I am Martin Luther King, Jr. by Brad Meltzer

This amazing book aimed at children around the ages of 4 to 6 covers the life of Martin Luther King Jr. I honestly think this is a must read for children. The book goes over some of the most important and memorable events occurring during Dr. King's life that to this day continue to be a source of inspiration.

Originally read this book in February of 2016 and I loved the way this book inspired a dialogue as the children asked questions about why Dr. King did the things he did and why he fought for equality.

Marvel's Captain America: Sub Rosa by David McDonald

This is not a graphic novel. It’s a chapter book more ideal for young readers in the 10-14 age group. Granted anyone can really read it, but based on the formatting and language it comes off as more for young readers than little children.

The story was intriguing enough that I got over it not being a graphic novel.

Must Love Wieners (A Rescue Dog Romance #1) by Casey Griffin

Main Guy: Aiden Caldwell
Main Girl: Piper Summers

This was so total romcom. You have all these crazy, crazy misunderstandings. Like honestly I have no idea how Piper got through life; Aiden of course is the rich hero, so he doesn't really have struggles.

Aiden is trying to be this super anonymous, benevolent guy, so it kind of gets a little strange when things really hectic. Towards the end everything gets resolved in a super nice and tidy bow and they can get their happily ever after.

My total favorite scene was when piper makes huge major discovery and she's running out of Aiden’s offices and she's dressed in her Supergirl costume so that was like so so awesome. Here she was like “oh my God I just saw you talking about the thing the cops are looking into” and here she dressed as Supergirl catching the bad guy in the act, how kick ass is that.

This story with a little bit of everything, especially a lot of super adorable doggies is a nice relaxing weekend read enjoy.

His Australian Heiress by Margaret Way

Main Guy: Brendon
Main Girl: Charlotte 

How I got through this one is beyond me.

I hated the characters and found them sooooo boring and so martyr-ish that I was hoping a piano would fall on them and liven things up.

And her family; ugh, like seriously you’re loaded you don't need this, they’re aholes, just hit delete and be rid of them.

Now, as I’m a sucker for friends to lovers, I have to give props for that.
