Mennyms Alive, Mennyms #5 by Sylvia Waugh
Mennyms Alive - Sylvia Waugh

The previous two books varied in quality, but shared a general "bummer" feeling. The Mennyms had faced the prospect of annihilation and had taken it with dignity, if incredulously.  

What happened next was their discovery by humans, but only as some beautifully crafted rag-dolls. The heirs to the house the Mennyms had lived in for so many decades were a little put-out by inheriting a house fully furnished and packed to the rafters with things.

As a side-note I would have been thrilled, but most people are not me.

Anyway, a kind-hearted antiques dealer and doll-lover adopts the Mennyms and creates a space for them in the unused apartment above her shop. Then without even the help of an old silk hat, the Mennyms come back to life and must plan out their next move.

A logical end to the series, but somehow unsatisfying.

Burning Alive - Shannon K. Butcher

Book one in the Sentinels was good. I loved the adventure, the characters were strong and carried the plot well. The conflict was big and dramatic, definitely series in the making good, and the sub characters pulled the reader into wanting to know more about the Sentinels and their women. Drake has been fighting the war against the demons for centuries with no hope of peace of any kind coming his way. He feels his time is slipping away with each leaf that falls but isn’t willing to stop fighting until the very end. When he sees Helen across a diner with fear clouding her eyes he is drawn in, but when he touches her and his decades-long pain ends, he knows he will never let her go and will fight to keep her by his side. She has a crippling fear of fire and of burning alive. She has seen herself burn alive in her dreams her whole life and one man stands by and watches as she dies, smiling. When she finally sees him across the diner, she is frozen in fear, but can’t explain why she is so drawn to the man who is going to stand by and watch her die. When demons attack and she is thrust into a world she didn’t know existed, her life will never be the same again. And Drake is going to make sure she has no choice about the matter. Their story was great. Loved it and will read more in this series.

[Claire Douglas] Last Seen Alive (Paperb... [Claire Douglas] Last Seen Alive (Paperback)【2017】by Claire Douglas (Author) [1837] - Claire Douglas

Three and a half rating.
A dodgy house swap, slightly problematic marriage, strange goings on and plenty of twists and turns along the way. Someone has got it in for Libby and Jaime, but who and why? This pair are meant to be intelligent but are so naive. It’s as if they shared the same one brain cell the way they carried on most of the time! There’s a lot of nasty, selfish characters in this book and only the dog is truly likeable. The ending comes as a bit of an anticlimax. There are some edge of your seat moments, it’s fast moving and there are some great descriptions of Bath, Cornwall and Thailand. I did like the writing style and the cover.

Two Truths and a Lie: It's Alive!
Two Truths and a Lie: It's Alive! - Ammi-Joan Paquette,Laurie Ann Thompson,Lisa K. Weber
This book has an interesting concept. Each chapter is devoted to three short stories (3-4 pages each). These chapters are themed, for example there are a couple chapters devoted to plants, animals, and humans. As you read each of the three stories in the chapter, you as a reader, are to decide which story out of the three is a fake. In the back of the book, you can research your chapter and find out if your prediction was correct. In the Answer Guide, the author tells you a bit more about the stories and why the one story, out of the three, was a lie. I have mixed feelings about this novel.
 
I read these stories out loud to my husband as we traveled this past weekend. I would read the three stories and then we each would make a prediction on which story we thought was a lie. Sometimes we both choose the same story and other times we each chose a different story, which began a conversation about what made our story a lie. I liked the off-beat stories as I thought they were interesting and enlightening. The illustrations all looked promising and real, yet I knew that one of the stories was a lie and I found myself analyzing the illustrations with great care. There were topics about bridges made out of vines, a headless chicken, how to stop the aging process and x-ray vision, just to name a few. As we read through the chapters, we both were left pondering on a few of them as we both thought there seemed to be two lies and not just one. We really had to analyze these stories and think them through. Again, I loved the topics that were covered as I love learning new and quirky things. What I didn’t like about this novel is that I thought for some readers, they might have a hard time when they realize the true answer. The author had written some great detailed stories and as I read, I was believing that most of this was true. After finding the story that was a lie, I had to rethink about the facts for that story, telling myself that they were lies. I had to rewire my thoughts from my first original telling of the information. I just hope in the future, I don’t tell one of the fake stories to someone and forget that it was fake. I think this would be a great book for kids who are inquisitive about the world around them and for kids who love to learn new interesting ideas. This was a fun, interesting novel and the stories were excellent.
