    The first book I’m reading is Magyk by Angie Sage. It’s the first book in the Septimus Heap series and it’s awesome!

      Thank you, Ms. Becky. I am sure the 6th grade students would be happy to see their former teacher commenting on the blog. Have a great year.

    My first book that I am reading in middle school is ‘Frindle’ by Andrew Clements. I started reading the book yesterday and it is so fun!

    The book I’m reading right now is the Ranger’s Apprentice, by John Flanagan. This book is really interesting. It interested me so much that it reminded me of Rick Riordan’s book’s.
    He wrote my favourite books to this date.

    The first book I read was Allie Finkle. Now I am trying another book. It looks good.
