Teaser Tuesday #120

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purplebooker.

Here are the rules:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I'm back!

I'm back! Did you miss me? Not really? Oh well...That's okay. lol
For anyone who might be reading this, I've been inactive these past few months because I was finishing my credential program. And yes...I finished!!!! I am so thrilled to be done after two long years of hard work and staying away from things that I love to do: dance, hike, read, and blog. 

I was so excited to be done that I went to the library this morning and checked out all of these even though I have hundreds of books at home:

Mini Reviews: 3 Children's Books

Here is another round of mini reviews for you since I cannot find the time or motivation to write full reviews for each one. I do hope that my brief thoughts can shine a little light on these wonderful books.

This was a cute and super quick story of a boy named Suds. He was entering the third grade, the grade known to be the "Angels." He wanted to be the perfect Angel and wanted to be the first in his class to receive the halo.

Mini Reviews: Audiobook and #ShelfLove

So...I've been completely terrible in trying to write my posts, especially reviews, lately. I've read a few books here and there, but for some reason I can't make myself type up what I think of them. I mean, I do try. I have started many posts. In fact, I have six drafts saved up right now but....I can't seem to finish them. I start typing and then, WHAM! I don't want to write anymore after two to three sentences.  Perhaps I have writer's block? Hmmm...

After a few weeks of finishing the following books, I decided to do mini reviews of them instead. I figured, I should at least say something about them before I forget how I feel about them. Well, here goes!

Friday Posts #14

It's that time again! It's time to participate in the many memes happening on Fridays.  
The first three memes will be focusing on the book...

Shadow House: The Gathering
by Dan Poblocki

Friday 56 is hosted by Freda's Voice and Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. The idea is to share a sentence or so from the first page and the 56th page of the book you are currently reading!

Six Word Summary is hosted by the (book) supplier. The idea of the meme is to summarize a book using only six words. 

Boy...I keep forgetting to publish my posts for Friday. Well, here goes!

Library Love- Shadow House: The Gathering by Dan Poblocki
Some houses are more than just haunted... they're hungry.

Dash, Dylan, Poppy, Marcus, and Azumi don't know this at first. They each think they've been summoned to Shadow House for innocent reasons. But there's nothing innocent about Shadow House.

Something within its walls is wickedly wrong. Nothing -- and nobody -- can be trusted. Hallways move. Doors vanish. Ghosts appear. Children disappear.

And the way out?

That's disappeared, too...

Enter Shadow House... if you dare.
