The Wednesday Wars by Gary Schmidt

Yes, this is kind of a cheater post.  I have already reviewed this book for our other book blog BeTween Books, but it's good enough to review again here.  Plus, the emergency plumber just left, my kids are still awake and I'm day one into a 30-day Paleo diet challenge.  Cheater post beats no post at all, right?

My good friend Sharlene politely shoved this book at me loaned me this book to read.  Being that her living room is literally three walls of bookcases (and it even contains this really cool lamp made out of books) when Sharlene says a book, "is something every human being on this planet should read" I take note.  I also make note to hurry up and finish said book because along with Sharlene's book recommendations come Sharlene's timelines.  I got right to work and finished this one in three days, although I could have read it in one.  Please don't tell Sharlene.

Written in 2007, The Wednesday Wars is about an 11-year-old  boy growing up in Long Island.  The year is 1967 and because Holling Hoodhood is neither Catholic nor Jewish and does not have a Hebrew or Catechism class to attend on Wednesdays, he finds himself the only student in 7th grade.  Just Holling the Presbyterian, and his teacher, Mrs. Baker every Wednesday for the entire school year.  At first, Mrs. Baker has him keep himself busy by cleaning the classroom, the coat room and even worse, the desks.  But as time passes, she has him start reading Shakespeare and writing essays.  Clearly annoyed and starting to hate her even more, Holling has no choice but to comply.   His compliance leads to an eventual appreciation of Shakespeare which in a round-about way gets him the starring role in a local play.  Although he must wear tights as the star of the play, the rest of his year is filled with normal 7th-grade-boy things.  A girl crush.  Sneaking away from school to watch Yankee baseball games.  A love/hate relationship with his older sister.  But what is not normal and the most wonderful part of the book is the warm and inspiring bond he forms with Mrs. Baker.  They navigate the year together one Wednesday at a time and find that more often than not they are all each other has.  They are exactly what the other one needs during some of the most difficult moments in their lives.  It is a beautiful relationship and a very well-written book.

One major highlight for me was Holling and his love of baseball. I couldn't help but think of my dad as a young Holling. I was reminded of the baseball stories my dad would tell me about when he was growing up around the same time.  Being a baseball-aholic myself, I loved that Holling and his teacher shared their love of the game. 

As I mentioned before, the book is set in 1967.  That means the Vietnam War was center stage as were air raid drills and telegraphs from the front.  Mrs. Baker's grown son is serving his first tour, air raid sirens go off almost daily and telegraph deliveries arrive at the school way too often.  Again, the war part of this book touched home to me but it was also extremely relevant to the time period.

I can't say enough good things about this book.  It's touching and sweet and appropriate in so many ways.  My almost 5th-grader did read it last summer without me knowing and absolutely loved it. However, I wish she would have waited a year or two.  She is an advanced reader, so that was not the problem.  The problem was that a lot of the book went right over her head.  She had no clue what Vietnam was (sadly, she just figured it was another war like the ones we are in now), thought the air raid drills were something they made up, and didn't see what all the fuss about the main character meeting Mickey Mantle was all about  (obviously I have failed her in the baseball history department).  Basically, the historical parts of the book were wasted on her.  I think for that reason it is more appropriately suited for 12-18 year-olds.

The Wednesday Wars has secured a spot in my Top Five Favorites of all time.  Yes, it really is THAT good.  Read it.  Or I will tell Sharlene. Pin It

Shadow Show edited by Sam Weller & Mort Castle

I finished reading Shadow Show on the train ride back from Tahoe.  That was at the very beginning of August.  I thought I'd review it right away, but I couldn't.  I went into it with rich expectations, on a high from re-reading The Illustrated Man, but the reality of finishing it was a slog.  It wasn't horrendous, but it was work, and I struggled to rectify how anything written in the spirit of Ray Bradbury could be work.  But it was, so I put it away.

