Here is Part Two of our discussion of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone for our summer read-along. Please note that because I’ve posted this late, I’ve extended the deadline to our summer contest giveaway to Sept 10 at midnight PST.
I'm FINALLY reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone! Finally! I admit that I had started and stopped it many times, not because of poor writing, but because it starts slowly for someone who has already seen the films. But the whole reason I picked this book for our summer read-along is because I wanted to get through the first book so I can get to all the rest.
And I'm glad I did. The world building is fantastic right from the get-go.
Join us as we discuss the characters and second half of Erin Entrada Kelly’s Hello, Universe.
Come join us on our EPIC summer read-along! It’s a classic and I have never read it.
That’s right! As you may have guessed from the picture, we are reading and discussing Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. Read it with us for the first or fiftieth time.
There are prize involved as well!
We've heard the phrase WE NEED DIVERSE BOOKS over and over again. And it's true. No matter how many times you hear it, or if you're sick of hearing the same things in conferences. When I was growing up, I NEVER saw myself in the books I read. Ever.
I was so excited that Erin Entrada Kelly won the Newbery that I did this read-along a little differently: I distributed ten copies of Hello, Universe to my fellow bibliophiles and colleagues who love to read.

For this part of the discussion of The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, I want to talk about family. Last post, I talked about the strong sense of community that Thomas wrote about. The center of it all is the Carter family. I mention it in our part one discussion, but I think this strong sense of community and family really comes into fruition in the second half of the novel.

I STAND CORRECTED!! I can admit when I'm wrong. In an earlier post, I note (complain) that Edward doesn't tell Bella that he loves her, but he DOES. It just takes a while for him to say the actual words. Also, page 363 holds a steamy--but not R-rated--kiss that I thought was written well.
Welcome back to our EPIC read-along of Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. When we last left our two love birds, well, they were just starting to become love birds. In this section, Edward declares his undying/immortal love for Bella. Wait, that didn't happen. HE NEVER TELLS HER HE LOVES HER! This bothered me so much the first time I read Twilight that I kept having to re-read the meadow scene. Why can't he say the words?!! Is it because he's a teenage boy? Albeit, he's lived longer than I have, but vampires don't change, right?
