Book Reviews

Lately, I have been reading t'ween and teen books. The books I've read/reviewed over the past few months are:

The Spiderwick Chronicles has a movie based on the book series that will be coming out soon. I enjoyed all the books except The Spiderwick Chronicles. My 12 yr. old son enjoyed the series though, so he will probably go see the movie. I found the books to be too mean, and I would not suggest a parent let their kids read them until they have read one or two of the series first, and judge if they are somthing your child would enjoy/handle.

All the other books, I really enjoyed and would suggest without hesitation to parents. If I had to pick a favorite it would be DragonSpell.

I have a pile of adult books I am anxious to read - hopefully I can slip a few in and post a few adult reviews here next month!

Happy Reading!

I saw a preview for the Spiderwick Chronicles when Dh and I went to see National Treasure 2. There was something "off" about that trailer. I just didn't feel right about that movie.

Sometimes that spirit of discernment works overtime.

P.S. I have a new blog address. Just letting you know so you can update the blogroll. :)

I'm so behind on my "for fun" book reviews, too. I just started "Black" by Dekker though. I believe it was you who recommended it to me earlier. It's way different than any other books I've read before, but I'm really liking it.

Don't have much time for these sorts of books. My child is only eight, so we are still on the Ramona books....
