The Five Books of Jesus by James Goldberg
" This is one of those rare, amazing books that I would recommend to anyone, that makes me want to buy a stack of copies so I can give one to everyone I know as a Christmas present. I want to interrupt people I see reading other works and say, "That... " Read more of this review »

I loved this book. It was gripping and interesting and personal and about something so crazy and important. Fast paced and not dry at all. This is a great read. (Not sure why it is YA. The length? It is not dumbed down or anything.)
Bomb by Steve Sheinkin
" 4/26/13 ** Wow! This is history, but told with a strong narrative voice and attention to the quirks, strengths, and foibles of the characters involved. The book essentially follows three story lines - the Americans' and Germans' races to build an... " Read more of this review »

Matched by Ally Condie
" As seen on The Readventurer


First thing first. I think Ally Condie owes at least half of her seven-figure paycheck to Lois Lowry. The entire dystopian world is lifted directly from Lowry's The Giver. Almost everything interesting in Matched is very... " Read more of this review »

I really liked this. It was totally unique in its style from anything I've read; kind of poetic (in a readable way) and mystical, even while being about animals (which loses me sometimes). I kept thinking about its themes and characters and tragedies...more

This book was kind of dark, but kind of compelling in its own way. It was really unique and I enjoyed the read. Bod was a great main character.

I hadn't read this since high school, and I checked it out since I'd like to see the movie. I really enjoyed it! (Way more than I did in 10th grade.) Bilbo is such a great, unique main character with unexpected strengths and hilarious weaknesses. Thi...more

I was really disappointed in this book just for the reason that it had a scene in it. I enjoyed the other two so much, probably partly because I kind of thought she'd go there but she never did. Maybe I'm too hard on it but it spoiled the entire book...more
