The Mysterious Benedict Society

The Mysterious Benedict Society

I loved this book.  Absolutely adored it.  I finished it last night and hinted to Ben that I would like the second one immediately (apparently, the bookstore he looked in today did not have it).  I got sucked into Reynie’s world as soon as I read the first page and I couldn’t wait to see what happened.  It is probably the closest thing to the Harry Potter feeling that I have found in this post Deathly Hallows world.  There was mystery (some a little easy to solve but I’m not really the targeted reader), adventure, fun characters, and even some humor.  This book is the reason that you shouldn’t dismiss kid’s lit.  Have I mentioned how much I love this book?

Next on my reading list is The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet.  Both Emily and Ginger Sister raved about it, so I picked it up from the library as soon as possible.  I haven’t started it yet but I am very much looking forward to it.

  1. Both books sound interesting… I'm especially intrigued by The MBS, I really miss Harry Potter and it would be nice to read something like that…
