    I loved this book even more than the Year of the dog! What I liked about " The year of the Rat" so much was the stories that Grace's Mom and Dad told her, and I also liked reading about the food in the book. I would totally try some of that. Here are some of the foods mentioned in the book: Red-...

The Magic Half

  • ifeelbookish
    I just reread this after a year or so, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I did when I was younger. It definitely fills a niche for younger readers, but the story is not as light as the cover suggests. The book was spine-tingling, yet adventurous. In the beginning of the book the main character, Mi...

Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy

  • spinnypeeps
    Full of adventure, mystery, and excitement, Ophelia and the Marvelous boy is a read to read. I honestly didn't think nurses could be such enchanting authors until I met Karen Foxlee. It was especially exciting to me because it kept me wondering about the boy's past, and the main character was the...

    The once highly in-demand detective Alan Knightley has just woken up after an unexplained incident kept him asleep for four years. While he was out cold, his son, Darkus, took it upon himself to read of all his dad's old cases, and he's learned a lot about the art of detection. It's a good thing ...

The Spindlers

  • ifeelbookish
    First and foremost, a very big thank you to DOGO for sending me this book. I love Oliver's Young Adult books so I predicted that I would like this book. It truly didn't disappoint, even though spiders freak me out. Liza, the main character, has to save her brother's stolen soul from the evil Spin...

The Emerald Atlas (Books of Beginning)

  • ifeelbookish
    So I rated this book 3.5 stars. Don't get me wrong, this is a REALLY good book but I USED to be in LOVE with fantasy novels. Now I'm kind of a little older and I've been reading less Middle Reader Fantasy (this is the first fantasy novel that I've read in like, a year), and more Young Adult novel...
