Lucy and Danae: Something Silly This Way Comes - Wiley Miller

My mom came across this book somewhere and bought it because it has my name on it. :) It has a character who shares my name, my favorite animal as a sidekick and according to Wikipedia, this comic strip began six days after I was born. Quelle coïncidence !

Anyway, it's not my favorite comic strip in the world, but it was fun and enjoyable and I'm glad I have it. :)

I'm really liking this author
Highland Song (The Highland Brides) (Volume 5) - Tanya Anne Crosby

I'd read one Crosby before, the first o this series actually, and I remembered it as one of those rare romances that have alpha males that I did not hate, very sweet, a bit sad, and with some awesome bits of humor.

 

This was hilarious. Short, fast, and by a third in I couldn't stop laughing. Because of Cat's self-assurance and free approach to sex mostly, like this bit of her thinking:

 

He had been such a grouse at first but now his mood had lightened considerably. No longer did he brood, and she concluded that he must have needed to appease his willy. It made sense to her. A man could simply not go his entire life without a little love—and he had, she was certain because he’d had that pinched look about him of a man whose bollocks were petrified from lack of use.

 

Or Piers insistence on complimenting the roof. Or... well, you get the drift.

 

I had fun, and I'm glad. I was looking for something to clean my palate from The Sun Also Rises cynicism (I'm starting to feel stuck), and this was perfect.

The Slayer's Redemption
The Slayer's Redemption (Warriors of York) (Volume 1) - Marliss Melton

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

I picked up The Slayer’s Redemption because it was recommended somewhere. I read the blurb and wanted to check it out. And I can honestly say I haven’t regretted that decision.

The Slayer’s Redemption, book 1 of Warriors of York, by Marliss Melton is the reissue of her debut novel Danger’s Promise. I haven’t read anything by the author prior to this, not even the original so can’t really do a compare and contrast. However, what I can tell you is that I’d be waiting for any medieval/historical romance she writes from now on! This was a pure feel-good medieval romance, like those I had read from other famous authors like Julie Garwood. It had fun, some quirkiness with some mysteries and really odd stuff happening throughout. The heroine was adorably clueless sometimes but she was not TSTL by any means. And the hero, nicknamed The Slayer because of rumors of him being a killing machine, was nothing like that. He was also adorably clueless, and grumpy. Most of the times. But he was true and loyal where it mattered the most—in his heart. The Slayer definitely had a heart and it wasn’t black contrary to what everyone, including himself, believed. And that is what the author set out to tell us in this adorable little novel.

Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs - Judi Barrett,Ron Barrett

Lexile Level: 

 

Life in the wonderful town of ChewandSwallow is great, instead of snow, wind, or rain, they get a different kind of weather that falls from the sky three times a day: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But no one is too worried about the weather, until it takes a turn for the worse; the portions of food get larger and fall faster, until everyone in the town fears for their lives. With teamwork and marts, the residents are able to save themselves from the torrential food weather.

This book could be used as a kick starter for a science lesson or just for a fun read aloud. I would use this with grades 2nd to 5th grade.
