Weekly Round-Up is my wrap-up of last week's activities and includes what I'm reading this week, reviews I've posted, books in the mail and anything else of interest plus From the Library, my weekly listing of what I've checked out from the library.
This week I'm reading Beautiful Days by Anna Godbersen and listening to Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers, read by Erin Moon. With my son I'm reading Nick and Tesla's Robot Army Ramage by Bob Pflugfelder and Steve Hockensmith.
I read Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell last week so look for that review soon. Short version: AMAZING!
Last week I reviewed Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan and Nick and Tesla's High-Voltage Danger Lab by Bob Pflugfelder and Steve Hockensmith.
Nick and Tesla's Robot Army Ramage by Bob Pflugfelder and Steve Hockensmith
In this second novel of the Nick and Tesla series, the precocious brother-and-sister duo find themselves solving another baffling mystery. As the story opens, their Uncle Newt takes a consulting gig at a cut-rate amusement park, engineering animatronic figures for a cheap Hall of Presidentsknockoff. One perk of the job is that Nick and Tesla have unlimited access to the amusement park all summer long—but the kids quickly discover that one of the park employees has a sinister plan. They’ll have to build a few robots of their own to foil him! Readers are invited to join in the fun as each story contains instructions and blueprints for five different projects. Learning about science has never been so dangerous—or so much fun!
