The Sweetheart Rules by Shirley Jump
Rate this book
Clear rating
This just didn't hit the right spot for me. Competently written, but I'm not sure I want to bother with the other books. My favorite character, by far, is Greta. And I'm not sure who the Sweetheart Sisters are--the three women and their column? While ...more

Novik's fans of her Temeraire series may have been disappointed when Uprooted came out, but it certainly won her new fans, me included. As soon as I heard about Spinning Silver, I wanted to read it and was not disappointed. In fact, I like it better- ...more

I was surprised that, except for about 2 people, everyone in my book group really liked the book--and one person was raving about it. It is fascinating how Christopher has tied together human evolution, the running shoe industry, ultra-marathoners, a ...more

Last Christmas in Paris by Hazel Gaynor
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is almost 4 stars, but I thought the story dragged a bit. It does an excellent job in putting us smack dab in the middle of WW I and the effects it had on the soldiers, civilians, and the home front in England. There were a few loose ends that s ...more

Another favorite reread. The side story of Tory's brother--which is continued in the final book of the series--and his interactions with Rocket are terrific. It does a good job revealing what it's like for a teen on the streets. And Gert is a fabulou ...more
