    I love mythology. To be honest, Rick Riordan’s book made me love it. So when I saw this new “Rick Riordan Presents” ARC I had to request it. And based on the high demand on this particular ARC, I would say I got pretty lucky. ASATEOF was beautiful in many different ways. I was so excited to see that a middle grade mythology novel is based on Hindu mythology. #WENEEDMOREDIVERSEBOOKSINOURLIVES But, Aru Shah maybe, kind of had a bit of flaws. I shall now arrange this in a pros and cons order- PROS- What I really liked about this novel is the mythology. The Hindu mythology was something new to find in middle grade novels, AND I LOVED IT. The humor in Aru Shah was HILARIOUS! (Wow Lana, the humor was hilarious) There is something though….we’ll just leave it for the cons. The characters were really interesting. I l oved how Roshani Chokshi gave them different personalities. I loved them so much, I wished that I can just hop in and join them on their adventure. I really liked Aru. I loved how she was smart and adventurous. For a girl like Mini, Aru Shah was a perfect sister. Mini was so adorable. Her personality stood out from all the other characters from different books. Mini was truly special! CONS- This is going to be a really short list, so listen carefully… The jokes and references in this book were a bit exaggerated. Ok, I laughed at most of them, but in the middle of a fight, a joke irritates me. Oh! Another thing, the author says that Aru is feeling mad or sad, but she says something a mad person wouldn’t say. When you feel mad, do you usually crack a joke? I don’t think so. In all, I liked this book. There were a few “things” that really upset me. ASATEOF had a bright future, but had a bit of a rough trip. 3 stars from me! Not bad! I received an ARC from DogoBooks; this has not influenced my opinion.

    mybooksandi's book review was featured in I Survived the Children’s Blizzard, 1888 (I Survived #16).
    “A deadly blizzard raged across the prairie, and eleven-year-old John Hale was trapped in a frozen nightmare.” I Survived; The Children’s Blizzard, 1888 is a beautiful masterpiece. I am a huge fan of Historical Fiction. Give me anything Historical fiction and I will surely read it on the spot. The I Survived series in particular is made up of many children that survived historical disasters. This I Survived book is 108 pages long. It was a quick read for me, probably took me a day to finish. After I read this novel, it got me interested in The Children’s Blizzard. And, WOW, people actually made houses out of mud! ***CHARACTERS*** John- John’s life is pretty dang interesting. What I really like is that even though John isn’t necessarily a real person, but someone his age actually experienced what he did. And who knows? Maybe the real kid’s name is John Hale. Oh! And how can I forget when John is looking for his little sister, Franny, in the cold? That was heart-breaking, and it got me on the edge of my seat. ***SETTING*** I ADORE the detail in the setting so much! It is just so interesting to see how people actually lived in 1888. It is even more interesting to see how young children actually survived a brutal snow storm.   In all, I really liked this book. I am sure now that I will read every I Survived novel. Lauren Tarshis’s writing is accurate and enjoyable! Five stars from me! I received this copy of I Survived; The Children’s Blizzard, 1888 from DogoBooks, this has not influenced my opinion.

    “When will my reflection show who I am inside.” I’ve always been a fan of Mulan. The movie is stunning. As a little girl I thought Mulan was amazing, but now I see her as an inspiration to all women. Reflection by Elizabeth Lim is a masterpiece. I loved the characters and plot twists so much. Speaking of… ***Characters*** Fa Mulan/Ping- Mulan (like I said) is an inspiration to all women out there. I liked how she made everyone believe that Ping is an actual person. Women make strong men! Respect for Mulan… Li Shang- Was a very mysterious character. I loved how he was bold and strong at first, but opened up to Mulan about his feelings and even his feelings for her. I like how he developed after his visit to the underworld (Diyu). ***Setting*** Diyu was a very nice and planned out setting. It really showed that Lim took the time and effort to plan it out. Every single thing is carefully planned and described for us readers, from the sky to the grass under Mulan’s feet. As an author-in-progress, Elizabeth Lim is an author that I look up to now. I am taking her work as an example for my writing! Look out for a ‘Dedicated to Elizabeth Lim’ novel! In all… I really liked this book. It is definitely a book to look out for! March 27, 2018! Oh! And did you see the gorgeous final cover? I am buying a second copy! Five stars from me! I received an ARC from Disney Hyperion; this has not influenced my opinion in any way.
