34 Pieces of You

By Carmen Rodrigues

I expected this to be more about drugs. It's actually about depression and pain.
The plot was simple but believable. The pacing was swift and carried a lot of momentum. I read it very quickly.

Uglies Trilogy + Extras

Child and I both read these, but she lost interest after the trilogy.
I agree with her; however, I do think all of these books are a piece of brilliant (if obvious) social commentary.

Inkheart Trilogy

By Cornelia Funke

This was weird. I loved the stories. I enjoyed them a lot while I was reading them. However, these were a very slow read for me. Usually, there is a point in a story when I become eager to progress, when I need to carry it around the house and read a page whenever I can sneak a moment in. That didn't happen  with these. I liked them. In glad I read them. But I won't read them again.

In the Woods

Irish detective novel. Kept me reading, but when all is said and done I don't actually like it.
