Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

I'm not sure how to even summarize this novel other than to say what an unexpected adventure! This book begins with Jacob and the brutal death of his aging grandfather. Jacob finds that the stories his grandfather told him all those years ago weren't just his imagination. ...

The Art of Racing in the Rain

Denny has more than his share of bad luck with life, and Enzo shares his perspective on the lessons of life. While satisfying in the resolution of the story, as will most dog stories, there is some sadness at the end. I particularly enjoyed Enzo's wise perspective as...

Bad Things Happen

I LOVED this book! I particularly enjoyed the literary setting and how it all tied back to a publishing firm and mystery authors. The very first page hooked me with David Loogan and his identity and held me through to the very last page. A GREAT READ!...

Started Early, Took My Dog

Jackson Brody is one of my favorite detectives. While each story stands on its own merits, it is much better to read them as a series. This book does just as the previous books in establishing a series of events and people that seem independent of each other,...

The River

I was interested in the mystery of what happened to Karen, but the story seemed to take a different path and I felt somewhat shortchanged by it. Overall, I enjoyed it, but was somewhat unsatisfied when I think back on the storyline.

Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer

John Grisham should stick to the adult legal thrillers. Unlike Carl Hiaasen, who made the transition to juvenile/young adult lit with great flair, John Grisham did little more than outline a story. This was a snoozer of a book.
