I really enjoyed this book and love how it weaved in the original while adding the supernatural part to it. The zombies did not overwhelm the story but added a very fun antidote to what is basically the love story of Elizabeth and Darcy. I have to admit since I heard it was rumored that Natalie Portman is going to play Elizabeth in the movie version that I kind of read some parts going can she pull it off? I think she would be perfect for the role! I think if you love Pride and Prejudice and…more Pride and Prejudice […]
I enjoyed this book much more than I enjoyed the first one in the series. It was a fun read and Glory is growing on me as a lead character. I still think the fun is in her talking dog and friends. It did a good job of keeping you interested in what was going to happen to all of them. The only thing was the ending was a little rushed but I am hoping that is because the story carries on in the next book.
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan: This was a great read and one I would highly recommend if you like the Harry Potter books. It was clever (the use of the different gods persona’s were both funny and spot-on to what you would think they would be like if they were in this era) and funny (the kids and the gods have a knack at making almost every situation humorous). I was not sure what to expect as I had only heard a little bit about the movie and had not heard of the books at all until recently. Now, […]
The Kitchen Witch by Annette Blair: This book would have gotten a 5 if the beginning had not been a little hard to get into. Once the book started rolling (about chapter 5) it was a wonderfully delightful read full of fun and colorful characters. I was impressed with the way the author magically pulled you into each of their lives. Logan and Mel are the Darcy and Bridget of just not getting it but you have to love how everyone else around them does. Shane is really the star of the book (the little boy) and the parents/friends all […]
This series is one of those that I want to see how they work out the overall story arch but I am getting a little tired of the Riley/Quinn arguments every 3 pages. That is a bit of an exaggeration but it is getting to the point that I want to just skip the parts that they are in but can’t because I might miss story points. I felt like this book moved the overall story along but left you wanting to know who the big bad behind everything is. I think the mystery part is the best part of […]
