Downsiders by Neal Shusterman
This book should have been about three times as long! I loved the idea of a secret underground world underneath New York but it didn’t get nearly enough pagetime! I wanted more descriptions, to meet more people, to learn more about the society!
Little Liar, by Julia Gray
I couldn’t really get into the first part but from part two I was hooked! I love reading about manipulative girls and toxic friendships so I really enjoyed this. I’m also a sucker for books in which the characters put on a play.
Book of a Thousand Days, by Shannon Hale
A moving story about a servant girl who is locked in a tower for seven years with a princess who has refused to marry the man her father chose for her. It’s slow at first but speeds up and I fell in love with all the characters (except the villain, who is frightening and easy to hate!) and the generous spirit of the book.
And here’s a blast from the past, the old video in which I talk about E Lockhart’s earlier books! Terrible quality video and audio but I’ve got a hat on, what more can you want?
