The Husband Hour

Title: The Husband Hour
Author: Jamie Brenner
Publisher: Little, Brown
ISBN: 9780316394901

Why Read?: For Fun

Thoughts: Brenner's writing pulls the reader in from the very beginning.  I did not find this as emotional as some readers, but it is compelling.

The Torn

Title: The Torn
Author: LaDonna Cole
Publisher: BHC
ISBN: n/a
Why Read?: Early Review

Thoughts: Nothing in this made much sense to me - the book title, the series title, the love triangles, the reason Kate is at Heartwork Village, Kate's personality, how many jumps can relate to one person, the thing about he Nobel Prize at the end - nothing.

Rating: 1/5

Return of the Mummy

Title: Return of the Mummy
Author: R. L. Stein
Publisher: Scholastic
ISBN: 9781467619851
Why Read?: For Fun

Thoughts: Aside from not using the word "sarcophagus" once, this was just as good as the first one.  I think the narrator also played a part in that.

Rating: 4/5
