I was on Spring Break for two weeks and took a much needed break from reading and blogging.  I went to Japan to see my son who is studying over there.  Here are a few photos of my trip.  I highly recommend visiting Japan.  The food, people, and country are amazing.

WHAT I READ THIS WEEK

Screen Shot 2019-03-25 at 9.16.08 AM

I am so disappointed in this book.  It had so much potential. Instead, the writing was only average with cheesy one liners at the end of each chapter; none of the characters were likeable.  The main character stressed me out endlessly! She is bipolar and wouldn’t take her medicine so that she could “focus” on trying to find her boyfriend. The premise of the book was promising, a vaccine being used as bioterrorism, but it fell flat.  I felt there could have been more suspense about that part of the plot instead of looking for a killer. The “twist” at the end was predictable. I really wanted to like this one but weak writing and plot development just didn’t work for me.

From the New York Times-bestselling author comes a pulse-pounding domestic thriller about a group of friends who have been bound for twenty years by a single secret—and will now be undone by it. Someone Knows is an emotional exploration of friendship and family, as well as a psychological exploration of guilt and memory.

On his way to see his son, Sam, for the first time in years, Henri steps into the road without looking and collides with oncoming traffic. He is rushed to a nearby hospital where he floats, comatose, between dreams, reliving the fairytales of his childhood and the secrets that made him run away in the first place.

Goodreads Book Blurb

Author Annie grew up having dogs throughout her life that helped her with her Autism. Her love of animals, specially dogs, helped her find her passion in life to help animals therefore became a veterinarian. After many years of working with dogs she researched how canine companionship can help children with Autism. She explains the benefits of dogs as alternative treatment to those on the autism spectrum.

My Thoughts

“Confidence came easily when I had acceptance every day, all day, which is what a dog provides for a person.”- Annie Bowes, DVM

If you are thinking about getting a dog, then this is the book for you.  The author, a veterinarian, does a thorough job of explaining the benefits of having a dog, how to obtain a dog, what different types of breeds there are, service dogs, and dealing with the death of a dog.  I love that she promotes adopting dogs from shelters rather than breeders and puppy mills.  I also love that she lists the many benefits to the reader of having a dog.

“…dogs have been able to calm anxiety, decrease heart rate, and drop blood pressure just by their presence alone.”

I thought this book would be more about the benefits of autistic individuals having a dog but in reality it was more about the benefits of everyone having a dog.  The author does relate her own experiences having autism and growing up with dogs and how they helped her and she has a whole chapter on how dogs understand autism and the research to back it up.  Overall, this is a wonderful book for any dog lover and those looking into adopting a dog into their family.

I had high hopes for the second book by Angie Thomas, and for the most part it didn’t disappoint. Like most people, I loved her debut novel, The Hate U Give. This book addresses poverty, stereotypes, racial profiling, and staying true to yourself. It is just as wonderfully written as her previous book but I felt it was too long and dragged in areas. There were parts of the book that I just couldn’t put down and others that I would skim through because it would slow down too much. Overall, I highly recommend this book and look forward to more from Ms. Thomas.

Jo Knowles is one of my favorite YA/MG authors.  Her books are realistic and don’t sugar coat difficult situations.  This one made me cry. Twice! The book addresses poverty and sexual identity in a simplified way that is perfect for MG readers.  Rachel’s family doesn’t have lots of money so her clothes come from thrift stores and she feels so much shame that it broke my heart.  I connected with the main character, Rachel, and her love of animals. My favorite parts of the book were when she went to go take care of all the farm animals across the street. She fed chickens, horses, a calf, sheep, and a pig named Lucy. Rachel found comfort and solace talking to the animals about her troubles.  I loved her heart and empathy for the animals and also, her little sister. The ending is realistic which means it is sad yet hopeful at the same time. I believe it is good for young readers to know that even though things don’t go their way, it will be ok.

After years of learning how to manage her bipolar disorder, Emily Firestone finally has it under control. Even better, her life is coming together: she’s got a great job, her own place, and a boyfriend, Paolo, who adores her. So when Paolo suggests a weekend sailing trip, Emily agrees—wine, water, and the man she loves? What could be better? But when Emily wakes the morning after they set sail, the boat is still adrift…and Paolo is gone.

Madeline Finn and the Shelter Dog centers on budding independent reader Madeline Finn, her newly adopted puppy Star (one of Bonnie’s puppies!), and their unique quest to help animals at their local shelter. This sequel was a natural leap for Lisa Papp. After spending time with so many library dogs writing the first Madeline Finn book, she became aware that many of them are former shelter dogs. Papp is a passionate animal lover and pleased these special pups are at the heart of this installment.

I was not a fan of this book.  Even though the illustrations are adorable, I didn’t like the story at all.  It was very negative.  The poor animals in this book are just doing what comes naturally to them and the kids are constantly saying “Bad dog!” and “No!”  I mean goats will eat paper sacks!  They can’t help it.  And to have a line that says, “The bad dog sits on Dad!” is a horrible message to share with kids.  Dog’s are man’s best friend, of course they want to sit on a lap.

A funny and uplifting book.  Zora wants to fly so she can catch that pesky squirrel that sits on the fence.  My dogs can definitely relate!  They are constantly trying to catch squirrels in my back yard too.  This book teaches perseverance and believing in yourself.  It also encourages helping one another and friendship.  The perfect book for kids that teaches never giving up and helping one another.

A beautifully written story based on the author’s dad’s experiences growing up.  Almost every day Stella goes to a segregated school and she witnesses some of the townspeople threaten and hurt the other black people. I was heartbroken during the scene when Stella’s dad registers to vote.  People were so disrespectful and just plain evil.   Through out all of these trials, Stella continues to try and write about all of these experiences even though it is difficult for her to get the words on paper.  This book is a great example of resilience, friendship, family, love, and hope.

Have you made the switch from print to e-books? Is either one exclusive?

I read both types of books about equally.  I like print books for sitting on the couch with a cup of coffee and I read ebooks on my phone when I am riding in the car, on my lunch break, or waiting for an appointment.
