Book Review: Operation Tenley by Jennifer Gooch Hummer

A unique fantasy middle-grade read!

Read | 4/5 stars | Buy your copy of Operation Tenley

Overview: 
Tenley, an elemental teen, is at risk. Mother Nature wants her power and Penny, Tenley’s Fair One (“fairy godmother-ish figure”) has 48 hours to convince Tenley to give up her power or be erased.

What I loved: Unique, entertaining, and had great characters.

What I didn’t: Tenley was annoying for a majority of the book and it was pretty short.

I received a copy from BookSparks in exchange for an honest review.

Book Haul: September 2016

Septembers book haul… it’s a good one!

Holy cow. This past month I’ve accumulated quite a stack of books. 16 total! This definitely isn’t helping my situation (you know, the TBR grows so much faster than you can actually read them. Yeah, that one), but I couldn’t be more thrilled about the reads that I did receive. They all sound amazing. A HUGE thank you to the authors, bookstagrammers, and publishers for sending such incredible reads my way this past month! I don’t know how I’ll ever be able to choose…

Wrap Up: September 2016

A busy September and good reads.

September was a little crazy. I flew to Nevada to go house hunting, put in an offer, got the offer accepted, packed up our home in Denver, made a big Uhaul move into storage in Nevada, flew back home to prep the Denver house to go on the market, and now I’m back in Nevada playing catch up!! Phew! What a month it has been. We’re thrilled to be so close to closing on our new home soon and it’s very bittersweet to see our home in Denver go on the market. We know it will be just as good to the new family as it was to us and can’t wait to begin our transition into life in Nevada.

Other than that crazy mess called life, I’ve been able to read a little bit here and there. I managed to read 2 comics/graphic novels, 1 poetry collection, and 3 books. I enjoyed everything I read and as you know loved some more than others. If I had to choose I’d say my favorite thing I read that month was Alex + Ada. It was just so surprising and beautiful. So happy to have volume 2 arriving soon and to continue on with it. You can watch my September wrap up below and don’t forget to subscribe because FULL reviews of each are headed your way soon 🙂
