Boy Books Pack!

Our final blogiversary giveaway starts today! I can't believe it is almost over. I hope you still come to our blog frequently even without the insane giveaways I've been doing. You never know if a book you love or really want to read will be up for giveaway another time!

This week is all about boys. There has actually been a lot of conversation about this in the blogging world lately. Without going into details, someone said that the book world is overpowered by books for and by girls. To those people I say that we love our boy books too! I don't think there can be too many books for any person out there!

But I do realize that most boys are turned off by books that many girls eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. So in honor of those boys, here is a set of books that boys AND girls will love!

SPLURCH ACADEMY FOR DISRUPTIVE BOYS: THE RAT BRAIN FIASCO by Julie Berry and illustrated by Sally Gardner- Paperback, signed by Julie Berry
SPLURCH ACADEMY FOR DISRUPTIVE BOYS: THE BIZZARO BEETLE by Julie Berry and illustrated by Sally Gardner - Paperback, signed by Julie Berry

Just wanted to comment on the book world being overpowered by girls. I do think that might apply to the YA genre right now, but not for anything else. I know lots of guys who read, they just read different genres than girls and women are reading right now. Heck, my husband is the one who introduced me to reading for fun!

Thanks for another giveaway! But I do love your blog with or without them!

Thanks for your thoughts Sara! I too have a husband who loves to read, and a brother (as you well know) that reads more than anyone else I know. I really like Julie's post that I posted this morning, because it may speak as to why some boys continue to love reading and others do not?

I agree that a lot of the YA books now seem to be girl oriented but I think that has a lot to do with the success of twilight. These days most of the YA is paranormal romance. That being said my husband and I are both bibliophiles. We like some of the same books but then have others that we read that the other does not.
