The Magic Circle Katherine Neville(my book) reread and I don’t know why dan brown style convoluted plot – she has better books.
Splendors and Glooms Laura Amy Schlitz (KLB) children’s book that creeped me out – oliver twistian world. Dirt, poverty,extreme wealthy. puppets. Truly evil villains that do horrible things to people and die horribly. Hard to put down , well written and made it hard to sleep .
Gooseberry Bluff community college – part 4 (KS) loving the book – finding the format frustrating — every time I get a new one just enough time has passed that I end up going back a few pages.
Rosemary and Rue Seanan Mcguire (LB) She wrote Feed, this is her first book. It has some first book flaws, but the first part of the book is a hard. emotionally hard. A gutsy place to start a book. The flaw- really she has to explain everything – all the different creatures of Fairie. I like it, but it does interfere with the flow. And I am very glad I have the second one home .
A local habitation Seanan McGuire (LB) Quite good, but a little more complex and move a little slower.
Gooseberry Bluff community college -part 5 (KS) Really I can wait til I have them all and just read them end to end. I know suspense novels end chapters on cliff hangers – but when you can’t go onto the next… I am really enjoying every minute of it, however.
Swordfights and lullabies Debra Greary (KB) which light morsel ( which means short story ) fun.
The Wonderful wizard of OZ L. Frank Baum (KB) Neve read it , so I did. Wierder than the movie. and I think even though it is slightly old fashion – the language would be accessible to most children.
Heist Society Ally Carter (KLB) What fun! Different than I expected , but very good. Kat Bishop – has escaped from her con artist family and become – a boarding school student. But she doesn’t get to stay out of that life for long…A really good con/heist novel.
