It’s just about October, which means your streaming services are going to be packed full of horror, but for the avid crime watcher there’s still quite a bit to look forward to, as long as you don’t mind a tinge of fright in your weekly viewing, or else you’re a fan of British mystery in…The Best New Crime Shows Coming in October — CrimeReads
by Andrew Katz; Juliana Léveillé-Trudel
Julia and her friends are camping out. Now it is time for Julia to read a bedtime story following each friend’s special direction but UH-OH, the book is not in her knapsack. What follows is an adventure with a bear on a raft and a trip to the Starlit Library. Such fun.
This title would make a delightful bedtime story. It is enticingly illustrated and has just the perfect amount of adventure for a story that is read right before going to sleep.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Chouette Publishing for this title. All opinions are my own.

New Books to Make Your Heart Race
It is no secret that I adore samplers. They are free and so helpful in making decisions about what to read next. In this latest one from Minotaur, there are excerpts from upcoming books by Peter Blauner; Stacy Willingham; Anastasia Hastings; Juan Gómez-Jurado; Alex Finlay; Thomas Mullen. There are definitely books that I want to read here.
One nice feature of this title is that readers can click to receive email updates on each of these authors. Great, never miss a book again! I also enjoyed reading the info on the authors; it is always fun to have a sense of who is writing what I want to read.
Many thanks to NetGalley and St. Martins Press-Minotaur for this title. All opinions are my own.

by Pema Chodron
Well, this book certainly impacted me and made me rather contemplative. It is the first time I have read something by Pema Chodron but I will surely look for some of her other titles.
The title of this book indicates that it will be a deep read and indeed it is. It is based upon the Tibetan Bardo texts. The author guides readers in exploring and accepting the flow of changes that constantly occur in life. It is about a cycle of beginnings, endings, beginnings…really all of life.
I highly recommend this book. It has helped me to worry a bit less and live a bit more.
