September Book List

84.  Among the Barons by Margaret Peterson Haddix- (****) Fourth installment in the Shadow Children series.  Pretty good.  Kind of a lot happened in just one short book, but I kept up with it fairly well, which is a sign of a good author.  Lots of double crossings and not knowing who's on what side.  Looking forward to book 5.

85.  Among the Brave by Margaret Peterson Haddix- (*****) Fifth Shadow Children book.  You've probably realized by now (as have I) that I like this series.  Among the Brave is one of my favorites I think.

86.  The Children on the Top Floor by Noel Streatfeild- (***) Very cute and loveable in typical Noel Streatfeild style. 

87.  The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
- (****) Reviewed HERE


88.  Among the Enemy by Margaret Peterson Haddix- (***)  I like these books in case you couldn't tell already.  I'm not going to say EVERYONE should read them, because obviously they're not going to be some people's cup of tea.  But, you might want to at least give the first one a try and see if you like it.  'Cause I really did. 

89.  Among the Free by Margaret Peterson Haddix- (***) Nice ending to the series. :)

90.  The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien- (***) Um... I had a hard time getting through this book.  This time was actually my 2nd attempt.  I don't know what it is...  I was interested in the plot, and it's very well written.  I'm hoping the next 2 books pick up the pace a little though...

91.  The Giver by Lois Lowry- (****) Interesting...  Thought provoking and somewhat disturbing.  I'm interested to read the others in the series.

92.  Roses for Mama by Janette Oke- (***)  Sweet.  :)

93.  Passenger to Frankfurt by Agatha Christie -(**)  *YAWN*  Is this plot going anywhere?  I hung out to the end of the book because I kept expecting it to get better, or maybe for the whole thing to make sense. I guess it did all make sense in the end, but the entire plot lacked in anything thrilling.  I hate to rate my favorite author so low, but this book is proof that even the best don't always have such brilliant ideas. 

94.  Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry- (***) First of all the title is just amazing.  Don't you think?  The art work on the cover was blah, though.  As for the story, it took me a while to get into it.  But, I did enjoy it in the end.  Highly Predictable plot. 

95.  Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine - (****)  Very cute and sweet Cinderella re-telling. If you object to fantasy be warned this... is a fairy-tale. 

96.  The Family at Caldecott Place by Noel Streatfeild - (****)  Typical Streatfeild= sweet, adorable, resourceful.

I read The Giver when I was a freshman in high school way back in 1995. Gah!

I've read 6 of those but Ella Enchanted was definitely my favorite.
