Shabby Sunday

collage-2017-08-10-51

I have a bunch of old vintage books and seem to keep acquiring more. One of my plans when  starting this blog was to do a post every now and then sharing one of my cherished vintage books. Then I thought there might be other book bloggers out there that have some vintage books, heirlooms, or maybe some old books from childhood that they might want to share.

This meme titled ‘Shabby Sunday’ is for those who would like to participate and share some of their old vintage books. Do you have some shabby books you’d like to share? If so, please feel free to participate as anyone can join. Feel free to use my meme image if you’d like to. If you decide to do this meme, please consider linking back to me in this post so that I can see the book you’re sharing.

Humpy the Moose

Explore the life of a moose…

When little Humpy the Moose comes into the world, he is amazed with all there is to learn. Each day brings a new lesson, and before long he must learn how to make it on his own. Children will delight in the story of how Humpy the Moose transforms from a scared little animal to the master of all he can see!

Humpy the Moose is a book that we quickly snatched up at a library book sale years ago. As soon as I saw it, a sense of familiarity hit me, and it looked like a book from my childhood. My then six-year-old son was just starting to read easy books, and with our love of nature, this is one we simply couldn’t pass up. I’ve always been fascinated by these majestic creatures.

Noddingham: The True Story of Robyn Hood

By Anna Burke

Blurb:

Robyn Hood didn’t set out to rob the rich, but in Nottingham, nothing ever goes according to plan….

After a fateful hunting accident sends her on the run from the law, Robyn finds herself deep in the heart of Sherwood Forest. All she really wants to do is provide for her family and stay out of trouble, but when the Sheriff of Nottingham levies the largest tax in the history of England, she’s forced to take matters into her own hands. Relying on the help of her band of merry women and the Sheriff’s intriguing—and off limits—daughter, Marian, Robyn must find a way to pull off the biggest heist Sherwood has ever seen.

With both heart and freedom at stake, just how much will she risk to ensure the safety of the ones she loves?

Book Review: The Pastel Effect by Arly Carmack #ThePastelEffect #BookReview #Fiction #YoungAdult

The Pastel Effect

by Arly Carmack

Blurb:

Caroline seems like a typical high school sophomore. She has a best friend, a crush, and the coolest dad a girl could ever ask for. But she also has something inside of her that she knows doesn’t belong. Something that casts a shadow over her adolescent rites of passage. Something she’d rather not name for fear that it will become too real. She knows it lives in her mind — the self-doubt, the sadness, the feeling that all is doomed, that everyone leaves, and that maybe it’s her fault. It flips on as easily as a switch, and it can burn out as fast as a match, but it’s always there, waiting.

Cody feels the pressure from everyone in his life. His parents expect an academically capable athlete. His friends want the life-of-the-party. He tries to be everything for everyone and loses himself somewhere along the way. He’s amused by Caroline, someone so completely unlike him that he can’t help but fall for her. In a world where being himself feels wrong, he finds the acceptance he longs for in their friendship.
