I loved this fanciful middle grade novel. Everyone in Emma's family has done something amazing. She has spies, scientists, and musicians in her family. In this story Emma has to complete her Destiny but sometimes that's easier said than done. This story about friendship and family was so beautifully done. I loved every second of it. Highly recommend.

I really liked this Percy Jackson companion novel. I love the world that Rick Riordan created, so it's fun to get back into it with these little side stories.

Just finished this fantastic, heartfelt memoir by Hannah Hart. I didn't really know much about Hannah Hart before listening to this book. I'm really glad that I saw this on Audible and decided to give it a go. Now I really want to read My Drunk Kitchen and watch her YouTube Challenge. Highly recommend.

This was a really interesting collection of poetry. The author explores the themes of heartbreak, love, wonder, and happiness. Each poem is either written on paper or written on a drawing. I was really moved while reading these poems. This book is a beautiful piece of art.

I enjoyed this book very much on audio. Ruth Reichl was the food critic for the New York Times. In order to remain anonymous, Ruth dresses up in different disguises. Really interesting look into the world of a good critic. Highly recommend.

Screwtape is a senior tempter in the service of "Our Father Below". This story is a collection of letters to his nephew Wormwood who is a novice demon attempting to secure the damnation of a young man's soul. The Screwtape Letters are a story of temptation and the ability to overcome it. Very interesting look at Christianity and highly enjoyable.

I know I'm late to the party on this book as well. I really enjoyed being back in the Harry Potter universe even if it was a bit different. I can only imagine what this play is like on stage. I also can see how some people would not like this book.

This hilarious book mirrors what happens in meetings with some interesting (bad) advice that you actually might want to use. I really enjoyed this book and read many sections aloud to coworkers and friends. Kinda wanna try some of these ideas in my next meeting.

Wow this book was amazing. It is so powerful and a great way to get children to start thinking about diversity and social justice.

What a fascinating book about the concept of public shaming. Each chapter deals with a different case of shaming and how the shame effected each person involved. I listened to this on audio and felt like I had to keep driving around so I could listen longer.

Haven't read a mystery/thriller in a while. I really enjoyed this book and was hooked from the beginning. I enjoyed the fact that the main character is the chief medical examiner because I feel like in many thrillers/mysteries I read the protagonist is a cop. Cannot wait to read more from Patricia Cornwell and this series.

BookClubShmookClub I'm excited to read more too! It ended up being more than just a standard paperback page-turner, I'm reading it right now and loving it. 3y

What a beautiful, heartbreaking, hilarious book. Mim Malone is forced to move to a place she hates, Mosquitoland (Mississippi). One day she decides to road trip it back to Cleveland where her mom now lives. There are so many characters she meets along the way and this is a story of friendship and family. I cannot wait to read David Arnold's next book. Highly recommend!

This is the 12th book in the series and boy does it not disappoint. Harry and the gang take on the red court vampires to save a child. I'm glad that next book in the series has already been published because with an ending like that I need know immediately what's going to happen next.
