I started reading The Inquisitor’s Tale by Adam Gidwitz with my kids tonight.

Will wanted to try this book but Mia was grumpy about it (“Can we just read a book with NO magic in it for once?” - valid request, actually) but she finally agreed that we could just try the first chapter tonight since we needed to read something. After we finished the first chapter, she started chanting “More! More!” and I had to read them half of the next chapter.
P.S. Posted this status on Goodreads because I guess I’m back onto compulsively noting all my reading updates on Goodreads again.
