Kids Kick

I am in a serious kids kick right now. I think it started last week. I am in the reading zone and its a nice place to be. I finished two books today Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life by Wendy Mass and The Opposite of Invisible by Liz Gallagher. Yesterday I read Eleven by Lauren Myracle. I do enjoy a good kids kick. There are some downsides though, if a book doesn't catch my attention quickly I have to put it down. Also once out of my kick I can't even think about reading another MG or YA book for at least 2-3 weeks. When I am in the middle of one, I don't think about that stuff. I focus on the words and the thrill of the read. In the past the kick's haven't lasted too long. This time I have a plan, to balance out my reading. Going back and forth between MG and YA and reading various genres. I should be able to keep it going longer. Hopefully I will feel more comfortable with reviewing and talk about a few of these books.

I love a good kids kick. I need to go on another one soon. We just hired a fifteen year old and she's telling me about lots of stuff I've missed.

(PS: You stopped by my blog on LJ and asked about The Host. I wouldn't hesitate giving it to any kid who liked Twilight. I'm honestly not sure why it's being marketed as adult.)
