Casting The Gods Adrift

Guest Blogger: Olivia Sonnichsen

Eight-year-old Olivia is an avid reader. She enjoys any kind of chapter book she can get her hands on. Her favorite part of the day is coming home from school. If it's not a school day, Olivia's favorite thing to do is play computer games.

Today Olivia will be reviewing the book CASTING THE GODS ADRIFT, by Geraldine McCaughrean.

Casting  The  Gods  Adrift is a great book for  people  intrested in  ancint Eygpt. It`s also a book  I think people who  are  intrested   in animals  would  like.This book is  a  great  book  if  you  don't  think so,then  you  can  check  it  out.    


  1. awwww. She is so cute! I'm glad you have instilled reading into your is so important! :)

  2. Thanks for the recommendation, Olivia! I like history and animals. Maybe I'll like it. :o)

  3. What a great idea, Amy...not only reading, but giving reviews, too! Love it!
    Oliva, Thanks for the suggestion...I think I'll add that to my 100 book list....which I'm still trying to fill. =)

  4. adorable. I love stories about Egypt ... something to exotic and intriguing about those times.

  5. Thanks, guys! This cracked me up because she spent WAY more time messing around with the colors of the fonts than writing the actual review. The last one she wrote (ages ago) was super long, so I was expecting something of the same length this time. She hit 'publish post' before I even had a chance to look at it, too. Stinker. :D

    But honestly, this is a very well-written book. I read the first two chapters to her and was very impressed with the author's very clear, beautiful prose. Olivia read the rest without me, so now I have to go read it to find out what happens!
