Book Update...

I'm sad to tell you that even with all of our traveling and beach lounging, I only read ONE book this entire month. It's pitiful!

I finished up a series I'd been working on with The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma. It's a kids' book but it's definitely on a reasonably-high reading level. They reminded me a lot of the Harry Potter series or the Wrinkle in Time series without the magic stuff. I enjoyed the books and would recommend them all! (Especially to some of my middle and high school big-time readers!)

In October I've got to buckle down because I have a LONG list since I didn't finish this month!

1. Wicked by Gregory Maguire
2. Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
3. Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mrtenson
4. Bound South by Susan Rebecca White
5. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls (a bookclub in town I've been invited to is reading this)
6. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
7. The Magicians by Lev Grossman
8. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

I know, I know...what am I THINKING? :) Hopefully I'll get SOME of them read!

Any thoughts on my list? Are you reading this month???

Our book club really enjoyed our discussion on the Glass Castle. If you have time (ha!) you might google Jeannette Walls and watch some of her interviews. Pretty amazing life story.

So many people liked Three Cups of Tea. I was not one of them. :(

Haven't read any Charlaine Harris is a while but really liked the ones I've read in the past.

The Time Traveler's Wife...on the fence with this one. We're reading another one of hers (Her Fearful Symmetry) soon.
