Quick Smokejumper Romance
Slow Burn In The Wilderness (Alaska Adve... Slow Burn In The Wilderness (Alaska Adventure Romance) (Volume 7) - Renee Hart

Slow Burn In The Wilderness by Renee Hart is a fairly short book, a great choice for those with limited time for reading.  Ms Hart has given us a well-written short story.  Josie and Trevor's story is loaded with action, suspense, drama and humor.  I enjoyed this smokejumper story and look forward to reading more from Renee Hart.  Slow Burn In The Wilderness is book 7 of the Alaska Adventure Romance Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read a free copy of this book that I received from instafreebie.

Hatchet
Hatchet - Gary Paulsen

This was a book I read in 5th grade and I really enjoyed it. Brian Robeson, the main character, is forced to learn to survive on his own. He gets trapped in the wilderness after he is in a plane crash and must learn to survive with one of the only things he has, a hatchet. This book is great for a suspenseful and engaging read. It would be best suited for 5th-8th grades and has a lexile level of 1020L. I think this would be a great book to introduce character types, such as internal and external and have students compare the main character Brian on an anchor chart or using the board in a class discussion. You could also cover foreshadowing by using this book as well. I remember when I read this book in 5th grade the entire class read it together and I enjoyed that. There are endless amounts of activities and lessons you could plan for your students!

Wilderness Child
Wilderness Child - Ann Major Old hurts, lead to fresh revenge ...

Wilderness Child reads like a maze, at times hard to follow but definitely leaves an impression. Each time, I thought I had it figured out Ms. Major threw in a curveball that left me in doubt. Tad and Jess' history reads like a prime time soap. Betrayal, secrets, twin sisters and a passion that's hard to resist. At the center of this firestorm is some long withheld truths that keeps readers on the edge until the bitter end.

Friday Reads!
All That's Left to Tell: A Novel - Daniel Lowe
A Likely Story - Jenn McKinlay
The Chilbury Ladies' Choir: A Novel - Jennifer Ryan
Death by the Dozen - Jenn McKinlay
Into the Wilderness - Sara Donati

So these are the next batch of books from my  Reading List for the weekend into next week.

 

All That's Left to Tell is a Netgalley find that intrigued me.

 

A Likely Story - is where I left off with the Library Lovers cozy mystery series. 

 

The Chillbury Ladies Choir -  I was gonna wait to get the hard copy but I really want to finish it so I'm going to do that this week.

 

Death by the Dozen - Started and never finished. Same goes for Into the Wilderness - I picked up the latest book which takes place 70 years after the events in this series. While I could probably read it as a standalone, I want all the back story.  So I dug out this book and intend on working my way through it.

 

Nothing exciting planned this weekend. Sunday will be rainy, hopefully washing away the snow. 

 

What are your reading plans?

 

Happy reading! :)

Into the Wilderness By Sara Donati $1.99
Into the Wilderness - Sara Donati

hen Elizabeth Middleton, twenty-nine years old and unmarried, leaves her Aunt Merriweather's comfortable English estate to join her father and brother in the remote mountain village of Paradise on the edge of the New York wilderness, she does so with a strong will and an unwavering purpose: to teach school.

It is December of 1792 when she arrives in a cold climate unlike any she has ever experienced. And she meets a man different from any she has ever encountered--a white man dressed like a Native American, tall and lean and unsettling in his blunt honesty. He is Nathaniel Bonner, also known to the Mohawk people as Between-Two-Lives.

Determined to provide schooling for all the children of the village--white, black, and Native American--Elizabeth soon finds herself at odds with local slave owners. Much to her surprise, she clashes with her own father as well. Financially strapped, Judge Middleton has plans for his daughter--betrothal to local doctor Richard Todd. An alliance with Todd could extract her father from ruin but would call into question the ownership of Hidden Wolf, the mountain where Nathaniel, his father, and a small group of Native Americans live and hunt.

As Judge Middleton brings pressure to bear against his daughter, she is faced with a choice between compliance and deception, a flight into the forest, and a desire that will bend her hard will to compromise and transformation. Elizabeth's ultimate destiny, here in the heart of the wilderness, lies in the odyssey to come: trials of faith and flesh, and passion born amid Nathaniel's own secrets and divided soul.

Interweaving the fate of the remnants of the Mohawk Nation with the destiny of two lovers, Sara Donati's compelling novel creates a complex, profound, passionate portrait of an emerging America.
