Welcome to Billy’s Book Blog. Every time I, Billy, finish a book, I will write up a nice little review just to let you know what I’ve been reading and what I think about it. I’m a pretty speedy reader, so there will be a new post once a week give or take. Sometimes I’ll have guest reviews from other members of the Bum Family or my very best friends.

Hasta la vista, suckers!

 The Fountain

By Suzy Vadori

16-year-old Ava Marshall goes to the same boarding school that her mother and father went to. Ava encounters many troubles but the biggest is Courtney Wallace who keeps trying to get Ava expelled!  While attending St. Augustus Ava discovers a mysterious fountain that almost always leads to trouble. The West woods may be forbidden to students but, Ava’s not gonna let that stop her!

This book was good and I enjoyed it much more than the sequel The West Woods. This book was good because the author used lots of description and detail such as telling the little facts that come into play later. Like when the author says that Ava’s Dad would have never got through high school without Courtney’s dad so he has a different job than before Ava’s wish. I had fun reading this book and it only had a few cringe-worthy moments. I hope that when you read this book (if you do) you will enjoy it as much as I did!


⭐️ This book had just the right amount of humour and other stuff


⭐️  This book had lots of fun within its pages


💫   I wish that I was finished this stupid book review so I can go read!

By the way, the only reason I put up with writing this review is so I can actually read my books (if I don’t write a review they get taken away). I know no one is actually going to read this.

This book was really good even though I haven’t read the 3rd and 4th books yet I plan to. I finished this book in a day and I had to skip to the end just to make sure the characters made it out okay, because who likes a book where the main characters die?

⭐️  This book was funny and used lots of detail and description


⭐️  I had to skip to the end to make sure everyone was okay


💫  I wish the people reading the books at the library would hurry up so I could read the books in order

In a Handful of Dust

By Mindy McGinnis

Lynn and Lucy must head west to escape a deadly sickness. As they leave the sanctuary of their pond they find a couple of surprises along their way. Will Lynn and Lucy survive their deadly journey or will they die trying? Just remember that the only thing bigger than the world is fear.

This book was a good read and I finished it in three days. In A Handful of Dust is the second book to Not a Drop to Drink. I found these books in a little free library and really enjoyed them. In my opinion, the second book is better because you can connect more with the characters. I hope you guys enjoy it too and realize why Dwight here makes such a valid point.

 ⭐️   This book was really well written and I could hardly put it down.

⭐️    The characters became friends to me and the book became a real situation.the author put me in such a position that I don’t think I will ever look at water the same way ever again, but for the valuable resource it truly is.

💫   I wish that Ms. McGinnis had not killed so many people so that I could get the chance to know them then decide if I wanted them dead or not
