My Never Ending List

I read almost every genre & I enjoy venturing into unfamiliar territory. As a library volunteer, I'm constantly bringing home novels. Being a substitute teacher, I read lots of YA & children's books.  

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Something Wicked This Way Comes - Ray Bradbury
The circus is coming! The circus is coming! The boys discover the flyer swirling in the yard, a circus coming this late in the year is just unheard of. Alone in their rooms, the two boys hear a noise in the distance, it’s a train and the call of the calliope. It’s three a.m. and the circus is pulling into town! Sliding down the drainpipe, the boys set off to watch the excitement unfold. There is a sinister, mysterious feeling as the boys sneak off to view this spectacular event, their day sure has been exciting.
 
Earlier today, the boys told the salesman that they had no money yet he gave them a lightning rod. He told them it was free. He was adamant about Jim putting the rod on his house, he had foreseen a fierce storm that would soon be approaching their area.
