Agriculture is a topic not normally discussed in kindergarten or preschool. But if you want your child to learn about how important agriculture is, then this is an audiobook with which to start.

I didn't even know they made such short reads. This is an excellent little tidbit for children. I would love to hear the narrator's voice in more books!

I wasn't swooned by Caraval, but I enjoyed it. This was really hard for me to enjoy Tella's character. I think I could have loved it from Dante's character, but well, then it wouldn't have been the same story.
Tella was very conflicted as the main character, she seemed to grasp some concepts but couldn't grab others? I have to say I knew who Legend was from Caraval. There were no surprises in this book for me. I am hoping the next one is better because I will have read it to see how this story goes.

I am not one to know a ton of history nor am I one to read historical fiction.

This story brought me to tears on several occasions. Knowing it is not 100% real, didn't stop it from feeling real.

We are on the precipice I feel of a revolution of our own, if our American Brethren ever get up the nerve to stand up to the corrupted government that now stands before us. We need the Brilliant minds of our founding fathers, even if though they had twisted realities on equality.

We are at an advantage of knowing our history and the wrongs and injustices that have occurred, enough to write laws that can protect the men and women of our country.

If only we could brave the courage it takes to stand by our beliefs and not fold to corruption.

This story truly moves me, and I am encouraged to research the books and stories that started our fight for freedom.

Mary Davenport is a 22-year-old idealist who worries that the world in the Progressive Era is leaving her behind. She lives isolated in the Pennsylvania countryside with her affluent and secretive family. When her father dies suddenly, Mary becomes pained with grief and increasingly suspicious of those around her. A humble servant girl has the chance of a lifetime to become a lady's companion. Costly dresses, exquisite rooms, and fine dinners are pleasant distractions from what is really happening in the house.

I had a hard time staying intrigued in this story. I did stick it out to the end, but the story just lagged here and there and Mary was just a lost cause I think...I don't know it just didn't do it for me.

Tragedy had stripped Aurora of everything she once loved. But now she's back in Balsam Grove, ready to face all she's kept locked away for seven years. Or so she thinks. Aurora doesn't expect her first collision to be with the boy she left all those years ago. The boy who betrayed her trust with no regrets. The boy who is no longer a boy but a man with the same stormy eyes that swept her into his current before she ever learned to swim. She'd thought he was safe. He'd thought their path was mapped out. Turns out neither of them was ready for the crash at the bottom of the cascade.

How do you keep the people you care about safe from enemies you can’t remember? Ten years ago, Nate Garrett awoke on a cold warehouse floor with no memory of his past and the only clues to his identity were a piece of paper with his name on it and a propensity toward magic. Now he’s a powerful sorcerer and a successful thief for hire, but it turns out that those who stole his memories aren’t done with him yet. When they cause a job to go bad, threatening a sixteen-year-old girl, Nate swears to protect her.

My son, Logan, wants to have birthday parties, make friends, play at the park - all the normal things that seven-year-olds want to do. All the things I want to do with him. I've put up walls around our life to shield us from danger. Giant barriers to ward off possible threats. Cora Chapman crashes through them like a wrecking ball. She's intelligent and hilarious, with soft curves and a spark that ignites a flame deep inside of me. There's only one problem - she's Logan's teacher.

Hardly ever do I rate this genre 5 stars. This book was fantastic from beginning to end! I think the only thing that would have made this better , is having dual narration where the male always says his part and the female always reads her part. Even so they both did a fantastic job! Sloane hit all the feels in this one for me! Freaking ❤ it!
