Good morning. I hope you had a great week. I had fun celebrating Banned Books Week last week. I posted several reviews of banned books throughout the week. On the weekend, I went to a local corn maze with my family. We had a great time going through their two mazes and finding all the stations hidden in the corn stalks! It's definitely starting to feel like fall!
Reviews and Blog Posts
Banned Books Week Review: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
Review: Accidents of Marriage by Randy Susan Meyers
Banned Books Week Review: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Banned Books Week Review: The Adventures of Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey
Banned Books Week Review: And Tango Makes Three by Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell
I finished reading Accidents of Marriage: A Novel by Randy Susan Meyers, a contemporary family drama. Now I'm about halfway through A Dangerous Fiction: A Mystery by Barbara Rogan.
I'm participating in the FrightFall Readathon this week. It's hosted by Michelle at Seasons of Reading. I plan to finish A Dangerous Fiction and then start another thriller ~ either This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash or The Killer Next Door by Alex Marwood. I'm thinking the latter sounds like the best choice for a scary read since Stephen King called it "Scary as hell."
C read Guys Read: Other Worlds last week. He really enjoyed it and it introduced him to several new authors. He also read Turn Left at the Cow by Lisa Bullard. He really liked that one too, which is good since it was a random pick from the library! M is still reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Book 1 by Jeff Kinney, and she's been reading lots of picture books for her reading homework.
What are you reading this week? It's Monday! is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too. You can also check out the younger version of It's Monday!
