The Christmas Project

A review copy was provided

Actors: Jacob Buster, Anson Bagley, Grace Hallows, Gabe White, Alison Akin Clark
Director: Michael Buster
This movie will have you giggling and laughing one minute and then feeling the Christmas spirit the next-- Fun antics of a family full of boys, rival enemies, and a Christmas tradition all come together to show you that sometimes being a hero means you let go of the need to be right! This movie will definitely be a family favorite! 

Even with Christmas around the corner, for the Buckley boys, payback almost always wins out over brotherly love. That is until the four brothers join forces against a common adversary—the Hagbarts—the meanest bullies at their middle school.

But now Mom has decided that the Buckley family is going to Elve the Hagbarts this year for Christmas.

Eleven-year-old Matthew can hardly stand it. By day the Hagbarts torture the Buckley brothers into submission, and by night the Buckleys secretly deliver Christmas treats and gifts to their sworn enemies.

Soon the war of wits escalates to an incredible scheme designed to get the ultimate revenge on the Hagbarts.

But now that Matthew has been learning that he's supposed to do good to those who hate him, what will he do when a little push becomes a great big shove?

The Christmas Project is a heartwarming comedy the whole family will love.

by Traci Hunter Abramson

I really believe that authors are stepping it up this year!
This book is SO GOOD! And so well written!
Just when you think you have it all figured out a twist is thrown at you--making you read even faster to figure out if you've really figured it out. 
LOVED this one! Loved the beginning, the middle, and the end! This is one you are going to want to read and read and read. You won't put it down until the last page is turned--and then you will want even more! 
I highly recommend this book!

Unexpectedly reunited after six years, high school sweethearts Devin Shanahan and Grace Harrington cross paths and have a whirlwind wedding. A lot can change in six years, however, and they must figure out how to make their two independent lives mesh. Unable to disclose his CIA job to his new wife, when Devin is assigned a top-secret mission to Hong Kong, he tells Grace part of the truth: that he is going to work abroad for six months in finance. But when the mission turns deadly and Devin doesn’t know whom to trust, he must make the most difficult decision of his life in an effort to keep Grace safe.

Will the seeds of deception prove destructive to their newly formed marriage? And will the love that brought them together be the very thing their enemies use to tear them apart?

Blissfully Married

by Victorine E. Lieske

I adore sweet, fun romances like this one! 
Cute story line of bringing the past and the present together in an awkward way--so like true life. Oh, the things we do for love and pride. Sidney and Blake will quickly find a way into your heart. You will be anxious for each encounter they have together--such great writing! I have read every book in this series and have absolutely loved each one. 

From NYT's best selling author of NOT WHAT SHE SEEMS.

Sidney’s matchmaking business is suffering. When her best friend convinces her to put on a fake engagement ring to boost customer confidence in her, she reluctantly agrees. Couldn’t hurt to try, right? And when her childhood crush comes walking in, she’s glad to have her fake engagement as an excuse not to get involved with him. He shattered her heart ten years ago, and she can’t take another painful Blake incident.

Blake can’t believe it when he sees Sidney, all grown up. She looks amazing. But she’s also off limits, or so he thinks. When he finds out she’s not really engaged, he’s confused as to why Sidney would lie to him. He makes it his goal to coax the truth out of her, even if he has to go to great lengths to do it.

Blissfully Married is a sweet romance, with no graphic content. This can be read as a stand-alone novel.

Penguin Problems

by Jory John
illustrated by Lane Smith

This book had me giggling out loud- 
Amazing creativity! Darling pictures!
You think you have problems--
Wait until you read about a penguin's problems!
Every kid needs a copy of this--even us big kids :)

A penguin levels with human readers about what penguin life is really like—and it isn’t all fun and games.

(Click on the pictures to make them more readable)

Have you ever considered running away to Antarctica? Of course you have! Because it’s a land free of worries and responsibilities! All of your problems will surely be blown away by the icy winds of that lawless paradise! . . . Won’t they?

Think again, my friend. This penguin has come to tell you that his life down there is no more a picnic than yours is here. For starters, it is FREEZING. Also, penguins have a ton of natural predators. Plus, can you imagine trying to find your mom in a big ol’ crowd of identical penguins? No, thank you.

Yes, it seems there is no escaping the drudgery of your daily grind, whatever it might be. Or perhaps we’ve just learned that grumps are everywhere. . . .
