Jessica (covered_in_rust) | 27 comments 1. Agnes Grey- Anne Bronte

4/5

I liked the writing and am looking forward to reading more from the Brontes in general. Heard from many that this would be a slog to get through, but I didn't find that to be the case at all.

Jessica (covered_in_rust) | 27 comments 2. Moon Over Soho- Ben Aaronovitch

3/5

Decent story but definitely suffering from second book-itis. Didn't care for the odd love story.

Jessica (covered_in_rust) | 27 comments 3. A Dark and Twisting Path- Julia Buckley

4/5

Good. I'm ready for the Sam West Vs. Nikon story to die, though. Too much.

Jessica (covered_in_rust) | 27 comments 4. A Gentleman in Moscow- Amor Towles

3/5

Interesting story. Not how I thought it would go. Expected the main character to be less sympathetic.


message 12: by Jessica (new)

Jessica (covered_in_rust) | 27 comments 5. Faust- Joann Wolfgang von Goethe

4/5

Very awesome. Don't know why it took me this long to read it.


message 13: by Jessica (new)

Jessica (covered_in_rust) | 27 comments 6. The Dispatcher- John Scalzi

5/5

John Scalzi can pretty much do no wrong for me. I listened to the audio of this read by Zachary Quinto. Fantastic job.
