The Week in Reviews: ReadLove Recap For the Week Beginning March 2nd


Another week has come and gone at ReadLove ! Here’s what you may have missed:


Kids Corner Spotlight & Giveaway — Flunked: Fairy Tale Reform School by Jen Calonita

Gilly wouldn’t call herself wicked exactly…but when you have five little brothers and sisters and live in a run-down boot, you have to get creative to make ends meet. Gilly’s a pretty good thief (if she does say so herself). Until she gets caught.

Gilly’s sentenced to three months at Fairy Tale Reform School — where all of the teachers are former (super-scary) villains like the Big Bad Wolf, the Evil Queen, and Cinderella’s Wicked Stepmother. Harsh. But when she meets fellow students Jax and Kayla, she learns there’s more to this school than its heroic mission. There’s a battle brewing and Gilly has to wonder: can a villain really change?

Kids Corner: T.A. Barron – “Countdown to a Meaningful Life” Week 6: Generosity

ReadLove joins T.A. Barron for a special blog series to celebrate the upcoming publication of The Wisdom of Merlin: 7 Magical Words for a Meaningful Life. This seven-week countdown campaign will be based on Merlin’s answer to the question, “What is the meaning of life?”

Surprisingly, the answer has only seven words…but they are the most powerful words of all.

Join with us each week as we focus on one of these magical words with supporting content that will help us acknowledge, reflect, practice, and get inspired to embark on a new adventure or live life to its fullest.
