Book Challenge-#38-#44

I am trying to get caught up on my book reviews-I went to the beach last week and read 7 books!!! I know-I’m patting myself on the back as I type this!! It was soooooo relaxing! 🙂 Got a tan, ate good food, read some great books, slept late, and spent quality time with my mom!

#38-The Cabin by Carla Neggers-I like this author-she writes suspense stories with a love twist to them. I enjoyed this book, but it seemed a little drawn out to me.


#39-The Face on the Milk Carton by Caroline B. Cooney-I loved this book and no, it’s not a typical beach read. It captures an event that can happen to anyone-believe me, tears were shed! And Caroline better be glad I had the companion book ready by my side when I finished this one-that’s all I’m gonna say! 🙂


#40-Whatever Happened to Janie? by Caroline B. Cooney-I loved this one as well and found out there is another companion book to these two-The Voice on the Radio-gotta put it on my list to read.


#41-Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli-I’ve been meaning to read this book all last year since I see it discussed on the web so much-I even recommended it last year to one of my reluctant readers(boy), and he LOVED it so I knew I had to read it. I was very satisfied.


#42-Who Ran my Underwear up the Flagpole? by Jerry Spinelli- I must love Jerry Spinelli-I’ve been buying his books like crazy lately! This was a funny read and will recommend it to ALL my 6th graders!


#43-Bunco Babes Tell All by Maria Geraci-I just had to buy this one since I loooooove playing bunco with my gals each month! I loved it-beware though, it’s a little explicit in places! 🙂


#44- The Wildwater Walking Club by Claire Cook- This was the BEST one of the week! It caught my eye when I bought it a couple of months ago because I really want to start walking-it will inspire you to walk even if you hadn’t thought about it! It is hilarious!!! I was laughing out loud!!!! This is one of those books that I might read again (and I don’t usually do that)! Definitely a beach read!!!!!!!!!!!
