Review: A Girl Walks Into a Wedding: Your Fantasy, Your Rules

A Girl Walks Into a Wedding: Your Fantasy, Your Rules
A Girl Walks Into a Wedding: Your Fantasy, Your Rules by Helena S. Paige
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

When I read that this book is basically a choose your own adventure for adults, I had to check it out. Although it’s a little too he did this and she did that, it was still kind of cute and entertaining. Nothing too deep, thought-provoking or serious. This erotic romp offers a variety of options which often left me wanting to read more so I could learn more about the characters. Did her one night stand in Paris turn into more? I don’t know, it ends there! Not much more to say. Not much to the book or the stories, just fun.

Review: Penguin and Pinecone

Penguin and Pinecone
Penguin and Pinecone by Salina Yoon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t frequently review children’s books, or board books, but this board book is a must-read if you have small children. It has a coherent and endearing story to it and cute illustrations. In this book, Penguin meets a pinecone who is cold, so he knits him a scarf. They become friends, but then Penguin realizes that where he lives is too cold for the Pinecone. He takes Pinecone to a forest and leaves him there, and goes back home. Later, he misses Pinecone and wonders if he grew big like he did. He traveled to find Pinecone and yes, Pinecone had grown into a nice big tree. Penguin and Pinecone play together, but Penguin has to leave again. Pinecone is sad his friend has to leave him for a colder climate, but the message of the story is that they can be friends and in each other’s hearts, even far apart, because they love each other.
