That Is Not a Good Idea! - Mo Willems

This book is a great book to show students. I would use this book up to 3rd grade. Everyone thinks that the bad animal in a book would be a fox rather than the rabbit, but not in this case. This book teaches a child not to assume who is bad, but wait and read how its going to end. A teacher could use this book to have the students right another script. The book is more of cartoon writing so each student could take a page or a group of students good and come up with their own original story based on the pictures.

My Lucky Day
My Lucky Day - Keiko Kasza

In My Lucky Day, the story takes an unexpected turn when Mr. Pig knocks on Mr. Wolf's door.  It seems that surely the pig is going to be dinner for Mr. Wolf.  However, he tricks the wolf into giving him a bath, a meal, and a massage!  I think this story would be a wonderful story to read and have the class predict what will happen next in the story.  A good activity would be to have the class draw a picture of what they think will happen next and then reveal the ending after they share their pictures!

 

I think this book would be great for kindergarten and first graders.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT LIFE IS ANYMORE?
Ugly Love - Colleen Hoover

Author: Colleen Hoover

Pages: 336

Purchase it here:

 Amazon and BarnesandNobles

 

When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she doesn't think it's love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her. They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

DEAFENING SILENCE

 That line from the book represents exactly how i feel right now. I just finished the book like 13 minutes ago and i had to let everything sink in. Honestly after finishing this book i feel so dumb for putting it down after 55 pages. I can't believe i even doubted colleen hoovers undeniable talent for even a second. 

 

DISCLAIMER: THIS BOOK CONTAIN SEXUAL MATERIAL.

 

However despite all the sex scenes, each one of them is able to clearly convey both of the characters emotions about one another. During everyone of them my heart breaks a little. But my heart collapses in a zillion pieces and burns when i read the plot twist. It literally made me feel like this...... and this........

This book is an emotional roller coaster that must be experienced. The ending made me cry because it was so heartwarming. I also really enjoyed the double perspective. Not only that but Tate's perspective that takes place in present time and miles perspective is in the past. This form of writing really intrigued me more because as Tate tries to figure out miles past we are able to read about it. It felt like two different stories that get entwined somehow.  But the cheery on top was when Colleen Hoover teaches us a valuable life lesson.

I just don't know how to experience this feeling and that's the best part about reading Colleen Hoovers writing, it leaves that impression on you.

A twisty, turny cult classic.
A Kiss Before Dying - Otto Penzler,Ira Levin

This book is a debut novel by Ira Levin, written in the 1950s.  It definitely has that 50's sounding tone, the way things are written and worded, and definitely people's attitudes.  If I read this book with my modern perspective, there are quite a few things that I don't like.  There is definitely overt classism happening, and this idea of "marrying up" seems pretty well accepted.  And the portrayal of the well behaved 50's woman is sort of maddening.  The helpless, submissive, dependent woman is not one that inspires me.  I do think that this characterization is more of a critique than anything though, since Levin did go on to write The Stepford Wives.  There were definitely plot twists, that were well done and kept me guessing until the end.  But the overall pace of the book was a bit slower than I'm used to.  Overall, I give this 3 stars, but with a bonus star for the time it was written.  Writers like Levin helped pave the way for modern authors like Gillian Flynn and others who have really embraced the surprise ending and plot twist.
