Book Reviews 10-2-16

I am back, although I don’t know how frequently I will post these right now since concentrating on the computer screen is straining my eyes and causing headaches. New glasses soon, hopefully.

Book Review: A Note Below

Here’s another little ditty for you.

The Note Below

Book Review: Tree Of Ages

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Tree Of Ages

Book Review: Eternal

I have a new book review for you: Eternal by Cynthia Leitich Smith.

Review: The Green Dagger

I just finished The Green Dagger today, in only a matter of hours.

It is targeted for 9-14 year olds but those of us who are young at heart will enjoy it as well.

If you have a young reader on your Christmas list The Green Dagger will be in stores December 2, 2014 and is the second book of the Black Myst Trilogy by Kelly Hess.

Review: The Stone of Valhalla

The Stone of Valhalla

by

Mikey Brooks

Four Stars!

The Stone of Valhalla is targeted at 8 to 12 year olds and Mr. Brooks has done a wonderful job of pulling them in.

The story starts off with 13 year old Aaron standing outside an elderly woman’s house and contemplating his life.  He’s a loner with no friends to speak of, four older brothers who always get to do everything first and parents whom he loves very much.  He’s also thinking about exactly why he’s standing outside Mrs. Timble’s house:  he’s supposed to steal something valuable so he can be part of the ‘in’ crowd.

Aaron manages to get into Mrs. Timble’s basement and does find something he believes is valuable but before he can make good on his escape the light comes on and someone starts coming down the stairs.  The lights miraculously go out and he manages to hide in an old root cellar where he finds something even more valuable.

Follow Aaron as he is transported from his known reality to a totally different reality where he is mistaken for a witch and taken to be burned at the stake, to his rescue and go along for the adventure as he makes friends and discovers that he is one of three who is destined to save that reality.

If your children are reluctant readers because they can’t seem to find something that grabs their attention this might just be their ticket to a world we all love:  reading.
