Sea Cutter, by Timothy L. Davis, 2011, Book Review

MMGM is a weekly meme hosted by middle grade author, Shannon Messenger. (Finally!  A meme that fits perfectly with my content!) I’m going to postpone the book review I had planned for today and feature instead a super novel by Tim Davis. I reviewed the book a year ago, but seeing as it was such a fun […]

5-Q Interview with Author Christina Daley and GIVEAWAY

Today I’m talking with Christina Daley, author of Seranfyll and Eligere.  If you missed either of those reviews, click on the links.   Christina, I’ve been very impressed with the overwhelmingly positive messages in the Seranfyll series. I wonder if you’d share your inspiration for developing it. Oh, and please include how you came up with the […]

Eligere (Seranfyll, book two), by Christina Daley, 2012, Book Review – Bargain eBooks

Christina Daley’s second book in her Seranfyll series is well worth reading. I think I liked book one just a touch better, with its unexpected magic and the delightfully eccentric character of Domrey (read my review of Seranfyll), but this is a solid second installment. Domrey and his adoptive sisters and brother, Rain, Snow and […]

Anabar Rises, by Will Granger, 2011, Book Review

This is the second book of the Anabar series.  If you haven’t read my review for Anabar’s Run, click that first. When we left Anabar at the end of book one, he had successfully completed training to become a scout for his home country of Semdela. Book two picks up where Anabar’s Run leaves off. […]

Cycles, by Lois D. Brown, Book Review

I always tread cautiously when my blog attracts requests for book reviews. I see a wide range of talent and professionalism, but Cycles, by Lois D. Brown, I am pleased to say, rates among the best stories I’ve received. Within, an accident leaves13-year-old Renee Beaumont’s life completely shaken. Not only does she narrowly escape death, […]

The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog, by John R. Erickson, 1983, Book Review

Hank is an Australian shepherd employed on an American ranch. Being “Head of Ranch Security,” as he proudly informs us, “requires a keen mind, a thick skin, and a peculiar devotion to duty. I mean, you put in sixteen-eighteen hours a day. You’re on call day and night. Your life is on the line every […]

Anabar's Run, by Will Granger, 2010, Book Review

This marks the first time I’ve actually solicited an author for a book to review on my blog. The title intrigued me. I just love the name Anabar. But I have to admit, it took me a little time to warm to the story. Anabar’s Run starts out slowly, with a wide, panoramic view of […]

‘Tis the season to unwrap new Kindles!  For all those newbies who might be looking for inexpensive children’s ebooks, I’m starting a new category on my blog:  Bargain Ebooks.  I hope to contribute to it regularly during the next year, but to start off right, I’m going to list my favorites from 2011 in no particular order.  All of […]

The Prize: Tales from a Revolution: Vermont, by Lars D. H. Hedbor, 2009, Book Review

On the border between New York and Vermont lies Lake Champlain, like a 125-mile-long wedge cleaving the two states apart. Its northern end has access to the all-important St. Lawrence River; its southern end nearly reaches the Hudson River. During the centuries in which water travel was far superior to overland, this waterway was invaluable. […]

Sea Cutter (Chronicles of Nathaniel Childe, Book One), by Timothy Davis, 2011, Book Review

  “He’s not dead!” “Please Nathaniel. It’s been two years. He’s not coming back,” my mother begged. “How can you give up on him?” I yelled. Nat’s heart tells him his father survived the shipwreck. But where is he? Why has he left Nat and his mother to a pauper’s existence in New Bedford? Then […]
