  • Alright, so that's 28 for the month of April, bringing me to a total of 79 for the year. I have 121 left to read by December 31st, and I'm hoping to get a good chunk read during MotherReader's 48 Hour Book Challenge in June.


    1. Hi Jill,

      I'm a Mom and I'd like to recommend a book that I just read with my 10 year old daughter. (I think it would be good for 8-12 year olds however.)

      It's "Bitter Tastes" by V.B. Rosendahl and the main character is 11 year old Kathy who has a disability, but confronts a mystery while she's trying to fit in at a new school. It reminded me alot of the Nancy Drew series I loved as a child. My daugher and I are looking forward to the next book in this series, too.

      Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. (I tried to put the link to the author's website above fyi. Hope I did it right.)

    2. Linda & Melody,
      Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for the recommendation. I will definitely take a look at Bitter Tastes.

    3. Ooh, I want to read Everybody Bonjours! It looks adorable.

    4. Dewey,
      Thanks for dropping by! Everybody Bonjours IS adorable. When you do read it, let me know what you think. I'm hoping to post my review soon!
