Books read in the Month of May

 May...the time for spring flowers and rolling back on the schooling expectations, business in the outdoors planting gardens, going to for walks, and cleaning out rabbitries.   Not a time for a whole lot of reading, but still.. I DID!  YES!  I read some books!!!


Wow. Guilty Wives by James Patterson...
Wow... I have to admit, that the beginning of the book had me NOT wanting to read the book, so I read part of the ending which... was just enough to intrigue me to want to know how the bad guy did it.

Wow.. this was good read.  I was so glad I stuck it out.  The horror of French prisons though... NASTY.  Are they like that in real-life?   I don't know, but I do know I don't want to go to France and break the law and get stuck in jail there. 

The determination of Abbie, the main character, was impressive.  Her ability to focus and work on proving her innocence amazes me despite all the hardship she was put through.   Perseverance and commitment, being the type of person she needed to be for her children's long term care.   It was such an interesting read...definitely a book for ADULTS!


Urban Wildlife Habitats was a neat read about how different animals have adapted to living with people in urban areas.

Everything from storks to monkeys, to sheep and lizards, to snails and kangeroos.   So many animals have learned to co-exist with people.  Throughout the book are a copious amount of pictures, and tons of information to help us co-exist with them and even help them.  

So tell me....would you want to see a moose in your take-out window?




We've learned about muskoxen and ostriches recently.

Fascinating critters.
Did you know that male ostrich lay on the eggs at night because their black feathers are the perfect camoflage. 







 Rip and Red and the Tournament of Champions.

Two boys learning and growing together... finding it's hard ... Red with his autism (high-functioning) and Rip with his Dad returning... hard things for boys to deal with.  But they manage to pull it together around the world of a basketball championship.




 Secrets and Sequences of the Secret Coders series.

You'll find my review here.   

Using a graphic novel to teach some of the basics of coding. 







 Mission to Pluto is a book my son thoroughly enjoyed.  He used it to further his learning with his apologia studies.  

It's part of the scientist series. And it is a really well done series.  if you have a chance to read some with your children (or even just for yourself do so.)  Elephants and Dolphins are the next on my hit list!



Books I am working through.


My mom-in-law asked me what I thought of this book and I said "this man writes my hubby preaches!"

I am so far loving this book and looking forward to digging into it all the more.  It's not a quick fiction read, but a let's grow a discipling people read.

Good book ... My review is coming!
