In celebration of this trilling middle grade read:
I am here to share with you some yummy treat ideas you could nom on while reading it!
First and foremost, seeing how Halloween has just happened I highly recommend grabbing a handful of that Halloween candy you collected before sitting down and snacking right on all that sugary goodness.
Second, we cannot forget the cupcakes. They are very necessary to all things and make everything better. And there are so many flavor options. You just cannot go wrong with this option.
For those who need caffeine in their life, another great option would be a frap coffee beverage. Tasty, with many options, and it will help you out with your late night binge read.
Cookies would be another yummy option. And again, there are many different flavors. White chocolate chip with macadamia sounds really good to me right now actually! All in all, as long as it isn't too messy, nom on what you will!
I realize I have been absent a bit in the last few months. Is there a real reason why? No, honestly there isn't.
I just haven't found the will or drive to do too much creating of things. I haven't been coloring, crafting, or making any sort of art....so in kind I haven't found the drive to write a blog post.
Really, I am pretty much forcing myself to do this just so you all know that I am still here and that this blog is still going to be updated. I love it too much to give it up. It was there when there really wasn't much else and I don't intend to let it go.
Have I at least been reading? Yes, I most definitely have! I have sooooo many reviews I need to sit down and write. And I have read some really good ones! Ahh. I feel like I am failing you all!
Also, I opened up my own Little Free Library in my neighborhood. A post about this will come your way. I love my little library! Not many use it yet, but it is there for them!
I also started a Facebook book club. So many people I know love to read, but none of them live near enough to anyone else to really have a physical book club...so I figured that this would be the next best thing!
So, in short, I am still here. I am still sharing the book love with others. And I am going to be better about posting!
Well here we are.... with the third and final book in The Secrets of the Pied Piper series by Matthew Cody...
It has been a fun and wild ride. The adventure was grand, the characters were (mostly loveable...dang villains!) and the story was a lot of fun.
The whole series is a take on the Pied Piper story. You know the one....the Pied Piper comes in an plays his flute and all the rats follow him and leave the town. Well in this one, the legend has it that the Pied Piper was angry at the town after he helped them, they didn't pay or something, so he came and took a bunch of their children away and never brought them back!
Then centuries later, our main characters, a set of siblings, find themselves neck deep in this legend.
As I already stated this book was a lot of fun. It is the third installment to the series, so there isn't a lot that I can say that won't be a spoiler for some where in the story line for those that haven't read it yet.
But I can say that it is a continuation from where the 2nd book ended. Not much time, if any has passed and the story does end in a way that is satisfying. I will, however, miss these characters and this adventure. I loved this creative world and the imagery it possessed.
Sorry, if this feels more like a review for the whole series rather than this book alone, but at this point, I can't really separate the books. I enjoyed all of them, including the final one and did not find myself disappointed with it at all.
