Yes, I course I’ve been reading. There is a “book-a-day” challenge that I’ve been trying to complete. So far, so good…
I discovered The Space Taxi series by Wendy Mass and Michael Brawer. Did you know that there are actually aliens on Earth? The Intergalactic Security Force knows this and tries to keep it secret. You see, most Earthlings are quite ready to believe and understand so Archie Morningstar and his dad run a taxi service so aliens and come and go as needed. Things go quite smoothly, until a solar flare temporarily interferes with the equipment and signals needed for safe travel. What will happen to the Aliens on Earth? This is a fun series to “explore.”
What would you do if on the day you turned 10, you discovered you were a Wonder? What would you do if you realized just by saying your name, “Aleca Zamm,” you could stop time? Would you want that power or not? What are the pros and cons of being a Wonder rather than a Dud? The books in this series are written as one continuing story. The first two have been published. I hope that next are soon. Read Aleca Zamm is a Wonder and Aleca Zamm is Ahead of Her Time to discover how wonder-full (or not) special gifts can be.
If you’re looking for something a little more challenging and a lot more CREEPY, you should try Curse of the Boggin book 1 – The Library. There is something under Alec Swenor’s bed. He’s trying to say calm about it. After all, he’s nine. But something is there for sure. It left a scratched message “Surrender the Key” and that’s just the beginning of what happens if you’re connected to The Boggin. This is a terrifically scary tale – it’s creepy in all the right ways. It will leave you wondering – What if? What’s next? It’s over, but not really? How will the Boggin return?
I’ve added some other book suggestions to the shelf on the right. Check those out too! Happy Reading!
