Fun Fiction Friday - September 29, 2017

Fun Fiction Friday
September 29th, 2017

Welcome back to Fun Fiction Friday. 

In my Fun Fiction Friday I share the books the older girls and I are reading, and a short review of a Young Adult or Juvenile book I have finished, if applicable. I will also ask the girls to tell me something they would like to share about at least one of the books they are currently reading. 

These are the books I have waiting to be read. However, I needed a break and didn't read anything all week, after finishing United As One by Pittacus Lore, until today when I started The Uncloaked by J. Rodes.

These are the Novella compilations in the I Am Number Four series that I was able to get a hold of. Wish my library had more of them. 

I also found this series on display in the library, and was intrigued. I'll be getting to them soon.

I just started The Uncloaked by J. Rodes that I was offered a Kindle copy of for review. It caught my attention right away, so it shouldn't take me long to get through it.

The Uncloaked by J. Rodes is the first book in a young adult Christian dystopian trilogy. I have enjoyed other dystopian series in the past, and was intrigued by the fact that this one is a Christian book. Review to come. Soon I hope. Look for it here on Fun Fiction Friday.

 The children and I finished the Secret of the Hidden Scrolls books (books 1 and 2). You can find that review here.

We are currently reading All-of-a-Kind Family by Sydney Taylor and The Tanglewoods' Secret by Patricia St. John. All-of-a-Kind Family is a book that was listed in our My Father's World Creation to the Greeks Teacher Manual. We are learning about the Jewish feasts this year and this book includes several chapters in which the family celebrates the Jewish feasts. It is set in the early 1900's in NYC. The Tanglewoods Secret is another scheduled read aloud in our curriculum, however, it is not really connected to the lessons we are reading. So far the children and I are enjoying both of these books.

Tabitha is now reading The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis.

It's about a boy who runs away because he was going to be sold by his father. He meets a talking horse who brings him to Narnia. And on one night when they are riding they meet another talking horse and another rider which is a girl. 

Amelia is trying to make her way through Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

In this book Harry Potter goes to see the World Cup with the Weasley's, after seeing Dudley's tongue grow with Ton Tongue Toffee. When he gets to the campsite type thing where they find out that the reception type guy is a muggle. He said that someone tried to give him wizard money, but he didn't call it wizard money, he called it gold coins. 

Hannah is actually reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

We finished Imagine . . . The Great Flood by Matt Koceich. I posted my review last week.

I'm sharing over at:
