The Spinfords by AnnMarie Martin Review

What's the one thing in the world that scares kids the most? Being different.
But not Salvatore. You see, Salvatore's webs are different. Much to his family's disappointment. Because this family of circus-performing spiders has built their act off tradition. Webs are circles, period.

But not Salvatore's. And over his father's squashed body is he going to let him perform with them. It would ruin all they worked for since Grandpa Sebastian Spinford started their show back in 1934. But Salvatore knows better. He knows the crowd is craving something new and fresh. And with his grandfather's help, he's going to prove it.

Salvatore's story will give children of all ages the confidence to be themselves, no matter what.

I recevied a complimentary copy.


Martin has traveled the world as a reporter and editor for the past 10 years. She’s covered world issues as well as more localized ones, met and profiled people from all walks of life, and watched social media change the world of journalism forever.

A little more than halfway through this decade long journey, she decided to also start writing down the stories that were bouncing around in her own head. The Hollow is just one of them.

You can purchase this book on Amazon.

Cassandra's Review-   The whole book is in capital letters so I felt like I should be shouting it while reading.  The message was very clear and yet placed in the book in a more subtle approach.  My family really liked how cute the illustrations were.  Doing what you know to be right, is a powerful thing and most people need realize this as well as being who they are.

Coloring Notebook Review


Coloring Notebook
Paper notebook with coloring pages for adults.
Beauty outside. Amazing inside.
The Coloring Notebook is a happy combo of stylish paper notebooks and traditional adult coloring books.
It has a beauty, leathery hardcover, quality acid-free paper, smart dimensions, and it lies flat when opened.
Each Coloring Notebook has been specifically designed for jotting down notes, sketches and ideas.
Also, it will provide hours of stress relief and mental relaxation.

I recevied complimentary product.

Cassandra's review- The very tightly bound, beautiful notebook is a pleasure to use.  It helps to relax and unwind me from a stressful day.  Being able to either color or draw is great and my kids love to use it as well.  The pages are meant to be left in the book, so it can not really be shared at the same time, but it does make a wonderful keepsake.
