Books, books, books

Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis

I've read this once before, and reread it for a book club. It was great to revisit Lewis' best book. It's the tale of Psyche and Cupid retold from one of her sister's point of view. I would recommend it to anyone who loves Greek Myth.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Anne Barrows

It's cute story told in the format of letters. The authors put on top of each letter who the letter is to and from which helps you keep up. The only problem I had with the book is that all of letters sound the same which was a disappointment especially because it is written by two people. Overall it's a great read for anyone.

Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George

It's another cute story of 12 princesses forced to fill their mother's contract with the evil king to dance each night for him until eventually he can trap them there to marry his 12 sons. Luckily they meet a young solider who can help them. It's pretty cheesy, but the writing is decent. It's definitely worth the read if you're up for a cute, easy read.

Sold by Patricia McCormick

This is a bit of a harder read. It's about a young girl from Nepal who is sold unknowingly as a prostitute. Over the course of the story she must choose what she wishes to do with her life. I recommend it, but offer a caution while it's not graphic, it is a hard read.
