Super Series Saturday – The Luchetti Brothers – Lori Handeland

Published May 5, 2018 by chrisalys820

I was finally able to finish the series last week. I think that book 4, The Husband Quest was my favorite. I loved reading about Jilly and Evan restoring the inn and all of the characters in the book. I enjoyed how each book was different and each brother and bride had different personalities from the last. All of the books were well written and if Lori Handeland writes more books in the Luchetti Brothers world, I would definitely read them. 😀

I’m currently on book 4. I read books 2 and 6 a long time ago and wanted to read the whole series. I discovered that they were available to borrow on https://archive.org and started reading them. When I finish, maybe I’ll do a Super Series Saturday post about them. 😀

​Review – Someday, Narwhal – Lisa Mantchev, Hyewon Yum

I love Lisa Mantchev’s work. She is on a very short list of authors that automatically go on my To Be Read pile. When she started writing books for younger children, I was excited. I have younger children and I could finally introduce them to one of my favorite author’s work. Strictly No Elephants was brilliant. It is a favorite in our house. When Someday, Narwhal was announced, I knew it would make its way to our shelf. I ordered it for Christmas this year and, before I wrapped it, I read it. And, I loved it. If anyone loved Strictly No Elephants, I absolutely, completely, 100% recommend Someday, Narwhal. I can’t wait for my kids to open it on Christmas morning and I will be sure to share my kids reviews of the book after the new year.

Stay awesome ♡ Christa

In this charming companion to the award-winning picture book Strictly No Elephants, a tiny narwhal discovers that sometimes the difference between staying home and a big adventure is a group of loving friends.

Red front door. Potted plant. Umbrella stand. Piano. Red front door. Potted plant. Umbrella stand. Piano.

That’s what the world looks like from inside Tiny Narwhal’s fishbowl. It’s not very exciting. She dreams of the world beyond: endless blue sky, tall buildings, a bridge. But Tiny Narwhal hasn’t any feet and doesn’t know the street names. And what if it’s cold outside?

What this little narwhal does have, though, are good friends. With the help of her boy and his friends, plus a penguin, bat, and giraffe, Tiny Narwhal finally feels brave enough to go on an adventure.

Someday, Narwhal features the same adorable cast of pets and sweet, lyrical language as Lisa Mantchev’s beloved Strictly No Elephants.

I started reading this last night. I read until I couldn’t read anymore and then I read more this morning. It was even better than the first one. It was awesome! It was amazing! 😍 I recommend this to everyone who read Bridge Daughter.

I now have a book hangover so I probably won’t be reading much for the next few days.

Stay awesome ♡ Christa

The anticipated sequel to BRIDGE DAUGHTER—

Single mother Hanna Driscoll struggles to raise her “bridge daughters,” twins born pregnant with Hanna’s children. In six weeks the girls will give birth and die, leaving Hanna with two infants to raise.

Then Hanna’s busy life is shaken when an activist threatens to rescue her daughters from their fate and kill the children they bear.

A thriller of twists and turns, Hanna faces challenges from all sides to protect her infants-to-be…only to discover she too questions the mortality of her bridge daughters.

​Review – The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks – E. Lockhart

This book was absolutely amazing. I loved it. It took me a few weeks to read it but that was more of a scheduling issue than an issue with the book. Frankie was a character that I could see myself hanging out with at 16. I will be reading more books by E. Lockhart. If you have one to recommend, let me know in the comment section.

Frankie Landau-Banks, at age 16: No longer the kind of girl to take “no” for an answer and possibly a criminal mastermind. This is the story of how she got that way.

Frankie Landau-Banks at age 14: Debate Club. Her father’s “bunny rabbit.” A mildly geeky girl attending a highly competitive boarding school. 

Frankie Landau-Banks at age 15: A knockout figure. A sharp tongue. A chip on her shoulder. And a gorgeous new senior boyfriend: the supremely goofy, word-obsessed Matthew Livingston. 

Frankie Landau-Banks. No longer the kind of girl to take “no” for an answer. Especially when “no” means she’s excluded from her boyfriend’s all-male secret society. Not when her ex-boyfriend shows up in the strangest of places. Not when she knows she’s smarter than any of them. When she knows Matthew’s lying to her. And when there are so many, many pranks to be done. 

Frankie Landau-Banks, at age 16: Possibly a criminal mastermind. 

This is the story of how she got that way.

I picked this book up at the book fair the other day. I’m not that far into it but I like what I’ve read so far. 😀
