Heir Of Fire

Heir Of Fire By: Sarah J. Maas

Celina has been sent away by the King of Adarlan.   She is not expecting to be caught by Rowan, the prince of her Aunt Maeve.  Maeve wants something from Celina, because she is the rightful Queen Aelin.  Maeve sends Celina to train with Rowan, and they spend countless hours every day, with Rowan forcing Celina to be who she is meant to be.  Chaol is fighting a battle of his own as he works with Aedion, who is trying to overthrow the evil of the King of Adarlan.  Manon is an evil witch who is preparing for the battle against anyone who stands to fight the King of Adarlan.  The fate of everyone is in the hands of Celina, and we will see just how strong she is.

It is very hard to explain the depth and character of this book.  There were so many things going on in the book and so much action to follow.  I loved this book just as much as the rest of the Throne of Glass series. Celina is absolutely one of my favorite characters,  I love her strength, and her fight for what is right. The only problem I have with this book is that it ended, and I wanted more.

I borrowed this book from a friend.

My Crocodile Does Not Bite

My Crocodile Does Not Bite By: Joe Kulka

It is bring your pet to school day and Ernest has decided to take his gigantic crocodile with him.  Cindy Lou, the very mean girl, says that he can't have him because he will bite the other kids. Ernest insures everyone that he does not in fact bite, and shows off all his tricks to the class. But, Cindy Lou just gets more and more upset because no one in the class cares about her dog, so she does something mean.  Ernest is correct, his crocodile does not bite, but he sure can swallow.  This book was really funny, my boys loved it, and think they need a crocodile for a pet.

The Nuts: Bedtime At The Nut House

The Nuts: Bedtime at the Nuthouse By: Eric Litwin  Illustrated by: Scott Magoon

This is a hilarious book about a family of nuts.  The little Nuts do not wish to go to bed and are trying to find anyway to get out of it.  Mama Nut is not happy with Wally and Hazel and uses her big voice to make sure they will listen.  The story has a free download of the song and lullaby of the book. The illustrations are bright, colorful, and perfect for the story.

Night Knight

Night Knight By: Owen Davey

This is a cute story about a knight who goes on many adventures on his way to bed. He rides his horse down the hall, swims through the ocean in his bath, and finds treasure on his way into his room.  The illustrations in this book are really great.  My five year old son couldn't get enough of this book.
