I have a question about theme 3: The theme you choose for each letter must be a word in the title like in the example?


Jackie - Fire & Ice Book Reviews (jackiefireicebookreviews) No, it can be in the title, the main story of the book, or on the cover.

Do you have to go in alphabetical order??


Jackie - Fire & Ice Book Reviews (jackiefireicebookreviews) That would be nice, but you don't really have to.

Jekel loves Hyde is a modern version of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (maybe we call this book a sequel of the clasic from Robert Louis Stevenson) with a clever twist and touch of dark romance. Is was nice, not extraordinary but good for a rainy Sunday afternoon...

About What Really Happened In Peru: Is a short book that tell us the adventures of three magicians and try to explain (whit no success) why Marcus Bane was ¿kicked off? from this country. It's not a memorable book.

I read Shrinking Violet because a saw Radio Rebel, the Disnay Channel Movie but they are very diferent and I like the film very much so I have mixed feelings about the book. However, Shrinking Violet is depper than the movie and make me want to read the autobiography of Hellen Keller and see if I found as inspirer as Tessa does.

So I finaly read Nacida bajo el signo del toro by Florencia Bonelli. She usually writes Romance or Historical Romance and this is her first YA novel. It's good but it doesn't feel like a YA novel, the characters don't seem to have 16 years old to me. Many things feel so fake!
But is a nice story about a girl who discovers in her astrological sign how she is. The title can be traslated like Born under the Bull's sign because she is born in May and her astrological sign is Taurus.

My G is a play I'm reading with my students: La Malasangre by Griselda Gambaro. It's a love story dated in 1840 that shows in the violence of the father a symbol of the political whether in Argentina in 1980. I don't know if you can understand me because is hard to explain how this play can ser all those references to our recent History.
I have never read it before so...


Jackie - Fire & Ice Book Reviews (jackiefireicebookreviews) You're doing a really good job! :-)
