Saturday Situation is put on by Pure Imagination. It is were we review our latest reads. Be sure to check out theirs as well.
This was my first book by this author. I highly recommend this book if you are a teacher or work in a school with children. The main character, Maggie, who is a 6th grade English teacher, decides to tutor Yuri outside of school because he is not healthy enough to be around children. The author did a great job developing the relationship between Maggie and Yuri. The reason I recommend this book to educators is that there are so many great examples of the struggles of being a teacher but also the rewards of working with children. My only complaint of the book is the back history of Yuri’s parents was a bit boring. Even though it ties into why Yuri might have his heart defect, it was too much. I just wanted to get back to Maggie and Yuri’s story. Overall, a beautiful story of living life to the fullest and making the most of what you are given.
This is the 4th book in the Miss Peregrine series. I really liked the first two books in the series but felt like the third was discombobulated. One of my pet peeves that authors sometimes do is start changing the rules that have been in the story from the beginning. I find it confusing and a too convenient way to further the plot. I am happy to say that THIS book was much like the first book. It was simple and had a fun and exciting story line. Jacob decides to go on a quest to help a peculiar child that is in danger. He takes along some of his peculiar friends who have never experienced life in 2018 which makes for some funny moments. Also, this quest turns into a road trip across the country which is one of my favorite type of quests lol. Jacob and his friends find different time loops which is interesting as well. I believe there are two more books planned so I am excited to keep reading about Jacob and his quest to try and find out more about his Grandfather and his work to rescue peculiar children.

This in one of my favorite movies but I have never read the book. So, when I saw it for $1.99 on Amazon for Kindle, I grabbed it. It was still this price at the time of posting.
La La in the Library posted on her social media sites a couple weeks ago that this was free on Kindle. I had to have it! It is currently $3.99 . The photos in this book are gorgeous and the recipes look so delicious.

Do you take notes on the book you are reading as you read?
A lot of times I will put little Post It note tabs in the books on passages I really liked or if I am reading an ebook, I will use the highlight feature.
