April A to Z Blogging Challenge Day 18...Today's Blog Brought to You by the Letter "R"

In a previous post, I talked about writing reviews for my favorite television show Once Upon a Time on my friend's Disney blog.  On her other blog, Divas Who Save, I will be writing other reviews and tips in the coming days (as she just started this blog up after splitting the content off of her other blog).  Currently, I am working on reviewing two books, both either made into a movie or in the works to be a movie.  Alone Yet Not Alone is for ages eight and up and is a true historical story.  It's a fairly short book, at 160 pages and includes full color pictures from the movie.  My 11-year-old daughter, who is an avid reader, read it in an afternoon.  Now it's my turn to read it and collaborate with her to write the review!

The second book is called Just 18 Summers.  It is a novelization of a screenplay.  I was eager to read this book because the concept is something that I have been grappling with lately, as a mom.  We only have so much time with our kids.  You blink and they are grown.  We have to be intentional and purposeful in teaching them and making memories that will last.  The book is funny and sad and shows exaggerated and extreme versions of ourselves, with readers likely finding one of the parent characters to relate to.  I am currently writing the review to be posted on my friends blog as soon as I am done.  I recommend reading this book for any parent and can't wait to share my full review of the book!  Be on the lookout for the movie coming out.  They also have a website for this project with tips and articles ranging from recipes to parenting tips.  Look for my review to be posted around Mother's Day.
