Book Review, Blog Tour, and Giveaway: The Lost Girl

I’m so excited to be hosting a stop on the official blog tour for The Lost Girl by Anne Ursu today. I love her books and all things fairy tales and cannot wait to share my thoughts on her latest novel. The Lost Girl is a tale both modern and fairy tale, a fantastic urban fairy tale with quite a few twists and turns that will keep you guessing about what is really going on. The story starts with two twins finding out they will be in separate classes for the first time. Not only that, but they join separate after school clubs, […]

Book Review and Blog Tour: A Dastardly Plot + Giveaway

I always enjoy strong female characters and with a world against them, I love to see how they rise above and become more than they could imagine. A Dastardly Plot is one of those stories. Molly is the daughter of an inventor who has not been recognized because of her gender. Since her father passed away, Molly has quit school and sells pickles in order to help her mother have time to invent. When they gain the opportunity to display her flying invention at the World Fair, she thinks all her and her mother’s troubles have ended. Of course, that […]

Book Review: The Empty Grave – Blog Tour & Giveaway

Find it: Amazon, B&N, iBooks, TBD, Goodreads Additional Books in the Series: THE SCREAMING STAIRCASE , THE WHISPERING SKULL , THE HOLLOW BOY, THE CREEPING SHADOW. I’ve loved this series from the first book, which I first encountered when I was a CYBILS judge the year it won. It was a clear winner, so far reaching above any book I had read that year. I just love the mix of great characters, the absolutely stunning setting of London with ghosts, and some of the more horrific scenes that keep me coming back. While there are some terribly horrific moments, there’s lots of humor and banter, […]

Book Review: Two Truths and a Lie + Giveaway

Two Truths and a Lie is an exciting new series that presents three articles on similar topics, but only two of them are completely true. Readers can actively search and look to see which one is true or not. At the end of the book, it does go section by section and go over which ones are true and which was not true. I loved the research tips section as well as the bibliography. I feel like you could use this book as a bibliography tool as well, showing students they can use a bibliography to do further research and […]
