Don't Touch This Book by Bill Cotter Published by Jabberwocky, Sourcebooks on March 28, 2016 Source: Advance Reader Copy Buy at Amazon • Buy at Barnes & Noble • Goodreads Larry the lovable monster from Don't Push the Button! is back with another hilarious, interactive adventure! I know what you're thinking: this is a pretty cool-looking book. But... DON'T TOUCH THIS BOOK! (Don't even try it, bub.) Okay, okay. You can touch, but you can only use ONE finger. Whoa. How'd you do that? Larry is a loveable monster, but he has trouble sharing. It's up to you to show him how it's done! I grabbed this book from Sourcebooks for my 2 year old, and it’s a cute one! We had just bought Don’t Push the Button last week, and these books are really fun for the toddler age group. I know it’s not my usual genre, but every now and then I come across a fun book and want to share. 🙂 So in the same vein as Don’t Push the Button, this book is about not touching the pages…until you’re asked to touch the pages. It’s fun and colorful and my 2 year old had a grand ol’ time touching the tablet to “swirl” the colors. Basically the monster Larry tells you to touch the page and when you turn it, the page has turned purple,...Read More

I know we rarely review YA or MG here at Got Fiction? but with my kids getting older, I don’t really know what’s appropriate for them to read. I’ve taken a couple chances lately, and found some great books! Rose and the Lost Princess was one of them. My 9 year old daughter and I read this one together, so it’s only fair that we review it together. In fact, she has a blog of her own, and this review is posted there now. I’ll go first. I loved the storyline. For someone who doesn’t typically read YA, I found this book surprisingly good. Not only...Read More

Rating System Explanation
Five stars are like six-pack abs on a really tan, hunky guy not wearing much. They make us drool, we stroke them (the books, not the guys! - sometimes the guys...) and want to make sweet, sweet love to them. Five stars is the hottest, we mean, highest honor.
Four stars is a total hunkalicious of burning love, but maybe we didn't like his hair for some reason. We still think he's hot, and we're still going to recommend him, we mean, the book, to readers because it's a damn fine ass, we mean book.
Three stars = that awkward guy at the party. He's cute and you know he's cute, and if you look at him the right way, he even looks like Brad Pitt a little, but there are flaws. Surprisingly, he's good in bed (because you got drunk and shit happens).
Remember that - yeah we don't either.
One star is like expecting a somewhat attractive guy and being sent a Grumpy cat meme. We appreciate the effort, but no. This book was not for us. Grumpy cat might want to use it for litter though.
