wallace ( urban fantasy/Ya)

 

Tell the Wind And The fire by Sarah Rees Brennan ( Fantasy/ Retellings) #Arc

 

DNF

Lake of Dreams by Linda Howard ( novella/ paranormal romance) #Arc

 

Then there's the ones that I should have finished by now, but unfortunately for one reason or another I'm just finding them boring and dull. Honestly, I don't even know how I haven't DNF them by now.

 

#Currently Reading-

 

Their Fractured Light ( Starbound #3)- So far I'm not finding this to be on the same level as the first two books.

Gabriel and the Swallows by Esther Dalseno, another book with a great concept, but each time I stop reading it, less is the wish to pick it back up again.

The List Thingy: TBR Week 35
The Shadow Master - Craig Cormick
The Chocolate Touch - Laura Florand
Doing It for Love - Cassie Mae
Court of Fives - Kate Elliott

I couldn't make up my mind yesterday evening on what I wanted to read... so I only got around to doing my list this morning.

Here we go:

 

The Shadow Master - Craig Cormick  - gonna finish it this week, hopefully

The Chocolate Touch - Laura Florand  - my kindle-unlimited read. I shall audiobook it...

Doing It for Love - Cassie Mae  - ARC of the week

Court of Fives - Kate Elliott  - I am looking forward to Elliott's new series!! One of my most anticipated released in 2015 *wish me luck!*

 

To be honest I think I am being quite brave to try to read all of them this week- as I am ridiculously busy. But I think I'll manage an hour here and there during the week, and then there is the reading time while hanging on airports ect - so doable :D

 

What are you planning to read this week?

I'm right now reading the last book from my last reading pile, the amazing "Everblaze" by Shannon Messenger, so it's time to share with you the books on my next reading pile. I picked some big books to get some space on my TBR shelf quickly and some smaller books I should be able to read in a short amount of time, this combination appealed to me this time.

 

As always the books are a mix of different genres and section. Romances, Urban Fantasy, some contemporary stories and a bit of fantasy make up most of the books, throw in a retelling and I'm one happy reader. Three of the books are stand-alone novels, the others belong to series, once again a nice mix.

 

The books
Wild Heat - Lucy Monroe
Murder of Crows - Anne Bishop
No more confessions - Louise Rozett
The fill-in boyfriend - Kasie West
Rook - Sharon Cameron
Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe - Benjamin Alire Saenz
The Three - Sarah Lotz
The Queen of the Tearling - Erika Johansen
The Chocolate Touch - Laura Florand

 

Of course I also plan to continue with listening to audiobooks, I'm nearly finished with "Hero" by Samantha Young (mixed feelings) and should be finished with "Magonia" (fantastic) in a few days. Next I plan to listen to "The girl on the train" and "Emmy & Oliver".

 

Happy Reading!
