Book 196 of 500!

This book was The Legacy Chronicles: Raising Monsters by Pittacus Lore. It’s another book in my dad’s and my I Am Number 4 series that we love! It was another quick read, because some of the books are just way too short, and we are already counting down for the next one!!

This book was Pearl Harbor Is Burning: A Story of World War 2 by Kathleen V. Kudlinski. This was a story written for a younger audience, so I read through it quickly, but I love stories from wars, especially WW2. Plus this as written from the perspective of a young boy, and his Hawaiien friend and how they witnessed the attack!

This book was Notes On A Near-Life Experience by Olivia Birdwell. This was a good book, and another quick read for me. It was about a family and the struggles they have when the parents end of getting a divorce, written by one of the children, a girl, an the middle child.

This book was Pioneer Plowmaker: A Story about John Deere by David R. Collins. I absolutely LOVED this book because if you know me at all, you know I am obsessed with John Deere!! Obviously I love their tractors and the color green, but I never really knew must about his history! I’m so glad I finally got to learn about it, it was very interesting, and probably completely different from what anyone would ever have thought!!!!

This book was The Ring Rascals: The Show Must Go On by Kate Klise. This was a very quick read, it was written sort of like the Diary of A Wimpy Kid series, with words and pictures, and I love these types of books! The story was super cute!

This book is called My Life In a Cat House by Gwen Cooper! This is a collection of cat stories all in one book!! What is completely AWESOME about this book is that my name is in it!!! She decided that any of her fans her purchased her book by a certain time could get their name in the book, a way to thank her fans!! It’s just pretty darn cool that my actual name is in a book, even if it is surround by hundreds of other names!! 🙂

These are 4 more stories by my favorite cat author Gwen Cooper! They are called Daylight Cravings, Less of Me To Love, Cat Lovers Don’t Read Books & The Worm Has Turned!! Any story she writes I love so much!! She is just so funny, and everything she says I relate to because I have cats! So it is just so relatable! Also the stories are moving as well! She is a great author!

Book 185 & 186 of 500!

These books were Hocus Pocus and the All New Sequel by A.W. Jantha. I loved reading these books! Hocus Pocus is one of my all time favorite movies ever! And it was fun reliving the movie through the book, because it was exactly the same! Then it was fun to read the sequel, it was just as good as the first (I wish they would turn it into a movie) but I do wish that the original characters were in the sequel a bit more than just the new characters were.

This book was called This Is Me From Now On by Barbara Dee. I really enjoyed this book as well, and it was another quick read for me. About girls in Junior High and dealing with best friendships and a new girl in town, and her being a little odd and getting one girl into trouble!

This book was Trading Faces by Julia Devillers and Jennifer Roy. It was about identical twin sisters who are starting junior high, and they end up switching places and cause a whole bunch of problems!! It was a really cute book and a really fast read. I also love how this book had the 2 authors, who are also identical twin sisters, each write a chapter and switch off like the other book I just read!!! I think this is my new favorite style of reading and books!!

This book was Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Playscript by J.K. Rowling!! This was the story of what happened many years later after the original Harry Potter series ended, and now Harry and all the others are all grown up and have kids of their own! It was AMAZING!!! I really wish they would have made this into a movie with all of the same actors! It would have been so awesome!!! I read this so quickly! I also loved that it was written like a play, I love reading books like that, makes it so much more fun!!!

Book 181 of 500!

This book was Grand Canyon’s Phantom Ranch by Robert W. Audretsch. I saw it when Darrell and I went to the Grand Canyon for our 1 year anniversary trip and we took the mule ride down the canyon, but we just did the day trip, down and back up in a day. So we never actually got to go to Phantom Ranch. So instead I got to read this book about it and see all of the pictures. It just made me really want to do the mule trip again but this time stay 2 nights down there before heading back up!!!

Book 180 of 500!

This book was called The Rule of One by Ashley & Leslie Saunders. The book was about identical twin sisters and also written by identical twin sisters where each sister wrote one chapter about the twin they were writing about and they took turns back and forth which I thought was pretty cool. My dad also really loved this book it was about where the government had a rule of one child per family only, and if you had more than one you got in trouble and the other child would get taken, including if you had twins, you had to choose which one you wanted to keep. It was very interesting and very good, and apparently there is a sequel being written! I sure hope so!

Book 179 of 500!

This book was called The Air Raid Killer by Frank Goldammer. It was taken place in a town in Germany during the end of World War 2. I thought it would have more to do with the Holocaust, but it really didn’t. It didn’t start getting good until halfway through the book, because it was about horrible murders that were taking place in this town, but how the detective had to deal with it while also being told what to do by the Fuhrer and his henchman.

This book was Pride Over Pity by Kailyn Lowry. She is one of the Teen Mom’s from the show 16 & Pregnant and then Teen Mom 2. Darrell and I have been watching these shows since the beginning, and most of the girls wrote books, so I’m trying to read them all to really go further and see what their lives were like and are like! It was a good quick read!
