February Reads


Okay, apparently February was a bad month for reading. Chalk it up to my trip, Olympic knitting, and classwork. Anyway.

(Explanation of the ratings)

7. The Cat Who Dropped A Bombshell by Lilian Jackson Braun
Genre: Mystery
Rating: 3
Comments: I've been reading this series since middle school, so it's sort of like visiting old friends and I enjoyed it for its familiarity and coziness. That said, honestly, it wasn't very good. There was barely a mystery at all, and the quality of these books has definitely gone downhill. Ah well.

8. The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson
Genre: Young Adult
Rating: 3.8
Comments: This was a standard "group of teen friends" book with a twist: when one of the three girls is away at a summer academic program, the other two begin a relationship with each other. It was a good read, although it dragged in places. I really liked the way this ended on a helpful note but didn't tie everything together too neatly.

Heh, I read the Cat Who Dropped a Bombshell last weekend and someone asked me about the plot TWO DAYS LATER and I had no idea. It was such a throwaway. Ghost writer?!
