Sparrow by Mary Cecilia Jackson will stick with you. It's poignant, well written, and engaging. This book was nothing that I expected but something that may hit home. This book deals with some extremely serious events, so be warned and ready to have that discussion with your child if/when they pick this book up.
It's Friday the 13th, and we're talking about Leprechauns! Did you know that leprechauns are viewed as a type of faerie? I definitely didn't! With this St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, it's the perfect time to talk about a Leprechaun's treasure! So the prompt this week is: What is your hidden treasure of a book?
It's #FaeFriday, and that means it's time to let your inner fae come out and play! Instead of doing a Valentine's Day theme, I decided that for this week, we'd talk about healing. Whether you need a dying plant or a broken heart mended, the fair folk can help. Just like fae, books can be incredibly healing, so the prompt this week is: What book helped you through a difficult time?

The characters in The Book Charmer were so much fun. I enjoyed getting to know their nuances and quirks, and I felt like Dove Pond was remarkably similar to another favorite town that I grew up with, Stars Hollow.
I wish I loved this book as much as I loved the description. When I read the description, I know this book was going to be perfect for me. I related so much to Nina, and within the first few chapters, I was prepared to give this book Five Caffeinated Stars because it was incredibly witty and fun. I loved the banter that Nina and Liz had, and I understood Nina's anxiety. Unfortunately, this book didn't live up to the first few chapters.
I finally was able to figure out what I love about Samantha Young's writing style, and it's the fact that each story reads like your best friend is telling you the story. It's almost like you sit down and spend 4 hours listening to your best friend's dirty jokes, setbacks, and love life.
Have you always wanted to read a book about an FBI profiler with ties to a local crime lord's son? If so, check out this mystery by Lisa Renee Jones. Personally, it wasn't my favorite but maybe it could be yours.
