Surly's Reading List, Taking care of Me

40 Books by 40 – Theodore Boone: The Abduction by John Grisham

Even though I am 33 years old, I still like to read adolescent literature. Its my hangover from the Harry Potter series. I didn’t want to read for like a year after the last book. I was too sad to invest in another set of characters. Ok, maybe it wasn’t that bad. I was never interested in reading Twilight, and I never found the motivation to read the Hunger Games series. When I was at the library with my kids, I found that John Grisham had started a young adult series called Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer. I figured I would give it a shot. I enjoy John Grisham’s novels, and they are usually a quick read. I liked the first book in the series. It’s about a kid whose parents are lawyers and has a vast knowledge of law. More than most adults! He gets caught up in the midst of a murder trial when he finds out the truth about what really happened.

Look for new young adult literature to try out? John Grisham's young adult series follows kid lawyer Theodore Boone. Click here to read about the second book in the series "Theodore Boone: The Abduction."

Book number 10 in my reading goal is Theodore Boone: The Abduction, which is the second book in the series. The case gets personal for Theo as his best friend Amy is abducted from her home. After a few days, Theo is unconvinced the police are searching for the right suspect. He begins his own search with the help of friends and his Uncle Ike, a former lawyer, will he is able to track her down with the help of social media?

As I suspected, this book was a quick and easy read. It wasn’t the most philosophical book I have ever read but it was fun to get lost in a cute young adult book again. Theo is a smart, charming, and caring young man, and it’s fun to read about him rather than the snotty, over-acting teens you see on tv.

What have you been reading lately? What’s on your summer reading list? Have a great week everyone!
