Smashwords book reviews by Becky Villareal

  • Broken on June 25, 2014

    After reading "Broken" a second time, I realized Jessica Schmeidler has written a haunting tale of revenge and forgiveness wrapped up in a tangle of emotions. Her descriptions are clear and concise leaving the reader breathless after each sentence. Excellent writer, I would like to see more of her writing.
  • Shape Treasure Hunt on Sep. 20, 2014

    The concept of this book is a good one. Doing a scavenger hunt using shapes is appropriate for this age group. However, the beginning readers are learning basic two-dimensional shapes (squares, triangles, rectangles, circles, ovals etc.) So, using three dimensional shapes might be difficult for beginning readers. Good luck with your writing!
  • Travel the World With the Numbers (The Adventures of the Numbers 2) for Kids Ages 4-7. on Jan. 03, 2018

    I really enjoyed this travels the numbers went on in this particular book. This series is a great resource for reading aloud to children.
