Pages- 416
My rating- 5 of 5 stars
 Reviewer- Stephanie

A Shadow Bright and Burning was one of my most anticipated reads of the year, and I was not let down! Jessica Cluess is able to create a fantastic storyline with so many twists and turns! I would highly recommend this book! The only problems that I had with this book was the characters did not seem to be developed as well as they could have been. I am looking forward to the next book!

The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis

The Wolf Road
Title and Author-The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis
Publisher-The Borough Press
Pages- 400
My rating- 4 of 5 stars
 Reviewer- Stephanie

The Wolf Road is a thrilling novel that can be very dark at times. Once I read the synopsis I was hooked! The wolf road wasn't what I expected, but it was still a great read. This book can be hard to get through at times, but it is well worth reading through to the end. Beth Lewis is a great author and this book is a must read! I was very pleased with the writing style.

Punderdome: A Card Game for Pun Lovers by Jo Firestone

Punderdome: A Card Game for Pun Lovers

Pages- 200
My rating- 1 of 5 stars
 Reviewer- Stephanie

I recently read the description of this game and thought that I HAD to have it! Who doesn't like puns? Well, this Game was quite a letdown... there are some jokes on the front of the cards that seemed a little too easy to guess and the fact that I knew most of the answers didn't seem fair to the other players. playing this game with only three or four people didn't seem to make it any better. I was expecting a lot more and was let down.

From the daughter-father duo that created Brooklyn's beloved live pun competition comes Punderdome, the "Punderful card game [that] will replace Cards Against Humanity at your next party" (

One part game, one part conversation starter, you don't need to be a pun master to master Punderdome: the goal is to make bad jokes and have fun along the way.

A player (the prompter for that round) draws two prompt cards from the deck, and then reads the prompts to the rest of the group, who have 90 seconds to create a single, groan-worthy pun that combines the two prompts.     

When time is up, pun makers share their puns with the prompter, who awards the prompt cards to the player whose pun he or she likes best. The winner then draws the next pair of prompt cards and the process repeats. Players win by obtaining 10 pairs of cards.

Every Game Set Comes With:
·         200 double-sided cards (100 White and 100 Green)
·         2 Mystery Envelopes with fill-in prize slips
·         2 80-page pads for drafting puns
·         1 instruction card and 1 pun example card
·         A stu-PUN-dous time for 3 or more players

My name is Tess Turner - at least, that's what I've always been told.

I have a voice but it isn't mine. It used to say things so I'd fit in, to please my parents, to please my teachers. It used to tell the universe I was something I wasn't. It lied.

It never occurred to me that everyone else was lying too. But the words that really hurt weren't the lies: it was six hundred and seventeen words of truth that turned my world upside down.

Words scare me, the lies and the truth, so I decided to stop using them.

I am Pluto. Silent. Inaccessible. Billions of miles away from everything I thought I knew.

Tessie-T has never really felt she fitted in and after what she read that night on her father's blog she knows for certain that she never will. How she deals with her discovery makes an entirely riveting, heart-breaking story told through Tess's eyes as she tries to find her place in the world.
