Our Favorite Reads For September

Gerard's Favorite:  Blood Feud by David Robbins

Blood Feud by David Robbins is about a feud between the Harkey clan and the Shannon clan. Chase Shannon sets out for revenge after the brutal rape of his older sister by the Harkeys. To say I enjoyed this book would be an understatement--I loved it! Blood Feud is a double wow, which means it's as good as it gets! The good news is that there is going to be two more books in this series. Can't wait!! Read and enjoy!

Karen read this one too.  Here's what she thought of it:
Blood Feud by David Robbins moved along at a good pace and kept my interest because Chace was such an interesting character.  It is is full of killing, a shoot-em up book about family loyalty, revenge, and hate. My favorite part was when Chace fled to Galveston, Texas and took over the hawking business from Tunk to help the kids which showed he was kind-hearted in spite of being a killer.  I did like the ending!

Karen's Favorite:   War Horse by Michael Morpurgo

War Horse is a touching book that kept my interest all through. 
Although it is a children's book, I enjoyed it but must admit I got teary-eyed reading it.  Parts were very sad but I loved the ending!  Joey, the horse, tells his story about living on a farm with a boy named Albert and then being sold to the army because Albert's dad needed money to save his farm.  The horse goes through a lot but Albert never gives up looking for him.

Gerard liked this one too:  War Horse by Michael Morpurgo is a double wow book for me! Joey, the war horse, tells about his adventures during World War 1 and the special bond he has with a young boy named Albert. At only 160 pages or so, it goes very fast. I loved it! I look forward to seeing the movie which is coming out on Christmas.

Those do sound very good! I just finished "The Language of Flowers" by Vanessa Diffenbaugh and it was good. Today I got "The Help" from the library and I can't wait to read it.

Beaded Tail: Thanks for your comment on our favorite reads for September. Gerard started "The Language of Flowers" but didn't like it--guess it wasn't what he expected and got bored with it. He didn't even finish it.

I'm sure you'll enjoy THE HELP. It's a fat book, but it's so good that I read it all anyway. I would like to hear what you thought of it when you finish it.
