Book Club Friday

This week my reading hasn't been too ambitious...I need some new book ideas, I guess I will need to hop around this link up and get some ideas. 

I bought this book for my kids a couple of months back and figured I should actually read it so when they ask I can tell them about it. It was a decent book, very obvious plot line, but still very interesting. I usually like Haddix's books, and this was no different. It was engaging enough that now I feel like I need to go get the rest of the series. 

I'm reading this aloud to my kids right now... not gonna lie, it's pretty sketchy... as in even my students were wondering what Carroll was on as he wrote this. I've never actually read it before, but it feels like a bad trip to me. I used to love the Disney version of the movie cause it was so quirky and odd... I had always just attributed it to Disney wanting to engage young children... now I see Carroll was just tripping, I mean seriously, you should hear the stuff  "Alice" says/thinks in this thing... its pure craziness. 

I started reading this one last night. No verdict yet, but I always love Grisham books so I'm betting it will be good. It will probably be on next week's book club when I can actually say something about it. 


  1. Great reads!! Thank you for linking up!!

    By the way, your puppy is adorable!

  2. hopping over from FTLOB! I LOVE reading hopefully I can get some new read ideas from you. I myself am a teacher (although not teaching due to my sons healh concerns). Have a great Sunday!

  3. Grisham's are always good - and I haven't yet read Alice mostly because the movies are crazy enough. :) ~ Courtney
