Skylark (Sarah, Plain and Tall #2)Skylark by Patricia MacLachlan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is my second read of this little book. It seems I read it in 2007. (See Bookcrossing.com BCID 701-5283303) But since it was sitting here where I am house sitting, I thought I’d read it again.

I have to admit to relating to this book more now than I did back then. With my life about to change like Sarah’s, moving to a new area, um, that is feeling the results of this draught. But the sky is the main calling as it was for Sarah and her family.

It’s a quiet, sweet, poetic book that might make a good read at bedtime for adults and children to share.

Bye Bye Bloodsucker (Wicked Good Witches #3)Bye Bye Bloodsucker by Starla Silver
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well, this is the last of the series that was/is free. The rest will have to wait until my finances settle after our move. Though it hasn’t been my favorite series, I am wanting to know what happens next.

I have to admit that I like the element of the youngest, the daughter, even though a good witch, has some mental problems to overcome. It isn’t the usual anger issues, rather she has depression and anxiety that is of agoraphobia nature. Bad for someone that needs to be helpful to the people of the island and her brothers. Being the youngest she is watched out for by her older brothers and a vampire who is a family friend from generations ago. The bad news is she seems to be falling in love with him and another guy on the island. Not your usual triad issues. Yay!

A new element in this story is the giant leeches. Yuck! And there are mermaids! So this may be my favorite so far. Add to these new issues, the brothers are still working with their separate abilities of death-speaking and werewolf changing. So there are a lot of story-lines to follow. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
