Sweet Summertime!

Hey Bookies!  Here's a summertime place to post what you're currently reading and what recommendations you might have.  No reason to stop talking about books just because we're not in school, right?

Hope you're all enjoying your second real day of summer-- even if it is rainy!

Here are some other books i remembered:

The Hobbit
Gregor the Overlander(I only read this one)
Harry Potter Series
Eragon Series
Time Travelers


Divya Bhat said...

Wow Dhruv! And like you said the how to train your dragon books are really good! Does any of you guys know if the 10th book has come out! I can't wait to read it!!!

Anyway, if we were to meet I think we should meet on a Saturday or Wednesday, cause I am usually free those days.

Keep reading people, and don't forget to check out the MORTAL INSTRUMENTS SERIES!!!! And yes, I am obsessed with that book!

Have a wonderful summer!!!!!

Divya Bhat said...

Oh I forgot to ask but is the Percy Jackson series really good? A lot of people are telling me to read it and I think I might.

Mrs. P said...

Have a great summer!!:)

Dhruv Patel said...

I just Started to read the MAGYK series. The first book is like about a 10 year old princess trying to be killed by the bad guys.

The first book is really amazing and I am reading the second book called FLYTE

Divya Bhat said...

I've always wanted to read that book! I'm currently reading a booked called The Locket. Its about a girl who makes a big mistake and wants a second chance. On her seventeenth birthday, she discovers a strange locket. When she puts it on she finds herself going back in time, making it possible to fix her big mistake. But as her life changes around her she realizes that second chances come with a price.

I'm still reading it and it's kind of a age 13+ book.

Anyway, how's your guys's summer going. Have you gone or are planning to go somewhere. I am probably going to go to Canada on the week of my birthday. My dad works there so he is planning on showing my family around.

Keep reading people and leave some recommendations for me!!!!

Have a great summer!!:)

Divya Bhat said...

I finished The Locket, and the ending is great!

I am going to start reading this book called Enchanted that I got from the Longmont Public Library.

Have a great summer!!:)

Divya Bhat said...

I'm really bored and there's nothing to do at home!

I finished a book a book called the Accidental Genius of Weasel High! It's an OK book.

We should all make lists of what books we read over the summer and share it when school starts!

And what about the meeting thing? Are we going to do it?

Have a great summer!!:)

Dhruv Patel said...

Mrs. P said...

Hey guys,
I haven't read any fantasy this summer just yet, but my fav book of last summer's reading was The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. You can read about it here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10626594-the-scorpio-races
I'm reading her newest book, The Raven Boys, for my book club class this summer!

Happy happy days, everyone,

Mrs. P

Divya Bhat said...

Hey are you guys free monday the 22cnd? I was thinking we could have the meeting then. I'll be in Canada the 8th-18th.

Anyway I just got the book The Mysterious Benidict Society and How to Train Your Dragon 10: How to seize a Dragons Jewel for my birthday!!!! I already finished the Dragon book and it's really good, but sometmes I think that the main character, is really stupid.

Also my Birthday is almost here and I only have to wait 7 more days. I'm so excited!!!

Have a great summer!!:)

Dhruv Patel said...

Any other recommendations for me before I go to Library, because, I am only planning on City Of Bones, and the Scorpio Races. So please recommend me dome other books for summer. Have a great summer.

Mrs. P said...

Hey Dhruv,
You can check out the Teacher Recommendations/Reviews pages that are linked to the library website. Those are the books your teachers that are in my book clubs have read over the last few years, and you get a star rating letting you know what they think! You should be able to get some good stuff recommendations there, for sure.
Gotta run!
:)
Mrs. P

Dhruv Patel said...

Summer is going great, got a lot of books. thanks Mrs. Pulley for the recommendation site you showed me.

P.S. No one really posted after July 2. What happened?

Divya Bhat said...

I'm in Canada so won't be able to post much.

Any other book recommendations for me? I like adventure/romance/mystery books! Anything in those categories!

Have a great summer!!:)

Dhruv Patel said...

Hello, I wont be able to post for a week, because I am going to Michigan to my cousin's house. SO here are some books.

I recently checked out the Artemis Foul Book, So I am going to start reading that book after I finish my recent title.

Divya!! Try some Rick Riordan Books. He has three amazing series.
Percy Jackson, The Kane Chronicles, and Heroes of Olympus(Companion to Percy Jackson.) Also Try Harry Potter.

See Ya, and Have a Great Summer.

Divya Bhat said...

Thanks Dhruv, I'll check those books out on my next visit to the library!

Divya Bhat said...

Schools almost here! When is are first meeting going to be?

Have a great rest of summer!!:)

Mrs. P said...

Good girl, Divya-- way to get on it early! Stay on me about it, too. What I need to do is announcements about new members for book club, get a sign-up sheet ready in the library, and schedule an initial meet-and-greet so we can see numbers and map out a plan for the year. Don't let me put it on the back burner!

Divya Bhat said...

Well anything you need me to do, ill help!

Have a great rest of summer!!:)

Dhruv Patel said...
