Introducing the Kidsmith Reviewers

A group of our local and most avid readers, we meet twice a month to talk about books, write about books, and share our latest favorites. Keep your eyes open for the recommendations in the kids section and discover what our local kids are crazy about!


Title: Walking Dead Series
Author: Robert Kirkman

A series straight out of your worst nightmares. Amazing!

Title: Dragonball
Author: Akira Toriyama

A hilarious manga full of explosions and all out ka-me-ha-me-has. A must read!


Title: Skink No Surrender
Author: Carl Hiaasen
Pub Date:  Sept. 23 2014

This book will leave you in suspense and you will never know what is coming next. The characters are great, fun, and you can easily put yourself in their shoes.


Title: Skink No Surrender

Pub Date: Sept. 23 2014

I really enjoyed Skink No Surrender because the characters were really silly and the plot is awesome!


Title: Loki’s Wolves: Blackwell Pages book 1
Author: K L Armstrong and M A Marr

Like Percy Jackson reborn, mythology meets modern day and a teenage boy must stop the end of the world. Full of action and humor.

Title: Half Bad
Author: Sally Green

If you like fantasy this is the book for you. It can be dark at times so its not for the faint hearted. Imagine your dad was Voldemort and your mom is Glinda, would you be respected? Would you be treated like your dad or your mom? The answers are in Half Bad.


Title: Dreamwood
Author: Heather Mackey
Pub Date: June 6 2014

Set in the past where they can barely afford electrical lamps...
Just Read It!

Title: I Am Number Four
Author: Pittacus Lore

Exciting aliens vs. aliens fantasy in the modern world. I can’t wait until August when the fifth book comes out!


Title: The Drowned Cities
Author: Paolo Bacigalupi

The half man from Shipbreaker teams up with a lost orphan looking for her friend. After this the Drowned Cities will never be the same.


Title: The Thickety: A Path Begins
Author: J A White
LIke a combination of the Lord of the Rings and The Witch of Blackbird Pond, this book draws you in and doesn’t let you out until you have made it to the ending; and then you are just waiting for the sequel to come out.

Title: Wildwood
Author: Colin Meloy

Similar to the Golden Compass and Narnia, this novel takes you and doesn’t let you out of its word filled embrace until you have read from the beginning of the first book through the 1500 pages of the whole story.
