Today the Boys and I are linking up to a meme hosted by Shelia at Book Journey as well as Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts. It's called: It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Check out both of their blogs for many, many, more wonderful book recommendations and links to others who are doing the same.
In case you missed last week's post, here is our Summer Schedule:
Today has been an especially fun Make-It Monday, because the Boys had their first day of music camp. They have been making Rock & Roll! Here are the Boys' audioboos that explain it all:
Our rating system as penned by P.J.:
Lately I have been reading the Lord of the Rings series by J.R.R. Tolkien. I already read the first book so now I am reading the second, The Two Towers. So far, Gimli, Aragorn, and Legolas are searching for Pippin and Merry because after a battle, they lost the two Hobbits. So now they are searching for them, but they fear they might be dead.
Hey this is P.J. and I have read the books Maximum Security and The Killing by Robert Muchamore in literally two days. I read both of these books in a day because those are the kinds of books that you can't put down. The books are about John Adams who, after his mother dies, goes into a top secret branch of the British Secret Service called CHERUB. CHERUB uses kids to infiltrate and take down criminal organizations, but there is one thing, all of the agents are under 17. These books are the third and fourth in the series and if you are interested I would definitely start at number one called The Recruit by Robert Muchamore. This has been P.J. with you reading update, and I hope you read this series.
Mom has finished reading The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen, which is a lovely summer read set in the fictional beach town of Colby.
Next, I am reading Hide and Seek by the wonderful Kate Messer. Today also begins Teachers Write!, a virtual summer writing camp for educators, which is hosted by Kate, Gae Polisner (author of The Pull of Gravity), Jo Knowles, and Jen Vincent (Teach Mentor Texts). Check out my other blog- http://createwriteteach.blogspot.com/ which I began during last summer's Teachers Write! adventure, and follow me as I play around with fiction over the summer.
