Book Blogger Hop May 5-11

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question: What are the  next five books in your TBR (to-be-read) pile? And don't worry, you can change your mind and read something different-we won't check?

My list is never set in stone because I review children's books. Our family goes to the library once a week and whatever my 20 month old grabs off the racks is what we're reading for the week.

Here's my list:

1. The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson- This is my own personal read, not for review on the blog. I just finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo because of the movie being out and I decided to read the whole series.

2. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson- The last one in the series.

3. May I Bring A Friend? by Beatrice Schenk De Regniers - This was one of my favorite books to read as a child and I can't wait to introduce it to my son. There will be a review for this one.

4. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst- Another childhood favorite that I will be reviewing with my son.

5. The Little One Series inspired by The Purpose-Driven Life by Amy Warren Hilliker- This series introduces the five purposes from The Purpose-Driven Life: Knowing God's love, Being a member of God's family, Growing in Christ, Helping People, and Telling others about God. I will be doing a review of these books but I will hold the review until my son and I have gotten through all of the books.

What books are in your TBR pile? Let me know in the comments.


  1. Enjoy your books! I miss those read-aloud picture books. My kids are teens now. We still read aloud with them, but the books are much longer and more involved, and sometimes I just miss pointing to the picture and rhyming things.

    1. I love the rhyming books. It makes me feel great when my son can pick up on the rhymes and say them with me (in his own words lol).

  2. I love your list. The Stieg Larsson books are in my pile, too. As is Mrs. Kennedy and Me by Lisa McCubbin, Imagine by Johan Lehrer, and A History of the World in Six Glasses by Tom Standage. What a great blog! Thanks for joining us at NOBH! Smiles -

    1. Thanks. I love meeting new bloggy friends. The first book in the series is awesome. It's over 600 pages and I finished it in less than 2 days.

  3. I need to get to 1 and 2 and I'm looking forward to reading number 4 with my new niece soon.

  4. I love that you've included books for your son! Of all the important things parents do for their children, instilling a love of reading is a great gift. Go you!

  5. All your books on the list are going to my list! And they Its lovely the books for you little one.
