Luna the Howling Husky Finds Her HowlLuna the Howling Husky Finds Her Howl by Samantha Shannon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Luna the husky is very unique. Unlike other huskies, Luna cannot howl at the moon when she wants to. Because of that, her husky siblings bully her and treat her poorly. They all get adopted quickly but Luna is left behind. She meets a cat who is also unique. Together, they treat each other with kindness and find a furever home!

I love the illustrations in this story! They are very vibrant and engaging. The story is also very well done. Share this one with youngsters of all ages!

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus


Lessons in ChemistryLessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read this book on the recommendation of my sister. All I can say is, "WOW!"

Based in the 1960's, Elizabeth Zott is a research scientist who is setting out to prove that women shouldn't tolerate hiding behind the men that seem to run the world. She's determined to make a name for HERSELF and not let anyone else take credit for it.

When she falls in love with world renowned scientist Calvin Evans, she lets him know right away that she's not interested in marriage. A tragic accident leaves Elizabeth with a gift she never asked for and doesn't quite know what to do with.

Faced with many life decisions and still trying to pave her own way, Elizabeth breaks down barriers in some unconventional ways, even going against herself at times.

Supper may be at six but the real fun is on at Six-Thirty!! :)

Santa Gnome Wreath (It Lights Up!)

The hottest item off my hook is this adorable Santa Gnome Wreath! It's an 8 inch wreath base and comes with fairy lights. The lights have three different settings on them. 

This was a lot of fun to make, even though I had to wait awhile on some of the supplies to finish it up! Just in time for Christmas!! 

I do take custom orders! Visit FaithfulgirlCreation to chat about your next order!

The Christmas Carousel (The Brass Ring Series Book 2) by K. L. Small


The Christmas Carousel (The Brass Ring Series, Book 2)The Christmas Carousel by K.L. Small
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is such a sweet series that young readers can enjoy reading independently or having it read to them. Rusty's grandpa gave him a brass ring awhile back that takes them on magical adventures when it is used while riding the carousel. This time, the carousel is the Christmas carousel in the mall as the one in the park is closed for the season. Rusty has his heart set on a specific gift for Grandpa but it's a bit out of his price range. It's during his carousel adventures that Rusty learns the best gift to give Grandpa.

This book does address elderly aging and Alzheimer's. It would be a good way to introduce a young mind to this issue should it be something they should be exposed to.

This is the second book in a series and could be read as a standalone. However, you will miss out on a lot of adventures from the previous story, along with a much more detailed background.

I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading about the Haunted Carousel coming in 2024!!
