Also, I am checking out some middle grade fiction for a blog post on Middle Grade Recommendations. I checked out the SpiderWick Chronicles. I have always wanted to read this series but never got around to do it. I loved the movie so hopefully I will love the books even more.

Book Review: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Goodreads Summary: Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Ok. I had so much nostalgic feels of reading this book in one sitting. I grew up with Harry Potter for most of the latter books and I had the same anxiousness when I r…

Book Review: Indiana Belle by John Heldt

(I was sent this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: Providence, Rhode Island, 2017. When doctoral student Cameron Coelho, 28, opens a package from Indiana, he finds more than private papers that will help him with his dissertation. He finds a photograph of a beautiful society editor murdered in 1925 and clues to a century-old mystery. Within days, he meets Geoffrey Bell, the "time-travel professor," and begins an unlikely journey through the Roaring Twenties. Filled with history, romance, and intrigue, INDIANA BELLE follows a lonely soul on the adventure of a lifetime as he searches for love and answers in the age of Prohibition, flappers, and jazz.

I'm bringing another book review to you guys from one of my favorite authors. Seriously guys, you need to read his works. He is an automatic buy author. This is the third book in the American Journey series that takes us back to one of my favorite eras. The Roaring Twenties. I love everyt…

Discussion Post #4 Mood Readers?

I am a big mood reader. The book that may be hot right now for some may not be for me simply because I am a huge mood reader. Now, my guilty pleasure is paranormal and paranormal romance. I am always in a mood for that because those types of genres have always been my escape. But for some reason I can't get on the bandwagon when it comes to certain book types because they may not be what I am looking for at the moment.

As of right now I am in the mood for middle grade fiction and high fantasy. I hardly ever read middle grade fiction so that is way out of my comfort zone. I don't even know how I got in that mood anyway. High fiction has always been the type of books that I stay away from because they have always just intimidated me.

Reading has always been my escape. I find that if I am in a bad or kind of depressing mood I go more towards paranormal, dark, and inviting type books. Books that are way from reality because obviously I want to get away from whatever it is that I&…

July Wrap up and August TBR

First of all I cannot believe that it is August. August?!? The year is almost over.
I know I'm not alone in this but the only thing that I read from my July TBR was one thing cause I got a bit side tracked. Also I had some contemporary books on that list but I've always been a mood reader and I guess July was not the month for contemporary. I do want to read them but I will later. They are a bit out of my comfort zone but I'm trying to get out of that as well. I just call them "not right now" books

I loved reading this. It was much better than the first one. I got all the feels and...omgosh I need the next one.
My Review

Ok. When I first read this book when it came out I liked it. Now I finished it and I am just so indifferent about it. It wasn't bad but the characters didn't really connect with me
My Review

O MY GOSH. There is hardly ever a time I dislike a character very much. Hate is a strong word but America was really pushing me there with this one. Sh…
