Books I read in 2009  part 2

A Listmania! list by Hildy Ann (St Paul MN)
 
Brisingr (Inheritance, Book 3) (The Inheritance Cycle)
1.  Brisingr (Inheritance, Book 3) (The Inheritance Cycle) by Christopher Paolini
The list author says:
  "Grade:  D

I loved the previous stories, however this one started off badly when I discovered this was not the end of the trilogy but instead the trilogy had become a cycle and this was book three of four.  I wanted this to be the end.  It was too long and not interesting enough to hold my attention.  It took me 4 weeks to get through it!  And  I interspersed reading this book with some others."

Mary, Mary
2.  Mary, Mary by James Patterson
The list author says:
  "Grade:  C


Better than Patterson's co-authored novels (which are NOT WORTH READING, EVER) but worse than his first few Alex Cross books (which were FUN FUN FUN!)"
$36.77   Used & New from: $0.01

Birds in my drawer: Funny ABC rhymes
3.  Birds in my drawer: Funny ABC rhymes by Jo Anne Wood

Peace Like a River
4.  Peace Like a River by Leif Enger
The list author says:
  "Grade:  B

I admire Enger's writing style, it certainly cannot be called wordy!  It is sparse-- he communicates much with little.  The story was pleasant and had few surprises.  Very enjoyable."
$11.07   Used & New from: $0.01

Grace: A Novel
7.  Grace: A Novel by Richard Paul Evans

Speak No Evil: A Novel (No Evil Trilogy)
8.  Speak No Evil: A Novel (No Evil Trilogy) by Allison Brennan
The list author says:
  "Grade:  F

I quit reading this 30 pages into it.  Very juvenile writing, the conversations were stiff and felt unnatural, the comments characters made were unnecessary.  The murder scenes were extremely explicit and seemed so only for shock value."
$7.99   Used & New from: $0.01

Scandal in Spring (The Wallflowers, Book 4)

Where Are You Now?
10.  Where Are You Now? by Mary Higgins Clark
The list author says:
  "Grade: C

It was entertaining enough, but I figured out whodunit it very early on!"
$7.99   Used & New from: $0.01
