Life After Vampires

In the past year, if you've asked the question "What should I read right now?" most likely you were told Twilight and its sequels. And if you've read them and are now wondering the same question, here are a few books that I've enjoyed recently:

  • Princess Academy, The Goose Girl, Enna Burning, and River Secrets by Shannon Hale (I would read them in that order; the latter three are kind of a trilogy.)
  • The Tale of Despereaux, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, and Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo (These are great for reading to kids, too.)
  • Uglies, Pretties, and Specials by Scott Westerfeld (to be read in that order)

P.S. These books are from the sci-fi/fantasy genre; however, even if you think you are one of those people who doesn't like sci-fi/fantasy, these books are fairly mainstream, and therefore you will enjoy them.

Don't have time to read. I spend all of my time looking at pictures of my gbaby on her website!
