Mini-Reviews

It feels like it's been forever since I actually posted on here, I've been in quite a reviewing funk. I do have a review coming tomorrow for After Obsession, but here are a few mini-reviews that I thought I would post in the meantime. I'm not sure how regularly I'll be posting, but I have hope that I'll get back into the swing of things!


The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg

This was a fairly quick read for me, and I enjoyed it! It's actually the book that got me out of my reading/reviewing funk. Penny has Beatles obsessed parents, and bad luck with boys. When she starts a club (the aptly named Lonely Hearts Club) that swears off boys, she's surprised at how many girls want to join.

It was a cute fluffy read, and it's a bit more about friendship than it is about relationships. Yes, there is a romance aspect to the book, but it really touches on the way that teens can sometimes loose themselves in their dating lives and loose touch with their friends.

Rating: B




Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind

An awesome start to a super long fantasy series. I finally gave in to a friend who was determined to make me read it. I was so glad that I did! Even though the page length seemed a little daunting, I got through it pretty quickly. As soon as I finished I headed straight to the library to pick up the sequel.

Engaging characters, a great story, but to those who are a bit squeamish, there are a couple of violent scenes. Frankly, this book just has too much going on within it to break it down into a couple of paragraphs. If you like a good fantasy read, check this out.

Rating: A
