Book Trailer of the Week: The Accused

Hi there!

As you probably already know (because I say it a lot!) I am always on the lookout for quality middle grade novels with boy main characters.  Well, It sounds like John Grisham has decided to help me out a bit in my hunt!Theodore Boone: The Accused by John Grisham

John Grisham, known for his wildly popular adult legal thrillers has created a series focused on thirteen year old Theodore Boone, the world’s youngest (fictional) lawyer. Check out the summary for the newest installment in this series, titled Theodore Boone: The Accused.

Theodore Boone is back! And he’s ready for his next big case
Theo Boone might only be thirteen, but he’s already uncovered key evidence in a groundbreaking murder trial and discovered the truth behind his best friend’s abduction. Now with the latest unfolding of events in Strattenburg, Theo will face his biggest challenge yet.

Now, I haven’t actually read any of these books yet, but they look like pretty fun reads that I’m going to have to add to my summer reading list!  Want more?  Watch the book trailer!

Top Ten Tuesday: May New Releases

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event held over at The Broke and Bookish as a way for book bloggers to socialize a little and have some fun!  Every week they post a Top Ten Tuesday theme or topic.  This week’s official theme is Top Ten Books You’d Like To See Made Into A Movie.  Well, I just posted a Top Ten Tuesday with this theme a few months ago (which you can read here), so this week I’m doing my own thing. :)

Okay, so this was most relevant yesterday when it was still April 30, but it’s way too funny not to post!  So, pretend you’re reading this post on Monday, April 30.

Its April 30, so that means that tomorrow….It's Gonna Be May

HAHAHAHAHA OH. MY. GOSH.  Its a day later and it still makes me laugh out loud. For real.

Aren’t you so glad I shared that?!  I know. Me too!

Okay.  Back to books!

Since it is officially May, its time to talk about some of the awesome reads that will be released this month. So, that’s exactly what this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is about: May New Releases!
