Summer Reading Assignments

by KATE FALL on JUNE 12, 2010

Hey! It’s quiz time for my daughter and her friend, which is what they get for sitting around my den on Saturday instead of doing something productive. I have two 11-year-old girls here. What do they plan to read this summer?

M: Plans to re-read the Warriors books by Erin Hunter and is looking forward to the newest Warrior release; wants to read the fifth Percy Jackson book; wants to read more Madeline L’Engle and more of the Sisters Grimm series.

K: Twilight by Stephanie Meyer; wants to finally read the 13th book of Series of Unfortunate Events; wants to start the Warrior series.

Series are definitely the winner here! I haven’t had the courage to delve into Warriors myself, but the other books are great choices.

Those all sound like good choices. I hadn’t heard about Sisters Grimm so I’ll be checking those books out.

A series I recently discovered and could not put down is the Tales of Terror series by UK author Chris Priestley.

Thanks, Janet, I’ll look for that one!

Interesting! I like series myself. I had a hard time getting into the Warrior series. Maybe it’s the animals? I did like the Twilight books but I have to say it wasn’t until half way through Twilight that I was interested. I almost didn’t finish the book but I decided I had to read it since it’s such a success in the YA market. I’m glad that I did because I learned a lot about what made that book so successful.
