Free eBook (yes, another eBook ;b)

In my last blogpost I wrote of how I was cautious of eBooks.

When I downloaded those free Kendra Ardnek books I accidentally downloaded one other free short story.

I almost deleted it, but my mom was like, "It's free, it's a fairy tale. Check it out. If it isn't good then delete it."

Wow. That short story ended up being one of the best accidents ever.

I loved it so much that I decided "If there are more, I'm going to buy them, even if they are ebooks."

Thankfully they are available in both paperback and hardcover :) And I'm buying these VERY soon :) Also, while doing this blog post, I found out that the author was home schooled and has three kids :) that's pretty neat, I think :)

Of eBooks, Real Books, and Author Kendra Ardnek

On the blog , Splendor Falls on Castle Walls, Miss Melody Muffin writes a lot about a certain author, Kendra Ardnek that writes fairy tales/fantasy stories full of comedy and Christian morals

Those are just my sort of stories and I told Melody so.

So, back in December when Miss Ardnek had a free ebook sale, Melody told me about it, and I downloaded them all! Lol.

Now I have never read ebooks before, and I'm trying to stay away from them as much as possible. (I have this fear that ebooks will eventually replace real books, so I'm trying to mostly only read paperbacks and hardcovers :b).

Anyways I just started reading the stories last month.

I know. (WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG!?) But.. like I said, they were ebooks.

Once I started them I had to finish them all...

All but one were short stories, but still I did fly through them. I must admit her books were different than what I expected but I still enjoyed them.

So, here are the ones I downloaded and my thoughts on each one. A few o…

Rebels of the Heavey Kingdom by Katherine Paterson [book review]

Rebels of the Heavenly Kingdom by Katherine Paterson




Buy on Amazon

My rating: 4.5 stars because I loved this book and it was a well written plot, but there was one inappropriate paragraph at the end that totally shocked me (not a Paterson thing I thought). Because of that and much violence in the book I'd say this book is only appropriate for readers 16+. Even then use caution.

Genre: Historical fiction, Taiping war, religious, political,

Goodreads:
Newbery Medal author Paterson presents the story of Wang Lee, the young son of starving peasants in 1850's China. Seized by bandits and carried away from home during the Taiping Rebellion, Wang Lee meets Mai Lin when members of her undercover society save him from his captors.


Amazon:
Carried away by bandits, Wang Lee is rescued by the Heavenly Kingdom of Great Peace and he joins the group's leader, Mai Lin, in the battle against betrayal, oppression, and tyranny. Reprint. AB. PW.


My review and thoughts:

I couldn't find many goo…
