Pumpkin Rolls and Porn Sounds by Kris T. Bethke Review
Pumpkin Rolls and Porn Sounds - Kris T. Bethke

ill Grant only attends the PFLAG meeting because his mother guilts him into it. But the instant he hears the night’s speaker, Will is glad he showed up. Joshua Rhinehardt is dynamic and engaging. Although Joshua isn’t physically Will’s type, Will can’t get the man out of his head.

Joshua may be comfortable in his own skin, but it isn’t often men like Will are attracted to him, and he's not comfortable changing for someone else. He wants to make a life with Will, but his own insecurities keep getting in the way. 

Will’s unwavering acceptance helps Joshua see that when two people connect, physical appearance just might not matter at all.

 

Review

 

This is a really sweet romance with nice dating. Will is lovely as he finds himself attracted to Josh who is not his usual type. Josh is wonderful, a baker and a big beautiful man which is a kind of hero I love

Josh has self esteem issues around his looks. Will really finds his verve with Josh. 

The story format doesn't allow the depth to deal with these topics I would have liked but it is a nice read with a very nice connections between the leads.

Player's Handbook (D&D Core Rulebook) - Wizards RPG Team

Ok, wow. This book is going to take me awhile to get through. Is there a D&D for Dummies? I bet there is.

Sounds Like Summer
Sounds Like Summer - Six de los Reyes Sounds Like Summer - Six de los Reyes WARNING. This ain’t a light review. It’s kind of not even really a review, it’s pretty personal. And it’s got spoilers. Let’s call it a book-related essay.

It was dark winter nights about 15 years ago when I would start to forget how I even got home. When I blanked out my whole commute, not because of my mind being too distracted or active or even out of habit, but because I just didn’t care.

This book is about a character who doesn’t fit with her job or where she works. Rationally, Lux is very aware of this. Emotionally, she can’t quite process the idea of letting that go. The idea that if she’s not good enough at this job, if she can’t make this work, then she’s not good enough.

What I didn’t realize for a few weeks in that January, once showers became difficult to take and alarm clocks too easy to ignore, is I was going through the second major depressive episode of my life. What felt like harmless and insignificant drives home weren’t, they were more likely the tiny beginnings of suicide ideation. (“What if I don’t care about the breaks, about steering?”) Remembering this is a bit traumatic. Seeing it in a character is really painful. While I enjoyed the romance portion of this book, and I’d like it even more if I hadn’t read it on the heels of a little quiet and similar book (for the romance/mental health) called Waiting for the Flood (apparently the academic women really cut to the core) and it became so relatable. Micah is definitely the shit if you like sweet boys. But that should not be why you read this little novella. You should read it for a young adult’s (grad student) experience with her struggle with depression and self-harm.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom - Bill Martin Jr.,John Archambault,Lois Ehlert

 

Brief Review:

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is about rhyming with the alphabet, so young children can learn the alphabet.

Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom could be used in the classroom by teaching rhyming and the alphabet. The teacher could use the story to teach the students the alphabet.

Reading Level & Leveling System:

Direct Reading Assessment

20-24

Pre-k to K

Book Rating:

I would rate this book a 5 because I think its great to have a story behind the alphabet and rhyming words with it, so gives students a chance to put the alphabet and a little bit of background information.

Word Sounds
Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? - Dr. Seuss

This book by Dr. Seuss presents students with different sounds of real world objects and animals. This book is an easy read for students. Students will experience rhymes and word sounds, or onomatopoeia. An interesting activity to do with this text is having students guess an object or animal from a particular sound. I will have a paper bag with multiple items it in and I will provide a sound for the item. The students will try to guess the item in the paper bag.