With a heartfelt sigh, I pulled it back out today so that I could write a review.  After all, we didn't start this blog just to act as relentlessly perky cheerleaders (and I have years of cheerleading camp under my belt so I know of which I speak). We started it so we could share recommendations, from the sublime to the simply awful.  With that sense of duty, I picked Shadow Show up again.

And, I realized that if I could sum up the book in one phrase, it would be this:

That's Italian for "so-so".

Shadow Show is anthology of short stories written by authors who credit Ray Bradbury as an inspiration and a mentor.  It's meant to celebrate his life and his works. As with any collection of stories penned by different hands, it's uneven.  Some of a stories are delights that I would recommend you read even without the Bradbury association.  The rest? Well, they elicited responses ranging from indifference to indignity.  I suppose it was that uneven performance that made reading the book feel like such work to me.  As we've pointed out in reviews of The Illustrated Man and Something Wicked This Way Comes, reading Ray Bradbury is easy and beautiful.  Shadow Show has it's moments, but typically misses that mark.

Had the book been printed without a single Bradbury reference, I might have liked it more, I think,  because I would have expected less.  But with the build-up as a tribute to Bradbury's influence, the few stories that did him--in my humble opinion--a disservice overwhelmed my appreciation from the truly good stories.

Now, if you aren't the total Bradbury fangirl that I am, you might react more favorably, but I strongly discourage your from reading anything Bradbury right before you pick this up.

With that said, here are the names of the short stories that really worked--on their own and as Bradbury tributes:

"The Man Who Forgot Ray Bradbury" by Neil Gaiman
"Headlife" by Margaret Atwood
"Heavy" by Jay Bonansinga
"By The Silver Water of Lake Champlain" by Joe Hill
"Children of the Bedtime Machine" by Robert McCannon
"Conjure" by Alice Hoffman
"Backward in Seville" by Audrey Niffenegger
"Hayleigh's Dad" by Julia Keller

For those of you wondering, there are 27 tales all told, so this list comprises one-third of the total count. So, again, not horrendous, but overwhelmingly not Ray.

Worlds Apart by Kate Mathias AND author Q&A

Every once in a while, all of the time I spend on Facebook pays off.  This is one of those times.   You see, I am Facebook friends with someone I swam with in high school. (If you are picturing bad 90's hair, too much chlorine and the dreaded swimsuit photos for the annual yearbook, that would be pretty accurate).   I saw in my news feed a couple of months ago that Josh's (the guy I used to swim with) wife (Kate) was writing a book.   Say what?!  Hoping Josh would not think I was crazy for Facebook stalking him, I messaged him and told him about our little blog and offered to write a review.  Thankfully, he didn't think I was crazy, told me to go for it and so I did.  Last week, I downloaded Kate's newly released book, read it in two days and am excited to announce that I really liked the book AND that an author Q&A with Kate follows this review.  I think I may start Facebook stalking more often!  But first, the review.

Stay tuned.  You could win a copy!

Piper Reynolds is an energetic teacher, loyal daughter and fun-loving aunt.  Pregnant with twins and ready to start a new life with soon-to-be husband Joe, things are going great for Piper.  So why does Piper keep coming face to face with Pip, a woman who looks just like her in some sort of parallel reality?  Over time, Piper and Pip discover that they are drawn to each other during their greatest times of need.  Their recurring "jumps" into each others lives serve as the foundation for a bond that seems to lasts a lifetime.  Pip is there when Piper delivers the twins and again when one of the twins is diagnosed with leukemia.  Conversely, Piper is there for Pip when Pip is the victim of an attack.  The "jumps" aren't permanent, however, and they never know how long they will stay in each others lives.  When Pip turns up as a "perfect match" bone marrow donor for Piper's son, it's almost too good to be true.  But can she stay in Piper's world long enough for the donation?  Will her own husband Joe still be understanding and waiting for her if and when she returns back to her own reality?   And the biggest questions of all:  can their bond withstand a fatal car accident?   Sorry to leave you hanging, but you will have to read it for yourself to find out. 

