The Compound: The world they knew is gone. Eli's father built the Compound to keep them safe. Now, they can't get out. He won't let them.

From Mrs. Miller:

I give this book 3 stars.  Honestly, I’m not sure how I feel about this book.  The plot was very good but I felt the writing could have been more…eloquent?  210 more words

The Teenage Brain, by Frances E. Jensen

3 Stars

This book falls into a hole. It’s really quite technical for everyday reading, but Jensen has made a clear effort to “dumb it down.” At times, this is useful, but others, the effort is wasted, because I honestly cannot imagine anyone reading this if they don’t work directly with teenagers and/or have an interest in psychology. 198 more words

The Worms of Heaven is the third book in Misha Burnett‘s “Book of Lost Doors” series. 271 more words



Her: Harriet Lane, June 18—25, 2015

My rating: ♦♦♦◊◊

Her is like  an attempt to create a Gone Girl/Notes on a Scandal hybrid, but falls short of both. 414 more words
