Mini Review Time

Time for another round of "mini" book reviews!


Last Term at Malory Towers by Enid Blyton

I'm so glad I reread this favorite series from my childhood...












The Story Sisters by Alice Hoffmann

I love all of Hoffmann's books - her writing is so luminous - but this was definitely a much darker tale. I found myself depressed and sad through most of it, and kept waiting for a happy ending. Lovely writing, but not my favorite of her stories (The Probable Future still wins that prize).








A Lady of His Own by Stephanie Laurens

The third book in the "Bastion Club" series, which had a lot more mystery and adventure (and Dalziel!) than the previous books. Ready for number four...










The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart

Popular YA novel, taking place at a prep school where Frankie tries to hang with the boys. A bit of mystery, a bit of romance, and some truly spectacular pranks. This is going to be a popular read, methinks...









Master Your Metabolism by Jillian Michaels

After watching her on Biggest Loser, I wanted to read her book. Much more about hormones and organic foods than I thought...
