The Gift That I Can Give by Kathie Lee Gifford, illustrated by Julia Seal ~ a #KidLit Review

by MK French

This is a children's book aimed at a very young audience and helps teach children that they can have an impact no matter what age they are. Gifts can be the obvious ones, like dancing, singing, or playing in sports. There are less obvious ones, like being kind and caring, being a good friend, and sharing love.

The Man She Married by Cathy Lamb ~ a Review #MondayBlogs

by Susan Roberts

I love Cathy Lamb's book and this is one of her best. I loved the characters, the plot, the location - I loved it all. It made me laugh and it made me cry and it taught me how life can change so much after brain damage and how difficult it is to recover.

The Happy Home for Ladies by Lilly Bartlett ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

I received this book a while ago when I was going through eReader problems and kind of forgot about it until I saw it on another blog. The first thing I noticed is that the title has changed since the ebook was released in August (probably happened when the paperback edition came out last week). Then it was called The Not So Perfect Plan to Save Friendship House. I have to say The Happy Home for Ladies is a much better title for this book.

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell ~ a #GreatReadPBS

by Susan Roberts

As of October 11, Gone with the Wind was in the Top 10 of most popular books from the Great American Read.

How it begins...

Scarlett O'Hara was not beautiful, but men seldom realized it when caught by her charm as the Tarleton twins were. In her face were too sharply blended the delicate features of her mother, a Coast aristocrat of French descent, and the heavy ones of her florid Irish father. But it was an arresting face, pointed of chin, square of jaw. Her eyes were pale green without a touch o hazel, starred with bristly black lashes and slightly tilted at the ends. Above them, her thick black brows slanted upward, cutting a startling oblique line in her magnolia-white skin - that skin so prized by Southern women and so carefully guarded with bonnets, veils and mittens against hot Georgia suns.

Unwritten by Tara Gilboy ~ a #KidLit Review

by MK French

Grace Freeman occasionally has very vivid nightmares that were flashes of the life she would have led if she had remained within the story world she was originally part of. Her mother had escaped into the "real world," and had hidden the part of the book that they had come from. Gracie can't help but wonder who she was "supposed" to be in that story, and seeking out information about that winds up drawing everyone that left back into the story. She doesn't know who she is anymore: the Gracie of the real world or that of the story, which is drawing ever closer to its ending.
