Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...

QUICK NOTE...Update: 1/2/19

The blog is slowly coming back on line. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. So, reading and blogging (as much as I adore it) have to take a back burner. I've finally reached a stage in all this chaos that I feel that I can try to take a few baby steps back into the blogging world. A post here, a post there, and who knows. Hope you stay along for the ride!

RHCB BLOG TOUR: Fairy Mom and Me by Sophie Kinsella

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're joining Random House Children's Books for a magic filled blog tour starring the latest release from author Sophie Kinsella.  For the teen and adult readers out there, you probably already know the name (Shopaholic, anyone?), but this time around, she's bringing her writing talents to the kiddos (and the kiddos at heart!) with a magic infused story that takes a little of this and a little of that to create a recipe for success (much like the cupcakes she...oh, wait...I can't tell you that!).  Ready or not, here comes today's blog tour guest and book of choice...

About the book...
Fans of Sophie Kinsella’s sparkling humor will love her first ever illustrated series for young readers about the charming adventures of a mother-daughter fairy duo!
Ella Brook can’t wait to grow up, because one day she will become a fairy and have her own sparkly wings and a teacher on Fairy Tube, just like her mom! Until then, Ella has to learn by watching her mom in action.

But sometimes spells go wrong, and Ella’s mom can never seem to remember the right magic codes on her Computawand. A lot of the time, it’s up to Ella to come to the rescue. Does she have what it takes to be a fairy one day? Or will there be more glitches than glitter?

A darling collection of "day-in-the-life-of" mishaps and madcap adventures for the kiddos and beyond!  It goes a long way in dispelling the myth that magic can fix everything, but a long way in proving that the REAL magic is in each and every one of us.

This magic filled tale shows us what life may be like if fairy magic ran in the family. I mean, can you imagine if you had the choice of living an every day sort of life, or the chance to follow in mom's footsteps and become a fairy at large?  Awesome sauce!  You'd think things would be a breeze, problems easily solved, troubles overcome with a flick of your Computawand (yes, even THEY'VE upgraded...except when it goes wrong *-*), and life in general would be a piece of cake. Um, yeah...about that. Let's just say that practice makes perfect doesn't just apply to us average Joe's and Jane's...BUT with a little help from family, a considerable dose of understanding, and the ability to laugh at one's self, pretty much any obstacle can be knocked down to size.

Hmm, live an every day sort of life, or the chance to follow in mom's footsteps and become a fairy at large? There really is no question. After all how many little girls (and some of us not quite so little any more) would pass on the opportunity of living life as a fairy?
