We have this growing near the back of the house in the landscaping. I wish it were in a better location so we could see it more.

This Week’s Reads: The Princess Bride – Smoke and Mirrors – The Graveyard Book – Horses & Ponies #amreading #books #bookblog

Hello all! How’s life going? I’m pleased to announce that this week has been easier for all of us. My daughter is feeling better after contracting Covid-19; although, she does still have some strange symptoms. Luckily, they haven’t been debilitating. What she’s dealing with now seems to be lingering headaches, lack of taste and smell, fatigue, and coldness. She should be able to be free of quarantine in the next few days. I’d like to thank everyone who commented and offered well wishes last week. It was much-needed.

Because my daughter was feeling good enough to get back to reading a few days ago, they’re just about to finish up The Graveyard Book.

The kids have enjoyed this book. Unfortunately, I was distracted and lost and therefore gave up on it. I’m still trying to listen in to see what’s happening. They’re reading the audio along with the physical. The story is basically about a boy who’s dropped off at a graveyard by his dying mother, and he’s left to be raised by the ghosts who reside there. A very interesting story, but one that requires attention I couldn’t give this week.

Book Review: Cold Hearted (Villains, #8) by Serena Valentino #FairyTale #Retelling #2021RetellingReadingChallenge

Cold Hearted by Serena Valentino

Blurb:

This was supposed to be her happily ever after…

It’s a familiar tale: A kind and beautiful young girl, reeling from loss. A doting father, frantic to bring a mother’s love back into his daughter’s life. And the selfish, cruel woman who insinuates herself into that family―a woman so unfeeling, so cold hearted, that when her new husband dies, she makes the girl a servant in her own home.But who is that evil stepmother, that icy lady of the house? How did she become so closed off that, in the face of a child’s grief, she thought only to seek wealth and power for herself and her abhorrent daughters? Before that fateful ball, before the glass slipper and the prince, there was another story―a story of love and grief, of hope and of dreams dashed. It is the story of Lady Tremaine.
