A Tale of Two Cities (Penguin Classics) by Charles Dickens

A little slow at first, but wow does it sure get exciting. My favorite classic to date!

Darth Plagueis: Star Wars (Star Wars) by James Luceno
Darth Plagueis: Star Wars (Star Wars)

Kacey, June 16, 2014

This book is called Darth Plagueis, but it should really be called Darth Sidious. The book begins with the rise of Darth Plagueis, who I found to be so intriguing and different from Darth Bane. However, soon after we meet a young man on Naboo, Palpatine, and the story's focus abruptly changes. While the backstory of Darth Sidious is interesting, I was bummed out there wasn't more about Darth Plagueis. Story is still entertaining and weaves canon history and movie events seamlessly.

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

Kacey, May 15, 2014

After greatly enjoying the movie with Brad Pitt, I wanted to read the book is was based on. As my friends had warned me, the book was quite different from the movie, however it was still fun to read. World War Z is written as a series of interviews with survivors of the zombie war. Together these short stories weave an account of how the undead appeared around the world and how the world eventually fought back. Brooks creates very real and interesting characters who each coped with the war in different ways. Everyone should read this book so we can learn from our fictitious mistakes and be fully prepared for the real World War Z!

The Mind's Eye. Oliver Sacks by Oliver W Sacks
The Mind's Eye. Oliver Sacks

Kacey, April 7, 2014

Not my favorite Dr. Sack's book, but still worth reading. The eyes are an amazing evolutionary achievement, and one I certainly didn't think about much before reading this book. The Mind's Eye will show you how incredible your eyes are and how capable your body is of adapting when something happens to them. Great book to read and mull over before bed. Check it out!

Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal by Mary Roach
Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal

Kacey, March 21, 2014

A strong stomach is recommended for this disgustingly fascinating book. Learn all sorts of things you never knew you wanted to know! Like, was South Park right? If you shove food up your butt will you really poop out your mouth? And why should hooping only ever refer to hula hoops? This humorously informative book is the adults version of "The Magic School Bus: Inside the Human Body". You'll never think about eating the same way again!
