September 12th: We Knew Everything Would Be All Right
September 12th: We Knew Everything Would Be All Right - H. Byron Masterson Elementary School,M.O. Kennet

September 12th: We Knew Everything Would Be All Right is such powerful book written and illustrated by first graders. We are reminded that even after the horrific events that took place on September 11, 2001 the world still continued the next day. This would be an outstanding book to use in the classroom when speaking about the events that took place on September 11th. It would be a great book to introduce the message of hope. Students could write about things that bring them hope or what makes them proud to be an American. It would also be a great book to introduce the word patriotism and how the students in the text displayed love for their country.

Well, this is part of the list of books I've been dying to read. I have had most of these books on my shelves for about a year, some not that long. I want to get to these books as soon as possible, but I'm taking my time, but I'm dying to read these books! Oh, the life of a book lover and not knowing when to read these awesome books. I'm not going to get into too much detail, I would like to wait till I write a review. Some books don't really need to be talked about...hehe ;)



First on the list is


Almost Demon by AJ Salem

I won this book last year and it just caught my attention. The book is about a girl who is learning how to summon demons to save her hometown. Now, if that doesn't grab your attention, then I don't what will. I'm saving it for next month for the spirit of all hollows eve!


Next up is


Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire

I had read Wicked a few months back and OMG I loved the book. I was excited to finally get the second book, to find out what has happened since Elphaba's death. I can't wait to dive right into the world of OZ again!


Third on the list


The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

I have been dying to read a John Green book for a long time. I've knew of him from youtube as one half of the vlogbrothers. Never knew he was an author until later on. I been wanting to read this book for awhile and I finally got it. Yes, I know I'm late to the game, but better last then never right?! Of course we all know what the story is about. 


Fourth is


She is Risen by  Travis Irish

I won this last year as well. The blurb was really good and I had to try to win it.




House of Despicable Beauty by B.K. Birch

This is another win for me. I thought this book sounded really awesome. This I'm also, saving for October.  


Coming up


The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Who doesn't know about this book. I've seen the movie a long time ago and I never knew it was a book! I can't wait to get going on this book later on.


Up next is


Snoop by Susan E Paul

Another win from a while ago. The synopsis caught my attention and it was a funny blurb and I can't wait to get to this book!


Coming up is


The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy by Stieg Larsson

I've been wanting to read this trilogy for quite sometime. When I seen it at my library's book sale I snatched them all up. 


Up is


Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

I seen the movie and didn't know it was a book, until after I seen this wonderful movie. After seeing the movie and knowing there is a book. I was excited when I found it a my local Half Price Books Outlet.




With Their Eyes by Annie Thoms

This book I found at my local library's book sale. The book is full of stories about some teenagers, who witness 9/11 first hand. I got it because, I would like to know what teenagers then thought about it what happened. I was a freshman in high school when it happened. So, it would be interesting to know what these particular teenagers went through. 


Well, those are some of my books on my shelves, that I have been dying read. I will hopefully get to some of them this month. The paranormal type of books will be read next month! Yay Halloween! 


Until the next time I decided to write about something other than reviews. 


Later Days!

I Survived the Attacks of September 11th, 2001 (I Survived, Book 6)
I Survived the Attacks of September 11th, 2001 - Lauren Tarshis My son just turned 8 and does not enjoy fictitious books. He prefers facts about true events. I happened to see this book displayed at the library on Sept. 11th and grabbed it.When we started reading it together, he was leary. By the end, he was wanting to research more on the internet.Lauren Tarshis wove a fictional story about a boy named Lucas, whose father was a firefighter at the time of the 9/11 attacks around the actual events of 9/11. She totally hit the mark.I found the book very age appropriate. It was written in such a way that it did not create nightmares, but allowed him to grasp the enormity of the tragedy that occured.I recommend this book to any parent having trouble getting their children to read fictitious "chapter" books. This book met my son's need for information! I will certainly be looking for the rest of this series!
