Huh, I Thought That Book Would Be better Than It Was

Hayes Oh dear.... is "Mistress" going to be like "Physick Book"? I even bought me a copy!

[image error]

I haven't read the first one but listened to the second The Serpent's Tale (Mistress of the Art of Death, #2) by Ariana Franklin. Meh!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Mistress of the Art of Death was sold to me as the best thing since sliced bread. It's an adequate medieval mystery, I guess. I found the heroine somewhat annoying.


message 4: by Hayes (new)

Hayes I got the sliced bread sell too... I'll get to it one of these days.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads To be fair, my mother liked it better than I did. I suspect it also wasn't oversold to her.


message 6: by Jen (last edited May 26, 2010 08:00AM) (new)

Jen Why is Wicked at the top of the list? I thought it was very clever. Maguire's other books are witty and interesting as well. I would put all Twilight books at the top of the list myself.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I guess it's at the top of the list because a lot of people read it, and were disappointed.


message 8: by Chrissy (new)

Chrissy I'm very surprised Mockingjay isn't number one...


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

Is Mockingjay really that bad?


message 10: by Phillip (new)

Phillip yeah it definetly is!


message 11: by Zack (new)

Zack Reagin I'm surprised I'm the first person to add Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist considering how much attention it was given. I found it to be no more than one of those "self-help" books which insist that you can achieve your goals simply by wanting them enough, or to put it as it is stated in the book, "When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." The only difference between this book and similar books of this ilk is that this one had a plot, though it felt very clichéd and underdeveloped. I was very disappointed, because I had expected much better. Not only that, but the overall message of the book irked me due to its superficiality.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I didn't vote for it because I have been lucky enough not to read it, as it sounds like a book I would hate.
