Star Darlings (1-3) - Review
Star Darlings Collection Volume 1: Sage and the Journey to Wishworld; Libby and the Class Election; Leona's Unlucky Mission - Shana Muldoon Zappa,Ahmet Zappa

Overall this is a pretty good series for girls. It has a overarcing plot going on in the back ground and the world is this sci-fi futuristic world so yay sci-fi for girls.

The bad of it is that we have the mean girl via Vivica who is only there to cause trouble and be mean with no real reason as to why.

That being said Scarlet is snubbed by everyone for being a bit abrasive which ends the book of her knowing what's going on but Leona not giving her time to explain. It's a weak way to set up future conflicts due to misunderstandings.

Fucking up kids 101
Star Darlings Collection Volume 1: Sage and the Journey to Wishworld; Libby and the Class Election; Leona's Unlucky Mission - Shana Muldoon Zappa,Ahmet Zappa

Wishing for money is considered "greedy" yet Disney the one that publishes this series is always greedy for money.

It's telling kids that wanting money is "greedy" yet they are supposed to admire people that hoard it.

The example given is wishing for money to BUY A NEW PLAYGROUND FOR SCHOOL! Of course the good responses are doing fundraisers for the school. If only businesses paid their taxes and the city didn't sqander it.

Money is what keep people surviving in this capitalist hellscape. It's not greedy to wish for money unless you already have piles of it.

Review: Star Wars: Lando's Luck by Justina Ireland
Star Wars: Lando''s Luck - Justina Ireland

An all-new adventure starring Lando Calrissian and L3-37 onboard the Millennium Falcon.

When Lando Calrissian gets caught smuggling on the planet Hynestia, the queen agrees to let him go if he delivers something called the Solstice Globe to the Empire on her behalf. Lando is relieved that his punishment is a simple delivery mission-but he soon discovers things are not as simple as they seem. The queen's daughter, Princess Rinetta, has stowed away on the Millennium Falcon and demands Lando and L3-37 take the globe back to its home planet, which needs the globe to survive. Now Lando has to choose: Do what's right, or do what's best for Lando. But if he's lucky enough, he just might be able to do both....

I love Star Wars and the Star Wars universe. I'm not a mega fan like some people but I still like it and enjoy it very much. It is something I share with my kids and family. So when this book came up for review I was excited. Since I read some excerpts from the book and liked them I was even more excited.

That being said... I really enjoyed it for the most part but towards the end it seemed to drag a bit. It almost seemed stuck. Which slowed down the book and the pace of it a bit.

Some of the characters came over flat especially if they were not main characters, but overall they were fun and easy to follow.

If you know Star wars you know the world and it was fun revisiting them.... the book also had some very awesome and fun illustration that I enjoyed.

The book is rather short (for me) with under 200 pages but that will make it the perfect size for some kids. But I think the book is pretty much for young and old if you enjoy Star Wars.

Overall fun great book.... though it has some slow moments.

I rate it 3★

Slow to start, but definitely worth reading!
The Storm Runner - J.C. Cervantes,Jennifer Cervantes

*I received an ARC from NetGalley. This does not affect my review.*

First off, I'll admit that had it not been for a NetGalley email letting readers know about The Storm Runner and Dragon Pearl that were inspired and sponsored by Rick Riordan, I probably...perhaps very likely would not have heard of these, or picked them up so quickly... I loved the Percy Jackson series growing up, and like with any of my favorite authors, if they talk about other authors and books, I have to check them out! (Which is why this isn't a 5 star review.)


That said, while I wasn't immediately pulled into this one, I loved the idea of learning about Mayan mythology as I read this, and once the gods started getting introduced I quickly found myself wanting to know more! That was a big thing, since I was afraid this wouldn't be able to stand up to other mythology stories I've read like the mentioned Percy Jackson series, and even things like Gaiman's Norse Mythology. Not to worry, since I loved it! (Although all those I and X names kind of got confusing! I still managed to figure it out though.) If I was asked about a favorite character...? I don't have one, and there was a part where pretty much each of the main characters was able to stand up and have the spotlight. I loved so many little things that I can't even begin to list, with or without spoilers I just know I would miss something. Why not read it? I'm sure you will find your own favorite things about this book!

A Cake to Bake (Disney Princess) - Apple... A Cake to Bake (Disney Princess) - Apple Jordan,Fabio Laguna,Andrea Cagol
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

This book was a bit of a letdown. I was excited by the idea of a book with multiple princesses in it. But the book is very random because of this and kind of boring. 

Instead of incorporating all of the princesses into one story, this book describes the princesses essentially doing the same thing: baking. Each princess has her own mini-story. Interesting idea, but the stories are so short and simple that they are rather dull (Beast is sad so Belle makes brownies, Rapunzel enters a pie contest). None of the stories were very exciting. 

Plus, Merida's story didn't really add up. I haven't seen Brave in awhile, but I can't imagine Merida being super in to baking. And I definitely don't see her gladly sharing the cookies she made with her brothers after they refused to help her. 

The illustrations were nice. It was interesting to see the princesses in new environments. 

This one was just okay.