Loyal readers of this blog may be surprised to learn that I really, really liked this book.  I'm not so much a fan of para-anything.  I don't have the best imagination and it's hard for me to get excited about something I don't think could actually happen in real life.  This book proved me wrong.  Why?  I think because the plot was SO unexpected (I can't stress enough how original the storyline is) and the numerous twists and turns kept me wondering what would happen next.  Normally, I would find numerous twists to be tiresome but in this case all of the twists were actually believable.   Everything that happened to the characters was something that I could actually imagine taking place.  And something about the characters made me want to keep reading to find out what happened next.

Speaking of characters, Mathias did a great job of letting us get to know the characters with just the right amount of detail.  (I do so love an author that gets in and gets to the story!) I can't really point to any character I didn't like (besides the guy that attacked Pip, of course).  As a matter of fact, the entire cast of characters seemed relatable and strong.  Kind of refreshing compared to some of my latest reads.  Worlds Apart is a quick read as well, which is always a bonus for a mom with two kids on summer vacation.  I only had to ignore them a few times to finish this book.  :)

Kate Mathias
As an extra bonus we are also featuring our very first author Q&A!  Read below to find the answers to some of our questions for Kate. 

1.  What book are you currently reading?

I just started reading Double Clutch by Liz Reinhardt.  I am enjoying it so far!  I usually read about 2-3 books a week.  I read daily while working out on my elliptical and love to support my fellow indie authors by reading their books. 

2.  How do you balance your work with family time?

If you ask my husband, sometimes I don't feel like I balance it very well!  :)  I am a stay at home mom to three children, ages 4, 6, and 9.  We were transferred to Phoenix two years ago with my husband's job.  At that time, I started to stay at home full time because he travels heavily.  I got so caught up in trying to be a good mom and wife and started to feel like I was losing a part of me.  In January, I decided that I needed to make time for myself and started to write Worlds Apart.  I would write from nine to midnight every night after I got the kids to bed and cleaned up the house.  I would also take my laptop and write when I was at my children's sport practices.  Any time I had a few extra minutes, I would write.  My characters consumed me and I needed to get my story that had been stuck in my head for three years down on paper.  I felt guilty at first for taking the time to write and worried that my writing would take away time from my family, but found as my story was coming to life that I too felt fulfilled.  My husband and children have been so supportive of my writing and I never regret the decision that I made that day to start writing Worlds Apart. 

3.  Now that you have been through it once, what advice do you offer
for authors interested in self-publishing?

I would tell other authors to go for it and follow their dreams.  I have had a really positive experience with self-publishing and would encourage others to explore that option.  I wanted to get my novel out in the public and this has been an exciting journey so far.  Self-publishing certainly has its ups and downs.  I have been solely in charge of my own marketing of the book.  I have poured over every website and information I could get my hands on.  This path has been challenging, but is very fulfilling.  I would suggest three things to think about before I would self-publish again.  First, I did try and go the traditional publishing route and sought out to find a literary agent.  The process of writing a query letter to agents was a learning experience in itself.  I would still like to be published traditionally.  I feel as though I exhausted this publishing route before I decided to self-publish.  Secondly, I came up with a marketing plan on how I would get my book in the public since I would be responsible for its ultimate success or failure.  Thirdly, I researched the social networks and writer's groups online like WAE Network, Facebook, and Goodreads.  I reached out and tried to get myself established among them.  I am currently still working on this last one!  :)

4.  As a former elementary teacher, do you have any favorite books you
recommend for parents trying to encourage their kids to read?

I taught 4th grade so we read chapter books like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Bunnicula, and Where the Red Fern Grows.  I loved Where the Red Fern Grows and even named our first dog after Little Ann.  By the time that my students got to my class, they already knew how to read, but some still didn't have the love of reading instilled in them.  I would encourage parents to continue to read aloud to their children nightly even in the upper grades.  My oldest son and I read chapter books together nightly, each taking turns to read aloud.  He and I look forward to that quiet time where we can get lost together in a book and discuss what we think is going to happen.  Some parents think that their children are too old to enjoy reading with their parents, but I think they would be surprised at how much both the child and parent enjoy reading together and bonding over a good book.

