A story of a blind French girl, much loved by her family and an orphan German boy during WWII. Their stories circle each other an intersect sweetly and briefly. I love WWII stories and this one had rich, full characters and a storyline that lets the ...more

Easy good fun! I really love books with strong but deeply wounded female protagonists. I love books set in Portland. I love books that are fast paced and make me stay up later than I want to because I need to know what happens next. These are all the ...more

Laurel Hamilton writes a lot of these and some are better than others. This was not one of the strongest. Too much droning on about Anita's love life and not enough good vampire/were animal action.

I like the young adult dystopian genre, and Maze Runner (the first book in a series) hits all the right notes. That said, I didn't find it as compelling as some of the other series I've read. The adolescent boy language got tiresome after awhile, but ...more

I really adored "Sense of an Ending" and hoped for more of the same richness with this book. I didn't like it quite as well, but I appreciated the honesty with which Julian Barnes shared his grief after his wife's death. It was a notable transition f ...more
