Geeky Stuff Life

Reading makes you smart.

That’s why I’m currently dusting off some of my favourite books for some “smart” reading this summer. I’ve already put up a sticky on my desktop to remind me that I’m only moments away from sinking my teeth into some quality literature.


My first pick for smart summer reading is definitely:

Hoofbeats: Lara and the Silent Place.

Lara and the silent phase

This book really takes me back to my own “silent place” and the innocence that surrounds me when I’m in said silent place. And then there was silence…

My second pick is the mystery thriller:

The Not-So-Jolly Roger.

not so jolly roger

This book is by far the most mysterious and thrilling episode in the “Time Warp Trio” Series. I like to hide under the covers and read this book with a flashlight whilst eating marshmellows and cheese snacks. Takes you back, doesn’t it?

    I think that the Hoofbeats book appears to be some sort of rip-off of the Saddle Club series…of which I may or may not own 2 volumes. Smart summer reading at it’s best!

    It’s a good thing that you’re doing #3 before #4, otherwise they might taste really ucky.:) Happy reading!

    Wait a minute: I meant to say do #2 before #3. My reading comprehension skills are low. Perhaps, I should sit down with a good book, too. LOL

    i recommend the entire Hoofbeats Series.

    but you don’t have to take my word for it.
