Friday Fifteen

Happy Friday, everybody! Here are this week’s fifteen-word book reviews:

1. A Chocolate Moose for Dinner by Fred Gwynne
Loved this book about homonyms as a kid. Apparently it was by Herman Munster. Heart!

2. Persuasion by Jane Austen
Great look at mistakes, forgiveness, and the harsh reality for unmarried women in the 1800s.

3. Little House on the Prairie (Little House #2) by Laura Ingalls Wilder
I couldn’t believe they left their home to go somewhere without homes already built.

4. Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
The colonialism/race issues are awk, but “The horror! The horror!” is a great line.

5. Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve
Steampunky book in which cities are mobile and consume each other. Great adventure, plus orphans.
