This week I went back to one of my favourite authors. When all other books fail to interest me his never do – Philip Oppenheim. This time I read The Great Secret. The girl started out on the “bad guy” side and I didn’t see how she could/would switch so the hero could have the girl he loved. Oppenheim’s stories are so much more than romance. There is always a romance but there is also spies and adventure. I don’t know why I enjoy these stories so much but I do. When my husband first gave me my Kindle I downloaded every title I could – 54 – all free.
I’m also in the middle of reading Opening My Heart by Tilda Shalof. She is a nurse who writes books about her experiences. This time though she’s a patient needing open-heart surgery. She has a great style that keeps you interested in a medical subject. I’ve read some of her other books and enjoyed them.
15-year-old daughter – My daughter and I went to the thrift store one night, and she scored 28 books! A lot of classics and also books she knew her siblings would want. It was a lot of fun. This week she read The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits and a Very Interesting Boy by Jeanne Birdsall
14-year-old son – Divergent by Veronica Roth
12-year-old son – Monster by Frank Peretti. My boys enjoy Peretti’s novels with their fantastic creatures and highly imaginative stories. This one is about sasquatch and very well done.
10-year-old daughter – Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh
8-year-old daughter – Ramona the Pest by Beverly Cleary
6-year-old son – The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit by Beatrix Potter
3-year-old son – Fabian Escapes by by Peter McCarty. The cat goes out and the dog stays in. BUT who has the most fun and gets into the most trouble?
