Happy Tuesday Everyone! Today I'm excited to participate in the Rain Drop on Roses Giveaway Hop hosted by MamatheFox. I hope you're having a good spring. Did you see the eclipse? I live near the path where you could see the eclipse at 100%. It was about 96% here and still amazing. Plus I got to see it from the comfort of my home instead of battling all the traffic coming home like I did during the last full eclipse. Book of Your Choice or Amazon Gift Card  I am offering a book of your choice that is $20 or less on Amazon. I’m looking forward to seeing what books everyone is lo ..read more

Happy Monday Everyone! Today I’m thrilled to share a review of Kelly Yang’s MG contemporary Finally Heard. I’m a huge fan of Kelly Yang’s Front Desk series and her Finally Seen series, which this is a sequel to. Kelly has been an amazing writer since she was a kid and immigrated to the U.S. from China as a middle grader. If you read her author notes at the end of her novels, you’ll learn what an incredible life Kelly has had. I had hoped to have Kelly here for an interview, but she couldn’t do one given her busy schedule. However, she helped me obtain a book for a giveaway from her publisher ..read more
