A Bone to Pick (Aurora Teagarden Mysteries) by Charlaine Harris
A Bone to Pick (Aurora Teagarden Mysteries)

sarasquare, March 29, 2009

This is the second book in the Aurora Teagarden series by Charlaine Harris and it is a great one! "Roe" Teagarden is itching for something new in her life, but gets more than she asked for when she becomes the beneficiary of a house when a good friend dies. New love and secrets from her friends past keep Roe busy in A Bone to Pick.

A Fool and His Honey (Aurora Teagarden Mysteries) by Charlaine Harris
A Fool and His Honey (Aurora Teagarden Mysteries)

sarasquare, March 29, 2009

I am a huge fan of Charlaine Harris and especially of her Aurora Teagarden series. Aurora "Roe" is a great character and in A Fool and His Honey she and her new husband are in danger when his past and relatives come back to haunt him. This book is one of my favorite Teagardens and one of the most painful to read with a very surprising ending that makes you jump up and beg for the next book to see what happens next.

Ender's Game (Ender Wiggins Saga) by Orson Scott Card
Ender's Game (Ender Wiggins Saga)

sarasquare, October 14, 2008

I'm a recent fan of sci-fi and fantasy books, and Ender's Game should be required reading for the genre, parents, and kids. I was truly surprised by this story. Though deeply impressed with the way Card described the inner thoughts of a child-genius, I just wanted to give Ender a hug and a cookie, and let him play outside before going back to saving the world.

Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell

sarasquare, October 14, 2008

I'm a huge fan of classics from 18th and 19th century, and though Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell was written in the 21st century, it certainly has that classic style with a modern-sarcastic twist. Clarke's characters are well-rounded; some endearing, some mysterious. There is a great blend of the magical and practical worlds in this story. This is a really fun, dark, and surprising book.

The Hunger Games (Hunger Games #01) by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games (Hunger Games #01)

sarasquare, October 10, 2008

The Hunger Games completely took me by surprise. I had been looking for something new to read and this book was recommended. The story is about personal and physical sacrifice to protect one's family, but is set in such a cruel set of circumstances. It is unnerving to read as characters come to like and respect each other at the same time that they are trying to kill each other. The attention to detail, thought process and emotions are amazing and I fell in love with Katniss and Peta. I was so excited when I got to the end and discovered that The Hunger Games is only Book One in what I hope will be a long series. I can't wait for the next!
