Shawn Loves Sharks
Shawn Loves Sharks - Curtis Manley,Tracy Subisak
What an exciting story about friendship and sea animals. This book feels so real to me that I can see many children loving it.
 
Shawn is obsessed with sharks. Shawn has watched and memorized many shark movies and he has over a hundred shark books at home. Shawn even opens up his mouth wide, like a shark, when he eats. (Not a pleasant sight but pretty extreme measures, I believe.) He loves to chase after his peers at recess, pretending to be a shark, as they scream and run away. He especially likes chasing Stacy because she screams the loudest.
 
When his teacher announces that each child was going to research a predator, Shawn knew that he would research a shark. His teacher then has each student draw a slip of paper from a bowl. On that slip of paper has the name of the predator they would then research. Would Shawn get the shark? No, Stacy drew the shark slip of paper. The girl that Shawn used to chase.
 
It’s an interesting turn-of-events as Shawn and Stacy research their animals and then head out for recess.
 
I think this is a fun, entertaining story. It’s educational as the children learn about the animals. I liked the emotions and the facial expressions in the book. I feel it’s a book worth checking out.

Llama Llama Loves to Read - Anna Dewdney Llama Llama Loves to Read - Anna Dewdney
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

A wonderful book for young book-lovers.

I'll admit, I was a little disappointed that there wasn't really a story in this one. The book touches on various aspects of Llama Llama learning to read (sight words, alphabet, getting books at the library), but does not have a real plot. There is a point when Llama gets a tiny bit frustrated about hard words, but it doesn't really go anywhere. I really like Llama Llama books that teach a lesson. This one celebrates reading, which is wonderful, but it wasn't much of a story.

Having said that, it was still an entertaining and pleasant read. The rhyme scheme is very soothing and the book flows nicely. I also enjoyed the illustrations.

Overall, it could have used more of a plot, but I still found it to be an enjoyable book.

This Book Loves You - PewDiePie

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

My husband loves PewDiePie. I watch his videos with him sometimes and while I am not a huge fan, I'll admit he can be clever/funny at times. So I didn't have high expectations that I would love this book or anything. 

This book is a parody of every inspirational/self-help book ever written. Just looking at it, you know it isn't going to be fantastic or anything. It's basically a humorous coffee table book. 

While some of the quotes are funny, most of them are just dumb and random.

Each quote is paired with a picture. There is a list of picture credits at the end of the book, which was a great inclusion. The only problem I had with this was that the credits are listed by page number, but none of the pages in the book are actually numbered. Are you really expected me to count 200-some pages to figure out where you got a certain photo? A silly omission in my opinion. 

Okay read. Good coffee table book for fans of PewDiePie.

The Youth & Young Loves of Oliver Wade
The Youth & Young Loves of Oliver Wade: Stories - Ben Monopoli

"This was the tragedy of growing up a closeted gay boy: you've had no practice when it matters."

 

We meet Ollie near the end of Paintings of Porcupine City, so we don't really get to know him that well when he and Fletcher hook up. These books have always been more gay lit than M/M, so I was only disappointed that we didn't get to know Ollie better. This collection of short stories fixes that. It chronicles Ollie's life from his first school dance to his meeting and first date with Fletcher.

 

The stories are often insightful, and the ones focusing of his teen years are especially angsty. One of the college years stories includes dub-con, so be aware of that. What is fascinating in all the stories is how Ollie learns to be honest with himself and others, how he figures out what being gay means, and how he fumbles as he tries time and again to find true love - until that true love finds him.

 

I still don't know what to make of Paint Day. It's a weird fantastical element in books otherwise firmly rooted in reality, but a bit of mystical reality never hurt anyone I suppose. :D
