Review: Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

My Thoughts: I don’t generally gravitate toward the heavier contemporaries. I don’t really know why, I guess because when I read a contemporary I’m looking for something lighter? Anyway, I don’t read heavier ones often, I tend to be pretty picky when it comes to the more serious ones. That being said, I’m really glad I read Letters to the Lost! Juliet’s mother died and she is coping by writing her letters at her grave but who […]

TTT: Top Ten Books I’d Have On My Classroom Shelf

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week it’s the back to school edition! I decided to go with top ten books I’d have on my classroom shelf! I have always been a huge reader, since I was a little kid. I was constantly looking for new things to read because I’d already devoured everything I knew about. I loved seeing what other kids were reading and […]

Favorite Things in July: We went on an overnight backpacking camping trip! It was a lot of fun with beautiful weather! You’d be surprised how much a 20 lb pack starts to weigh on you three hours into hiking though… Ha! Packed just the essentials but of course I stashed […]

Audiobook Reviews: The Queen of Attolia, The King of Attolia, Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner

Posted August 1, 2017 by Wendy in Reviews / 0 Comments

The Sound: As stated in my previous review of the first book, The Thief, I love Steve West! Will always be a fave narrator for me — so much emotion in his narrating! The Story: The switch from first person to third person POV caught me a bit off guard but it is necessary in this sequel as there are so many different things going on in different locations. I don’t think I disliked the POV switch […]
