November Book Reviews

Spells for Forgetting by Adrienne Young:

This book takes place on a fictional island that is a ferry ride from Seattle. Having recently traveled to the San Juan islands I love the familiarity. I am also into books about witches and magic lately so it was nice to read one with a darker mood. It’s a tale rife with heartache with a compelling love story at its core. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros:

I found this book just as entertaining and worth devouring as the first installment, Fourth Wing, was. You definitely want to read them in order. There are so many hints and details sprinkled throughout that I wouldn’t mind reading it again! I was shocked at the ending! I want to give it a 5 star rating but the ending really crushed me so I am hoping the next book can make up for the disappointment. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling (reread):

I listen to these on Audible each Fall. I read them through a few years ago for the first time and was instantly a HP fan! Jim Dale is a great narrator and since I know the story well, it’s good mindless entertainment during the parts of my ceramic work that allow me to get lost in a book or let my mind wander. Familiar audiobooks like these make my work go by quickly! This is one of my favorite books in the series. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Terrible Two by Jory John and Mac Barnett:

Mom’s Review- This is book one in the series and it’s about the two pranksters joining forces. I appreciate that the message isn't about disrespecting authority at school, but is more about being strategic and working together. This is the rare book that has a sense of humor that appeals to both an eight year old boy and his mother. It gave us a lot to talk about and we laughed together reading it.. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Eight year old review- “I am excited to read the next book. I thought it was funny when “…somewhere a cow moo’d” in most chapters of the book.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️
