Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

This book promises to be an interesting read. The cover art is attractive and I can't wait to travel along with Minli on her magical journey.

The Mysterious Benedict Society

I can't wait to read this one. Written by Trenton Lee Stewart, it promises to engage readers from the first page to the last!

Red Kayak

This book, by Priscilla Cummings, was a great read. The story is truly intense and even had me questioning what I might do in that situation. I am interested in finding out what you thought of this book.

I Am A Star

This is a short book about a girl who was hidden by strangers through the Holocaust, and lived to tell her own story. If you have any thoughts or comments about this book, please post them here.

On the Wings of Heroes

On the Wings of Heroes is a great book, written by Richard Peck. I truly enjoyed reading this book. As you read the book, if you encounter things you don't understand, things you think are particularly interesting, or just have a comment you would like to share, I would love to hear from you.

Hi Jenny,

I'm loving the reading blog :)  I'm kind of all over the place when it comes to novels and favorite authors.  My new favorites are the Stieg Larsson books "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" and "The Girl Who Played with Fire"  Amazing....   About a month ago I started the series "A Series of Unfortunate Events" in my class of fourth graders, and they are hooked!  They are fun books to read and the kids love them.
Hey Jenny, sorry it has taken me so long to view your blog...I have been trying to figure this out. I think I am catching on. Keep up the good work!
