An abundance of Katherines, by John Green is about a teen prodigy named Colin. Colin has dated a number of girls named Katherine, nineteen exactly.When his most recent relationship with Katherine number 19 ends Colin is sad. To take his mind off Katherine his best friend Hassan take Colin on a roadtrip. On this roadtrip they visit the crypt of an arch duke. There they meet Lindsey Lee Wells, a pre-med student and tour guide for the crypt. Colin and Lindsey fall in love and she breaks his Katherine dating sequence.

I really enjoyed this book and would suggest John Green lovers give it a try. It's a great read for girls who like quirky love stories and funny friendships.I look forward to reading this book again, and more novels by this author in the future.

Mary, Bloody Mary (Young Royals Book) by Carolyn Meyer
Mary, Bloody Mary (Young Royals Book)

Ruby h, March 10, 2013

Mary Bloody Mary was a great book! It was a good selection for group reading because it offered open-ended questions about subjects from history and present day. This book is an intense story about a princess called Mary, who goes from royalty to peasant, and through her suffering faces many challenges. It is a fairly accurate book on the Tudor family, King Henry the eighth, and his many wives. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning more about people's (especially women's) struggles in medieval times.
