Okay guys, executive decision time. I love the Friday Fifteens, but I think it’s time to take it down a notch. So far I’ve had sixteen Friday Fifteens featuring fifteen reviews, which means I’ve reviewed 240 books; I’m exhausted! Starting this week, the Friday Fifteen will review five books in fifteen words or less. All that fifteen-word goodness in a snappier format.
1. Sorcery and Cecelia or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot: Being the Correspondence of Two Young Ladies of Quality Regarding Various Magical Scandals in London and the Country by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer
Jane Austen meets Harry Potter in this epistolary novel. Such a treat!
2. Russell Grant’s Illustrated Dream Dictionary: Your Dreams and What They Mean by Russell Grant
If you dream about teeth, it means you’re stressed. Or something. Can’t remember much.
3. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
Me in seventh grade: “Why are they all named Jacques?” Had a crush on Sidney.
4. Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri
Gorgeous collection of short stories; can see why this won the Pulitzer.
5. The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks
Dug it, got the sequel, stopped reading when no characters from Sword of Shannara appeared.

Holy Smokes. How were you able to keep up that pace?
It wasn’t too bad for a while–fifteen-word reviews limit things a lot–but the last few weeks have been rough. I think cutting back to five will help a lot.
I have just awarded you the Creative Chaos award. Now you have to pass it down. Enjoy!
Thanks so much, dude!
Wow, that is a lot of books:) Glad you brought it down, I love the 15 word recaps… very fun!
Thanks Victoria! Glad I brought it down, too. Otherwise I’m pretty sure I’d run out of books by the end of the year.
I think 5 is a fine, solid number for a weekly post! Also, I love Sorcery and Cecelia – sometimes it’s a strange one and takes the right kind of YA reader to appreciate it, but I enjoyed it greatly and have been wanting to read the second one for months now, since I finished the first.
