It's Monday 11/2! What Are You Reading?

Hope everyone had a great Halloween weekend! We had a lot of fun, as you can see. Jamie, my 15-year old son, came up with the great idea of dressing up as the Where's Waldo? characters (that's me as Wenda), while Craig, 11, did an excellent impression of an old man!

Not a lot of time for reading last week with soccer, Halloween, and the last week of the marking period, but we each managed to read a little:

  • Jamie is still reading Brisingr by Christopher Paolini, the third book of the Eragon trilogy. It's one of his favorite series ever, and he's really enjoying it.
  • Craig finished Half Magic by Edward Eager (a classic!) and is starting The Search for Snout, book 3 in the Alien series by Bruce Coville, one of Craig's favorite authors.
  • My husband Ken finished Inkspell by Cornelia Funke. He said it was very good; Jamie tells us that book 3 is even better!
  • I finished the audio version of Hush, Hush, a paranormal teen book by Becca Fitzpatrick. I enjoyed it very much and will post a review here.
Also to come this week, look for a review of The Mystery of the Third Lucretia by Susan Runholdt. I got a little behind in reviews while I was sick, but I hope to catch up this week.

So, what are YOU reading this week?

Great costumes!
I want to read Hush, Hush and one day I'll get around to Inkspell. Glad to hear they are both good.

I really enjoyed the Eragon trilogy also -- I think my daughter will like it as well when she's a bit older -- she loves dragons!

I don't know if Jamie realizes, but it's not a triology anymore. It's suppose to have a 4th book, but I haven't heard when it will be coming out.
Still I have enjoyed the series so far.

I absolutely LOVED Half Magic and the other books by that author when I was young.
