Feature and Follow: Picture Books

Friday: Feature and Follow 
Feature and Follow is  hosted by Parajunkee and Alison, two awesome bloggers how have established a great feature for all of us bloggers and readers to get to know each other.  By sharing with other bloggers we get to forget about the vastness of the web and reunite with a common purpose: book related stuff!

So, I will make a stop at a lot of blogs this day.  If you pay me a visit at Jessy's Bookends, and I hope you do, you can follow like this:


What are some of your favorite picture books?

From my childhood, I remember going to my school's library every two days.  I used to pick one or two books and to spend some time browsing.  Do you remember those pop ups books? I loved to open them and watch for a castle to pop out.  and these days  we still get to find great ones.  Well, I used to check out fables and with the passing years, fables where changed for other genres.

When I was in Middle School I loved a mystery/ horror series where the ending would be decided by the reader's choices.  It gave options like (example):

page 14 you go up the stairs
page 20 you opened the door

Sadly, I can't remember the title anymore. Uhhh... 

Now, I read children books with my daughters. These are some of the titles I have read with them and which we have enjoyed!

About A Match Made In Heaven (from goodreads):
Aspiring comic book artist Morning Glory Conroy already has too much to juggle at her San Francisco high school--mean girls, inconsiderate cliques, wannabe gangbangers--without the complication of falling for new student Gabriel. Glory's best friend, Julia, was interested in him first, and if it weren't for Julia's deteriorating home life, Glory wouldn't have had a chance to get Gabriel to herself. But does he count as a real boyfriend if his overbearing guardian forbids even kissing? Soon Gabriel is pushing Glory to show her work at art events, and the new relationship starts taking Glory away from her bff just when Julia needs her. Glory is in for a startling revelation when she discovers not only Gabriel&#…

Emerald City Review & Author Interview + Giveaway!

I received this book via Netgalley.  I had been drawn to the phrase on it's cover: "They say it's darkest just before dawn".  That phrase reflects a big deal of emotion. I couldn't wait to read this book. Later, the opportunity to be part of this blog tour presented and here is my review for this book by author Alicia K. Leppert.
