Our Vacation Books - One Really Great Kid's Book!

August 14th, 2014 at 05:32 pm

We brought several books with us on vacation... I think I read three books during those two weeks (they were all on my phone from our library's e-lending service, so easy to carry!). My favorite was the Silkworm (JK Rowling writing as Robert Galbraith; it's a mystery and the second in a series of books). I also read The Silver Linings Playbook which I didn't like very much. And a great book called The Boy Kings of Texas (Domingo Martinez); it totally captured growing up in a border town in Texas. There's a southwestern thing I can relate to.

F brought The Mysterious Benedict Society (Trenton Lee Stuart) which she declared "the best book EVER" so if you're looking for a book for a kid around 9 years old, you might check this out... I started the first few pages and now I want to read it! It was lent to F by next year's teacher, and when we were up at school the other day (it doesn't start until next Weds.), F ran into the librarian who assured her that the library has all of the books in the series, and if they don't have the new one yet, she'll make sure they get it asap! (I love that librarian).

Have you been reading anything that you like and would recommend? We're always looking for books to read!

    The Mysterious Benedict Society has been my daughter (15 years old now) favorite book ever, and I believe there were two or three. And there is another one that is a prequel that I read last summer. Totally agree with daughter!

    Thanks for the book recommendations! I don't mind reading young adult books - sometimes they are 100 times better than adult ones!

    Thanks for the recommendations!

    We have been listening to the "How to Train Your Dragon" books (have been on some road trips lately). Those are really cute.

    PS - I am loving the Mysterious Benedict society and I am 47 so I am with you, Househopeful!
