Book Club Mini-Reviews

Tea and a Book:

Palisades ParkPalisades Park by Alan Brennert
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tea and a Book didn't meet, because no one showed up.

I loved the book and was so happy I picked it as our June book.  I became invested in the characters and would get angry when my lunch breaks would end or it got so late I couldn't keep my eyes open to read even one more page.

Mercer County Girls Just Wanna Have Fun:

The Immortal Life of Henrietta LacksThe Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

We had a great discussion with this book, a lot of talk about ethical and moral standings with regard to science.  We also talked about how much has and hasn't changed since Henrietta's life in regards to medical coverage.

We can't wait to see the movie (whenever it gets made).

Forever YA:

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

DNF

I just couldn't get into this story. It felt like I was dropped into the middle of the story and I just couldn't get my footing.
