Both boys love to read. Cutie Pie, the 9 year old third-grader, is an avid reader. When it gets quiet we usually find him reading. He still loves to have us read to him, so family reading time still happens every night, but even then we sometimes have to tell him to put his book down to listen to the story we’re reading!

What are your boys reading? A short list of the books a 9 year old recommends.

Though I’m not posting as often during my course-work, the boys are eager to share their most recent reads with you! They are even excited to help on the blog by sharing a few reviews of their favorite books from the past year.


Today, we’re sharing the list of books Cutie Pie has had on his bedside table most frequently this past year.

  Cutie Pie’s recommended reading*:

Beast Quest series by Adam Blade
Lunch Lady by Jarrett J. Krosoczka
Wings of Fire by Tui T. Sutherland
The Secrets of Droon series by Tony Abbott
Captain Underpants by Dave Pilkey
Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling – we have been reading this as a family and are currently on book 4, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

As I mentioned, the boys will be sharing reviews of some of these books on the blog this summer! I’ll be sharing Sweet Pea’s favorite books to read in another post, so watch for that!
