Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Jena, August 12, 2012

This book offers a little bit of everything, and it's handled most gracefully. (Time travel can be so hard to write about.) Eagerly awaiting the sequel!

Changing Diapers: The Hip Mom's Guide to Modern Cloth Diapering by Kelly Wels
Changing Diapers: The Hip Mom's Guide to Modern Cloth Diapering

Jena, August 12, 2012

A handy overview of modern cloth diapers. A great resource for those interested in cloth diapers but not quite sure where to start--especially since the world of cloth diapering is now way more complicated than prefolds, pins, and rubber pants. Those who are already familiar, especially those who read cloth diapering blogs, aren't likely to learn anything new.

Bossypants by Tina Fey
Bossypants

Jena, August 12, 2012

I really enjoyed reading about how Tina Fey came into her career. She's as funny in the book as she is on TV, and she brings a lot of insight to her life, as well. Kinda wish I'd gotten the audio version, though--I heard part of it on the radio & laughed & laughed & laughed...

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
Water for Elephants

Jena, August 12, 2012

I don't see what the buzz was about. It was a good enough story, and a very quick read, but I'm at a loss as to why so many people absolutely loved it.

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins
Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3)

Jena, August 12, 2012

I realize that not everyone will be pleased with this last book. It lacks some of the intensity of the first two books, as Katniss is now fighting not just for her life but for a better life for everyone. The ending, though not as happy an ending as readers probably hoped for, makes sense. It takes into account the growth (and irrevocable damages) of characters, which was probably my biggest concern (that the book's ending would somehow undo all that character growth).
