"I'm not typically interested in reading mystery books, but this book actually doesn't sound bad! I don't know what I would do if I found a dead person in my garden...."

"This sounds like an interesting mystery book!  I'll have to check this out.  If I found a dying man in my garden I would probably be in shock, but eventually call the police/ambulance."

"This seems like it'd be a very interesting book. If I found a dead man in my garden I would probably scream, cry and maybe even die myself."

"If I found a dying man in my garden,  I'd be very surprised. Namely because I don't have a garden. "

"If I found a dying man in my garden, I'd probably freak out at first, but get my self together and call the authorities. English people are always the greatest!"

"I like mysteries and based on your review I will check it out.  Murder mysteries are fun, you can follow and figure things out along with the book. "

"It's been a while since I've read a mystery so I'll probably check this out. I would probably call the police and then hyperventilate until they showed up."

"I think Egypt would be really fun to go to. I want to see the pyramids and many the many other great wonders of the world. Scuba diving is sweet! I want to do that too. "

"If I was in that situation, I would like to say that I would call 911, but I might just pretend not to notice and let someone else take care of it."

"I've never heard of this book before but it seems interesting. I like murder mysteries so I think I might give this one a try sometime. I like how you said that the characters are lovable, I like good characters as well. If I found a dying man…"

The Sweetness at the Bottom of This Book

Posted on May 28, 2014 at 1:45pm 16 Comments

                  I read The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley this month. The book is a mystery set in 1950 and features 11 year old Flavia de Luce living in the English countryside. Flavia explores her father's past in order to solve a very bizarre death that occurred at dawn in the de Luce garden. At the bottom of the whole situation is a jack snipe bird with an orange, English stamp upon its beak.

A Dinner

          This month I picked up another book from the "must read" table at Barnes and Noble due to the success last time. I read The Dinner by Herman Koch. This book is quite literally about a dinner. Two couples sit down to talk about their children's antics and off it goes from there. 

          Usually I don't like mysteries, but this author really reeled me in. The actually plot of the stories isn't too interesting, but the style of writing made it a very enjoyable read…

Darling, Bastard, Chipo, Godknows, Sbho, & Stina

Posted on March 31, 2014 at 3:50pm 0 Comments

        In March, I read the book We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo. The book is about a young girl, Darling, growing up in a poverty-stricken Zimbabwe and then moving in with her aunt in America. 

        I had much higher expectations for this book, because this could be a very interesting subject to write about with a lot of potential. I felt that We Need New Names just skimmed the top of a subject that otherwise has much depth to it. I was originally…
