Goodbye and thank you, Barbara Parks

Thank you Barbara for the Junie B. Jones series.  Reading these books, at first to and then with my children, has given me memories I will always cherish.


Barbara Parks pasted away last week due to complications from ovarian cancer.

Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell

This is the third Rainbow Rowell book I've read in the last two months. She is definitely on her way to becoming one of my new author faves.  Can't wait to see what comes next!

The Shadowy Horses - Susanna Kearsley

I discovered Susanna Kearsley earlier this, and she's become one of my new favorite authors.  I'm getting ready to start this one for book club, I'm sure it won't disappoint.
