Harry Potter Boxset (Harry Potter, #1-7)

The Mischief of the Mistletoe (Pink Carnation, #7)

Made it to chapter four and felt accomplished. Turnip is a bumbling idiot and all I could imagine is Hugh Grant portraying his usual charmingly befudd...more

Divergent (Divergent #1)

The concept has more substance than the story. . .

I Am the Messenger

Great story.

Could have been about 200 pages shorter.

If it wasn't phrased like an annoying Facebook status update.

However. . .

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
3.72
Some stories can paint such a wonderful picture, this is one of them. The world building is phenomenal and the character details are enchanting.

A Wizard of Earthsea (Earthsea Cycle, #1)

Utopia
3.46
Utopia is progressive for it's time, and a warning for it's future. Communism disguised as fantasy/travelogue.
Just a tad boring too...
