Caitlin's Book Review: June Edition

It's time for my June book review: 

I'm so excited to start a new series!

I have recently joined Net Galley, and my life has been changed. I have so many options to review books and get early access to the best releases. 

So without further adieu,  my June book review :)

The Tea Planter’s Bride:  

The romance novel, set in post World War 1, was a beautiful love story centered around family. The second book in the series did not disappoint. It set Sophie up to be the protagnonist. She was a fiery independent spirit that brought a lot of life to the storyline. The climax brought me to tears.  Trotter beautifully intertwined the characters so it did not seem to jump from storyline to storyline. I would highly recommend this book to a friend, and can’t wait to read the next in the series.

Tea Planter's Daughter:

This is the 1st book in the Tea Planter series. I read the books backward, and really was glad I knew what was ahead. Clarissa is set on saving her family's tea plantation and begins a love/hate relationship with the rival tea plantation's heir. The plot twists and now in England, Clarissa must start from the bottom. I loved this book, and couldn't stop turning the pages, hoping for a love story to unfold.
I would highly recommend this book to a friend. 

Puppy Mind:

A book on youth mindfulness. This children’s book encourages mindfulness with young children. I thought the use of a puppy mind was a great way to explain the topic of mindfulness. Puppy mind would be great for my speech classroom because it prepares kids to meet their pragmatics goals.

Calliou goes to school:

Little Calliou is back with an adorable story that would be perfect to prepare little ones for school. It would be perfect to explain to your preschooler about what a school day looks like. I will highly recommend it to my friends with little ones, and my preschooler patient's parents.

My list is short today (I started in the middle of June) but this month, I'm hoping to read at least 5 books.
Have a great hump day!
