Jess, Chunk, and the Road Trip to Infinity by Kristin Elizabeth Clark

This is the first book that I have read directly from the perspective of someone that is transgender. I felt that I have learned a lot, about the importance of proper pronouns, as well us understanding the fear of bigots...

I absolutely loved this book! Echo by Pam Muñoz Ryan is an amazing book. It is a story that starts off with a story needing to be written and follows a harmonica on its journey to touch people’s lives. It...

American Ace by Marilyn Nelson

American Ace by Marilyn Nelson

This book is about identity. It is told completely in prose, which makes it very fast to read. The small size and fast story does not take away from the depth and the message that Marilyn Nelson is showing. This...

The Painted Bird by Jerzy Kosinski

The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison

The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison

The Bluest Eye is an emotionally taxing book to read. This is due to the heavy topics that Toni Morrison calls into question, but also her writing style. It makes me question the words of every other book I pick...

Being There by Jerzy Kosiński

This is once again a book that I have had to read for school, but I did not find it dreadfully boring (as some school books are). I enjoyed it and it relates very well to the current political situation....

Echo by Pam Muñoz Ryan

It has been a very long time sense I have read an entire book in one day, and this book broke that streak. It felt really great to read for so long, as well as it was super enjoyable because...

Samurai Rising: The Epic Life of Minamoto Yoshitsune by Pamela S. Turner

I am disappointed to say that I did not like this book as much as I wanted too. I was excited to read a historical fiction book about history that was not European or American. I was excited to get...

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
