Show Me 5 Saturday

This meme will give each blogger an opportunity to give a brief description of a book they have read or reviewed during the week.

It will work like this:
Each Saturday You will post the answer to these questions. The number indicates the number of answers you will provide.

1 Book you read and/or reviewed this week (you name 1 book)
2 Words that describe the book (2 descriptive words)
3 Settings where it took place or characters you met (name 3 places or characters in the novel)

4 Things you liked and/or disliked about it (4 likes or dislikes)
5 Stars or less for your rating?

After each of you complete the meme on your blog add a comment here and I will put a link on my post.
1 Book: Jake the Snake and the Stupid Time Out Chair by Shelly Nicholson

2 Words: (for) children, funny

3 Settings/characters:
Jake the Snake who is 5 3/4 yrs old, Johnny - Jake's older brother, Jake's mom

4 Likes/Dislike: 1. I liked that my kids enjoyed listening to the story and laughed with it 2. I liked the lesson it taught at the end 3. I don't usually allow my kids to say stupid so they were surprised by that word being there 4. I wish the pictures in the book were more colorful

5 Stars or less: 3.75 to 4 There is a second book in the series that we are reading now and it is very cute as well. I think this makes for a great little series that kids will enjoy.

I will be hosting a book blog tour for A Stinky Surprise for Jake the Snake on September 5th. Stop by for a guest post by author Shelly Nicholson. My review of both books will be posted this week.

Other Show Me 5 Saturday posts:


  1. I haven't done my SM5S yet...still trying to decide which book to do it on. I still need to read the book for the 5th so thanks for the reminder! :)

  2. Here's mine!

  3. Great idea, I just read about it at Kaye's blog, Penguin Perusals. I read several books a week but I cannot get them reviewed. This would help get one good one out there as that's all the information I ever give for a full review anyway. I'm definitely going to do this.

  4. My post is up:

  5. I posted my link at the wrong date, duh, i was reading your archives and got sidetracked. Anyway, mine is up.
