I am currently reading The Lions of Little Rock by Kristin Levine.

Michelle Isenhoff (michelleisenhoff) I'm writing one, does that count? ;) Just finished revisions for the second book in my Song of the Mountain trilogy. Hits Amazon April 1.
But I just finished reading The River Between Us, by Richard Peck. Excellent.

What did you think of that one? I didn't love it at first; it felt a little too predictable. But it has grown on me over time and now I am ready to re-read it.

I just finished "Pop" by Gordan Korman. Now I'm reading The Thief by Megan Whelan Turner. I really liked The False Prince, so I am hoping to like this one just as much.

It was predictable, but enjoyable all the same. My daughter and I read it together. It showed her a bit of history that she wasn't fully aware of. It was very eye opening for her.

John Briggs (johnbriggsbooks) | 4 comments I'm reading The Story of Cirrus Flux. I won it in a raffle but wanted to finish it before giving it to my tween. I'm a bigger fan of historical non-fiction than fiction, and unfortunately, this book reinforces that. I'm hoping my son enjoys it more.

Dawn Malone (dawnmalone) | 2 comments I've wanted to read The Night Gardener since I saw the gorgeous cover. I'm only through the first chapter, but the writing is just as lovely as the exterior.
