Summer Fun

It's time for summer reading! Let's choose a book and get started so we can discuss it in a week or two. What are some ideas for fun & frivolity? I usually read YA fiction in the summer, but nothing's coming to mind. Let's read something together! Now!

i'm in too! how about Flabbergasted by Ray Blackstock or The Yada Yada Sisterhood by Neta Jackson? i have read them both but LOVE them! and they are light summer fun reading. check them out on amazon. of course i'm up for anything. just some suggestions.

p.s. crystal is not bossy. just assertive!

I haven't read Yada Yada. Does anyone else want to read that one?

crystal said...

I'm liking being "assertive" instead of "bossy."

Next time my kids grouch at my bossy mom-ness, I'll say, "Hey! I'm being assertive!"

Have any of you read or like to read children's novels? The Fablehaven series is a fun easy read. I loved it. Also the Jan Karon books are great.

I've been hearing buzz about the Fable Haven Series. I don't know anything about them, but now want to read them so I'll be in the know.

SuperCoolMom said...

So Kay? If you haven't read Fablehaven yet, shall we go for it? It would be fun for everyone to read something new.

I'm going to check out Yada and Flabbergasted, too.

I'm all for the Fablehaven books! Max's teacher read the 1st book aloud in class & he LOVED IT. So that'd be fun to read the series along with him. Should we do the 1st book and see if we want to just zip through the entire series?

kay said...

i up for it!! i love discovering something new. and they have them at the library. i vote yes

SuperCoolMom said...

How about 2 weeks? Shall we chat about it on the 14th?

Holly said...

So what was the book you ended up picking out? I love to read.... let me know :)

I got book one of Fablehaven for $4.88 at Walmart and Book 2 in hardback for around $16.00. Loving it so far!

kay said...

did i miss the fablehaven chat or did it not happen.

i started the book yesterday and can not put it down!! and my hubby wants to read it next. oh and the 12 year old too. i think i have started a fablehaven trend at my house!

and how many of them are there? i want to make sure to get them all!

kay said...

my 12 year old and i just finished fighting over the fablehaven #3. he won. but he is almost finished so i get to read it next. boy those are great books! thanks for recommending them!

btw i have no idea about crystal. is there a baby yet? (i certainly hope so!) and what is it? can anyone help me out?
