I have mentioned I have had a shortage of good books lately. So it usually helps to switch genres. Brittany was in a book drought too so I decided to investigate some children's Lit we both could enjoy. I thought I would share some that we have liked, okay Brittany liked, I haven't read them all yet. A new author we hadn't read before, Eva Ibbotson. Two are pictured here, we both really liked The Secret of Platform 13, Which Which is a newer one we were waiting for from the library. They are fantasy, reccomended for readers of Harry Potter, but I would have to say light fantasy with a sense of humor. She has quite a few books, which is always nice so Miss B won't run out for awhile. She really liked Framed by Frank Cottrell Boyce, the guy who wrote Millions. It is about a family who are art theives. She has read several by Blue Balliett. She has listened to and read Chasing Vermeer several times. This author has several books too.
We just discovered The Royal Diary series thanks to a gifted book from my friend Circe. They are historical fiction, diaries of young girls throughout history. Marie Antoinette, Cleopatra, Queen Elizabeth. The list goes on and on. So far I have found three authors who write these. Kathryn Lasky, Kristiana Gregory and Carolyn Meyer.
Just thought I would share, summer vacation is just around the corner and a steady supply of books are a must for Brittany's survival.
