This is a scheduled post this week, as I am off to the UK for the very anticipated wedding of my very good friend. I have no idea what I am really reading at the moment. But I will be alone on my flights and various train trips around the country, and I have loaded 44 new books on to my Kindle. I am going to gorge myself on the written word.
The book I am most excited to read is Seconds Away, the second Mickey Bolitar book. It's written by Harlan Coben, and it's a young adult spinoff of his Myron Bolitar mysteries. I love Myron and his friend Win, and I really enjoyed the first Mickey Bolitar book, so I hope this is as good. Harlan Coben is great at drawing the lovable goof, and interesting side characters, like Ema and Spoon in these stories.
Since I am away from my kids I recorded a video of me reading a couple of books for them to play on Daddy's phone. One of these is their favourite Halloween book, Corduroy's Best Halloween Ever. My kids love Corduroy, just like I did, although they like the sequels and I prefer the original.
What are you reading this Halloween? Have a spooky day!
Hope you enjoy the wedding, and the feast of books.ReplyDelete
No spooky reading for me, just NaNoWriMo prep. Xander is obsessed with 'Perky The Pukeko' by Michelle Osment. The book is about a New Zealand swamp hen finding its place in the world. Xander rarely manages to sit through the whole story, but he keeps pulling it out and bringing it over.
I've just ordered the latest Barbara Kingsolver book, so I'm really looking forward to reading an adult book for a change! But in kid lit, I'm reading Maddy West and the Tongue Taker by Brian Falkner. Middlegrade. Very likeable heroine.ReplyDelete
I hope you have time for 44 books!
