We enjoyed so many wonderful books this summer. We went to the library almost every week to collect the books we reserved and also pick up more books. There was once we were not able to borrow any more, because we have reached the limit of 50 in my card.
Our children devour books and we simply love the fact.
We also enjoyed some audiobooks in our 12 hour trip (back and forth) up north.
Here are some books we really like this summer.

Title: The Desperate Mission
Author: Jude Watson
Copyright: May 1, 2005
Star Wars the Desperate Mission is an exciting book. It is about an exiled Jedi Master called Obi wan Kenobi who set out to save a former Jedi apprentice named Ferus Olin after eavesdropping on a group of pilots. He accomplished his mission, along with a kid named Trever. But a deadly bounty hunter named Boba Fett was after them and Obi Wan and Ferus must survive, or the Empire's power could build more than ever.
I like this book because it reminded me of Nathan's Defense Team stories and it is very exciting. Obi Wan disguised himself as an Imperial Officer, and found out information about Order 37, which was to wipe out all people on Bellassa to capture Ferus.
Title: The Fight to Survive
Author: Terry Bisson
Copyright: May 1, 2002
Star Wars Boba Fett series: book one, The Fight to Survive is Boba Fett's story when he was ten years old. He spent a gloomy life on rainy Kamino, until one day a Jedi named Obi Wan Kenobi came. After a brutal fight, his father, Jango Fett, brought him to Geonosis, a desert planet. When a battle began, Jango bravely faced Mace Windu. But before he could do anything, he was beheaded. Boba found a secret message from Jango, telling him to find Count Dooku. When Boba found Dooku on Raxus Prime, he also found a new life.
I like this book because it recorded down everything I have seen in Star Wars episode two, Attack of the Clones. I also like it because it recorded Boba Fett's life on Kamino, his thoughts, and lots more.
Title: Dark Warning
Author: Jude Watson and John Van Fleet
Copyright: Sep 1, 2005
Star Wars: Last of the Jedi book two, Dark warning, is a book about the continuing adventures of Obi Wan Kenobi and Jedi apprentice Ferus Olin. As a sequel to The Desperate Mission, Ferus and Obi wan ventured to Ilum to find former Jedi Master Garen Muln. Ferus picked up a few lightsaber crystals on the way, with street thief kid Trever. Garen gave Ferus his worn out lightsaber hilt, but refused to come out of the cave. He told Ferus that he came to Ilum to rest with the visions of his ancestors. So Ferus left with Obi Wan on their friend Toma's starcruiser. At Tattooine, Obi Wan returned to his old life on the planet, but Ferus had one last task to accomplish: to find all of the last Jedi and bring them home.
I really enjoyed this book because Ferus got a lightsaber, and they ventured into Ilum, a planet I am very curious about. I also liked it because there was a happy ending, not an ending that left me in a questioning manner, like the previous book.
Title: The Path to Truth
Author: Jude Watson and A. Buelow
Copyright: Sep 1, 2001
Star Wars: Jedi Quest, The Path to Truth is Anakin Skywalker's story between Star Wars episodes one and two. Teenager Anakin Skywalker was a promising apprentice to Jedi Knight Obi Wan Kenobi, but yet he still had much to learn. After completing a quest on Ilum, Anakin was captured by space pirate Krayn. Obi Wan must do all he could to save Anakin from cruel Krayn and undercover Jedi Siri Tachi, but at the same time, Anakin taught the cruel slave master some lessons. He also found that Siri was on his side, and together they attempted to break out. And soon, Anakin killed Krayn.
I enjoy reading this book because it had Anakin's quest in Ilum, and some tricky situations that led the book to excitement. Obi Wan also encountered a brutal fight with Rash'tah, Krayn's loyal wookie!

Title: The Princess in Black
Author: Shannon and Dean Hale
This book is about Princess Magnolia's secret of actually being the Princess in Black. When Duchess Wig-tower came to visit, she did not believe prim and perfect Princess Magnolia had a secret. The clever princess even went to monster land (which was where a princess in black should work) without the nosy duchess uncovering her big secret!
I like this book because clever Princess Magnolia wouldn't let Duchess Wig-tower uncover her secret! And Duchess Wig-tower would keep snooping around but find no secret! This book is exciting, royal, and very very fun!
