Ms. Ryan is reading five books right now…


Whew! It’s one of those seasons where there are WAY too many great books to read and WAY too little time. So I’m reading these five right now: Masterpiece because it’s supposed to be an awesome mystery (by the author of Shakespeare’s Secret); Candyfloss because at least fifteen girls (who all love realistic fiction) have recommended it to me; Dragon’s Keep because it’s on CD, so I can listen to this fantasy in my car; Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker because I need some non-fiction in honor of Abraham Lincoln’s coming birthday; and Broken Soup because it’s supposed to be the best, most tear-jerking teen novel ever (at least for right now). I’ll let you know how they all turn out…

    Yeah, I liked Dragon’s Keep. I don’t read that much fantasy, so I’m trying to educate myself. I can’t believe how gory some of the scenes were when the dragons were “cooking” and eating the people and when the witch was attacked by the crowd. In general, I thought it was pretty intense — lots of drama and evil people. Let me know if there are other “must read” fantasies.

    I read Shakespere’s Secret as a Nutmeg book in 5th grade two years ago and I loved it. I usually don’t like historical fiction or mystery but that book was really interesting! It was suspenseful, too.
