Happy November, everyone! What better way to start the month off than with a few book reviews in fifteen words or fewer?
1. The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling
A fun read in companion with Harry Potter 7. “The Tale of the Three Brothers” especially feels like a real folktale.
2. Both Sides Of Time by Caroline B. Cooney
Romance and time travel in Victorian New York. Reread this a lot as a kid.
3. The Sunnydale High Yearbook by Christopher Golden and Nancy Holder
Season 3 was the best, and I was totally the target audience.
4. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce
Can see why it was so influential, but never connected to Stephen Dedalus.
5. Where’s Waldo? by Martin Handford
In a world where red-striped shirts rule, one man stands alone…in a huge crowd.

Where’s Waldo is one of the most suspenseful books I have ever read. This trailer for the movie version is amazing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGMrc3ozMhs
Oh my gosh, that’s hilarious!
To quote my mom, the librarian, “So many books, so little time!”
Amen to that!
