April Mini-Reviews

First, let me assure everyone that I found a solution to my plot problem. My mom came over for dinner on Sunday night. Boy am I glad she is Trekkie and a Superman fan. I don't want to give my book away so that's the only hint you're getting ;) (oh yes, that and my plot has NOTHING to do with Adam and Eve)

If you haven't read any of my other review posts I'll just let you know that my goal this year is to read a book a week. I've read 22 books so far this year and there have only been 17 weeks in the year, so I'm doing pretty good!

I couldn't read MATCHED without reading CROSSED now could I? I know a lot of people who were disappointed in this book. I mean, she kind of already chose her match didn't she? Yes and no. I actually enjoyed this book. I think it was good that her and Ky had issues. How could we know their love is real if it isn't tested in the most strenuous way? I don't think she picked Xander at all. She just needs to explore her options and make the best choice for her. No fault in that!

I personally loved this book, but be warned, not everyone did.

Oh how I have loved the Artemis Fowl series. each book has new level of genius that surprises me every time. As I picked up each book I thought, is this going to be same old Artemis book? And it never was. The characters arch smoothly and each story line is unique and unpredictable. The eighth and final book comes out in June. I can't wait!

This book was lovely. Shannon Hale never ceases to amaze me with her wit and suspense. I laughed through 75% and bit my nails through the 25%. She is a master story teller who knows how to pull at your heart Strings. Midnight in Austenland is a must read!

 I already gave you a glimpse into what I think of Across the Universe. Other people told me it would happen, but now I can say for certian that I am in love with Science Fiction again! Both books blew my mind. Even though I've a read other books since these ones, I'm still thinking about these ones. That's a good sign!

Another month past and another excellent set of books devoured. Keep reading, my friends, and find your mind expanded. I know I have!

What did you read in April?
