The Book Bucket List


For Sir Son, age 15

  • Mutiny, A Novel of The Bounty, by John Boyne.   (I have started reading this one.  I am only on page two, because you should never read when a 15 wants to talk to you.  So far 😀  I am  liking it.)
  • Octavian Nothing, Vol 2, by M. T. Anderson.  As I was typing this I realized this is vol. 2.  I’ll have to get vol. 1 first. duh…
  • Secret Soldiers, by Philips Gerard

For the oldest girl.

Warriors   ug,  I am sick of her reading these things.  She isn’t moving on to something else, so I am going to take time today and make a list of what she can read this summer.  Warriors is banned from our home for a while. 🙂

Updated to add:   We went to the library with a list of books from Honey For  A Child’s Heart.  The sad things is that most of the books are not readily available at our library.  I think I requested eight.  I did get these (plus a few more that I don’t want to dig from the bucket to retrieve):

  • One More River by Lynne Reid Banks
  • The High King by Lloyd Alexander

For The Peas.

  • Buster by Denise Fleming
  • The Day-Off Machine by John Himmelman
  • Lo-Jack and the Pirates, by William H. Hooks
  • all the small poems and fourteen more by Valerie Worth
  • The Show-and-Tell Frog by Joanne Oppenhelm
  • Wake Me in Spring by James Preller
  • The Perfect Pony by Corinne Demas
  • Tippy-Tippy-Tippy, Hide!  by Candace Fleming
  • The Everything Kids cookbook by Sandra K. Nissenberg

For the Mom.

  • An Outdoor Guide t Bartram’s Travels by Charles d. Spornick
  • Honey For A Woman’s Heart by Gladys Hunt
  • Honey for A Child’s Heart by Gladys Hunt (fourth edition 🙂 )

After going to the library, I realized I do not have enough grade appropriate books for my 4th grader.  I’ll have to look at Read Aloud Handbook and Honey For a Child’s Heart to get a nice list of books.

Four Square’s Library Shelf

For more reading lists go to The Happy Housewife. 🙂

  1. I got mighty sick of watching Anemone reading Warriors, too. They are such terrible books. Every time I try to read one I want to hurl.

    I copied you again. 😀

  2. I haven’t heard of most of your books. I will be adding some to my list… of course not Warriors, because I don’t need to be sick of anything else in my house.

  3. Yikes! Daughter loves Warriors too….lol. Beware of anything with a hundred sequels…evident sign of addictive qualities. Hoping next year’s high school reading will engage her the same way! :-O
