I couldn't help myself. I know I made promises last week about what I would read, but got sidetracked when the sequel to Discovery of Witches landed on my doorstep. It is one of the dangers of our library system, home delivery. You can't really control when the books show up. I held out until Saturday. Frankly, I didn't have time to read all week with Open House and lesson study to prepare for. I certainly made up for it on Saturday by starting and finishing Shadow of Night. Again I would suggest that this book is more appropriate for older readers. It is written for adults, but I would hand this series to sophomores, juniors, and seniors too. ****SPOILER ALERT**** Enjoy meeting a host of historical figures through the timewalking of Diana and Matthew. This sequel stands up to the the first. Now I have to wait until the conclusion comes out in 2014. That's okay! I have other series books awaiting my hands, Rick Riordan's The House of Hades and Veronica Roth's Allegiant this month. I am also finishing Let's Not Go to the Dogs Tonight, a memoir of a girl who grew up in Africa. I'll tell you more about it next week.
