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.

This Week’s Reads and Happenings: Tigers, Not Daughters by Samantha Mabry – Hatchet & The River by Gary Paulsen #Reading #AmReading #Books

This has been a crazy week so far! On Monday came the freeze, which is going to last most of this week. I had to get all of our plants out of the greenhouse and into the garage which was a big project. As much as I love winter, when it comes in late like this and ruins spring flowers, it’s a total drag. Our lilacs were going to bloom, but I doubt they will now, and that’s something I look forward to every year. At least we were able to enjoy the trees in bloom for a few days. Walking outside yesterday to the woods, now turned white, after everything was so lush, green, and beautiful was just bizarre.
