We were driving home from vacation last week (yay for vacations!), which is why this is a week late. In fact, most of the girls will be gone this week at camps, so “summer” (as in: trips to the pool, watching too much TV, and being bored) doesn’t really start in earnest until next week. Even so, the girls are reading.
C has decided to get a jump on summer homework and is reading this:
She wasn’t looking forward to it (thought it would be dry and boring), but is finding that it’s actually quite fascinating. It’s nice when summer reading isn’t a drag.
E picked up this, which I had tossed her way a while back:
And basically confirmed what I already knew: Patrick Ness is an amazing writer and can’t write a bad book. (I really ought to make the time to read this!)
A is working her way through this:
Which she says is not as good as Raven Cycles (duh), but is fascinating and she’s interested enough to keep going, even though the horses are hard to keep straight.
And K decided she missed reading with her dad, and so asked him to read this aloud:
They say it’s a lot of fun.
So, that’s what they’re reading (for now). Here’s hoping they’ll keep it up all summer!
