Looking for more great middle grade books from My Secret Guide to Paris author Lisa Schroeder?
When she’s not hanging out at her family’s sweetshop, Libby loves walking her dog around London.
Hannah’s parents have a surprise for her, and she’s sure it’s her dream come true: a horse of her own.
Everyone says she can still ride the mule, even in the 4-H parade, but how silly will that look?
Twelve-year-old Isabel is dying to get out of her small town of Willow, Oregon, and travel like her best friend, Sophie. In this companion novel to It’s Raining Cupcakes, twelve-year-old Sophie has a dream come true when she’s offered a TV commercial spot.
But then she finds out what exactly she’ll be advertising: the delectable, ever-popular brownies from Beatrice’s Brownies, which just so happens to be the number one competitor to It’s Raining Cupcakes, a cupcake shop owned by her best friend, Isabel’s, family.
When Lily is invited to be a part of a mother-daughter book club called The Baking Bookworms, she is excited—and terrified.
But she does have the music gene, which is why she’s forming a band that will audition for their school’s annual Spring Fling.
Soon, Lily finds herself knee-deep in sugar and sheet music as she tries to juggle her responsibility to her bandmates AND give her friend the best party ever. As we speak-literally as I am typing this-I am re-reading a favorite of mine, The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. So, before we launch into the book recommendations, let me just tell you-all of these can be found on Audible AND you can get a free 30 day trial so you can get a book a listen now for free!
And, a fun new release at Audible this month, Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book: The Mowgli Stories! Secrets of a Charmed Life by Susan Meissner: Another World War II story and another mystery (can you tell what kind of books I like?). Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok: Story of immigrants from Asia living in America and trying to make ends meet and get by while also learning to live within a new culture.
Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline: This tells the story of a girl sent West on the orphan train last century and jumps back to the present to the story of a girl dealing with her own version of an orphan train as she navigates foster care.
Edenbrooke and Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson: In the mood for a fast, clean, cheesy romance?
Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman: If you liked The Help, this one reminded me of it a little bit. Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer, Annie Barrows: Another WWII book, but this one takes a lighter, more comical spin. Persuasion by Jane Austen: I know that you all know Jane Austen already, but if you haven’t read this one, do it!
The Selection (and the whole series) by Kiera Cass: Think the Bachelor meets The Hunger Games. Hattie Big Sky by Kirby Larson: Young girl finds herself with no family but a plot of land in Montana and heads out there to try to make a go of it.
As Amy goes into labor, she flashes back to the first time she met Ricky at band camp and how he charmed her. So anyway, one time, while we were chatting, our new helper observed, "Ma'am, ang yaman-yaman niyo siguro. Just a few years ago, I'd never have believed that I can do what I love, earn from it, and do it from home, too.
Even though I love this work-at-home arrangement, I do have plans on going back to the corporate world, especially now that I have two boys in school—I'll have more time and I'll have a regular income. Ever since she could remember, Violet and her mother have been locked away in a tower by the evil Queen Bogdana, who has the kingdom under her spell.
She's not sure what her grandma wants her to find, but Nora knows there are wonderful surprises waiting for her in Paris.
I have a new series for 8-12 year olds called CHARMED LIFE, about four girls who meet at summer camp and think they've found a lucky bracelet. Mia has always loved living in southern California, where she takes every chance she gets to surf. Hannah's parents have a surprise for her, and she's sure it's her dream come true: a horse of her own. But she does have the music gene, which is why she's forming a band that will audition for their school's annual Spring Fling. School Library Journal says: "The combination of baking and bands will initially attract many girls, but it's the short chapters and simple diction that keep the plot cooking.
Twelve-year-old Sophie has always dreamed of being an actress, in front of the cameras and in the spotlight.
In this companion novel to It's Raining Cupcakes, Lisa Schroeder offers up another fun story about friendship, dreams and scrumptious sweet treats. Twelve-year-old Isabel dreams of traveling but has never been out of Oregon, and so when her best friend, Sophie, tells her of a baking contest whose winners travel to New York City, she eagerly enters, despite concerns about her mother, who is opening a cupcake bakery. The interior of the book is so much fun, with wonderful artwork at the beginning of every chapter.
