I Survived: The Wellington Avalanche, 1910 By: Lauren Tarshis

I gave this book 5 stars.

This is a great way to learn a little about history. Yes, it is middle grade, but adults should read it also. She picks history stories I never heard of before, such as this one. This happened in the Cascade Mountains in Washington State. It is a historical fiction story and always based around children. An orphan girl going to Seattle by herself to escape her way of life in Spokane with her aunt. She befriends a boy, and they are stuck in this small town due to a blizzard.

Love on The Brain By: Ali Hazelwood

I gave this book 4 stars. Bee is working her dream job, but things are missing, and people won’t listen to her. Levi is her co-worker that didn’t want her there. Is he the problem or is it someone else?

Grumplets and Pest By: Asia Citro

I gave this book 4 stars. Zoey’s magical friends are getting grumpy. What is causing this? Also, Zoey’s Kale plants have aphids. How does she solve these issues.

Bips and Roses By: Asia Citro

I gave this book 4 stars. Hophops have eaten most of the roses and bips. Bips help the roses bloom and the roses help the little hippogriffs shortly after they are hatched. Can Zoey make enough bips in time.

As you can see, I had a really good reading week. It did help that I had a three-day weekend. I enjoyed everything that I read. Have you read any of these books? If so, what did you think about them? Let’s chat in the comments below. until next time, keep reading.
