I'm not a Twitter tweeter, but I thought it'd be fun to try a different format for my latest round of mini reviews. These snippets might not quite be under 140 characters, but they're written in the spirit of Twitter: short and sweet!
One marriage, two perspectives. A slow first half but a huge reveal and a fast-paced second half. I didn’t like it as much as President Obama did, but I’m glad I read it.
How can history, England, war, books & MAGIC be so fucking boring? It finally picked up toward the end, but the first 550 pages were shockingly dull!
Dual narrative set in WWII and present-day London. Amazing plot, lovable characters, partly told in letters. Exemplary historical fiction & one of my faves this year.
Brave, sweet little boy narrates first experiences with the world after spending entire life held captive in a windowless room. Sad, happy, at times exasperating. Only gave it 4 stars but would say it’s a must-read.
Even better than book 1. Great continuation of the fun fantasy trilogy about four parallel universe Londons, magic, friends & an epic good vs. evil battle.
Squee! A completely delightful, easy to read, totally enthralling fantasy novel. I can't remember the last time I've been so utterly wrapped up in a story!
Magic + science. Uber-quirky & creatively genre-blending. But apparently forgettable, because 5 months later I have almost zero memory of the plot. I know I liked it when I read it!
