Chewing the Pages with Charley

A Silver Lake library Book Review

Hello all! I am Charley, a gorgeous and sleek canine who lives with my humans who love to read! I was curious and decided to dig into the books my family checks out from the Library and now I can’t sink my teeth into enough of them!

It’s spring and I love the mud! But my family hates the mess! Speaking of mess, I am reading a mess of a book called Alienated by Melissa Landers. Alienated

The book starts out telling about an over achiever, Cara, who is pushed into volunteering her home to an exchange student program, by her principle. The problem is the exchange student is an alien from the planet L’eihr. Cara soon loves the idea because the deal comes with a fully paid college scholarship! But when Aelyx from the planet L’eihr comes to stay he and Cara send planet Earth into an uproar.

The book has a sweet love story that is well written and the plot is fun to follow but I really felt like there were several things left hanging in the story. I had a hard time liking most of the characters and the fact that Aelyx had a pet monkey alien and not a canine alien really made me growl!

I was not a happy puppy with this book. I’m giving it 3 bones.

I am now trying to find the time between rooting in the mud and chewing bones to finish my next book

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West. 15283043

The distance that Kasie West is refering to is the gap between the rich and the poor. Cayman, the main character, lives with her mother in a very small apartment above their doll store. She is very loyal to her mother almost to the point of giving up her future for her until she meets…? I’m not telling you.

This book is quirky and funny! I love all the characters and so far I don’t want the story to end! I am sure I will be giving this book a 5 out of 5 bones rating.
