Review: Android Karenina

Android KareninaAndroid Karenina by Ben H. Winters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was amazing. Another great Quirk Classic book. From the company that brought us "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" comes Leo Tolstoy’s classic, only better. The entire plot was there with all the important people and bits but with robots! I was waiting for a Terminator to come bursting in but alas we only had aliens, androids, and steam-punk goodness. I went out and bought all of the Quirk Classics I had not obtained before and I suggest that everyone gives this book a try. I could not put it down and I’m not sure how many more good things I can say other than read this book!

Review: Something Borrowed

January 12, 2011

Something BorrowedSomething Borrowed by Emily Giffin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was so good. I could not put it down. The concept was one of the more original ones I have encountered in the "chick lit" genre. I really was on Rachel’s side even though everyone knows that she is not quite on the right side. Darcy reminds me of so many friends from when I was younger but I still always wanted Rachel to get the guy, come hell or high water. Absolutely amazing.

Review: Water for Elephants

Water for ElephantsWater for Elephants by Sara Gruen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was so much better than I ever expected. I had avoided this book in the past because I heard it was about a circus and with my last name, I have heard quite enough about those. My best friend sent this to me and it was very hard to out down. It was a quick read but that did not take away from the enjoyment I received from it. It was one of those books that you cannot put down. It also makes me happy because she started this book as a part of NaNoWriMo which I have not been brave enough to become a part of but have not been inspired to possibly try next year. I am curious to see how the movie adaption turns out but I feel I will always likes this best.
