Anywho, I will be reviewing some great books soon! I have a lot of catching up to do!
Stay tuned!
Also, if you have any book review requests or reviews themselves you'd like to submit, feel free to email me at thaliasbookblog@yahoo.com.

Motorcycles, Sushi, and One Strange Book by Nancy Rue

Normal? While family dinners and vacations to touristy destinations are ordinary events for her “normal” friends, fifteen-year-old Jessie Hatcher’s normal life means dealing with her ADHD and her mother’s bipolar disorder. So why is Jessie shocked when the unexpected happens? Now her “normal” includes living in Florida with the father she always thought was dead and learning the secrets of sushi from a man who teaches by tormenting her. Life isn’t any saner with her dad, but a cute guy and a mysterious book might just be the crazy Jessie needs.  (www.amazon.com)


What a hilarious book!  I don't think I've ever laughed out loud so many times while reading.  Rue does an incredible job of weaving the difficult subjects with light-hearted situations.  Although the subject matter might suggest older readers, this book would be a perfect way to teach younger children about the power of God in our everyday lives, mental illnesses, and where to draw the line between obeying God and obeying parents.  Reading this with/to younger kids would be a great idea.
If you like any of the following:
a) motorcycles
b) sushi
c) books
you must check this book out!
Happy reading!
