So I’ve let my “to-review” pile get out of control again. It’s not like this is new. However, there are a couple books in it that a review is simply not going to happen. I have nothing to really contribute or just not enough feelings about the book. But I thought I should say something, and the result is this: the first in (hopefully) a series of one sentence reviews complete with a toadstool rating. I’m going to pull five books out of the massive pile of “to-review,” dedicate a sentence to them, and send them on their way to my “done” bookshelf. And the first group is:
For Darkness Shows the Stars
By Diana Peterfreund
A tender Jane Austen love story with mashed in bits of post apocalyptic science fiction -- how could it be bad?
Final Thought: 500 out of 525 toadstools
Across the Universe
By Beth Revis
I just… I don’t even know; this book was super.
Final Thought: 7 out of 8 toadstools
By Marie Lu
An intense and wonderful addition to the YA dystopian genre, Legend combines a great cast of characters and a complex plot to form an exciting and unforgettable story.
Final Thought: 4 out of 5 toadstools
By Anna Banks
Final Thought: 6 out of 35 toadstools
Strands of Bronze and Gold
By Jane Nickerson
This one was highly anticipated for me and did not let me down, but did get a little slow and drawn out at times.
Final Thought: 16 out of 23 toadstools
Ahhh I feel so accomplished even though I didn't really do much. So what do you think? Want to make your own list of one sentence reviews to lower your pile? Send me a link if you do your own! Maybe this will become a monthly thing for me and whoever else needs to lighten their “to-review” stack.
