So what did everyone choose for their explosive read last week? Whatever it was, I hope you had a fun and relaxing Fourth of July weekend!
This week's Amazing read challenge is the classic battle of good vs. evil, hero vs. villain. It could be a classic superhero comic book, a murder mystery, or a book by or about a personal hero of your own. As always, get creative! Half the fun is seeing how everyone interprets the challenge.
I haven't chosen a side yet, myself. In the hero's corner is The Girls of Atomic City  by Denise Kiernan - the true story of the women who worked at the Oak Ridge, TN atomic facility during WWII. In the villain's corner is The Shining Girls  by Lauren Beukes, which is about a time-traveling serial killer.
For kids, there are lots of fun superhero books  including the adorable Buzz Boy and Fly Guy  by Tedd Arnold. This would also be a great challenge for kids of all ages to re-read their favorite entry in the Harry Potter or Percy Jackson series.
