As promised. Maybe a little late, but still…two posts in almost two days is pretty good for me, I think. 🙂
~Wonder by R.J. Palacio – I re-read this one is prep for the movie and I’ve gotta say…Wonder is one amazing book. I read it in a day. And I’m giving Owen Wilson a huge thumbs-up as Nate Pullman. He’s pretty much perfectly cast.
~The Scarlet Pimpernel and The Elusive Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy – Sir Percy’s adventures never, ever, EVER get old. I love everything about these books and most of the characters.
~The Siren by Kiera Cass – Not sure if I like this better than the Selection series, but it’s different and swoonable and so atmospheric. I’d probably read it again.
~The Divergent series by Veronica Roth – First book: LOVE. Second book: Slightly boring and Four is more than a little out of character in the beginning. Third book: What. Even. Four: All the heart emoticons, Four-style (<4).
~Just Deserts by Eric Walters – According to my brother, almost every Eric Walters book is a copy of the last, but this one breaks the mold. Genuinely moved me in a few places, and y’all know that I’m attracted to stories of huge jerks who become awesome human beings through a series of unfortunate events (#lightningmcqueenFORTHEWIN).
~Backlash by Sarah Darer Littman – Interesting, but ultimately a depressing look at how people cope (or don’t) with the trials of life when they don’t know Christ. *shudder*
~Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín – Movie was wayyyyyy better.
