Book Update:

I have decided to switch from “Imperial Women” to “The Good Earth”, as that’s more well-known. I didn’t start “Imperial Women” before switching. Also, I do not have a copy of “The Good Earth” yet, so the review will have to wait until a) I get the book and b) I read it. Sorry for the anticipated delay.


Book #10

I finished “Where the Red Fern Grows” on Monday, but apparently I am really bad at staying on track with reviewing. So, a date later than promised, here I am to give the next book. First I want to say that finally, after a bunch of mediocre, okay books, I finally got to read something amazing. Maybe I should just quit reading YA for this challenge. It never seems to turn out very well.

But anyway, the story, which I’m going to assume most of you know, was excellent. I’ve never been much of a dog person, but Billy, Little Ann, and Old Dan’s adventures were such fun to read about. The ending was naturally very sad. The only issue I had with this book was the lack of commas – a lot of times, a sentence that needed a comma wouldn’t have one. As a lover of Hamilton, I know how important commas are, so that bothered me, but the story itself made up for that.

The next book will probably take me a while…

This book is set in China. I’ve often said that if I were to tour the world, I’d go to China first. Not very practical, but I’ve always been a bit of a romantic. The font for this book is small, and it’s fairly long-ish, so I might take a while on it. I’ll try to post a review as soon as I finish it, rather than waiting around doing nothing for two or three days. 🙂
