Darci in Cabin 13

wow - apple books, takes me back to the baby-sitters' club....i'd love to get a box set of those bad boys.
darci is along the same vein.....not very well written (sorry shayna). it's really weird, apparently Martha Tolles has sold over 2 million books! wtf! were standards that low in the '80s??? i kept waiting for a bigger conflict, i was suspicious of everybody! but nothing happened...this chick should have watched the original parent trap.
even though it's shayna's fave book, i'm afraid i can only give it
it helped me sleep though!

The Two Princesses of Bamarre

Another gem from Gail Carson Levine...I'm seriously falling in love with this writer! Great characters AND an awesome story worth telling. It's about 2 princesses, one's brave & the other's timid. They're both pretty of course..any way the timid one has to go on a quest & she grows some balls.

final Queen of babble - Meg Cabot

Queen of Babble gets hitched. Ok - I'm officially full of chick lit. I really don't understand why she's meant to be a blabbermouth - she never says any thing (not that sounds natural)...and i hate in movies and books when there's 2 awesome guys interested one always becomes a cheating loser.

Quidditch through the ages

This totally doesn't count as a harry! I just needed something light to read before I could get back to the library. Make me chuckle - good writing. Only for the Potterheads.

Winter - John Marsden

I know he's a good writer - and I like that his main characters are strong Aussie females...but can't he lighten up a bit.....This one kinda reminded me of Jellicoe Road - I liked it, but could have used more fun & romance & less gun violence:)

81 - Ella Enchanted

Oh my gosh - i loved this book! i didn't want it to end - i loved everything about it. great characters, great story, great writing.
i haven't seen the movie - but i'm sure the book's better:)
do yourself a fave - read it!

80 - more Marian Keyes

Postcards from bed.....meh...just short articles that she's mainly already had published in women's mags.....some were funny...but she kept referring to her husband as "Himself"....i get that she may not want to name him, but it was annoying.
fine holiday reading though....**1/2
