June Books

So this post is more for my own personal benefit than anything else. I still want to keep track of the books I'm reading so I can go back and review them at the end of the year. Now my inner book-girl nerd is coming out for the world to see. I'm okay with it.

I thought this was an excellent book. I thought maybe I wouldn't like it as much because it is about the invention of the airplane, and as much as I think airplanes are cool and all, I get bored reading mechanically-type stuff. But this book was never boring. The Wright Brothers have always been kind of enigmatic to me. After reading this I have a lot of respect for them. I would definitely recommend this one.

So I read this book in a couple hours this past weekend. It's about what you would expect for a middle grade novel. I read Surviving the Applewhites as a kid and loved it, so when I heard there was another one, I always was kind of on the lookout to read it. I was a little disappointed. Again, not sure if the first one was way before or if my response just has to do with the fact that I'm 15 years older and I have a degree in English now. Deep down inside, I'm still very satisfied I read it though. I had to see how the Applewhites were getting on these days.
