My Merry Christmas Journal [Diana Zourelias]

I guarantee you, I would have just loved My Merry Christmas Journal by Diana Zourelias when I was a kid. It's pretty typical for what you might find in a Christmas activity book for kids, of course, but that doesn't take away from how much fun I'm sure a bunch of children are going to have…

October is a Foreign Country; They do Things Differently There.

This month's quote was chosen one hundred percent because October is not my favorite month of the year. For me, it's when things start getting really cold. It's Halloween, which isn't my favorite holiday by any means. It's also when The Nightmare Before Christmas--a movie I happen to hate--crops up. Granted, there are good things about…

Monsters are Afraid of Babies [Nicholas Tana]

I laughed when I first came across Monsters are Afraid of Babies by Nicholas Tana, illustrated by Jessica Abbott and Elise Leutwyler.

Known as Rumblestar in the United Kingdom, Elphinstone's brilliantly woven tale about a shy young boy hiding from bullies who…

Renegades [Marissa Meyer]; Throwback Thursday

I'm revamping Throwback Thursday again! Last time the change was to include the book's synopsis and this time I've decided that it fits my goals a little more to include parts of my review instead, since that's really what TBT for Reader Fox has always been about. This week, in honor of the wonderful Marissa Meyer…

Epic Air Fryer Cookbook [Emily Paster]

I'm not typically a cookbook kind of person. I don't buy them, I rarely peruse them and yet a few weeks ago I went ahead and requested the Epic Air Fryer Cookbook by Emily Paster. And honestly, my reasoning for this was solely because my boyfriend had just bought an air fryer for our apartment. It…

The Little Android [Marissa Meyer]

There's something truly magical about Marissa Meyer's retellings. In so many ways I've fallen in love with every tiny piece of writing that pertains to the world of The Lunar Chronicles. As an avid fan of the story of The Little Mermaid, Meyer's The Little Android is unquestionably a story I've fallen in love with each and every time I…
