Holy cow, this week got away from me. Let’s settle down with some book reviews in fifteen words or under.
1. Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
Wein does it again. Stunningly written, compelling history, all the feels ever.
2. The Grim Grotto (A Series of Unfortunate Events #11) by Lemony Snicket
Always a fan of undersea adventures, but this added too much mystery before the end.
3. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling
One way I can pretend I’m a Hogwarts student with a summer reading list.
4. Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! by Mo Willems
Even as a grown-up, I want to do read-alouds of this book.
5. Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee
I was more interested in everyone surrounding the main character, which made for a slog.
