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 bookclub update

Hello, my bucket list friends! I know it may seem like it but I have not forgotten about the bookclub. I have been slowly making my way through February’s book. I hope to finish it this weekend. I thought I would use this post to choose March’s book club pick. Since March is almost over I decided to go with a book that would be easy to read quickly. I enjoy the Candy Fairies book series. I have been able to find more candy fairy books at thrift stores. The book I’ll be reading this month is the Chocolate Rose by Helen Perelman. Happy reading everyone!

Light heart book club January 2021 book discussion

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’m very excited about this month’s book discussion for two reasons one because this post is on time and the other reason being I really loved this book! This month’s book was Amazing Acrobats by Meredith Costain and illustrated by Danielle McDonald. 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 had so many favorite parts in this book but one that stands out to me was when Olivia found out about a free circus skills workshop. I was happy that she had found a better place to practice her circus skills other than her back yard and I’m pretty sure her mom was too after what happened to her vegetable garden!

My least favorite part of the book – It was hard seeing Olivia’s friend Matilda struggle with her fear of hanging upside-down but I was so happy for her when she overcame that fear.

Activity – In the beginning of the book Oliva begans practicing her acrobatics on the playground at her school. She practiced on the monkey bars a lot.When I crossed off go to three playgrounds in one day off my bucket list I made sure to visit the monkey bars. However I’m not near as skilled as Olivia is !

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
