I Did Some Reading

During my absence (which I may or may explain in a little bit), I was able to read, read, read.

I had bought a number of books for Hanover (10) that she hadn't cracked open yet. Since I had been feeling very disconnected from her reading of late (she's so fast and devotes so much time to it that I don't have time to read all of the same things she does). So I decided to read some of those.

Here's the list: Fablehaven book 1 and 2 (OK--fantasy adventure with similar setting to Sisters Grimm without being nearly as funny), Griffin's Castle (theme was about belonging and involved a little too deeply disturbed main character), Bartimaeus Trilogy Book 1: the Amulet of Samarkand (clever dialogue, interesting story, and unique point of view), Twilight, and New Moon.

Funny, Ben said exactly the same thing about Fablehaven. Both kids really enjoyed it though.

I've almost given up keeping up with my kids. I just can't read everything they read, everything I need to read and everything I want to read.

The Sisters Grimm was so funny that even my husband would laugh out loud read it.

I have too much I want to do to read all of the books Hanover reads. I miss being able to talk to her about them.
