When I was a small child, my fondest memories are spent on the floor of the living room with my Little Golden books. Literally I took them everywhere with me and was always reading them, over and over again. I just loved them so much, and see now they were the books that started my love for words.

As a reader and reviewer, I have had many wonderful opportunities reading all kinds of books. For these two genres I will share my favorites from the time I have been blogging.

For childrens' picture books, my favorite read is Three Cups bu Mark St. Germain.
This book is a wonderful way to teach your kids good values about money, as well as a lesson in humility around birthdays. I was really touched by this story. Check it out on Amazon.

Now for Young Adult.
This is a genre I didn't really bother with until I became a blogger. Reading others' posts about this dysotopian novel, or that vampire book, really got me curious and I sat down with my first YA read, Stolen by Lesley Pearse. Now this was neither paranormal or dysotopian. It was a sweet story about a girl who needed to fight the right track in life. It also had me sold in the genre!
Then Julie Kagawa came out with The Iron Fey Series.
Oh, Miss Kagawa stole my heart with those little fae. I read book one, and have acquired and gobbled up every book since then. Geez, who knew fairies would be my literary weakness?!  Check out my reviews below, and seriously, if you haven't read the series, I urge you to do so. It's smothered in awesome sauce!

My Review of book one, The Iron King
My Review of novella, 1.5, Winter's Passage
My Review of book two, The Iron Daughter
My Review of novella two, 2.5, Summer's Crossing
My Review of book three, The Iron Queen
My Review of book four, The Iron Knight
My Review of novella three, 3.5, Iron's Prophecy
My Review of book five, The Lost Prince

  1. I have a couple of the Iron Fey series on my Kindle. They look good. YA isn't really my genre but these look like great books.

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
