Seriously Just Go To Sleep...
Seriously, Just Go to Sleep - Adam Mansbach,Ricardo Cortés

Before I read this, I thought this was like a "part 2" of Go the F*ck to Sleep but it's actually just a clean version of it. It honestly didn't have quite the same effect I thought, but if you want to read to your kids or buy as a gift for someone who can't handle a few cuss words, then this would be the one to get.

You Have to F*cking Eat...
You Have to F*****g Eat - Adam Mansbach,Owen Brozman

Now this was even better then Go the F*ck to Sleep! : ) I think because I related to it more and still battle with my youngest son about eating breakfast, eating healthy, and not waiting until 9:00 pm to decide he's hungry, etc. etc. : ) 

Mansbach's books are a definite must read for anyone with kids.

Go the F**k to Sleep - Adam Mansbach

I remember those days! I needed this laugh when my boys were little. : )

 

I listened to the audio and read the book along with it. Samuel Jackson's introduction is just as hilarious as the story. Lol

The Last Apprentice/ Wardstone Chronicles Series-Book #8...
Rage of the Fallen: Wardstone Chronicles / Last Apprentice, Book 8 - Patrick Arrasmith,Christopher Evan Welch,Joseph Delaney

Rage of the Fallen is the 8th book in The Last Apprentice series by Joseph Delaney. Tom, the Spook's apprentice, has made a lot of enemies in his three years fighting the dark. One of his enemies, Morrigan -the goddess of witches has told him not to ever set foot in her homeland of Ireland but the war is still raging in their own country so Tom, the Spook & Alice must flee there anyways. His other very powerful enemy, the Fiend, is also still hunting him in hopes of catching him unguarded. The Spook decides that it's time to go on the offensive and bring the Fiend down so Tom joins forces with Grimalkin- the witch assassin, who trains him and helps him battle and bind the Fiend once and for all. 

 

After eight really well written books I'm starting to run out of things to say! All of them have been so good and this one was no different. The audio narrator, Evan Welsh, is just marvelous! I think it would be extremely hard to talk like a witch or demon or boggart etc. but he does it so effortlessly and he sounds just like what you'd expect a creature of the dark to sound like. If you're a fan of these type of stories, then you can't go wrong with this series. It's perfect for older kids as well as adults. 

 

*I read this for my 2016 Halloween Bingo: ~"Fall" into a Good Book~ square

Calling All Cat Lovers!
Fifty Nifty Facts about Cats (Volume 1) - J. R. Tony, Chapman, Stephen N., Clive, Lloyd M. Arnold,S.M. Davis

I think most of you guys are fellow cat lovers too so I'm sure you understand my desire to read this book. It's hard to pass up a precious feline face.

 

50 Nifty Facts about Cats is just that- 50 pages each with an interesting tidbit about cats along with large and vivid pictures of cats showing off their unique personalities. 

 

It's a charming little book and my son and I had a great time laughing at the adorable pictures and learning some new things about our favorite feline friends. 

 

For example, did you know that cats are superfecund? Yep "a single mom can have a litter with multiple fathers. Such a litter may have siblings that look very different from each other." 

 

I had no idea! : )

 

 

or how about this- 

 

"Cats can become lactose intolerant. As a kitten ages, it loses the ability to digest the milk sugar and lactose. Ingesting dairy products, like milk and ice cream, can upset adult cats' bellies." 

 

I didn't know that either! I've been wondering why my cat doesn't seem to want vanilla ice cream and milk as much as he use to. I just figured his tastes have changed but I guess it must upset his tummy now that he's older.

 

 

Never fear though- you're cat won't go thirsty because guess what?!

 

"Cats can drink seawater. Drinking salt water dehydrates most mammals but a cat's kidneys are so efficient, they can filter out the salt and rehydrate the body with seawater." 

 

Pretty cool huh?! You can take your feline friend with you to the beach now. : )

 

   

 

When I finished reading this book, my first thoughts were it would make a great coffee table book and conversation piece but the cover has a classroom textbook look to it. It really needs a dressier cover and a few more facts and pictures to be a nice coffee table book, then it would be perfect for displaying in your living room. 

 

I think all cat lovers would enjoy this book though and should check it out. It would even make a great tool for teachers to gets kids excited about books and animals. And if you're not particularly a cat fan, there are also 50 Nifty Facts books about Dogs, Horses and Elephants! 

 

*I received this ARC from NetGalley & Vulpine Press in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
