Childhood Favorites...Bunnicula

Childhood favorites. Everyone has a favorite book or author from childhood. A book that touched them or changed them. A book that perhaps initiated their love of reading and put them on the path of libraries and learning.

Donald Zolan, Quiet Time.

Childhood Favorites is a monthly series focusing on beloved books from the past. 

A new bunny arrives in the house. Harold the dog and Chester the cat are certain he's a vampire because he has markings on his fur that look like a cape and vegetables begin showing up, drained dry of their juice.


I'm not sure who brought Bunnicula home, but it quickly became a favorite book for me and my sisters. So clever, so fun. A vampire bunny? And the dog and cat getting into trouble as they try and get the bunny into trouble. It's no wonder that I introduced my boys to Bunnicula and they loved him as well. This is another story that is rather timeless.

What about you? What is one of your childhood favorites?

#CoverCrush: The House on Harbor Hill


I will freely admit that I judge books by their covers. The cover is usually what first captures my attention when browsing Goodreads or Netgalley. Actually, in all honesty, it isn't just usually, it's pretty much all the time. The cover determines if I look at the synopsis and reviews.


An older house with columns and a brick walkway. So majestic. A lone suitcase sits at the top of the steps. Whose it it? Is that person leaving or arriving? What is the story?

#CoverCrush: No Less Days


I will freely admit that I judge books by their covers. The cover is usually what first captures my attention when browsing Goodreads or Netgalley. Actually, in all honesty, it isn't just usually, it's pretty much all the time. The cover determines if I look at the synopsis and reviews.


I really like the simplicity of this cover. A rainy night. A used book store. Who doesn't love the appeal of a used bookstore? A man walking. What is he searching for? Is he looking for a person? A place to stay? Is he lost or just wandering? What is his story?
