Great load this week! The books I reserved finally came so I don't have to force myself to read slowly anymore.
What’s a girl to do when the glass slipper fits, but she doesn’t want to wear it anymore?" This sounds like awesome-ness!
Annexed by Sharon Dogar. Some historical fiction is thrown in this week to shake things up! I don't read that genre very much because I used to dislike it, but I'm starting to rediscover this so I'm more open to reading it. Last year, we did a unit in English on Anne Frank (though for some reason, we read some play about it instead of her diary, which disappointed me), and it was probably my favorite unit of the whole year. Of course, this book isn't just another Anne Frank retelling - this one is all about the boy with her, Peter, which I think is a great idea! We rarely hear about him, so it'll be interesting to see how the author pulled this off.
Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler. And finally for some fantasy! (I told you I had a great load this week - very well-rounded.) The synopsis kind of confused me a little, but from what I gather, it's about a seventeen-year-old anorexic girl who has to face famine. This seems like a unique idea; I've read books about anorexia, and books about famine, but never both. I'm interested to see how a girl who inflicts starvation on herself is affected by seeing people who have no choice, and I wonder how those people will react to her. I haven't exactly heard the best things about this book, but it sounds intriguing enough for me to give it a try.
