Book Review: We All Stir The Pot To End Hunger! by Misty Lee Coolidge with Bobbie Bensur

We All Stir The Pot To End Hunger! by Misty Lee Coolidge with Bobbie Bensur is a children's picture book set in a food pantry.  It's located in an unknown city and talks about how people contribute to food pantry . . . anything and everything from donating food to volunteering time. I was thrilled when I was approved by NetGalley and Paw Prints Publishing to receive this book for free in exchange for my honest review.  Originally expected to be published on November 15 of this year, We All Stir The Pot To End Hunger! by Misty Lee Coolidge with Bobbie Bensur came out November 29, 2022. There were some great life lessons in We All Stir The Pot To End Hunger! told in a way that children could understand.  Don't worry, it's not sanctimonious in the least bit.  The illustrations were amazing as well.  This is the perfect book to help children realize that there are families that don't have enough to eat. I love the fact that some of the proceeds from the book will go t

Book Review: The Last To Vanish by Megan Miranda

The Last to Vanish by Megan Miranda opens in Cutter's Pass at The Passage Inn, an upscale hotel in the mountains of North Carolina. Abigail Lovett is the manager at the inn and has been for the last ten years. Even though Abby considers it home, she often still feels like an outsider even though her aunt and uncle built The Passage Inn themselves. All the disappearances over the years throws the town back into the spotlight when the brother of one of those missing appears late one night asking questions. As Abby helps with his investigation, she realizes how little she knows about her friends, coworkers, and the town.

I'd like to thank NetGalley and Scribner for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) that I received for free in exchange for my honest review. I was absolutely thrilled to be chosen to review The Last to Vanish by Megan Miranda, and I wasn't disappointed.

Megan Miranda sure knows how to set the tone and pace to make for an eerie, suspenseful, and heart pounding read. I found myself completely losing track of time while I was immersed in The Last to Vanish. It was that engrossing and fantastic. The only thing that could've made it better for me was if I was staying in a cabin in the Smokey Mountains in North Carolina so that I could've been creeped out completely.

The Last to Vanish is definitely a slow burn read, but with very plausible twists and turns that I didn't expect. There were clues planted very carefully throughout the book that suggests who the killer might be, but there were also red herrings. Because of this, it was easy for me to dismiss the clues, and I didn't figure out who the bad person was until the end, and he/she was presented to me by the author. I'm still thinking about the book several hours after finishing it, and it's definitely one that I will reread down the road. I'm hoping that the author writes a sequel to it . . . that's how much I enjoyed the story.

Five out of five stars is what I give The Last to Vanish by Megan Miranda, and this should be on everyone's "To Be Read" list for 2022. I'm already looking forward to the next novel the author writes.
