Lost Boys Book Club

In light of recent events, i.e. the pandemic of Corona Virus shutting down schools and businesses and kids are staying home for weeks all across the world, Lost Boys is starting a Book club for tweens and pre-tweens. I've gathered a short list of some of our favorite books and hope to come back and share our reviews with you! These books are geared for kids ages 8 and up and are not usually too difficult to come by. With some libraries closed down I know it may not be convenient to order new books right now, so aside from Amazon I have two little book secrets to share with you: 

One is Thriftbooks.com where you can find tons of inexpensive used books.  My favorite feature is free shipping when you spend $10 - which means you could easily purchase 2-3 books and get them shipped for free! (BTW this is not sponsored)

Second little juicy secret that I hope I don't get in trouble for sharing is the Houston Public Library has amazing access to tons of online books and you don't have to live in Houston to open an account. There is a free app called Axis360 that you can use to access your online books and you can checkout up to 15 at a time.

Don't forget to check out your local Library's capacity for online reading as well! 

Over the next few weeks of social-distancing I'll read these with my boys and come back to review!

Now to the books!


First Read: 

 Wings of Fire, Book 1; The Dragonet Prophecy by Tui T. Sutherland

- The main characters in this book series are Dragons and they have become a big hit in our houses of boys. Lots of fighting, some violence, but just enough for my 11 year old to become fascinated with. The link below will give you a little preview on Amazon!

Wings Of Fire


Fablehaven, Book 1 by Brandon Mull

- It might be shocking but we have yet to start the Fablehaven series although I have heard nothing but good things about this Fantasy series!



The Giver

The Giver by Lois Lowry

- Nothing to say but that it's a classic!

The Giver


Peak by Roland Smith

- A fourteen-year-old boy with a love of climbing is given the chance to climb Mt Everest with his estranged father, but there are strings attached. Excited to check this one out since one of my kiddos had the grandiose idea of climbing Mt Everest one day!



The War I Finally Won by Kimberley Brubaker Bradley

- We read the first book in this series, The War that Saved My Life, and it was such a wonderful story of the hardships of WWII. Can't wait to read the sequel and learn more about the characters! I highly recommend these ones!

The War I Finally Won


Let me know if you have any suggestions for future book club books and in the meantime happy reading!
