    Not a bad story but I don't think I'll continue with the series (except I'm listening to Orgins now because it started right after the novel). With this week being shark week and I keep seeing stuff about sharks, I thought why not read a shark book. I loved the movie so I picked this one. I guess my imagination just isn't as good as the movie made it because the book fell flat. I'm thinking from now on I'll just watch shark movies on shark week!

    This book was excellent! It was well written and I would recommend to anyone interested in learning more about Kamala Harris and her core beliefs.

    I didn't enjoy this short story collection at all. I love Grady Hendrix, but this one was a disappointing miss for me.

    A VERY good book about a teen named Eona who disguises herself as a boy in order to train to be a dragoneye apprentice. But when she is rejected by the dragon she's supposed to be chosen by and is instead chosen by a dragon nobody has seen in 500 years a intricate and complicated plot emerges involving the throne, a traitorous uncle, and a dangerous secret. And it all has to do with Eona and her dragon. 15+

    Circle Of Friends

    Wonderful to read, even though I'm 81 years old I can see myself in the story. It probably helps because she is one of my favorite authors. Since being quarantined, it seems like all I do is quilt and read. I'm very grateful that I enjoy both things a lot.

    Cute short clean read. Likeable characters. Stand alone but part of a series.

    I Am Leonardo Da Vinci
    by Brad Meltzer

    View in Library Catalog

    I really enjoy this series of books! The illustrations are fun and keep kids interested while also learning fun and important facts. One thing that I never knew (pretty sure we were never told this in school!) is that Da Vinci is NOT his last name but instead tells where he's from. So when people just call him Da Vinci, they could be talking about anyone from Vinci, Italy! :-) This man did many brilliant things in his lifetime. I liked seeing actual pictures of his stuff too.
