This meme was started by Rae Longest at Powerful Women Readers. As I am a grandmother, who loves to read to her grandchildren, a mother who loved to read to and with her children, and a retired teacher librarian, this meme really attracted me.

First Line Friday: October 6, 2022

It has been well over a year since I participated in First Line Friday, but I thought it was time to start up again. First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Reading Is My SuperPower.

What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Never After – Where Real Life and Fairytales Collide #BookReview #MiddleGrades #Audiobook @MacmillanAudio @MelissadelaCruz

The Chronicles of Never After

I just read and listened to the first two books in the Chronicles of Never After series and enjoyed them. They are geared to middle grades, but can be read by anyone who enjoys a reimagined fairytale, but the plots and language are simpler than others I have read. I was a huge fan of the television series, Once Upon a Time and thought this series had some similarities, especially finding out the stories were not always true, or there was more to them than what was in the book. Scroll down to check out my reviews.

Three Animal Stories, Narrated by the Animals: Mac on a Hot Tin Roof, What a Dog Knows and Frankie and Amelia #BookReview #20BooksofSummer2021

I really enjoy stories that feature animals as main characters and these three did not disappoint. I enjoyed all of them, even though they were all very different. All of these books were provided by the publisher at one time. The rating and opinions shared are my own.

Early Chapter Books for Children: Wednesday Wilson, Izzy in the Doghouse, Saving Cosmo, Scouting For Clues, Cecilia;s Fundraiser #BookReview

In April, I wanted to read as many middle grade books as possible. I also had some Early Chapter Books suitable for late primary/early junior readers that I also wanted to read and review. I read some of these with my grandchildren, but not all as my granddaughter is a bit young, and my grandson hasn’t been over as much. I hope to read them with her as she gets older. All of these books were provided to me by the publisher through either Netgalley or Edelweiss. The rating and opinions shared are my own.
