Hey everyone! A little update: Nathan and I are now both in college and that's why I haven't been on very much lately. But it's almost Thanksgiving break, and I'm incredibly excited. A few new books just came out that I would like to mention and love to read (just wait till I get my hands on them!).
First off, a new Princess Academy came out in August. I am super excited to read it because it's been five years and I just love the characters. If you liked Princess Academy, then you'll probably want to check out Palace of Stone. And if you haven't, I highly recommend it. It's great for fantasy lovers/people who just love a good read. I can't wait to read the sequel.
Greg is back to writing in his eighth diary, and apparently he's still as wimpy as ever. I haven't read it yet, but Jeff Kinney has been consistently writing pretty funny, light hearted comic-like books following the middle-school adventures of Greg Heffley, a truly wimpy kid. The jokes are very goofy sometimes, but overall it's good for a laugh, and I would love to read it. Check out the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series in Realistic Fiction.
In this third installment of the Brotherband Chronicles, Hal and his crew must catch the pirate Zavac and complete their mission before it's too late. Catching the illustrous, murderous pirate is not going to be easy though, and will bringing him down be too much for the Herons to bear? Friendships are strengthened, battles are fought, and disaster narrowly avoided in this conclusion to the first Brotherband story arc. I loved the first and liked the second, and look forward to finishing the third Brotherband. Also check out John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice, which is a great series.
