At Home in Mitford by Jan Karon (4/5) I almost gave up on this book, but about halfway through, it really picked up, and I really enjoyed it.
When the Heart Cries by Cindy Woodsmall (4/5) This book is about the Amish. It is very reminiscent of Beverly Lewis, although I thought much less predictable. This is the first in a series, and the second isn’t out yet. A very good read.
Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry (4/5) This is a companion to her book The Giver. Whereas the Giver shows a future that has advanced technologically, Gathering Blue shows a future that has regressed. A good read.0
O Pioneers by Willa Cather (5/5) This is my second Willa Cather book, and I really like her writing
Separate Beds by LeVyrle Spencer (3/5) I’m not sure who recommended this book, but it was O.K. It was about a girl who has a one night stand with a wealthy young man and becomes pregnant. They marry, then later fall in love. It did have a very negative portrayal of abortion, which I liked.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling (5/5) I’m loving Harry!!
Harry Potter and the Prizoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling (5/5) Another great book.
The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde (4.5/5) This was a really great book! I can’t wait to read the next one.
Grand Canyon A Different View by Tom Vail (4/5) This is a glimpse at the Grand Canyon from a creationists point of view. The photos are breathtaking, and the information good.
The Nanny Diaries by Nicola Kraus and Emma McLaughlin (4/5) This book was disturbing. It is a fictionalized look at a Nanny, but is written by two nannies, so I assume much they write about they have seen. It’s so sad to think of children being raised by a Nanny because their parents can’t be bothered. This book had A LOT of bad language, so if this bothers you, please do not read this book!
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling (5/5)
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling (5/5) I can now understand the Harry Potter Craze! I read this monster book (870 pages) in about 24 hours!
