Independent Reading Check In!!!

We have not blogged about what we are reading for fun in a long time, and we all know that books can really add a lot of joy to your life! I always like to have a good fiction book around...like a good friend. Lately, I have been reading a book called At the Water's Edge. This book is historical fiction, and it is for enjoyment. Historical fiction is based on historical events and people that are true but the story is fiction. Books can be entertaining and POWERFUL!




 What have you all been reading lately? How has the book entertained you? Please tell us about the book you are reading in 4 to 5 complete sentences.  Be sure to use the correct grammar and punctuation.

  1. The book I'm reading is called The Land of Stories the Enchantress Returns and it's about the enchantress who cursed Sleeping Beauty. She has come back even more powerful and is taking over all the kingdoms in the Land of Stories and this is the 2nd book in the series. And the Bailey twins Connor and Alex have discovered the Land of Stories and don't want it to get destroyed by the enchantress. So they go to some old friends they met in their last book to help them find something called the Wand of Wonderment which is a wand that can be built by getting the six most prized possessions of the most hated people including the enchantress. So can the twins save the Land of Stories? You'll have to find out in The Land of Stories the Enchantress Returns!!!

  12. I am reading a book called "Demigods and Monsters". It is about how life as a demigod would feel, it is also a book about monsters out to get you. Different authors write about Monsters and Gods witch can be involved in a demigods every day life. For example Ares came to a diner in one of Percy Jackson's adventures to get Zues's lightning bolt because it got stolen. I recommend this book to any body who likes action, Greek myths and adventure.
