It's Monday 10/12! What Are You Reading?

Happy Columbus Day!

My 15-year old son, Jamie, was sick this weekend, so he read non-stop for days. Lots of great books this week:
  • I read The Mystery of the Third Lucretia by Susan Runholt, a suspenseful mystery about two girls who stumble upon an international art crime. I loved it and will post a review later this week.
  • Jamie read Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (he finally got his turn!), Sent, Book 2 of The Missing series, by Margaret Peterson (I'm next for that one), and Fablehaven: Grip of the Shadow Plague, Book 3 of the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull, one of Jamie's favorite fantasy series. Now, he's starting on The Time Quake, the third and final book of Linda Buckley-Archer's The Gideon Trilogy.
  • 11-year old Craig finished Bruce Coville's Song of the Wanderer and started Charlie Bone and the Shadow, book 7 in his favorite series by Jenny Nimmo. I hope to post Craig's summary of Song of the Wanderer later this week.
So, what are YOU reading this week?

(What Are You Reading Mondays was started by J. Kaye's Book Blog).

Sounds like a lot of great reading. I hope this week is as good (without the sickness).

Catching Fire was such a great read! I think it's great that you combine your families reading into your post -- I should try to do that more too although my two are still pretty young. Alex is just getting into chapter books :-)
