Gonna keep this short and sweet. Covering all the books. Links are Amazon affiliates.
Quick reminder, if you're looking for someone who only reports on books from a single genre, I am not that person. I read widely and talk about it.
Whatever you think of the sitting "former reality star" president, our jails have been for-profit businesses for quite awhile. I think we've got W to thank for that but I'm not interesting in researching it right now, so that's an uninformed opinion. This story is simply taking it to the extreme -- the extreme being a viewing public hungry and demanding more murders and the ends to which those in control will go.
The story is captivating. I'm definitely hooked, even though it'll probably take me a few days (or a week plus) to get through it. Thank goodness I read fast.
That's all I've got time to report on this month. It's been busy, busy, busy. School starting gives me plenty of time write -- it just came with a whole heaping helping of other stuff that tires a person out.
I make one batch then split it so each kid gets a bowl for their color choice. My eldest remains firmly in the pink camp. My youngest is much more willing to experiment. Thankfully, they will eat any color pancakes.
Even better, these can be frozen between pieces of wax paper. This is critical for my youngest who takes after my baby brother. She wants pancakes every morning and I don't often have the time to make a fresh batch. So, out of the freezer come the leftover pancakes. 30 seconds or so in the microwave and my youngest is a happy kiddo!
I decided to check out the Top 100 Free Children's Books on Kindle list -- a spot I rarely visit -- and was pleasantly surprised with the options. Below are the titles I picked up for myself and family. We haven't read any of them YET...
Because I'm extremely interested in fairytale re-tellings or re-worked versions, I got these books:
These 2 looked cool to me and possibly for my kids:
For my youngest, and possibly for the eldest to attempt to read:
Hoping for a few laughs with these stories. Note that the Patterson one is ONLY THE FIRST 20 CHAPTERS.
Let me know if you pick one or more of these up. I will, hopefully, be able to post reviews in the near future.
Please also note that, while these books are Free and in the Top 100 Free at the moment I write this, that could change at any moment. I offer NO PRICE GUARANTEE.
