The Crazy Daze of Motherhood

The Crazy Daze of Motherhood


by Jane Still

Short, fun, sassy!

From the back of the cover:

"Jane is married to Rick Still, who she believes has the distinction of  being the only man in history brave enough to give her earwax candles  for her birthday. They had six children in eight years, and while her  children were growing up, she discovered she had a great sense of humor.

At least that was her take. Rick once said to her, "Honey, you know all  those real corny things you say all the time? Who ever thought you  could make money at it?" Her son Adam once told her, "Mom, could you  please stop telling jokes to my friends? It's really embarrassing." One  of Jane's philosophies is, "You're not doing your job unless your  children are worried about being seen in public with you.""

I had so much fun reading this book. It's a fresh breeze for mothers. It gives us a glimpse into a world where hope can thrive on humor and not feel so frantic about every ouwie or flooding toilet. I laughed out loud at every turn, and now my kids want to read it!

It makes me think on life and how short it is to be stressing over the little things. I can still be a fun-loving mom at the same time!

  Rated G:  lots of fun stuff going on! Every mother and mother-to-be should read this. And anyone who loves women who are mothers at heart!

The Peasant Queen


By Cheri Chesley

Life has never been better for Krystal of Avolonya. That is, until her brother decides to betroth her to the local village boy who can’t keep his drool to himself.

Repulsed, Krystal finds herself wondering the nearby woods. Should she remain here, and meet her fate with a dreary boy who would probably have her gut fish all day long? Or should she find a better life for herself beyond the forestlands?

It isn’t until she decides running away would prove foolish, when a band of men find her alone—and it is no coincidence. Krystal is thrust into a kingdom filled with magic, love, and betrayal.

            This sweet story enchanted me with its colorful people—even the villains are charming!  Because of the delightful cast of characters, the read passed in a lighthearted pace. I enjoyed experiencing Krystal’s sense of integrity as she remained true to her heart, and how fiercely loyal she is to her friends.

Rated G: Some fight scenes, but no blood or guts, and intrigue

Far World

Water Keep

By J. Scott Savage

Main Characters: Marcus Kanenas, Kyja, Dark Circle, and Master Therapass.

This story is about young boy who was taken away from his home: Far World and was transported to Earth: his new home. Mean while the Dark Circle is looking for him because he is I’m guessing is the healer of his true home world. Why they’re after him? Now that; I won’t tell.

Kyja is also part of the healer world but she is the healer of earth and the Dark Circle is after her as well for the same reason they’re after Marcus.

Right now Marcus and Kyja are looking for all four elementals to open a portal so Marcus can came into far world completely without the worry of being killed in the in between worlds of both Far World and Earth. Mean while Master Therapass is imprisoned by the Dark Circle after he meats Marcus.

Will he be able to get out and complete his mission and protect the two kids?

Can Marcus and Kyja complete they’re mission before the Dark Circle reaches and captures them? Will they be able to convince a water element to come with them? Read and find out!

I don’t like the Dark Circle. They sometimes give me the creeps, but the book is really good in its own way.

What I like about this book is that there is a little bit of romance going on in between Marcus and Kyja. Plus I looooove the way it really HOOKS you! I request that you read it right now! (Sooner or later.)

Rated PG
