#FirstLine ~ Not to brag (well, this is my story, so I guess if I'm going to brag, this is the place to do it, right?) but my house is the most beautiful , most magical, most jaw-droppingly fabulous place in the world.

I love visiting Butternut Lake. Butternut Lake has such interesting people working through the thing we call life. McNear did such a great job creating a place that now feels familiar to me, as I have read all of the Butternut Lake books that McNear has written. In the newest installment The Secrets We Carried (Butternut Lake, #6) you get to know Quinn while she works through the past and has to figure what the future holds. It is filled with so much love...in various forms. Another sweet and deeply moving novel that is perfect for book clubs. 4.5 stars
This book is FANTASTIC. In our house we love dinosaurs and we try to read every book we can about the long gone creatures of the past. I have loved dinosaurs since I was little and it is a passion I have passed down to my boys. This book is filled with cool new information about dinosaurs. I love that this book isvboth fun to read and entirely fascinating because many of the facts we never heard before. I love the full color illustrations because they pair well with all the facts surrounding the dinosaurs behavior, appearance, habits and so much more. It is a blast to read and one book you will love to have in your house because your kids will be entertained and will be learning along the way!!!
#FirstLine ~ Bringing home a new family member can be a life-altering experience.

It is sweet and crazy and almost unbelievable!!! I love that these men have taken a strange and life changing situation and done so much to help in so many ways! Love, love, love this story so much!
#FirstLine ~ Twenty-five years ago, I killed my mother.
I really could not get into this book, but that is just my humble opinion. I know that some of you many really love this book. I am not going to say much because I don't want to deter others from trying this read.
#FirstLine ~ In London, Cari Brannigan kicked the door of the empty office shut with one of her killer heels and went over to the window where she stared out the imposing metropolitan skyline.
This book covers a lot of topics and does so in a way that slowly puts the pieces together. It starts out a bit slowly, but as I said the pieces do come together as the book progresses. I loved the setting of the story and although there are a lot of characters I enjoyed them all.
Such a darling book that hits on so many important themes, such as; friendship, conservation, sharing, nature, death, aging, kindness and healthy habits. I loved everything about this book from the beautiful illustrations to the tender and sweet story. This book will aid in creating dialogue with children about all the themes listed above. It will become a cherished book for everyone in the family. A very special story that is meant to be shared.
It book was quite amazing. There were so many elements that came together beautifully...I loved the plot, the pace and the characters. There was suspense and mystery and nothing was predictable. I knew that this book was going to be good right away and was right. It is a perfect book to cozy up to this fall. I also think that book clubs would find lots to chat about.
This book is so great for kids. It is a wild and action-packed adventure that kids (and parents) will love. I adore that The Nebula Secret is book one of seven to be released in this series brand new Explorer Academy Series. The book is based on real-life science, exploration and mission of the National Geographic Society. This is what sets Nat Geo apart from others. With the action packed adventure, code breaking and exploration this group of students will attend the Explorers Academy and get to really dive into a thrilling quest. All kids will be able to relate to the characters, will get immersed in the science and will love traveling the world. This series will be a hit and we cannot wait to continue on the adventures.
This book is sheer joy. I loved it cover to cover. I laughed and smiled the whole way through. I thought it was so clever and sweet. It is a perfect Halloween read. I loved the characters SO much. I wanted to be in the book right along with them. I read this book to my boys and they thought is was so funny too. It is a great book for kid aged 6-9 and for adults that love to read great books to their kids. Adults don't miss out on this fabulous opportunity to read a fun book to your kids this Halloween. I know anyone who picks this up will adore it as much as I did!!!!
Beep and his best friend Bob hatch a plan to save Halloween—and their school—in this third book in the hilarious, action-packed Beep and Bob series!
It’s October in space, and Bob is getting excited for his favorite holiday: Halloween. When Bob tells Beep that soon they’ll get to dress up like monsters and get as much free candy as they can carry, Beep thinks he has gone to heaven. But Lani informs them that Halloween isn’t celebrated at Astro Elementary.
Bob cannot imagine life without Halloween! He appeals to Principal Quark, but with no success. Determined to save Halloween, Bob and Lani organize a secret club: SCARES (Scary Costumes Are the Right of Every Student, or, more truthfully, the Society of Candy Addicts who Rely on Energy from Sugar).
As the secret club grows, Halloween fever invades Astro Elementary. Unfortunately, a horde of grotesque aliens, attracted by the treats, also invades the school on the last day of the month. With everyone in costume, no one can tell who’s who. Beep and Bob may have saved the holiday, but can they somehow use their sugar-addled wits to save the school?
