Children’s Book Haul #BookHaul #Books #ChildrensBooks #MiddleGrade

Hello everyone! Today I’ll be featuring our latest book haul. I don’t purchase book hauls that often, but every now and then it’s something I like to do for the kids. It’s always such a wonderful surprise for the kids, and many of these I’ll enjoy right along with them. These are mostly middle-grade books, and some of these are for summer reading. You can find these on Goodreads by clicking the image. Let’s see what we have!

Red Rover by Christopher Krovatin

Blurb:

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.

Soon man’s best friend has turned into Amy’s worst nightmare.The problem isn’t Rover’s bark or his bite – it’s even creepier than that. This dog’s purpose is evil . . . and if’s waiting to be unleashed.

This week has been slow for me in the reading department as I fell into a reading slump last week. Believe it or not, I had two DNF’s straightaway and then couldn’t figure out what to move on with next. Here’s what I’m reading now.

Book Review: Among the Beasts & Briars by Ashley Poston #BookReview #Fantasy #Fiction

Among the Beasts & Briars by Ashley Poston

Blurb:

Cerys is safe in the kingdom of Aloriya.

Here there are no droughts, disease, or famine, and peace is everlasting. It has been this way for hundreds of years, since the first king made a bargain with the Lady who ruled the forest that borders the kingdom. But as Aloriya prospered, the woods grew dark, cursed, and forbidden. Cerys knows this all too well: when she was young, she barely escaped as the woods killed her friends and her mother. Now Cerys carries a small bit of the curse—the magic—in her blood, a reminder of the day she lost everything. The most danger she faces now, as a gardener’s daughter, is the annoying fox who stalks the royal gardens and won’t leave her alone.

Music Monday: Queen “I Want to Break Free” 1984 #MusicMonday #Queen #Music #IWantToBreakFree

Music Monday

This meme was created by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song that you really like and share it on Monday.

Last time I shared:

London Grammar “Strong”


This week’s share:

Queen

“I Want to Break Free”

This is one of my favorite songs by Queen. I was reading an article over the weekend about how this video was banned in the U.S. and possibly other countries because of the ‘drag’ and ‘homosexuality’, which wasn’t acceptable at the time. It’s thought-provoking, especially when you compare it to videos today that actually contain harmful content and will never be banned. They don’t even compare. Hope you all enjoy this one.
