Colby the Camel: The Tussle in the Castle of No-Bustle by Junia Wonders
Colby the Camel: The Tussle in the Castl... Colby the Camel: The Tussle in the Castle of No-Bustle - Junia Wonders,Divin Meir

The pirates have taken over the Castle of No-Bustle and imprisoned the king and queen. They are forcing the princess to marry one of the pirates. Their parrot goes out to find help but no one will help and he is so tired that he lands in a well where Colby the Camel finds him. Once the situation is explained to Colby, he journeys to the Castle and gathers compatriots along the way. They fight the pirates but who will win? Will Colby save the day?

 

This was so cute! It was a fun story. The rhyming was fun to listen to. The illustrations are bright and colorful. I could not wait to find out what happened. There's action and adventure galore here. Perfect for your 2-6 year old.

The Glass Castle - Jeannette Walls
This book made me feel a lot. Some parts made me angry or sad for the situations they were in and then other parts I could feel the love. I like how the author told the good and the bad. She seemed to try to just keep it real.

Review ~ Awesome!
Castle Walk - Melissa Bowersock

4.5

 

Book source ~ Kindle Unlimited

 

When the owners of the Castle Fitzpatrick in Ireland call Lacey Fitzpatrick and Sam Firecloud to come investigate some ghosts in the castle, Sam and Lacey are surprised. They had no idea that anyone had heard of their paranormal investigation business outside the western US. Lacey is even more surprised by the castle name. Is this a connection to her own family tree? She’s about to find out because they accept the offer and away they go.

 

Nice! I like how this one weaves Lacey’s family history into it. I’ve seen Sam’s family on the reservation, so it’s only fair to get some info on Lacey. And it’s a doozy! The ghosts are heart breaking though. I like the side characters and hope to see them again in another book. All-in-all a fast intriguing read.

Desperate and Deceptive
Desperate and Deceptive: The Guinevere Jones Collection Volume 1 - Jayne Castle

Hoo boy...okay.

 

This book contains the first two books of the Guinevere Jones mysteries: The Desperate Game and The Chilling Deception. Both were originally published in 1986, and good grief, does it ever show.

 

The "hero" quite frankly (and excuse my language) was a dick. The heroine was pretty much a dishrag at times, despite that fact that I think she was intended to be a feminist character.

 

In the first book, the hero was pretty intolerable, and I was unsure I'd be able to get through it. But, thanks to a book light and sheer boredom, I prevailed. The second book was easier to get through, and I could see glimmers of Krentz/Quick/Castle heroes to come, but then this dude would say or do something that would enrage me all over again. I did find the heroine slightly more likeable in the second book, but there were times I wanted to grab her by the shoulder and shout that she could do better than this jerk.

 

From the perspective of a fan of this author, it was interesting to read a couple of her earlier books if only to see how much she improved during the ensuing years.

 

I have the second volume that contains the final two books, and I will read it. Just not right away, I don't think.
