Book Rating:9.1 Characters: Midnight Without a Moon (Rose Lee Carter Book 1) First published: January 2nd 2017Rating: 9.08 stars GoodReads:Midnight Without a Moon Review: I had the opportunity to read an ARC of this awesome novel by Linda Williams Jackson. This is a very powerful book with an important story that needs to be shared with young people. More than any other book I’ve ever read on the civil rights movement, this book pulled me right into the world of African American sharecroppers living in Mississippi in 1955. Told from the point of view of thirteen-year-old Rose Lee Carter, who lives with her grandparents, her younger brother, and her cousin in a sm

Book Rating:8.2 Characters: Loogie the Booger Genie, Prince of Prank (Loogie The Booger Genie Book 1) First published: November 20th 2012Rating: 8.3 stars GoodReads:Loogie the Booger Genie, Prince of Prank Review: Over all I really enjoyed the book, but there were things I didn’t like. I would have liked to see the book extended to show how the prince is finally freed. I was a bit disappointed when I read the last chapter to see the story didn’t actually end. To me it seemed like it just dropped off. I also had the 11 year old I baby sit read the book, and tell me what he thought. He said he liked it, but like me he wanted to see what happens to the prince. The other thing we both agreed on was that the s Loogie the Booger Genie, A Very Nasty Cold (Loogie The Booger Genie Book 2) First published: March 18th 2013Rating: 8 stars GoodReads:Loogie the Booger Genie, A Very Nasty Cold Review: Be careful what you wish!

I’m sure there were many other such squeals at other houses when this book came out last week. I know that our kids (okay, and me too!) have been waiting for this book to come out ever since it was announced that Brandon Mull would be writing a sequel series to his beloved Fablehaven series. I will admit that I can’t wait to introduce our little guy to these books in a few ye
