Summer Slacking

Standard
Well… I’ve been slacking a bit this summer… not so much with reading, but definitely with writing. I’ve decided to give my writing a kick-start with my new WordPress blog.
I’ve put a pretty good dent in my summer reading take-out box, but have yet to write about anything.  So here’s a quick update on what I’ve tackled so far:
  • Wrapped by Jennifer Bradbury- Historical Fiction/Mystery.  Egyptology, Napoleon.  Grade 6 and up.
  • Seraphina by Rachel Hartman- Dragon Fantasy, Music, Families. First in a series. Grade 6 and up.
  • Fake Mustache by Tom Angleberger- Mystery/Humor, politics, friendship.  Begs to be read while wearing a fake mustache.  Great read aloud.  Grades 4 and up.
  • May B. by Caroline Rose Starr- Historical Fiction/ Novel in Prose.  Survival, learning disabilities, life on the prairie. Grade 5 and up.
  • Prairie Evers by Ellen Airgood- Realistic Fiction.  Family, friendship, chickens. Grades 5 and up.
  • Legend by Marie Lu- SciFi/Dystopia.  Survival, rivalry, epidemics.  First in a series.  Grades 6 and up.
  • This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel- SciFi/Horror. The apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein, alchemy.  A few gruesome scenes. Grades 6 and up.
  • The Enemy by Charlie Higson- SciFi/Horror.  Zombies, survival, rivalry.  First in a series.  A bit too violent for EHUE (Will not be at our library.) Grades 8 and up.
