the night the lights went out, Karen White

The Night the Lights Went Out - Karen White

I absolutely loved this Chick lit. I received this book for free and voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 5* rating. First of all, it was almost like I could hear Meralee's soft southern accent as I read along this story, as she was sharing her story. She was determined and helpless at the same time and just too darn trusting. So I was pulled into her story and those around her. Since this is the first I've ever read of this author, I was pleasantly surprised as I went along for the ride. Well done.

Jake the Fake Keeps It Real, Craig Robinson

Jake the Fake Keeps it Real - Craig Robinson, Adam Mansbach, Keith Knight

This was a funny middle-grade or tween book. I received this book for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4* rating. This was humorous with lots of artwork sprinkled throughout the book. Basically the humor was the type a teen would understand and enjoy but the older of us could get a laugh or two from also. It's a bit wacky for my tastes but then I'm a grandma age.

So this was part fun, part action and interaction and a real interesting ending.
