 A Tuesday Ten of Seeing Red at Views from the Tesseract

alibrarymama has a great list of her top sci books for 4th/5th graders from the last few years

And finally, my youngest is now 12; only one more year as the middle grade target audience!  Here he is with his favorite birthday present, a Cthulhu ski mask (he is also enjoying Hitchiker's Guide; and just for the book record, also got the third Menagerie book, Krakens and Lies, and the third book in Pier's Torday's series, The Wild Beyond):


  1. I did a review of Evil Spy School on by blog, here's the link: http://thebookworm-blog.blogspot.com/2015/05/complex-characters-actual-factual-spies.html

  2. As always, adding some more books to the TBR. Have a bit of time to prepare for the 48 Hour Book Challenge-- probably will be the weekend of 20 June!

    1. My calendar is wide open for June!

    2. Oh no, I'm going to be at a business conference that weekend!
