Somewhere recently I was reminded of the fact that this movie we all know (if you’ve never watched it you should) started out as a book. So I went and read the book.

First off, this book is NOTHING like the movie, so just forget anything you know aboug the movie and let me tell you about this book. Continue reading “(56) How to Train Your Dragon // Bookish Blurb”

After reading so much intense fantasy, I wanted to read something light and very different. And then for some reason I started thinking about this book.

This book is one of many that my mom used to read to my brother and me when we were little. I’m not sure when I last read it.

Basically this book is a collection of stories about ‘cures’ that Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle comes up with such as “Won’t-Pick-up toys cure” and Fighter-Quarreller cure”. Continue reading “(47) Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle // Bookish Blurb”

Basically it’s about family and being true to yourself and never giving up and that failure is ok. Continue reading “(37) The Man in the Ceiling // Bookish Blurb”

This is a short fantasy novella which apparently is related to a classic book by H.P. Lovecraft (which I have never read or even heard of). It tells the story of the journey Vellitt has to take in order to find a student who has run away from the college where she teaches. If she doesn’t find her and convince her to return to the school, the school will be closed since men don’t see the point in educating women.

This book is about Lois who is miserable until she starts making bread with faces on it and then her life completely changes.

At first I really liked this book. It starts off fast and is very easy to read. It’s a pretty short book overall. I liked the main character but it did feel like there were a lot of characters for a book so short and some of them were only really there for a scene and then never seen from again… Continue reading “(5) Sourdough // Bookish Blurb”
