Two titles jump the queue

Katie got her summer reading list for 8th grade this week, and happily, two of the three books are on our top-100 list!  Actually, two out of the three “extra credit” books are on our list, but only one can count for school.  (Which, of course, doesn’t keep us from reading it.)

So now our next five books will be the previously scheduled:

  • Swallows and Amazons
  • The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
  • Holes

Followed by:

  • Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry
  • The Witch of Blackbird Pond

Johnny Tremain is also on the list for extra credit, but I remember enjoying Witch when I was in middle school, so we’ll go with that one.  She also has to read The Bronze Bow, but will get no blogging credit for that one 🙂

Or maybe we should have her share her experience anyway, to weigh the merits of that book over the rest on the list.  Anybody out there read The Bronze Bow?  It’s a new one for me.

  1. I showed my son your blog yesterday. Katie’s review of They Graveyard Book got him itching to read it but when he saw you’d be reviewing Holes soon and he realized I’d just brought it home from the library (along with a pile of others) he started it right away. Unfortunately he hasn’t read any of the six you’ve reviewed so far and we haven’t gotten those in yet. But he loves it and we had fun reading the reviews together. He is stoked about commenting once he’s read the same ones you and Katie have.
