Luke and Eva’s Current Reads

My poor children have been seriously neglected on the blog what with Luke starting “big”school and Eva going into P4 but they have been busy reading too!  Here are some of their most recent reads as well as some which are on the wishlist for Autumn.

Quite an eclectic mix from Eva, the Morpurgo and Anne Fine books are ones I have been reading to her at bedtime but fairies and occasionally mermaids are still very popular!  I particularly like The Angel of Nitshill Road and the subtle way it deals with bullying.

It’s her birthday in mid-October so I have already gathered a few surprise book gifts to  accompany the main present…of course this is all top secret at the moment!  As the new Wimpy Kid book isn’t out  until November it won’t be part of the birthday present but will certainly be pre-ordered.

Meanwhile Luke has been enjoying the latest Skulduggery Pleasant book, Death Bringer and is looking forward to the new Charlie Higson, The Fear.  I am kept busy researching suitable titles for him, thank goodness we have two excellent library branches nearby!   Below are some of his most recent, current and soon TBR books.

Oh and last but not least, a special mention for a very funny book which kept both of them entertained on holiday in Kildare,  The Donut Diaries of Dermot Milligan, “a British Diary of a Wimpy Kid” with tons of toilet humour.  It’s great when I can find a book they both like which strikes a happy medium between zombies and fairies! 

I love to hear what other folk’s children/grandchildren/younger siblings are reading so if you have any recommendations just shout! :-)

    I love that they are so into reading and quite a mix, reminds me of my tastes (in that they are so ranged)

    Thanks, Lainy, I think the eclectic tastes must be in the blood! ;-)
