Beagle in a Backpack - Ben M. Baglio

This was a cute read. The story was interesting and filled with lots of twists and turns.

But I felt like the story really dragged out. The plot was all over the place between trying to find Amber and Frisbee as well as figuring out what was wrong with Portia. Both were interesting plot lines, but including both in one book made it feel like too much.

I also couldn't help but dislike Mandy's character. Her love of animals was amiable, but she felt like too much of a grown up. The way she talked and worried about everything made it hard to relate to her (even for me as a "grown up"). Everything about her felt too serious for a children's book.

I also didn't like how Mandy's parents treated her like a grown up. They'd tell her to do something, she'd argue, and they'd realize she was right and let her do her own thing (no matter how irresponsible or dangerous). This felt highly unrealistic. I wanted them to act like real parents at some point.

Overall, an okay read. There is no denying that Frisbee is adorable.

Colt in the Cave - Ben M. Baglio

I found a copy of this book in the Lending Library. I haven't read any of the Animal Ark Hauntings books before this, but I remember having a few Animal Ark books growing up

Overall, the story was interesting. Without giving too much away, the ending did not come as much of a surprise given that it is a Hauntings book. But I still enjoyed the story and liked how all of the pieces fell into place.

Not going to lie, the best part was everyone trying figure out the Internet. It really brought me back to the days of that awful start up tone and not getting calls while on Yahoo Messenger. Good times.

A cool, quick read with a nice ending.

Intelligent Star recipient Antonio J. Mendez inspired movie Argo
The Master of Disguise - 'Antonio J. Mendez'
Argo: How the CIA and Hollywood Pulled Off the Most Audacious Rescue in History - 'Antonio Mendez', 'Matt Baglio'

Two books that should be read one after the other. 

 

First, the story of Argo that is based on real event in history. Then the person who pulled if off, Tony Mendez.

 

I like persons who are brave and helpful and smart. His job is like Q in James Bond movies. 

 

A Q in real life is really cool. Only that he keep calm in very stressful situation. And he did good because he want to do good.
