Twenties GirlTwenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Chick Lit book club. I often have trouble getting into chick lit. I have to overcome the poor writing and my dislike for the characters which are usually very selfish and delusional. By the middle of the book though I am reading at a quick pace, eating it up. Same with this book. Hated the characters but then the 'mystery' and 'relationships' sucked me in.

RoomRoom by Emma Donoghue

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Read this in two days. I am glad it was written from a child's perspective, I do not feel scarred from reading about such horror. I was so happy once they escaped from the Room. It was claustrophobic reading.

The Sandman Vol. 3The Sandman Vol. 3 by Neil Gaiman

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

4 short stories. I loved the middle two...about cat's dream and a midsummer's night dream.

Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage: StoriesHateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage: Stories by Alice Munro

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Have finished the first two short stories. I will read every now and again when there is a gap between book clubs.

Read all the short stories and nothing stuck. I might be oblivious but I would have liked the theme to be a little more pronounced. I also didn't care for the style, the auther would jump to different character's voice with no warning

The Apothecary's DaughterThe Apothecary's Daughter by Julie Klassen

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Bought it cheap.  Excited about a regancy novel. It was okay. I found out after I bought the e-novel that it was Christain litature. When one of suiters prayed it broke the suspense of the love triangle, of course the herione will choose the devoted guy.
