Leven Thumps Book 2

Leven Thumps and the Whispered Secret By Obert Skye-

I have really been enjoying these books. The first one I didn't know what to expect when I read the first book. I had never heard anything about these books so they have been a pleasant surprise. Obert Skye's writing style is a little different and I have a few friends who dont really like it. I liked this book more than the first and I cant wait to start the next one...as soon as I can get my hands on it. :) Here's what the book is about:

Fourteen-year-old Leven Thumps and his not-so-merry band of Foo denizens return. Things start going badly right from the start. Homes are destroyed, people are buried in dirt or encased in ice, planes almost crash, and poor Geth, once a powerful and respected person, is turned into a toothpick and swallowed. The characters aren't compelling, and the most interesting parts of the story take place in Reality and not in Foo at all. The "Whispered Secret" is somewhat of a letdown. The ending sets the stage for yet another outing.

A Horse Book

A Horse Book By: Mary Tourtel -

This was a free book that I got on my kindle and I really enjoyed it. It's a fun little kids book full of stories and poems of horses. My edition didn't come with the pictures, but it was still a fast, fun and relaxing read. It was nice to escape my textbooks and just relax and enjoy a story or two.
