Book Review: The Littlest Bigfoot

18 Oct

1Synopsis: Alice lives life almost invisibly – her family ships her off to school, she doesn’t have a single friend and she knows that she isn’t pretty with her big, bulky frame and her wild hair she calls a mane. So when she saves Millie Maximus’s life at her eighth boarding school, she realizes that she might finally get a chance at friendship.

Millie lives a sheltered life with her family in their village of Bigfoots. That’s right, Millie is a Bigfoot, but all she wants is to become a famous singer and make friends with a No-Fur (or human). When a picture of Millie and Alice lands on a conspiracy theory website, crazed Bigfoot hunters begin the search for Millie’s family – will Alice be able to protect Millie’s village? And will Millie be the friend Alice has been hoping for?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 10/16/17

16 Oct

I was surprisingly able to get a little reading done last week, even with how busy I was. I read What Girls Are Made Of by Elana K. Arnold and The Littlest Bigfoot by Jennifer Weiner and started Race to the Bottom of the Sea by Lindsay Eagar. I’ve got some catching up to do in terms of writing book reviews and posting them, so I hope to post at least a couple this week, so keep your eyes out for those.

Otherwise, this week I plan on finishing up Race to the Bottom of the Sea and ARC of The Traitor’s Game by Jennifer A. Nielsen and maybe getting to The Unicorn Quest by Kamilla Benko. What are you reading this week?


Join Jen from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers and share all of the reading you have done over the week from picture books to young adult novels. Follow the links to read about all of t
