Shabby Sunday

collage-2017-08-10-51

I have a bunch of old vintage books and continue to acquire 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. I figured there might be other book bloggers out there with 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.

This Week’s Reads: For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten and Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner #AmReading #Books #Reads

Things have been very busy with planting and outdoor work, which has slowed my reading colossally. We ended up deciding on a whim to fix one particular landscaping area behind my house, and it turned into a huge project but a fun and rewarding one. It’ll be nice to have some new, different plants to share for Flower Friday too.

I just finished up That Weekend, which turned out to be pretty good. I’ll post my review within a week as this releases in June.

I’m reading with the kids The Dark Lord Clementine and Echo Mountain. The first one is taking some time to get into.

Middle-Grade Book Review: Red Rover by Christopher Krovatin #MiddleGrade #Horror #BookReview #RedRover

Red Rover

by Christopher Krovatin

Blurb:

Sit, stay, die. Dogs aren’t always man’s best friend.

When Amy sees a dog stranded on the side of the highway, she knows what she has to do. She tells her dad to stop the car. She can’t understand why anyone would abandon a dog in such a way, tied up and blindfolded. Amy’s parents say they’ll only keep the dog until they can find it a permanent home. Amy’s younger sister names the dog Rover. 

They take Rover into their house, their family. And once he’s there . . . he doesn’t want to leave. 

Amy loves dogs. But she starts to worry when strange things start happening in the house. Objects move. Lights go off. Accidents happen.

Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman

Blurb:

“I bought the milk,” said my father. “I walked out of the corner shop, and heard a noise like this: t h u m m t h u m m. I looked up and saw a huge silver disc hovering in the air above Marshall Road.”

“Hullo,” I said to myself. “That’s not something you see every day. And then something odd happened.”

Find out just how odd things get in this hilarious New York Times bestselling story of time travel and breakfast cereal, expertly told by Newbery Medalist and bestselling author Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Skottie Young.
