Meanwhile, we've been enjoying some wonderful books at our house:
- Jamie, 15, is reading 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...
- He's also reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows for his British Literature class at school - I can't wait to get my hands on that one when he's finished!
- Craig, 12, finished Nick of Time by Ted Bell, which he said was his favorite book ever! He's started Hunting for Hidden Gold by Franklin W. Dixon, a Hardy Boys book - the equivalent of comfort food for Craig!
- I just finished Murder at Midnight by Avi, a suspenseful mystery set in Italy during the Renaissance. Believe it or not, this was the first Avi book I've ever read, though Jamie's been telling me what a good writer he is for years.
- My husband, Ken, is reading Icecore, a new teen thriller by Matt Whyman that both Jamie and I loved. You can read my review here.
- We finished listening to the audio of a classic, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg. We all really enjoyed it and have decided we need to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC!
- I've been listening to the audio of My One Hundred Adventures by Polly Horvath, a wonderful middle-grade novel about a 12-year old girl looking for adventure.
