What We're Reading This Month

The Rook by Daniel O'Malley

A Touch of Stardust by Kate Alcott

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
(I feel like I'm the only person left who hasn't read this book! 
And I've had the advance for it for about a year, eeep)

Easy Love by Kristen Proby
I had to add in some less serious/literary reading. I have grown to really enjoy 
Kristen's romance books, her stories are a satisfying, fun, and sexy read. 
Easy Love is the first in a new series.

Prudence by Gail Carriger

Sam (age 8): Sam has hit a bit of a slump in her desire to read. I think she's either burnt out on reading so much, all the time or the call of the iPod and Minecraft is stronger than the written word. I'm not despairing (yet) over this, we all go through it from time to time, and she is keeping up with her required school reading. We are reading this book together, at bedtime.

 Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George

Madeline (age 4):

Aqualicious by Victoria Kann
(Maddy loves the Pinkalicious series)

Louise Loves Art by Kelly Light
