Friday reads have been on hiatus for a while since I had to read my RITA contest entry books. Now that those are done, I’m free! While I enjoyed the stories I read, it feels nice to be able to read whatever I want again. *happy reader sigh* So here’s my Friday Reads for this week:
1. Impact by Douglas Preston. I don’t know what it is about his books, but I just love them. Adventurous and interesting characters, complex stories with twists I don’t see coming. All good!
2. Paranormalcy by Kiertsen White. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and the start of a series. So far so good! Very paranormal but different. I’m definitely digging it.
We try to read with the kids every day. Sometimes they read out loud to us, sometimes we read to them, sometimes we take turns. It’s great and something that makes me so happy! I really love that we’re passing on a love for reading to our children. Our Family reads this week are:
1. Pete & Pickles by Berkeley Breathed. This story has so much heart I usually tear up at the end. It’s about love and friendship and sacrifice. It’s just awesome. And the illustrations are beautiful too!
2. Franny K Stein, Mad Scientist by Jim Benton. These books are so fun and creative and different. The kids are really having fun with these stories!
So, what are you reading this week?
