Fluke by Christopher Moore
Fluke: Or, I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings
by Christopher Moore (Goodreads Author)
recommended for: Christopher Moore fans
Rate this book
Clear rating
So far, this is my least favorite Christopher Moore book. It's still entertaining, but the plot is rather more fantastical and a little less grounded in reality than perhaps some of his other books, which is fine. It was just somewhat different than ...more

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander
Rate this book
Clear rating
Fun little read for Harry Potter fans; just reconfirms that much like Tolkien, J.K. Rowling has invented her very own universe and all the things within it.

Quidditch Through the Ages

So, in the increasing hysteria mounting over the advent of the final Harry Potter book, I have been reading anything I can get my hands on before we all know how it ends and the fun is over! This teeny little book is quite funny and reads in about 10 ...more

This is one of the rare occasions where I picked up a book after seeing parts of the film adaptation. (I must admit, John Lithgow portraying a transvestite named Roberta is some good stuff!) John Irving always intrigues me because of his mystifying ...more

I read this book because 1) I loved The World According to Garp and 2) some kid in a high school speech team competition did an excerpt and despite his horrible performance, I found it intriguing. I loved this book, even though it seemed a little ...more

Mirror Mirror by Gregory Maguire
Mirror Mirror
by Gregory Maguire
recommended for: ?
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is by far the least appealing and satisfying of the Maguire fairy tales I've read. I'm not really sure where to begin! I was all set to devour this retelling of Snow White, set within a beautiful Italian landscape and with the wicked ...more

Wicked by Gregory Maguire

Perhaps the most famously revised of Maguire's fairytales (and now a wildly successful musical), Wicked is the E True Hollywood Story of The Wizard of Oz. We witness the story of the "wicked" witch from her perspective, and the seedy underbelly of ...more
