I started off loving this book, but lost interest about half way through. The story is told entirely from lists which I found very unique & the humor throughout was entertaining. The more I got to know the MC, Dan, the less I liked or connected with him as a person & the way all of his problems get solved at the end just didn‘t quite fit. Again, I loved the concept of a story told using only lists - but it needs more depth or a more relatable MC.

I loved so much of this book! Lovely and moving poetry that is perfect for those who are finding their own identity in a society that loves to place ppl into specified pegs that we simply don‘t fit inside. Part i & iii were my favorites!! I didn‘t connect with part ii and it‘s content disrupted the flow a bit, but other than that I LOVED the rest! I will be buying a copy of this for my personal poetry bookshelf! Go check it out 🖤

I read this with my 4th grade kiddo and we loved the colorful fall themed illustrations. Overall it was a cute storybook, but the story didn't feel very original and didn't have enough humor to truly keep my silly boy interested enough. It was a so-so rating for the both of us. It would be a good read for younger elementary kids learning about what it means to work in a team.

Read with my kiddo; we both really enjoyed it together! He rated it a 3 star, because he wished it had more funny parts. He really enjoyed the 'snakebutt' joke & was actively involved in the story as a whole. Books such as these, that show non-traditional family make-ups are so important to share w/ our children & should be integrated into every family bookshelf, in my opinion. A solid 4.5 star children's book that I recommend! LGBTQ friendly

There was less action and suspense than what I wanted from this book. But it was a completely unique tale mixing zombie apocalypse with post civil war historical fiction. I loved the narrator of the audiobook and thought she did a good service to this book. The storyline felt like it took a while to take off and the climax felt anticlimactic considering the zombie premise.

This book was mediocre in my opinion. The characters all felt a little flat and I just never could quite connect with them. It was an easy read and I liked pieces of it, especially the pro LGBT angle. But the world building and plot just felt “meh.” I don‘t think I‘ll be continuing the series.

A quick historical fiction tale about an 11 yo boy that accidentally finds himself amid battle during the American revolution. Written in easy language for younger elementary kids to absorb easily & focuses on a lesser known battle from the war - The Battle of Brooklyn (aka The Battle of Long Island).

Bloody, but an epic fantasy 📖. The writing style took a little while for me 2 get used 2. I def. didn‘t get all my questions answered regarding the diff types of magic &the Gods- but Im ok with that. None of the twists shocked me, but I found myself immersed in this new world. Excited to see this debut author grow &will be reading the next in the series! (I did not think the MC was as badass as this cover indicated...but 🖤 the monster.)

kellyann28 Oh I love the lettering on the actual book! 2mo

Sooo I‘m reading these aloud to my son for his first time into the wizarding world. He about lost it when Arthur Weasley almost died while on watch for the Order. I‘m worried about how he‘ll handle the “ending” of this book if you know what I mean........ any momma tips for helping him handle his first loved character being killed off?

GondorGirl Let him be sad about it. The worst thing for me is when people try to tell you not to mourn a fictional character (not that you'd do that!). I'm not a parent myself, but it seems like the ability to be able to emotionally connect with books is a great type of empathy to foster in a kid. 2mo
Kerrioke I agree with @GondorGirl I think it‘s important to foster that type of empathy in kids. 2mo
MoonWitch94 I agree. Let him feel what he‘s going to feel. I think it‘s part of the experience of reading the books—to mourn right along with the characters. My brother is 12 years younger than me. When we saw the 6th film together in the theaters, he balled his eyes out & was furious that I didn‘t warn him about Dumbledore (he was a book behind in his reading at the time). But that experience is one he actually claims helped him process death as an adult now 2mo

Super random but I had a dream last night I was marking up a book for our lmpbc Group. I got to the last 20 pages and realized I had already read the book and had previously marked it up (just the last pages tho) with 2 different colored pens than the one I‘d been using! Haha it was weird & oddly stressful

Covering the Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party, & the 1st meeting of the Continental Congress. This is a fun way 2explore history w/ kids. I like how the personalities of the founding fathers shine & make them each unique characters. The plot is silly enough w/ the time traveling horse & antics that kids have a lot of fun alongside learning historical events. Political feelings for the author aside, this is an accurate portrayal of US history

Sadly this book missed the mark for me. A few poems resonated with me, but as a whole I found this book of poetry lacking. I enjoy when poetry books have a flow that resonates with the authors life & to feel their despairs and triumphs along with them. The storyline within this one felt jumbled and the moment the poems started to get deeper they bounced back into randomness. Such an alluring title, but I won‘t be reading more.

CityOfAngelsNeverSleeps I loved this book, but I'm a poetry guru. I'm sorry you didn't like it. You may enjoy Her, Him, or Journals From The Sea. 2mo

An adorable historical fiction tale about a teenage girl traveling from CA to the Woodstock musical festival. I found this read refreshing & appreciated the fact that it was appropriate for all readers. Many books focused on this venue shine a light on sex, drugs, & rock and roll. I was pleased to see the Cross Country went deeper into different opinions & experiences with the war & how all decisions impacted different people differently.
