First Sunday Daughter Reviews: February 2018

It’s been a bit of a crazy day here; church this morning and then I dashed off to work for our 6th annual Book Club Sunday (the bookish answer to the Super Bowl!) then home to interact with the family… and it’s only now that I’m sitting down to think about what the kids read this past month.

C attempted 1984 for her APLit class, but decided it wasn’t for her, and is enjoying this much more:

She’s actually been super busy with a show, so we found an audiobook version of it that she’s quite enjoying.

Alison has moved on to another William Allen White book:

Not her usual fare (that’s the point), but she’s enjoying it.

And K is juggling between three books (it used to be four but she bailed on one because it got too kissy):

It seems we’re all Rick Riordan all the time now.

What are you reading?

First Sunday Daughter Reviews: January 2018

It was lovely having everyone here for Christmas, and (of course) we all got books.

M got these:

C got these:

E got these:

A got these:

And K got these:

She already had a copy of Sisters, so she traded out for this one, which hasn’t come in yet:

 

 

First Sunday Daughter Reviews: December 2017

The semester is winding down, and the girls are working more on school work than reading. But they’re out of school starting the 15th, so maybe they’ll read then? We can only hope.

Over the break, C is required to read a book (any book) she hasn’t before. I sat and chatted with her and recommended these:

I’m curious to see what she’ll pick.

A is still working her way through Lockwood and Co and is almost done with this one:

And, of course, she loves it. Who doesn’t love Lockwood?

So, we went to see Thor: Ragnarok over Thanksgiving, and before that was the trailer for Ready Player One and K was super intrigued by it. And when I told her it was a book, she wanted to read it. So, she picked up this:

I’m definitely curious to see what she thinks. (So far: Wade is really sweary.)

First Sunday Daughter Reviews: November 2017

I know it’s the second Sunday, but I was flying home from KidlitCon last Sunday, and arrived home to a house full of sick people. Which was fun. But we’re all better now, and still reading.

C is reading Invisible Man for school, but picked this up (again) for fun:

A is supposed to be reading this for school

but as much as she loves Fablehaven, she DOESN’T like this series. She hasn’t had a single good thing to say about it. In fact, she’d much rather be reading Lockwood & Co instead. (I don’t blame her.)

And K, after watching a video from Overly Sarcastic Productions, she checked this out from the library:

and started it. It’s ambitious, but she’s enjoying it so far!

First Sunday Daughter Reviews: October 2017

Last night was the Rick Riordan event here in Wichita. I worked

But everyone else came to enjoy “Uncle” Rick’s presentation:

It was a lot of fun!

But it also means that half of them are reading this right now:

K has gone down the Rick Riordan wormhole, too, working her way through Heroes of Olympus. She’s currently reading this one:

She has issues with the story (most particularly, Nico’s age), but she’s liking them.

(Not Quite) First Sunday Daughter Reviews: September 2017

First off, tomorrow is the deadline to apply to be a Cybils judge. You want to do this! Seriously. You do. It’s fun, you

She’smeet fantastic people, and you help do something that you can be really proud of. ¬†Follow the link and fill out the application. It’s easy!

School’s back in full swing and while we’re busy, it’s not nearly the level of crazy as last year (yet). So everyone has time to read.

C has picked up this for the first section in her APLit class

She’s liking it so far. What she really likes is that the cover doesn’t have a picture of a constipated woman on it.

A is required to read a William Allen White book and she picked this one

I told her it’s weird, but she’s still game.

And K discovered these graphic novels


She really likes the characters and the stories, which deal with friendship and bullying and finding your place in middle school, really resonate with her right now.

First Sunday Daughter Reviews: July 2017

We’re halfway through summer now, and the girls are busy being lazy and going swimming and working. But they’re still finding time to read. (Which is almost more than I can say for myself…)

C has moved on from reading about how to read literature to reading this:

She hates taking notes on it (she hates taking notes on books, period.), and she has Opinions which she’s not “allowed” to include (she is anyway). I think she’s enjoying it. She’s definitely thinking about it as she reads.

A has moved on to this

She’s really enjoying it. It’s made her cry a LOT and has enjoyed the plot reveals, and is finding it a really intriguing story so far.

And K nabbed this when I brought an advance copy home

She loved it! And is dying for me to read it, just so she has someone to talk to about it.

That’s what we’re reading right now. What are you reading?
