Cute but Bland

I liked what I saw of this movie, but I wasn't intrigued enough to finish the movie.
Good Book

Meg Cabot is a marvelous writer. I think this is the first "adult" book that I've read of hers, and it is just as good as her others. This mystery is set up well - the clues were dispersed and I never felt confused or like I already knew what would happen. There was also enough emotional side plot, relating to Heather's relationships and ex-pop star status too keep me entertained. While this is an adult book and Heather sleeps with someone, it wasn't graphic or a romance. Just fyi.
Adorable!

This book is charming. I simply adore fairy tale retellings and mash-ups, and this is the first new one I've found in a while. Sunday and her family are quirky and interesting, and the many fairy tale stories that manage to be tied in kept me entertained. I definitely recommend this book.
Beautiful :)

This book is absolutely lovely. Because there is a decent summary above, I won't bore you with another. :)

I finally requested this book because more than 7 people recommended it to me - I figured it was worth the read, and it was. I fell in love with the Kvothe's world, and his adventures were exciting. I normally like fantasy, but I haven’t read anything good in a while – this book reminded me how much fun a new magical world can be. Unlike a Harry Potter book, there wasn’t a clear plot with a super-planned build up, but I sort of liked the casual, stroll-like way that the story was told.

Anyway, I can’t wait to read the sequel, and I highly recommend this book.
Third in Series disappoints

Miss Mary Quinn is a 20-year-old female undercover agent living and working in London during the Victorian Era. Saved from the gallows by a school teacher, she was taught and later trained as a spy. This book documents a third adventure.

Miss Quinn, disguised as a chambermaid, goes undercover in Buckingham Palace to find who is stealing trinkets from one of the parlors. Little does she know that there are more troubles that she'll have to deal with, including the troublesome journalist Mr. Jones and a man who could just be her father. Mr. James Easton is back in the picture again, and he and the pipes he's working on won't make things any easier.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series - at least enough to request and read the second and the third. However, this one wasn't uber entrancing. I set it down and read a few books before I finished this one, and skipped around before I finished it. This book is good - entertaining, surprising, ect. - but not super special.
