24 Hours Crochet Hacks: 25 Fast and Easy Crochet Hat Patterns for Beginners24 Hours Crochet Hacks: 25 Fast and Easy Crochet Hat Patterns for Beginners by Emily Rohan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Okay, thing is, I didn’t read every word. Thing is, I just leafed through it to see if it had enough patterns to be worth keeping on my Kindle Fire to give me my next hat project.

I don’t know why it is titled with the word Hacks. Simple terms for newer pattern readers maybe, but you wouldn’t be a newbie to make the patterns in this book. You would already know a lot about crocheting. If not there are plenty of YouTubes out there to guide you. I know, I watch YouTubes for everything I want to learn. crocheting, knitting, loom knitting, etc.

But this book compiled a good bunch of hats. Since I belong to a group of wonderful people that are making hats for charity, I am always looking for new patterns and a way to keep the patterns all in one place. I saw several hats in the book I look forward to trying them soon. If they don’t work out, I will come back here and change my review to fewer stars. If I find the patterns to be excellent I will raise the rating.

Where the Carnies AreWhere the Carnies Are by Kayla Curry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book came to me as part of a giveaway from another author, Becca Campbell. Thank you!

Different. That is my favorite type of fantasy. It can’t be like all the others. This one fills the bill. The best part is that it is a book about a young woman who isn’t a teen, who grows to be a very strong person very quickly. Wow, I just had to delete a bunch of sentences that became big spoilers. Needless to say, this story is about Olive who stumbles into a life of carnies. But this isn’t Water for Elephants. This is more … well, see there? I can’t compare it to anything else I’ve read.

I would have loved to have read this as a young adult or even new adult. There are no gratuitous sex scenes. There is a lot of adventure and growing characters. It is a fast read and I couldn’t pull away. I wanted to see what happens next.

I think there may be a sequel, I hope so. I like the world and the characters Kayla Curry invented. But no cliffhanger here. Nice ending, just sad to see the story end.
