Reading Prompt Recs: Banned Books

Reading Prompt Recs: Banned Books

This post is part of my series of reading prompt recommendations for those of us who are a tiny bit stumped on what to read. I’m sharing TBR suggestions for all of the prompts that I can (except for those like the “recommended by a friend” or “read during our Summer readathon”).

7 Festive Holiday Romances That Will Make Great Gifts

The air is crisp and smells like fall, the leaves have nearly all fallen to coat the ground, and snow is on the horizon. That means it’s officially acceptable to talk about holiday romances!! While I may have promised the hubby that I’ll wait to put the Christmas tree up until the day after Thanksgiving, I make no such promise when it comes to books and movies. Here are a few festive holiday romance mini reviews, from books I’ve read over the past couple years, that are sure to get you in the Christmas spirit (or stuff a loved one’s stocking)!

The Class Trip From the Black Lagoon – Mike Thaler

The Class Trip From the Black Lagoon – Mike Thaler

Last week, the little minions had conferences and we walked out of Girl Minion’s with a book from her teacher, one that I remember reading as a child. THE CLASS TRIP FROM THE BLACK LAGOON by Mike Thaler is a short, imaginative chapter book that’s perfect for 2nd or 3rd graders. This review is all courtesy of Girl Minion (and she was so excited to read this that she finished it the same night as her conferences­čśŐ).

Book Review: His Wicked Ways by Melissa Foster

Let’s talk about Melissa Foster’s newest book baby, HIS WICKED WAYS (out today!). If you read my review of her last Wicked book – all about Blaine’s younger sister, Madigan – you know I didn’t think too highly of him. Blaine is stubborn and takes charge (even when he shouldn’t) and puts his foot in his mouth on a regular basis … but HIS WICKED WAYS shows that he also has a heart of gold. Under that hard shell is a soft teddy bear. But don’t listen to me … I’ll let Blaine speak for himself.
