What I’m Reading Wednesday’s!

Hello everyone! It’s time for another What I’m Reading Wednesday’s. This week’s books were recently finished no more than a week ago. If you’re unfamiliar with this weekly event, check out the link here.

The first book is called “Down the Mysterly River” by Bill Willingham.



Max “the Wolf” is a top-notch Boy Scout, an expert at orienteering, and a master at being prepared. It’s a little odd when he suddenly finds himself, with no memories of the recent or distant past and lost in unfamiliar woods. What’s even odder still, is that he meets a Badger named Banderbrock, a black bear named Walden, and McTavish the Monster (who might be a old barn cat.) All of them talk and are as clueless and confused as Max. Before long, Max and his newfound friends run into a group of hunters and their deadly hounds. Known as the Blue Cutters, these hunters are armed with powerful blue swords. They capture and alter the chosen victim to who they want to be. For a purpose that Max and his friends can’t figure out. Unless he can solve the mystery of the strange forested world he’s landed in, Max may find himself and his friends changed beyond recognizion.

The second book is called Vet Volunteers New Beginnings by Laurie Halse Anderson. Since this is the 13th book in the series, I have decided a while ago that I won’t be doing author facts for Laurie. Instead I will do Hometown Facts.



Jules and Josh are twins who moved from Pittsburgh and what to join Dr. Mac’s Vet Volunteers. The trouble is, when they arrived at their new school, Jules got off on the wrong foot with Maggie, Dr. Mac’s granddaughter. Even worse? Jules adopts the Science class rabbit, but it’s chewing up everything in sight! Is there any chance for the twins to become Vet Volunteers?
