It was mildly entertaining with some funny moments that I enjoyed

This book had some highs and lows, but overall, I liked it. I thought it was cute how the little boy couldn’t fall asleep and all the things he tried. It was pretty funny how he kept calling for his mom and it reminded me of my kids. Even though...

I love a book about sisters.

In the Waves was a lot shorter than I thought it would be. Yes, I knew it was a picture book, but I was hoping for a bit more. I loved that it was about two sisters and using your imagination though. The theme is family-friendly and it's also a...

An adorable and funny read. Perfect for new siblings.

This book was just too cute and funny. I love books that feature siblings. Of course this would’ve been even better if it featured sisters since I have all girls, but it’s nice to see a variety every now and then since I tend to only buy books featuring girls,...

Hilarious aliens and fun characters made for a very entertaining read.

What I Loved: While reading this I had to completely let go of the fact that I was reading it as an adult. Being in the “kid mindset” is a must for a book like this because there’s a lot of stuff that’s pretty unbelievable, besides the fact that there...

I loved every minute of this adorable and fun book!

What I Loved: The characters were easily the best part of this book. It was so much fun seeing all of our favorite Disney villains, their children, and even some of our favorite Disney heroes/heroines. These poor kids have to live in the infamous shadow of their parents and they...

A very cute story. Simple and to the point.

I always love a story where the emphasis is on how special a baby is to their parents. Marr did it in a very cute and simple way. The illustrations were also simple, but had a very classic look to them that adults can appreciate, even if the children can't...

A great way to introduce The Baby-Sitters Club to a new generation.

I know of Raina and her work from her previous books that my daughter also loves, like Sisters and Smile. They’re such fun books and this one is no different. I really love the illustrations and I love that the publisher decided to reprint it in color. It’s very tween-friendly...

It was nice seeing how this series ends, even if the book itself didn’t have much going on.

What I Loved: I really liked getting to know Nick, Kevin, and Cass more. They each have a certain quality that sets them apart from everyone else and it was interesting seeing them handle this bot war. I enjoyed the fledgling romance between Cass and Farryn and I liked seeing...

The characters were fascinating and the story, compelling.

What I Loved: I loved meeting all of the other half-dragons and learning about their unique abilities and quirks. Seraphina’s “garden of the grotesque” was pretty interesting and those times when we were her head were pretty fascinating. The characters, both good and bad, were what made this book for...

A refreshing tale with one heck of a couple that sets it apart from all other Dystopians out today.

What I Loved: Ivy. Plain and simple. That girl is just all kinds of awesome and I admired her character so much. Her loyalty was so unwavering, even when it was detrimental to her, she would not budge. And I appreciated her views on how their society was shaped and...

Finch was quite a character and one I really enjoyed getting to know

What I Loved: I really liked being inside Finch’s head. He was such an interesting character and watching his development and subsequent unraveling was what kept me going throughout this book. Although I wasn’t too keen on relating his condition to what happens to him in the end, it was...

What started out a little weak turned into a pretty decent read with a strong ending.

What I Loved: The best part of this book was easily the Pandoras. I loved them all. Such fun, interesting creatures. Their relationship with their humans reminded me of Pokemon, that’s how I picture their dynamic in my head. Tella definitely reminds me of Ash, how she cares for her...

A detailed and intricate tale of magic and love

What I Loved: This was my first “genie” book, so I really liked exploring this world and how the author wove it into modern day society. These creatures are basically from another world and I liked how fascinated some of them were with our world’s technology, it was funny. It...

A pleasantly surprising good read that I devoured.

What I Loved: I loved this strange desert world and its cast of characters. I haven’t read anything like it was the setting was refreshing. I loved Jayden in particular though because she’s just a good person. She’s cares so much for her family, despite them not really thinking about...

Such an adorable and fun book!

I loved this book so much! I'm a big fan of sibling books and this worked out perfectly for me because I recently had another baby so my older daughter, who is 4, just became a big sister. The timing was perfect! I read this to her one time, and...
