Friday 56 & Book Beginnings: The Rise of the Narcoleptic Turtles!!!!


These two link-ups are just made for each other!

If you’ve read here for a while, you know I fell in love with book 1 of the Dark Ferret’s Society by Emily Humphreys. You can read my review here. Today, I’m just starting on book 2–The Rise of the Narcoleptic Turtles! What’s not to love about the titles in this series? These books are appropriate for middle elementary and up.


Miss Van Buren raced down the long, Desert Academy hallway, her black heels clicking on the newly waxed floor. There was something terrible about being in the school building over the summer, but this meeting was important….

Page 56

It made her want to ink Doxen’s Diner on her canvas tennis shoes due to the complete newness of this Dark Ferret year.

You can read a longer excerpt from both books on author Emily Humphrey’s web page.


Or use these links to buy Book One and/or Book Two from Amazon. Remember, I do NOT make money off your clicks! The links are just a time-saver for you!

Please check back soon for my review of The Narcoleptic Turtles by Emily Humphreys.
