Review: The Berenstain Bears Bless Our Pets
The Berenstain Bears Bless Our Pets (Berenstain Bears/Living Lights) - Mike Berenstain

You know the best series out there that good for children is The Berenstain Bears. It teaches about things children need and still really good. It one of my favorite series. I regret getting rid of my books i had growing up. The one I have now i will not give them away. I am over the children section but I love reading children books. These books i will never grow out of or want to.

 

The Berenstain Bears Bless our pets is really is a new one. It deal with or what our children need in moral teachings in the real world. It teaches us that animals or our pets are more family rather than just plan animals. They should be treated like any other family member. I know I treat my pets like they are family and talk to them like their my babies.

 

Children will learn that they need to take care of pets and what it like and treat them like other family members to a point. Mike Berenstain does a really well job with it and with the pictures. The picture can tell the story.

Book Tour: Halley's Casino: The Adventures of Nebula Yorker
Halley's Casino: The Adventures of Nebula Yorker - Mark J.G. Fahey

Halley’s Casino is a good action and adventure book. It got some historical fiction with science fiction with the time travel. I liked it. It kept you guessing and entertained. I loved the fact that you get to time travel by going back though earth history.

 

The author does a wonderful job. I like that Nebula Yorker is the problem solver. Is Halley a Comet or is it an Intergalactic Casino? We see what Rome looks like at 12 BCE? Who is Nebula Parents? You find all kinds of surprises and twists along the way. I enjoyed the plot.

 

Will Neb save earth or will not? It adventures of a lifetime. Find out by reading. This book has a few stories and adventures waiting from beginning to end. Is the world as we see it or his it something we never imagined?

Blog Tour: Abuse of Discretion
Abuse of Discretion (Dre Thomas Series, Book 3) - Pamela Samuels Young

Abuse of Discretion is about a boy that saves a picture of and is the one that got accused of something he did not do. What will the justice system do about it? Is the adult system better than the juvenile criminal justice system?

 

The author takes you inside the juvenile criminal justice system with this story and plot. It about a boy and sex-texting. Will Graylin be put in jail for something he did not do or will be saved interact and that he got a photo of a classmate saved on his phone? He was just doing what young kids do at their age of fourteen. Will the truth be set him free or not.

 

Why do juvenile criminal justice system judges like to lock up teens and not let them go? It could have to do with something about the law written by the state. We get an inside of the system and to find out what happens we see Pamela and Angelica take on the case of depending Graylin.

 

Dres Thomas has his own problems to deal with. Will he outwit the Shepard or will he be killed himself? You will need to find out by reading. Pamela Samuels Young write the plot well. She throws in twist and turns and mystery throughout the book.

2017 End of the Year Book Survey, Pt. 2

looking-ahead-books-2015

 

There were too many books I'm looking forward to this year, so I decided to split this give them their own section. 2018 looks like it will be a good year for books. Hopefully it will be good for many things.

 

1. One Book You Didn’t Get To In 2017 But Will Be Your Number 1 Priority in 2018?

These 4 are all books by authors I've loved, but I just didn't get a chance to get to their new ones before the year ended.

Roomies - Christina Lauren  Foolish Hearts - Emma Mills  Love, Life, and the List - Kasie West  At the Edge of the Universe - Shaun David Hutchinson  

Year One was recommended to me by someone who thought I'd love it. It does sound perfect for me.

Year One - Nora Roberts 

This is the book from the Jane the Virgin TV series, which I love.

Snow Falling - Jane Gloriana Villanueva 

And the rest are all books that caught my eye from book blogs.

Echo After Echo - Amy Rose Capetta  Speak Easy, Speak Love - McKelle George  Kissing Max Holden - Katy Upperman  Here and Gone: A Novel - Haylen Beck  Lucky Girl - Amanda Maciel  Prince in Disguise - Stephanie Kate Strohm

2. Book You Are Most Anticipating For 2018 (non-debut)?

These are all by authors I like whose upcoming books sound right up my alley.

I'll confess it was the covers for these 2 that first made me want to read them. Then I read what they were actually about and was still interested.

Emergency Contact - Mary H. K. Choi  A Princess in Theory: Reluctant Royals - Alyssa Cole 

The rest of these came from upcoming release lists and all looked pretty good.

 Anger Is a Gift - Mark Oshiro  Girl Made of Stars - Ashley Herring Blake  Nothing Happened - Molly Booth  Lizzie - Dawn Ius  Dread Nation - Justina Ireland  Tyler Johnson Was Here - Jay Coles  The Prince and the Dressmaker - Jen Wang

 4. Series Ending/A Sequel You Are Most Anticipating in 2018?

My Plain Jane - Brodi Ashton,Cynthia Hand,Jodi Meadows  A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses) - Sarah J. Maas 

5. One Thing You Hope To Accomplish Or Do In Your Reading/Blogging Life In 2018?
