"Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them."
- Arnold Lobel

Tuesday Book Review #4















Get ready, readers, for some amazing suspense with the Tunnels series by Brian Williams and Roderick Gordon!! 

When I first picked up Tunnels, the original book in this science-fiction series, I was immediately hooked.  (And I am not a huge sci-fi fan!) The plot and literary style both carry you into a world you could never, ever imagine.  Every page gets increasingly suspenseful, and you cannot bear to put down this book...I promise!!!

I could not WAIT for the second book, Deeper, and had very high expectations of it.  My expectations were exceeded, as the plot twisted and turned, keeping me in constant suspense!!

Freefall (Tunnels)

I have just begun reading Freefall (Tunnels), and it is a page-turner as well.  It started with a bang(!), just like the first two books.

Closer (Tunnels)

The latest installment in this incredible series is Closer (Tunnels).  I will be reading it as soon as I finish Freefall!!!

This series is appropriate for ages 10 and up.  It is an enriching literary experience, due to the unique story-line and excellent writing style of the authors.
