Weekly Geeks!

This week's Weekly Geeks is to catch up on your reviews. This is a repeat from last summer, when I also participated.

The rules are this:

I tell you all the books I've read but haven't reviewed yet, and then you ask me questions about the books, and then when I review them, I'll answer your questions.

Embarrassingly enough, you'll notice that there are several titles on this list that were on the one last year, too. Because I'm that behind... oiy. (72 unreviewed titles! SEVENTY TWO! Obviously, I need your help!)

The date refers to when I read the book. I'll also say that I actually have written reviews of many of the more recent books I've read, I just haven't posted the review, but if you have questions, I want to hear (well, read) them!

I just recently read Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Bank. So, my question is whether or not the book ended the way you expected it to? That'll be hard without spoiling the ending, I suppose, but maybe you can just talk about it in code or something for everyone who has read the book.

I enjoy the Junie B Jones series. How does the Cracked Egg hold up against the others in the series?

Sherrie said...

Is Theodosia and the Staff of Osiris R. L. LaFevers the first in this series? I have never read a Junie B. Jones book. Would you recommend these books for an adult reader? Have a great day!

Tithe is touted as a modern day fairy tale. Do you think this is an apt description? Why or why not?

Unknown said...

What did you think of the fey lore developed in Tithe?

Eva said...

Some readers I know think Tithe was too dark...what do you think?

Did you think Tender Morsels was a happy or sad book?

Have you read Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson? If so, how does it compare to Fever?
