The Fireman's Wife by Jack Riggs

I neither loved nor hated this book. I feel sort of indifferent towards it. It might have something to do with where I was in my personal life at the time I read it, but I simply couldn’t connect with the storyline or the characters. That said, I will definitely give it another chance and re-read it in the near future and should my opinion change (which I’m sure it will) I’ll edit this review.

Sammy & Sue Go Green Too! (Sammy & Sue) by Suzanne Corso
Sammy & Sue Go Green Too! (Sammy & Sue)

Mel, September 27, 2009

This book could have been great! I'm all for putting difficult to grasp material in a format that children will understand, but the sing-song-ey, rhyme-y method used in this book simply wasn't good. Additionally, MANY of the ways we can all do our part to reduce our impact on the environment and be more sustainable were left out - I'm sure they were "saved" for future books. The illustrations were beautiful and I very much liked the "glossary" at the end. I also didn't much care for the sponsor "endorsements" at the back of the book. Sure, it makes you aware of some of the "green" companies out there, but at the same time it felt like a commercial to me.

The Way of Ping: Journey to the Great Ocean by Stuart Avery Gold

Great book for a pre-teen or young adult or if you just need an easy read with good "life lessons" included. Short and cute with nice little froggy drawings.

The Wednesday Sisters (Target Book Club) by Meg Waite Clayton
The Wednesday Sisters (Target Book Club)

Mel, June 6, 2009

Oh how this book made me want to get serious about my writing! The Wednesday Sisters is one of those books with characters you can easily relate to on some level or another. Despite being a little cliche on some issues (relationships, family, jobs, health) this book is an easy and enjoyable read. I also very much appreciated the "reality" of the changing world in which the ladies lived. The fact that real life historical events (JFK, moon landing, women's lib rallies, etc.) were incorporated made the story that much more engaging
