Twelve Steps to Normal by Farrah Penn



Hello book Friends, and welcome back to the latest blog. I would like to say that I am sorry for being MIA lately and also for being back up on book reviews. I have a lot of real-life struggles right now, so everything else is being pushed to the side and not getting enough attention. So I am asking that those who I have promised reviews to, please be patient with me. Now back to the real reason I am here which is Farrah Penn book Twelve Steps to Normal. I want to thank JimmyPattersonbooks for believing in my work and continues to send me awesome books like Farrah's to read.  Twelve Steps to Normal came out on March 13th, 2018 for release. Now let's get to my Summary and final thoughts on this book.


Twelve Steps to Normal is a Ya Novel about a Young girl Name Kira. Kira's Father becomes an alcoholic after the loss of Kira's Grandmother. Eventually, Kira's father goes to rehab which rips Kira's life apart and causes her to have to move. Now the day has come where Kira father is out of rehab and is ready for her to move back in with him. Kira thinks finally she will have her old life back to normal, but once Kira returns home, not everything is the way it was before. Kira has a hard time dealing with all of the changes. Her ex is dating her best friend, her father has bought a bunch of people home, to live with them and that one boy who was her best friend as a kid, might becoming more than a friend. So how will Kira hand all of this emotional and Physical Change? well if you want to know, you need to buy the book. Now on to my final thoughts about the book.


So first the rating, I rated this book a four out of five stars. The first half of this book seems to be really slow to me. I also feel like Kira father laid too much on Kira when she returns home. He basically expects her to be happy about having three people live with them when he told her nothing about these people. Then her father gets mad at Kira because Kira eventually let the fact that she was angry about the roommates out. I feel like the father just laid too much on Kira emotionally after he returns, and expect her to handle it out like she did when he was drinking. I feel like Kira learn more from the twelve steps program guide than her dad did. Also, I felt like Kira's Friends Whitney and Reagan came off as Pity sometimes, and want to make things always about them. Now as for the new love in Kira life's which was her friend from childhood Alex. I loved Alex, he just seems amazing, and much nicer than most teenage boys. I loved the love story between Alex and Kira. I wish Farrah has written the romance into the story much sooner than she did. The last half of the book want faster than the first half of the books. Overall, Farrah did an awesome job of writing this story. Farrah really did give Kira great growth throughout the book.  Farrah just made Kira so strong as a teenager and I love that about the book. This book was just amazing because of the struggles and growth of Kira as a teenager and person. I honestly would recommend this book to everyone. I can't wait to see what type of book Farrah writes next. As always I will leave links for the book, the author and myself below. Until the next review peeps...

Tea, love, books

Lights Music Code by Jo Whitmore

Hello fellow people I am back with a brand new book review. Its about Lights, Music, Code by Jo Whittemore from the Girls Code series by Penguin books. I would like to thank Penguin for providing me with this third book along with the new activity book Girls who Code: Crack the Code. Both of these books are now release for purchase. Lets begin with the summary and than my final thoughts.

Lights, Music, Code by Jo Whittemore is the third book in a coding series. This book is about Maya, who is an asian american, that lives with her mom and Stepdad. In this book Maya meets an old friend name Maddie who cause her problems before. Now Maddie has turn up at Maya school. She has told Maya that she has change. But the question now is will Maya stay with her true friends which is the group or will Maddie once again cause her problems. 

As for the Activity Book: Girls who Code: Crack the code is filled with crosswords, connect the dots. It also contains code descriptions for coding on computers and scene creation for creating pictures. It really fun activity book for all who want to create.


Here is my creative blog video review on Youtube for this book, Melihbooktube. Once again thank you for allowing me to review these books Penguin.

As for my final thoughts, both of the books are amazing for kids. I read Lights, Music, Code by Jo Whittemore with my daughter and we both enjoyed it. We learn about making Mistakes and what you can do to change those mistakes. We learn how Maya overcame things and help people trust her again. It really is a beautiful story about coming to learn how to earn trust and forgiveness after making mistakes. The activity book is filled with fun crosswords, connect the dots and drawings scenes. I rated both books a four out of five, 7-12yrs olds will really enjoy it. I recommend these books for kids especially. Its such a great series who you really check it out. As always links to the author, books and my social media will be listed there.

Tea, love, books