Oh, yes, that's right, I've decided to send out a quarterly newsletter in an effort to stay in better touch with my readers, along with teachers, librarians, and parents who might be interested.
In the meantime, don't forget there are now THREE books in the CHARMED LIFE series out now. We know you probably binge-watched your heart out over the holidays, and your queue is likely overflowing with Netflix’s recently added films. You’ll begin by scrolling through Netflix’s TV section, but shortly feel overwhelmed by the copious options at hand. With everything from reality guilty pleasures to epic period dramas to cult comedies, we have the best recommendations that you probably never knew existed.
If you spend the majority of your time watching cat videos, reblogging cat memes and just generally loving cats, then please meet “My Cat From Hell,” your new favorite show. Some of the best guilty pleasure television series are reality shows about weddings and marriage or investigative cop dramas. Described as “Pretty Little Liars” meets “Charmed” meets “The Craft” meets “Gossip Girl” by one Huffington Post editor, “The Secret Circle” is all the magical girl drama you could ask for.
A handful of series and films have focused on the life of King Arthur, but few have centered on wizard Merlin, and most particularly, on his early life before he became the bearded sorcerer from Disney's “The Sword in the Stone.” BBC One’s “Merlin” follows the life of the young wizard when he arrives in Camelot at a time when magic is banned, and thus, is forced to keep his sorcery a secret.
While you may remember Nickelodeon's “Are You Afraid Of the Dark?", you might not have known that another horror fantasy series existed in the '90s.
This award-winning cult British comedy follows Mark, an employed average guy, and his roommate Jeremy "Jez," an unemployed slacker whose main hobbies include drugs, sex and talking about sex. This cult favorite was Judd Apatow’s follow-up to his acclaimed “Freaks and Geeks” and centered on a group of college freshman in the early aughts.

This American-British comedy was created by and starred David Cross (“Arrested Development”) as the title character, an American who takes a job in London running a two-man sales team for a new energy drink.
You may have heard of this crime drama that aired on Fox back in 2009 and it may have seemed like another one of those lousy new cop shows to avoid. The Scottish version of “The L Word,” BBC’s “Lip Service” is the lesbian drama that will (somewhat) satiate your longing for the ladies of West Hollywood. This comedic BBC series is comprised of four seasons, each of which take place in a different historical time period. This BBC drama set in 1950s London is based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, a British nurse, and the midwives and nuns who worked with her at a nursing convent.
Adapted from the novels and the 1967 British series of the same name, “The Forsyte Saga” chronicles a Victorian upper-middle class British family over the course of three generations. Joss Whedon’s space drama is set 500 years in the future and follows the adventures of the renegade crew of the Serenity. It all begins here, as baby-faced rookie Officer Tom Hanson (Johnny Depp) is assigned to an elite squad of young undercover cops -- Judy Hoffs (Holly Robinson Peete), Doug Penhall (Peter DeLuise) and Harry Truman Ioki (Dustin Nguyen) -- to infiltrate high schools and fight crime. When she breaks her foot, she tries to stay busy, making scrapbooks, but she’s still bored. She always meets the most interesting people — like Cedric, who’s her age and also has a dog. Hannah is so embarrassed, and she needs the luck from her Cabin 7 BFFs’ charm bracelet more than ever!
But when Isabel’s mother decides to open up a cupcake shop across town, Isabel is once again stuck in Willow for the summer…until she learns of a baking contest where the finalists get an all-expenses paid trip to New York City to compete in the final bake-off.
I love to soak up the sunshine with a good book in tow, and I love having fun, engaging, great books whether it’s for while I am on a trip or just bumming on a summer afternoon or sitting by the pool. One of my favorite things to do on a road trip with my boys is to listen to a book while we drive. It’s a fun adaptation on the original The Jungle Book story and it’s available now! If you need a good laugh while, also, needing a box tissues nearby, then this book is a must. Elsewhere, Tom tries to get Grace and Jack back together, and Adrian realizes she still cares for Ricky. So I can finally sleep in now, and I can cook happily now because the dishes and pans are all washed and clean now, and the floors aren't sticky anymore now, so basically I'm not so tired anymore now.
