This is the first library finds in a long time. After two weeks of re-reading, I finally get to read new books!
1. Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr
2. Beastly by Alex Flinn
3. Season of Passage by Christopher Pike
4. Fearless Fourteen by Janet Evanovich
I started on Fearless Fourteen last night. So far, not as great as some of the other Plums, but not hang-yourself horrible as the Amazon customer reviews claim. The writing does, however, feel a bit rushed…
Out of 151 Amazon customer reviews, 150 gave Season of Passage 5 stars. I wouldn’t say I’m influenced by the star rating (okay, who am I kidding, I sort of am), but I have never been unsatisfied with a Christopher Pike. The review comments falls somewhere in the line of “I read this when I was 14 and have read it 5-6 times since then…” Multiple readings! A book that stays with you as you grow! Sounds like the book for me.
Beastly: a modern high school retelling of Beauty and the Beast from the Beast’s POV. Has potential.
Story of a Girl: a high school drama about redemption. Deep. Sounds promising.
