Good Reads Book Reviews

I'm such a doofus...I just figured out I can take my Good Reads reviews and post them here!  Woo hoo!  My reviews are always brief and to the point, but I like the idea of being able to actually post some reviews here since I'm horrible about writing them up!

So, here are some from this week thus far:

The Library DragonThe Library Dragon by Carmen Agra Deedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Somehow, I had missed out on reading this book! We picked up the book with the audio cd at the public library and it's now my new favorite book about Librarians. I will definitely be using it and recommending it for elementary librarians. Classic!  The audio is a must because the author, Carmen Agra Deedy, gives the dragon a "I just smoked a carton of cigarettes" voice and it is hilarious!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A wonderful companion novel to A tale Dark & Grimm. I especially loved the author's notes at the end where he clarifies where the stories he's modified and added to
originally came from. (these days, not everyone has a daddy like mine who read fairy tales to me nightly from his Book of Grimm.)

Readers will love the twists on old favorites and will delight in new to them stories.

The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle, #1)The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There's no doubt, this is Maggie Stiefvater's most amazing novel yet. Wow! I have read every book she has written and love her style. The Books of Faerie series is actually my favorite, but I have a feeling this new Raven Cycle may change my mind!

  1. I've only read Stiefvater's Mercy Falls series and I really enjoyed it. I thought Scorpio Races was pretty good. I will have to check on this Books of Faerie series!

    1. Kathy, the Faerie series is way better IMO. Scorpio Races took a long time for me to like and get hooked...that surprised me since everyone kept talking about it.
