Recent Reads

School of Fear by Gitty Daneshvari (2009)--Chapter book.  First in a series, and we can hardly wait to read the other books.  Maya and I were often in hysterics reading together about four very different twelve-year-olds sent to a bizarre summer "school" to cure them of their life-limiting phobias.  Highly recommended.

This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas (2012)--Romance.  Another in the current rash of Fifty Shades-type novels, this one just needs some proofing and a little editing to be exceptional.  Expect the usual hanging ending because the next book in the series comes in January 2013.  Recommended.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (originally 1847)--Romance.  You may have read this one for a high school or college class, and I read this again as part of my book club at work.  If you like your hero dark and brooding and your heroine smart and unaware of her own worth, give this one another look.  Highly recommended.
