Guts: The True Stories Behind Hatchet and the Brian Books by Gary Paulsen (library) After reading his memoir last month, I wanted to read more about Gary Paulsen.
Theodore Boone: The Scandal
Theodore Boone: The Fugitive by John Grisham (library) Grisham's young adult series of mysteries featuring a young man whose parents are lawyers, he wants to be a lawyer and he basically acts as a kid version of a lawyer for his friends. I have really enjoyed the series. The Fugitive was fun because they leave his small town and go to Washington, DC on a field trip.
Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig YA thriller about a missing girl (YA means Young Adult)
Finn Family Moomintroll by Tove Jansson the Moomins find a magical top hat. I am acquainting myself with these interesting children's books.
In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson rereading this one in anticipation of our trip to Australia later this year
Artemis by Andy Weir (library) I did not enjoy this one as much as The Martian. Once you get past all the technical living on the moon stuff, it is just a murder mystery crime novel.
The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Whohlleben (library) recommended by a friend. I learned a lot about trees.
Fall of Giants by Ken Follett (library) very epic story of WWI, lots of Downton Abbey-esque moments also. I really enjoyed it
The Mediterranean Caper by Clive Cussler (library) Ryan and I watched Sahara, the movie, the other day, which inspired me to read the Clive Cussler Dirk Pitt novels.
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green (library) Now I know everybody loves the Fault in Our Stars, but I was not a huge fan. It was okay, just another YA book in my opinion. Now this one, I liked a lot better. I thought Turtles was really good and it helped me to see mental health issues in a new way.
The Hidden Life of Animals by Peter Whohlleben (library) since I enjoyed Hidden Life of Trees, I thought I would try this one too! And I really enjoyed reading it
The Enchanted Places by Christopher Milne (library) After watching Goodbye, Christopher Robin, I decided I needed to read more about the life of Alan and Christopher Milne. loved it
Come on Shore and We Will Kill and Eat You All by Christina Thompson (library) a story of New Zealand. I loved it. Part History, Part Memoir. very enjoyable look at Australia, New Zealand and the Maori.
Stars over Sunset Boulevard by Susan Meissner (library) fun hollywood story, I really liked it and would recommend
Goodbye Christopher Robin by Ann Thwaite (library) This book is basically the movie tie-in.
