Green Heart combines two novels: Green Angel and Green Witch. Green loses her family in Green Angel and then she records stories about people who have lost tremendously in Green Witch. However, in Green Witch, she records the story of the fabled witches of the town. She learns what has happened to them and how they aren't any special, just some women who have lost tremendously just like the townspeople. Both stories have good pacing of the plot and it isn't boring. That is to say that it isn't fast paced either. The plot just moves at a steady pace and Alice Hoffman writes not in the way we are use to reading books with dialogue and this book does have dialogue, but its in italics and there isn't too many dialogue in here. Two great novels that I recommend everyone to read.

Green is the name of the protagonist, and let me tell you she is brave. It might not look like that at first, but she makes a 360 degree turn halfway through Green Angel. She is a girl with mental and physical strength, with a good heart, with a great understanding of people and the world, and with something some of us might not find in hard times and that is beauty and what we already have. Green learns to trust people and move on despite what the fire took from her. Yes, a deadly fire just like the Colorado takes lives of many people including Green's whole family. At first, she wallows in her pain and that is given, but then her heart starts to heal as she realizes that others have lost someone as well. She learns to spend joy and help others, especially with her tremendous green thumb. Green is a powerful character that will have any reader wanting to be just like her.

Hello Bad Kitty!
I will say I love the personality of bad kitty. He is anything but your typical cat, and this bad kitty loves attention, but this kitty is about to meet the baby. Now bad kitty tries everything to get attention but in the end the baby wins. The baby manages to get the bad kitty to like him.
This book is geared towards children more but it reads like a chapter book. Therefore, a child can feel like they are reading an adult book when in fact its for them. I didn't enjoy the book in the beginning because it was a little slow and boring for me, but once I got to the end of the story I found that I wanted to read more of the bad kitty books.
The plot of this book is real simple and its get to the point. There are also very interesting kitties in this book such as the stinky kitty, the pretty kitty, the strange kitty and many more. Children will definitely love bad kitty and the thing is its been the NY Times Bestseller list as well. I would definitely recommend this book to children because its funny, quirky, entertaining and mischievous so I highly recommend not to learn anything from bad kitty besides all the good stuff. Have fun!

I know I said that I would blog more often but it turns out that these past 5 weeks or so I haven't read anything worth blogging about. In fact, two of the books were real slow and the others were boring. I was reading them just so I could find out what happens next. I do intend to go back on track with blogging about any interesting books I have read so far. I also will include a little review of the books I had read in my upcoming blogs. In the meantime, do continue to go through my self because there might be readers out there who haven't looked through the whole self yet. And for those who do, there might be books that you haven't looked at yet.
That being said, thank you for reading my blog and continuing to stay updated with me even though I hadn't exactly posted a review of anything.
