The Sisters Grimm by Michael Buckley
The Fairy Tale Detectives begins with two sisters, Sabrina and Daphne, moving in with their long, lost grandmother, Relda Grimm. Their grandmother has always been a bit of a mystery to them and they aren’t moving in with her under the best of terms. Their parents are missing and now Sabrina and Daphne are in upstate New York eating green meatballs... Read the rest!



Evan and Jessie Treski have always gotten along pretty well for siblings who are only a year apart. They understand each other and appreciate their differences. When Jessie finds out she is going to skip a grade and will now be not only in Evan’s grade, but also in his class things change. Evan is angry about the latest developments, especially because it points out how smart his sister is and makes him feel inferior. With one week to go until school starts they decide to have a contest to see who can sell the most lemonade... Read the rest!







The Begonia House keeps its secrets. Everyone knows that. Everyone, that is, except for clever eleven-year-old Fairday Morrow, whose family has just moved in. Being the Senior Investigator in the Detective Mystery Squad, more commonly known as the DMS, she’s ready to uncover the mysteries hidden within the strange manor. As the investigation gears up and the pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place, the DMS enters into a world where anything is possible, and the danger is most definitely real. Follow along with Fairday and her friends, as spooky meets lovely in this twisting tale of dark secrets and hidden pasts. 





Thanks for popping by! We hope that you will stay and visit with us for a while. Below, you will find an overview of the topics that we discuss on Fairday's Blog! They range from riddles, to reviews, to just things that we like to shout out about : ) 






What Fairday's Blog! is all about...





Fairday's Riddles are posted on Mondays- they can be written about anything, and everything, all at the same time : )

Lizzy's Book Reviews are posted on Wednesdays. Lizzy has read just about every middle grade novel out there, and she loves to share her thoughts and, of course, her opinions.

The Top of the Heap is a post we put up on Thursdays. We thought it would be fun once a week to put up two things that we appreciate and have been thinking about during the week. I enjoy doing this post because I love the google hunt for the perfect image to accompany the topic of discussion.

Margo's Musings Fridays belong to Margo, Fairday's little sister. This post focuses on reviewing local children's book authors, which we follow up with an Author Interview.

The DMS Wants to Know was a post we came up with for Saturdays because when we get together to hang out on the weekend, we always chat about different situations and ideas that are floating around in our brains and we like to listen to what other people think about them- some of the comments we've gotten have been absolutely fascinating! We'd love to hear yours!

    Blogger has been eating quite a few comments lately, aye? =(

    I hope I can finally answer your question . . . *fingers crossed* . . . The school year has actually started where I am, so I'm not enjoying any last few days of freedom. But I do plan to spend what's left of these designated days rereading Persuasion by Jane Austen. =)

    By the way, I have a friend who actually has a different perspective on this time. He can't wait for his children to go back to school! For him, the days of freedom are not about to end, but about to begin!

    Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    "Last Days of Freedom" doesn't really apply to me b/c I'm out of school and my daughter is homeschooled. In any case, we plan to tie up loose ends after our recent out-of-state move.

But mother nature has other plans and its gonna be raining till at least Monday with a Cat 3 Typhoon expected on Sunday morning. So I'll be reading, cleaning and entertaining my 5 and 9 yr old.
