Blue Balliet's Books!


This WILL be my last post of the day! Nathan requested this one in which to discuss Chasing Vermeer and The Wright 3, two fast-paced art mysteries which sound similar to The Da Vinci Code (but less adult!). I really enjoyed Da Vinci, so I think I really need to read these! I am going to let Nathan (and others, if you're out there!) take over and tell you more about these books.

Chasing Vermier has been on my To Be Read list for a while, but it keeps getting pushed back as I find other books I want to read more. It didn't look particularly exciting or intriguing. Plus, it reminds me a lot of The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, and I re-read that pretty recently. I don't really want to read something too similar so soon. Am I wrong, though? Is is amazingly amazing, and completely different from anything else? Maybe I'll bump it up.

Chasing Vermeer--------------
First off Keep Reading Analie!!! Okay next there is a secret message hidden in the pictures it is cool. Plus once you kkep reading you get drawn into the book. You really feel the characters emotions.

The Wright Three-------------
So amusing. Stolen art Burried tresure and a mysterious past. this book had described a buitiful garden i liked that. Read it

Hidden pictures, huh? Sounds interesting. Maybe I'll bump it up on the To Be Read list. Though, I'm a little full at the moment, re-reading The Host for the hundredth time, re-reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy (LoTR movie marathon the other night. Made me want to read the books again.) and reading Half-Human, a collection of short stories edited by Bruce Coville. We'll see, though. Maybe I'll read it over the summer.

Whazzup analie!!!
okay, i have found the message, kinda lame message...
...but dont let that spoil the book.

The message is still fun to find

blue wolves and mushrooms said...

nathan,

wait! do you mean that one letter to the message is hidden on each picture, or there are seperate messages on each picture?

and 'whazzup?!', really nathan...
