Mini reviews

The Book of Lost Things
I really loved this book.  It was really interesting how the author intertwined fairy tales with a fantasy world.  I also really liked how he retold the fairy tales.  The book was very well written.  I definitely would recommend this to everyone and I will read other books by this author.

A Map of the World (Oprah's Book Club)
I hate to say it, but I have read a lot of Oprah's book club picks.  I don't think there is any one of her picks that I have not enjoyed.  This book is no exception.  Parts of it were pretty dark, but it was an enjoyable book. I would really recommend this book.


  1. I really liked The Book of Lost Things, too. It was creepy and facinating just as a fairy tale should be!

    I've enjoyed every Oprah pick I've read, too. I guess she's just got pretty good taste in books!

  2. Visting from Lori's Linky :) I have The Book of Lost Things on my TBR - must get to it!

  3. Ooh, fairy tale retelling? Sounds interesting to me. I'll have to add it to my list.
