Another week has come and gone at ReadLove ! Here’s what you may have missed:
Kids Corner: Aoléon The Martian Girl Part One: First Contact by Brent LeVasseur
3 of 5 Hearts. Good Storyline and Excellent Artwork Lift a Text in Need of an Editor. Aoléon The Martian Girl Part One: First Contact is the first entry in a five-part series.

Kids Corner: T.A. Barron – “Countdown to a Meaningful Life” Week 7: Hope
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.

Don’t expect too much in the way of history or surprises, but if it’s a love story you crave, this one will entertain, especially in its final, exciting chapters. [Read the full review]
