Synopsis: Winterset Hollow - Jonathan Edward Durham - September 2021

Everyone has wanted their favorite book to be real, if only for a moment. Everyone has wished to meet their favorite characters, if only for a day. But be careful in that wish, for even a history laid in ink can be repaid in flesh and blood, and reality is far deadlier than fiction . . . especially on Addington Isle.Winterset Hollow follows a group of friends to the place that inspired their favorite book-a timeless tale about a tribe of animals preparing for their yearly end-of-summer festival. But after a series of shocking discoveries, they find that much of what the world believes to be fiction is actually fact, and that the truth behind their beloved story is darker and more dangerous than they ever imagined. It's Barley Day . . . and you're invited to the hunt.

Winterset Hollow is as thrilling as it is terrifying and as smart as it is surprising. A uniquely original story filled with properly unexpected twists and turns, Winterset Hollow delivers complex, indelible characters and pulse- pounding action as it storms toward an unforgettable climax that will leave you reeling. How do you celebrate Barley Day? You run, friend. You run.Image preview

Review: Rebel Girls - Powerful Pairs ( Rebel Girls Brand)

Rebel Girls Powerful Pairs: 25 Tales of Mothers and Daughters

Review: Rebel Girls - Powerful Pairs - February 2022

One of the brands I wish was around when I was younger and growing up was the Rebel Girls brand as I definitely would have appreciated them more back then, than I do now. I still enjoy reading them and they are quick reads as each story is just one page long. I think if you have children aged 5-9 years old, these would make great bedtime stories as they are single pages -so not too long and then you can also have a great discussion afterward and also instil some positive and strong female role models into your daughters and nieces. Also, the other thing that I loved about Powerful Pairs was it helps celebrate that amazing and strong bond between Mothers and Daughters. For me, I lost my mother when I was 27 and at the end of this month on the 29th December, it will be 8 years since she passed away. In this collection, we also read several different profiles from past heroes and icons like Marie Curie to modern-day heroes like Beyonce. The other thing I did enjoy was it also spotlighted and told the story of lesser-knowns like athletes Lena and Bhakti Sharma who were the first mother-daughter duo to swim the English Channel in 2008. As this book doesn't come out till February, why not put a pre-order on it and get it as a post- Christmas present for your daughters and nieces. As I said this book is perfect for all ages as if you are aged 5-9 it can be used as a read-aloud between parent/child and if you are 9-15 years - you can read it by yourself and still enjoy not only the stories but the artwork and who knows, by reading this you may discover a new role model and a new potential career path to go down.
