Friday Books

Bird Lake Moon
Kevin Henkes
179
I liked this book - particularly the way the protagonist had no idea how completely his plan really connected to the family next door. Unique.
Confessions of a Serial Kisser
Wendelin Van Draanen
294
I do so love Wendelin's books. This was no exception. A classic portrait of that very confusing time of adolescence and romantic obsession with no sense of boundaries....
Cornelia & the audacious escapades of the Somerset Sisters
Lesley MM Blume
264
Very Secret Garden this one -- lonely child who finds a soulmate -- love books that are stories within a story, too...
How I Saved My Father’s Life and Ruined Everything Else
Ann Hood
218
This little one was a surprise - had a lot more depth to the story than I had anticpated.
How To Build a House
Dana Reinhardt
227
Hmmm, really loved this one. Put me in mind of a female version of An Abundance of Katherines... good stuff.
Peeled
Joan Bauer
256
Vintage Bauer -- plucky girl protagonist and pals thwarting evil forces in a rural town. Fun.
What the Moon Saw
Laura Resau
272
I wanted to read it because I loved Red Glass -- sadly it was kind of like re-reading Red Glass...

7 books, 1710 pages, 9 hours and 20 minutes reading.

Must close the eyes for a bit now.... very gritty they are!
