I love reading books that blend themes together. I’m not normally big on SciFi, but mix it with some Fantasy and I’m sold!

Quote of the Day – Zinnia and the Bees

I take off down the sidewalk in a panic, tripping over people and shoes and strollers. It’s like a terrible, ridiculous attack-of-the-bees sci-fi movie is being filmed—except no one else knows about it, and I am, unfortunately, the star.

Book Review – The Care and Feeding of a Pet Black Hole

Cuevas, Michelle - Care and Feeding of a Pet Black HoleWhen a black hole follows Stella home one night, it’s up to her to care for the tiny, hungry phenomenon. Having a pet black hole can be convenient for getting rid of things that trouble her: Brussels sprouts, her brother’s annoying music, and things that remind her of her dad. But the more that goes into the void, the bigger her problems seem to grow.

When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead

“I still think about the letter you asked me to write. It nags at me, even though you’re gone and there’s no one to give it to anymore.

Favorite Fiction – When You Reach Me

A Newberry winner, and a book I truly enjoyed! I don’t want to spoiler, but do expect some mystery, awkward friendships, sandwiches, misunderstood bullies, a game show host, a homeless guy, and some slightly creepy letters from an anonymous writer.

Have you read When You Reach Me yet? What did you think?
