Book Review: Read To Death At The Lakeside Library (Lakeside Library Mystery, #3) by Holly Danvers

Read To Death At The Lakeside Library (Lakeside Library Mystery, #3) by Holly Danvers opens in Lofty Pines, Wisconsin with library owner Rain Wilmot getting ready to host her first book club and discuss Agatha Christie's Sparkling Cyanide .  When one of the members dies under suspicious circumstances, Rain and best friend Julia take it on themselves to become amateur sleuths to find out what happens. I'd like to thank NetGalley and Crooked Lane Books for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Read To Death At The Lakeside Library (Lakeside Library Mystery, #3) by Holly Danvers.  Being a huge Agatha Christie fan, I knew I wanted to read Holly Danvers' latest book since the storyline revolved around one of Christie's novels.  When I was approved to receive a copy for free in exchange for my honest review, I was happy. All in all, I really enjoyed reading Read To Death At The Lakeside Library .  It was a super cute and fun read . . . a beach read if you will.  The only thing

Book Review: Karen's Worst Day (Baby-Sitters Little Sister, #3) by Ann M. Martin

Karen's Worst Day (Baby-Sitters Little Sister, #3) by Ann M. Martin opens with Karen Brewer starting her day off wrong when she has a nightmare and falls out of bed.  Things go from bad to worse for Karen, and she's sure nothing will go right.

This series is perfect for kids who aren't old enough to read The Baby-Sitters Club by Ann M. Martin, and it's also perfect for children who have divorced parents since the main character has parents who are no longer together.

As for this edition of the Baby-Sitters Little Sister book series, it gives kids a chance to see that if they're having a bad day that it can and will get better, and if parents read it as well, it gives them the perfect opportunity to discuss the topic with their child or children.  With that being said, nothing really happens in Karen's Worst Day.  It's just a day in the life of a six year old girl.  The best lesson of the book is that Karen apologized to the people she treated poorly.

I do love the fact that the television shows of Mr. Ed and The Muppet Babies are mentioned, but I doubt that many children even know what those shows are nowadays, and I'm very surprised that those shows weren't updated in the reprints of the book.  I'm not complaining about it . . . just making an observation.  Maybe it will lead to an uptick of parents tracking down those shows online to show their kids, which would be awesome in my opinion.

Three out of five stars is what I gave Karen's Worst Day (Baby-Sitters Little Sister, #3) by Ann M. Martin.  I'm looking forward to seeing how the series progresses as I only read a book or two when they first came out.
