Moto and Me

Book #95 Read in 2017
Moto and Me by Suzi Ezrtzhaus

This is a cute read with beautiful pictures, detailing the author's year of being a foster mom to a Serval kitten.  This was especially lovely to me since I have a Savannah, a cat bred from a Serval.  It detailed things Servals eat, how they hunt, how the mothers take care of her kittens and many more things.  It would make a lovely gift for cat lovers.

Book #94 Read in 2017
Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham

I loved the show Gilmore Girls and Lauren Graham is one of my favorite actresses.  In this book,  she details life in Hollywood, talking about her background, her early days, her Gilmore days etc.  She writes in the way I would think Lorelei (her Gilmore Girls character) would talk.  This was an entertaining, quick read.

Book # 92 Read in 2017
Otherworld by Jason Segal and Kirsten Miller

This is the first book in a young adult fantasy series.  Set in a virtual reality world, Simon is a troubled college kid who is back in his hometown in time to see Kat, the girl he is smitten with, get horribly hurt in an accident.  Kat is now part of a virtual reality experiment which may or may not kill her.  Simon goes into the virtual world after her in the hopes of saving her, but realizes a lot of people need saving.  This book was engaging and a quick read, with interesting characters, lots of action, some humor and some romance.  I will continue the series.  I received this book from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for a honest review.

Book #91 Read in 2017
The Pregnancy Project by Gaby Rodriguez

This memoir tells of Gaby's senior project--where she faked a pregnancy--to discuss stereotypes and rumors.  Gaby came from a family of teen moms and did not want to repeat that cycle but people automatically assumed she would.  She decides to fake a whole pregnancy, revealing it to be false at her senior presentation.  She takes note of how people treat her for both good and bad.  This was an engaging read and I would recommend it to high school girls.  I borrowed this book from the public library.

The Boy on the Wooden Box

Book #90 Read in 2017
The Boy on the Wooden Box by Leon Leyson

Leyson was one of the Jewish people saved by Oskar Schindler during the Holocaust.  This book details his story--his childhood, his time in a ghetto, his time in a concentration camp and his new start in America.  It is a powerful book and should be read by high school readers and adults alike.  I borrowed this book from the town library.
