Mister Max : The book of lost things by Cynthia Voigt was excellent. I loaned it to my mother:
Mother: I am just calling to tell you that I can't put this book down.
Me: Good. What do you think of the librarian grandmother?
Mother: I can't talk right now. I have to finish the book. But thank you for lending it to me.
I am now reading Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. It is hard for me. But I am a grandmother who is not all that into cars, explosions and hit men. Also, a little fantasy-weary right now.
HOWSOMEVER!!! if you are into hot cars, kissing dilemmas, explosions, and creepy-not-entirely-unsympathetic-hit-men types, also tortured young men and sassy know-it-all teen girls, AND a huge magical mystery, you will gobble this book up. Even I, jaded as I am, can see that.
Enough about me. What are you reading?
