The Eternity Cure (Harlequin Teen) by Julie Kagawa
The Eternity Cure (Harlequin Teen)

Pengi, May 4, 2014

These books are fun. They're quite a quick read and have solid character development as we learn more about each individual's motivations. Allison was forced to make a split second decision to become something she's always despised, but adapts to her new (after)life while doing her best to maintain her humanity. I still have book three to look forward to and am eager to find out what happens. Would be a great series for a lazy beach vacation.

Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
Doctor Sleep

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

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!
