Everlost by Neil Shusterman

Sooooooo. . .just read this novel yesterday – that’s right, I read it in one day! It was hard to put it down, but I can’t say it was one of my favorites – I definitely liked Unwind better! If I can read a book in a day, so can you! Let me know how your reading is coming along!

Suggestions please

Sooooooo, I just finished The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan (thanks Matticus) & had a hard time getting through the first 75% of the story – just wasn’t as interesting or as action packed as Percy Jackson or Lost Hero series’ – maybe b/c the ancient egyptian concepts were a little more difficult to understand. . .dunno. . .anyway, now I need a new novel to read. . .suggestions??

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

So, Ms Casabona stopped by and she just finished reading this piece of historical fiction – the whole story is narrated by ‘Death’ and it follows Liesel, a German girl living during the Holocaust. When she is brought to live with foster parents who struggle to make ends meet, Liesel tries to have a carefree childhood but faces many obstacles. Personally, I never thought I’d enjoy reading ANOTHER book on the Holocaust b/c I’ve read them all. . .BUT, this is a new take and an emotional rollercoaster (goosebumps)! Add it to my list of Must-read novels! xoxo Ms. C
