Family 2012 Book List

For those of you who enjoy reading books as a family, here is the start of my 2012 book list containing my top family books for the year to read! Hoping we can read more than this…but thought it would be wise this year to keep it a little smaller than I have attempted previously!  I enjoy reading the same books as my children read as it’s a great way to get involved in a family time conversation and we have a lot of fun discussing the books we read.

Currently reading: The Hunger Games (trying to get it finished before the movie comes out on Friday the 23rd.)

The Help by Kathryn Sockett

Big Nate Series by Lincoln Peirce (our son’s read 3 out of ? in the series)

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series by Jeff Kinney

The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins

The Pioneer Woman Cooks by Ree Drummond (Ree is a a great inspiration when it comes to cooking and managing life on the farm.)

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Tunnels by Roderick Gordon, Brian Williams

The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

Chrystallia by P.M. Glaser (we met P.M. Glaser at the Sacramento Autorama this past February. He was signing autographs in front of the car that was used in the Starkey and Hutch television show. Boy, I guess that dates me. :))

Freckles by Gene Statton Porter

The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini (the kids got to meet the author when we lived in the Bay Area and we all received autograph copies of Eragon.)

The Cupcake Diaries by Coco Simon

Redwall by Brian Jacques

Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
