Reading Update

So, it’s been a while since I’ve posted about what I’ve been reading. I’ve made it through a bunch of books in that time.

I’ve listened to two audiobooks: Jepp Who Defied the Stars by Katherine Marsh and Kill Me Softly¬†by Sara Cross. Jepp is a great book about a court dwarf who wants to know more about who he is and where he comes from, and in the meantime creates a new destiny for himself. We have this in the library (thanks to a donation from Mr. and Mrs. Nugent), so I’ll be recommending it to some of you in the fall.

I picked up Kill Me softly because it’s a nominee for Teens Top Ten and, because I’m on the committee, I volunteered to make a book trailer for it. The trailers have been put on hold, for now, so I don’t have one yet, but it was a fun book about a town where a group of kids live with fairy tale curses.

These count as my historical fiction and fantasy stories (I moved Marathon to my graphic novel block…I originally though Jepp¬†was going to be more fantasy, but it really wasn’t so I had to adjust).

I read one ebook, my mystery, In the Blood by Steve Robinson. It’s the first of a mystery series involving a genealogist. This was my book club’s pick for July. It was okay, but I didn’t love it.

As for paper books…I read a scary one and one that I loved in grade school. My scary book was 172 Hours on the Moon. It’s about a mission to the moon that includes three teenagers. What NASA didn’t tell anyone was that they suspect there’s something evil on the moon. I just know this one is going to be made into a movie.

My favorite from grade school was E. L. Konigsburg’s From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E Frankweiler. I loved this book about a brother and sister who decide to run away and hide out in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I still love it!

So, here’s what my Bingo card looks like now:

Camp ends this Friday and I took home a stack of books last night in anticipation of more reading time!

Hope you’re all enjoying yourselves!
