It's Monday, so I figured I'd do my least favorite of the genres: YOUNG ADULT ewww ickickick.
So moving and fixing and tarting up eight of my YA reviews, I was surprised to find more positive ratings than negative ones. Good writing is good writing, no matter where it's shelved.
Here are today's smorgasbord nibbles:
THE HUNDRED AND ONE DALMATIANS the original, not the bastard Disney nonsense
THE ASTONISHING LIFE OF OCTAVIAN NOTHING, TRAITOR TO THE NATION both volumes, The Pox Party and The Kingdom of the Waves, are superior to much of the adult writing in historical fiction
TELL THE WOLVES I'M HOME ~meh~
COMET IN MOOMINLAND timeless delight
THE BOY WHO HARNESSED THE WIND there *is* hope for the future!
THE GIRL WHO CIRCUMNAVIGATED FAIRYLAND IN A SHIP OF HER OWN MAKING simply excellent luminous and transcendant
