Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren

Alright Astrid, you get three out of five birds for this one. The whole experience with this one was meh. The highlight of the entire thing was teaching my 4 and 3 year old what a canniabal was. And now they regularly ask people if they eat humans. It's been quiet fun to watch. Pippy... Continue Reading →

Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? Big Questions from Tiny Mortals About Death by Caitlin Doughty

I give Caitlin Doughty and her novel Will My Cat Say My Eyeballs? five out of five birds! If you love fun facts, death, and facts about dead people this is your next read or listen.

The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

I give Eowyn Ivey five out of five birds for her novel The Snow Child! This wasn't a book I would probably have picked up unless my brother in law had recommended it and I'm glad he did. It was beautiful! I loved it from beginning to end. The characters were lovable and my heart... Continue Reading →

The Woman in Cabin 10

I'll give The Woman in Cabin 10 4 out of 5 birds. I think while reading it I was thinking a solid 3 birds but I'm remembering it fondly now... It was a classic page turner full of twists and turns. I had to fight some of it because it seemed SO FAR FETCHED. But... Continue Reading →

The Button War by Avi

The Button War deserves 5 out of 5 birds from me! I was recommended this book by a school librarian who knows that my taste isn't unicorns, rainbows, and happiness. It was opposite of that. The Button War had a feeling similar to Lord of the Flies.... When I was reading it I was under... Continue Reading →

Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage

I give this book 5 out of 5 birds and all I can say is "Oh my holy crap!" Seriously, this book is demented and I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. It was fascinating and so messed up. So unless you are part of the unique population who enjoys the... Continue Reading →