So much of my life is so different from what I thought it would be, and far better than what my parents dreamed it to be, because of technology.
Through social media, I'm already sending out feelers, tapping and making connections, just in case!
But inside she discovers something truly amazing ― a letter from WWII, from a young girl to her sister, who has been evacuated from London. Not only is it an amazing piece of history, the letter is exactly what she needs ― she is also separated from her sister, though not by distance.
Of course, she's never actually been there -- she's only visited through her Grandma Sylvia's stories. And maybe, amongst the croissants and macarons, she'll even find a way to heal her broken heart. These books are ultimately about friendship, and how sometimes in life we get lucky in finding friends when we least expect it. Especially since she always meets the most interesting people -- like Cedric, who's her age and also has a dog. You will find information on me, my books, school visits, upcoming appearances, and much more.
It feels like I've been working on this book forever, and I'm SO thrilled young readers will get to read it soon!
I plan on sharing some exclusive sneak peeks with my newsletter subscribers in a few months.
The latest one, Libby's Sweet Surprise, takes place in England, where she lives with her aunt and uncle who own a sweet shop!! But when it comes to being adventurous on Netflix, choosing a new show is harder than it sounds.
Indecisive, you'll likely give in and throw on an old “Law and Order” or “30 Rock" to pass the time. Portrayed by Emma Watson and Taissa Farmiga, respectively, in Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring,” these two are more idiotic and dramatic than most reality TV stars. Combine the two and add a big, juicy, real-life secret and you get “Who the (Bleep) Did I Marry.” The show, from the Discovery-owned network Investigation Discovery, follows men and women who discover that their spouse committed a crime while they were married. The series, which lasted for a full 22-episode season on The CW, starred Britt Robertson (“Under the Dome”) as Cassie Blake, a 16-year-old who moves to a new town after the death of her mother. The series also starred John Hurt as the voice of The Dragon (how epic is that?) and all five seasons are on Netflix for your magical viewing pleasure. Based on the popular books, “Goosebumps” was made into a Canadian television series so all those spooky stories could come alive on-screen.
Each episode opens with Todd in an increasingly bizarre, dire situation and flashes black to how he got there. The British series takes place in Glasgow, Scotland and, similar to the Showtime favorite, follows the lives of a group of lesbian friends and their complex relationships and sex lives. Co-written by Richard Curtis (“Love Actually”), the show stars Rowan Atkinson as anti-hero Edmund Blackadder, who in each season is a member of a British family dynasty. The mini-series, which aired for two seasons, starred Damien Lewis of “Homeland” and Gina McKee as Soames and Irene Forsyte.
O’Bannon follows John Crichton (Ben Browder), an astronaut who is hurled across space through a wormhole.
The show, which won an Emmy for Visual Effects, starred Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Alan Tudyk, and Morena Baccarin. They become fast friends, until Libby finds out his family are the new owners of a competing store! Because Isabel, one of the Baking Bookworms, has asked Lily to help plan a surprise party for their mutual friend Sophie. I’ve gathered a list of GREAT books for you to try out this summer if you love summer reading too! More of the family history mystery style book and this one’s one of my favorites by her.
Still, since she's new, I've had to teach her how to clean, how the machines in the house work, and many other minutiae like you can't vacuum until you've thoroughly swept the floor and looked through the cushions because there are definitely tiny Lego parts there and everywhere.
With just a computer, a smart phone and an internet connection, I can work, I can play, I can entertain, I can learn, I can teach, I can keep in touch, I can go places.

I Uber everywhere and I work from everywhere because my iPhone and my SMART LTE connection allows me to reply to important emails and messages while stuck in traffic. And just in case I do go back to working in an office, I can rely on calls and messages with my family to keep us connected throughout the day. Sometimes I think my kids wouldn't need to go to school anymore because all the knowledge in the world is at their fingertips. When I explained to her the many things that technology has changed in my life and in the world, she was amazed. However, she just ended up downloading apps for my kids to enjoy and watching funny Facebook videos that made her happy. Alice will be leaving for university soon, and in the meantime, she seems to want nothing to do with Phoebe.
And just when they've finally planned a trip together, Grandma Sylvia is suddenly gone, taking Nora's dreams with her. Bored enough that when a famous young actress asks her to come bird-watching with her to take photos, Mia jumps at the chance.
