Books! Let's talk about books today. Or rather, I'll talk about books and you'll read maybe halfway through this post and get bored. Terrific plan.
The following is another drive-by review of some of the books I've read over the past few months. I'm not going to talk much about synopses or anything, but each title will be a link so you can read more about it if you're so inclined. You can find a way to thank me later for not talking about all the books I've read over this long, loooong winter. As always, I do accept cookies as currency.
The Boy in the Suitcase by Lene Kaaberol and Agnete Friis
Savvy by Ingrid Law
Delightful YA fiction. Sucked me right in, couldn't put it down, quick read. Loved, loved, loved the characters. Perfect reprieve after something like The Boy in the Suitcase. Winner of the Newbery Honor Award.
I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai with Christina Lamb
Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions by Lysa Terkeurst
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin
You know what? I forgot I said I'd break this up into a series of posts. What a splendid idea. It's nice to know I do have those every once in a while, even if I promptly forget them. I'll try to come back and post some more books tomorrow.
