January reads

Youth Fiction - Sweet story

Shakespeare's Secret Elise Broach
Youth mystery - not great literature, but I enjoyed the story

OK, picked up from another blog reading list

Seeing what all the hype was about - not horrible, but I wouldn't reread

Really liked this. I think I need to read more about other countries ; )

At Large and At Small Anne Fadiman
Love her essays! Loved Ex Libris too.

Another youth fiction preread. Not bad.
