Matilda's 25th Anniversary

Matilda is turning 25 this year! Kind of unbelievable, right? How can it already be 25 years since this wonderfully witty, intelligent five-year-old sprang onto the literary scene, inspiring all of us to read more and fight the man with our powers of telekinesis (Er, or just wish we had powers of telekinesis)?

'Fairest' by Gail Carson Levine--Stefanie's Challenge Book

Remember that time when Kelly challenged me to read Fairest, which just so happens to be a middle grade book? Welp, I’ve done read it and you can find out what I thought about it in the video below!
The fairy Lucinda has once again given a dreadful gift. This time it’s a mysterious magical mirror.
The gift is disastrous when it falls into the hands of Aza, who never looks in a mirror if she can help it. In the Kingdom of Ayortha, Aza is most definitely not the fairest of …
