I was checking out my 2010 Books I've read list, and notice there are quite a few books I hadn't reviewed, so I thought I'll do some mini reviews.
Enthusiasm- Polly Shulman
A quick cute read. I love Jane Austen, and this book has a touch of her work. Julie's friend, Ashleigh is obsessed with everything Jane Austen, especially Pride and Prejudice, and when Ashleigh has this grand idea to sneak into a boy's private school to find their Darcy's the fun begins.
Love is a Mix Tape- Rob Sheffield
I really liked this book. I'm a huge music fan..I can listen to music all day. Rob Sheffield does a great job connecting music to what was going on in his life. I could relate so much, because I often remember significant, and not so significant moments by what was playing in the background. This book is a soundtrack to a time in his life, that was joyful, and sad.
Paper Towns- John Green
Another great book. I tried reading this before and for some reason I couldn't get into it, but when I opened it a second time I quickly got engrossed in it. I felt it was somewhat of a mystery. I really wanted to know what had happen to Margo. Margo was a great character...selfish, but written well. The writing and story kept me reading nonstop.
Stargirl- Jerry Spinelli
I disliked this book soo much. Basically lets put everything that is somewhat different in one person to show how unique and carefree they are. I got the point, people are different and we shouldn't judge. Sure I liked the moral of the story, but did the writer have to make it so thrown in my face obvious. It just left a bad taste in my mouth.
