What I read over Thanksgiving Break

I didn't get a chance to read that much over the break. I'm a little disappointed because I have a huge stack of books at home that I was sure I would have time to read. Oh well! Here's an overview of the ones I did get to read:
Into the Gauntlet: 39 Clues #10- by Margaret Peterson Haddix-  This was the last book in the series and it didn't disappoint. I was full of action and adventure just like the others. I won't spoil it for you, but the ending was a little bit far-fetched for me. You can definitely tell that they are setting up for another series.  AR: 4.6/9.0
Athena the Brain- by Holub, Joan- This is the first book in the new Goddess Girl series. It was easy to read and would be a great book for girls who are interested in the Lightning Thief series, especially for those who find them a little difficult to read independently. AR: 4.5/3.0
Princess of the Midnight Ball- by George, Jessica Day- This book is for lovers of princess stories with a twist of magic! I really enjoyed this book even though I tend to shy away from books with too much "magic". I was a good fast paced story that had both action and romance. I probably won't be suggesting this to any guys, but I think the girls will love it! AR 5.6/10.0

Currently reading: Belle of the Brawl: Alphas #3- by Lisi Harrison- I enjoyed the first two Alpha's books, but I am not really liking this one as much. I'm about half way through and am hoping it gets better.

On another note- I just ordered a Nook for myself and am going to "test the waters" before looking into ordering some for the school. If anyone has any ideas or information to share I'd love to hear from you!
