So, Thad and I don't really have a TV (well, a 9 inch screen tv/vcr combo that we "borrowed" from my mom) so we watch a lot of DVDs and read a lot at night. Here are some of my favorite books that have kept me flipping the pages this year (at home and in SSR at school!)...So if you have time and a library card (or a gift card at Borders, my fav place to buy books) read on!
Twilight/New Moon/Eclipse/ Breaking Dawn (to be released 8/2/08) - by Stephenie Meyer (and Twilight the movie is coming out this December!)
The Uglies/Pretties/Specials/Extras - By Scott Westerfeld
Stravaganza (3 book series) - By Mary Hoffman (they're releasing a fourth this year too!)
The Giver, Gathering Blue, Messenger - By Lois Lowry
Harry Potter (of course-not from this year, but Thad's reading them!) - By J.K. Rowling
Last year I also read all of the The Chronicles of Narnia
I'm trying to think of any more that I just love...but that should keep you busy for hours!
I just thought of one more series that I read, The Midnighters also by Scott Westerfeld, and I just started the Lord of the Rings (which Thad read--his first series I think?!) :)
A Great and Terrible Beauty , Rebel Angels and The Sweet Far Thing (The Gemma Doyle Trilogy)
Eragon/Eldest/Brisinger (The Inheritance Cycle) by Christopher Paolini
and The Pit Dragon Chronicles Dragon's Blood, Heart's Blood, and A Sending of Dragons by Jane Yolen