5. What can we expect from the next installment of the Silver Oaks Series?  

Spoiler alert!!  Don't read this if you haven't read Worlds Apart.  I have already started writing the second book, Hiding in Plain Sight.  The prologue starts about twenty years in the future where we find Graham in a situation involving Pip and his half sister, Palmer.  The experience he has in the run down shack trying to save the important women in his life from a man who relentlessly threatens their safety, pushes Graham to evaluate how his actions have molded him.  While Worlds Apart is Piper and Pip's story, Hiding in Plain Sight is primarily about Graham and how he struggles with his identity after losing his mother and taking a man's life.  The first chapter then goes back and begins exactly where Worlds Apart ends with Graham "jumping" to Pip's world.  The second book of the series is darker and has some shocking twists that the readers won't see coming.  I believe in pushing the boundaries just enough to hopefully make the reader put down the book and still be thinking about certain scenes a few days later.  Hiding in Plain Sight will make you question whether or not that really just happened, but will make you read on because you will want to find out where Graham is hiding and exactly whom he is hiding from.

Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

Don't make Carrie slap you.
Read it!
As you all know, Ray Bradbury passed away in early June of this year.  When that happened, Carrie and I were discussing some of his work (Carrie has read more than I have and I'm pretty sure she's a card-carrying member of his fan club) and I mentioned that I had yet to read this particular book.  Carrie eye-slapped me for this gross oversight and we found ourselves at the poor excuse for a book store in my previous location's metro area to rectify the situation.  If you've read any of my other reviews, then you've likely read a review of something Stephen King authored, and Carrie informed me that Something Wicked This Way Comes would appeal to the dark and mysterious genre I enjoy.  She was right.

The carnival rolls into town a week before Halloween in the middle of the night.  All manner of things seem not quite right, but not completely wrong; the steam engine seems to be a relic, there was no advanced advertising, the music from the carousel calliope seems to be running backwards, smells waft through the air downtown several miles from the carnival itself, and all of that happens before the carnival is open for business.  But two boys know.  Will Halloway and Jim Nightshade bore witness to the carnival's entrance to town, not just because they saw it with their own eyes but because they sensed it to a certain degree.  Will and Jim live next door to one another and best friends the way only twelve year old boys know how to be best friends.  They are inseparable.  They can communicate without words.  They know their way around town in the dark as well as they know the way in full daylight.  They keep no secrets from one another and their pockets are full of the world's forgotten treasures.  As they grow up they are becoming more aware that they might not be the same, and then the carnival comes to town and that becomes more evident than ever.

Jim and Will go to enjoy the carnival and end up discovering more than they want to know.  Some of the attractions are too real.  There's a maze of mirrors with true reflections.....of the days past or the days ahead.  There is, of course, the sideshow tent with its myriad traveling population: The Skeleton, The Dwarf (who looks all too familiar), The Dust Witch blind by all-seeing, and The Illustrated Man whose tattoos are much too real to be the product of needles and ink.  But most disturbing of all is the after hours ride the boys see one of the owners take on the carousel.  As the ride spins backwards, so do the years from the man riding it and he leaps off the carousel as twelve year old boy.  The boys realize that one of their teachers is being played by the new twelve year old and go after him.  A chase ensues and the boy ends up back on the carousel, this time to replace the years he took away and then deal with Jim and Will as an adult, but the boys break the carousel's control panel.  The co-owner ends up spinning and spinning on the magic carousel and ends up ancient and unable to move.  Now the Jim and Will know too much and are enemies of the carnival.  But who can help them with such a fantastic chain of events?

