Princess Power 3 The Awfully Angry Ogre By Suzanne Williams
Princess Tansy knows that whenever something terrible occurs in her kingdom, the ogre gets the blame. Yet anyone who challenges him is turned to stone! Tansy’s two oldest brothers have been forbidden to fight the ogre, but they’re determined to try. Can Tansy and her friends save the boys from a horrible fate?
I enjoyed because the story line kept surprising me. I couldn’t put Princess Power 3 The Awfully Angry Ogre down as I wanted to see what occur next.
Thanks are due to Suzanne Williams, for pulling me away from my comfort zone for reading, and into another world of books that I eagerly look forward to exploring.

Psychiatry Review and Canadian Certification Exam Preparation Guide By unknown
one that I could not put down. I was late for a lot of appointments and stayed up late because I had to finish just one more chapter. I would highly recommend this book and can’t wait to read Mr. Quick’s next novel.
Soy solo palabras but wish to be a city By León De la Rosa
“Soy solo palabras but wish to be a city” is a graphic longpoem (that is, one book-length narrative poem illustrated in the style of a comic book) written in Spanglish by León De la Rosa and illustrated by Gui.ra.ga7. Set in the crime-wracked border city Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, this poem explores life in the devastated city through the eyes of an academic and a “superhero” vigilante. León De la Rosa and Gui.ra.ga7 both lived in Juárez while working on this book, and created a pained and passionate ode to their city, as well as to justice and humanity.
Soy solo palabras but wish to be a city was very good. I didn’t want to put this book down when I read it. The ending really left me hanging though. I wish I could know what happens.
is a very thoughtfully written Soy solo palabras but wish to be a city and it is very interesting to read the relationships, and the accomplishments.
Boquet s Expedition and The Relief of Fort Pitt Illustrated By J T Headley
Pontiac's war was fought at Detroit and at Fort Pitt. This is the story of the rescue mission sent to relieve Fort Pitt, release hostages and end the Indian Rebellion in what is now the American midwest.
Don’t know how I found this J T Headley and series, but really have liked his writing and the story he tells. and am looking forward to more stories. And,unlike a lot of books I’ve been reading lately, the grammar and spelling are correct and the story flows smoothly.
Boquet s Expedition and The Relief of Fort Pitt Illustrated was very good I liked it and I would definitely read it again. It was one of the best books I’ve ever read!! 🙂
Under the full moon a motorcycle races west along the Interstate. The police can’t catch it, and it disappears before it reaches the toll bridge. Narrated by the guy who drives the road-killed deer pick-up truck for Fish and Game. Why can’t they find Billy? And what’s in that tar paper shack down the abandoned railroad path? Originally published in 1979, in Easyriders magazine, and reprinted in The Year’s Best Horror Stories, Series VIII, in 1980. Not abject horror or terror — more a haunted feeling. A presence … or a ghost. The idea that something of our identity lives on in the world after we leave. And maybe one more reason to stay alert while driving on the Interstate late at night.
Don’t know how I found this Kevin A. Lyons and series, but really have liked his writing and the story he tells. and am looking forward to more stories. And,unlike a lot of books I’ve been reading lately, the grammar and spelling are correct and the story flows smoothly.
This was a great read. It was my first Mystery as recommended Choice. I’d suggest it to others too.
