Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
Confessions of a Shopaholic

efox15, March 30, 2012

I loved this book! It was a great light read, and all of the moments in it made me laugh. I think that many of us can relate to Becky Bloomwood and will be rooting for her to conquer her problems throughout the entire book. The entire series is great, and the characters just get better and better. If you are a fan of comedy or just need a light read, this book is perfect for you. It is an easy story, but it's really fun! I've found myself hoping for another book starring the shopaholic every time I finish the last, and I hope they're not over yet!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance -- Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! by Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austen
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance -- Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!

efox15, February 29, 2012

This was such a funny read. People that have read PRide and Prejudice will especially like this new take on such a romantic classic. To be truthful, I thought that the author wrote in the "zombie attacks" quite well. He was careful about staying true to the characters and kept the storyline relatively similar (with the exception of the one huge change). I really enjoyed this as a fun light read, and I think that this author is extremely creative and clever. He has other titles, such as Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. Each of these is such a fun read, and a new favorite for anyone that likes twists on classics.

Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
Where the Red Fern Grows

efox15, February 29, 2012

This is such a cute book. The story of Billy and his two hound dogs never gets old. My mother gave this to me after we got a bluetick coonhound, and I was so glad. It made me cry, laugh, and root for the main character and his dogs as they enter contests, endure hardships, and learn from their mistakes. This is a great read for kids that love animals, and adults, too. You won't forget this classic children's story, and it will make you want to have your own Old Dan and Little Ann to be there for you.

Ten Little Indians by Agatha Christie
Ten Little Indians

efox15, February 29, 2012

This is without a doubt the best mystery book I have ever read. Ever since I finished it three years ago, I have been recommending it to friends. It will keep you guessing until the very end. Agatha Christie is second to none in creating suspense, endings with a twist, and extremely good plot and characters. I couldn't put it down from the minute I started it. If you are a mystery reader, this deserves a place on your bookshelf. The haunting poem from the beginning guides you through the story telling you of the "ten little indians" staying at a house alone on a island. This is one of my favorite books, and I have reread it several times! It's so good that I catch a new clue to the end each time I read it! Amazing story!

From the Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne
From the Earth to the Moon

efox15, February 29, 2012

I am a huge fan of Jules Verne stories. This book is not quite as well known as others of his, but I enjoyed it immensely. The characters from the gun club and the rivalry between Barbicane and Nicholl make the story so interesting and fun to read. They are extremely well created and will make you laugh. The chapters are really short, which I love about Jules Verne, so you can read them quickly. It's a great adventure that, while a little imaginative, teaches us much about the world of science, the moon, and even projectiles. Despite the many scientific references, you do not need to love science to read this book. It is a great read for people who love adventure and classics. I adored every minute of it, and I look forward to reading the sequel!
