YAAAAAAAAAY, book pictures!  I just… I can’t even!  Uhm…so, let’s jump right into this, because…I post a lot of book pictures?! which means there’s not much room to chitchat.

So….in fact, I think I’m just gonna pick my favorites from the last week, because there are a lot and WHO HAS TIME FOR THAT?!  So yes.  My favorites.  TOOOOOTALLY easier, that!

I cannot believe I missed this last week, penguins–where did my brain go?!  I’m SO sorry!  So this week, I’ll include pics from the last TWO weeks, to make it up to you.  Forgive meeeeee?!

I picked this up the other day at a local ShopKo, because I’ve seen the cover around and when I read the back blurb, I ABOUT DIED over the first sentence.  This sounds like it’s super entertaining and right up my alley; I can’t wait to dive in!

Welcome to another #friday56 , book penguins!!!

I’m buddy reading #theneverlandwars by#audreygreathouse with the wonderful PandaPants @anneliselestrange , so figured why not use this#book?!

His eyes were steady in their intensity, but impish in all other manners. They impulsively surveyed the room, never lingering on any particular aspect of it, but always coming back to Gwen. A vine of ivy was wrapped around his waist and strewn across his shoulder like a belt and sash, just barely holding his tattered shirt and shorts to him. His clothes seemed held together with bits of twine and magic. He moved fluidly in his own skin. Gwen wasn’t even conscious of how much she envied his playful motion. Even with his gangly, broad shoulders, he stood tall with a childish sense of confidence.


My thoughts: I’m really going to enjoy Audrey Greathouse’s imagery! This initial introduction to Peter is so gorgeous and enlightening! I can’t wait to see what else this book brings to the table.
The Neverland WarsMagic can do a lot—give you flight, show you mermaids, help you taste the stars, and… solve the budget crisis? That’s what the grown-ups will do with it if they ever make it to Neverland to steal its magic and bring their children home.

However, Gwen doesn’t know this. She’s just a sixteen-year-old girl with a place on the debate team and a powerful crush on Jay, the soon-to-be homecoming king. She doesn’t know her little sister could actually run away with Peter Pan, or that she might have to chase after her to bring her home safe. Gwen will find out though—and when she does, she’ll discover she’s in the middle of a looming war between Neverland and reality.

She’ll be out of place as a teenager in Neverland, but she won’t be the only one. Peter Pan’s constant treks back to the mainland have slowly aged him into adolescence as well. Soon, Gwen will have to decide whether she’s going to join impish, playful Peter in his fight for eternal youth… or if she’s going to scramble back to reality in time for the homecoming dance.
