Currently Reading 12/31/12
Head over to Teach Mentor Texts to see what everybody else is reading!
This week I finished,
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Seraphina was fabulous in every way. Wildly imaginative with great characters. One of my favorites of the year. Tiger Lily, on the other hand, was problematic. The depiction of Indians was unsettling, and, beyond that discomfort that brought me, I just felt no emotion for the characters at all. I just didn't care. Some really lovely writing, though, and it's an intriguing premise. Now I've gone and lost the library's copy of the book which I hate.
I am currently reading:
Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan
The Art of Tasha Tudor by Harry Davis
The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan
I *hope* to get to:
The Diviners by Libba Bray
Ask the Passengers by A.S. King
This is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz
