Second Chance Sunday – Want to Go Private? by Sarah Darer Littman

Second Chance Sunday – W..

This edition of Second Chance Sunday is Sarah Darer Littman’s disturbingly realistic book Want to Go Private?. I still  get the chills thinking about this book it was that real and scary especially in a world where teens live on the internet. This book looks at what happens when a child is unsupervised online for the most part and the dangers that they may face. I warn anyone that is a parent and read this it will freak you out. I’m not a parent and it freaked me out thinking of my 14 year old godchild and how easy it […]

Review: The Iron King – Julie Kagawa

Review: The Iron King – ..

So you may have noticed if you look at my current reading choices that I am reading things outside of my normal comfort zone. Graceling, Shatter Me and now The Iron King are all books I would never normally read. It started with Graceling and has since become my own personal challenge. Every month I am reading a book that I wouldn’t normally gravitate to. For February that book was The Iron King and what a great choice it was. A friend suggested I read it for this “challenge” and I took her up on it. At times I felt […]
