Dragon is in the title so I HAD to pick this book up! This book releases on October 15th. I want to get the review up before then, so you get a bonus post this week! I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed reading this book! *This book was given to me … Continue reading Book Review: The Dragon Warrior
Trish is a 13 year old girl with a secret…a very personal secret which has already destroyed her relationship with her best friend. But she is tough and has more than friendship problems on her mind. The Euclideans are on a mission to wipe out magic. To do this they are capturing and experimenting (aka torturing) magical creatures like Nessie, Sasquatch, Jackalopes, Kirin, and more.
My students raved about this book. They are so excited that the last book in this trilogy is coming out this fall. I had to read it and see if it was worth all the hype.
This has the word “Dragon” in it so of course I had to read it! I’ve heard some people say they hated it and some loved it. I’m in the loved it camp. It is not my typical read with tons of action, but I enjoyed it none the less.
This summer I am putting some dents in the long time books on my TBR list! I wanted to read this book for two reasons, Kathy Reichs (writer of the Bones TV series), and I happen to like wolves or anything dog related. Virals by Kathy Reichs and Brendan Reichs Tory, niece of Temperance Brennan, and her super smart friends get into a heap of trouble when they discovers one of the wild wolf-German Shepherd hybrid pups go missing from the island where their parents all work. They discover that one of the scientists on the island has been experimenting on him. Which also exposes her and her friends to something that is changing them.
It’s 1875. Cap Cooper is a 12 year old whose mother is pregnant with another child. She is weak and sick. Cap and his dad just want to be able to pay for her medicine, so they pick up a job of grave digging. Not to put bodies into, but to take them out. They are stealing the bodies to sell to medical facilities. It’s good money, for some rather unsavory people. Cap feels bad about it. Then one of the bodies comes back to life! Did he cause that? Does he have some paranormal power? Or was she buried alive?
Here is a book trailer about Dragon Pearl by Yoon Ha Lee.
I saw this on NetGalley and snatched it up based solely on the author, Orson Scott Card. After I downloaded it I looked at the description. It actually sounded like an interesting plot idea too. I devoured the book. This ARC is in a kind of rough state, so I half wonder if the cover might change. have another book that is in much better shape and it is not set to release until October of this year. This one comes out in September. Hopefully! Professional Reader Lost and Found by Orson Scott Card First imagine that you can see something lying on the ground like a scrunchy, and just know where the owner is so you can return it. Cool, right? Not for Ezekiel, who was repeatedly accused of stealing the very thing he was returning! Nobody wants to be friends with a thief. So now, he just tries to ignore the things he finds. Beth, a really short high school kid, enters his life, wanting to be his friend, and stubbornly refuses to leave him alone no matter how rude he is to her. Finally a cop comes and asks for his help in finding a little girl. Yeah, AFTER cops spent his whole life accusing him of stealing, NOW they want his help! Right! He learns he is not the only one with micropowers. He is invited to a group of others like him that have pretty useless minor little powers. Like the ability to make someone yawn. So, no, not cool like the X-Men.
I just heard about this thing called The Reading Rush. It is one week of reading as much as possible. It starts July 22.
It is a fast, gripping, easy read full of questions and mystery. Now, I am a big wimp when it comes to scary stories. I love a good kid's ghost story though. This story is perfect a little ghost-y but not nightmare inducing.
