Lullabye for Gabriel


My Bonnie Boy

Go to sleep my bonnie boy
Close your eyes my little lamb
May your bed be soft and sweet
And your dreams be filled with me

The grass is in the meadow
And the heathers on the Moore
But my bonnie boy is sleeping
Lying warm on Nana’s knee

Go to sleep by bonnie boy
Close your eyes my little lamb
May you hear the angels singing
As they guard you while you sleep

When you wake my little lamb
There’ll be time enough to play
But for now you need to be
Sleeping soundly here with me

Book Review for “Clockwork Princess” Fantasy/Fiction

I thouroughly enjoyed the Mortal Instruments series, so I went on to read the Infernal Devices. I have to say, I liked the prequels even more. I think it was because of the steampunk element and the time in which the books take place. Very well written. The flawed characters are endearing. I hated for the story to end. I give the book, and all three in the series 5 stars.

Book Review for “Tent City”_YA Dystopian
I was given a copy of “Tent City” by the author, Kelly Van Hull, in exchange for an honest review. This is a book intended for young audiences and I think it does a great job for that age group. As a Christian I am always a little disappointed when the bad people are crazy religious fanatics, but I know it could happen. There isn’t a lot of mention of religion, it is just the background story of the General/pastor who has taken over the country. It is a good story about survival and friendships, with a love triangle thrown in. I think that this theme is becoming the overrunning love story of YA books, but it is done well. The main character is a teenage girl who can’t wait to get out on her own, only to figure out that home was great. I give this book 4 stars for it’s intended audience but I think that it might not appeal to all adults. I enjoyed it and hope there is more to come.
