Review: A Peculiar School by J. Schlenker



A Peculiar School 

J. Schlenker (Goodreads Author)



Vicki Turner Goodwin‘s review

Feb 09, 2019


It was an amazing read. 


This is the most curious tale of animals written in their own voice that I have read. I enjoyed meeting Owen, Theodore, luce, and Ethel as well as all the other carefully woven characters. The writing is crisp and thought-provoking. With characters that range from earthy to genius, each is well examined by Schlenker.
J has a way of creating an entire world for her animals that is both real and fantastic. I wanted to know more about these guys. An excellent read with heart and intelligence.

Shame on Amazon for Messing up Goodreads Giveaways

Goodreads is tainted

Goodreads used to be a great tool for authors, but now that Amazon owns them not so much. The author now has to pay to run a giveaway which is unfair as they are already paying for the printed books as well as postage and shipping. This leaves Indie authors at a disadvantage.

Free no more

Living Near Fort Boonesborough

When I first relocated to Winchester Kentucky I had no clue that it was so close to the Richmond home of Daniel and Rebecca Boone.  I used to watch reruns of Daniel Boone with my Grandparents and loved that show.

Review Copies Available

I am looking for a handful of new reviews on my books. If you are interested in reading one or more of them, message me.

I’m looking for honest reviews in three different genre. If you have a little room on your reading list consider one of these five books.

Reviews can be on Amazon and Goodreads. Barnes and Noble reviews are appreciated too.

Thank you,
