Friday Fifteen

Apparently it’s already the last Friday in June. I think I need a few more weeks before I’m mentally ready to move into July. Maybe a few fifteen-word (or fewer) book reviews will help.

1. Freckle Juice by Judy Blume
A great read-aloud in first grade. At least freckle juice is safer than tanning beds.

2. The Outlaws of Sherwood by Robin McKinley
I wish I’d read this in middle/high school. Great take on the Robin Hood legend.

3. Orlando: a Biography by Virginia Woolf
Orlando is an immortal, gender-switching Brit who meets famous historical figures. Doctor Who, anyone?

4. The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker
Great concept and lovely writing, but never felt like the characters came to life.

5. Snowbound (The Baby-Sitters Club Super Special #7) by Ann M. Martin
A Super Special without a cool vacation? Nice try, guys.
