Reckless - Young Adult Fiction! Yay! I downloaded a library copy out of desperation because I wanted *something* that was available immediately, and I remembered liking Cornelia Funke when I read some of her books a while back. This was terrific! The main character, Jacob, spends much of his life in another world that he enters through the mirror. This most recent time, his brother follows him and ends up being attacked, which leads to his transformation into another terrifying species. Jacob and his brother are on a quest to reverse the transformation throughout this book. Fairies, shape shifters, magic galore... It's my kind of book!
Fearless - So of course I immediately got the sequel. Also awesome, definitely worth reading! But I wish they hadn't been written so many years apart, because it doesn't give me a lot of hope that another book in the series will be written any time soon...
An Alphabet of Catholic Saints - Also a convention buy - I love the illustrations, the kids love the saints. Not the best editing, since they forgot to fix one of the "Blesseds" on Kateri Tekakwitha's page, so in one place she's a Saint and in another she isn't yet... But overall, a really nice book for Catholic kids!
Prima Latina - I know, I know... Don't start Latin until they're in 4th or 5th or whatever grade. But... John Paul! I mean, last night he slept with a French-English dictionary. So yeah, he just about peed his pants when we brought this home from the homeschool convention. And is now greeting everyone with "Salve!"
Okay, I hear John Paul hollering from upstairs, so blogging time is over! Linking this up with Heather at Mama Knows, Honeychild for my 5 Favorites this week... And maybe linking up with Jessica at Housewifespice, buuuuut my money is on her being in labor because she doesn't have a post up today!
