His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik (ebook) - I did not like this one. Maybe because I have actually read a lot of naval fiction or because I did not like the way dragons were done in this story, but i just could not suspend reality to read this book in the way that I normally can with fantasy novels. Also I did not like the main character. Maybe the other books in the series are different? I just thought having a crew of people riding a dragon like a british naval ship was ridiculous. And the dragons all speak english? I usually like these kinds of book but I did not like this.
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton - SO GOOD. Suspenseful and engaging and interesting. I read this in two days. It reminded me of The Thirteenth Tale, which I also loved.
Superfreakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner (ebook) - The best part about reading this book (which was very interesting, just like the first one) was reading the section about how ineffective airport security is WHILE going through airport security.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett (ebook) - I wanted to read this after hearing this interview with the author on the radio. The author herself sounds like such a fascinating person, and the book did not disappoint.
The Man Who Loved Books Too Much by Allison Hoover Bartlett - Fascinating. I found it hard to believe this was a true story at some points, this was such a strange story. I want to know what is happening now, though!
Love Stories in This Town by Amanda Eyre Ward - I picked this up from the "February" book display at my library, hoping it would be at least okay, with short stories. UGH. I would NOT recommend this one. Uninspiring and bland.
