It was one of those around good reads, that I was able to sit and read without over thinking or analyzing anything, which was enjoyable to me. Sometimes it's nice to just sit and read a book like that. Plus, this book whisked me away on a trip to Europe. had a Prince, some romance, and an exciting adventure. What's not to like about that, right!?

An outrageously hilarious epic adventure from master story teller Neil Gaiman. Fortunately, The Milk is an action packed, humor filled story that readers of all ages will enjoy. It's the kind of story I can see Dr. Who telling his children.....
The tables have turned! Normally as parents we enjoy the outrageous stories are children creatively craft, or maybe we still remember the stories we told our parents. This time, Gaiman has crafted a laugh out loud, imaginative story a father tells his children about his epic adventure he went on to get his children milk for their morning cereal. From space ships, to aliens, pirates, intergalactic dinosaurs, a volcano and more, this is one story I'd recommend adding to your book collections.
This is a story that readers have all ages will love. This is an easy to read, laugh out book that even the most reluctant reader will find themselves enjoying. This is a story that's great for reading out loud, and one even young children can enjoy. Skottie Young's illustrations are the perfect addition to this fantastic read. (less)

This is one of those timeless stories that will never get old, no matter how many times you read it. I LOVED IT! This is my favorite read of 2014 so far. The Kiss of Deception is one of those reads that has it all. Mary E. Pearson's writing pulled me into her story effortlessly, made me fall in love with her characters easily and hungrily left me wanting so much more when I finished the book. .......................
I could go on and one about this book, but I'll summarize why you should pick up this book. In summary- If you're looking for a book about a girl who takes her destiny into her own hands, and wants to marry someone who loves her and she loves him, vs marrying out of duty for kingdom, then pick this book up. If you're looking for a book that does NOT have a love triangle, then pick up this book. If you're looking for a book that has two exciting male characters, pick up this book. If you're looking for a book that sweeps you off your feet, has you anxiously awaiting it's sequel, and makes you want to go back and re-read it again, pick up this book. In short, I LOVED THIS BOOK and HIGHLY recommend you pick it up. And yes, this book is going on my all time favorites shelf!

The Punkydoos Take The Stage is one of those books that is just cheerful, and upbeat both with the story and the illustrations. I really enjoyed it.
Lexi-Lou is a kid who is many things. She's a superhero, chef, secret agent and a rock star! She loves to sing. She sings and dances all the time. I liked that instead of telling her to stop having so much fun, her big brother asked her when she having her concert. Lexi-Lou sets up to find her band. It doesn't take Lexi-Lou long to find her friends who like her, love to play music. Together they form their band, The Punkdoos. After some practicing together, they perform their first concert.
As an added bonus, this book not only includes the song The Punkydoos sing, it also comes with a CD! Kids will love singing along and dancing with The Punkydoos when they finish reading the book. I really enjoyed the story. This is one that would make a great kid to Pre-K & Kinder aged kids. The illustrations alone are fabulous. This is one of those books that makes reading children's picture books fun. (less)
This is a great series to engage beginning readers with. Each book in the series is easy to read. Young readers will enjoy looking through the pages of their favorite cartoon brought to life in each book. The illustrations match those of each cartoon series, making it easy for kids to recognize their favorite characters. Whether it's going on an adventure with Jake & The Neverland Pirates, finding out which toy Doc McStuffins will be helping today, meeting Sofia's newest friend or checking out Minnie Mouse's new bows, fans of Disney Jr will love reading about their favorite character's new stories.
I like that while this is a easy to carry around box set, each story is an individual book. The box makes it convenient to store all six books in, and the handle on the top of the box set makes it easy for little hands to carry their stories around with them. Whether on at home or on the go, this series is worth picking up when it's out later this summer. (less)

I don't know about you guys, but even as a kid, and especially now as a parent, I love it when I can sit down and read about the history of something that interests me. Not only is there history like when and were soccer was invented, but how it evolved over the years. There's also information about some of the biggest names is the world wide sport, as well some of the most important high lights about the sport that have taking place through out the world. There's plenty of World Cup talk too, which makes this another one of those reads that is worth picking up, especially with all the exciting surrounding the World Cup games right now.
This fact tracker is full of pictures, history, and includes a lot of fun intriguing easy to read information that's both exciting and informative. I'd highly recommend picking up Soccer on Sunday, and grabbing this Soccer fact tracker to go along with it. The nice thing about these two books, is you can read them in any order you'd like. Whether your a fan of the sport, or the book series, I'd highly recommend picking up both books. These books make great additions for personal libraries, as well as classroom and school libraries.

This is a great addition to the Divergent series. FOUR: A Divergent Collection is a collection of novellas from Four's point of view. If you already didn't love Four, you now. If you already did, you'll love him even more. I enjoyed getting to understand Four more. With this collection of novellas, Veronica Roth gives his side of the story. Fans will see what Four's motivation was for changing Fractions, why he wanted to be a trainer, the corruption between fractions, and his first impression of Tris. Oh yeah, it's a great read.

This is one MG graphic novel worth picking up! I'm not usually a big graphic novel fan, but I really enjoyed this book. I really enjoyed that this book is made up of the various characters's dairies. I'm torn on who I liked more, because each character was fun to read about, though I think Crabby is one that made me laugh the most. You know it's good when you end up picking up a book you received a day earlier, and are up at 1 am laughing hysterically at some of the comics on the pages.

They're fiercely protective, loyal, and love just as fiercely was they can fight. Trenton Maddox seems to be the less aggressive one of the brothers, though this boy certainly knows how to play dirty (in a very good way) when it comes to winning over Cami. Their love story is one heck of a swoon worthy disaster, and it was oh so fabulous reading about them. Before I go on, I have to mention, HOLY PLOT TWIST batman! McGuire threw in one epic twist I didn't see coming, and it was awesome!! This is definitely a book fans of the McGuire's Maddox Brothers will want to pick up! Now I'm off to go read the rest of the books in this series.
