Baby Proof

Baby Proof - Emily Giffin Page-turning book! Totally loved it :)

The Lady of the Rivers: A Novel (The Cousins' War)

The Lady of the Rivers (The Cousins' War, #3) - Philippa Gregory Just as great and addicting as all her other books, can't wait for the next Cousins' War book

Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer

Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer - John Grisham The story moved along quite well, and I enjoyed the entire thing.

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, Book 3)

Mockingjay - Collins Suzanne Wow. This entire trilogy was just fantastic. The end wasn't too sappy or cliche. I was really left thinking after it was all over. I feel that the way Katniss ended up wasn't hard to believe, whereas if she would've been happy-go-lucky I wouldn't have believed it. Fabulous.

The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games  - Suzanne  Collins I couldn't put it down! I stayed awake at night just thinking about myself in The Hunger Games!

For the King

For the King - Catherine Delors The book started off fairly exciting, but I found myself dozing off a few times in the middle. However, it really picked up in the last few chapters, and there were a couple surprises I didn't see coming. Overall, not bad. I think the large amount of French terms slowed down my reading as I am not very well-versed in French. I liked it though; it wasn't quite what I thought it would be about, but it was still good.

At the King's Pleasure (Secrets of the Tudor Court)

At the King's Pleasure - Kate Emerson Slow start but otherwise pretty good. After reading so many books from the point of view of King Henry VIII or one of his wives, it was refreshing to read from the point of view of someone else who was around when all these events were happening yet wasn't one of the aforementioned people.

The Red Queen (Cousins' War, Book 2)

The Red Queen - Philippa Gregory I found it incredibly impressive that the author could spend years thinking and writing from the point of view of Queen Elizabeth, the wife of King Edward during the York/Lancaster wars and then completely change her point of view to Margaret's on the opposite side. Reading about King Henry VIII's grandmother was truly fascinating, as I could see how her influence helped guide him into the monarch he was.
