Remember when I posted about the Summer Reading Program? I finished it. 😀
Y’all I finished the library reading program!!! I actually finished it a few weeks ago, but this week we visited the library to collect our prizes. 🙂
After helping the little girls find a whole bunch of books in the childrens’ section, I went on a search for a few titles Kate had mentioned before I left… and ended up lugging a huge stack of interesting looking books back to the table Mom had staked out.
But we keep checking out waay more books than our library’s limit by accident, so I had to cut down my book stack until it looked like this…
Gossamer— I really meant to pick up Messanger, sequel to The Giver ( ❤ ) , but I might still try this one. 😉 The cover, you guys!!! It sparkles!
The Princess and Curdie— Slightly odd but definitely fun, I listened to the first book on audio and very much enjoyed it. Can’t wait to launch into this sequel! Hopefully it will live up to the first one. 😛
Spy Camp— This could turn out weird, but I’m excited to try it. 🙂 The second book in the series (idk why I can’t seem to start with the first ones in series…), this looks so funny and cool and epic.
My Brother’s Secret— Nazi youth, secret resistance groups, smuggling after curfew… YES PLEASE!!! By the same author as the one I just read and just as intriguing, this is probably what I’ll end up reading next. 😉
My Friend the Enemy— I just finished reading this! I honestly picked this up on a whim, walking past a shelf and seeing the cool spine. I included a mini-review lower down…
Next in the stack is an epic “Rogue One” book with timelines and everything (except it ends before the end, aka with everyone still alive), a neato spy book (I’ve always been slightly obsessed), two Bink & Gollie books (adorable!!!), and yet another spy book. XD
(I enjoyed ‘journaling’ as I read and even scrawled random quotes from literature in the margins. How many quotes do you recognize? ^^)
Y’all, I made a video for you. 😀 It’s probably way too long for a vlog? Idk, but it was fun to make and I hope you enjoy my silly attempt at a first-ever vlog. 😛
In this video I show you the prizes I received from the library, give mini-reviews of each book I read during the reading program, and briefly tell about My Friend the Enemy and what I thought. 🙂 Also, cameos of Paul and Kate included. 😉
Cringe count? jk Don’t tell me!!! I’ll try to do better if there’s a next time. 😀 (Big thanks to Kate for reading on the front porch so I could film this! And for not laughing out loud over my awkwardness.)
What books have you read so far this summer? Should I do more vlog type things? Do you ever journal about books? Till later! ~A
