Hey all! What are you currently reading? The weather is warming up and summer break is coming soon for the highschoolers; so what is everyone reading?

I'm currently reading 'How Green Was My Valley' by Richard Llewellyn...though it's getting a little strange toward the end.

'How Green Was My Valley' is a slice of life novel written by an absolutely poetic author...but sometimes his comments come off a little odd. The main character, Huw Morgan, lives in a Welsh coal valley where he learns all sorts of things from mining coal, of course, to how to fight boys at school.

A more modern read, 'Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children' is also a good read. It follows a teenage boy, Jacob Portman, who searches for the truth behind his grandfather's past. Jacob's grandfather mentioned things like monsters and special children; it's very interesting who the real monsters are...you'll find out who if you read the book.

With a term paper due shortly, reading probably shouldn't be a top priority..but it's fine. We're fine.

I read "Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children", the whole book series which is different than the adaptation make for TV. I liked it, but it was a bit dark.

Indeed, I have heard that the film adaptation was very dark and unsettling! Another book is coming out though, so the producers may go in a different direction with that. It's like 'Anne With an E.' Many people were remarking at how depressing it was. Oh well...the books for both series have so far been good!

That sounds similar to another book about famous female martyrs all over the world, though the name slips beyond the grasp of my mind at present. Do you recommend the book you just read?
