Saving Lucas Biggs | The Thickety | Falling Into The Dragon’s Mouth

Saving Lucas Biggs by Marisa de los Santos and David Teague has an absolutely eye catching cover. Personally, I am quite partial to covers which showcase night time scenes and stars. This cover is one that convinced me to read the book. I also think it will be eye catching for its intended audience. Thankfully, […]

The Sleep Book by Dr. Seuss | Book Review

I feel so fortunate that I grew up with Dr. Seuss. It was a more wonderful than wonderful childhood – with themed days at school, that excellent Christmas special where being a Grinch has entered our lexicon, and then finally, my bits of leadership were memorialized by Oh The Places You’ll Go. I cannot imagine being […]

Audacity by Melanie Crowder | Book Review

Yet, Rumble goes a little deeper than the whole question of having faith vs. being faithless.

I was lucky enough to have the privilege of attending a brunch held by Bloomsbury Children’s at BEA. Aside from the best donuts ever and some delicious mimosas, one of the more notable things about the breakfast was that we got to pick through some ARCs and the way awesome publicists told us a little […]
