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.

Thanks for popping over! 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.

Author Interviews are posted on Fridays. The DMS seeks out the best middle grade authors today and brings them here to chat about their stories. 

Margo's Musings Fridays are sometimes shared with Margo, Fairday's little sister. This post focuses on reviewing 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!

Make time to riddle and rhyme!

  1. Thanks for yet another great giveaway!
    GFC: chip

    The luckiest thing to ever happen to me... would probably be getting into medicine at the university in my home town. It was everything I'd ever wanted.
    Looking for the Panacea

  2. Yeah, another great giveaway and its international as well. Good luck everyone.

    I think the luckiest thing that ever happened to me was on having my accident (probably the unluckiest thing to happen) the doctors managed to save my leg when amputation was a real possibility.

  3. I already have Hatchet so I don't want to take that away from somebody just in case but nevertheless thanks for the option (:

  4. Happy St. Paddy's Day! It should be a school holiday!

  5. The luckiest thing that ever happened to me was finding my current husband. As a single mother of five children, the prospect of having any kind of relationship, let alone finding a soulmate was pretty slim. The day he walked into my life the light of a new day dawned in mine and my children's lives.

  6. Thank you for the great giveaway!! I'd have a hard time choosing just one lucky thing - I'm feeling very blessed these days ;)

  7. What a fabulous giveaway! I've never really appreciated St. Paddy's Day, but giveaways make it much better! Good luck to all the entrants! :-)

  8. The luckiest thing that ever happened to me - I can't pick just one thing! Meeting lots of new authors and bloggers!

  9. Great giveaway! The luckiest thing to ever happen to me would have to be meeting my wife. I was bar-tending as a 2nd job and knew it wasn't for me, but she worked in the office and there you have it, that's how we met :)

  10. GFC as Amber Hsu~ Luckiest thing to have happened to me would probably be finding my favorite author~~~

  11. I follow via GFC as Jennifer Johansen. Luckiest thing that ever happened to me was winning a car.

  12. Luckiest thing that ever happened to me was meeting my husband. :)

  13. The luckiest thing that's happen to me? I don't usually have a lot of luck but lately I've won a lot of books and gift cards from these blog hops that I do. So I guess my luck has been changing around for the better:)
    Thank you so much for a chance to win and for being a part of this fun and awesome blog hop!!

  14. Just tweeted this. Have a fun giveaway! (I'm a bit embarrassed about the postage to Singapore, so I'll skip the giveaways for a while. :))

  15. The luckiest thing that has ever happened to me? That's a good question. I would say finding the job I have now. It just so happened that they were cutting back my part-time hours at another library job, and then my dad just happened to see an ad about the place I work for now looking for a full-time library assistant. I applied, got an interview, and then got the job. It was a stroke of luck to get this job at the time I did.

  16. GFC- Caroline
    The luckiest thing?
    Probably getting the chance to go to college and further my education!

  17. Is there really such a thing as luck? If there is then it would have to be being born.

  18. Hmm, luckiest thing? Today, finding a parking spot at costco :) Okay, no, really, luckiest thing was getting to travel last year!

  19. GFC follower: Kristia Miltiadou
    The luckiest thing that happened to me is when I won my favorite book at a blog hop :)
