Fun Fiction Friday - July 20th, 2018

Fun Fiction Friday
November 20th, 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.

Tabitha is still reading a wide variety of books.

She is closer to finishing the Warriors: The New Prophecy series by Erin Hunter. She really enjoyed the original Warriors series. My oldest son read them years ago and also loved them. He was thrilled that she was reading them. She just finished Twilight and is working on Sunset.

Knowing how much she loves mysteries, I encouraged her to try out the original Nancy Drew series by Carolyn Keene that I read and loved as a kid. She finished book 1 and is ready to start book 2: The Hidden Staircase. I also took out A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle because I enjoyed it as a child and we just saw the movie at the library recently, so she was interested in it. However, it appears they have taken a back seat while she tries to finish the Warriors book, plus has gotten interested in The Keeper of the Lost Cities that I have been reading.

I had the following series recommended to me a while back and was thrilled to find it in our library system. Funnily enough, Tabitha's penpal had told her about them, and I hadn't realized it. I started the first one, Keeper of the Lost Cities, and couldn't put it down. I told her she HAD to read it. I zinged through the second book, Keeper of the Lost Cities: Exile and handed it to her last week. I then read the third book, Keeper of the Lost Cities: Everblaze after it became available through inter-library loan. I just started the fourth book, Keeper of the Lost Cities: Neverseen yesterday. The first three books were amazing, and I can't wait to see what happens next. If you like fantasy books, this series is one I highly recommend.

Amelia couldn't really get into the Warriors books, but for some reason has really been enjoying these Survivors books by Erin Hunter.

Though she sort of set them aside to read the Great Illustrated Classics version of The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum.

Plus she is taking her turn reading the Tales of Sasha books that Hannah took our from the library. Hannah has them all finished, and now Tabitha and Amelia are both reading them.

Hopefully next week I will have a chance to have the girls tell a little about the books they are reading.

As a family, we are still reading Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan, and the Kane Chronicles: The Serpent's Shadow, by the same author. These have been fun ways to learn a little about the mythology of the ancient Egyptians and Greeks. We are so close to being done with both of these books.
