Still a few more weeks...

There are still a few more weeks of summer, and if you haven't read a book yet, it is time to start getting serious. Here are a couple more that I have read that you might be interested in:

Just Grace: This book was hilarious. I loved how Grace tells the story, and hope to read more of this series in the future. It is short and very interesting, so it would be a quick read.

The Mother/Daughter Book Club: This book is longer, and much more geared toward girls, but I loved it. 4 moms and their daughters, all who are very different, meet once a month to discuss Little Women. The story is told from the views of all 4 girls, and is sweet, funny and sometimes sad. There is also a second book out, so if you like it, you can read more about the characters.

Hope your summer is going great!

The Best Book I've Read So Far

I just finished reading The Invention of Hugo Cabret. It was wonderful! The illustrations made me feel like I was watching one of those silent black and white films, and made the story even more enjoyable. Don't be concerned if it looks really thick--like I was at first. The illustrations take up many pages, and some of the pages only have writing right in the middle.

If you haven't chosen a book yet, you might want to look at this one! Happy reading.
