BB&Y Book Review

Wherever She Goes

by Kelley Armstrong

I thought I had posted this review already, so this one is a bit late to the party.

First, I was OVER THE MOON when I received this advanced copy! I actually won it, I NEVER WIN ANYTHING, in a Good Reads drawing. So freaking exciting! In return they ask you to do a review or to just get the word out. So here goes…

I have been a fan of Kelley’s “Otherworld ” books, just couldn’t put them down and still have these books on my TBR again shelf.

I didn’t bother reading up on this book, I just dove in!

Second, I loved this book! I am not going to lie, I expected this to be “otherworldly ” and it wasn’t. But, I still couldn’t put it down so I wasn’t disappointed at all. This book made me laugh and smile. I was frightened and scared shitless. I rooted for this tough young woman that was trying to do the right thing. Again, I loved this book so much; this special copy goes right on the TBR again shelf with her others. πŸ’˜πŸ“š

Book Review by Eleanor – Fanciest Doll in the Universe

Good Morning! This is the first in a series of book reviews on the book series Fancy Nancy.

These are not paid reviews and are from a very young person’s perspective.

This series is written by Jane O’Connor. Published in 2013.

There is also a TV cartoon series.

*a little about this reviewer: Eleanor is currently 6 months old. I know what you are thinking, but she has a definite opinion about things already.

As for Fancy Nancy, nothing grabs attention like Fancy Nancy. This series is like that of Dora but with the French language mixed in.

Eleanor loves the illustrations, they are colorful and bold. Nancy’s catch phrase is “ooh la la” which always gets a big gummy smile.

The unique thing about these books is how she explains a “fancy” word. For instance, in this story “indelible” is explained like this “She used indelible marker. Indelible means permanent, and permanent means it won’t ever come off. Never, ever.”

So this story starts out with Nancy’s little sister giving her favorite dolly a tattoo on her tummy. Eleanor is frowning at such a thing.

Nancy’s momma introduces the idea of going to a doll gala to cheer her up. Eleanor is drooling at the idea and wonders how fancy is Nancy and mirabelle (that’s the dolls name) are going to dress up?

While at the gala mirabelle gets mistaken for someone else’s doll, Oh the Horror Eleanor exclaims!

The only way Mirabelle is identified is by her tummy tattoo! Could this be a positive to such a harrowing beginning of this story? Eleanor exclaims!!!

In the end Nancy forgives her sister and Eleanor gives this book a big slobbery kissβ£πŸ’‹

We rate this book 5 out of 5 kissy lips❣

Powerful Article

Some of you may not know who this lady was/is as an actor and frankly I thought she faded into the background like most actors who aren’t PC enough for the industry anymore. There is just something about this article that I haven’t been able to put my finger on since I read it yesterday morning, but it struck me as profound. In fact, I woke up at 5 am thinking about it, so here I am drinking my first cup of coffee on a Saturday morning trying to figure out how to share it.

You see, I read from a little devotional book every morning party because someone thought I needed something positive to start my day with; who doesn’t wake up thinking about all the “stuff” we need to do and that equates to pressure; in a sense. Pressure can and will lead to negative thoughts, if you let it.

Anyways, I am so glad I took a chance on finding this article so that I could share it with you. β€οΈβ˜•πŸ“š


Enter for a Chance to Win!

Seriously how many ever really win these books? I get a hundred emails a day practically and I get sucked in in the hopes I’ll win a beloved book or swag. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t feel slighted for not winning. But can we hear from people that have actually won? If you follow your favorite author on Facebook for instance, they have drawings for all kinds of swag; and they will always tag the winners. I love this because you can congratulate the people but they give you feed back on their prize! So, anyone out there won a book, book box and etc?Β
