two books:a witchy wife and fablehaven

for Christmas this year, my parents surprised me with two books. well, really a book and a book series. i opened this one first:

and thought oh boy. mom and dad...are you trying to tell me something?

ha ha. i am actually on the last chapter of this one. i began reading it in January, and stopped all of a sudden to work on other projects. it constantly sits on my counter and isn't even long, so i don't know why i haven't finished it. it's one that i think all women-married or not-should read. just to get a feel for motherhood and life. Linda(the author) gives so many hilarious laugh-so-hard-tears-come examples and that's what i love the best. there have been numerous times that i would sneak off to bed just to read one more chapter, and the hubs would pop his head in when he heard me laughing uncontrollably. but examples i can relate to or not...this is a great read!

the series they got me is Fablehaven.


ever heard of it? i feel like my family has owned this book series forever, and they always told me it was a good one, but i never picked it up. for some reason i always thought it was about a gerbil or something...? yeah, i don't even know(it's not, ps). i finally pulled the first book(there are five in this series) down from the shelf Sunday afternoon, and bam. read. i can guarantee book two will be finished today. it's fantasy, if you hadn't gathered from the cover :) and just the fun read i have been needing lately.

*have you read either of these books?

*what are you reading right now? (i always love hearing about new good books to read!)

  1. I am reading Fablehaven to my 2nd graders right now, and it's really the only time of the day they are quiet..I mean dead quiet. They love it. And we got to meet Brandon Mull yesterday! They didn't think it was so cool, but I did!

  2. Hey Audrey, We all love those Fablehaven books around here. Mase, Grey, and I have read the whole series. Brandon Mull has written 2 other series that are fun: Candy Shop Wars and Beyonders. Those are good ones too. The Linda Eyre book I've been wanting to read for a while. Funny that you have just finished it.
