It's Monday 3/1! What Are You Reading?

March 1st - finally! It's been a long, hard winter - I'm ready for spring! We had another busy week, including a whirlwind trip to Connecticut for my niece and nephew's birthdays after yet another snowstorm passed through the area.

It was a good reading week for all of us:
  • Jamie, age 15, finished Everwild by Neal Shusterman, the excellent sequel to Everlost. He loved it as much as I did, then passed it on to his Dad who is now reading it!
  • Jamie started Sharp North by Patrick Cave, a new teen thriller set in a future Great Britain where mysterious murders occur and the wealthy keep illegal clones of themselves, just in case...
  • Craig, 12, is still reading Nick of Time by Ted Bell, an exciting time travel pirate adventure.
  • I finished listening to Camilla by Madeleine L'Engle on audio, a coming-of-age teen classic by one of my favorite authors.
  • During our car trip, we all listened to the audio of another classic, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg. We're about 2/3 of the way through and finishing it at home - we're all enjoying it very much and have decided we need to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC!
Last week, I posted reviews of The Lightning Thief on audio by Rick Riordan and Spacer and Rat, a clever teen sci fi novel by Margaret Bechard.

What are you and your family reading this week?

I'm trying to finish Rampant by Wednesday.

I really need to read Everlost. I started it and then put it aside for some reason and never picked it back up.

Sounds like you've had a good week of reading. We're making our way through a Clone Wars junior novel with our 5 year old. I can't wait until he can read these books on his own!

Great week of reading for all. I loved Nick of Time and just read there is a sequel coming soon!

I have been wanting to read the Everlost series. I loved Unwind and figure I will like these too. Your family had a great week. Hope this one is even better.

Nise' - My son was excited to hear there's a sequel to Nick of Time coming - he can't wait!

Jan - My older son just started Unwind yesterday (he's home sick, so he's almost done) - he says it's excellent! My turn next!
