Book Reviews


I read the Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer and loved it! I read all three books in less than a week. Every possible second was spent reading. I think they are great fantasy/romantic/sci-fi books. I like sci-fi where you think it could happen...like it starts with normal people who find out crazy things about themselves or in this case, others. I am really looking forward to book number 4 which comes out in August, and the upcoming film. When I looked up the pictures of the cast they looked like what I expected them to look like which was nice. These books definitely allow you to escape so if you need a cheap vacation this is the ticket. Two big thumbs up!



I also read The Ladies Auxiliary. It was also very good. It was about a tight-knit Jewish community and what happens when an outsider moves in and causes them to examine themselves. I could relate it a lot to LDS culture because we're also tight-knit and work hard to nurture and protect our families. I enjoyed it. Two thumbs up!

I agree, those books were a very cheap vacay for me-- because I borrowed them from the library-- they were good fast reads.