Don't worry, the boys find a friend and hero in Will's father.  They all learn many things about themselves and how the world of the "autumn people" works.  Most importantly they learn that life is only worth the living they do.  Though the story is (wonderfully) frightful, sometimes I found myself admiring the prose more than the plot.  Mr. Bradbury had an unparalleled way with words.  I would re-read passages just to hear the words in my head one more time.  And this was his way of describing the dark actions taking place, not pastoral scenery or love scenes.  Basically, it was a great story told greatly.  That's probably why it's a classic.  That's definitely why I should have read this sooner.  And you?  Have you read this?  Are you a Bradbury fan?

That Thing Called Love by Susan Andersen

Do me a favor?  Pretend I posted this LAST Monday.
Blogging Jedi mind trick:
this post is not uploading
on the day you think it is

Can you do that for me?


It turns out that I've read 20+ of Susan Andersen's books.  I guess that makes me a fan.  I wish I could say that I was a bigger fan of the "hero" in That Thing Called Love because I really liked the setting, the heroine, her best friend, the teen characters, and the hero's brother.  But, Jake, the main male character is a little too whiny and angst-y for me to really connect to him.

I'm probably getting ahead of myself.

The book opens where Jenny (our heroine) is helping Austin (one of the teen characters) cope with the mourners after his grandfather's funeral.  Jenny and Austin aren't related, but they act like siblings. Austin's grandparents gave Jenny a job and a surrogate family years ago when her own family fell apart, and she's watched Austin grow up as his maternal grandparents have raised him.  Now that both grandparents have passed, Jenny will be Austin's guardian until the estate attorney can determine if Austin's wayward father will show up.

Jake does make an appearance, and he's determined to make up for the disappearing act he's pulled for the first 13 years of Austin's life.  And, of course (this is a romance, after all), he's attracted to the woman he needs to help ease his transition into Austin's life.

Jake is hot.  Jake is talented.  Jake loves his son.
The first of a new series
from Susan Andersen.
I have high hopes
for the second one.

I still don't like Jake.

He's blind to his own self-absorption, and he's overly focused on what happened when he was in junior high.  Jenny, on the other hand, has been dealt a similarly crappy hand, but she's worked to build her life.  She has friends.  She's created her own family.  She works hard.  She's happy.

Jake doesn't deserve her, and I was frustrated by her "I fell in the love with the potential of him" behavior.

I'm getting grumpy in my old age--if you haven't noticed.

Now, That Thing Called Love is the epitome of a redemption story.  The "hero" isn't much of a hero when the story opens, but he changes.  He does, literally, save the girl in the end.  The HEA (happily ever after) does happen, and if you like stories where love saves the damaged character, you'll probably like this book.  After all, I did love the setting, the heroine, her best friend, the teen characters, and the hero's brother.

This is the first of series, and I'm looking forward to Max's (Jake's half-brother) story.  He's wound pretty tight, but he doesn't whine.  Also, if you're looking for a good contemporary romance, I'd recommend Andersen's Bending the Rules, because that one includes a hero I can really get behind!

Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews

I am SO sorry.

I have neglected you.

First, I missed a post last week.  (So, yes, I'll post a second one today. I owe you.)  Alas, that's the least of my transgressions.

I could have SWORN I reviewed a Kate Daniels book.  Really, I was sure of it.  I was so sure of it that  I went into the archives to search for the review so I could link to it in this one.

AND . . .

I came up empty-handed.

Yes, there's this review of a novella in an anthology.  That is wildly insufficient.  The Kate Daniels books are some of my favorite on the planet right now.  I KNOW I've recommended the series to some of my urban fantasy reading pals.  (Hi, Patricia!)  I was feeling a bit guilty about reviewing a book related to a series I had already fawned over.  

ONLY, I haven't.

And, technically, this review still doesn't get it done.
A good book,
even when Andrea has a day
to rival Alexander's
bad day of all days.

See, today's review is about Gunmetal Magic, a book set in the world on Kate Daniels, by Ilona Andrews, but not actually about Kate.

Seriously, I've failed you again.

