Bloomability by Sharon Creech Book Review!

Published June 5, 2018 by Shay Taree

So I decided to read this book by the name of Bloomability mostly because I remembered reading this book as a kid. I really enjoyed reading this book and to see if it was as good as I remembered I decided to read it again.

Bloomability is about a girl by the name of Dominica Santalina Doone nicknamed Dinnie who moves around with her family a lot. After her sister Stella has a baby she ends up leaving with her Uncle Max and Aunt Sandy on an opportunity. This opportunity is for her to go to a private school in Switzerland where she makes tons of new friends.

While in Switzerland she meets Gurthie and Lila and they become friends along with many others.

Bloomability tells the story about a young girl that starts off wanting to keep things the same and also her old and new life separate. But as the year continues in Switzerland she starts to see both these worlds come together and also grows as a person.

After reading this book I realized that I loved this book just as much as I did as a kid. The only thing that I wanted more of was I wanted to see more of Dinnie growing. We got small glimpses of it at different times but I just wish there was more of her explaining her feelings. Also I of course would have wanted a sequel to this book.

Overall though I enjoyed this story and I think that many of you will too. You can purchase the book iBooks and I’m also sure that you can purchase it on Amazon as well. So check out this book and if you haven’t comment down below and let me know what you thought of it.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Review!

Published April 10, 2018 by Shay Taree

As many of you know I decided to reread the Harry Potter series and I finished the 2nd book some time back but I forgot to write the review.

But Harry Potter and the Chamber Of Secrets welcomes back the main character Harry where a new threat is happening at Hogwarts. A house elf by the name of Dobby tries to stop him from returning to school but that does not work.

Once back at school some of Harry’s schoolmates start to become petrified one by one as something evil lurks the halls. No one knows who or what is behind it but will they find out what’s happening before something even more terrible happens?

In this book you also get a few new characters such as the house elf Dobby, Gilderoy Lockhart, & Lucias Malfoy. These new characters bring some depth to the book and this also makes this book just a bit darker compared to the first one.

You also learn something new about Harry that will deeply impact his life at Hogwarts and like always there is always fun and havoc along the way. So be sure to check out this 2nd Harry Potter book if you haven’t already. I did enjoy this book even though it’s not my favorite in the series.

One reason being that it just seems pretty slowly paced throughout the book and then speeds up all of a sudden at the end. But it was still enjoyable to read.

I also recommend the illustrated edition since the pictures are really amazing. Also it makes reading the book that much more fun!

But what did you think of this book of you’ve read it? Do you plan to read it if you haven’t already. Comment down below and let me know.

Harry Potter And The Sorcerers Stone Book Review!

Published February 27, 2018 by Shay Taree

I’m sure that many of you are look at this title and going has this girl really not read he Harry Potter series! Well I’m here to tell you that it’s false! I have read the Harry Potter books and I own all the Harry Potter books but it’s been a while since I have re-read them. So I decided to reinsert myself into this glamours world.

The first book of Harry Potter is where you are first introduced to the wizarding world and of course Harry Potter himself. It’s starts off with you learning that Harry’s parents have died and as a young child he is sent to live with his Aunt, Uncle, and cousin who treat Harry like complete crap.

Harry then learns he is a wizard and is sent off to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This is where he learns that he is famous due to defeating the dark wizard that killed his parents and also makes his first real friends which are Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.

But there is something evil going on at Hogwarts and it involves the sorcerers stone which someone wants to steal. So Harry, Ron, and Hermione try and figure out who wants it and how they can try to protect it.

Even though I had already ready this book servers times it still had me excited from beginning to end. Also since I read the illustrated edition it was a lot of fun being able to also look at the pictures to go along with the story.

At this point I have now moved on the 2nd book in the series which I’m also loving. But if your one of the few people that have yet to read this series I definitely recommend reading it. You definitely won’t be disappointed.

If you have read this book or the series comment down below and let me know what you thought of it. If your someone that hasn’t read this series yet then tell me why you haven’t.

Always & Forever Lara Jean By Jenny Han Book Review!

Published February 22, 2018 by Shay Taree

I have finally finished the Lara Jean series written by Jenny Han and I completely loved it. Always & Forever Lara Jean is the finally book in this series installment and it definitely didn’t disappoint.

Always & Forever starts off during the later half of Lara Jean’s senior year of high school with her relationship with Peter. It takes you through the ups and downs of her senior year including on where her relationship with Peter will stand once they go off to college in the fall.

I definitely enjoyed reading this book and couldn’t put it down. It definitely made me think of my own senior year experience especially when it came to my friends going away to college. That definitely almost caused me to shed a few tears.

I think this was the book that we definitely saw Lara Jean grow up and do things for herself. You saw her make decisions that she didn’t know that she would have to make but you saw her make them of her own free will and what would be best for her. While she did think of the relationships with her family and friends she also thought about what would help her in the long run.

This was definitely an enjoyable read and I’m so happy with the ending of this series. So I definitely recommend reading this series if you haven’t already.

Also comment down below on your thoughts on this series if you’ve already read it or let me know if you plan to read this series.

Fire & Fury Inside the Trump White House Book Review!

Published February 20, 2018 by Shay Taree

As we all know many of us were shocked when Donald Trump became President of the United States and since then there have been several scandals that have rocked the White House. So when this book came out about the secrets regarding this presidency I just had to read it.

To be honest this book was a very interesting read and had me from beginning until the end. But there were moments when this book had me kind of confused because to be honest there were a few people in the political world that I didn’t know.

That doesn’t mean this book wasn’t entertaining because it was totally entertaining when talking about the different scandals and a behind the scenes look of what many people where thinking when Trump became president and seeing him run the country.

Like you learn that Trump didn’t expect to win the presidency and most people in his camp were apart of his campaign for their on agenda and in many ways other people seemed to be running the White House.

You also learned a little bit about the thought process behind so many of the hiring and firing of many officials. Plus you see more about what happens when the Comey firing happened.

I definitely recommend checking out this book if you have been interested in this presidency due to all the shenanigans that have been going on. This also doesn’t at time read like your usual political book and at times reminded me of a soap opera. I honestly couldn’t believe that this was really happening. So definitely check out this book! Also feel free to comment down below about what you thought of this book if you read it and also whether or not you will read it.
