It's Monday 1/11! What Are You Reading?

We read some great books this week!

  • I’m reading an excellent middle-grade novel, I Wanna Be Your Shoebox, by Cristina Garcia, about a thirteen year-old girl who is part Japanese, part Cuban, and part Russian Jew.
  • Jamie, 15, was sick this weekend, so he had a lot of reading time. He finished The Pilgrims of Rayne, book 8 in D.J. MacHale’s wonderful Pendragon series. He read all day long, closed the book, and asked, “Do we have book 9 yet?”
  • We do! Jamie immediately picked up book 9 in the Pendragon series, Raven’s Rise and is still engrossed in it. He and I agree that this series just gets better and better.
  • Craig – who turns 12 this week! – found his lost book and is rushing to finish both books before the end of the marking period. Both are Bruce Coville books, one of his favorite authors: Dark Whispers, book 3 in The Unicorn Chronicles, and Aliens Stole My Body, the fourth and final book of the Aliens series.

I posted a review of a magical tale of Norse mythology, the audio book Odd and the Frost Giants by award-winning author Neil Gaiman.

What great kids and teen books are YOU reading this week?
