The Host

You know how I am about Stephenie Meyer - so when I saw she had an adult novel out - OF COURSE I put it on hold. The Host - took me quite awhile to get into - like 100 pages - but once I was in - I WAS IN!!! What a great read. Not my usual fare, a little more sci-fi than I like - but hey, she stretched me with vampires - guess I can be stretched again!!

It's an intriguing read - even made me question things like - the value of life, you know, all that good stuff!!! I don't think you'll be disappointed - in my humble opinion - Stephenie CAN'T disappoint!!! To read more on the book, go visit her website.

If you remember THIS post, you will know that Mayra Calvani isn't new to my blog! And this time she has another fun book for kids. Crash is a tender story of a little boy, Marcelo, that gets a puppy for his birthday. He has to train it - and he can do that - BUT naming it is another story altogether! It is such a task for Marcelo to find a name for his pup UNTIL...... You will have to read it to find out! What a fun story - and it especially hits home with me as we are still in the throes of puppy-hood as well!

Mayra is a multi-genre author, reviewer, dog lover and animal advocate. Mayra Calvani hails from San Juan, Puerto Rico. She's a regular contributor to Blogcritics Magazine and American Chronicle. When she is not writing, she enjoys reading, playing the violin, interviewing other authors for her blogs and newsletters, watching reruns of Gilmore Girls, and walking her golden retriever, Amigo. She’s the author of the picture book, The Magic Violin, also published by Guardian Angel Publishing.

Crash has his own blog - you will want to go check it out! What a great cause too, Mayra is donating 50% of her royalties to Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary, Inc. Oh, and one more thing - if you leave a comment on one of Mayra's blog tour stops, you will be in a drawing for a gift certificate to the Almost Heaven gift shop!!!
