End of the Year Stories:

The Time Travelers' Handbook: A Wild Wacky, and Woolly Adventure Though History By: Lottie Stride
Fiction: Children's, history, e-book

First, I got this book as a gift from someone that clearly didn't read that this book was made for a 7 year old.  So when I started reading it I thought that it was an adult novel, and was incredibly disappointed in it.  But if I was a 7 year old that liked history or adventure stories it would be a good book to read.

Ladle Rat Rotten Hut ( A Grimm Diaries Prequel #4) By: Cameron Jace
Fiction: Short Story, E-book

This short story is about little red riding hood as told from her with a lot of things different from the story you know. It is a part of a whole series of books with a new twist on these type of fairy tales. After reading this I plan on reading more of the series.

Herbs Gone Wild! Ancient Remedies Turned Loose By: Diane Kidman
Non-Fiction: Health, Gardening, Cooking, E-book

This book is all about using herbs and other natural remedies in first aid, minor injuries, and as part of a medical treatment plan. It was a good beginner book for herbal remedies; both in the way it explained the basics of it and it wasn' like many books on the subject where a major chunk of the book is on how evil all Western medicine is and/or New Age ideology. It has information both for people that just want to go to a store to buy herbs and people that will grow or find the plants in the wild.
