Hey bookworms! I have some pretty cool news for you! As many of you know, I have started making Youtube videos to talk about books. I am one with the “booktube” ways now…just kidding, I still have a lot to learn in terms of filming and editing. But along the way, I have made some really cool fellow booktuber friends!
One of these such friends is Savy. She is an author and booktuber based in Chicago and she talks about tips on writing, books, and other social issues. I will link her Youtube channel so you can go check her out!
She has a company that she runs called Furever Home Friends. They sell stuffed animals that are super adorable along with other merchandise such as T-shirts, posters, and books. All of these stuffed animals are based on real animals and they are looking to build their collection of stuffed animals they can offer.
They recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the production of these new additions to the Furever Home Friends family. Plus, they give 10% of all proceeds made to Chicago Animal shelters so you would be helping out animals in need at the same time as supporting a good, wholesome business.
I know it would mean the world to Savy if you could check out the campaign! She has worked very hard to make this small business a reality. Feel free to share the campaign as a way of support if you can’t pledge anything. That way more people will see and learn about this wonderful business that helps kids learn about social issues through children’s stories involving lovable animals. And the fact that some of this money helps those sheltered animals, in turn, makes it even better!
I hope everyone is having a great weekend and I will be sharing more bookish posts with you in the upcoming week! Happy ready bookworms!
I did my first Wrap Up video and talk about all the books I read in April including my selections for the magical readathon!
I’m back bookworms and I have a new review for you! I will be posting about the Iceland trip a little later when I have gone through my photos. I read this book while traveling in Iceland. It is called Vanished by Mark Bierman and it was pretty good. The book cover was cool too. This is a huge thing in my eyes. I believe that every book deserves an eye-catching book cover.
Synopsis: Tragedy . . . heartache . . . how much more can Tyler Montgomery and John Webster take? This missions trip, the “healing” one, has only added fresh layers of pain. Construction of an orphanage in Haiti’s northwest . . . yes. But a doomed rescue operation, human traffickers, human anomalies, extreme personal danger . . . risk of death? They hadn’t signed up for those. Turning their backs on the crisis, however, is unthinkable, it’s just not who they are.
This book was very interesting. Every scene moved quickly but it kept the plot moving along and it made it so that the storyline never really had a dull pause. It’s funny because one of the main characters is named John Webster and I actually know a John Webster 😛
The book brings light to a huge issue. Human Trafficking. It is such a big problem in 3rd world countries and it’s brutal because a lot of the human trafficking is children that are stolen or kidnapped off the street and thrown into slavery. In this book, the main characters are trying to save a young girl who has been kidnapped and put into slavery. So many people would turn a blind eye to it and say that there is no hope and she is gone but not John and Tyler. They go through a lot to find this girl and see unimaginable things that are genuinely upsetting but very real. There are a lot of cool characters introduced along the way and the story is told from all different perspectives that intertwine by the end.
The only thing I didn’t really like about the book was that there are some characters that are introduced and it seems like there will be more to them but then they are just dropped and out of the story, never to be heard of again. It only happened with one or two characters but I would have liked to hear more about their part in the whole thing.
Overall, it was an action-packed adventure that will have you on your toes from start to finish.

My friend Dani @ Touch My Spine Book Reviews is being attacked by WordPress for interacting with her fellow bloggers and liking/commenting on their posts. This is really not cool on WordPress’ part. I enjoy talking to Dani and she is always great for having a fun discussion abut books or just being a nice person. She doesn’t deserve to be called a spammer.
I couldn’t be more upset! I did nothing for spam behavior and I got sent this after inquiring about my followers!!! Look at this email!!!! I did nothing wrong at all guys! My spammish behavior was following like 5 or so people and commenting on my followers and posting a few times!!! Now it’s not […]
via So I might be Super Screwed Because of WordPress! Please read my followers! I might not be able to communicate much longer!😭 — Touch My Spine Book Reviews
The fact that the guy emailing her has the title of Happiness Engineer is a joke. He should recognize that she isn’t a spammer and help her out considering she put time and money into her website with them.
