Oh, sorry... It does deserve it. It's funny. I like it better every time I read it, and I still cry when Charlotte dies at the end... It's a classic for a reason. I think everyone who reads it can relate on some level, no matter what age they are when they read it.

I was a little disappointed in this one. It felt like the first half of a book, rather than an entire book on its own. I adore series books (no worrying about what to read next!) but I am getting a little irritated by a trend I am starting to see where the "series" is really one or two good plot ideas stretched out thin. I much prefer a completely self-contained story in each book, with an over-arching plot across the series. Tamora Pierce is a great example of someone who does this well. Ending each book with a cliffhanger seems like its cheating to me. I should want to read the next book in the series because I loved the world and the characters, not just because I want to find out what happens next.

Wow, sorry, when I started writing I didn't realize how strongly I felt!

Wow, this was a great book and definitely worthy of it's 4+ star rating (and the Printz Honor). I loved Vera's witty sarcasm and her dad's flow charts were a charming and amusing touch. I loved the role-playing scene with the therapist. I would absolutely recommend this book to others.

Ann | 88 comments 4.2 Notes from an Accidental Band Geek by Erin Dionne While the entire book isn't set in November, marching in the Thanksgiving Day parade is a huge plot point. Pages: 304 genre: music

4.4 Impossible by Nancy Werlin They travel from Massachusetts to Canada. pages: 384 genre: folk/fairy tale

1.3 Locke & Key, Volume 4: Keys to the Kingdom by Joe Hill pages: 160 genre: horror/suspense

I absolutely agree with the 4.5 star rating. This graphic novel has had me hooked from the very first and this latest compilation is the best yet. The tension just keeps ratcheting up. While it is a plot-driven story, the characters all seem very real to me, reacting to their current life circumstances in ways that seem very real to me, making a lot of cruel or stubborn or stupid choices that absolutely make sense in terms of who they are and how they relate to one another.

Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King 336 pages

At first I was a little wary about this book. The jacket description does not really explain what the book is about. I listened to it, rather than read it, but I did go back and look at the flow charts. This is a very unique book in both format and voice and I do believe it deserves a 4+ star rating. King does a wonderful job of revealing plot points at a deliberate pace, keeping the reader pushing forward to the end in order to get the whole story behind Vera and Charlie.

It was really good. As a parent, I found it very thought provoking. I think it would be for teens too, but from a very different pov.


message 36: by Amy (new)

Amy You should definitely read The Fox Inheritance. Sort of a continuation of the series but from a different perspective. I really liked Adoration. Definitely could see how parents would want to preserve their child but in some ways it's completely crossing a line.

1.3 Read a book that's at least 4 star-rated on goodreads and with your post tell us if you think it deserves the rank.

Last Sacrifice - 594 pages

Genre: Paranormal

This book currently has a 4.5 star rating on Goodreads. Do I think that this one deserves this rating? No. I would say it is a 3 at best. I think this books rating was hyped up by the series as a whole.

I don't think I should have such a dislike for a main character after following them through 6 books as I do for Rose. She never seemed to grow, the growing that took place seemed artificial and still rather immature when looking at the larger picture (specifics that I cannot go into detail since they would be MAJOR spoilers).

Amy 2.4 Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick 438 pages (romance genre)

I love Becca Fitpatrick. I fell in love with her writing in Hush Hush. I loved how she was able to infuse her writing with laugh out loud sarcasm when the events in the books were serious. In Silence, the characters are very different than in the first two books. Patch has completely changed and I think definitely mature (which is funny because he's "old" anyway). Nora is the same spunky character but with a major negative in her favor. The author really does a good job of making the story flow and keep the reader's attention.

The girl in the story spends some time being locked up in a children's home.

1.3 Sideways Stories from Wayside School by Louis Sachar (142 pages)

I absolutely loved this book. It's one of our readers' choice nominees for my state and it definitely deserves to be rated even higher than a 4. :)

2.4 Down the Mysterly River by Bill Willingham (333 pages)
Genre: Fairy Tale

I absolutely adore Bill Willingham. He writes the Fables Graphic Novels as well as has another book called Peter & Max. His writing is superb and really knows how to create an elaborate fantasy world.

1.1 Bunnicula by Deborah Howe (128 pages)

I added to the discussion. I can't believe I haven't read this one before! I will have to try more in the series.
