I enjoyed this sequel of the Snow White and Evil Queen retelling much more than Dao‘s first book. The MC, Princess Jade, was much more relatable than the Empress (obviously). And, I really liked all the folklore in here, which reminded me of the ones my mom read to me as a child.

The Magic Misfits | Neil Patrick Harris

Full of humor and magic tricks, Harris has presented a fun middle grade book. I was engaged throughout, and it almost had the Lemony Snicket feeling of slight snarkiness in the storytelling. Good read! My #WrittenByAnActor read for #MiddleGrade #BBRC .

raeintheworld My eight year old loves these! I think there are three now. 24h
Librarybelle @raeintheworld Nice! They seem perfect for kids who love magic. 24h
LibrarianRyan I hope it was written by an author. If it‘s a ghost that could be really cool. Or maybe a possessed typewriter. Okay. Sorry for the funnin‘ glad you liked it. 21h

This is a dragon (who look like dinosaurs) fantasy about a kingdom where the princess daughter has to marry and consummate the marriage to her father in order to pass power to the next ruler. Uuummmmm UGHHHHHH.

I will not be recommending this to friends, however, the artwork was amazing, and I can not wait to see what the author comes up with next.

This book kept me listening. It was a cozy mystery with a bit of romance and a lot of intriguer. I finished book one and now really need book two as the mystery is not solved, it has only gotten bigger! Hopefully Josie stays in the good graces of the King, and finds our fiend in book two: the Echo of Broken Dreams.

LibrarianRyan heheheheheheheheheheheheehehe

hey lady, do you have an address I can send to yet. I know your not in your house yet, but as my #BBRC partner, I was going to send Halloween and Christmas cards at least.
ljuliel I was waiting for the joke in this one. I started sweating bullets for a minute when I kept reading. Since I‘m almost 62, I was wondering if I could hold the 2 ten pound ones for very long.... I think I can handle the empty bags. 😁 3d

I love how the author threads a boy‘s love for a dog into this #middlegrade 9/11 story. An important addition to a classroom shelf or elementary library.

The Water Dancer: A Novel | Ta-Nehisi Coates

Wow, I raced through this book this week. I didn‘t want to stop!

I felt for the characters, and there was a bit of a surprise towards to end I wasn‘t expecting at all. I don‘t want to say too much... but this was a beautifully told story about people I cared about. I would have listened to several more hours of it!

Jee_HookedOnBookz I really enjoyed this too! Glad you did as well! ❤️ 3d

I met my reading goal for this year! I hope this doesn't mean I have to stop reading until 2020. Or maybe I just can't *finish* any books until January 1. I can probably swing that.

RvnclawWhovian That‘s awesome! I think I‘m going to fall woefully short haha. This year has been a year, that‘s for sure 4d

ImperfectCJ @MatchlessMarie I was saved this year by the #BBRC which includes 26 picture books. Without that challenge and taking into account that my children are past read-aloud picture book stage, I'm going to have to set a much lower goal for 2020. 😆 3d
ImperfectCJ @Hooked_on_books But if I'm not going to get more confetti, it hardly seems worth it. 😉 3d
sprainedbrain Awesome! 🎉🎉🎉 I think you can keep reading, but I will have to check the rules on GR. 😂 3d

As always this was a well written beginning biography. I love that the series is branching out to names not well known by all such as Zaha Hadid a famous architect who passed away just a few years ago. As always I love the pictures in the back of the real person, and just wish that in this case, they had added a few real pictures of her buildings as well.
