Opinions Wanted



I hope ya"ll are having a fantastic Labor Day.

I am in a reading rut right now; which means I don't know what to read.
There are a few books that I think I might want to read, but I haven't heard much about them. If you have read any of these books I would like to hear your opinion on them.

1. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. This is one of my all time faves. Perfect for any real book lover!

2. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

"The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald (recommended by Bill Beekman, MSU's Secretary of the Board of Trustees and Executive to the President at MSU)

3. Small Town Girl by Ann H. Gabhart

Small Town Girl (Rosey Corner Book #2) by Ann H. Gabhart

4. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

Linked is an article about YA books from this past year that adults would love, including Seraphina, about a half-girl half-dragon.

5. Just Ella by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Just Ella: In addition to recommending teen magazines, mom Beth G. suggests books like Just Ella, which puts a spin on traditional fairy tales.

6. Pegasus by Robin McKinley

Pegasus - Robin McKinley.  I liked this a lot, but the ending was awfully abrupt.  I trust a sequel is in the works ...

7. The Grim Legacy by Polly Shulman
A really fun and fresh book. I think the TV series Grim was either inspired by this book or is a rip off of the idea.

8. Lorna Doone by R. D. Blackmore

"And through the dewy meadow's breast, fringed with shade, but touched on one side with the sun-smile, ran the crystal water, curving in its brightness like diverted hope."  R.D. Blackmore: Lorna Doone


  1. Ooo! Small Town Girl was really sweet. :)

  2. Glad to hear it Rissi!
    I have read only one book by Ann H. Gabhart and didn't like it, but I would like to give her other books a try.
