It’s Monday! What are you reading?

I can tell that I am getting into the vacation groove because I have lots of books to tell you about.

NERDS: National Espionage, Rescue, and Defense Society (NERDS, #1)I did finish N.E.R.D.S by Michael Buckley and, yes, the members of the team can save Earth from the evil villian – although not all the loose ends are tied up so there is more for them to do.  I loved the gadgets, the thinking and the way everything is not always what it seems.  Having a little mystery around is a good thing.  I can’t wait to read the rest of the books in the series.

I read Gone Fishing  – reviewed here.  It made me think of Naish and his interest in fishing and fly tying.  I read Hero on a Bicycle, – reviewed here and thought of Daniel and his interest in the millitary and WWII.  I think you’d both really like these books.

Rainforest RescueTrevor told me I would like Rainforest Rescue by Jan Burchett  and I did.  It is an exciting adventure about twins your age who are part of a secret group traveling the world to make sure wildlife preservation is successful.  This story takes place in Borneo and involves keeping the orangoutangs of the rainforest there safe and free.  I read two books from the Galaxy Zack series, Hello Nebulon and Journey to Juno.  In them Zack, a kid from Earth, moves to Nebulon and just like we might have to if we moved to a new town, Zack has to learn the ways of a new school and culture on a totally different planet.  Pretty early on he joins the Explorers Club, goes to Juno and makes a great discovery.  This is a fun, quick reading series.  The ideas are fun to imagine.Galaxy Zack: Hello, NebulonGalaxy Zack: Journey to Juno



I just started Hunter Moran Saves the Universe by Patricia Reilly Giff.

I’ll let you know what I think next week.  Right now I am not sure.  Hunter is a bit sneaky in a way that I’m not sure I care for.  He could pull it around.  I usually really like books by this author so I am going to keep reading.


Do you have any great book suggestions for us.  Make sure you leave them in your comments.  Happy reading!
