The One Liner Book Review: February Edition

I realized that I haven’t done a lot of book reviews lately (on my blog or Goodreads).  I’ve been reading, just not talking about it.

Here’s another secret: I’m not a fan of writing book reviews.  It’s tricky for me to talk about a book beyond “I like it,” “I hate it,” “Not a fan,” “THIS IS THE WORST BOOK EVAR!,” or “OMGYOUMUSTREADTHISORIWILLNEVERSPEAKTOYOUAGAIN!”

Thus, we have the birth of the One Liner Book Review!  Every month, I’ll (try) to post one liner reviews of books I read the previous month.  And by one liner reviews, I mean just one line to give my thoughts on the book.

There is a good chance it will turn into two liner and three liner reviews.  Just saying.

February selections:

The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, #1)

1.) The Golden Compass by Phillip Pullman

About damn time I read it and I loved it!  Mrs. Coulter gives me the heebie-jeebies.


2.) You by Caroline Kepnes

Gave me nightmares, you have been warned.

A Wrinkle in Time (A Wrinkle in Time Quintet, #1)

3.) A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle

Re-read for book club.  Charles Wallace is awesome.

    Any chance you’d share what you’re planning to do as activities with Wrinkle? I’m totally stealing your idea of using that one for book club … 🙂

      We really didn’t get a chance to do many activities because they had a LOT to say about the book! It was a miracle! I just let them go with it. The one thing we did do was create a new cover for the book. I pulled up some Google images of the different covers Wrinkle has had over the years (and there are a ton) and we talked about them before they drew their own interpretation.

        I like that idea! I’m stealing it. I made my kids read NONFICTION (gasp) this month, so we’re doing baking soda volcanoes at book club because science.

        Oh, we read some nonfiction EVERY year. This year, the tweens are reading Bill, The Boy Wonder about one of the creators behind Batman. *nerdjoy*
