The Actor and the Housewife
I really liked this one. Sure, it's implausible, and it's not *really* chick lit, but it hit home with me. It is the story of a woman who happens to h ...more

I adore this book. Not only is it Austen's most satisfying love story, it's got the absolute, hands-down, most romantic letter ever written. I'm total ...more

The Rosie Project (Don Tillman #1)
It was sweet, but I think I expected more from the hype.

The Snow Child
Quiet and magical (but not fantasy magic). Almost made me want to visit Alaska. In the winter.

The Bishop’s Wife
The most honest portrait of Mormon women that I've read in a very long time.

Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances
I prefer Gaiman in audio, but he's still quite wonderful in print.

The Host (The Host, #1)
This is another instance where I need a 1/2 star. It's not a 3, but not really a 4 either....

I liked it better than Eclipse, but not as well as Twilig

What If...?
I like to think I'm liberal. I like to think I'm enlightened. I like to think I'm religious. But I couldn't read this. Too preachy. A diatribe against ...more

The Goose Girl (The Books of Bayern, #1)
Hale's first book, and in my opinion, the best of the Bayern series. I liked her twists and turns on a lesser-known fairy tale (she's good at lesser-k ...more

The Undaunted : The Miracle of the Hole-in-the-Rock Pioneers
It's a historical fiction book and there are *footnotes* and *endnotes*. Enough said.

Anecdotes of Destiny & Ehrengard
The book has two brilliant stories: Babbette's Feast and Ehrengard. The rest is weird or boring (so it all averages out to a 3). Anyway, worth finding ...more
