Happy Friday, everyone, and happy last day of January! Let’s end the month with some good ol’ micro-book reviews.
1. The Austere Academy (A Series of Unfortunate Events #5) by Lemony Snicket
A fun send-up of boarding school books, and the series starts to hit its stride.
2. The Hanged Man by Francesca Lia Block
Probably the darkest Block book I’ve read, but tough issues are handled well.
3. Melville: The Making of the Poet by Hershel Parker
I didn’t even know that Melville wrote poetry. Nice general bio info as well.
5. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
A love letter to readers. Ending didn’t quite hold for me, but lots of awesomeness.
4. What Happens to a Hamburger? (Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science, Stage 2) by Paul Showers
All you ever wanted to know about noms in a picture book.

Inkheart was the book that got me into reading. Definitely an awesome awesome tale.
Aw, what a wonderful reading experience. Definitely an awesome book.
Inkheart still firmly holds it’s place on my favourites list.
That’s one I have to reread sometime. I remember loving curling up with the book and feeling like I was in the company of people who valued stories.
Inkheart is one of my all time favourites.
