Book 230 of 500!!

I actually saw this book in the bathroom of a school I was subbing at. I started reading it and couldn’t put it down, and almost missed the time I was supposed to be in the classroom! LOL! So I told my dad about out and added it to my Amazon wishlist and he bought it for me, for this past Christmas! It’s called True Facts That Sound Like Bullshit: 500 insane but true facts that will shock and impress your friends by Shane Carley! They are very interesting! Some are weird, stupid, disgusting, shocking, and hilarious! I couldn’t put it down and finished it quickly!! Now to try to talk my dad into reading it!!

This Gwen Cooper short story was actually an excerpt from another writer named Ingrid King who also wrote about her cats. This story was called Buckley’s Story! It was a very sweet, and sad, and cute story. It made me cry, but it was a nice story too. Just makes me think of my own kitties….

Book 224 of 500!

It has been a LONG time since I last recorded a book, and in reality this book should count for 10 books! Longest book I’ve ever ready! But so interesting and informative that it was worth the long read! It was called Adolf Hitler by John Toland. I’ve always been fascinated with WW2 and the Holocaust and somehow I got my dad on bored, he found this book, and even read it too! And he was never a reader!

Books 222 and 223 of 500!

Both of these are short stories by Gwen Cooper called The Bells and Just Beclaws. The first one is about putting bell collars on their 2 new kittens so that their blind kitty Homer, who was much older could hear when they were coming and know that they might attack/play with him! The second one was about an outside kitty who had claws and wanted pets, but then would grab her and draw blood every time! Both very good and humorous!

Book 221 of 500!

This book was called Makeovers by Marcia written by Claudia Mills. I got this book free at the library. It was good, about a girl in Junior High and they had to do a service project and she got stuck at a retirement home, then ended up loving it and the women loved getting makeovers done by her!

This book was called Nightmares by Jason Segal and Kirsten Miller. This was a great book! About a nightmare land in your dreams, but if you are really scared you can get transported there! Also the nightmares in your dreams became real in this place, it was really interesting and creative!

This book was called The Legacy Chronicles: Killing Giants by Pittacus Lore. Another book in my dad’s and my favorite book series I Am Number 4!!!! These books are amazing, so quick to read because they are so good! I hope they never stop putting out books, but I know someday it’ll end, what a sad day indeed….

Book 204 of 500!

This book was the 2nd of a series, that both my dad and I read the first one. This one was called The Rule Of Many by Ashley and Leslie Saunders. It followed the twin girls and what happened after they had escaped Texas and the US and went to Canada to join a resistance group that watned to get rid of the Rule of One! It was a very exciting book and my dad and I can’t wait for the 3rd book to come out and possibly a tv show/movie!!

Book 203 of 500!

This book was called Chasing Lincoln’s Killer by James L. Swanson. This book was very good and very informative! Lincoln is one of my 2 favorite president’s and he happens to be president during 1 of my 2 favorite wars to read about! I hate that he was murdered, and it would have been cool to see what all he could have done during his presidency if he hadn’t been. But this book followed the exact outline of what happened, and what exactly the killer and the other guys who aided the killer did before, during and after Lincoln’s killer. Super good book!! Very interesting!

Book 202 of 500!

This book was called The Sisters Club: Rule of Three by Megan McDonald. Again this was probably a tween book AND it was also a book in a series, but sometimes are library has books they are giving away for free and I just take what looks interesting to me and don’t realize they it’s a book in a series, but luckily you can figure out what is going on! This one was about 3 young sisters and them just getting through every day life!
