D-Day: The Battle for Normandy by Antony Beevor

Welcome to Maci and Zoe Read Books!

Maci and Zoe Read Books Hello, welcome to our blog. We are twins in the 12th grade and are thrilled to share our love of books with you. We just started high school, even though it is a lot of hard work, it is fun. Maci plays the trombone and Zoe plays the trumpet in our school Marching Band. When we are not reading, doing homework, or practicing music we like to go on adventures with our Girl Scout troop.

Our favorite thing to do is to read. We read every chance we get. Our favorite genres are Historical Fiction and Realistic Fiction. We love making connections through our books, which makes biographies and history books fun as well. We also like the challenge of Non-Fiction books that are long and boring. We will read almost anything that is handed to us.

Since we are twins, many people have trouble telling us apart, hopefully while you read our reviews and learn our taste in books you will (have fun figuring out our different tastes and styles in reading and writing) also get to know us individually as well.

You can follow us on Twitter @maciandzoe or on Facebook at facebook.com/maciandzoe we will post links for all of our new posts there.

Happy reading, we are so excited you have found us.

Maci & Zoe
