This is headed out in the mail first thing in the morning for #lmpbc #mg 📫❤️🎉
This was a fun middle grade fantasy novel. It‘s been compared a lot to Harry Potter and while there are many similarities if you look for them, the story stands on its own. I‘m looking forward to continuing the series! I won‘t say much more since it‘s going out to the group, but Axton and I really enjoyed it.
@LibrarianRyan thanks for the awesome book hugger
That time of the month! 😉🌙 I *may* have gone a little overboard with the dark chocolate 😂
Have you read Book 1 — The Iron Trials — in The Magisterium series? I have such a soft spot for books that follow the HP legacy and this one is good enough and just different enough to be as yummy as some of the little nibbles in this picture.

What book are you curling up with right now that you were skeptical about? ☕️

Here are the top contenders my son‘s chosen for #LMPBC #middlegradegroup
The top two would be his first choices, but any of these would be great. I‘ll tag them in the comments below.
What are your thoughts? Have you already read any of these?
So, I finished this book last night, and I'm still not sure how I feel about it. I originally picked it up because Cassandra Clare is one of my favourite authors, so I had hoped that I would like it. For me, there were too many similarities to Harry Potter, and I had just about given up on the series as a whole when a plot twist hit me. And for that reason alone, I intend to continue on with the series.
"All his life, Call has been warned by his father to stay away from magic. If he succeeds at the Iron Trial and is admitted into the Magisterium, he is sure it can only mean bad things for him."

It is a book about kids and a magic school. I hate that it's been compared to Harry Potter. It's really good on it's own and it's really funny. I love these characters and their friendships. It's a great middle grade book.
It's okay, but the debt to Harry Potter is so heavy that it struggles to be its own thing. There's a twist near the end that has me curious about where the authors will take it, though I don't know whether I'm sufficiently curious to pick up the next. Probably, eventually.
I also found this book today at the thrift store!!! It looks like it would be right up my alley! Anyone else know this book? 📚
1️⃣ I'm reading A Wrinkle in Time and Iron Trial
2️⃣ I actually have quite a few of the books I'm desperate to read.... One is probably Son of Dawn
4️⃣ I used to collect pen caps because I'm really prone to losing them. So I would just go and either use a cap of the same pen or find one that fit.

I really enjoyed this book! I saw alot bad reviews on this book. Everyone was saying it was to much like Harry potter. Obviously they didn't read the whole book. It has a different plot for sure. I loved it! I listened to it on audio. I can't wait to read the next one. Sometimes you have give it a chance
before you have a opinion about it. #library #litsy #booklover #kindle #kindlefire #paperwhite
This is the book my 11 year old nephew wanted me to read so we could discuss it. I think it is fantastic for language development, lots of vocab middle graders would not already be familiar with. It is a battle/competition based plot so not great for very sensitive young people. That being said it certainly isn't any worse than the last 4 Harry Potter books. I'm planning on reading the next book in the series! #litsy2017readingchallenge #freespace
So my 11 year old nephew lives all the way across the country (😢), but soon I will get to see him for an entire week!! His instructions are that I need to have this book at least 1/2 read before he gets here so that we can talk about it. My brother *hates* reading...good thing my nephew takes after his aunt on this one. I could not possibly love him any more ❤❤❤ #bondingoverbooks
Okay, I've had enough and I'm bailing. It felt like I was reading a mesh-up of Harry Potter and Percy Jackson. Thanks, but no thanks.
I enjoyed this story. It's a quick read about a magic school. It does have some similarities to HP but not enough (yet) to turn me off. I am curious to see if goes off in an antihero direction. I hope so, it would be a nice change. Not that I'm a fan of evil, but good always triumphing can get a little monotonous. I'll pick up the next book eventually. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
I really love this series!
It's a kinda Harry Potter Story about Callum Hunt who really don't want to go to the Magisterium- a magical school. His dad told him terrible stories about magic. He tries everything but he get through the test and has to go learning witchcraft in Magisterium.
I enjoyed every book and the last one broke my heart so much. I can't but have to wait until the next one get published.
Do you know the series?
My sis-in-law got me this for part of a Christmas gift, and I just now got around to reading it. I'm so glad that she got it for me! It was a fun read. It's a different take on "magic school". Different from HP, so it feels new, but if you like HP you'll probably dig it. It was a quick read, but easy to put down & pick back up if you need to. I just ordered the second one (there will be five)!
There's a lot of controversy surrounding this book and I don't really understand what the problem is. There are some similarities to other books but no story is truly original-this book navigates the familiar concepts of magic, school, friendship, being an outsider and self discovery. Whilst not as complex or layered as The Harry Potter series (which it is frequently accused of 'ripping off'), it does feature some intriguing ideas. I liked it!
Da Cassandra Clare ebenfalls an dem Buch gearbeitet hat, habe ich gedacht: "das kann nur gut sein". Allerdings kam ich nur schwer in die Geschichte rein. Es ist zwar interessant, aber irgendwas hat mich einfach nicht so gefesselt, wie ich es mir erhofft habe. Für zwischendurch ist die Geschichte nicht schlecht, allerdings würde ich andere Bücher vorziehen.
I really had to push myself to finish this book, I started it 4 times before I finally managed it. The writing wasn't BAD, I just found way to many similarities between this and another series. I am not going to be continuing on with this series.
This book was like harry potter. I loved it really. Especially Jasper. He's the bad guy though in the story and I don't know ehy I liked him. I guess I just ship him with tamara. This book really had a twist in it.I mean,cal is supposed to be the hero right--don't lie you thought that too haha-wrong
