Review: My niece is kind of obsessed with ballerinas at the moment and when I saw this book I couldn't pass it up. It is a cute story of a girl who gets a tutu and wants to wear it wherever she goes, even if it causes a little bit of inconvenience. When it gets ripped, she decides that maybe tutus are good to wear sometimes, but the rest of the time play clothes are a good idea and more comfortable. It's a cute tale of a little girl that is sure to resonate with the little girls in your life. Read more
Review: I would have given it a 5 star rating but the list isn't correct. There are two movies that are in the book but are not in the checklist at the beginning of the book: Shadow of A Doubt and The Dark Knight. Read more
Review: honestly, I bought this book on a whim--while I liked the drawings from the sketchbooks, this volume came across too Forest J Ackerman for my taste and less conceptional--however, if fan stuff is your cup of tea and you want to peek at the things peeking back at you in his house then get it--as an artist, I would have been more excited to have been treated to production from start to finish--I get that, to many, he is a god and he well deserves that accolade but I was looking more for the artist...

Review: This book was a bit of a disappointment. It was very short; I finished it in about 30 mins. (It's true.)The pictures were good, but I wanted more pics of tributes in the arena... the book ended with Katniss in the launching room... overall, a waste of precious time and money. I wish I'd never gotten this. Is it possible to remove books from your account and get your money back too?
ps. If you're wondering why I gave this book three stars if I didn't like it, I haven't seen the movie and seein... Read more
Review: For me I didn't dislike anything. If you're a young or young-ish girl then I would absolutely recommend this book. It's everything that I read in terms on genre so that just made it even better. I think this book is witty, and felt my heart hurt a little at some points. However, the jabs at 1D could be toned down, don't mess with my boys: ? Read more
Review: I was excited to see a new Beautiful Creature book out since I really enjoyed. I couldn't wait to see the gang together again and especially the aunts that make me laugh out loud. This book is about Link and Ridley which are two of my favorite characters, but the book just didn't work for me. Too much of a downer and then it leaves you hanging. Read more
Review: "Imagine there's no heaven, it's easy if you try.
There's be no hell below us, above us only sky." -- John Lennon, 1971
John Lennon "Lennie" and her sister Bailey are inseparable. The girls depend on each other and their maternal grandmother as their natural mother abandoned them when they were toddlers. Their "Gram" always refers to the "restless gene" that their mother had and fears the girls might have inherited.
Bailey is flamboyant, daring, an eagle in flight. John Lenno... Read more
Review: Allyson Healey has always been the good girl, which is why she's not exactly sure why she's ditching the rest of her tour group to see an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England.

So, against all her inhibitions, she goes off with him to Paris for a day that she will never forget. And it's ... Read more
Review: I'm ashamed to admit that this wasn't the first card trick book I ever bought. This book walks you through every amateur sleight of hand any card-magician-to-be could ever hope to learn with a bounty of helpful illustrations, along with very deep text. While some of it is a little difficult to wade through, it is well worth the effort. The tricks, with rare exception, are excellent, and the way in which they are taught is very user-friendly. Instead of teaching seven or eight sleights of h... Read more
Review: How Pam Muñoz Ryan does what she does is magical, as is this book. Three World War Two-era young people are tied together by the musical magic of an enchanted harmonica that is passed among them as, each time, a gift of love and kindness. With a magical twist and a solid historical fiction timeline, this unique tale is a must-read. Boys and girls will equally see something to connect with as they learn important lessons about American history, a world at war, and the healing majesty of music. Read more
