Very exciting read. I loved it as much as my kids. It is written very smoothly which made it easy to read. This is usually not my kind of books and my kids usually would not have read it but they loved this one. A great read.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter)

Best of the seven book series by far. This book has more action more plot twist and just plain in your face action. I LOVED THIS BOOK and hated the movie. You cannot just see this movie you have to read the book. With all the books being out and the movies running out this series might begin to fade but this is a must read for now and all times.

This series is great. My kids love it and I actually enjoyed it as well. With the trailers for the upcoming first movie already coming out it has resparked their interest in these books. They have already read all 5 books and are now starting over with The Lightening Thief to reread them. I highly recommend these books to all parents for their kids.

Before They Are Hanged: The First Law, Book Two (First Law #02) by Joe Abercrombie
Before They Are Hanged: The First Law, Book Two (First Law #02)

Erica Horne, September 14, 2009

Very interesting book. If you love historical reads this is a must read for you. A lot of times older books are hard to follow and can get boring real fast; not the case here. A must read for all fans of History. It is action packed and keeps you interest sparked. Great job!

The Wolf in the Parlor: The Eternal Connection Between Humans and Dogs by Jon Franklin
The Wolf in the Parlor: The Eternal Connection Between Humans and Dogs

Erica Horne, September 8, 2009

This thoroughly enjoyable book shows the power and joy that can be had from well-written nonfiction. The author's search for answers to an enigma is as gripping as the "whodunits" that I like to read. Yet, truth is more fascinating than made-up stories. A photo of a 12,000-year-old skeleton reaching out to the skeleton of a small dog entices Franklin on a quest that takes him from ancient caves guarded by wolf skulls to his own hearth where a Standard Poodle puppy named Charlie turns his world upside down. In this nonfiction mystery, Franklin sets out to discover why dogs are such an integral part of all societies, not only here in the U.S. This is more than a book about dogs; it is a book about what makes us human. It will appeal to anyone wanting to learn more about the world in which they live.
