Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
Doctor Sleep

Pengi, October 26, 2013

As always, I was excited about a new Steven King book and couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy. I was surprised when it didn't pull me in for the first 100 pages or so, but when we finally got settled into the main story and started to get to know the different characters, I couldn't put it down. I'm already waiting for King's next book. Recommended.

Bridget Jones: Mad about the Boy by Helen Fielding
Bridget Jones: Mad about the Boy

A fun read! Bridget is as awkwardly charming and endearing as ever. It's fun and sad and rewarding to see Bridget all grown up. A must read for anyone who loves these books. Recommended.

The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
The Snow Child

Pengi, January 30, 2013

I recently moved to Alaska and read this book while lying under my covers and watching the snow fall, making me feel like I was in the story. It's a tale full of magic, mystery and kindhearted, likable characters. I found myself cheering for all of them, all the while waiting for tragedy to strike. Thoroughly engaging and highly recommended.

The Dog Stars by Peter Heller
The Dog Stars

Pengi, January 30, 2013

I enjoyed this book a lot, particularly the fragmented writing style. It gave me a sense of how the characters felt, as I imagine that if I were in a similar situation, I would feel pretty fragmented and incomplete myself. The world Heller created is dreary and chaotic, but there a moments of tenderness and introspection that really made the book come alive. Recommended!

The Passage by Justin Cronin
The Passage

Fast pace and gripping, this monstrous novel is a real page turner. Great detail and character development. Can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy.
