My bookshelf

The Magician (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel) by Michael Scott– What I’m currently reading
The Magician (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel) by Michael Scott, the sequel to The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel. The pace of the first book was a little slow in the beginning because it took time to introduce all the characters. This second book picks right up where the first one let off and doesn’t stop. I still have about 50 pages to go and it’s a nailbiter (as if I needed another reason to bite my nails).

– What I recently finished reading
The Innocent by Harlan Coben. A really good book, with lots of characters that don’t seem connected in the beginning but Coben does a great job at tying things up nicely all the way to the very last chapter.

– What I think I’ll read next
Harlan Coben’s Tell No One, along with the French movie adaptation, are waiting for me at the library and I can’t wait to read it!

My kids’ bookshelfMinnie & Moo and the musk of Zorro

What they’re currently reading
Lots of Minnie & Moo books by Denys Cazet! These two cows are hilarious and some of our favorite adventures are:
Minnie and Moo: The Case of the Missing Jelly Donut (the donut ends up not missing, but rather stuck on Minnie’s bottom as she sat on it)
Minnie and Moo Go to Paris (and also to Africa and China…)
Minnie and Moo and the Musk of Zorro (Zip! Zap! Zip!)

What they recently finished reading
Two greedy bears (adapted from a Hungarian folk tale) by Mirra Ginsburg. A clever fox teaches two brother bears a lesson about greed. A great lesson for kids who always want “the bigger piece”.
Mouse Soup by Arnold Lobel. A clever mouse convinces a weasel he needs to gather specific ingredients from several stories to make a tasty mouse soup.
Hedgehug : a Sharp Lesson in Love by Dan Pinto. Hedgehug would like to find someone to love on Valentine’s Day but all the animals are too scared of his prickly coat to hug him. Will Hedhug find true love? A very cute story, Valentine’s Day or not.

– What I think they’ll read next
I’m actually not sure but the element of surprise is part of the fun of reading.

What about you? Any books you or your kids are reading you’d like to share?

WWW Wednesdays – February 8, 2012

WWW Wednesdays

I’m still having a hard time to find enough time to myself to read as much as I’d like to, but with my husband finally starting all-day rehab this week, we’re settling down in a new routine and the boys have been reading a lot of books every day so I can’t complain.

My bookshelf

The innocent by Harlan Coben– What I’m currently reading
I’m about to finish The Innocent by Harlan Coben, a murder mystery I have to read for my February book club meeting. I’d never read anything by Coben until now but I understand he’s quite famous and prolific in this genre. Although I’m not done with the book yet, I really like it so far. I was concerned about the many characters and how they would all come together since they seemed so disconnected, but Coben is tying things up nicely and I like how he takes time to develop each character. And of course there is a lot of suspense, murders and twists. I definitely want to read more of him and I think I’ll start with Tell No One, which was made into a French movie a couple of years ago.

– What I recently finished reading
Nothing new since I’m finishing up The Innocent this week. 

– What I think I’ll read next
The Magician (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel) by Michael Scott, the sequel to The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, which I enjoyed reading a few months ago.

My kids’ bookshelfWhat do people do all day by Richard Scarry

What they’re currently reading
My two kids start school 30 minutes apart every day, so after I drop off my five-year old, I go back to the car and read books with my three-year old, enjoying some nice, quiet reading time together. His favorite book to read in the car this past week has been Richard Scarry’s What Do People Do All Day.
We’re also enjoying the Cornelius P.Mud series, which we originally read probably two or three years ago:
Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready for Bed?
Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready for School?
Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready for Baby?

What they recently finished reading
We’ve enjoyed reading a couple of books by Doreen Cronin:
Diary of a Spider
Diary of a Worm
They’re not as funny as her Click, Clack, Moo book series where farm animals blackmail the farmer to get what they want, but we still like them.

– What I think they’ll read next
I’ve ordered some new books from the library but they’re a little slow to come in. Fortunately we still have plenty of unread books to keep us entertained until then.

What about you? Any books you or your kids are reading you’d like to share?
