This week's question:"What are you reading now and why are you reading it?"
I've just stopped a book half way through because it completely changed tone and I couldn't go any further with it, so I'm now about to start reading The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney, which I've really looked forward to. This one of my pre-orders from Amazon. I've seen some fabulous reviews for it, and the cover is luscious.
As a family we have other books we're reading also. Raising Dragons by Bryan Davis is one we've been reading with our eldest since before Christmas. With well over 300 pages it's the largest book we've attempted with him. We're alternating pages - he reads a page, we read a page. This seems to work well and the storyline has had him wanting to continue reading. He's also reading Gladiator by Simon Scarrow by himself and occasionally dipping into Horrible History books, which he adores.
Our youngest has been reading some Ben Elf books with us, which he's thoroughly enjoying as he watches this on tv.
Hubby's currently reading Time Riders - The Doomsday Code by Alex Scarrow (yes, Simon Scarrow, author of Gladiators which our son is reading, is his brother). This is one that's on my tbr pile which he's reading whilst I read others. He's just ordered the first in the series so it looks like he'll be reading all of the series :)
