48HBC: Book 3: Forget Me Not

I decided to take a short lunch break with my husband so I just made the five hour mark. I finished Forget Me Not by Colleen Murtagh Paratore. It's book four in The Wedding Planner's Daughter series. This one was charming like the previous books, but not my favorite. Willa is getting older and even though the books are still sweaky clean, you can tell the target audience is trying to widen into the teen market.

This one felt like a middle book-not much happened, it was sort of a placeholder, and it ended with a cliffhanger that is so not fair! But Willa still takes me away to Cape Cod every time, so I can't complain too much!

I'm going to cheer on some fellow challenge readers and then back to reading some more!

  2. I've only read the first of this series and wasn't sure whether I wanted to go back for more. Hmmm. With this review, I think I'll wait.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card.
