Who's the Boss?
Bossed - Sloane Howell

BOSSED had so many of the best things I love in romantic comedy: excellent chemistry between the main characters, laugh out loud banter, smoking hot sex, and situations that leave me smirking long after I'm finished reading. 

In all of those ways, BOSSED was pretty perfect in my opinion. It was just the infuriating way that the heroine acted that made this one a little less than perfect.

Ethan and Jenny started off on the wrong foot. Imagine telling a guy off in the park and then seeing him fifteen minutes later when he's interviewing you for a job. YEP, that happened here. But underneath all of their snark is a undeniable chemistry that you know will eventually combust. Both Ethan and Jenny have issues and protect their hearts at all costs, but in order to make things work, they will have to let the other in.

As I stated earlier, I thought this was pretty much perfect for the most part. I loved Jenny and Ethan's back and forth, their chemistry, and the story overall. But, I wasn't happy with the way handled many things during the book. It took some of my enjoyment out of the book because I was too busy screaming at her for acting like a ninny.

So, BOSSED was a solid *4 STARS* for me. I've only read one other book by this author and I really enjoyed that one too. I definitely will be keeping him on my radar!

The Mitten by Jan Brett

This book is about a little boy who wants more than anything in the world for his grandmother to make him a pair of white mittens for his birthday. His grandmother reluctantly makes him the mittens. However, it was on the condition that he does not lose them. Tragically, he drops one of them in the forest. Then several different kinds of wild animals snuggle up within the mitten to get warm. Eventually all of the animals leave the mitten. Much to the pleasure of the boy, he finds the lost mitten. This is a wonderful story. It could be used in the classroom accompanied by an actual reenactment of the story. I have seen it done before and the children absolutely loved it. This book has a lexile level of 800L. So for recreational reading students should be in 1st or 2nd grade. It could be used as a classroom reading as well for younger students.

Horton Hears A Who by Dr. Seuss
Horton Hears a Who! - Dr. Seuss

This book is about an elephant, Horton, who hears a voice coming from a tiny speck of dust. He realizes that there are creatures living on the speck. He tries his best to convene those around him that there are creatures living on it. Sadly, the beings around him did not believe him and ultimately attempt to destroy the speck out of pure cruelty. Eventually the creatures living on the speck make enough noise that the creatures of the forest hear them. Thus, they are safe again. This book is a great recreational read for children. It is also a great book to use during Dr. Seuss week at school. This book has a lexile level of 490L, so children in the 1st and 2nd grade could read it independently.
