Book Reviews

I've really got the reading bug! I have lots and lots of books checked out from the library. I hope I can finish them all before they're due. Here is a new series called Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare that Chris and I started reading. Chris said it reminded him of Harry Potter, and he finished both these books (close to 1000 pages) in 5 days. It is definitely for an older group than Harry Potter, and I don't see much resemblence to the Harry Potter series (except that kids are the heros of the book, as they are in most kids books). There are demons, vampires, werewolves, and shadow hunters... great for the lovers of the fantasy genre.

More books that I have finished in the last couple months...

Oy, Joy by Lucy Frank

The Game by Diana Wynne Jones

Wow, Joni! You have been busy reading! I love to read too, but haven't been able to lately. I just pass out when my head hits the pillow. Would love to check out the vampire books though. They look very interesting!
