I have Big Plans for the second bathroom, but for the past week I have been re-reading the Harry Potter series at night after the kids go to bed.  Seeing as that is my prime DIY project time, the bathroom has taken a back seat for a while.

I'm up to book five (Order of the Phoenix).  Its been a while since I've read the earlier books.  We had a flood in our basement a few years ago and I lost a lot of books, the earlier HP books among them, so I ordered the box set a few weeks ago.  I had reread the Deathly Hallows before going to see the movie, and there's sooooo much exposition in that book, but the end is just so good.

I am really enjoying the re-read.  Its neat to see where all the clues were that I missed the first time around.  And kind of weird to not be checking Mugglenet and the Leaky Cauldron for discussion of what the clues mean.

Has anyone read the Percy Jackson and Olympians series?  Artemis Fowl?  Thoughts?  I'm open to suggestions for a new YA series to get started on.


  1. I enjoyed the Percy Jackson series. Not as good as HP (but so much better than those terrible Twilight stories :-P).

  2. It's been so long since I've read the HP books that I seriously need to reread them, especially since I sell YA and kid's books! Every summer, I plan to do that, but never get to it. The Skulduggery Pleasant books by Derek Landy are fun. The Hunger Game series is also a good one, although I will say I wasn't a huge fan of the third and last one. The Gone series sells well at my store, too.

  3. I've started the Hunger Games. I'll look at the Gone and Skullduggery books too, thanks.
