This week we are on the letter V. Remember me telling you that we were getting to some letters that it was tougher to find titles that we enjoyed for? Well, this is one of them. One giggly girl had a book to suggest and I had one from a series we really like. That’s it for the letter V. So if you have any good V-titled books, please share them in the comments.
Vaklyrie by Kate O’Hearn
Miss E is providing the synopsis: Based on Norse mythology, it is centered on the Valkyries. It is about a Valkyrie named Freya. In the beginning of the book, she becomes a full-fledged Valkyrie. She reaps her first full spirit and he asks her for a favor. She returns to Earth to find that spirit’s family, to tell them what happened to him and that he loved them. She found them but the grandmother was taking care of his girls and she was dying. Freya had to help the grandmother find a permanent situation for the girls after she died. Along the way, she makes a friend named Archie, a human boy, and he helps her with her tasks.
She really enjoyed this story, as well as the 2nd book of the trilogy. She is impatiently waiting for the 3rd book in the trilogy to be released. It is possible that it has been and she just doesn’t know it. Either way, she really wants to read it!
Voyage on the Titanic (Dear America series)
This is one of the Dear America series and these books are written as diaries. They are a historical fiction but are enjoyable to read. We have found them to be a good way to personify a time in history that we are somewhat unfamiliar with yet know that the information is fairly accurate.
Summary: Margaret was left in the care of an orphanage when her brother immigrated to America. Now she is to go to America to join him. She is to get there on the great ship Titanic. What is expected to be the new beginning of a wonderful life take an unexpected turn when the ship collides with an iceberg.
Well, that’s it for this week. If you have any good titles, please share them in the comments!
