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.

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.

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.
