I am an avid reader, not a writer. I found I love disappearing in a great story but don't have the patience yet to write my own.
I am a big children's, young adult, historical fiction, and mystery reader. Not too often do I put down other genres, though. If the plot line sounds good, I'll give it a try. I have been reviewing everything I read lately on Booklikes, Goodreads, and my google plus page. Unless the book gives me a totally negative reaction or I am unable to finish, my reviews are tend to be positive. I believe even if I don't like a book, I appreciate the time and energy put into the writing, editing, and publishing and believe a good review should be constructive, for both the potential audience and the author. I, also, enjoy sharing books. I do have a nephew who loves to read, and a 7 year old niece who claims she doesn't but will always be found showing off her skill.

Smashwords book reviews by Brenna Pappert
- Mouse Moonwalk
on July 31, 2014
Mouse Moonwalk is an enjoyable short story about the positives and negatives of fame. Wild Blue Sky writes in uncomplicated language with animals as characters, so a child would be able to read and understand the morality of the story. This story is a great opportunity for parents and children to read together as both can walk away entertained.
- The Mice Meet a Hero
on July 31, 2014
Wilde Blue Sky has a winner with The Mice Meet a Hero. Mr Sky uses animals to relate what being an injured soldier means, but he, also, brings to light that there are "service" animals with our men and women in the military. War Dog, who returns from war injured after his master dies, meets Rolo and Squeak and proceeds to tell them his war stories. War Dog suffers from war injuries and misses his master. Rolo and Squeak proceed to befriend him. This is a children's story, but would be appreciated by adults as well. Wilde Blue Sky does not hide the trauma that War Dog goes through, but he writes it well so a child may have a question or two yet still be able to understand. Mr. Sky's stories are great for a parent and child reading together. I would totally recommend this to others.
- The Junkyard Murders
on Aug. 03, 2014
I enjoyed this book. Please, keep writing. This would make a good full length novel.

Waiting for Shadow
Tracking Jane, a prequel
Copyright © 2014, Eduardo Suastegui
Published by Eduardo Suastegui, Smashwords edition, revision 1.0
Waiting for Shadow is a novella following Jane McMurtry, an Army Reservist and a double amputee,
getting fitted for her prosthetics and trying to start her tracking business while waiting for the dog she trained to be released from military service.
Suastegui keeps the story moving quickly. His main character, Jane is written well, and there is not a moment in the book when the story seems to slow down. I am definitely interested in reading more of the Tracking Jane series.
- Ungrateful Heir
on Nov. 13, 2014
An enjoyable short story. It definitely left me wanting to read more.
- Father Christmas
on Nov. 22, 2014
A sweet story that takes a twist on A Christmas Carol for kids not ready for Dickens. This, also, gives a twist on what Christmas presents wishes could be.
- Letter from a Desperate Father
on Feb. 21, 2016
this would make a great novella to full length novel. I really enjoyed it. Definitely worth reading and I would love to see more
- The Old Balmain House
on Jan. 18, 2018
I received this off Smashwords. It's taken me a while to get back to it. I set it aside, and then decided, once I started up again with The Old Balmain House. I couldn't put it down. The descriptions of the houses, the towns, and the people around the main characters help make the story of Sophie and her bottle a wonderful story.
