Three out of four ain't bad

These days, there's a great deal of anxiously hunching over laptops because of a master's degree deadline that is rapidly approaching. Let's just say that the culminating assignment for an MLIS degree is no joke.

A tiny bit of reviewing in an actual newspaper was accomplished over the past couple of months, though. Ally Condie's final book in the Matched trilogy didn't thrill (go to the article here) but it wasn't nearly the slog of the second book of the series. Prodigy, the second book in Marie Lu's Legend series, was as solid as the first book. How often does that happen? (Check out my Prodigy review here).

Recently read and loved: Never Fall Down by Patricia McCormick (hard to read but unforgettable) and Spellbinder by Helen Stringer (taking a bit from the Harry Potter playlist, but great fun nonetheless).
