The Day I Fell in Love with this Book!
The Day the Crayons Quit - Drew Daywalt,Oliver Jeffers

"The Day the Crayons Quit", by Drew Daywalt, is one of many favorite books on my shelf. This book is about a little boy's crayon collection that has had enough! They are fed up with Duncan. The crayons are tired of being used so much, made to color weird things, only used to color boring coloring book pages, and many more funny reasons. This book is not only funny, but the illustrations make it even more fun and definitely kid friendly. They even look like a child drew them! How fun is that? I would keep this book on the shelf for a fun read. You could also read the story and use as a quick writing activity about a time your students got tired of something and what they did to solve their problem. This could also be used with kindergarten and incorporate color activities with it. Any way you use it is sure to be fun and have your students laughing!

Book 34/100: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing - Marie Kondō

I like to live a basically decluttered life, but as someone who is also thrifty and a little sentimental, my downfalls are always cheap books and gifts. I buy very little for myself besides food and the occasional replacement for something essential that has broken, but my shelves and drawers continue to fill in response to the generosity of others. So stuff encroaches, and the occasional purge is always in order.

As much as I want to do a total declutter before Baby arrives, I know that isn't actually going to happen ... but this book did give me some motivation to get rid of things as I can (which is not what Kondo recommends, btw.) I did read it before I did my annual book reorganizing, though, and I was able to purge more books than I've ever purged in an annual reorganizing before (although still not as many as she would have liked me to, I'm sure!). I have to translate her question of, "Does this bring me joy?" to "Do I want to drop everything and start reading this book RIGHT NOW?" when I organize my books, and because my reading appetite is so voracious and my tastes so varied, the answer to that question is "yes," for practically every book in my house. I use the "spark joy" criteria for the books I've already read, but that is a small portion of my collection since I tend to set books free after I have read them.

The question about whether a possession sparks joy or not is the most useful part of this book, the most publicized, and one that you honestly do not need to read the whole book to start applying. It also pretty much ignores practicality, and the many things that you keep even though they don't spark joy necessarily, like your cutting board, your dishwashing detergent, and your toothpaste. She also prioritizes space and simplicity above all else, and if that is not YOUR personal priority you are likely to butt heads with her philosophy. For example, she discourages "stocking up" on items such as toilet paper to cut down on clutter -- but if your priority is time (not having to shop as often) or cost-savings (it's cheaper to buy in bulk), then you have a right to act according to *that* priority rather than to hers. I for one am not going to stop buying non-expirables in bulk because I don't like to shop OR to know I'm spending more than I need to.

She also assumes a certain amount of privilege in assuring readers that they can "buy another one" if they find they've discarded something that they truly do need six months later. My husband points out that this is sound advice if your space is so small that you'd be paying for a bigger house or extra storage space just to keep something around that you only use once in a while, but if those are not issues and you can't afford to buy a new pet taxi every time you take your cat to the vet even though it's just once a year with the occasional emergency, well, just keep that pet taxi tucked away in the basement somewhere.

As the book goes on, the sensible and helpful advice on downsizing devolves into "my way is the only right way" tips on organizing that border on the neurotic. Socks must be folded a certain way, clothes must be hung in a certain order, etc. While I'm all for folding my clothes in a way that makes them easier to fit in my drawers and access easily (although I still have to learn her folding technique and actually try it), there's no way I'm going to empty my purse and repack it every day -- I have a hard enough time getting out the door on time as it is.

All-in-all, this is a good book to motivate you to start decluttering and downsizing, but take it with a grain of salt and don't let Kondo's insistence that her way is the only way stress you out.

REVIEW: The Best Seller
The Best Seller - Dina Rae

Have you ever read a book that you both loved and hated all at the same time? That is very much this book for me.


At first, the author completely had me captivated by the story of General Robert Andreas and Dr. Karl Jaeger, a military man who works for the government and a man who is described as "perhaps one of the Nazi's biggest monstrosities of the war." Very science fiction. Very Area 51. I'm hooked.


Then, out of nowhere, the story changes to the story of Maya Smock and how her life intermingles with Jay McCallister, her favorite author, as she goes from a normal, everyday girl who works at a bookstore and dreams of one day being an author, to getting published and becoming one of those best-sellers she always envied.


Seems like an interesting story, right? It is. It really is.


