The first picture book I read this year gives me a story about a little wolf in a red cloak travelling through the wood to visit his grandmother.
What does that remind you of?
The Little Red Wolf is a children’s picture book that’s inspired by Charles Perrault’s fairytale Little Red Riding Hood.
It was originally published in French but was translated to English by Jeremy Melloul. The English version was published in October 2017. (Goodreads)
I didn’t know what I was getting into when I borrowed this book from the library, but I was delighted by what I read. I became aware of the book through booktube so when I saw it at the library, I grabbed it.
The Little Red Wolf gives us a Little Red Riding Hood story with a twist — it’s from the perspective of a wolf. I don’t believe that’s a spoiler since you can deduce that much from the cover. It’s a sweet, charming tale about a little wolf travelling through the forest to his grandmother’s home to bring her some food since she has lost all her teeth and can no longer hunt.
I saw this fun little book tag over on Kristin Kraves Books and decided to do it too. Unfortunately I couldn’t find who created it.

I saw it over on Madame Writer and knew I HAD to do it because I’m here seriously wishing I either went to Mardi Gras or had FINALLY made it to Trinidad carnival. Instead I’m stuck at home. Cold. Bored.
The Mardi Gras Book Tag was created by booktuber Randomly Bookish Gina.

Book Tag Week continues with the Bookish Scenarios Book Tag, which was created by booktuber LindsayHeartsBooks.
You have to get rid of all your books and you can only keep one from each of these genres —contemporary, fantasy, nonfiction, and one other genre of your choosing. What books do you keep?
The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares
The beginning of a YA fantasy series about four friends who share a pair of jeans one summer that magically fits them all. These books are so sweet and I love how strong the friendship is between the girls.
Book Tag Week!! 😀
And now I present the Types of Memes Book Tag. It was created by Icebreaker694. I would have included pics of the memes, but that’s too much to do and I’m feeling lazy so just pretend I included them, yah!
A book you have negative feelings about
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Celaena Sardothien sucks. She’s not a great assassin at all! I’ve only read the first 2 books of this series and they were both average. Because of what the story promised – the protagonist being a badass assassin, – I was disappointed by it. The protagonist doesn’t reach that level.
Book Tag Week continues with the Sailor Moon Book Tag, which was created by booktuber Alexa Loves Books.
A book that makes you hungry
Delicious! by Ruth Reichl
A contemporary novel about a young woman who moves to New York City to work at a food magazine. I read this one last year and though I liked it at first, I was annoyed by the time it ended. The only thing I consistently loved was the food mentioned. I still would like to try making the cake the protagonist is great at baking. A recipe for it is included in the book.
