A Look Back at Blog World (10)

A Look Back at Blog World (10)

It's been a few weeks now since I've done one of these posts, so I figured while I was away in NYC, it might be a good time. Let me know what links you like best in the comments!


Books I'm Now Curious to Read:

I found Disclaimer by Renee Knight through a review by Luanne at A Bookworm's World. Please do read her thoughts and learn more about this intriguing book!

What do you think? Is this something you would like to now read too?




Interesting Posts:

The blog Mundie Moms shared a picture from the new illustrated Harry Potter, coming out this fall.

I personally can't wait for this book to come out. I've seen some of the illustrations already released, and I love them!
Life Anchored shared a really cute Road Trip Survival Kit on their blog. They even share a free printable for the sign so you can make your own kit. I'm not going on any road trips this summer, but I really love this idea for a picnic or going to the pool, etc.









AttaGirl Says has a really fun, easy recipe on how to make Edible Sand Art this summer. This is seriously something I'd like to make for myself and I'm in my twenties. I can't imagine how excited a younger kid would be to learn about this! She even includes some free printables so you can label your jars and even set up a Sand Art Station.










Gluesticks shares a cute MARVEL Avengers Survival Kit. This would make a super awesome present for any little Avengers fan in your life. What do you think?

And remember: If you visit any of these links, please leave a comment and let them know that I sent you!!

Questions from the Blog:

The following question was from my review of Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick:

I'm curious to know if this is a compilation of short narratives or if this is an actual plot line that holds a painter, a ghost, a vampire and a viking all one take!

There is an actual plot line. The book goes back in time, but every part of the story forms one cohesive narrative. So in simple terms - not a book of short stories!

Oh my heck, those illustrations are just gorgeous! I need this book! I'm a huge H.P. fan and I just know this will be a great one to have. Thank you so much for sharing it (and the other books as well). For some reason I remember hearing about a new illustrated book but forgot about it until now. So excited to see it!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

I didn't know they were releasing and illustrated Harry Potter, that illustration is just wonderful. I will be on the look out for that one. Edible Sand Art, that is something new. Thanks for piecing this all together. Have a wonderful weekend.

I didn't know about the illustrated Potter but sounds good
