1. Northanger Abby by Jane Austin (5) I really enjoyed this.
2. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (5) I can’t believe I’ve never read this! I really enjoyed it.
3. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling (5) My husband finally talked me into reading this. It was a really good story. Now I just have to get the second book back from my nephew!!
4. A Place of Quiet Rest by Nancy Leigh DeMoss (3.5) This was a book about the how and why’s of living a devotional life. The why parts were kind of a waste for me (I already knew why) but it had some practical applications.
5. Not all Tarts are Apple by Pip Granger (4) This book is set in 1950’s London, and is the conflict between a little girl and her adopted “family” and her biological family. It was a good book. It has many sordid characters and immoral lifestyles, but the story is told from the point of view of the 8 year old, so there are no details to the behaviors, just allusions.
6. The Lost Letters of Pergamum by Bruce W. Longneck (5) This is a book from my husbands library that he insisted I read. It is a fictionalized account of the New Testament World. It is written as a series of letters between Anitpas (a Roman nobleman) and Luke. They are discussing Luke's monograph (the book of Luke in the Bible). It is great historical fiction.
7. An Innocent, a Broad by Ann Leary (4.5) A fun memoir about the birth of her premature son in a foreign land (England). Very humorous.
8. The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo (4.5) Newbury Medal winner. A very cute story. Recommend as a read aloud.
9. Crow Lake by Mary Lawson (4) This is a story that tells how one point in a family’s history can greatly change lives. I enjoyed the story, but there was a lot of flashing back in forth through time, which I could have done without.
