Jeanette - Special Orders in Manchester

After a long day of cruisn’ through the various adventures in life (Indiana Jones has nuttin’ on me), nothing hits the spot like…chocolate. But once you say chocolate that’s all you need say. So these pages are dedicated to a few of my other passions: alligator wrestling, bull riding, reading books (big books, little books, picture books, no pictures books, even little black books), listening to music (from A to Z and back again) and a variety of other things. So take a minute to browse some of my faves and I hope they become some of yours.

Bound by Claire Schwartz - Book Review

Published: Button Poetry - January 16th, 2018

Schwartz portrays sexuality, love, life, religion and politics in beautiful language to the eye and minds ear. Bound is not a book that you can sit and read in one sitting. Or if you do, you should go back for multiple readings. She says a lot in short, sometimes very unique poems. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

It has been said that Francisco has “defined poetry for a generation of new readers.” And he does have a modern take with his poetry about love, race, living and even his depression. He is easy to read but packs a punch with his great tidbits of relatable poems. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Rachel Kolar has taken the nursery rhymes we grew up with and has given them some bite. Unlike Miss Muffet, the witch eats that cheeky spider who sat down beside her. We will be howling with werewolves called Willie and Mary will be bringing a ghost to school instead of a silly old sheep. Thirteen spooky rhyming tales will get your blood pumping and your sides splitting with laughter. Mother Ghost is perfect for getting in the Halloween spirit. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

$17.99
ISBN: 9780545935142
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Orchard Books - August 30th, 2016

Pilkey stepped away from his humorous stories and gone a spiritual route. Poetic look at the story of gargoyles and how the angels are there for not only them but for all of us who seem forgotten. Could be a lovely sympathy gift. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
