Times up.

It is time to officially close shop. While I love the idea of boys blogging books, sadly, the boys who originally committed to this are no longer able to commit.

Kurtis, while he is still reading , is busy recording for a CD that will be released in the fall. While he has previously been on three compilation CD's, this year he will release a CD that is all his music.

Hopeful is one of the songs on this years compilation released in April:

You can find more of his music on iTunes and/or by going here:

Michael will be starting High School this year and has begun pursuing music as well. He also remains an avid reader, but unfortunately, does not have time to keep reviewing.

Here are some other Boys Book Blogs you might want to check out:

Thanks to everyone who stuck it out through our sporadic postings. Thanks to the guys who committed for at least a while. I'm not taking the blog site down. There are some great reviews and interviews. Hopefully they will encourage someone to read something they might not have otherwise tried.

Wow it really has been nearly a year!!

Last year around this time we put up a poll asking where Michael should review his next book. The results were, while playing ping-pong. Unfortunately after busted pipes and a flooded basement the ping-pong table was put out of service. =(

The book he was going to review was Slob by Ellen Potter. This book rated thumbs up from Michael.
Other books he has read since then include:
Cirque Du Freak by Darren Shan
He read the entire series and was excited by the idea of the movie. Unfortunately when you read a story that you like so much it is disappointing when the movie does not compare.

Skeleton Creek by Sarah Fincher
These books were a total scare! Literally. If you aren't too much of a chicken, check them out. Well worth it.

Coming Very Soon:

Books of Umber by PW Catanese
