Books, books and more about books

I just finished Inkdeath. I hated to see this trilogy end. (Inkheart, Inkspell and Inkdeath) I hope the author, Cornelia Funke, comes back with a fourth book. I doubt it but oh well. N went with my sister to see Inkheart at the movies. He liked it but said it wasn't as good as the book. I really like Brendan Frasier so I'm on the wall about whether I want to see it or not. I'm afraid I won't like it either. I'm of the school that the book is always better.

I'm finding that I really like a lot of the books I'm buying for the kids. We had the Scholastic book fair this week at school and got 4 books for the kids. Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw both by Jeff Kinney for J. N got Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver and Pendragon: The Never War by D. J. MacHale. Wolf Brother is the first in a 4 book series and I think Pendragon might be part of a series too but I'm not really sure.

I still have Eclipse and Breaking Dawn in the Twilight series to read but N won't give up Eclipse to me yet. He keeps reading Twilight over and over too. This is very unusal for him and while he's a reader he's just not usually this avid at all.


  1. Karen, my Jerry LOVES Whimpy kid books! And he's 14. LOL He reads it in a few hours and LOLs the whole time. I hope your kids enjoy them too.

  2. I just started a book called The Slow Moon. It got a good review from Jodi Picoult.

  3. Jessie and Nicky both finished the Wimpy books in a few hours too. They loved them. I'm going to have to look for more. I'll have to check out the Slow Moon Cyndy. Thanks for the heads up on it.
