What We’re Reading This Week

I’m reading The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon. This series, the Outlander series, are the perfect summer reads. They are historically sound enough that I’m not constantly saying, “Now that ain’t right!” They are interesting for those of us who want something light, yet thick, something with enough tension to hold us but not so much tension that we can’t put it down and go to sleep at night. I think I will be sad when I’m finished with all of them…then again, maybe I’ll just start over.
Martina and I are reading this Laura Ingalls Wilder classic. We have enjoyed all of her books except Farmer Boy. I liked that one, Martina…not so much.

On the Banks of Plum Creek is, like all of the Little House series, sweet, innocent and exciting. There is adventure and mystery all hung on the framework of a safe family life. Perfect for my 7 yo daughter.
