Scrivener's Moon

I probably should have read the first two books of the series before I got this one but it didn't seem necessary.  I thought because I had recently read the second book and it was not confusing at all that this one would be the same. I got very confused and gave up. The preface helped explain who the main character was but I still didn't understand the story enough to enjoy it. 

I don't think that Scrivener's Moon was my type of book, I was expecting something more like The Last Princess by Galaxy Craze when I read the back so no wonder I was a little bit disappointed.

Legend of the Ghost Dog

I couldn't put down Legend of the Ghost Dog. The cover looks a bit scary, but it will not give you nightmares. It is about a family who go to Nome, and the girl meets another girl who lives in Nome. They see a ghost dog, and try to find out about it. They succeed! I love this book and can't wait to read more from the author.

Time Between Us

Anna's life is thoroughly normal until she meets Bennett, how is thrilling and different from the other boys at her school. But never, not even in her wildest dreams, could she guess how different he really is. I thought Time Between Us was a fun light read. It had its cliche moments, but they worked. I would recommend this book to people who like romance books.

Wow!!!! Lucid is really wonderful. It had me guessing all the way up until the end, and the ending was one of the best twists I have ever read. I would highly recommend this book!

The Cup and the Crown

I was so lucky to find The Cup and the Crown! I had read the first book, The Silver Bowl, last year as an ARC and loved it. This book was just as amazing. I wouldn’t read it if I hadn’t read the first one, though. The book continues the story of Molly, a young girl with mysterious powers, as she and her friends try to find a Loving Cup made by her grandfather. There’s a lot of magic and mystery in this book, so it’s great for it you like fantasy. I would totally recommend it!

Linnea in Monet's Garden

Linnea in Monet's Garden is about Linnea, a girl who went to Paris with her neighbor. She likes pictures by Monet so they went to Paris to see his garden and paintings. If you read this book, you can learn about France and Monet. This book has some French words that kids may have trouble reading or understanding.

Tilly's Moonlight Garden

Tilly's Moonlight Garden is a wonderful book for kids who enjoy quiet and mysterious books. I thought it was interesting to feel how Tilly felt moving house to a place where she had no friends. Tilly somehow makes friends with a pregnant fox. Meanwhile, she worries about whether her mother can have a baby without getting sick. Most of the book was about Tilly playing in the garden, and I wanted to be there with her. The garden was big with lots of life in it, and during the winter it seemed very nice, with hills to sled down.
