Review: Dying to meet you by Kate Klise and M. Sarah Klise

Hi everyone!!! :)

I hope you're very well and today I want to share with you my thoughts on this book.

6150990

What is this book about?: It's about a writer who decides to rent a house where he can write his next book. When he goes to the house, he finds out that a boy and his cat are living there and he has to take care of them.

My thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book very much and I didn't expect that. I thought since it was a children book, I was going to like it, but I have to say that I had a great experience reading.

The first thing that attracted me was how the book was made. The story is told through letters that different characters send to each other and newspaper cuttings. I found that really cool especially when the letters have different fonts depend on who is writing the letter.

The second thing was the illustrations. I really liked them and I think it gave to the book a nice touch.

Another thing that I liked it was the fact that it was easy to read. You can read it in just one day.

Although it's a children book, I think it's for children from 11 years old or so. I wouldn't give this book to younger readers.

I had a great time reading it and definitely I'm going to carry on reading the rest books in the series.

My Rating: ****

Review: Tales of winter by Grégoire Solotareff

Hi everyone!!! :)

I hope you're very well and today I want to share with you what I think about this book:

Cuentos de Invierno

What is this book about?: This book is a compilation of very short story (2 or 3 pages long) and they are about the daily life of elves, animals and in some cases Santa Claus.

My thoughts:

One thing that I liked about this book was the fact that you could read, if you wanted, a story every day. There was even a date at the beginning of each story. I didn't do that because I had to return the book before the winter finished, but it'd be interested to do it in that way.

Also I liked that the characters were animals and elves. I tend to read a lot of contemporary and this book was an interesting change.

While I was reading it, I got sick and I liked that the stories were adventurous and curious events that happened to them more than something dramatic. I really appreciated that and I was glad I read it in that moment.

I think everybody would enjoy this book, especially children. Since the stories are very short you can read aloud one story every day.

Since I enjoy more contemporary and this one was more fantasy I liked it, but I didn't love it. He has more tales: spring tales, summer tales and fall tales and I'm going to read them in the season. I think it'd be fun to do it in this way :)

My rating: ***