And yet I couldn't help having so much frustration with it.


First, the book description gave away too much of what happens in the story, causing me to not feel that surprise and mystery that I usually get from a thriller. The fact that her and McCallister have this connection - and what the connection is - is huge, and I would have rather found that out during the story instead of just waiting for that to come. It took away a lot of my enjoyment.


Second, the lack of editing was very off-putting. I'm not just talking about missing words in sentences (which is quite tedious when you're reading), but the fact that the author repeats information about these characters over and over again i.e. Maya's stay in different orphanages and homes until the age of seventeen, her promiscuity, Eric giving her a job.


Third, my favorite character (Maya) was one that had a lot of depth to her, but she made some bad decisions, ignored all those gut feelings, and continued to abuse herself just as bad as the adults in her younger days did. Hindsight is 20-20, I guess, because as she's telling the story, you realize that she probably would have done things differently, but with the strength that she had to do what she initially did, I found myself getting angry with her quite a bit because of her stupidity. I honestly felt like I was reading a story where the main character was a teenager, and not someone who had gone through all of this stuff and was now a grownup.


Fourth, the side story of Claude the Jerk, his girlfriend, the money... blah blah blah... really took away from the two stories I mentioned above. I wanted to know how they went together and how we were going to get to the whole Maya-McCallister connection, and found myself skimming through paragraphs in each chapter because I found them unnecessary. I felt more like I was reading a YA Romance than a Science Fiction Thriller.


Fifth, the way that Andreas and Jaeger interacted just seemed... childish. Maybe that's not the word I'm looking for, but I can't honestly think of a better way to put it. This is a General in the United States Military and a Doctor, yet their conversations seemed very immature. I just feel like something as secret as what they were dealing with would have been handled differently.


Dina Rae is a good writer, and I really enjoyed the amount of work she put into her character development, but this book failed to live up to its potential. As the two parts began to come together, the story got better and I could really see the talent that this writer has. Unfortunately, the editor she had (if she had one) failed to point out some things that disrupted the flow and took away from the main point of the story. She has written other novels that I may take a gander at, and I hope that she continues writing in the future, as I would like to see where her talent takes her.


Note: I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

The Best Seller
The Best Seller - Dina Rae Maya Smock lived in the system all her life. She grew up in foster care. Her mother left her at an orphanage when she was a baby. She was put into some very rough homes throughout her life. She was abused in more than one way. When she told once everyone thought she was crazy and she vowed never to tell again.

After the system threw her out on the street when she was eighteen years old with no job or anyone to help her she did manage to hit it lucky though. She met a guy that worked in a bookstore that gave her a job. She loved working in the bookstore as she loved reading. Maya could always be found with a book in her hands. When she was on break at work she was reading. Reading was her way of getting away and it was also a way for her to hide to become invisible. She didn’t like people noticing or seeing her she did not like being the center of attention like some people. She liked staying to herself that way no one could hurt her.

Maya liked to write and she would let her boss and best friend read what she wrote. When she wrote her first book her boss loved it and told her she needed to get it published. There was a booking signing of sorts coming to town and he told her to go and take her book and hopefully she would find someone that wanted it.

Maya decided to go to the signing and that is where she meets her agent who later also becomes her husband. After Maya finally “sells” her book to him they fall head over heels in love. He wraps Maya around his little finger in more ways than one. Maya is so naïve that she believes everything he says. Maya’s heart is so big that she believes everyone but trust no one.

Maya also meets another great man at the signing an author who becomes a close friend in a short amount of time. He believes that they are a lot like. He says his books write themselves and he believes that Maya’s does the same. Maya is not sure about him at first but over time she becomes to believe him more than anyone. Jay shows Maya that they are a like in more ways than one. Jay introduces Maya to a world with aliens in it and tells her they were created in a lab. At first of course she doesn’t believe him but after he shows her all of his research for lack of a better word at the moment she starts to have her doubts about everything she has been taught.

I have read lots of Dina’s books and loved them all but I think The Best Seller is the best one yet; maybe. I honestly believe that The Best Seller is a “best seller” and will enter the book world at warp speed. So grab your copy today so you don’t miss out this fantastic ride that I believe that The Best Seller is going to take us on. I am anxiously awaiting the next Best Seller. I hope it is soon. Dina?
