Light Heart book club discussion Feb. 2021

Hello, my bucket list friends! I finally finished February book club book. Our book was Kira Down Under by Erin Teagan. This the first book for the American Girl of the year for 2021. I can’t wait to tell you about about the book. As always there is just one more thing. The following post contains major plot points ( Spoilers ) for the book . If you want to read the book and haven’t yet, I suggest you wait to read this post until you have finished the book. Now, let’s get into our discussion!

My favorite part of the book – I loved reading about the start of Kira’s Australian adventure! She was so excited to meet the animals at the wildlife rescue. As someone who loves animals I can only imagine how exciting that would be. I also loved that Kira made a friend that loved animals as much as she did.

My least favorite part of the book was when Kira’s aunt had to go to the hospital. That must have been so scary for Kira to watch.

Overall view of the book – I enjoyed reading this book especially because I love animals. I liked how most of the story was set at an animal rescue. I would recommend this book especially for people who love animals.

For this books activity. I suggest you check out a wildlife rescue center if there’s one close to you. Pretty recently I visited the one near me when I found an injured rat.

Thanks for reading!

Light Heart book club discussion November 2020

Hello, my bucket list friends ! In November our book club went back to the 80s. This month’s book was Courtney changes the game by – Kellen Hertz. I’m excited to get into our discussion and activity for this book but as always there is just one more thing. The following post contains major plot points ( Spoilers ) for the book . If you want to read the book and haven’t yet, I suggest you wait to read this post until you have finished the book. Now, let’s get into our discussion!

My favorite part of the book – I loved the part of the book when Courtney went with her mom and step sister to the salon. I was excited for her when she got her ears pierced. I also liked the part of the book where County appeared with her mom on a local talk show.

Activity – For this month’s book I decided to just do one activity. In the book Courtney decides to design a video game for a class project. I enjoyed reading about Courtney’s game idea. I thought it would be fun to come up with my own video game idea. If I were to make a video game I would make a scavenger hunt game. The main character In my game is Lara Finder. One day Lara finds a scavenger hunt list in the park. Once she completes that list she begins to find even more lists. Her cat soda joins her on her adventures. The Last scavenger hunt brings her to the person who has been making all the lists for her.

Before I end This post I want to say really loved this book and I cant wait to read Courtney’s next book. Also you may have noticed that I did not include the thing I liked the least about the book. I thought it was best to keep this post light and fun. Happy reading. Rock On – Christina Epperly

Light Heart book club October 2020 discussion.

Hello, my bucket list friends ! It’s time  for our October 2020 book club discussion. I’m excited to discuss this  book with all of you. This month’s book is Blaire cooks up a plan by Jennifer Castle. This was a fun book to read and I can’t wait to discuss it with all of you but as always just one more thing before we dive into our discussion. The following post contains major plot points ( Spoilers ) for the book . If you want to read the book and haven’t yet, I suggest you wait to read this post until you have finished the book. Now, let’s dive into our discussion!

My favorite part of the book – This book was full of great moments. Out of all the moments one really stands out. I absolutely love the part where Blair and her best friend Thea were exploring the attic of the house that was being renovated for one of their favorite shows.When they got to the attic their imagination started running wild with great design ideas. Their idea for an indoor playground in the attic became a reality. That was a fun part to read !

My least favorite part of the book – It was so sad when Blair had set aside a jar of sauce for Abby and it got given to someone else. Things did eventually work out but that was such a sad moment

Overall opinion of the book – I enjoyed reading this book. It’s a fun read and it has a big focus on helping others. I recommend this book for sure !

Activities

I loved how Blair designed the indoor playground so I thought it would be fun to design my own fun space. I decided to draw my dream reading room complete with a cozy reading area and a large plush bear! What dream room would you design ?

Blair lives on a farm where lots of food is grown. What kind of fruit or vegetables would you grow at your house? I have oranges and Lemons growing on my deck. For this activity I took pictures of the food growing at my house. If you don’t have any fruits or vegetables growing around your house, draw a picture of what food you would what to grow.

Thanks for reading ! Rock On – Christina Epperly
