Kelly The first book I read for this category was The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. I gave it 1 star. I did not like this book at all. There was a lot of symbolism and make believe going on with the children, so I know some of it went over my head. I was a bit mislead by the synopsis of this book, because I was expecting it to be TOTALLY different than what it was. Thank goodness it was only 178 pages.

The second book I read was "The Light Between Oceans" by M. L. Stedman. This was a great book and I am excited to see the movie now. 5 out of 5 stars.

Erin Gray (texerin) | 13 comments I read The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt which I really enjoyed this sort of western noir, and Not Without My Sister: The True Story of Three Girls Violated and Betrayed by Those They Trusted by Kristina Jones, Celeste Jones, and Juliana Buhring which was a fascinating (and disturbing) story of three sisters who escaped an abusive cult.

Bev (confuzzledom) | 9 comments I read Secrets by Jacqueline Wilson for my singular word. Clearly I am not the target audience for this book! Some kids books are good reads as adults, this isn't really but I can see why a 10 year old girl would enjoy it (I only read it because I'm trying to read everything on the BBC Big Read list).

For the same word in the plural, I read The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I don't know what I was expecting with this book, but this wasn't it! I really enjoyed this one.
