That's what's new with me. What's new with you?


  1. Oh I never knew about this series. I'm not a guy but I love books for tween guys! HIgh stakes and intelligent stories!

    My Haul

  2. It's great to see guys targeted toward guys. Girls can read them too obviously but most guys do not want to read 'girly' books or books with romantic themes and that is so popular nowadays. I may have to look into this series for my younger brothers. Happy Reading!
    Here are my newest additions.
