Making Toast by Roger Rosenblatt - 166 pages
This was my first book in Dewey's Read-A-Thon! This was a very good memoir. It's great that Roger Rosenblatt was able to capture so many memories of his daughter that died. She left a husband and two kids. Roger and his wife moved in with them and really helped them out a lot. I am glad I read this book and give it 4 out of 5 stars!
The Haunting by Joan Lowery Nixon - 184 pages
This is the second book that I read on Dewey's Read-A-Thon. I got through this one the quickest. This was a great book and I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.
Lia's grandmother passed away and left a house called Graymoss to Lia's mother. Lia's mother wants to move in and adopt a bunch of kids and they can all live there. The only problem is that it is possessed. Lia looked for clues in her great, great grandmother's diary and an old copy of Favorite Tales of Edgar Allan Poe to try to figure out who or what is haunting the house.
Benny & Shrimp by Katarina Mazetti - 209 pages
My friend Staci from Life in the Thumb let me borrow this book, and I am glad she did. This was my 3rd book for the Dewey's Read-A-Thon.
Benny and Shrimp met at the cemetary. Shrimp is a librarian who lost her husband. Benny is a milk farmer. The chapters would go back and forth between Benny and Shrimp's point of view. They seemed like such opposites, but they had such great times together. They are so attracted to each other, but sometimes they spend time apart and think that is it. It is interesting to find out whether or not they end up together or if they are just too different for each other.