Luckily, I'm bringing you a REALLY good book, so hopefully you'll love me anyway.

Gunmetal Magic is Andrea's story. She is Kate's best friend and business partner.  While Kate is busy saving the life of an innocent child, Andrea has her hands busy figuring out who (or what) killed four members of the Atlanta Pack.  This world of Kate's (and, therefore, Andrea's) is full of magic that takes down technology in waves and leaves the world without.  There are vampires, and shifters, witches, and plain ol' humans all trying to live through the waves.  It's a bit of a struggle on a day-to-day basis because the magic will topple buildings and kill a car.  Really nice cars in Kate's world have both combustion engines that run on gasoline (technology) and enchanted engines that run on water (magic).  Andrea is faced with something beyond that day-to-day struggle because a couple of Egyptian gods are rearing their animalistic (snake and jackal) heads.  To add insult to injury, Andrea must face up to her ex, Rafael, and make a decision about joining the Atlanta pack.  That's quite more than just an honest day's work.

Gunmetal Magic, like all the Kate Daniel's books, is full of action, tight storytelling, and compelling wonder.  The friendship between Andrea and Kate is a strong, just like the women involved.  There are dashes of humor and smoldering moments.  It's a really great urban fantasy.  I've read all Kate Daniels' stories, so I know exactly why Rafe is Andrea's ex, but I believe the back story is well enough explained that if you wanted to jump into the series here, you could.

And the coolest thing? There is a Kate Daniels' novella, Magic Gifts, in Gunmetal Magic.

So, please, forgive me for my transgressions, because I bring you (almost) two GREAT books in one. Pin It

Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner

See what I mean?
I know, I know.  Never judge a book by it's cover.  But I couldn't help it.  It was so "Jodi Picoult-ish" that I couldn't help myself.  (Don't tell my fellow book club members, but I am a closet Picoult fan).  Plus, I was doing a double shift at the school book fair and had already read the first few chapters. I had to buy it.  (It's for the kids, ya know).

I had prepared myself for heart-wrenching drama, sadness and extreme emotion, but I really didn't need to.  In Fly Away Home, Sylvie Woodruff is a devoted senator's wife who has successfully raised two daughters.  She plays the part dutifully for over 20 years by helping with speeches, making social appearances and putting her own career on the back burner.  All of that falls apart when the media gets wind of her husband's affair with a 20-something staffer.  Couple that with her daughter Diana (a well-respected ER surgeon) admitting to cheating on HER husband and her other daughter Lizzie fresh out of yet another stint in rehab and the Woodruff women are a hot mess.  Eventually, they migrate to Connecticut and the summer home where they used to spend quality time together.  The three women spend several months reconnecting, reevaluating and reorganizing their lives.  They help each other forgive and set new priorities, some of which are different than ones they had in the past.

Meh.  It was sad.  I can do sad, but sad needs to have a purpose.  You know, like a terminal illness or a suicide.  This was just boring sad.  Sad because these three women made a series of bad decisions and neither one of them had the guts to tell the other one to "get out of your loveless marriage" or "put down that joint" or "quit hiding in your work and be engaged with your family."  There was no purpose to this sad other than to highlight some bad choices and three somewhat boring characters. 

Speaking of characters, I wish Weiner would have focused more on the grandmother and the rehab-rebound boyfriend.  The grandmother made me want to stand up and cheer especially when she gave her daughter regular bouts of unsolicited advice.  Go grandma!  As for the boyfriend, he was sweet.  He accepted Lizzie for who she was and didn't run when she ended up getting pregnant by him and then trying to push him away.  He was the only stand-up guy in the novel and it was a shame he was only written in at the halfway-ish point.

Since book covers seem to be so misleading (at least to me) I think I will stick to downloading ebooks.  They don't really qualify as having covers, do they?  Either that or I let Sarah and Carrie (my fellow TFA bloggers) pick out books for me to read.  On second thought,  I'll stick to ebooks.   It will be safer for everyone that way.
