My daughter recently bought The Book Thief and asked me to proofread it first. I just have to say there is a lot of swearing (which I’m whiting out). Other than that it’s a good book so far even if it is narrated by Death. Different and a little eerie.
So what else has our family been reading?
My husband – The 4-Hour Chef: The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Any Skill & Living the Good Life by Timothy Ferriss. He didn’t read this word for word – it’s huge. He skimmed through it and will definitely go back for various things that are explained. My husband also owns The 4-Hour Body and The 4-Hour Workweek by the same author.
15-year-old daughter – Harvest of Gold by Tessa Afshar. This is a really good Christian novel set in Bible times. It is the second in a two-volume set. The first is Harvest of Rubies.
13-year-old son – The Assault by Brian Falkner. This is sci-fi. He won this book through our library’s reading club. It’s pretty interesting. Earth has been taken over by aliens. Several teenagers in the free world train to be able to take down the headquarters of Earth’s enemies. Not something I would want to read on a regular basis but as a once-a-year deal I enjoyed it.
11-year-old son – Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder
9-year-old daughter – Little Town on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder
8-year-old daughter – Peanuts – Who doesn’t love the Peanuts gang? My favourite is Snoopy.
6-year-old son – Curious George
2-year-old son – anything Peter Rabbit. He has recently “discovered” the Beatrix Potter books and loves them. I think he enjoys their size. They fit him so nicely and it’s easy to carry several at once. The Tale of Two Bad Mice was good for a few good giggles with a mouse named Hunca Munca.
