Millionaires For The Month Review

Millionaires for the Month by Stacy McAnulty

's review

it was amazing

McAnulty brings her A-game to this book. The story is thoroughly delightful and kept me reading long past bedtime. I loved the relationship between the two very different characters, and I imagine researching the details for this book was a blast.

I admit, the back matter of the book made me want to run away screaming, but I didn't because my husband was asleep next to me. For those of you who enjoy math (and seeing anything involving figuring out X doesn't make you break out in a flop sweat), there are all kinds of activities that could be done throughout the book as the characters manage their money, and there are details in the back explaining many mathy things (that I skipped). Math teachers everywhere can enjoy teaming up with the reading teachers!

I highly recommend this for middle grade and YA readers -- and adults as well. What would you buy with a million dollars?

Book Launch Day: The Tigran Chornicles Is Here!!


Wait! It IS October 1st! Happy Book Birthday to The Tigran Chronicles

This novel has been in the works for the last few years, and I'm delighted to share it with you. This is not a part of any of my current series but may be the beginning of a new one. In case you missed all my other posts about this novel, here's the detail:

Being part tiger and part human should be an advantage—
not lead to your extermination.

Taliya, a seventeen-year-old tigran, has been forced to flee her country home and go into hiding to escape the Enforcers and the Gathering that began in 2172, orchestrated by President Kerkaw and his corrupt martial law of the United States. But it isn’t long before Taliya is captured and forced into a covert military breeding program. Paired with a magnificent male white tigran named Kano, Taliya is determined to survive, whatever the cost, but she is only at the beginning of her journey. What awaits her is more challenging and life-changing than she ever could have imagined.

If you want to join in some book launch fun, here's a jigsaw puzzle of the cover. I completed it in 6:08. Can you beat me?? 

You can get your own copy of The Tigran Chronicles at Amazon, directly from me (if you'd like a signed copy with a matching bookmark), or on ebook from nearly every other source. 

Happy Fall. And Happy Reading!!
