I’ve always enjoyed carnivals and wondered about the people working at them. This book brought me into the world of one group of carnies. It was a fun read for me and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

This quote is from The Mida by Lyle Ernst and Kimberly Sigafus:

“Not willing to take the chance of being discovered this early in the game, he raised a hand out to his side and quickly slipped sideways into nothingness. The light watched
him leave and then changed its color to yellow.”

Happy Reading!

I’m almost speechless; I don’t know where to start describing Orphan Train. You can tell the author did their homework by researching the facts surrounding the orphan trains that came into the Midwest in the 1930’s. She tackles a part of history very few people know anything about and did it extremely well. The characters are well-developed and believable.

This quote is from Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline:

“…Vivian has come back to the idea that the people who matter in our lives stay with us, haunting our most ordinary moments. They’re with us in the grocery store, as we turn a corner, chat with a friend. They rise up through the pavement; we absorb them through our soles.”

Happy Reading!

I normally wouldn’t pick up a book like Ender’s Game and read it for two reasons. First, it looks like a kids book. Secondly, I sometimes get lost in the science fiction genre, but not this time. I picked it up because a friend recommended it and I’m pleasantly surprised. I loved this book and can’t wait to read the next one. In fact, I’m going to see the movie on Friday…yes, it was that good!

This quote is from Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card:

“It made Ender listen more carefully to what people meant, instead of what they said. It made him wise.”

Perhaps we should all listen more carefully…Happy Reading!

Life gets so busy that I struggle to find time to read sometimes. I found this week’s quote in Little Bee by Chris Cleave:

“My husband hadn’t always been lost for words. The long silences only began on the day we met Little Bee.”

I am reading this book for my book club…if only I can find time to read. I wonder what it is about Little Bee that would leave a person speechless? I think I had better start reading.
