  1. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your link and comment. I am following you too.

    I think your son would enjoy Diary of a Wimpy kid and another suggestion is Geronimo Stilton. My son loves them and is pretty much through the whole Geronimo series.

    You got some great books. Wishing you a great week.

  2. I've heard good things about Let's Pretend this Never Happened. The author must have an interesting life if she can write her memoirs so young.

    1. My problem is that I haven't read any of the 1st 11 in the series. I've been told that you really need to read them in order. I'm going to have to get working! :)
