This was a GREAT conclusion to the Powerless trilogy. I want to say more about it, but the book doesn’t come out until August. I’ll have to wait until the day draws closer.
The final installment in this superheroic series by Matthew Cody (author of Powerless and Super) will answer all your burning questions!The truth about the Super children is finally exposed, and the town of Noble’s Green has created a special boarding school for its superpowered children. That’s where Daniel’s friends are headed, while he-regular kid that he is-is headed to summer school.


But all is not well at the Academy for the Extraordinarily Gifted, or in Noble’s Green. A clique of popular kids has taken over the school. And at the same time, vandals have been destroying property all over town, and citizens are beginning to blame their gifted young residents. If Daniel wants to get to the bottom of this puzzle, he may need to turn to his sworn enemy, the Shroud, for help. But can he trust him?

Last week I offered this part of the blog to any student who wanted to post about a finished book. Two students took me up on the offer.
First up is Jess N.

Fire alone can save our Clan…

For generations, four Clans of wild cats have shared the forest according to the laws laid down by the powerful ancestors. But the warrior code is threatened, and the ThunderClan cats are in grave danger. The sinister ShadowClan grows stronger every day. Noble warriors are dying — and some deaths are more mysterious than others.

In the midst of this turmoil appears an ordinary housecat named Rusty . . . Who may yet turn out to be the bravest warrior of them all.


From Jess:

Warriors by Erin Hunter is a great series to get into. Warriors 1: Into the Wild is the first warriors book. If you like cats and adventure, you’ll like this book. A kittypet (house cat) named Rusty desides to leave his twolegs (people) to live in the forest. Things aren’t all happy though. Murderous secrets lurk in the shadows. The forest is not safe. A blood-thirsty killer is rising, and a prophecy has come. “Fire alone can save our clan. And that fire has come.”

This NEW Geronimo Stilton series spin-off is set in the Stone Age!

Who is Geronimo Stiltonoot?
He is a cavemouse — Geronimo Stilton’s ancient ancestor. He runs the stone newspaper in the prehistoric village of Old Mouse City. From dealing with dinosaurs to dodging meteorites, his life in the Stone Age is full of adventure!

Old Mouse City is in an uproar. The most precious artifact in the mouseum — the Stone of Fire — has been stolen! Geronimo Stiltonoot and his cavemouse friend Hercule Poirat are on the case. It’s up to them to retrieve the stone from the ferocious Tiger Khan and his band of fearsome felines!

I just finished the book… Geronimo Stilton Cavemice: The Stone of Fire. My brother got the book for his birthday and really liked it so he wanted me to read it. I used to read the Geronimo Stilton series, so I was excited to read this new book. I really liked it, it was really cute and funny! One thing that I like about the book series is that some of the words in the books are different colors and/or different fonts which makes them funny to read. Another thing that I like about the book is that the characters are mice and they go on all theses types of adventures that people usually don’t go on. If you like books that are cazy, funny and adventurous, maybe you should try the Gereonimo Stilton series (the regular and the cave mice series).
Teacher comment: Kailey, I think it’s great that you are a reading role model for your little brother. You, his cool big sister, reading this so you could talk about it with him makes his reading and book choices feel more important. Way to go!
Thanks for “renting” this space, ladies! Who’s next?

This has been on my list for a long time. I finished Villainous and this was on my dresser.
If you can enlarge the picture and look closely at the bottom right corner, you will find the clue of what happens on the first 15 pages. Wow. I liked the Kite Runner, so I’m hoping this is a type of kid version. I’ll keep you posted.

  1. I am currently reading House of Suns by Alastair Reynolds. It is considered hard science fiction and takes place millions of years in the future.

    • Millions? I’m glad to hear that someone thinks we’ll still be around.

      What IS “hard” science fiction? More difficult to read?

      Thanks for sharing.

  2. Pingback: 4.28 It’s Monday! What are you reading? #ShootingKabul #InsideOut | {Eat the Book}

  3. Picked up The Magic (The Secret) this weekend by Rhonda Byrne. In this book reveals this life-changing knowledge to the world. Then, on an incredible 28-day journey, she teaches you how to apply this knowledge in your everyday life. Love all that is about the Law of Attraction>> So far so good….

      • I just finished reading “Daddy’s Gone A Hunting” by Mary Higgins Clark. It was a well written mystery that lead to suspense until the very end of the book. Now I just started reading “Second Honeymoon” by James Patterson.
