The Sunday Post Meme (192)


Hey everybody! I am participating in a book meme called the Sunday Post which is being hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer! The goal of this meme is to share news you have  on various books and things you’ve read or received and also talk about what is coming up for your blog! Book hauls can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books and you can share these finds with other book bloggers!

Hey everyone! I can't believe that February is nearly here!  That means that my birthday is around the corner!  My birthday is in February and me and my family were thinking about going to Outback Steakhouse to celebrate, although we have to work around the virus, so we are probably going to eat at home, which is fine with me since I enjoy eating at home!

One Word: SURPRISED!!!


* So, Netflix had this new international film that came out, so I decided to check it out and I really enjoyed this movie!  It was such an intense film about a cop trying to transport a group of prisoners when his truck ends up getting attacked and he has to find a way to survive the cold weather, while dealing the prisoners who want to kill him!  It's definitely worth the watch if you love prison thrillers!


* Loved this trailer!  I'm so pumped to see Godzilla and King Kong duking it out on the big screen!  Can't wait to see who will win this battle!



Has your reading year been going well so far?

*So, here are some good things that happened to me recently!

* Just waiting and anticipating my birthday!  It's always fun whenever my birthday comes up because that means that I get to do exciting things on my birthday, like go out to eat and get awesome gifts!

* Getting into my new projects.  Lately, I've been using YouTube a lot and I've been making so many necessary changes to my account and it's been an amazing journey for me to just change up my channel to fit how I would like it!

Stacking the Shelves #86: January 30, 2021

Stacking The Shelves is a book meme created by Tynga's Reviews and Reading Reality and it is about sharing books that you are adding to your shelves, whether it's physical or virtual.  This means including books that you bought from the store or online, books you borrowed from friends or from the library, books you've reviewed, gifts and ebooks!

Hey everyone!  HAPPY LATE NEW YEAR EVERYBODY (yes, it's late because it's already the end of January)!  Anyway, the year has started off a bit...rocky (the capitol riot being the main rocky thing that happened).  Despite that though, I think I'm finally getting back into reading again.  For all of 2020, I haven't really read any books since so many terrible things were going on in 2020 that they distracted from reading.  But, I was able to get out my first review for the year and that makes me happy!  Now, I just need to start reading again!

I would like to thank Squeedeal for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Wow!  It’s been a while since I last did a book review, hasn’t it?  Anyway, I just recently received an ARC of this latest children’s book called “Far Beyond the Sun” by Dolev Zaharony along with artwork by Marian Naseif and I have to say that this was quite a cute book to read if you are into science!

The story starts off with a young boy named Brian who believed that he was the highest boy in the world.  But then his friend Kelly tells him that he wasn’t as high as the sun.  When Brian finds out that he isn’t as high as the sun, he decided to look through his books and see how he can become higher than the sun.  He finds some of the highest locations on Earth, which includes the Pyramids in Giza and Mount Everest.  So, Brian decided that he must climb the tallest mountains just to reach the sun.

Can Brian reach the sun?

Read this book to find out!

Dolev Zaharony has done a great job at writing this book as it shows that he has done some research on the different locations mentioned in this book, including describing how high these locations are, such as Mount Everest.  I really liked the fact that we get to learn about the various locations in this story, especially about Mount Everest and the Pyramids in Giza because I always wanted to travel around the world and it’s great that we get to learn about these famous places.  I also liked the fact that Brian is shown as a young boy who wants to be as high as the sun, which I found to be a cute motive.  Marian Naseif’s artwork is adorable to look at as all of the characters’ expressions in this book are usually happy and excited which makes me believe the characters’ excitement at exploring this interesting topic.

Even though I like the fact that this story explored the various tall places around the world, I felt that there wasn’t a lot of meat to the story.  While I understand that this is a children’s book, I wish that maybe they could introduce more locations in the book besides Mount Everest to help children see all of the tallest locations on Earth.

Overall, “Far Beyond the Sun” is a cute read for kids who enjoy reading about the tallest places on Earth.  I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since the distance numbers of the locations might be too complicated for smaller children.
