This week, I only got through two instead of my usual three--they were a bit longer than usual, and they are a really weird pairing. Without further ado:
What I read in the last week:
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Whoah. Like everyone else who has read this book, I am now struggling to talk about it without spoiling. I think what I liked most about it is the way it puts the reader squarely in Mara's shoes for much of the book, as you and Mara both try to figure out what the heck is happening. Parts of it read like a dark contemporary romance, parts like a thriller, and other parts--I don't want to spoil the other parts. But I will say that Noah is just as irresistible as he is meant to be--and that I can't wait for book two!
Prairie Tale: A Memoir by Melissa Gilbert
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Basically what I expected: some fun/amusing/surprising/sad anecdotes, but the writing didn't exactly light me on fire. I mean, not that Melissa Gilbert needs to be a great writer--she's got plenty else going for her :) I did like hearing about life on the Little House set--nerdily, I probably would have preferred to hear more about that and about Gilbert's development as an actress than about her star-studded romantic life.
