Bloodhound by Tamora Pierce

Clear rating
Having been hooked to the Tortall books since I was eleven (yikes-- 17 years ago), I've been faithful by following up on the latest Beka book. I think that Pierce's writing has improved in terms of figurative language (they are certainly getting long ...more

In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson
Rate this book
Clear rating
This was my first Bill Bryson book, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not only did I appreciate Bryson's witty use of language, but I also learned a lot about Australia (and now want to visit it more than ever). If you are interested in Australian history ...more

Shakespeare by Bill Bryson

I found this book very interesting and a refresher for Shakespeare's known life as well as events and lifestyles in Elizabethan and Jacobean times. It offered many view-points and was easy to follow.

Clear rating
I was very pleased with this book; having never heard of it before, I bought it at the Bronte Parsonage Museum thinking, "I should give Anne a try." After reading this, I think I'll read more of the "obscure" Bronte novels. What I loved best was the ...more

The Shamer's Daughter by Lene Kaaberbøl
Rate this book
Clear rating
I thought this book was gripping, the characters interesting, and the idea very clever. The chapters have many cliffhangers, and you really care about the characters. I read the first chapter to my students in Britain, and they were frustrated that t ...more

Ratha's Creature by Clare Bell
Rate this book
Clear rating
Despite the cheesy tag line on the back of this book, I thoroughly enjoyed rereading it (I first read this book when I was 12). The description is amazing, the characters interesting, and the idea more or less original (despite all the cat books that ...more
