We have exactly 14 sleeps till book week parade.
Above are the short listed faves for my darling eldest boy.
This 'short list' is my darling little Minnie's faves for book week.
And these two books above are Mum's short list that have
'mysteriously' gone missing for the few weeks before and during
the book week selection period. I don't feel slack at all in
not giving my boys the option to dress as Walter. I just couldn't
do it to their teachers.
Now we have our short lists, we go through them, discuss what we like most about the characters, read and reread them, and in this way eliminate all but one book.
We love book week.
I have a question for you, and will share my answer as well, tell me what books are on your favs short list?
I love anything by Bryce Courtenay and Enid Blyton,
Ben Elton cracks me up,
I also got right into Stephenie Meyers Twilight series, yes, I certainly did (however am neither Team Edward or Team Jacob fan - just loved the books)
We of the Never Never - Mrs Aeneas Gunn
The Saffron Kitchen - Yasmin Crowther
Then there is Angela's Ashes and 'Tis - Frank McCourt
and my most recent purchase are two books by Dr Catherine Hamlin, The Hospital by the River and Catherine's Gift, which I am yet to read.
Thanks for stopping by my place, I hope you are having fun today, and I can't wait to see your short list. I love being recommended a good read.
