I've finished number 44! It was the second book in Garth
Nix’s series The Keys to the Kingdom: Grim Tuesday. It’s a young adult book in
the Fantasy genre. The second was as action packed if not more than the first.
I loved the pace and for the younger reader I think the pace is crucial. Most
kids that I know don’t want to read anything that is slow or boring and Nix’s
books are neither. Boys as well as girls will enjoy the series. Young Arthur
Penhaligon is likeable as are the secondary characters he meets along his
journey. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series and Nix’s
I’m waiting for my next book club book Oscar Wilde’s The
portrait of Dorian Gray to arrive, which means I need to figure out what I will
read next. I could read another Coben because I know it will read quickly and
will be well written or I could start Kathy Reichs Déjà Dead. I’ll have to
review my list and see what I connect with.
Until next time good reading!
