Just finished this one and greatly enjoyed it! The illustrations are amazing and the story one of a long building friendship that nearly was not. It is a story of how people are quick to judge and how society thrives on misinformation, power and greed. It is also a story full of emotion and satire. A unique but incredibly clever tale!

Perfect Season | Tim Green

This was another good one by Tim Green, though I have to admit that this main character was not my favorite. The storyline was good, but the main character was a bit to into himself.

The Summer Retreat | Sheila Roberts

As always, Sheila Robert's writes an extraordinary story that I completely immersed myself into and loved! This is such a great series and I love how each one focuses on a different character that we have met in a previous book of the series. A very quick and fun read and exactly what I needed to brighten my down days!!

tracey38 Such a pretty picture. Love the flowers! 1mo

A different take on Avengers. It was a quick fun read. The illustrations were awesome. Still liking the original way better, but this is good for the newest generation I think.

Fantastic!! Loved this story and characters so much. A bit on the freaky side in the aspect that this could very well become a real end-of-the-world scenario but that is what drew me in as well. Also loved that it takes place in IA so I know many of the towns memtioned!

DebReads4fun I loved this book! She has a sequel coming out, can‘t wait! 2mo
aprilpohren @DebReads4fun Do you know when it is suppose to come out? I can't wait!! 2mo

Palimpsest @aprilpohren I love good illustrations. I‘ve stacked this because it looks really intriguing. That‘s one thing I love about Litsy so much is that I see posts about books I might never have known about otherwise! 2mo

I try to avoid books and movies that make me sad and/or cry. There is so much sadness in the world that I want to avoid it when seeking entertainment. A Star is Born about killed me - heart and soul!! 😭

TheSpineView Yes and no. It depends on the individual book. 2mo
CrowCAH I avoid war movies, cause I always cry. But the answer is really no. If a book makes me cry, I know it did it‘s job, made me feel for the characters and the story, I lost myself in the book. 2mo
Crazeedi I like books that create emotion within me. That's how I know it was well written, crying, laughing, doesn't matter! 2mo

I just finished this a couple days ago and loved it! It took me a bit to read, but only because of my lack of reading time. I couldn't wait to get back to it when I had to put it down! This is #2 and the series just keeps getting better! I found myself so emotionally wrapped up in this that it was crazy! I can't wait to read #3!

Zach and I finished this one for our March Mom and Son read along. I loved it! This is Zach's favorite series and I can totally see why! Great characters and a great story. I love how there is so much emphasis placed on family and moral values! This #5 of the series and #6 will probably be the next read. Zach said he wants to finish this series before moving on to something else. Who am I to argue? Lol!

I want to thank you again for all of the #litsylove. You have no idea how much it means! I deeply apologize that I have not gotten anything out yet. My daughter was in a car accident where she got t-bone. Luckily she only had her 3rd and 4th vertebrae twisted, so she is getting treated for that. Hubby, son and I are sicker than sick with sinus infection. Ugh! No excuses, just craziness! I hope to get some mail out in the next few days!
