Book Count #4

25. Secrets of the Tomb: Skull and Bones, the Ivy League, and the Hidden Paths of Power. by Alexandra Robbins. Informative. Interesting. Honest, not paranoid. A-

26. Haveli, by Suzanne Fisher Staples. Reread, from an assignment back in high school. A really great fictitious exploration of life in rural Pakistan. My only complaint is that the book ends on a cliffhanger that was clearly intended for a sequel, and the author has no plans to write one. LAME, so B+

27. Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood, by Rebecca Wells. Reread. Lord, I love this book. It's one of the rare ones that gets description and emotion exactly right. It also has the best narrative of the three (she wrote two more). A+

28. 1984, by George Orwell. I finally got around to reading this, which took a long time, considering how much I like dystopian fiction. Not bad. A-

29. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, by J.K. Rowling. Reread. Needed a review. A

30. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, by J.K. Rowling. Reread. I wanted to review for the upcoming Book 7. A

31. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, by Philip K. Dick. Reread from a long time ago. I was more interested in it this time (it was previously for a school assignment), and got much more out of it this time around. A-

32. Facing the Lion: Growing Up Maasai on the African Savannah, by Joseph Lemasolai Lekuton. A neat exploration of life as a Maasai, although the translation is rife with American slang, and I would have liked the book to be longer. B
