I love Twitterature days. Once a month, Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy hosts a link up of short, Twitter style book reviews. Below are my books for the month.
Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch has been all the rage lately. I’m sort of embarrassed to admit that I didn’t finish it. I LOVED the beginning but about midway through, I just couldn’t stand it any longer. And the book is so darn long that at half way, I still had about 17,000 pages to read.
Escape from Camp 14 is the kind of book that reminds me of why I am in book clubs. I would have never chosen this book on my own and quite frankly, I did not enjoy the book when I read it. The discussion during my library book club though was fascinating. There were a few people in the group who had read extensively on North Korea and had lots of information to share. When last night’s nightly news led with the tragedy that is North Korea I was relieved that the story is finally getting the attention it deserves.
Glitter and Glue was certainly my favorite book of the month. I will be reviewing this title for Great New Books next month so for now, let’s just say, it was great!!
