What's up this week? (We have a winner!!)

And we have a winner!! Caitlyn S. you've won The Pursuit of Lucy Banning! :-D Congrats! I've sent you an email, you'll have two weeks to get back to me.

Aldo's Fantastical Movie PalaceMoving forward, I want to kind of do a brief overview of what's happening this week since I didn't last weekend. Tomorrow (Tues.), will be a book review of Aldo's Fantastical Movie Palace.

Here's the blurb: In the Darkness of this Theater, Anything Can Happen The family's broken-down theater has always been a safe place for Chloe. There, no one can see the scars that line her face---scars her inventor father accidentally caused, leaving even deeper wounds between them. In the darkness she meets Nick, a boy with his own hurts. While Nick isn't the most pleasant companion, a rocky friendship is formed over their love of films. Soon the two are working on a movie script about a fantastical world---one that suddenly comes alive on the screen. Chloe and Nick are transported into an adventure beyond what they ever imagined, filled with dragons, magical pools, and a sinister vapor that threatens to destroy everyone. But when tragedy strikes, Chloe must find the courage to step out of the shadows and find what she's always longed for.

Wednesday I'll be doing a short little post in honor of my not-so-little-anymore sister. (It's her birthday!) 

Like Moonlight at Low Tide: Sometimes the Current Is the Only Thing That Saves YouThursday there will be another review and this time the book is Like Moonlight at Low Tide. I can't wait to start reading this one today! 

Here's the blurb: For Missy Keiser, returning to Anna Maria Island, Florida, means two things: her mother made another poor decision with men, and Missy will have to reenter a world where she’s known as “Messy,” a social pariah who dared to have a crush on Sam King, the most popular boy in school.

But much has changed in the three years she’s been away. Missy’s next-door neighbor is no longer an elderly woman but Josh, an intriguing boy who seems genuinely interested in her. At school, she’s surprised to find few people remember who she once was. And any remaining taunts of Messy are silenced when Sam King gives her his nod of approval.

Just as things seem to be perfect, Josh’s sudden distance, her mother’s latest relationship implosion, and her brother’s strange behavior threaten to ruin it all. Missy is forced to decide between the boy she’s always wanted, a boy who is intent on trying to save her, and the brother she’s known all her life. And her decision could have consequences she can never undo.


There you have it! I will see you all again tomorrow. :)
