I mostly read this one—or rather, listened to the free audiobook version of this one—because it’s a staple that all literate people should read. And because my book club told me to.

But I was pleasantly surprised. Collins doesn’t have quite the gift

This is my first Brandon Sanderson book, and it did not disappoint. I found it hard to engage with at the beginning—-probably due to the high learning curve for the magic system—-but I morphed into an avid fan about halfway through. Harry Potter meet ...more

I keep vacillating between 3 and 4 stars, so I figure I'll bump this one up - if only for the merits of that climactic scene between Kate and Henry. Dang. Donaldson hit that one out of the park.

Regency romance isn't really my thing, but I had fun wit

"That time the Pope was a woman" just became #1 on my list of awesome historical conspiracy theories. And Cross's novel more than does the event justice. It's suspenseful, inspiring, and defiant as hell. LOVED it!

Pope Joan is the most effective piece

This is a cute historical fiction romp that labels itself a "Regency Romance"... so of course I found it at Barnes & Noble in the Religion section.

I assume it found its way there because Moore is LDS (Mormon) and the book is published by an LD

This is probably the first YA book I've ever awarded 5 stars. AMAZING! I mean, it's a Newberry winner, so it should be. I found it superbly inspiring--a story about a ragtag bunch of down-to-earth, genuinely good people who are trying to do the right ...more

A fun YA adventure/love story. It doesn't take itself too seriously - Cabot isn't trying to change the world or anything - but it's a breezy, exciting read. And I love her turn of phrase. Adolescent, but clever.

The plot follows Ellie and her friends

I'm not sure if I was having an acute fit of literary snobbery or just PMSing, but this is clearly not a 3-star book (as I originally rated it). I re-read it in anticipation of the last two movies, and it's a 5-star all the way!

Also, could it be poss

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
