Smoke in the Sun

The plot weaves together disparate voices into a surprisingly melodious chorus.

As I Lay Dying

The sheer lack of anything positive in the plot and intentionally obscure writing makes me wonder why I bothered reading it.

A Wrinkle in Time

It’s interesting and somewhat good, but it could have been so much better.

Eyes Like Stars

This book has some wicked awesome dialogue and an incredibly unique idea behind it, so…if you don’t mind a strained plot and a mediocre main character, then go for it. 

The Girl in the Tower

This book articulates the power of womankind…and the power of love—of all kinds.

Just Ella

This book is about a girl who forges her own destiny; she needs no Prince Charming to do it for her.

Ivanhoe | England

Ivanhoe by Walter Scott is an intriguing mix of romance, historical fiction, adventure, and legend.

King John | England

Not Shakespeare’s best effort, but it does nicely dramatize ancient history.
