Read, Run, Ramble

I'm just a girl on a mission - a mission to read many books, run (walk) many miles and ramble about it all! 


My main blog is on Tumblr, and I also have companion Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads pages.

The Maze of Bones (The 39 Clues Series #1)

The Maze of Bones - Rick Riordan This is a great book for children...very intriguing and mysterious. The book weaves in historical characters and facts making history seem not quite as boring, I would think, in a child's mind (at least it would have worked for me). In addition, several geographical and scientific elements are introduced; again, showing kids that all education doesn't have to be textbook boring! I have only read the first book; I haven't explored the clue packs or the website in order to determine what they provide to the storyline. I enjoyed this book and think it is a series to read...I will be interested to see how the voice or writing style changes as each book has a new author.
