Get the Kids Back to School Ready with NatGeo Kids and a Safari!


I love NatGeo! They have the best books for kids who love nonfiction. If your little one doesn’t like to read or only likes to look at the pictures or will only read nonfiction, National Geographic has something for them. So here’s an idea, why not celebrate the end of summer with a Safari Party […]

Akarnae: The Medoran Chronicles by Lynette Noni


There are so many things to like about Akarnae.  I like the idea of a female heroine thrown into a situation not knowing what to expect and able to take whatever adventures without whining too much. So Alex is thrown into this school for gifted people.  She doesn’t know she has a gift and she’s […]

Courage and Other Demons by Jill Daughtery


If you’re a fan of ill fated romances like Romeo and Juliet or Edward and Bella then Courage and Other Demons is the book for you. The only thing I don’t like about the book is the cover.  The cover doesn’t give you any clues as to the goodies that’s inside.  Inside CAOD you’ll find […]

C. Lee McKenzie, author, of Sudden Secrets sits down for an interview


I LOVE interviews! They’re a chance to get to know authors better and see how their minds work. Today I’m interviewing C. Lee McKenzie who wrote Sudden Secrets.  You might not know this but I’m pretty sure the C stands for Chariot and the Lee is short for for Leeks, those cute little oniony things […]
