I had forgotten to bring Kathryn a book to read in Bensenville last night, so we were looking for one, my dad found this one: Pumpkins From The Sky by Julia Van Nutt. It was a short book, I was reading it to make sure I could read it to Kathryn. It was a very cute story. And the reason it was in our house is because it had a pig in it! My mom’s favorite animal!!!!
I found this book in my bedroom in Bensenville, probably read it in high school. It’s called Sabrina The Teenage Witch: Salem’s Tails: Cat TV by Mark Dubowski. I did love this show growing up, and loved the black kitty Salem, so it’s no wonder I had this book, it was a super fast read, but I enjoyed it, and it brought back memories of my childhood!
My dad bought me this book on my kindle for Christmas called Hiding In Death’s Shadow: How I Survived The Holocaust by Allen Brater. Obviously I enjoy reading survivor stories of the Holocaust and it was cool to read something different, this boy didn’t go to a Concentration camp, but his family did, and he had to survive a different way, but surviving in the forest! Was it easier or harder or better than a camp, it doesn’t matter, either way it was a horrible situation and he was able to overcome it and survive!!
This book was called Chappaquiddick: The Real Story by James ET Lange and Katherine DeWitt, Jr. I’ve always been interested in the Kennedy’s and especially in what really happened at Chappaquiddick. This book did give me all the details and information I would have liked to know, but it also was extremely repetitive, and had a lot of stuff in it that wasn’t necessary, so it made it a very long real, and sometimes boring after reading the details of what actually happened.
This book was called Dear America: Standing In The Light: The Captive Diary of Catherine Carey Logan: Delaware Valley, Pennsylvania, 1763. It’s about a young girl and her brother who were captured by Indians, and lived with them for a year before being reunited with their parents, and how at first they were so upset, but then they came to love the Indians, and see them as people just like them. It’s another book I found in my room in Bensenville, that I had read when I was younger, but enjoyed re-reading now as an adult!
This book was A Bookshop in Berlin by Francoise Frenkel. It’s a memoir found in France about a woman who was Jewish born in Poland, but opened up a French book store in Berlin and then World War 2 broke out and she was able to make it to Paris, and it’s about her story of where she was, how she hid, about her escapes, and what happened to her during the war time!
This book was called If You Tell: A True Story of Murder, Family Secrets, and the Unbreakable Bond of Sisterhood by Gregg Olsen. This book was so good, and yet so horrible, and so intriguing and so terrifying!! I could not put it down, it was a super long book that I read really fast. The worst part is that this is a true story, that took place during my life, and it’s hard to believe that this horrible situation was happening while I was living a great life!! So sad, that people are really like this, and can hurt the people they love and even their own children in this horrific way……
This book was called Hitler’s Daughter by Jackie French. I had actually read it before many years ago, but found it in my parent’s house in Bensenville a few months ago. While staying there the last 2 times, I needed something to read before bed, so re-read it! It’s very short but very good. It’s about how Hitler had a secret daughter that no one knew about! You never know, it could be true!!!!!
This book was the 3rd and final book in the series my dad and I read. This one was called The Rule Of All still by the Saunderson Twins! It was great, but just ended way too soon…. I seriously recommend this book series! And honestly my dad and I really believe it would make a GREAT movie trilogy!!!
Book 2 in the series my dad and I re-read is called The Rule of Many by the Saunderson twins! I did really love re-reading these books, because they are REALLY good! I definitely recommend this series!
So this is becoming a theme with my dad and me. This is another book series where we read the 1st 2 books a while back and now the 3rd and final book has finally come out! My dad and I decided AGAIN to re-read the series! So book 1 was called The Rule of One by Ashley & Leslie Saunders. Twin sisters. The books are about twin sisters but in a different world where you are only allowed 1 child, and any other children will be taken, especially a twin where you can’t help it that it happened. It’s kind of scary re-reading these books now, because there are just a lot of similarities between this made up USA and things that are going on now during this Pandemic……
I had read an excerpt from this book a long time ago but finally got the actual book. It’s called The Book of Pawsome by my favorite cat author, Gwen Cooper. It’s just short little writings, sometimes only a picture about all the wonderful things that are CATS! And at the end of each one she writes ……. and that is PAWSOME!!!!
I actually finished this book a while back but forgot to record it. It was the 3rd and final book in the series my dad and I were reading. This was called Interplanetary by Vincent Tipre! I definitely recommend this book series and my dad and me wish it would become a movie trilogy!!! Great book, just wish it didn’t have to end…..
This was another story by Gwen Cooper. It was called Nothing Ever Bad Happens in Stars Hollow. This was probably my most favorite story of hers ever for 2 reasons! It still was about her cats, which I love, BUT she also made it be about the show Gilmore Girls, which is literally one of my all time favorite shows EVER! That mixed with her great, and humorous writing, made this story so great, and I read it way too fast, it was over before I knew it……
This was the 2nd book in the Mars series by Vincent Tipre called Return to Earth, that my dad and I re-read so that we could read the 3rd and final book in the series! It was fun reading it again, remembering things I had forgotten and re-reading the things I did remember! I can’t wait for book 3 now!
