Idgiepug's CBR#4 Review #58-62: The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander

Having a 7-year-old and working in a high school, I don’t usually play the “kids today have it so easy” card.  Being a kid is HARD now.  657 more words

Idgiepug's CBR#4 Reviews #53-57: The Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins

I picked up the first book of Suzanne Collins’ Underland Chronicles series to see if it would be good for my son.  My husband and I sometimes struggle to find him good, engaging books that are at his reading level but that don’t contain material or ideas that are too mature for him.  416 more words

Idgiepug's #CBR4 Review #52: Every You, Every Me by David Levithan

I made it!!!!  I knew I could read 52 books in a year (and probably do most years), but I wasn’t sure about the reviews.  I started off the year strong, refusing to allow myself to start a new book until I finished the review for my last novel.  399 more words

Idgiepug's CBR#4 Review #49: Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos

Checking out the Newberry award winners’ shelf at the library while little Pug browsed the Garfield collection, I saw Jack Gantos’ Dead in Norvelt.  I picked it up for a quick read and enjoyed it a great deal.  300 more words

Idigepug's #CBR4 Review #48: The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

Brian Selznick’s The Invention of Hugo Cabret symbolizes an important moment in my life: it was the first book my son recommended to me.  He and my husband both listened to the audiobook, and my son was bubbling over with talk of automatons afterword.  194 more words
