Weekly Update (8/11/14): What I’m Reading Now

Uncategorized

I got back from a trip to Wisconsin to visit the in-laws.  We had a lovely time fishing, swimming, and playing with the cousins.  Now it’s back to swim lessons and the humidity of August in North Carolina.  I’ve already squished several bugs that were larger than any bug should have the right to be.

What I read during the last three weeks:

Crown of Midnight and Heir of Fire were really good, but also very violent.  I’ll have their reviews up soon.  Here is Where is by far my favorite book out of the bunch.  It was so interesting and I want to read it again.  At Your Service was very cute, as was The Geography of You and Me.  Second Star was SO good.  I want to read that one again too. Sticky Fingers and The Green Teen Cookbook were both good non-fiction books for kids and teens.

What I’m currently reading:

I loved Itch, and Itch Rocks is turning out to be just as good, if not better than the first book.  Janitors is a series that I have had on my TBR list for years and am finally getting around to reading.  I have the first three books in the series, and so far, the first book is proving to be a lot of fun.

What I plan to read next:

I’m really looking forward to reading all of these books, but I must admit that I might need to sneak a grown up book or two in there somewhere.  I love kid’s books, but sometimes I want to read something more on my level too.  I’ve been reading more non-fiction in my spare time lately, so maybe I’ll try to pick up The Worst Hard Time again and see if I can get it finished.  I’m also thinking about reading a book for entrepreneurs. We’ll see what I have time for.

    I read and reviewed Janitors 1 last year. I enjoyed it, so I'll be interested to see what you think. The first thing that drew me to the books were the cool covers.