When Lily is invited to be a part of the mother-daughter book club called The Baking Bookworms, she is excited and terrified. Because Isabel, one of the Baking Bookworms, has asked Lily to help plan a surprise birthday party for their mutual friend, Sophie. So she keeps the specifics of her budding acting career under wraps, as she doesn't want their friendship crumbling faster than a stale brownie. If you are a teacher or librarian interested in scheduling a Skype visit with me, there is more information HERE. So when Nora finds letters and a Paris treasure map among her Grandma Sylvia's things, she dares to dream again .
But that's the old you, and we're here to introduce you to a slew of shows, recent and old, that you've probably never heard of and that you'll definitely love.
This Animal Planet series stars Jackson Galaxy, a self-proclaimed cat behaviorist (yep, that's a thing) with an extravagant goatee, who helps solve conflicts between cats and their owners. Homeschooled by lessons from “The Secret” (it's worth watching just for that), in denial of their involvement in the robberies (they're just such good people), and drugged up on Adderall (by their mother), Alexis and Tess are so obnoxious you probably won’t be able to stop watching. Cassie soon discovers that she comes from a long-line of witches and is the final member of her new classmates’ coven. From “Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes" to "The Haunted Mask" to "Say Cheese and Die," “Goosebumps” is full of fun and creepy nostalgia. Some standout highlights include Jez poisoning Mark with cold medicine to save a drug party and Jez restraining a burglar by sitting on him.
Although the show only lasted for one season, it was celebrated as one of the best college shows that avoided cliches.
Spanning from the British Middle Ages to World War I, Atkinson’s Blackadder characters return each season as descendants of his former characters, each one growing more clever as time goes on. Crichton ends up boarding an alien starship housing a group of fugitives escaping the militaristic organization the Peacekeepers.
These Alphas, which include an FBI agent with super strength and an autistic man who can process information as fast as a computer, work to prevent crimes from being committed by other Alphas. Libby tries to keep her parents’ business a secret, because she really likes Cedric and wants to be his friend.
Can Isabel finally realize her dreams of leaving Willow without hurting two of the most important people in her life?
And the task is…creating a showstopping, mouthwatering, thirteenth-birthday-party-worthy dessert. When I am not being a mom or a wife I love to bake, I love to sew, I love to read and I don't like to sit still. Then I handed her the iPad Mini that SMART gave me and said, "Eto, mag-enroll ka sa mga TESDA courses. Libby tries to keep her family's business a secret, because she really likes Cedric and wants to be his friend. Hannah is so embarrassed, and she needs the luck from her Cabin 7 BFFs' charm bracelet more than ever! If silly, goofball dude humor is your thing, “Peep Show” will definitely keep you laughing.
Nothing beats a good ol' 00s throwback with some of today's best comedians before they reached their prime. The series also starred Hugh Laurie, Miranda Richardson and Stephen Fry, and had multiple one-off specials. The Jim Henson Company worked on the make-up for the show, as well as two of the main animatronic characters.
But the secrets start adding up, and Libby needs the charm bracelet she shares with her besties to bring her some luck . Welcome to Crazy Little Projects where I show off my latest crazy projects and show you how you can do them too. Adjustment period but if she proves to be masipag, masinop and mapagkakatiwalaan, I believe life would be much easier soon.
In fact, I know a lot of parents who homeschool their kids and every time I look at the traffic outside my window, I see why this is an option that gets more attractive each day. But hope quickly fades when Violet's mother is banished from the castle and they're forbidden to see each other ever again. But now that Phoebe has this magical list ― maybe she can try the spell herself, and make everything go back to the way it was!
You'll also learn a surprising amount of useful tips on how to properly care for cats; the puurfect bundle of education, cuteness and drama.
All four seasons of “Farscape” are streaming on Netflix for your intergalactic viewing pleasure.
One character is trying to find out clues to things that happened in the past and unravel a family mystery. Speaking of traffic, it hardly figures in my life because I work from home most of the time anyway. I can be a working woman and a mommy at the same time—Googling recipes for my blog sponsor Jolly canned food while teaching my son to cook is just one example.
