The Hurricane (2000)
4.78 of 5 Votes: 3
I actually really liked this book. It was a simple, pure story and the characters were genuine. I liked how they worked hard to get out of their circumstances. It wasn't overly dramatic and it also wasn't a "shiny wrapped in a big bow" easy happy ending. It might not be for everyone but that said...
The Fangirl's Guide to the Galaxy: A Lexicon of Life Hacks for the Modern Lady Geek (2000)

I have been waiting for a book like this. I received a advance copy from Net Galley and brought it with on a recent 4 hour train ride. It was the perfect book. I love how it was divided up and the information was really interesting and very fun. It covers so many fandoms and I found reading about...
The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl (2000)
3.56 of 5 Votes: 5
Very flat, the writing style is not very good but readable, hence the 3 stars instead of less. Her life is fascinating--but unfortunately she had a habit if starting a story and drawing you in--and then speeding up the narrative like she ran out of time or words.Also, it's not very funny--there w...
Life's Greatest Lesson (2013)

This book was given to me by a Catholic friend, and although I am Protestant I want to share this with everyone I know. The story was deeply touching and it encouraged me to apply the LEGS principle to my life. I think everyone should read this regardless of their denomination. It truly is one of...

كتيب فريد من نوعه ... حكم من فوق الأبراج الروحية ... طبعاً سأعود لاحقاً لقراءة شرح لها، شرح عاقل سليم من الشطحات الصوفية . أفزعني أني وجدت في مقدمة إحدى الشروحات قول الشارح ( لو جاز أن يُقرأ في الصلاة شيء غير القران لكانت الحكم العطائية ) !!! طبعاً هذا لم يمنعني من قراءة الحكم التي فيها ما فيها م...

If you're a fan of the Miranda sitcom, you'll love this book. It contains six of Miranda Hart's favourite scripts from the TV series, along with her annotations (e.g. bits that were later cut, ideas for rehearsal). There are also extra snippets about the making of the show, trivia about the dif...

This is another fun and humorous book of essays. there are topics on pets, frogs, Kitchen disasters, and hobbies to name a few. I can sure relate to some of t...
1,001 People That Suck (2013)
3.83 of 5 Votes: 2
I received this book for free through a Goodreads First Reads Giveaway. This is a coffee table/bathroom book; just something light and fun. It is just a rhyming list of people that suck. The illustrations are cute, but I didn't think it was that funny. She breaks the list into themed categories, ...

I enjoy Miranda Dickinson, I really do. Just cannot give this more than 3 stars. Not quite up to some of her other books. Love a Christmas wedding! Great to see characters from other books.Slightly inconsistent with American/British slang and words?However - This is what frustrated me the most, h...
Multiple Motives (2011)
3.79 of 5 Votes: 4
What a GREAT introduction to a new series of mystery books. OK. So I am very late to this party. Apparently the series started back in 2011 and Book #6 in the series has already been published, with a new one due out soon. So ... what can I say? I am now going to binge on all the other books...

4.17 of 5 Votes: 1
This is a really cute book and a quick read. It's a collection of letters that cat owners have written to their cats. While many of the letters are basically like "You're a great cat. I love you." there are a few extraordinary stories. Cats who are blind or have other serious handicaps, but are ...

4.03 of 5 Votes: 2
What an adorable story. Petey wishes to be tranquil...Pru is always feeling tricksy. When Petey's gardening is interrupted by Pru's mayhem what results is total and complete brouhaha. Great illustrations that remind me a bit of a fairy tale along with an adorable dog and lots of kitty cats. T...
Nasty Bugs (2012)
3.85 of 5 Votes: 3
The tagline is "Poems to make your skin crawl" and they certainly do! These poems demonstrate how research and art can combine with great affect. The poets obviously know their topic and the poems communicate the appearance and interesting (if not disgusting!) traits of these different bugs. Illu...
The Terrible Two (2000)
3.97 of 5 Votes: 2
This was certainly a "laugh out loud" trek down middle school memory lane. What I liked best is that it wasn't just a funny story; it was an extremely clever story. I could see a lot of the slapstick humor being developed into a live action short film of sorts. The story is initially about the ri...
