Recent New Releases

Brindlefox* (picture book)... This is a great story about grumpiness and prickly attitudes, what's going on under the surface, and choosing to make things better. Lots of great discussion brought on by this one! 

Home is Calling* (picture book)... We happen to be in butterfly mode around here right now so this book arrived with perfect timing. We all loved learning about the monarch migration! The illustrations are great, too.

Letters from my Sister* (historical fiction)... Heartwarming, emotionally gripping, and full of family dynamic issues which I always love to see on the page!  Valerie Fraser is an author I will continue to watch. 

Lucky Girl* (nonfiction)... Now this is a fascinating memoir! Scout has shared stories about her heart breaks and triumphs to encourage and inspire her readers. 

Race to Krakatoa* (middle grade)... This is book 2 of the Inkwell Chronicles and was just as delightful and exciting as the first! This was a hit for me and an even bigger hit for my middle grade reader! We semi-patiently await book 3. 

Voice of the Ancient* (historical fiction)... This is book one of a new series, set during the time of King Saul. Biblical fiction is just not my favorite but I do understand the appeal and now I especially understand the appeal of Connilyn Cossette's writing. Definitely a good one for fans of Biblical fiction! 

Who Do You Want to be When You Grow Up?*... I love the massage of this picture book, a focus on your character and gifts for WHO you will be rather than the typical message of WHAT career path you will take.  Cute illustrations, too! 

Woven* (nonfiction, parenting)... This parenting book talks a lot about moralism (think legalism). It's a fine line to walk. I didnt agree with everything 100% but it made me think and reflect which is always a good thing! 

* I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review. 


  1. These look like some great reads! Lucky Girl, especially catches my eye.


Thanks so much for your comments! I always read them, don't always have time to answer quickly. Sorry about that!
