My Thoughts This is a new to me author and one I’ll be reading again! Dragon Seed really pulled me into the heart of the story instantly. From the start I was completely engrossed and taken on a fast paced ride of what’s right and wrong. That’s saying something for this book as I’m not a huge fan of young adult reads. However, this book….oh, this book really hooked me! As a mom of two teens, one of whom is troubled and angry often times, this book hit home with me in so many ways. It’s so much more than a simple young adult read. It’s a book filled with Bible lessons and messages of prideful ways and seeking more of Him. I loved that! These are the kinds of characters, and plot lines, that I want to see my children reading! Lessons of good versus evil, right versus wrong….all of it so gripping! This book is definitely worthy of 5 stars. It’s phenomenaly created, it’s well rounded with complex characters and God’s lessons. If you are looking for a laugh out loud book for your child/teenager, then this isn’t quite the book for you. If you are looking for… Read more »

My Thoughts If you have a young reader in your life, this is a book just for them! Nancy Stewart is a talent author and has created a book that is filled with colorful illustrations that really catch the eye, and two sweet girls that I loved to read about. This book is super quick to read, and filled with a touch of mystery for the young sleuths who read this book. Bella and Britt are two sweet girls and they are in for an adventure as they encounter a manatee and all the whirlwind that comes with the encounter. They find a smuggling ring and they’re out to save the day. This is definitely a 4 star worthy children’s book that I enjoyed reading for myself. I am going back to look for more in this fun series, and will be on the look out for more work by this incredibly talented author!
My Thoughts: Sadly, this is my first adventure with Riley Mae. Happily, I loved it! I am big on the adventures of young folks. I love the situations they find themselves in most all the time. Sure, I’m a 30-something mom of two boys, but I love that feeling of exhilaration I get when I follow a kid on an adventure. With Riley Mae, we meet lots of fun along the way, lots of sadness and lots of mishaps, but in the end, we get a powerfully inspirational message from Riley Mae, God and a sweet little boy! This is definitely a 5 star worthy faith-filled book that will teach young children and teens alike, the importance of embracing life and cherishing each moment God gives to you. Sunday’s character was amazingly created and had me in awe of all he tackles on a day-to-day basis. Definitely inspiring and eye opening for sure! If you are a kid at heart, love reading or know of a child who loves to read, get them a copy of this book. It’s book 2 in a series but definitely fun to follow along with! I can’t wait to go back and read the… Read more »
