This is Not a Werewolf Story by Sandra Evans

Wow. This is going to be a challenge.

This is unlike any other book I have read.

I understand it was a young adult book. I fully kept that in mind (I intend on having my 11 and 8 year old read this.)

One part of me disliked the book, but the other part of me liked it. I felt in some parts it was slow and drawn out and I wanted to shut the book and just be done. But then, just as that would happen, the action and mystery would pick up and I had to keep reading to see what happened.

I did feel it was slightly slow, but at the same time; it gave a lot of the details and information needed to read the story and understand it.

The book mixes myth, fantasy, and mystery into one book that I am sure my kids will enjoy reading. I look forward to having them read it and hearing what they think!

Faith in Every Footstep by Wesley Banks {Book Review}

This is the first book I have read by this author and if his other books include dogs – count me in.

The writing style of this author is definitely different. The vocabulary was much different than what I am used too. (Bigger words that I am not familiar with and a writing style that I personally felt did not flow easily in my mind, but did not detract from the book at all. It was just different and slowed me down a little bit in some areas.)

I was definitely drawn in immediately and found myself grinning ear to ear while reading.

There was this touch of romance throughout that gave the book an extra bit of love, but the journey and connection between Kyle and his dogs – my heart swells.

I have never read any dog sled books, but love my dog sled movies so it was such a neat experience for me to read this book.

I loved everything about it and have always dreamed of having a dog/human connection like Kyle had with his dogs! (That is seriously a dream come true!)

If you enjoy fiction; dog sledding; dogs; human connections with dogs – you will love Faith in Every Footstep. Even if you hate all of those things, you still will enjoy it in my opinion. Great book. Great story. I can’t wait to read more!

Many people do not understand what ADHD is and how it affects someone's mind.

It is my quest this year to shed more light on ADHD so that people better understand what we go through and who my son is. There is no shame in it, but people need to understand that someone with ADHD cannot just "run on a treadmill" and be cured.

I even shared an quick update on B and our journey!

In the words of Uncle Jesse – have mercy!

It is no secret that I love Melissa’s books. The romances are always hot and steamy, but the after dark series? Woah! Definitely not for the faint of heart!

I love the characters and I have to admit – while the women in the books are always pretty amazing; the men in the books are always sinfully delicious and Dylan is no exception.

The Bad Boys After Dark series can be read alone, but I am telling you; once you read one, you are going to want to devour them all. They are irresistible (the series and the men!)

The After Dark series are always more risque and make them a delectable treat for late night reading!

Bad Billionaires After Dark: Dylan by +Melissa Foster, New York Times Bestselling Author and Chocoholic - a MUST read!
