Books I've Been Reading

Lately I've been reading a lot, and I thought I would share the books and what they're about and why I like them.

Homecoming by Cynthia Voigt ::
This book is about four kids whose mother abandons them in a mall parking lot on their way to their Aunt Cilla's house. The kids decide to go on, and their journey is full of hardships and adventure.
I like this book because the author writes it so realistically. You feel the same feelings as the kids, you see the same things as them, and it's great.

Dicey's Song by Cynthia Voigt ::
This book is a sequel to Homecoming, when the children find a home with their grandmother and start life in the town of Crisfield. They make friends and do new things, and it's also realistically written.

The Penderwicks on Gardam Street by Jeanne Birdsall ::
One of my most favorite books, this is a sequel to The Pendericks. It's about the girls as they try to find an extra-awful date for their daddy, so that he'll quit dating altogether. Funny and imaginative, it's extremely lifelike.

A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeline L'Engle
This is a sci-fi book, about time traveling and a special kind of communication called Kything. It's a very exceptional book, very enjoyable to read. It's part of the A Wrinkle In Time series.

Marie Antoinette, Princess of Versailles by Kathryn Lasky ::
This is a biography in the form of a diary. It really makes you understand the inner thoughts of the Queen before she was married and a little after.

I hope you enjoyed this list, and I hope you'll check out the books and come to love them, as I do. Over and out!
Hahaha! I love those.
