Book 239 of 500!

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 236 of 500!

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……

Book 235 of 500!

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!!!!

Book 233 of 500!

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……

Book 232 of 500!

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!

Book 231 of 500!

So I actually ended up having to re-read a book, which I NEVER do!!!! But a 3rd book came out in a series my dad and I were reading, and we couldn’t really remember the 1st 2 books, so we decided we would re-read them!! The book is called The Other Side of the Sun by Vincent Tipre! I”m glad I re-read it, it was really good the 2nd time around again!

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!!

Book 228 of 500!

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….

Books 225, 226 and 227!!

These books are all by Gwen Cooper. Short stories actually. They are called Rhoda Palmateer, Secret Lovers, and For Whom The Cat Yowls. All of them were very good, and interesting, and FUNNY and super quick reads! I always wish they were longer! I love her writing, and I love reading about her cat stories!!!

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!
