What are we reading? What are YOU reading?

I love book posts. I miss book posts. I miss books! Ha. It’s true, I haven’t picked up a book in forever. But that doesn’t mean the kids haven’t been flying through books lately. Gunnar always has to have a new book in hand, or else he goes to the garage and grabs an old standby that he’s read 500 million times. True story. 

Greta and Sawyer each are working on a book project for language arts, so there’s been a lot of reading happening in this household of late. 

Here’s a little rundown of what they’ve been enjoying:

Greta (8 yo/third grade)- She just finished this classic, and is working on a book sharing project for her class. For our read aloud at night, I’ve been reading this AG story. And this summer she read pretty much this entire series. And I just ordered this book on time travel from the author of the Ivy and Bean series. It’s kind of the next step up from that series, more of an 8-12 yo age group. 

Sawyer (10 yo/fifth grade)- He can’t put this one down at the moment. And for his big project he chose to do it on Six Days. It took a few chapters, but now he’s totally into the book and cannot wait to turn the page. I also just received this from his class book order, and I think he’s going to really like it. I also have my eye on this graphic novel series, it’s historical too.

Gunnar (12 yo/seventh grade)- He loved this book by Louis Sachar, and I can’t wait to read it myself. He told me I was going to love it, and he’s pretty spot on with his recommendations. Also, it’s from the author of Holes.  He’s almost finished with this one, and cannot put it down. And if your kid is into a little sci-fi, this series was a favorite of Gunnar’s. 

It’s kind of a second part time job to keep enough books in this house. But it’s one I’ll gladly fulfill. So tell me, what are your kids or yourself reading these days? I need to have a list at all times or else the kids get a little reangry (kind of like ‘hangry’ but more lacking in the book dept than the food dept).
